Its that time of year again – awards show and fashion shows – and believe me, the two go very much hand in hand. New York’s Autumn Winter collections have just finished so I wanted to do a post on all me runway to red carpet predictions for the upcoming Oscars. This runway report has nothing to do about the practical trends we will be wearing come fall – this is all about the hollywood glamour we can keep an eye out for when the Academy Awards happen in the beginning of March. I am going to help you be in the know so you can keep up with all the E! reporters on the red carpet. The major trends are much the same as we’ve been seeing: black, white, black and white, red, metallics, embellishment, sheer, prints and lots and lots of leg! That’s right, shoes will once again get their chance to shine on the red carpet with more hi-low hemlines and thigh high slits that keep on going… You may even notice a nod to 80′s over the top glam as well as 90′s subdued minimalism. Glamour is everywhere and figuring out what you want to see your favorite Oscar contender to be wearing can be great fun – so check out some of my favorite gowns from NY fashion week and make your runway to red carpet predictions! My one to watch is Lupita Nyong’o who can do no wrong when it comes to here red carpet decisions – will she wear Ralph Lauren again, go for a pop of bright color or do something completely unexpected? Seeing runway translate to the red carpet is one of my favorite things – so check out some of the fabulous frocks that designer are creating that are making celebrities and their stylist vie for! PS – if you click any of the pics it’ll take you to that designer’s Autumn/Winter ’14 collection on style.com (my favorite site) so you can see all the latest designs for yourself!
