The Oscars is the biggest fashion festival! The world watches in awe and adoration as the glamorous divas waltz their way onto the red carpet. While you may have already seen the best dressed list of Oscar 2016, in this post I will share six style lessons that Academy Awards 2016 had to offer. I feel the Oscars set the tone for glamming up and so, a few style picks from the gorgeous ladies surely help. Keep scrolling.
1. White looks pristine and classy
This is a style lesson championed by Lady Gaga this time. White maybe understated, but never undermine the power of white in a sea of bling, bright and bold hues! You can never look OTT in a pure white ensemble. Oscar awards just proved, when in doubt wear white!
2. Big V-neckline
The humble V-neck had a kick start to the style season, it is THE cut to flaunt. If deep V neckline sounds a bit bold, opt for lesser depth. You don’t have to reveal your cleavage also. In fact, score brownie points by putting a polo neck underneath it. Simple?
3. Long sleeves, anyone?
Long sleeves on gowns are the ultimate in chic, as demonstrated by Charlotte Rampling who stunned in a long sleeved dress by Giorgio Armani Privé haute couture. On a night when the carpet buzzed with sleeveless and strapless designs, the conservative long sleeves showed that you don’t need to show off skin to be a fashionista.
4. Midnight blue can become the new black
Just look at the deep ocean blue of Naomi Watts’ embellished Armani gown and the lapis lazuli of Brie Larson’s Gucci dress – the colors look so striking and elegant. In fact, though black can never get boring, you can easily add this color for a dazzling makeover.
5. Icy pastels can work wonders
It’s always a welcome change to see colors other than silver and black (they are done to death!). With Cate Blanchett and Alicia Vikander in pale blue Armani and lemon custom-made Louis Vuitton respectively, icy pastels made a huge comeback. And what timing! You would surely want to prep up your wardrobe before summers attack.
6. Minimalism works best
Have you noticed something? Every celeb seems to accessorize down their outfits. So mostly a pair of diamond studs, a statement clutch, danglers or a bracelet – these glam ladies are ready to rule the red carpet by being aesthetically clutter free.
