The Oscars red carpet is a time when I see dresses and jewels that I can only dream of. There were gorgeous stand out pieces this year. The gowns that I adored were those that were classic with a modern twist.
Charlize Theron’s long black gown from Christian Dior haute couture was one of my favorites. Sophisticated modern details made this dress work. The designs included the illusion of being strapless along with a sheer section for her dress train. It was a fine example of how a black dress can always be recreated and modernized. Black will never stop being a favorite dress choice. And with $15 million worth of diamonds, what could go wrong.
Elegant white and beige dresses were a favorite this year. I think Naomi Watts topped this look. She looked chic and elegant. Naomi’s look was completed with a spider like diamond necklace that gave a modern twist.
Wearing red on the red carpet is such a statement. And Jennifer Lawrence looked fierce and gorgeous. Her amazing Christian Dior red gown, her sleek hair, her strong poses, her $2 million Neil Lane necklace down her back. Her little fall on the red carpet did nothing to spoil her perfect look.
Cate Blanchett wearing Armani Privé. That dress was so delicate with beautiful embellishments. Sheer at the top with bits that glistened. Cate looked like she had just stepped out of a high fashion fairy tale. Absolutely stunning. Congratulations to Cate.
So many gorgeous dresses. So very envious. But remember, it is not only the dress but the lady who wears it who brings the confidence and aura to complete an outfit.
