Fashion Friday: Prepping for the Oscars

As always I’m pretty excited to watch the Oscar’s red carpet this weekend and I spent some time this morning scouting the recent fashion week shows for dresses I think may be great on the red carpet. Honestly, it was hard- I’m not loving a lot of the looks out there right now. And if I see one more celebrity in a see through skirt I will stab myself in the eye. I’m hoping for some more ladylike and straight up glamorous styles. What about you?

I don’t love the metallic belt or the headdress, but I do love the color and feminine silhouette of this Zuhair Murad number. This black Donna Karan dress is insanely sexy in a structured way.  With an updo and huge emerald and diamond statement earrings- kaboom.

I’d love this sweet dress bu Badgley Mischka on a young attendee- an Emma Stone type.

A simple yet elegant white Herrera and bohemian influences jewels from Naeem Khan (I can so see this on Leslie Mann for some reason).

Old school Hollywood glamour from Oscar.

Love the halter neck of this plum Herrera gown and the deep V and detailing on this Christian Siriano.

I think there will be a lot of red/pink/coral and cobalt blue/bold violet on the carpet. I am OBSESSED with the red Elie Saab dress (which is off the rack, actually, for a cool $12k)

I’d pair that bad boy with some coral and diamond statement earrings to compliment the belt and call it a day.

A couple more dresses from Bergdorfs that would be amazing- this blue and black Oscar that has a sculptural top or this other Oscar with a polka dot bustier, perfect for someone young!

It’s been a tough week, so sorry this isn’t more thorough or interesting- I’m hanging on by a thread this morning.  The only piece of fashion that seems to make sense around these parts right now is this tee shirt I made for me and Lindsey because we always joke that instead of going to the gym we just worry a lot as a method of weight management.
