It’s awards season! I can’t think of anything better to do on a Sunday night than to curl up on the couch with a glass of wine to watch high fashion come down the red carpet.
Fashion trends are always changing but in the last few years there has been a definite bridal-esque presence on the red carpets. It’s easy to look at a couture dress and picture it in white for a bridal gown but lately we’ve seen bridal gowns go the other way, from wedding land to high fashion. At the Golden Globes, Felicity Huffman wore a gorgeous Jenny Packham gown, she may have messed up her lines, but she was stunning in this coral gown. Kate Hudson was a vision in white in her Marchesa gown at the Golden Globes. This one was straight out of the new bridal line. Now that I think about it Kate also wore a daring backless white gown to the SAG Awards, maybe white is the new black?
Speaking of the SAG Awards, the always adorable Drew Barrymore, was bold in her blue Monique Lhuillier gown. I’ve seen this dress a few times, once in Platinum Weddings, but never in blue. Honestly I’ve never been a fan of the second stiff “skirt”. Take it off and that dress would be flawless. I will say Miss Barrymore’s makeup and hair were fabulous! Another straight out of the boutique gown was the Vera Wang that Kyra Sedgwick wore. The dress fit like a glove and the sheer grey sash accentuates her curves. Beautiful.
Can’t wait for the Oscars!
