Folks! The Oscars took place last night and as much as I love movies (I do!), I’m here for the red carpet fashion (as always). But ehrm, if you do thought that the red carpet fashion was a bit ‘blah’ (I did), you have to look at the red carpet fashion of Vanity Fair – it was more playful, memorable and pushing the fashion limits. So this article and highlight of last night’s fashion of course includes both the Oscars and Vanity Fair’s after party!
Oscars Red Carpet
The most memorable and interesting gown of last night was undoubtedly Florence Pugh’s turquoise dress. Both the color, the ruffled design and the shoes were unexpected choices but nevertheless magical. Loved how controlled the look seemed, with everything being perfectly in place. Perhaps I’d chosen another hair style and necklace, but not gonna complain when the rest of the look was so good.
A classic, glam, look from yesterday is Brie Larson’s gown. The cape/dress combination is a must if you want to embrace a royal, respectful look. Love the combination with the gold and the stripes of the dress. Great choice of shoes too, although both earrings and hair could’ve been more interesting.
Portman also went for the dress/cape combination. Loved the match of gold and black, majestic and good. Loved the delicate pattern of her dress and the transparent parts. The gold colored belt is really chic and controls the fabric of the dress well. The look is perfect with her bob cut and the gold earrings.
Vanity Fair Red Carpet
But let’s be honest here and state that the looks of Vanity Fair were the ones to deliver the fashion party. Kerry Washington’s set was so chic with the Egyptian style. Gorgeous to do the hieroglyphs in gold. Love her matching shoes and gold earrings!
Talk about bringing the 80s to the red carpet. This fluffy, spacious and semi-transparent dress is just so delicate, sweet and a homage to spring. Love the pastel colored flowers, the statement sleeves and the maxi fabric. It’s fresh, it’s youthful and it’s fun to look at. Love how perfect her lips are matching the faded coral flowers, genius styling!
And speaking of sleeves, how good aren’t these voluminous ones? There’s something incredibly stylish with voluminous sleeves and a deep v-cut. It’s a good balance of soft shapes and sharp lines. Love the maxi style of the dress that adds drama to the sleeves. The eye makeup is so chic too as well as the silver jewelries. Yes to this look!
I’m normally not too fond of combining a short dress with heavy fabric “surrounding” it. But I must say this look Swanepoel is working is trés chic. It looks more like a really glam, fitted, playsuit with a dress twisting around it. Love how the blue fabric frames the playsuit and how it’s defining the waist and adds a sleeve. Gorgeous choice of color, gorgeous styling and well-done by Swanepoel to work all that fabric. And oh my, from behind it looks like a full dress! See the next slide, it’s fashion magic.
But how chic isn’t Sarah Paulson in this look? Love the collar, the bold buttons, the fringe, the maxi length, the sequins and her hair. So fierce, so sharp and so on point. Just love the simple daily details (collar, buttons) and how they’ve been maximized in a glam way. Gorgeous how the sequins and the fringe are complementing each other. The earrings and the sharp haircut is framing the outfit lovely!
