Favorites from the Oscars 2020

All three of my favorite gowns from the Academy Awards tonight had metallic embellishments in common, though they each look like they were designed in a different era. Brie Larson in Celine, Natalie Portman in Dior, and Scarlett Johansson in Oscar de la Renta were each elegant in an unexpected and dazzling way.

I also appreciated the thought that went into Portman’s cape, which was subtly embroidered with the names of notable female directors who weren’t nominated this year.

As far as I’m concerned, Rachel Bilson (center) knocked it out of the park with her Brock Collection dress tonight. No one else came close to being as chic and fashion-forward. Plus, it was such a smart, seasoned move to pair her medieval-inspired gown with easy-going, edgy hair. I bow down.

Zoe Kravitz (left) in polka-dotted Saint Laurent and Zoey Deutch (right) in marigold Fendi were the only two other red-carpet dresses that took my breath away.

Time to take a break from home-reno posts to bring you a special message from the Golden Globe Awards’ fashion panel of one.

I noted thirteen extraordinary looks on the red carpet tonight. I narrowed them down to my top three: Danai Gurira, Sofia Carson, and Allison Janney.

Golden Globe Awards 2019 Fashion: Danai Gurira, Sofia Carson, Allison Janney

Danai Gurira. This Rodarte dress really needs to be seen from multiple angles to be appreciated fully. The shoulder bow was a sculpture in itself, and the fiery, red-on-orange, flocked pattern was mesmerizing in all the right ways. She finished it off with simple jewelry, and, smartly, a hair accessory on the opposite side as the shoulder bow.

Sofia Carson. Her Giambattista Valli dress was a little odd but so good. It seems like Carson knows how to push fashion far enough to be edgy but hold back enough to be palatable. This was absolutely my favorite look of the night, from top to bottom. She’s a match for some of my favorite style stars, like Emma Stone and Zendaya, who have red carpet fashion down to a science.

Allison Janney. This woman. I tell ya. Fifty-nine years old and just gets it. She is flawless every time. Her style is impeccable and so well-cultivated. Should I go on? I’ll conclude by pointing out that Christian Siriano designed a fantastic gown, one that is feminine, elegant, and yet, delightful. The necklace by David Webb took it up another notch, also.

What to Wear to the Movies, Circa 2008

Man, I miss Polyvore. Creating sets was fun, but it’s the loss of their product search-engine that devastates me. It was unmatched, and online shopping hasn’t been the same since.

This was the first set I ever created on Polyvore. I think it was supposed to be an outfit I’d wear to the movies. It was probably 2008.

Fashion from this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards was very exciting. My top three were easy styles—all long and draping, feminine and simple. Coincidentally, all three women also wore their hair down with a deep side-part, though that didn’t influence my choices.

Reese Witherspoon in Zac Posen, Brie Larson in Gucci (my favorite look), and Mandy Moore in Ralph Lauren. You killed it, ladies.

I Want Johanna Ortiz Resort 2018

I am a huge fan of Colombian designer, Johanna Ortiz. Her entire Resort 2018 line had romance, movement, and quintessential Latin flair. This particular look got me right in the gut. Though I could do without the boudoir shoes…

Resort 2018 Fashion Trend: Plaid Pantsuits

Hooray, oversized fashion is cool again. I love contrasting proportions, and a baggy blazer with a fitted pant is one of my favorite silhouettes. Most of mainstream America doesn’t get this look… but Isabel Marant, Monse, and Fendi… I get you.

I especially get you in dad plaid.

Has Mandy Moore always been this much of a fashion plate? Somehow I never noticed until now.
