I get inspiration from everywhere, and there is no greater inspiration in the fashion world than watching the Academy Awards show. This was without a doubt the most fun I've had watching current upscale fashion trends,colors, fabrics, materials, jewelry, bags. It was definitely a fabulous night at the Oscars!
I am an awards show junkie and always look forward to this night, and I have never watched an awards show where almost every woman who got on stage looked 100% wonderful, from head to toe. There were a few "not so great" (Cate Blanchett, sorry but no-go), but on the whole it was a glittery feast.
I decided for this post to focus on one celeb: Anne Hathaway. She wore a total of eight amazing looks (7 for the stage), along with several changes in styles of hair, jewelry and make-up. Each look was well-thought out, colorful, textural and really stunning to look at on stage. I thought all were beautiful. Stylist Rachel Zoe was paid a hefty figure to style Hathaway for the big night and I think it was all worth it.
Here are images of all of her hosting wardrobe--she was a quick-changer! The best one hands-down was the gorgeous blue Giorgio Armani Prive gown. It looked as if they poured it over her, and the luminous custom satin fabric under the bright lights just added to a striking visual display.
