I’ll Have What She’s Having: I’ll be live blogging the best of the Oscar Red Carpet Fashion (come back during the night for more)
Rosamund Pike (above) in a red, form-fitting gown is going to be a hard one to beat. absolutely stunning. Totally movie star appeal. Simple pulled back hair. Dream on… And, she just had a baby! #perfection
Dakota Johnson (on a date with mom Melanie Griffith) in a red Saint Laurent gown. So fresh and modern. A simple ponytail and red lip prove that less is more.
Marion Cottiard in Dior Hate Couture. True meaning of a dress being very specific… and she pulled it off! The front is simple and elegant and the back has the extra drop waist twenties detail that could be so hard to pull off. Marion’s modern riff on a twenties hair is superb.
Margot Robbie in black Saint Laurent with chiffon sleeves. Love the modern day Cyd Charisse feel of chiffon. This is something that all of us could pull off. The perfect lob (long bob hairstyle), red lips, and a classy short pendant necklace. Look at the details the next time you get dressed up. #chic
Cate Blanchette… ok, it’s not big, it’s not overdone, it’s not “Oscar,” but it’s perfect. Cate is always a chic favorite. Just look at the simplicity with a hit of a major, but non fussy necklace. I will have what she’s having any day.
Lupita Nyong’o in Calvin Klein Collection. WOW. Her pearl bodice could go so many ways but on Lupita it is perfection. The key to pulling off a dress with this much embellishment is to keep everything else simple an in balance. Lupita is always a style trail blazer and this number did right again,
