Oscar Inspiration

Feb 27, 2012

Happy Monday friends. I’m back after a few days spent in sunny Mexico. I’ll be sharing a little from that trip later this week but wanted to start the week off with a little Oscar recap.

Not gonna lie, I’m a much bigger Golden Globes than Oscars fan (I just love TV – I can’t help it) but the fashion at the Academy Awards is definitely something that can’t be missed. I didn’t catch the show (I was stuck on a plane somewhere between Cancun and Kentucky) but I kept up with the dresses on twitter. I was a little disappointed with the lack of bold colors and really stand out looks but I still think there was a lot of amazing-ness out there.

Here are some of my favorites.

Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli gown & Louis Vuitton jewels

I’m still not sure how I feel about the bow but I absolutely love the color on her. It’s also no surprise that Emma Stone & Kristen Wiig were two of my favorites since I have girl crushes on both of them.

Is there even a question of whether I would have loved this dress. Two words: polka dots.

I know a lot of people loved Jessica Chastain, Viola Davis, Michelle Williams and Gwenyth Paltrow’s looks but they weren’t my favorites (although I did love the green on Viola Davis). For more pictures, head over here.
Sorry for the recap post today. I’ll be back on my game tomorrow.

Until then, who rocked your favorite Oscar dress?
