So: we’ve seen pretty much every major dress moment from the 2012 Oscars Red Carpet. What main trend did we notice when we drew the fashion line and made the style count? Precious! Precious dresses reigned supreme on the Oscars Red Carpet this year! Having doubts? Stay with me, I’ll take you trough a very precious journey, then!
Sequins and beads, precious embroidery and metallic dresses, it was all meant to steal the eye and charm the glam fashion hearts of whoever watched the event this year. We talked about Meryl Streep’s dress, Stacy Keibler’s tin foil gown, white sequined Elie Saab worn by Milla Jovovich; we even mentioned the power pale couple: Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz and we were amazed by Jessica Chastain’s McQueen dress or Octavia Spencer’s lucky charm designer, Tadashi Shoji. Let’s take it further, after the jump! (or jump to see the gallery here)
One of my favorite dresses tonight was, undoubtedly, Sandra Bullock’s Marchesa. Black and white with precious embroidery, it was the very sum of all 2012 Oscars dresses trends: black, white, sequins, embroidery and waist – showing! Truly a show stopper, that one!
Next was Ellie Kemper’s copper sequined Armani Prive dress. Matching your dress and your hair color is not only charming and truly courageous, but also a hit this time! (don’t try it at home, though!) All – sequins dresses were also seen on: Anna Faris (Diane von Furstenberg black sequined dress), Rose Byrne (Vivienne Westwood black sequined dress), Melissa Leo (black and gold Reem Acra dress).
Sequins and beads precious embroideries were seen on dresses worn by Kate Mara (Jack Guisso soft beige dress), Berenice Bejo (soft mint Elie Saab dress), Wendi McLendon – Covey (soft peach dress).
Judy Greer’s Monique Lhuillier beaded dress was a mix of precious and metallic, in an trompe l’oeuil effect, tres a la mode (oh lala! Wink). Have you seen Viola Davis’ precious cleavage? Her emerald green Vera Wang’s gown was all kinds of breathtaking! And Lara Spencer’s soft gray metallic dress? Pretty strange, huh? (but trend effective nonetheless)
Now let’s talk about the sequined details: Jane Seymour (she was amazing in a red showstopper dress), Leslie Mann’s statuesque deep blue Roberto Cavalli dress was really beautiful. Sequins also decorated Melanie Griffith’s black dress.
Further preciousness on: Penelope Ann Miller’s soft beige sequined Badgley Mischka dress, Nancy O’Dell’s bright yellow dress with embroidered bodice, Maya Rudolph Johanna Johanson’s purple dress, Melissa McCarthy’ soft peachy dress and Kelly Osbourne’s black dress.
Any precious doubts? (oh, and if lace counts as precious, then can we enter Rooney Mara’s white Givenchy dress here?)
