THE BEST RED-CARPET LOOKS AT THE OSCARS 2017

Following the disaster that was the D&G’s AW17 show, in which the Italian fashion-house appeared to have morphed into Forever 21, I was in desperate need of some reassurance that the fashion world hadn’t completely lost its touch. And thankfully, I found such reassurance on the dazzling Oscars red-carpet. The stars graced the vibrant red carpet and swept viewers and lucky attendees away in a daze of old-Hollywood glamour. The winner of Best Actress, Emma Stone, looked like a real life Oscar in a shimmering, golden Givenchy couture gown covered in intricate beadwork. Taraji P. Henson stunned in a floor-length velvet Alberta Ferretti gown, along with the masses of dazzling stars who graced the red-carpet. Overall, the Oscars was full of fashion winners who managed to restore my faith in the industry.

THE GOLDEN GLOBES – BEST DRESSED

And so it begins!

Award season is finally upon us. With months of red carpet glamour to come our January blues can be kept at bay. This weekend kick started award season with the Golden Globes, which was dominated by the most anticipated movie of the year inspired by old Hollywood musicals, La La Land. And last night’s award ceremony was a real City of Stars, with so much glitz and glamour on display. Emma Stone and Lily Collins really stole the show in elegant, flowy, dazzling, pale pink gowns from Valentino and Zuhair Murad. Sarah Paulson, Michelle Williams, Ruth Negga and Kerry Washington were also among the best dressed at last night’s glamour-fest.

Emma Stone

Emma Stone’s performance in La La Land may have bagged her the award for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, but it was her stunning, starry, pale pink Valentino gown which was the real show stopper last night. When asked about her gown on the red carpet the actress responded “it’s pink and there are stars on it” which some may say is an apt description, but does not give this exquisite gown enough credit if you asked me.

Lily Collins

Lily Collins wore a romantic, pink Zuhair Murad Couture gown, littered with intricate floral embroidery that was fit for a princess heading to the most exclusive of balls, never mind the Golden Globes. Lily stole the limelight in this beautiful feminine gown which was  perfectly accompanied with a bold red-lip, subtle rosy-pink eyeshadow and a braided-do that Rapunzel herself would envy.
