And the Oscar goes to…So many attendees ! I was intrigued by the fashion that was all over the red carpet at the 81st annual Academy Awards. This is one of the most prestigious events for actors, actresses, directors, etc. to be nominated, present, or even attend! Hey I wouldn’t mind going. In any event, this also happens to be one of the most important occasions to celebrate the art of the fashion. Name dropping of designers have become HUGE over the years. As a matter of fact, designers and celebrities signed contracts so that celebrities could push the brand name and image unto the public and the merchandising market. For example, Chanel and Nicole Kidman had an agreement that Nicole would be wearing Chanel clothing and accessories to where the press was present. In turn, she would earn commission from the profits Chanel would gain from their sales. Therefore, I wonder which celebrities were also helping out their designer friends. Beyonce, debuted her dress from her personal collection “House of Dereon.” Her clothing line has recently launched a new line of dresses. Although, I do not know how much this display helped her, because her unique dress, was not a winner on this red carpet…sorry B. However, many were winners, especially those who radiated with a splash of color. Natalie Portman’s petite frame became bigger than life when she showed off her fucsia colored Rodrate designed strapless dress. It was a breath of fresh springy air. Alicia Keys, also glowed in a purple number. Teen sensation, Miley Cyrus on the other hand, looked like a 6 tiered cream cake in her Zuhair Murad gown. I think it had potential, but the execution…well failed, to say the least. A lot of ballgowns and “poofy” dresses made their way to the red carpet, i.e Sarah Jessica Parker in her prom inspired belted ballgown. She truly looked stunning. Penelope Cruz, as well. Dressed in an off white colored wedding dress. I am kidding, it just looks like one. But VERY pretty for a very good night for the winner of the best supporting actress in “ Vikki Cristina Barcelona.” You go girl. Speaking of winners…Kate Winslet look stunning, stunning, stunning. She wore a steel grey dress by Atelier Yves Saint Laurent by Stefano Pilati. It was asymmetrical and definitely made some heads turn on the red carpet. She never falls short of perfection when it comes to the red carpet. So overall, I think this event was filled with a lot of true beauties that decorated the night in the best way possible.
