For every phenomenon in the world, there is a mass opinion.
Then, there is your own personal opinion.
Sometimes, you seem to be in sync with the mass opinion, sometimes not.
I say, stick to your own flavour.
Unlike 2015 when stylists experimented with colours for the Red Carpet, Oscars 2016 witnessed a rather conservative approach when it came to selection of colours of the Red Carpet gowns.
Black, White, Ivory, Gold, Red, Blue and Green ruled the Red Carpet followed by few looks in blush pink, tangerine orange, marsala, champagne, yellow and Oriental floral embroidery.
It would be safe to say stylists played safe in colours but ventured in silhouettes and fabric textures : Deep necklines grazing till navel, cut out neck lines, sheer fabrics, textured fabrics with 3D embroidery and knife pleats.
So here is my list of the ‘Best Dressed List for Oscars 2016’.
1. Cate Blanchett wearing an Armani Privé dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and a Roger Vivier clutch.
Cate Blanchett looked as elegant as her character Carol. Stunning floral feathers and crystals adorned this dainty Limpet Shell blue shaded( One of the two Pantone Shades of 2016) floor length Armani Prive dress.
Elegance personified, indeed.
2. Jennifer Lawrence wearing a Dior Haute Couture dress and Chopard jewels.
She is a perfect combination of vulnerability coupled with sultriness. Jennifer Lawrence scored the Sultriest Red Carpet look at the Oscars 2016 with her lingerie-inspired Fashion trend look by Dior. Her ‘Joy’ knew no bounds with Chopard jewels.
Sexy, isn’t she?
3. Priyanka Chopra wearing a Zuhair Murad dress and $3.2 million worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
By now if you are fashion savvy, you would have figured the floral textured fabrics ruling the Red carpets this season. Another example was our very own Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra who has been grabbing eye balls with her role in Quantico. Dressed in the structured cage bustier mermaid dress in white silk tulle, she looked ravishing. Her attire was also adorned with 3D shimmering climbing flowers.
Hello Hollywood, says the singer-actor from Bollywood.
4. Margot Robbie wearing a Tom Ford dress and The Row purse with Forevermark jewelry.
Resplendent in the gold shimmer tailored to perfection by Tom Ford, Margot Robbie looked every bit of the 70’s Diva. Her blonder hair was matched to perfection with the golds of her dress.
5. Rooney Mara wearing a Givenchy dress, Stuart Weitzman heels and Fred Leighton jewels.
If the Red Carpet witnessed its moment of creative cuts, it had to be this. Givenchy’s ivory Haute Couture gown was every bit experimental in its texture and above the navel rhomboid cut would go on to become iconic. Rooney Mara looked flawless in her chic hair do and dark lips.
6. Charlize Theron wearing a Dior Haute Couture dress and $3.7 million worth of Harry Winston diamonds.
The ‘Mad Max’ star Charlize Theron looked stunning in the daringly plunging Red Dior Haute Couture dress. Her neat blonde hair do and the diamond pendant finished her impressive Red Carpet appearance for the Oscars 2016.
7. Julianne Moore wearing a custom Chanel Haute Couture gown and Chopard jewels.
If classic was the question, Julianne Moore would be the answer. Looking every bit charming in her Chanel Haute Couture gown, Julianne cut a striking image at the Red Carpet Oscar 2016. Simple mid hair parting and classic Chopard jewels finished her look.
In my opinion, these seven women and their Stylists did the perfect mash-up of current Fashion trends with the classic Red Carpet colours.
