The red carpet is the runway of Hollywood. It’s the time for stars to celebrate their work and the work of their piers while looking as fabulous as possible. The trends on Oscar night set the stage for fashion for the rest of year and last Sunday's 82nd Academy Awards were no exception.
Here is my take on the best looks of the night from Carey Mulligan's pixie cut to Tom Ford's bow tie.
Vera Farmiga in Marchesa
This was my favorite look of the night. The volume of this fuchsia Marchesa dress looked flawless on Vera and seemed very current. We will be seeing more jewel tones on the runways this year which look particularly amazing on pale skin.
Diane Kruger in Chanel
I love the neckline of this black and cream Chanel. It's a timeless look that feels very fresh on Diane. The rosette details on the dress will also be huge trend for spring.
Maggie Gyllenhaal in Dries Van Noten
Leave it to Maggie to make a simple strapless dress look like a serious fashion statement. I love navy watercolor detail on this Dries Van Noten dress. Navy was a huge trend at the Oscar's this year and is the perfect alternative for black.
Carey Mulligan in Prada
The talented and charming newcomer has been the talk of both movie and fashion critics since her premiere in the film, An Education. Amongst the sea of hair extensions and cleavage baring dresses, Mulligan's pixie cut and choice to wear a classic black Prada was refreshingly chic.
Tom Ford in Tom Ford
Leave it to Tom Ford to make even a black bow tie look sexy.
