The fashion successes in the Oscars redcarpet were plentiful (thank goodness!). Here are our six “Glamourtunists of the Night,” beginning with Lupita Nyong’o, David Oyelowo, and Felicity Jones.
Lupita Nyong’o is officially the overall ruler of the red carpet. She NEVER gets it wrong. Never! I know this may bring up some curse where she may be doomed for every red carpet forever now, but she has given us enough to love forever in my book. This custom gown, embroidered with 6,000 pearls, was made by Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein. It was the dress of the night and eclipses even the fabulous powder blue Prada she wore last year, which was memorable in its own right. David Oyelowo wore a wine colored custom tux by Dolce and Gabbana. This was by far one of the best looks of the night worn by a male or female, and one of the best I’ve ever seen worn by a male on the red carpet in my decades of watching the #Oscars. And finally, Felicity Jones stunned the world in this fabulous Alexander McQueen gown by Sarah Burton. The color appears silver but photographed various colors on the red carpet and all looked beautiful. The bodice is so intricately placed and ornate. It was a wow moment for sure.
Our final trio of “Glamourtunists of the Night” are Eddie Redmayne, Emma Stone, and Faith Hill. Eddie Redmayne chose a wonderful color that made what could have been another dull #tuxedo a great look. Plus he is super handsome. Emma Stone wowed in a divine chartreuse Elie Saab. It perfectly matched her hair. And Faith Hill looked so sexy and #fashion forward in a fierce J Mendel gown and new haircut. My fave detail was the string of diamonds that followed the plunging neckline on the gown.
