Oscars 2017’s Fashions Go Golden

Last night’s Oscar performance, always my favorite night of the year, was most definitely a night to remember. We went from a upbeat opening, to some lighthearted political ranting and lot of fun, tricky ideas stemming from ‘candy falling from the heavens’ to a ‘drop by by a traveling bus tour’……all in all a long evening that didn’t seem quite as long and laborious to watch as making it fun was definitely the agenda.  However, the ending snafu will probably be the one thing remembered by all……has this ever happened before?!  A mix up on the Big Prize of the night left everyone speechless and feeling empathy for all of those involved that had to live through that moment! Our thoughts go to both….LaLa Land and to Moonlight, that both handled a very awkward situation with grace and style!

However, the fashion was great….not a big night for color! The stars chose lots of neutrals…..gold was number one, nude via Armani Prive for Nicole Kidman (her total look maybe my fave of the evening), ivory, ivory and black, black and white, white, black and navy…..(am I making my point here!)  The only real color pop of the evening was Bold Red and it looked beautiful, again from Armani Prive, and Valentino on Viola Davis and Nega respectively.  I’m sure that everyone noticed, amidst all of the major diamonds of the evening, the biggest accessory of the evening was the blue ribbon being worn, showing support for ACLU.

Below are my favorite picks from Hollywoods Biggest and Final Fashion Award moments…….

  1. Hi Roz,
    For the most part, I thought the gowns were magnificent, much classier that some years in the past. Halle Berry looked stunning with her curly hair. I didn’t even recognize her. Yes, I agree, this one will be remembered for the mix up at the end.
    Best wishes,
