Our Top 12 From the Oscars

The Oscars red carpet is like the grand ball for stars in their designer gowns. Every look that comes down is worthy of a second glance, even from behind! If you expected a sea of all-black outfits, that was not the case, as the Oscars had no #TimesUp dress code.

Instead, celebrities showed up in all colors of the rainbow. However, most stars found other ways to support the #TimesUp movement, either by wearing pins or thanking women in their acceptance speeches. Some even wore orange pins on the red carpet to raise awareness about gun safety in light of the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. There were full ballgown skirts and bright colors, but the ladies of the red carpet dressed to kill, and they slayed. It was one for the books! We wanted to share some of our favorite picks from the Oscars, take a look at these spectacular looks.

Margot Robbie >> In a white Chanel gown with beading at the bodice and delicate draping at the shoulders. Nicole Kidman >> Wearing a cobalt Armani Prive Gown with an oversized bow and mermaid train with a split hem.

Jennifer Lawrence >> Wearing a shimmer bronze Dior Gown. Mary J Blige >> Wearing a white gown with a slightly asymmetrical neckline and and a pearl-beaded corset bodice.

Gal Gadot >> Wearing a glittery black and silver sequin Givenchy Haute Couture Gown. Allison Williams >> In a Nude Armani Prive beaded cap sleeve gown with a full skirt.

Lupita Nyong’o >> Wearing a gold and black Versace chainmail gown. Sandra Bullock >> In a shimmery black and silver Louis Vuitton gown.

Haley Bennett >> Wearing black dress with feather embellishments. Molly Sims >> Wearing a beaded silver Naeem Khan gown with Renee Caovilla heels.

Leslie Bibb >> Wearing a black J Mendel gown, paired with Brian Atwood heels and carrying a Tyler Ellis bag. Zendaya >> Wearing a deep burgundy asymmetrical -sleeved Giambattista Valli Couture gown, with Brian Atwood sandals.

These are just a few of our fan favorites! What were your favorite looks on the Red Carpet this year? We would love to hear in the comments below!

The Number One Stylist in Hollywood

We’ve been longtime fans of Karla Welch’s personal style and work. She’s one half of bi-coastal star styling team (and fellow Canadians) Kemal & Karla, dressing names like Michelle Williams, Lily Collins, Zooey Deschanel, Hailee Steinfeld, and Olivia Wilde.

For every amazing celebrity red carpet moment, there’s a genius stylist working diligently behind the scenes. Each year, The Hollywood Reporter recognizes their accomplishments with its “Most Powerful Stylists in Hollywood” roundup, and the 2017 list is full of especially talented pros.

This year, one stellar stylist managed to stand out among the rest and nab the top spot: Karla Welch, who dresses Ruth Negga, Sarah Paulson, Karlie Kloss, Michelle Monaghan, Busy Phillips, and others. So why does she wield so much power in the industry right now? The Hollywood Reporter explained: “A year ago, the world had never heard of Ruth Negga, but between her subtle turn in Loving, for which she was Oscar-nominated, and her exquisitely standout red-carpet presence, courtesy of Welch, the actress is now a fashion force. That’s the power of a No. 1 stylist.” Who could possibly argue with that?

We wanted to share some of the best red carpet moments that Welch’s styled this past year.

Ruth Negga, Oscars 2017 (Valentino gown, Irene Neuwirth for Gemfields headpiece, earrings, and ring) & Golden Globes 2017 (Louis Vuitton dress, Fred Leighton cuff designed with Gemfields Mozambican rubies)

 

Sarah Paulson, Golden Globes 2017 (Marc Jacobs gold lace-embellished long-sleeve open-back gown with rolling waves of sparkling gold and silver sequins) & Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2017 (Ronald van der Kemp S/S 17 dress)

Michelle Monaghan, Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2017 (Brandon Maxwell dress) & Sundance Film Festival 2017 (Louis Vuitton top, pants, and boots)

Let us know what you think about Karla Welch and her dream true stellar style.

The Oscar’s After-Party Attire

We have been so busy! So many beautiful moments being captured lately from all spectrum’s of the universe. From the political moments of women that are beginning to take flight all over the United States, to Gigi and Bella Hadid’s up and coming photography professional, to Paris Fashion Week! We have been gathering some seriously great information for our Find Fashion Fans. Today, we wanted to start with the Oscar’s since we didn’t get to comment on our favorite after-party attire from the night.

The Oscar’s, a night of the stars who gathered at the 89th annual Academy Awards to celebrate the best in film. But when it comes time to go home with the gold, Hollywood heads to the biggest after-parties of the year. While the Oscars sees some of the most gorgeous gowns on the red carpet, the after-parties host a lineup of more playful looks—especially the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where some of our favorite leading ladies stepped out in remarkable styles.

Diane Kruger wore a metallic Alexandre Vaulthier mini dress with a daring wrap construction. Rooney Mara was radiant in an airy ruffled and pleated chiffon number in a romantic blush tone that was none other than H&M. Emily Ratajkowski’s feather train stunned. Wearing everything from trumpet silhouettes to ball gowns, every actress below who walked the party’s green-and-white carpet was a head-turner. We obviously had to share these astonishing looks from our favorite’s in film!
