Last night was the Oscars (yup it is already that time of the year) and damn did it present some of the best looking dresses along with some of the most talented actresses and actors of course. I think this could be officially called the year of the sleek dress. With nary a fairytale dress in sight (bar JLo off-course), 2015 saw most actresses reaching for the fitted or sheath dress. And it really worked!
My favourite was also the biggest surprise of the night – Rita Ora in Marchesa. She managed the perfect balance between dramatic and glamorous. Everything from the fit (nothing overtly sexy) to the accessories and beauty look was perfection. I think this is the first time I’ve chosen a mermaid look over the ball gown!
Black and white was clearly also a theme of the night with many of my favourite dresses falling into this category. Jenna Tatum deserves special mention however as she turned what was just another boring white dress (with a cape) into something awesome! Another triumph of accessories (that belt) and beautiful draping.
Jennifer Lopez’s dreamy Elie Saab dress was everything I dream of, but I felt like her cleavage sort of distracts from the overall prettiness of the dress. Love her lip colour though!
In the final two spots are America Ferreira and Emma Stone, both in different shades of green surprisingly! I only wish Emma’s was closer in tone to America’s dress.
Which were your favourite looks of the night?
