The red carpet for the 2015 Academy Awards AKA the Oscars did not disappoint.  Let me go on record as saying that I am not one of those people that lives for a fashion moment that comes as a result of a fashion troll.  I look to the red carpet for high glamour, pretty things, and sexy men.  Me likes a man in well tailored suit. With that being said here are some of my favorites.

These three were reaping for the Versace gang and looked damn good while doing so.  If you don’t know by now, I love blush and nude colors.

Zoe Saldana looks great with her post baby weight.  Scarlett Johansson’s slicked back hair paired with this stunning necklace in emerald green were a major win.  I will always be here for Jennifer Aniston.  The years have been very kind to her, and I will secretly always feel a way towards Brad Pitt for her idc idc idc.

Auntie Oprah showed out for the curvy girls.  The ruching and draping of this silk tulle gown paired with a cinched waist was a winning combination.

Red was definitely having a moment.  Solange can literally wear any color and look amazing in it.  My makeup artist/hairstylist cousin informed me that the key to pulling this off is dark hair and neutral makeup.  While this is a tad casual for the event, the fabric makes it more formal.  Rosamund Pike is serving in this red on red on red in Givenchy.  I live for slicked back hair, and hers really allowed the dress to shine.  David Oyelowo’s waistcoat was up for debate on my Instagram, but I think he looks dapper in this Dolce and Gabbana tux.


I could not wait to see these Zuhair Murad gowns on the red carpet.  They all did them justice.


Elie Saab just gets it.  Emma Stone and J. Lo AKA SlayLo are red carpet favorites and you can see why.

The less is more gang featuring Reese Witherspoon and Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford and Ralph & Russo respectively.  I for sure thought Reese was wearing white, but that is actually ice blue.  Loved both of these looks.

Lupita Nyongo was a vision in this pearl gown by Calvin Klein collection.  While her gowns are never overtly sexy, the confidence with which she wears them makes her so alluring.  She has this whole I know I’m the whiz but I’m also very approachable thing going.

So, a few things about Rita Ora.  I genuinely don’t know any of her music, and she is so hit or miss with me with her fashion choices, but she has been bringing it lately.  I am simply obsessed with her hair and this Marchesa gown is such a work of art.

I know that everyone is into the “Lob” but I could have gone with another hairstyle on Renee Russo.  The waves are competing with the ruffles and the accessories are a bit harsh for the occasion. However, I cannot go without acknowledging this beautiful J.Mendel gown.
