Red Carpet worth more than meets the eye

Glits and Glam!

Glits and Glam!

Glitz and Glam! Two words describing this year’s 88th Annual Academy Awards. Held at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California the women of the entertainment world stunned in their ensembles. Charlize Theron walked the red carpet in a red fitting low cut Dior Haute Couture dress and Harry Winston accessories worth 3.7 million dollars. I loved the chic look she gave it was perfect for her figure. In trendy terms, Charlize Theron “slayed”. 

 “Goo goo for Gaga,” I was absolutely amazed by Lady Gaga who wowed the world in wearing a custom Brandon Maxwell dress, with Brian Atwood heels and 8 million dollars’ worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewels. She definitely has a unique choice to what she wears to red carpet events but, this one was much more of a success than her recent decisions. The music icon also gave a phenomenal performance targeted to woman of sexual abuse and her path to recovery from it.

 Would you ever wear leather on the red carpet? Actress Kerry Washington had fashion critics talking all around town about her leather Atelier Versace Dress. Accessorized with vintage Harry Winston diamonds. The dress in itself is one you either hate or love. For me, the look worked because of the slimming fit design it had. 

My personal favorite of the evening had to be Rachel McAdams. McAdams was absolutely glowing in an Everest green dress. Wearing an August Getty Atelier with a low cut back with train and Stuart Weitz heels this “Mean Girls” star had everyone wanting to be like “Regina George”. The cut in the back was the perfect icing of the cake for me. The color complemented her skin tone very well and the train was beautiful. 

After an evening of many different styles and custom dresses, fashion police were in full effect the next morning. Many critics gossiped about the most liked and most hated of the evening. In my opinion, the Oscars gives woman the opportunity to showcase their creative minds into an evening gown for the perfect night. The thought process, and attention to detail that goes into every gown is absolutely profound. Next year’s Oscars will surely be one the world shouldn’t miss.
