Let’s be honest – the best part about the Oscar’s is not the actual awards portion of the evening. I, like most, heavily favor the Red Carpet. Acting like the non-expert fashion critic that I am, I live for chilling in my comfiest sweats and judging who’s wearing what. The looks from this year’s Oscar’s DID NOT disappoint my judge-fest, let me tell you. Here’s a quick break-down of my fave and least fave Oscar looks by trend.
Metallics came in hot this year. Bluntly, I was obsessed with Gal Gadot’s Givency ensemble. J-Law’s Dior look was fab. And Sandra Bullock, honestly, can do no wrong in Louis Vuttion. Overall, metallics were a hit this year.
Ah, bows. Personally, not a fan. Saorise Ronan in Calvin Klein was sweet, but semi-forgettable. Nicole Kidman looked PHENOMENAL in Armani Privé – she did the “bow trend” well. Emma Stone’s LV suit was unique, but un-tailored and frumpy in my opinion.
There is nothing I love more than simplicity on the red carpet. Margot Robbie in Chanel was not only my favorite look of this year’s show, but my favorite red-carpet look of the ENTIRE award season. Mary-J Blige look great in Atelier Versace – simplicity does her justice. And Jane Fonda, looked beautiful; I am seriously curious as to how I can age like she has. So in conclusion, white on the red-carpet was a huge success.
Honestly, not my favorite trend. I truly do not find it necessary to match your clutch to your evening gown. Emily Blunt’s Schiaparelli Haute Couture look was sweet, but a little eh. Viola Davis’s Michael Kors collection look was a tad off-putting. And while I did love Allison Janney’s Best Supporting Actress acceptance speech and dress, I did not see the need to ALSO carry a red clutch. Monochromatic looks at the Oscar’s this year did not do it for me.
Till next year, ladies!
