Some call it the fashion Olympics, Hollywood's most glamorous night or even the pinnacle of the awards season, and the Oscars are definitely the time for A-list stars to bring their A-list red carpet game. Last night the biggest fashion winners wore uniquely textured looks. Let's take a look at the details:
Naomi Watts wore an Armani gown in fresh silhouette made from metallic shells with an illusion bandeau of black caviar beads. The unexpected texture made this look modern and special.
Lupita N'yongo's stunning Calvin Klein Collection dress was constructed of over 6,000 pearls of varying sizes. The look was epic and will definitely be one of her most memorable fashion moments.
Sienna Miller's Oscar de la Renta dress was navy and black featuring velvet bows and lovely lace layered over strategically placed sequins. The use of various fabrics on together created an elegant and luxe feeling.
My best dressed of the night was Rosamund Pike, in a Givenchy gown fitting her name: rosy lace was layered over a silk structured corset leading to a scalloped bodice. Romantic yet sexy, this timeless look took the 'red carpet red dress' style to a new level with the dimensional lace element.
These stars show that textured styles are the way to go when your fashion goal is maximum impact. 3-D dressing is a winning strategy that you can incorporate into your wardrobe with layered fabrics and unique construction elements that are anything but textbook texture.
