Life has gotten in the way of the blog, sorry for the spotty posts! I also have been a little uninspired recently. Between the Kardashians making more headlines than humanitarians, noticing my daily tech use being a little OOC, and trying to be dazzled by every interior/street style/recipe in all the blogs/posts/Instas/Magazines/Pins (of which there are thousands) it is all a little muddled. So for now, I am just writing when I have the time and when something fun or necessary comes up. We all get in a rut, I am in mine, but I am enjoying the world around me a bit more which will spark up posts in no time.
Luckily, the Spring shows in Paris and New York always get me excited, especially for Oscars. Which quite frankly has been a bit of a bore the last few years. Maybe my expectations are too high, but let's see if some of these ladies can bring it.
There are plenty of options to the Oscar nominees, presenters, and attendees this year. Lots of beading, without too much sparkle (my favorite), interesting silhouettes, and glam without the fuss (another favorite). Here are some dresses I picked and placed some ladies in them, plus some extras I hope to see as well.
This white Derek Lam is so gorgeous and would be perfect totally jeweled up. Cate will probably be in Armani, but this Marchesa would be so regal on her. I love the combo of this yellow and blue Jenny Packham. Maybe for a presenter?
This black Oscar de la Renta I put on Jennifer could be boring, but it has a gorgeous, big pink satin bow on the back that is killer. I love a sleeve and this Naheem Khan has the right kind of sparkle and has a great femininity to it. This blue Jenny Packham is young and fun, but dressy enough for the Oscars. Rachel would look so great in it.
Rooney is always a goth, scary ghost on the carpet. This Marchesa dress gives a nod to goth, but in such a pretty way. I would love to see her switch it up. Rosie Assoulin is one of my favorite designers right not, this white number is perfect for a presenter or one of the male nominees dates. Someone is going to go lamé (there was a lot of it on the runway) and this one (minus the choker. ps: why are chokers back????) is gorgeous and interesting. Sexy, but also fashion forward.
This black and white Derek Lam all jeweled up and on a modern gal would be perfect. And I think this garnet velvet Valentino was made for Julianne Moore. Maybe close up that low v a bit and it is perfect. Brie seems to like the sparkle and this Naeem Khan is stunning. The silhouette is classic, but the beading and work make it a show stopper.
This green Valentino HAS to make an appearance. I think it would be stunning on Saoirse. This Grecian drape Valentino with the gold body chain would be great. Love the pleats. Kerry is presenting and this soft violet Armani would look so pretty are her.
My love for Giambattista Valli runs deep. There are three dresses that would be so pretty on Sunday. Alicia would slay in this after it was tailored right. Jennifer is presenting and this is perfect for her bod and fun. Emily is preggo and this little nod to the era of Jane Austen would be beautiful.
If you add some extra lining to this McQueen it would be gorgeous on Charlize. And I know this is a stretch, but I love this Ralph Lauren. It would be a compete departure on Reese, but I think so great. And Sophia is going to vamp it up, so might as well go for it in this Versace.
Any favorites? What do you think???
Can't wait for red carpet!
