This year’s red carpet style did not disappoint. Dress after dress impressed me, but don’t let this glamorous affair fool you- Hollywood is still tacky! I visited it in 2010 on a trip to Los Angeles and it’s basically a boulevard of tacky souvenir shops, The Walk of Fame and a wax museum.We had a fun day out between universal studios, the wax museum and copious amounts of fro-yo, but it’s definitely not the most amazingly beautiful place.
Here are my favourites from the night.
I’m of the opinion: when in doubt, wear red! It’s always a winner for weddings and formal occasions. There was so much red at this year’s Oscars and it’s that bright post-box shade that I love. I liked the simplicity of Dakota Johnson‘s complete look from the dress shape, which showed off her killer body, the single strap detail, her barely there make-up and her non fuss ponytail. She stayed true to herself and I love her porcelain skin tone.
In my eyes, Lupita Nyong’o can do no wrong in terms of fashion. For me, she always gets it right. She can wear any colour and I’m blown away by her style, as she brings something different. Her Calvin Klein dress at this year’s Oscars was embellished with 6,000 pearls! She was yet again the showstopper of the night.
Jennifer Aniston wowed in embellished Versace. Her body was impeccable and she stayed true to her own personal style with her casual, just-rolled-out-of-bed hair styling and minimalist make-up. Gorgeous!Julianne Moore also chose an embellished gown, custom made from Chanel. It was beautiful.
I thought Sienna Miller looked really beautiful in Oscar de la Renta. Her hair pinned back showed off her dewy skin and I loved the high neckline and ribbon. There was something very classic and vintage looking about this look for me.Margot Robbie wore black with sheer sleeves and a deep neckline. Everyone seemed to love this, but I can’t say I did. I was more impressed by her accessories and styling. I liked her striking neckpiece a lot with its tassel, her sleek blonde bob and classic red lip (it never goes out of style!)Pale pink:
Love it or hate it? I kind of loved Gwyneth Paltrow in Ralph and Russo. She’s known for her minimal looks and I myself am gravitating more and more to classic, simple and tailored clothing. Usually I dislike asymmetrical, one sleeved dresses, but the clean lines showed off her figure so well and there was something I loved about the oversized shoulder detail.
