Oscar trends we wish we could wear

March 1st, 2011 1 Comment

As you might have noticed, my days of galas and gowns are long gone.  They were few and far between in the first place…that was actually a blessing. Getting picture perfect is a lot of hard work – and when you have to schlep your own couture around New York AND keep your hair and makeup in place, it’s almost impossible!

Sorry, I got side-tracked.

Oscars. Actresses.  Amazing dresses.  Bling out the yin yang.  Ok, I’m back.

I’m not going to bore you with who I think did it right and who should shoot their stylist.

What I think is noteworthy were the bold trends that the actresses chose for the event. I loved them all!

1.  Ponytails

(See also Nicole Kidman and Anne Hathaway onstage in tux)

2.  Emeralds

(Also Reese Witherspoon)

3.  Purple

(Also worn by Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson)

A quick note on color.  Reese was the only actress other than Helena Bonham Carter that I saw wearing black.  All of the favorite fashionistas wore colorful gowns.  Other popular colors were red, nude, and silver.

4.  Volumonous Trains

(Also Hilary Swank, Anne Hathaway, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Hudson)

5.  Cut-outs

(Also Scarlett Johansson)

Will we be able to translate these to real life? Probably not to this extent, but it would be fun to throw one into a spring wedding ensemble!
