White was Red Hot
While the carpet may have been red the color that dominated the Oscars this year was white. While some A-list actors preferred black, red and gold the most dominant colors were silver, ivory and white.
One of doB’s favorites in white was Gwyneth Paltrow. In her Tom Ford sleek gown with a cape she stunned us with minimal jewelry, simple makeup and pulled back hair. We know a custom Tom Ford dress might not be in the budget and we don’t know where we would wear it if it were but we think white is hot for spring so we say go white with a touch of black in Helmut Lang’s Colorblock Dress or for another option that won’t stretch the budget try this Silk Contrast Belted Dress from Halston Heritage.
Milla Jovovich beaded one shoulder Elie Saab gown was ethereal. The dress stunned and wowed us, never mind her curves. We love DVF’s must have shimmering and sleek Tadd Embellished Dress for an inspired take all of your own.
Speaking of curves, best supporting actress Octavia Spencer showed off her curves in an off white embellished Tadashi Shoji dress that was a work of art.
As for those who didn’t go white, we loved Jessica Chastain’s embroidered Alexander McQueen black and copper dress. Her red hair looked red hot. For a similarly bold look from a designer we love check out Carven’s One Shoulder Jacquard Dress. But it’s pricy and if you don’t have a celebrity pay check to pay for it, check out this amazing One-Shoulder Sunburst-Print Dress to remind us spring fashion is right around the corner.
Stacy Keibler’s spun gold Marchesa dress turned many a head. For under $300 check out Trina Turk’s Meade Metallic Dress.
Michelle Williams chose a Coral peplum Louis Vuitton number and looked fresh and sweet. We love the look of peplum and it’s white hot for spring. Check out Marc by Marc Jacobs Marfa Peplum Dress.
So whether you are walking the carpet or hitting the road we at doB say find inspiration from this years Oscars.
Go out and shine like a star.
