Oscars 2014! Hollywood style meets bridal style?

Oscars 2014!  This fashion recap is one of my favorite posts of the year.  I love movies, I love Hollywood style, and I love elaborate events!  I'm a sucker for black tie weddings and I like seeing bridal trends inspired by red carpet looks.  Here are my thoughts about this year's Oscar ceremony: Whites, silvers and nudes.  These gowns directly translate into bridal, and they're just of few of the subtle hues featured on the red carpet in 2014.  I love the structure of Kate Hudson's Atelier Versace dress, she looked impeccable from head to toe - so glamourous! Another shade that stood out was pale pink.  I was pretty impressed with Lady Gaga's skintight Versace-- seemed like she was channeling another famous Versace…no? Lupita Nyong'o rocked a pretty headband with her gorgeous dress (she made my top 2 below…), and I have adored her short hair since she burst on the awards scene earlier this year.  I saw several beautiful ladies with killer short 'dos on the red carpet this year (not to mention Ellen!) - will we see more brides following suit this year?  And now for my two favorite looks of the night: Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive and Lupita Nyong'o in Prada.

I think the shade of Cate's dress is perfection.  And the delicate appliqués -- what a unique, but still pretty and wearable, statement gown!  Cate rarely disappoints.  Her earrings, hair and makeup are all flawless and the dress fits her like a glove.  A beautiful, very expensive glove. This ingenue is killing it!  I just love her choices.  The dress, the jewelry, the headband…simply stunning.  I don't necessarily love the dress on it's own, and I think the pale blue color is really hard to pull off for most women, but on Lupita, it's amazing.  The neckline works with her body and the she glows in the color.  I won't be surprised if we see more of this shade of blue incorporated into weddings in 2014, and I definitely think headbands will be more prominent this year.

Well, that's it!  Another Oscar ceremony down!
