The Red Carpet, Oscar Style

Maybe it’s a little wrong – or maybe the red carpet at the Oscar’s was just disappointing – but the only thing I really want to talk about is the continuing controversy surrounding John Galliano and the house of Christian Dior. You could read all about that here and pretty much everywhere else on Twitter and the fashion blogosphere.

And so to make my opinion all the more obvious, let’s start with Nicole Kidman in Dior Haute Couture and Sharon Stone in Dior. Neither commented on the Galliano topic and Sharon Stone appropriately opted out of all interviews. But it’s obvious that these leading ladies are standing by their man (as do I, until further notice).

And now on to more trend-related news. RED becomes the big color expression ranging from a firey hue to a poppy shade on Jennifer Hudson. The strapless mermaid styles impress on Anne Hathaway and Sandra Bullock.

But what about Natalie? Aside from collecting Best Actress awards, Nat led the pink trend at the Golden Globes last month, and now she also harbors in a plum purple trend which ScarJo echos in lace. Others appear in lavender and pale pastel hues.

Moving right along.. All that sparkle that we saw last month turns into silver shimmer. Applause for those on-trend slits on Gweneth Paltrow and Mallika Sherawat. But have we not already exhausted the embellishment trend?

Apparently not. Nude and flesh undertones continue forward as a prime match for embellishment.

Well, that’s all the news that’s fit to print. Was it me or did the Golden Globes have much more to offer on the red carpet?
