2014 Oscars Red Carpet Advanced Fashion: Meryl, June, Bette, Liza, Goldie, Glenn & More

When you’re at the appropriate age to play someone’s mother or someone’s grandmother, in Hollywood you’re entering another stage of your career. Where you’re joining a long list of very talented actresses who stood the test of time and got better at their game.

This is yet another game they’re really good at: fashion! In the wise words of Ari Seth Cohen whose eponymous blog consistently reports on the silver age of fashion, here’s the ‘advance style’ wonderfully represented on the 2014 Oscars Red Carpet:

I’m starting with Meryl not because she’s been nominated 18 times for an Oscar Award, but because she’s my favorite! Her energy, her beauty, her talent and her style has made her a steady reference in my Red Carpet reports throughout the years and events!

2014 Oscars Red Carpet Pregnant Fashion: Kerry, Elsa, Olivia

Three gorgeous ladies who are also heavily pregnant are a true inspiration for so many pregnant women out there who can still look gorgeous no matter how far into their pregnancies they are!

It’s hard to pick a favorite as Kerry Washington’s mauve dress was so different from Olivia Wilde’s black dress and Elsa Pataky’s emerald green lace dress was clearly a showstopper! But I enjoyed seeing them all on the 2014 Oscars Red Carpet, and I truly believe they were pregnant, gorgeous and stylish! (help me decide which pregnant lady was the most fashionable by commenting below!)

Her 2014 Oscars black dress was apparently created for her by Raf Simons, based on designs he sent on the Fall 2014 Haute Couture collection’s runway.

Cate Blanchett Glowing In Armani Prive Dress At The 2014 Oscars

Slowly trying to wake up from the glam and the glitz, it’s time I picked one of my favorite leading ladies to start the 2014 Oscars Red Carpet discussion this year: Cate Blanchett.

As expected, she was wearing Armani Prive with the same grace and elegance she puts into each and every one of her Red Carpet appearances! The flowery details and the sequins on her sheer dress complete the aura of ethereal beauty she’s spreading around her, making yet another headspinning appearance for the 2014 edition of the Academy Awards. Head-to-toes, this is how perfection looks like:
