We know that accessories were huge at The Oscars, but what other trends rocked the red carpet this year?
The big colors for Oscar night -- cream and red. So many stars, including Anne Hathaway, Melissa George, and Jessica Biel, opted for the freshness of cream. The only trick with this look -- it’s best executed with a touch of a tan, or you run the risk of looking as ghostly as Evan Rachel Wood (at left). Amy Adams and Heidi Klum looked ravishing in red. Actress Amanda Seyfried channeled Madonna’s “Material Girl” look in a gorgeous red Valentino gown, although the oversized bow at the waist was a little much.
Asymmetrical gowns were all the rage. Best Actress winner Kate Winslet wore a goddess-inspired one shouldered YSL gown in silver tones. Slumdog Millionaire’s Freida Pinto (at right) looked amazing in blue again, in a one-sleeved shimmery John Galliano gown. Asymmetrical looks work for almost every figure, because they accentuate your shoulders and collarbones -- an area almost every woman can show off!
Stars went for the fit and flare look with mermaid gowns. Vanessa Hudgens (at left), Beyonce, and actress Melissa George all wore the stunning mermaid style on the Oscar red carpet. This bold, eye-catching look is a body conscious one -- best to skip the carbs on the day you’re planning to wear this trend!
Metallic shimmer continued to be THE trend at the Oscars. Tina Fey has never looked better than she did on Oscar night, stepping out in a body-conscious gold dress. One of my favorite looks of the night was actress Leslie Mann (at right), who paired a plunging gold and silver mosaic Pamella Roland gown with loose waves. One thing’s for sure -- metallic is here to stay, at least until next season!
