Oscars 2015 Red Carpet Review

As Hollywood heated up with the Golden Globes in January, everyone was awaiting the grand finally of the Oscars. This year, on February 22nd, The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences honored the best in the film industry at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, CA. As part of the celebration, the nominees and other celebrities made their way across the red carpet to get their spot in front of the cameras.


Some of the men who stood out in the crowd with their fashion choices, as well as their performances, were David Oyelowo from the movie “Selma”, who wore Pantone’s 2015 color of the year with his Marsala colored tuxedo with red satin vest, bow tie, and shiny black oxfords. Also, Eddie Redmayne, who won best actor for his portrayal of Steven Hawking in “The Theory of Everything”, wore a classic navy tuxedo with contrasting, notched black lapels, and black suede loafers. Of course, actor Jared Leto was as usual, wearing a style of his own with his powder blue suit with satin lapels and stark white shirt and matching white oxfords.

At the Oscars there is usually a few amazing gowns, as well as a few that just don’t make the mark. One of the amazing ones was worn by Emma Stone, who wore a long sleeve, beaded lace dress in a fantastic Spring green color by Ellie Saab. It was the perfect shade for her deep red hair, had a cut that clung to her curves, and had the sexy details of a front slit to her thighs and a deep plunging back.


Another great gown was worn by Scarlet Johansson, who wore a forest green, v-neck dress by Versace that showed her curvy figure, without being too revealing. The outfit was also enhanced by her stone encrusted bib collar necklace and the asymmetry of her left dangle earring.


Lastly, it is unlikely that Lady Gaga can make anything but a statement, but her custom design white gown from designer Alaia kind of looked like it was made from sequin encrusted felt and the bright red, winged elbow-gloves looked like she was ready to head to the kitchen for some dish scrubbing.

Celebrity Fashion Trends – The 2014 Oscars

Last week marked the 86th annual Academy Awards, which were held at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, CA. As well as the excitement for the nominees for Best Actress, Best Actor, and Best Film, there is always the excitement of which celebrities would be wearing what designers.


On very special moment was when Matthew McConaughey won an Oscar for lead actor in the “Dallas Buyers Club”. It was his first nomination ever and he looked stunning as always in his nicely fitted white tuxedo jacket with black vest, tie, and trousers. Matthew’s wife Camilla Alves was wearing an elegant blush pink gown by Gabriela Cadena with shoulder pads, a fully draped left arm, and a matching clutch.


Another guy who caught the attention of the film world was Jared Leto, who won for Best Supporting Actor in the “Dallas Buyers Club” also. Jared looked dashing in his crisp white tuxedo jacket, black trousers, and a pop of color with his bright red bow tie.


Two very famous ladies to grace the red carpet were Lady Gaga and Liza Minelli. Lady Gaga is usually outlandishly dressed in less than an a napkin and meat “purses”, but she actually looked quite statuesque in her strapless nude gown with tonal embossing and a long pink scarf draped across her neck and back.

Liza, however, was quite theatrical in her cobalt blue pantsuit. The “off the shoulder” look would have been fine if the top wasn’t so oversized and shapeless. Liza’s blue streak in her hair was an attempt at a modern trend. Her diamond dangle earrings and bold bracelet were a fantastic choice however.
