Whether it was LaLa Land, or Moonlight in the final analysis, this was by far one of the best Academy Awards Shows we’ve seen in a long time. The wealth was definitely spread out, although we didn’t think that LION got enough shine, and there were many winners for the evening. The pregame to the Oscars 2017 wasn’t bad either. The red carpet was overwhelmingly pleasing to the eyes, with only a few missteps and blunders; the starlets and studs were delivering captivating performances with their Sunday best.
All the sizzle and trends from the Oscars 2017 red carpet
SHINE ON – OCARS 2017 Trends
The Hollywood Red Carpet got an extra special glow last night. No, it wasn’t from the freshly whitened teeth of Hollywood’s leading men and women, but rather from the glimmering and gleaming flashes of metallics that adorned the crimson road. Perhaps it was a subliminal attempt to channel a little gold statue…. whatever it was all glamour to us!
Emma Stone in Givenchy Haute Couture was the belle of the ball in her flapper-inspired glam gown. She is the first winning actress to wear Givenchy since Audrey Hepburn.
Olivia Culpo also did a flapper inspired style in her Marchesa gown and she took our breath away.
Charlize Theron was built to be on a pedestal especially in this Dior Couture burnished gold gown…and those earrings!!!!
Jessica Biel in Kaufmanfranco gave us Golden Eye envy…. Is this what having a baby does to your body? We didn’t get that memo!
Liberty Ross arriving at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Beverly Hills, made a smart and polished statement in a glittery silver tux jacket
VIBRANT VIXENS – OCARS 2017 Trends
Color us happy! Nothing says I have arrived like sporting a bold, confident and attention-grabbing burst of color from head to toe. Unlike color swatches of muted water and pastel colors, true saturated hues always command the spotlight and leave a lasting impression. With that in mind we definitely applaud these ladies for taking a strong position on their style.
Ms. Viola Davis in Armani Privé stole the show for us. Class personified in a bold and fearless package.
Ruth Negga in this Victorian inspired Valentino could have come off matronly but instead, the bold color made it sexy and burlesque-like
Blanca Blanco wore her confidence on her sleeve in this bold patterned yellow gown, but…..
… Perhaps her dress was a little too daring because there was BIG wardrobe malfunction exposing her woo-ha for the world to see! Go BOLD or go home we say
Spring has sprung! Garcelle Beauvais was spotted in breathtaking floral Jovani gown at the Elton John Oscars after party

HELL TO THE NO- OSCARS 2017’s FLOPS
Someone alert the Waltons that grandma Esther Walton has left the farm! What the Waltons is Dakota Johnson doing in this matronly Gucci smock? In our opinion, there’s no need for that chastity bow covering her because this look doesn’t give anyone the Frank Red Hots!
Boring wearing boring….. Felicity Jones wearing a 1-ply tissue folks!
Oh Halle Berry. Versace was not kind to you and neither was your hairdresser. Going off the radar shouldn’t mean going off your rocker…this one hurt
