There were traditionally lots of black, nude, red and white dresses last night at the Academy Awards red carpet but there was one trend that truly caught my eye. The mixture of black&white. A couple of celebs seemed to have a problem choosing between black and white so why not to choose both? What some of them wore were true Oscar worthy choices. Come inside to check them out!
Few actresses nominated last night chose this trend and they all presented it in their own unique way. Let’s start with Reese Witherspoon in Tom Ford who wore a beautiful white gown with only two black stripes highlighting her waist and the neckline area. She looked stunning! An Oscar winner from last night Patricia Arquette chose a Rosetta Getty dress which was blocked into two parts. Lower part of her dress was totally black as from waist up it was white.
One of my favorites from last night had to be Julianne Moore in custom Chanel that in my opinion was a true masterpiece! It took Chanel team apparently 927 hours to make it! A white gown has been embellished with black Chopard jewels. The detailing on that dress has to be the best of the whole night! And then comes Meryl Streep in her custom Lanvin look. Her skirt and tuxedo jacket have been black white, as contrast she paired them with white a blouse. Very chic and classic. So Meryl!
Surprisingly enough women were not the only ones to sport this trend on the red carpet last night. There were couple of actors who followed them and with success. Adrien Brody wore a Dolce & Gabbana white tux with black detailing while Kevin Hart opted for a white Lanvin tux, black shirt and Christian Dior shoes and brooch. Wow! Those guys know how to make an impact!
I must say I am a fan and I am really curious how will high street shops evolve it into Spring/Summer proposals? I feel like I am covered in this category. Come check out my yesterdays’ Instagram J
