Oscars 2016

Hello all! What can I say besides work life has been taking over since my last post. I try to keep up with fashion as much little time I have.

So the Oscars has finally arrived and it is time to criticize the fashion. A lot of hit and misses and only a handful that stood out. Here is what I liked for both Men’s and Women’s Fashion.

Last year’s Best Actor Winner, Eddie Redmayne, always looks sharp  when hitting the read carpet. This year he looks fantastic in Alexander McQueen, last years blue tux was great on him. The tux is sharp, cut to fit and proportioned efficiently and the velvet was the trend of the night, Henry Cavill wore a fuller version of this.

Chris Rock was a fantastic host, most may disagree,  he provided the right about of humor and a hint of truth. Chris Rock wore Burberry, and that white coat look flawless on him. I like the all around lapel, which made him look really relaxed and not in restraint like some tux’s make it seem. It was slim cut and he looked great.

Gucci’s new face of Guilty walked down the carpet in a black and red detail tux. Although, I do not get the new Gucci vision, I can honestly say Jared Leto can pull any fashion, trend off. Last years pastel Givenchy was a great hit to the true fashion lovers. Once again Jared surprises us that confidence is key when taking the risk when the whole world is watching, although I would’ve have worn different shoes.

Someone that was seen briefly was American Horror’s alum Finn Whitlock looked sharp in Prada. Finn’s youthfulness was on trend, slim but loose enough and straight cut tux. I really liked this Prada tux. It was very young, hip.

As for the women I liked a few dresses. I was not impressed by them and the one I really liked did not even make it to any Best Dressed list.

Saoirse Ronan has come a long way since her on screen performance in Atonement. I think her performance in Brooklyn was nomination worthy, yet at least it was nominated for Best Film. Saoirse graces the red carpet in a custom Calvin Klien by Francisco Costa. I like the jewel tone color of the dress. The back details gave it that youthful, playful touch yet still elegant with the texture on it. It was nicely proportioned, relaxed and on trend.

To finish off my top 4, the other 4 (in no particular order) were the ones I liked.


Until Next Time!
