The Oscars are less than a week away, and fashionistas everywhere (myself included) are anxiously awaiting the red carpet arrivals. Here are some of the trends I think we’ll see at this year’s Oscars, and how women everywhere can get the look-for-less at David’s Bridal!
Stars like Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and Elle Macpherson could have passed as brides at this year’s Golden Globes. At the SAG awards, Viola Davis and Kaley Cuoco truly looked aisle-worthy. Bridal-inspired gowns are hot at the moment, and I see this continuing at the Oscars. I love this pink strapless gown that perfectly emulates the blush and bridal trend!
Updates to the Classic
Red, black and white are timeless hues donned by both old and new Hollywood. Who can forget the black Givenchy gown with pearls worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s or the red gown Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman? This year, I think there will be major modern updates to classic colored dresses—updates like sequins, cutouts, open backs and low necklines. This one-shoulder beaded gown with cutouts boasts red carpet style for the modern day glam girl.
Traditionally, stars have shined on the red carpet with jewelry like diamond statement necklaces, crystal embellished bangles and chandelier earrings. This year, we’re seeing stars like Michelle Williams, Charlize Theron and Busy Phillips don headbands finished with crystals and pearls. The trend, which can easily be replicated for less, may shine during this award show.
Happy Oscar watching and shopping!
