I can’t deny that today has been spent oogling at Oscar’s style and not doing my dissertation (it’ll get done, don’t worry). Yes, the Oscar’s was a very stylish affair this year, but sometimes the best dresses are kept for when the nominee’s and winners head to the after parties to let their hair down. Champagne and couture are the perfect mix it seems! So here are my favourites from the Vanity Fair party and Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party, they were both very swanky affairs so mega glamour was expected and delivered!
Hilary Swank in Valentino, Lily Collins in Zuhair Murad, Amy Adams in Oscar De La Renta and Jennifer Lawrence in silvery Calvin Klein really hit the spot for me at the annual Vanity Fair Oscar’s party. Although Hilary’s dress reminded me of Sally Field’s Oscar Valentino gown, it still stunned, and she proved that the retro wave was definitely an Academy Award trend this season. Jennifer Lawrence gave it her all last night and this dress took her from princess to sexy seductress. A lot of critics have called Jennifer ‘fat’ (something that really annoys me) and she proved those people wrong by showing off her bangin’ bod. Someone get me to the gym!
Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party
Emma Roberts in Oscar De La Renta and Khloe Kardashian in an unknown designer gave me the chills at Elton’s bash, I do love Heidi Klum’s look but I think it was a bit too much boobage for such a prestigious affair, sorry Heidi! Emmy Rossum looked positively angelic in an ethereal Catherine Deane gown and Chopard halo, while Miley Cyrus continued to show off her bleach blonde crop wearing an Emilio Pucci gown, which perfectly framed her toned back – if you’ve got it flaunt it! Roberts gown was mature enough for a post-Oscars bash but didn’t age her, it was the perfect mix – all she needs is an Oscar to accessorise with. Khloe Kardashian definitely surprised me, while one cannot deny that the Kardashians do have style, they’re not always the best dressed, but I have to say I have fallen in love with KK’s on trend neon yellow gown as it hugged her curves in all the right places and her waved hair made her look scream Old Hollywood Glamour with a modern neon twist.
