2015 OSCARS RED CARPET: From Wow To Weird To Worst

Ok, I’m sad to say this year’s Oscars experience was underwhelming for me. My sweet hubby accidentally scheduled his return flight right smack in the middle of the red carpet coverage (I forgave him) then I at too much Thai food and feel asleep in a food coma right after the amazing opening act. Wow- Neal Patrick Harris nailed it! I woke up at the ending credits. Ugh! We do not have a DVR because we just don’t watch enough regular TV. I’m rethinking that one.

I did catch enough of the red carpet to assess it and give you my verdict for best & weirdest dressed.

I love the shades of Valentine colors from blush to pretty pink to vibrant red. Rosamund Pike killed it in Givenchy and totally redeemed herself after the Golden Globes fiasco. She’s my top choice of the night!

Felicity Jones in Alexander McQueen has been growing on me! The color & bodice is so beautiful and unique. Perhaps a different shape on the bottom would have been more flattering on her. Whatcha think?

Here’s my choices for weird to worst…

Was this her sister’s home ec sewing project? First time on the carpet.. poor thing.

Note to self.. remove the gloves after dishwashing and hitting the red carpet. Yes, it’s true Gaga fashion- but come on!

I get it.. she’s trying to make a statement with the red belt, but I just don’t like it. Period. Nicole is usually in the top 3 best dressed, but this is a miss. Poor choice of clutch, too!

I’m on the fence with this one! Chrissy Teigen is a stunning supermodel, but honey, choose to highlight ONE asset at a time. The top is too low and the slit is too high. This would have been so much more glamourous with more modesty and a lighter lip.

I would love to hear your 2- cents!

I can’t believe red carpet season is over.

Overall the glitz & glamour was a success!

RED CARPET RECAP: Lots of Hits & A Big Miss, Keira

The glam squads are probably all recovering from their hairspray hangovers this morning after the 1st award show of the season, the 72nd Annual Golden Globes. Being an on camera artist as well as a fashionista, I love every single aspect of award season. Actors, directors and screenwriters are celebrated for their achievements all while sporting the latest trends by the best designers, stylists and hair & makeup artists. Last night did not disappoint! It was a night filled with magic, inspiration (and some tears), glamour and love…thanks to the Clooney’s.

As always, there were tons of red carpet hits and a few misses to make it fun.

Here are my favorites:

There were many fabulous trends from bright colors to winter whites to ethereal ball gowns to metallic and super sexy cut outs. I’m all about sparkle right now so my overall fave trend was the metallic looks above. Especially Julianne Moore’s dress with the feather mermaid bottom. So gorg! But, of course, it’s Givenchy Haute Couture!

Another look I’m obsessed with this winter is head-to-toe white. Giuliana Rancic was stunning in this white Jad Ghandour dress and matching coat. The hosts do the hard work on the red carpet and are usually outshined by the celebs, but Giuliana looked so stunning and is one of the hardest working women in Hollywood. She deserves the shout out!

I love to see women dress for their body and highlight their assets and camouflage any problems areas. Not that these women have any problems, but the ruching, cut out detail, silhouette at the bottom and neckline all work together to cinch the waist, add height and broaden the shoulders. Perfection!

J-Lo is known for plunging necklines, high slit on the leg and flawless smokey eyes. She brought it full force last night and her glam squad killed it! The beaded cape dress by Zuhair Murad had a unique art deco vibe. Totally the stand out -for me- of the night! Even her nails were amazing.

The most aspirational women of the night were Helen Mirren and Jane Fonda. I love that we are given this type of motivation at the beginning of the year! Helen turns 70 this year and Jane is 77…yes, I said 77. At almost 80, it is apparent that her working out for over 50 decades has paid off. They put the youngen’s to shame! Just sayin’.

There were a few misses last night, but the biggest disappointment of the night was Keira Knightly in Chanel. The expectant mama could have chosen something so glam and stylish to show off her bump! Keira, fire your stylist asap, sista! I love butterflies, but the purse matching the print just takes this to another level of horrible. It really looks like someone’s first attempt at sewing in Home Ec using their mom’s old drapes and grandma’s table cloth. Seriously!

I’m thrilled to wrap up my recap with one of the best statements and moments of the evening. The handsome Mr. Clooney, recipient of this year’s Cecil B. DeMille award, gave an eloquent, funny and heartfelt acceptance speech with a special shout out to his lovely bride, Amal. They were one of the most anticipated to arrive on the red carpet last night. There are mixed reviews on her white gloves, but I loved them! While most people thought he was going to let her outshine him- being her first red carpet appearance- it was nice to see her in a classic black dress arm-in-arm with her husband united as one. It made a big statement to see them both in black & white when most women would have worn a bold color for their 1st red carpet as Mrs. Clooney. Class act.

WHAT ARE YOUR RED CARPET PICKS?

Get out there and strut it this week, sista.

The world is YOUR red carpet.

Love, Tiff
