I couldn’t just let the Red Carpet Fashion Parade that is the Oscars pass me by without at least mentioning a few of my faves when it came to fashion, hair and beauty looks plus it’s always interesting to note a few of the big hair and makeup trends for Oscars 2014!
First up my fashion faves….
Most of the outfit choices were very “Old Hollywood” – elegant, classic and quite safe but still there were some stunners!
All white on the night – Kate Hudson and Calista Flockhard looked positively radiant!
Pale, blush peach and pink were popular picks… as chosen by Penelope Cruz and Camilla Alves.
Blue hues are always a classic choice and Sandra Bullock and Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong’o looked amazing in their gowns!
Kerry Washington and Elsa Pataky made sure that as mamas-to-be they rocked the Red Carpet proving that pregnancy is no excuse to leave your style behind! !
Then there were a few who really stood out due to their unique picks. Jennifer Lawrence once again stepped out in red Dior and looked amazing!Obviously!
Another Dior fan, Charlize Theron, wore an uber-glam black gown which was pure “goddess” …
And John Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, wore a very unique floral patterned Monique Lhullier gown which I really loved, although some may disagree!
What would I have worn had I been strutting my stuff at the Academy Awards… I really loved the Reem Acra outfit worn by Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
When it came to trends for tresses, there was a clear winner: anything long and side-swept! I love this look and will certainly be trying it out myself at soon. Maybe even this weekend at the wedding I’m attending!
Behold the other hairstyle that was probably the most coveted on the night…
The most popular makeup look focused on the eyes and played down the lips. Lots of smokey eyes, huge false lashes, minimal blush and pale pink/ nude lips in various tones. I love this look as it’s a really glowy and elegant look and seems super easy to do myself! I’m definitely inspired to try it.
So what do you think of my faves? Do they match yours or did you spy someone I didn’t mention? Would love to hear your thoughts… Leave a comment below!
