The Academy Awards are over and I’m still giddy from how great everyone looked on the Red Carpet. While it’s frigid here on the East Coast, the abundance of blush and pastels on the red carpet reminded me the spring and lighter clothes are around the corner.
Blush and nude shades had a huge presence last night.
Zoe Saldana was oh so pretty in a blush Versace dress. This was the first time Saldana really worked the red carpet since having twins and those kids have definitely done her body good. The star filled out the dress as a woman over 16 should and it was refreshing to see her looking so happy and healthy. I loved everything about her look – the hair, makeup and hair. It was all so elegant.
Another lady who graced the red carpet wearing a great ball gown was Viola Davis. This woman’s makeup, hair, and accessories were perfection last night. Zac Posen is one of my favorite designers and the dress Davis wore was amazing and true to his elegant lines and designs.
The queen of all dresses and the blush trend though was Jennifer Lopez. She brought it in a beaded ball gown and rightfully so. With her signature high pony tail and always perfect makeup, she is definitely on my best dressed list for the night.
Another lesser trend last night was yellow! I love yellow dresses and in the real world they are hard to find. Jennifer Hudson and Emma Stone wore the trend very differently but both ladies looked great.
While some will knock Hudson’s dress for being boring, I liked it and feel that the Romona Keveza dress was very flattering on her lean frame.
