Oscars – The Cinderella Story
With the year nearing its third month, the red carpets of award season continue to sizzle. As designers pour out their F/W 2017 collections, Hollywood’s brightest stars came out to celebrate the Oscars, the most prestigious award ceremony of the season. Makes you think that most people would hire the creme de la creme of creative direction, but alas some people to fall short of the red carpet expectations that have been set before them. Now granted the fashion was not always the best, the night was still filled with enriched history that is known to happen at the Oscars, from the biggest win of the night Moonlight for best picture, we won’t mention the Steve Harvey moment, very funny Oscars, very FUNNY, I guess there wasn’t a teleprompter. Apart from the “mix-up”, our best dressed of the night Ms. Viola Davis made history by being the first black woman to be a part of the triple trinity of Oscar, Emmy and Tony.
Here are some of my favorite looks of the night:
Viola Davis in Custom Armani
Director Ava Duvernay in Ashi Studio, Ms. Duvernay took a political stance by picking a dress by a designer of a Muslim nation to prove we all stand together.
Janelle Monae in Elie Saab Haute Couture, I love this look for her. Its different but just right for her big personality yet small person.
Taraji P. Henson in custom Alberta Ferretti, as if Cookie could do any wrong in my book.
It never easy dressing a full-figured woman in feathers, but Ms. Spencer looks amazing in this feathered custom Marchesa number.
I love this dress, however, that hair needs to go.
Chrissy Teighen in Zuhair Murad
Kristen Dunst in Dior Haute Couture, perfect dress for a red carpet alum like herself.
Olivia Culpo in Marchesa, another red carpet perfecting by Marchesa.
John Ledgend in Gucci
David Oyelowo in custom tux andChristian Louboutin shoes
Mahershala Ali in Ermenegildo Zegna Couture and Monique Péan jewelry
The only thing I hate about this look is those necklaces, but Pharrell can do no harm when it comes to fashion.
And sadly sometimes the red carpet is not always so pretty. These are some of the #FUZIONfails of the night.
Nicole Kidman in Armani Privé, there is just something about this look that doesn’t sit right anywhere.
Scarlett Johansson in Azzedine Alaïa, I actually wasn’t sure this was an Alaïa dress, I have seen her do way better.
Sofia Boutella in Chanel Haute Couture, another dress that should have stayed on the runway and off the red carpet.
Halle, Halle Halle, what is going on with that hair love. Amazing Versace Couture dress but this hair just puts a damper on the entire look.
Hailee Sienfeild in Ralph & Russo, a great dress for the runway but when you aren’t runway height the extra fabric just weighs you down.
Priyanka Chopra in Ralph & Russo and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, another great dress just not a great red carpet selection.
Charlize Theron in Christian Dior Couture, I wish she would wear the dress from the Dior commercials to every red carpet event, who can get tired of seeing her in that.
Emma Stone in Givenchy Haute Couture and Tiffany & Co. jewelry, she looked so much like an Oscar but still rather boring.
Salma Hayek in Alexander McQueen, when your husband is majority shareholder in a design house its only right to wear the brand as much as possible, however this was not a great selection for Ms. Hayek.
