The 88th Academy Awards is over and we all know by know it isn't who holds the statue, but who won the Oscars red carpet. As an embellishment designer, you know by now I always choose my favorite red carpet fashion looks by the best use of embroidery.
The two lovely pregnant ladies Emily Blunt and Chrissy Teigen inspired awe and envy in many mothers for their look. Emily Blunt showed off her porcelain English complexion with a pale pink empire gown by Prada. I love the delicate beaded motifs that barely skim her bump. I had a tulle jacket from the 1990's from them that had a similar embellishment. Teigen on the other hand wore a much more dramatic Marchesa gown of deep red floral embroidery that wound its way all over her curves. Hot.
I have to say, Daisy Ridley has the sweetest smile of anyone in Hollywood. Her Chanel Couture dress has the most elegant crystal embroidery, making it the highlight of an otherwise, simple silhouette. Oscar winner Alicia Vikander wore a sunny yellow Louis Vuitton gown that reminded me of an inverted tulip with a simple trailing embroidery pattern. Cate Blanchett is forever stunning on any red carpet with those cheekbones and statuesque build. Her Armani Prive gown had big three-dimensional flowers (another technique I like to design/illustrate with as my sister observed). The blossoms were light and heralded spring while the icy blue still reminded us that we're not out of winter yet.
Now you know mine, who were your favorites from the Oscars red carpet? Who took risks? Who was a miss? Who are the new faces you loved?
