Looking through the red carpet photos from tonight Oscars and I’m seeing alot more colour, particularly lots of blues and purples. There are also alot of trailing hemlines and straight skirts as apposed to fuller ones. Here’s a few of my favourites, not forgetting my man of the evening and also, just for tonight, my couple of the evening.
1) Virginia Madsen
I have a feeling this dress is inspired by Black Swan what with the feathery detail and the black and white personalities. The thick black waistband adds some strength to the softness of the material. The one shoulder gives it a modern touch.
2) Mila Kunis
This colour really suits Mila and I really love the slashes of transparency through the skirt which shows just a hint of her legs. The lace detail to the neckline almost looks like her bra is peeking through, as if she didn’t already look sexy enough.
3) Hailee Steinfeld
I know I say this everytime, but just look how adorable she is, lets hope she doesn’t go off the rails like other stars who started out young – Lindsay Lohan, need I say any more? Hailee looks so precious and shes wearing heels at 14! I’ve only started wearing heels in the past year and I’m 21.
4) Florence Welch
Here’s Florence wearing her trademark neutral colours but she can get away with it as her hair is so fiery. I really love the ruffles skirt and the bow around the waist is super cute.
5) Amy Adams
The thing I love most about Amy’s red carpet look is how shes accessorised her navy blue sparkly dress with emerald green necklace and bracelet set. They make it stand out even more. This sequined number fits her perfectly like a glove.
6) Cate Blachett
This dress has such a vintage feel to it but the light lilac colour keeps it up-to-date. The slightly rectangular sleeves make it unique and I especially love the yellow beading across the shoulders and back
7) Jennifer Hudson
Wow! Check out Jen! Shes looking fantastic after the weight loss. The colour is bright to make sure all eyes are on her and her classic up do with her hair helps add a touch of Hollywood glamour.
8) Scarlett Johansson
This is gorgeous. The cutout back makes sure shes not covered up like a nun and I’m really loving the dishevelled hair too. This has a sort of oriental feel to it with the delicate pattern and the purpley pink colour.
9) Penelope Cruz
Looking amazing after just 1 month since the birth of her son, Leo with hubby Javier, Penelope looks on fire in this red hot number. She does appear to have lost some of her curves, especially in her hips. Also thumbs up to Javier rocking a three piece suit – we all know how much I love a man in a waistcoat.
10) Camila Alves
Matthew McConaughey’s missus looks fab in this voluminous dress. The low v-neck and thin straps give it an exotic feel which suits Camila’s tanned skin tone so well. Its a very simple dress with no pattern or extravagant pieces sewn on, yet she makes it look like the most exquisite dress in the world.
Man of the evening – Russell Brand
If someone would’ve told you before hand that an attendee was going to be wearing a checked shirt to the ceremony, you first thoughts would probably have been ‘Checked shirt? On the red carpet? What are they thinking?’. Well here we have Mr Brand wearing just that. However I think hes pulled it off quite nicely as the black collar makes it more dressed up and hes right on trend with midnight blue. He wouldn’t be Russell Brand if he wasn’t a little bit different to every other man now would he?
Couple of the evening – Armie Hammer & Elizabeth Chambers
I was going to give Armie the award for Man of the evening (again), but then I clocked his wife and just had to give them an award of their own. Shes wearing a dark grey satin dress with darker ruffles underneath and hes wearing a black suit with a darker strip down each leg and darker collar around the neck and chest of his jacket. They just fit together so perfectly.
I would love to hear your thoughts on tonight’s red carpet fashion. Is there anyone I’ve picked that you agree with? Or maybe there’s someone you feel I have left out? All kinds of comments are welcome =]
