The Academy Awards : A Formal Affair.

Posted in Uncategorized by modman on March 6, 2010

I dont like that evening gowns and dresses are automatically labeled as “red carpet looks”, even if they will be worn on the red carpet. Some designers base their collections largely on eveningwear and they are known to some as Hollywood sellouts. That perception is completely uncalled for. Who doesnt love to see beautiful art from the runway on real women with amazing talent? Thats exactly what The Academy Awards is all about, recognizing actors and actresses with a special gift of bringing a script to life.

Here are some amazing pieces that I spotted during New York Fashion Week last month. It used to be rare that actresses were able to get their hands on evening gowns straight off the runway but the industry has picked up the pace to meet the demand, especially if it means that the gown will hit the Oscar red carpet. Stylists like Rachel Zoe were probably at New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks to do just that, pick out Oscar-worthy dresses.

Carlos Miele, Halston and Monique Lhuillier give shots of color into their collections. Carolina Herrera designed a gorgeous batch of gowns that have the signature classic Herrera look.

Reem Acra, Monique Lhuillier, Lela Rose and Victoria Beckham have designed off-the-shoulder looks that create lovely silhouettes. I cant wait to see what Victoria Beckham wears.
