A Rundown on the Trends + Similarities at the Oscar's
Every red carpet is full of more than just beautiful people in beautiful gowns...it's full of trends - both existing and upcoming, showcasing a designer's best work and inspiration for our own personal everyday wardrobes. This year's Oscars (like every other award show in the past 4 months) was sprinkled with politics, and it showed on the red carpet. Celebrities including Ruth Negga, Karlie Kloss, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Barry Jenkins and even Sting added an ACLU blue ribbon to their ensemble. Emma Stone sported a Planned Parenthood pin in the left corner of her Givenchy gown.
On a lighter note, another "accessory" that kept popping up was Glossier's yet-to-be-launched "Cloud Paint", a gel-cream blush, inspired by NYC sunsets, featured on the cheeks of some gorgeous ladies. Last night, Cloud Paint could be seen on:
VISIONS IN WHITE
VISIONS IN RED
BALL GOWN SILHOUETTES
ANNDDDD...THE VANITY FAIR AFTER PARTY
SHEER + JEWELED
RUFFLES + FEATHERS
AND THINGS GOT A LITTLE SHINIER
Overall, I think my top favorite looks from the red carpet would have to be Emma Roberts, Isabelle Huppert, Karlie Kloss, Brie Larson and surprise, surprise, Janelle Monae.
My top five favorite looks from the Vanity Fair After Party:
Lily Collins, Viola Davis (white pantsuits for the win), Jessica Biel, Karlie Kloss, anddddd again, Miss Janelle Monae
Congrats to Janelle Monae and her stylist Maeve Reilly (@stylememaeve) on taking a risk and winning big. You deserve to celebrate a very successful, fashionably memorable night! Until next year.
