Last year, I was fortunate enough to be apart of E!’s Countdown to the Academy Awards segment and speak from the red carpet about what I would wear to an Oscar after party. I had an amazing time being able to be apart of the festivities. This year has been a whirl-wind of styling new and loyal clients and my wedding styling business has really taken off! Needless to say it was nice to be able to take a night off and simply enjoy the show.
The Oscars never seem to fail us when the rich and famous come out to play and honor their own. Highlights included the return of Billy Crystal, Sasha Baron Cohen showing up as his alter-ego and Angelina’s leg stealing everyone’s thunder. But enough about all of that, let’s get to the good stuff!
Here are a few of my favorite looks of the night:
Emma stone was my favorite look of the night. She always takes risks with her fashion choices on the red carpet and they always seem to pay off. I love the playful bow detail and the color that compliments her ivory skin. Michelle Williams was another favorite of the night in a crimson Louis Vuitton. Her hair looked fresh in her signature pixie cut and the silhouette gave a 1950′s feel.
I wasn’t as big of a fan of Gwyneth’s look as most people were. However, I did appreciate the modern feel she was going for in this white Tom Ford gown. also liked her relaxed up-do and of course her arms look flawless! Rooney Mara was one of those I was super excited to see walk the red carpet. Though her Gievenchy dress was not what I had expected, but she did look very glamorous and I loved her hair and red lip.
Jessica Chastain was one of my favorite beauty looks of the night. Her hair and makeup looked flawless and fresh. Her McQueen gown was a bit aging for my taste, but over all, she looked great. Kristin Wigg hit the mark again in a gold J. Mendel. The detailed bodice was the perfect compliment to the feathered skirt.
Navy blue is one of my favorite colors to see on the red carpet. Leslie Mann wore a stunning jeweled midnight blue Cavalli, which made her starberry locks look oh so chic! Tina Fey donned a classic navy Herrera gown with black sash and bold earrings.
