At the moment, I’m in Las Vegas having an unbelievable time at the Event Solutions’ Idea Factory conference, but last night my attention was turned toward another sunny city — Los Angeles and the Academy Awards. Anyone who knows me, knows I love fashion, and the Oscars are like the Superbowl of Hollywood fashion.
Did you see the show? I noticed lots of bridal white, and I couldn’t help but take some wedding inspired notes as I watched the stars walk the red carpet. Here are my favorite white dress trends from the night:
3. Gwyneth’s Cape
I know folks might not agree, but I thought Gwyneth Paltrow’s white Tom Ford ensemble was stunning, and I LOVED her big bracelet and matching ring. My only beef? Her awful ponytail! She was at the Oscars not the gym!
4. Short Sleeves
As far as I’m concerned, Octavia Spencer was an Oscar winner AND a fashion winner last night. She looked incredible in her off-white jeweled Tadashi Shoji gown that gathered at the waist.
5. Mermaid Train
Say what you will about Rooney Mara’s look, but I like that she’s not afraid to take fashion risks. The bodice of her delicate white Givenchy Couture gown wasn’t my favorite, but I did like that it was a bold, dramatic choice. And I always love a beautiful train.
6. Long Sleeves
I thought Shailene Woodley’s long-sleeve white Valentino Couture gown was a little mature for her, but she looked like no one else on the red carpet. Long-sleeves are huge in bridal right now, too, and I thought the details and cut-out design were fun and unique.
Dear Readers, which Oscar gowns were your favorites? Which of these red-carpet looks do you think would translate best to the bridal aisle?
