Red Carpet Favorites: Academy Awards 2016

With the 2016 Academy Awards in the books, let’s cut to the chase and talk red carpet looks. Boy oh boy did Gaga, Rachel and Alicia wear their dresses well.


Three words: gaga for Gaga. This lady in white STUNNED in a Brandon Maxwell jumpsuit…but the word “jumpsuit” does not do it justice. This beautiful flowing ensemble featured a strapless sweetheart neckline tapering into palazzoo legs. The draping details on the bodice added just enough dimension while the sweeping train created drama. If there was one item I could afford to splurge on, it would be this.

Rachel McAdams was regal in emerald. Simply put, this August Getty Atelier gown is my kind of dress! When you are working with a solid color, the fine details become more important than ever. The dainty halter neck, princess seams, and thigh high slit were the perfect finishing touches. Although I would have chosen gold, the long delicate earrings and matching strappy sandals were spot on.

Alicia Vikander rocked the red carpet in a yellow Louis Vuitton gown, fit for royalty. The princess silhouette is the most forgiving on a small frame and that is just what she has got! The fitted bodice accented her slim waitlist, while the rest flared out into an asymmetrical full skirt. The silver beading created just enough pop and the coordinating silver shoes tied together the entire look.
