There was much anticipation. We waited with bated breath to see what the bride would wear on her wedding day. I am, of course, talking about the royal wedding of Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex to Meghan Markle. Come D- day and there she was, walking down the aisle, in a Givenchy gown, elegant in its simplicity.
Oscars 2016 fashion: Pastel rules
The curtains have come down on Oscars 2016. Leo De Caprio has finally taken home the golden man. For us fashionistas, it is time to take stock of the frocks or take a closer look at Oscars 2016 fashion. Who wore what? Who ruled the red carpet and who was slammed by the fashion pundits?
At Oscars 2016, the pastel palette ruled the roost. Emily Blunt was royalty personified in a quartz pink gown handcrafted with beads and crystals. Lady Gaga in an Oyster pink dress made an unusually subdued entry, as did Jennifer Jason Leigh and Louise Roe.
Oscars 2016 fashion: Abundance of colour
Oscars 2016 fashion had its quota of staple blacks. However, colours like cobalt blue and flamenco red were worn with a stunning effect. Charlize Theron won hands down when it came to wearing colour. Her flamenco red spaghetti strap gown with a deep cleavage and a long train had us gasping for more. Tina Fey accentuated the stark simplicity of her cobalt blue Versace evening gown with a statement Bulgari choker.
Oscar 2016 fashion: Ode to nature
Oscar 2016 fashion paid homage to all things natural. Green colour found favour with many celebrities who walked the red carpet. Australia’s very own Kate Blanchett wore a pale green Armani Prive’ dress embellished with hand crafted silk flowers and crystals. Isla Fisher wore a Marchesa dress emblazoned with larger than life flowers. Amy Poehler added the oriental touch dressed in an Andrew GN dress, decorated with orchids and butterflies.
Nature plays a big role in Deidaa’s 2016 scarf collection. Team@deidaa has been doing extensive research on Australian flora in 2015. Results of that research will be manifest in Deidaa’s 2016 scarves.
Oscars 2016 fashion: Metallic shimmer
Not everyone was subdued at the Oscars. Naomi Watts provided the glamour quotient, dressed in an oil spill, sequinned Armani Prive’ dress. Morgot Robbie dazzled in a metallic gold Tom Ford dress accessorised with a stark black clutch bag.
Puffball dresses and off shoulder gowns were high on popularity charts. Branded jewelry and hand beaded boxy clutch bags completed the red carpet look.
As Oscars 2016 drew to an end, it was obvious that in 2016, fashion will be ruled by nature, the pastel palette and the sensuality of Spain and its flamenco dancers.
