Oscar Fashion: 2015 Red Carpet
I always look forward to the Red carpet's of award season. I'm forever excited to see the borrowed dresses of the most talented and famous designers in the world, the most expensive jewels on loan and what hard working stylists have come up with for their uber famous clients. Again with the Oscars I didn't see anything that was over the top amazing, but several lovely gowns. I do long for the days of authentic dressing and a lot less "entourage" influence when it comes to the choices of the celebrities. Decades owner Cameron Silver came up with the best term, "UnManufactured Glamour" exactly what I think is missing in 'celebrity fashion' but that is an entirely different blog. Gone are the days of the truly chic and seemingly effortless starlet's who attended such affairs in dresses and jewels they actually owned and chose themselves. Without further adieu ....
Here are my nominees for BEST DRESSED at the 2015 Oscar's
Margot Robbie wearing Saint Laurent & Vintage Van Cleef & Arpels Necklace
Nancy O'dell in Gauri And Nainika gown
Kelly Osborne in Rita Vinieris
Reese Witherspoon in Tom Ford
Jamie Chung - Yanina couture
Jennifer Lopez in Elie Saab Haute Couture
Emma Stone also in Elie Saab
Best Party Dress
Dita Von Teese in Zuhair Murad
Gwyneth Paltrow in Ralph & Russo gown with this romantic floral detail that I somehow fell in love with. I liked the simple styling and the ruby accents from the MAJOR custom earrings.
Anna Hu Fire Phoenix earrings (priced at $425,000), consisting of two pear-shaped cabochon Rubellites set in white gold amid white-and-yellow diamonds; blue, pink and purple sapphires; spinels and paraiba tourmalines.
Emeralds stole the show for me last night.
Dita Von Teese flashed her emeralds, signature manicure on Intagram (and some great dress detailing). Jewels by jewels by Doves by Doron Paloma and Leticia Linton.
Scarlet Johansen wearing an emerald & diamond Piaget ear cuff
Best Necklace is Vintage Van Cleef & Arpels, this piece was designed in 1938 for the Duchess of Windsor AKA Wallis Simpson. Gold, Diamond and Sapphire show stopper is worth a cool 1.5M and is dubbed the Zipper Necklace.
