Okay, one of the MAIN reasons I love the Oscars is because of the maj, maj, MAJ fashion that is served. Like a free expensive glass of champagne… or an unexpected (yet totally expected) free birthday treat at your fav restaurant… the fashion is the icing on the awards cake. The Oscars are where we get to see the best runway looks on people that are (kinda sorta not really) just like us?! The best of the best from every major fashion Haus is reserved for Oscar night, and the red carpet is almost just as fun to watch as the award show itself. Amirite? Anyway, because I love this sort of thing, this blog is particularly particular and not super related to LA, but since the Oscars took place in LA I’m letting it slide. Oscars weekend is practically a recognized holiday – they close down Hollywood Blvd for crying out loud!
SO. All that said, Oscars 2018 was the year of takes on old Hollywood glam mixed with bold and jaw dropping numbers. This would be my personal best dressed list:
Zendaya: holy. bronze. goddess. *picks jaw up off the floor* – Zendaya’s looks was hands down my favorite of the night. So feminine, so classy, so absolutely stunning and Oscars worthy. That SLEEVE tho!! CAN WE TALK ABOUT THAT GORGEOUS BILLOWY SLEEVE. Zendaya never dissappoints, but tonight she truly outdid herself in this Giambattista Valli dress.
Gal Gadot: Take me back to the 20s, please! And let’s hope Gal Gadot is there. This fun and fresh Givenchy take on a 20s era gown was so refreshing to see on the red carpet; especially with all their throwback presenters. Also could this woman kindly stop being so perfect? You can’t be my hero, love interest, and idol all at once, it’s just not fair.
Jennifer Lawrence: Her Christian Dior gown was classic and simple yet so refined. A total freakin’ metallic glam goddess, if you ask me. And that hair and makeup? YAS. KWEEN. I’ll be honest at first I thought, “is that Oscars worthy” and on second glance and a closer look, it was immediately decided that yes – yes it most definitely is. Killed it all the way around in that Christian Dior number.
Nicole Kidman: Can she do any wrong? The structure of this Armani Prive gown gave me heart palpitations. That blue was absolutely S T U N N I N G on her, and typically I hate bows – no, like hate bows – but there’s something beautiful and structured about it that it totally makes the gown. Absolutely timeless.
