All I can say about the Oscars last night is “wow.” It was night of mistakes (okay, just one really big one), but not when it came to fashion. I didn't see one jaw-dropping-but-in-a-bad-way dress on the red carpet at all. As I was typing this, I almost accidentally wrote "runway" instead of "red carpet." Perhaps that was a Freudian slip or fashion slip, but runway is a good way to describe the general vibe of the evening. The dresses were big, bold and much like the movies, each one told a story in its own unique way. Here are some favorites from the night along with similar dresses that will inspire you to win best dressed at your next big event.
Naomie Harris was simply stunning in Calvin Klein. Look just as wild in white with this shorter Black Halo cocktail dress. It has the same idea sans sequins. But, if you'd rather wear the "Best Supporting Dress" of the evening, this high-low from Halston Heritage provides a little more support than something strapless.
I'm completely obsessed with Jillian Reeves' jewel toned Matthew Christopher dress, styled by my girl, Ali Levine. Ieena For Mac Duggal's gown takes the trophy for being equally grand, but way less expensive. This Halston Heritage dress is in the same color palette, but more appropriate for a less formal event.
