Oscar 2015 Red Carpet Highlights Part 2 – Classic (with a twist)

23 Feb

The Oscar red carpet rundown continues (Part 1 is here) and here are some stunning takes on classic black and white designs (with some blue thrown into the mix).

LupitaLast year Lupita Nyong’o dominated award season and became the red carpet queen. Even when she isn’t nominated she still makes a jaw dropping entrance in a Calvin Klein Collection pearl dress.

Meryl StreepMeryl Streep not only had one of the reactions of the night (see end of post) but this is quite possibly my favorite ever Meryl Oscar look (and there have been many) in custom Lanvin. The tuxedo jacket kicks it off and the rest is just as chic.

Margot RobbieThis is somehow both demure and super sexy. Plus Margot Robbie’s Saint Laurent manages to incorporate a sheer element that doesn’t make me sigh with sadness. Amazing crimson lip color bonus points.

Reese WitherspoonThe #AskHerMore campaign is something I am all for (yes I am aware this might sound contradictory while I write this roundup) and the Fug Girls (Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan) eloquently sum up how I feel about Reese Witherspoon not answering the ‘who are you wearing?’ standard Q “#askhermore is great, but it’s ALSO okay to ask/say who you’re wearing. You got it for free. It’s a transaction. Tip your server.” Reese, your Tom Ford dress is stunning as was your performance in Wild.

Sienna MillerA beautiful Oscar de la Renta gown for Sienna Miller with bow and sequin detail.

Cate BlanchettAs with Lupita, Cate Blanchett is a winner from last year doing the presenter version of a stunning gown. The Maison Margiela Couture dress by itself would veer towards classic but dull and it is the Tiffany & Co necklace that really lets this outfit sing.

Eddie RedmayneEddie Redmayne is adorable as seen here and when he won Best Actor. He also continues to wow with his suit choices and for the Oscars Redmayne wears Alexander McQueen, as does Hannah Bagshawe making this ‘His and Hers High Fashion.’ Plus there is only a slight hint of the Redmayne lean.

Leaving you with this while I catch up on sleep:

Best of the 2015 BAFTA Red Carpet

9 Feb

Award season stretches for months and we’ve covered a lot of red carpet events here at TV Ate My Wardrobe; with the Oscars so near it means certain dresses are being saved for the last and biggest hurrah so the BAFTAs tends to suffer. This is not to say the red carpet is awash with blah as there are plenty of style highs from last night’s awards, but you can tell some are saving the wow entrance for two weeks time.

Reese Witherspoon BAFTAReese Witherspoon switches things up from cute and sparkly at the pre-party to this plunging purple sexy Stella McCartney gown.

Monica Bellucci and Lea SeydouxWe’re going to see a lot more of Monica Bellucci and Léa Seydoux on the red carpet when Spectre comes out at the end of the year and if it is anything like this then we are in for a treat.

Amy AdamsWhile I might be slightly distracted by the mustard coat in the background, Amy Adams is striking in custom white Lanvin. What really makes this look is the beaded detail and tassel belt (which I would not be able to stop twirling).

Julianne MooreI’ve been going back on forth on Julianne Moore’s Tom Ford gown as I love the color and velvet, but my aversion to chokers thanks to 90s flashback horrors is making the collar detail not so appealing. But Moore does look fantastic particularly while clutching her BAFTA so I couldn’t leave her off this list.

Keira KnightleyI love a tea length frock and Keira Knightley’s floral Giambattista Valli is delightful.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw BAFTAAnother sumptuous pastel gown for Gugu Mbatha-Raw this time in Prada and despite the Hathaway boob dart issue this is a beautiful look.

Rosamund PikeRosamund Pike’s award season style has been a bit hit and miss and at the BAFTAs she plays it safe in black Roland Mouret; it’s nothing to go crazy for but she does look good.

Felicity Jones BAFTAA Christian Dior Couture double for Felicity Jones this weekend and while it doesn’t hit the heights of her Golden Globes Dior it captures Jones’ classic and romantic style.

Hayley AtwellThe sheer trend is one I am not too fond of, but when polka dots are featured it makes me more inclined to like it and as presenter attire this is ideal. Continuing to adore all things Hayley Atwell.

Eddie RedmayneEddie Redmayne continues his winning streak in another fantastic velvet suit. This time it is a midnight blue Armani and wife Hannah Bagshawe wears an incredible Valentino gown; only a slight hint of the lean.

James McAvoy and Anne Marie DuffWhile Anne-Marie Duff’s gown is a tad bridal (and I need some inspiration in this area so thank you) I just couldn’t resist this super adorable shot of Duff with husband James McAvoy.

Best of the Golden Globes 2015 Red Carpet: Black Frocks, Crop Tops, Tuxes and Everything Else

12 Jan

Rounding out the TV Ate My Wardrobe 2015 Golden Globe coverage with a smorgasbord of style highs with some daring approaches and a whole array of classic looks. Plus a couple of family portraits.

Lorde GGNo I did not think a crop top would pop up on this list, but thanks to Lorde in an incredible Narciso Rodriguez ensemble this is a thing that has happened. I want this jacket in my life.

Claire DanesThis might be down to Danes style blindness but I love this Valentino frock (which Claire Danes referred to as a work of art on E!), well aside from the sheer panel. Ace earrings too.

Jessica ChastainWhile Jessica Chastain’s Atelier Versace gown is giving me all the Amy Adams American Hustle feelings and thereby it isn’t setting the world on fire, Chastain still looks super sexy and incredible.

Gina Rodriguez GGGina Rodriguez follows in the Golden Globe first season award winning group for sometimes teen show affairs – which includes Claire Danes, Keri Russell and Jennifer Garner – and she played it safe in black Badgley Mischka. She looks flawless and I can even see beyond the fringed sheer skirt. As I lamented yesterday I still need to watch Jane the Virgin and her speech was one of the many misty eye inducing moments.

Allison TolmanAllison Tolman opted for a similar shape gown to the one she wore at the Emmys and why not when it looks this good. Great accessory choices and overall styling.

Eddie Redmanye GGEddie Redmayne did not disappoint with his choice of Gucci tuxedo and there’s not a lot of guys who could work the velvet look this well. Love the olive color and cut of Hannah Bagshawe’s frock. Yes the lean is happening.

Jake and MaggieHappy sibling time and the Gyllenhaal’s are a delight. Jake gets beard points and while I think Maggie’s dress would be better in a bolder color (I thought blue whereas Whitney McIntosh suggested green) the Miu Miu frock is still lovely. Maggie Gyllenhaal winning for The Honourable Woman was another excellent speech moment:

“I’ve noticed a lot of people talking about the wealth of roles for powerful women in television lately, and when I look around the room at the women who are in here and I think about the performances that I’ve watched this year, what I see actually are women who are sometimes powerful and sometimes not. Sometimes sexy, sometimes not. Sometimes honorable, sometimes not. And what I think is new is the wealth of roles for actual women in television and in film.”

BoyhoodA celebratory portrait of the Boyhood family and I am all over Lorelei Linklater’s pink dip dyed hair and this is another sheer moment that in a surprise twist is working for me.

Tina and Amy tux heartGoing to end with two of the ladies of the night and the biggest swoon moment came from Tina Fey’s lady tux of amazing. This is hosting attire perfection. Another beautiful blue gown for Amy Poehler.

While it is still up on YouTube here is their searing, hilarious and incredible opening monologue:
