As a girl who is ALL about dresses, I kinda can’t help but get a little giddy when it comes to the red carpet of The Oscars, that once a year date when us Brits can sit up late into the night wearing our pj’s to swoon at the glamour and beauty of Hollywood! Oh the prettiness! Dresses galore! And, the faces, the jewells, the hair, the shoes … it’s all so darn dreamy! For this years red carpet there was a delicious flurry of beads, sequins and embellishment, plunging necklines, and lots of white, pastels and golds. Reliably sophisticated and elegant. As it’s such a timely event it does seem a little stiff and straight and I keep my peepers out for the ladies who opt for something with a little quirk or attitude, but hey, I love classic glamour too… heck, I just freakin’ love a posh frock!
I find there’s always a handful of screen stars whose look I continually covet and am slightly bias toward, coz I just outright love everything about them; Marion Cotillard, Cate Blanchett and Emma Stone had it nailed for me before I even saw their looks for the night, I just know they will rock it. Every. Single. Time.
My most favourite 10 looks from The Oscars 2015 are these;
Scarlett Johansson in Atelier Versace. A great shape, the fabric looks almost like a vintage crepe, the green was a good stand-out choice and the beaded necklace is just damn perfect styling.
I’m not a massive Lady Gaga fan but I love the texture and the exaggerated stiffness of the sleeves, she perfectly blended classic with a modern sharpness.
Rosamund Pike in Givenchy, just, oh my, just so beautiful…that waist detail!
Emma Stone in Elie Saab, in my opinion, just about the most beautiful girl in the whole wide World, and this golden gown makes her glow, big time.
Marion Cotillard in Dior Couture, I ADORE this, Marion isn’t afraid to steer slightly off centre with her fashion choices, this is just divine.
Cate Blanchett in John Galliano with Tiffany and Co. necklace, so fresh and minimal, her elegance is mesmerizing; a brilliant choice.
Eddie Redmayne’s wife Hannah Bagshawe wore McQueen, a faultless choice for a girl who is being catapulted into the spotlight with her new husband; simple but with signature McQueen detailing of feathers and jewells, standing out with an understated beauty.
Sienna Miller in Oscar De La Renta, so simple, I love the velvet ribbon detail, her make-up looks a little heavy on the contouring, but, she looks absolutely beautiful.
Jennifer Lopez in Elie Saab is probably the most classic ‘Oscars’ dress of my choices, it’s pretty dreamy, there’s nothing I don’t adore about it.
Her usual style doesn’t make my eyes pop but, in this custom Marchesa gown she looked awesome, the silhouette is just superb.
