I love watching the fashion at the Oscars because everyone is so elegant and glamorous. Everyone is wearing beautifully constructed formal wear and it’s just a lovely, polished evening. That being said, I had no stand out favorites. I am just really happy that all of the ladies looked really pretty on their special night. There were plenty of beautiful black and neutral gowns – always a safe way to go. You can also never go wrong with some bling and there was plenty of that on the red carpet. Also, the trend of bright colors that I believe has been started by the amazing Lupita Nyongo’o was evident and everyone who wore color wore it well. Even the men on the red carpet played with color and didn’t just stick to the traditional black. There was Dallas Buyers’ Club starts and winners Matthew McConaughey (alright, alright, alright!) and Jared Leto rocking the white dinner jackets; Michael Strahan looked great in a merlot colored tuxedo; and there was also some navy blue hued suits – way to think outside of the box, fellas!

So! What does a girl wear when she’s being admitted into an insane asylum? Dsquared2 of course! That is, if she wants to be the hottest chick in the psych ward, apparently! The collection was shown with a “Girl, Interrupted” theme complete with immaculately dressed attendants to make sure the mad mavens behaved even though a few patients did go off of the deep end – they “escaped” by walking off of the runway. The line was mostly 60’s chic, with uber short skirts; delightfully luxurious textiles; and that funky Dsquared2 style that I have come to adore. The pieces were fun, girly, and edgy all at once. The show can be seen on the Dsquared2 website and the photos can be seen on style.com.
Gucci went retro with a cool, 60’s vibe and I loved it – and not just because I had an almost religious experience at the Gucci Museum in Florence just a few weeks ago! I like the very simple looks and the breezy, cool, pastel color palette that was used to ease us into the fall season. That is just probably just what we will need after all of the polar vortex business this year - we are going to want summer to last as long as possible! See the full collection at style.com.

I have had a hard time finding things to rave about on last week’s London runways. The British; although I adore their accents - have always stricken me as odd in just about every other way. I guess this also holds true for the British fashion scene for me! There were a few collections I checked out and below, a summary of my favorites.
Temperley London showed a couple of cute maxi dresses that I liked, because I'll always be a sucker for a maxi dress!
I was excited about Topshop because I really like the things I’ve seen since they started selling pieces in Nordstrom in the states so I looked through their collection about three times. They seemed to be aiming for “effortlessly chic” this is what I kind of liked…
So! Yep! That’s all I’ve got! Better luck in September, London!
