and the oscar goes to....

my fam and i watched the academy awards this past sunday, and i really enjoyed them this year!
i thought they were so well done, from the hosts (funny but not too crude or rude), to the amazing set design which felt very 'old hollywood' to me.
being a lover of all things pop culture, one of my favourite things about award shows is the red carpet, and seeing the beautiful dresses, suits, accessories, hairstyles, etc! so, i thought i would show you my top fav red carpet outfits:

loved these pale, and elegant beauties :)

even though i don't really enjoy k.stew as an actress, i thought she chose well with this dark gown.

the oversized beading on carey mulligans dress was so hip, and gorgeous!

the colours of these dresses were stunning, and i loved the boldness of vera farmiga's dress!

i think my absolute favs this year were the patterned dresses that rachel mcadams and maggie gyllenhaal wore. the fabric/prints were quite unique for a glamourous awards show, where most of the time celebs choose solid, or jewel encrusted gowns. i thought the slightly laidback flair of these dresses fit the california awards show well.

and lastly, if i were a man, and attending an awards show, i would want to look like zac efron or tom ford (i loved his faux flower boutonniere!!)...just sayin :)

i don't know about you, but all this glamour makes me want to whip out some nice fabric, my sewing machine and get busy making a red carpet worthy dress!!


  1. That oversized beading was actually a ton of little scissors and stuff. Haha. c:
