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.
While watching the Oscars last evening, broadcasted live from Los Angeles, it was interesting to see all the glitz and glamour that Hollywood has to offer. From the Red Carpet arrivals, to the packed seats at the Dolby Theater, it was an event that was brimming with achievement in film and fashion. The nominees of the academy awards, celebrity presenters, and guests know how important it is to look as fabulous as the event itself.
