2011 Oscar Fashion

The 83rd Academy Awards was held on February 28 2011. Read on to find out my take on 2011 Oscar Fashion and my favourite dresses!

Lady in Red

Walking the red carpet deserves a kick-ass dress and the colour red is a sure-fire way to ensure all eyes are looking at you. Red seems to be the favourite shade for several ladies attending the Oscars this year. Check out my favourite red dresses…

Selena Gomez in a soft floaty v-necked Dolce & Gabbana dress accessorised with a little Judith Leiber clutch, gold Lorraine Schwatz jewellery.
Anne Hathaway in vintage Valentino Haute Couture scarlet gown, accessorised with a $10 million Tiffany Lucida Star 94-carat diamond necklace, 10-carat diamond earrings and a 5-carat diamond ring.

Embellishment

It’s the Oscars…one simply cannot go wrong with sequinned embellishments! Check out some of my favourite embellished dresses with sequins that ranged from a light sprinkling to create a design to full on head to toe sequins covering the dress…

Thoughts: I love red but my favourite dresses for Oscar 2011 are Michele Williams’s  Chanel dress with its glitering silver sequins that empahsize the dress’s simple lines  and Mandy More’s Monique Lhuillier lovely dreamy dress.

      To look that good…i wouldn’t care too much about the weight…besides…the limousine drives you straight to the venue, just walk that path and you are sitting down again!

      The only worry is whether the dress comes in a size bigger than size 0… 😛

      cheers!
