The Oscars

The Oscars 2014

The Oscars are a night of glitz and glamour, and last night was no exception.  Meryl Streep looked amazing as always in black and white Lanvin.  She hasn't aged since her nomination years ago for The Bridges of Madison County.

Everything from her accessories to her hairstyle were age appropriate.  Meryl Streep, we think you are wonderful.  We are excited to see what you choose to wear next year when you are sure to be chosen for your nineteenth Oscar nomination.  Kelly Osbourne, on the other hand, sported a hairstyle that was not so age appropriate.  

It seems as though she got her hair inspiration from the drag queen version of Mrs. Doubtfire, comedian Dame Edna.  We are ready to see her try something more natural even though we know that's not her style.  However, we did love her dress.  

She chose to wear a white Badgley Mischka gown with a shear beaded capelet.  The accessories were also age appropriate and embodied her glamorous vintage vibe.  Like Kelly, other attendees stayed away from color opting for nude shades similar to their skin tones.  

While we respect the classic nude dress, the beautiful details tend to get lost.  On a positive note we are happy to see women finally staying away from tanning beds.  Our favorite looks of the night were worn by Kate Hudson and Karen O.  

Kate chose a silver Atelier Versace gown that screamed old school red carpet glamour.  We loved the draping of the fabric across her shoulders and down her back.  It's a look that Karen O., singer for the Yeah Yeah Yeah's, chose as well.  

Her black satin Camilla Stærk gown also had the same shoulder draping.  The dress was paired with Neil Lane diamonds and one of our favorite clutches from the night.  Her gold and black Ray Wolf clutch is definitely something we would love to have in our wardrobe.  The art deco clutch was similar to the Bulgari clutch worn by Naomi Watts.  We'll take one of each please.

As far as the mens styles from the night, the Oscars always call for a tux.  The most predominate accessory for men was their choice of neckwear.  While some men chose color most stuck with the classic black tie or bow tie.  We've voted, and the Oscar goes to 'The Bow Tie'.

Last night was fun and fabulous.  Congratulations to all of the Oscar winners.  Especially you, Jordan Catalano, I mean Jared Leto.
