Last night all the stars were out in the glimmering glory, dazzling us anew as they strut the red gas stream known as the Red Carpet. Some were dressed to impressed and some, not so much, and a few, whom I will not mention, looked skeletal and wasted away–I worry. However, I am one who likes to focus on positive things and energy, so we will celebrate the gorgeous frocks that were worn by many of the starlets last night, giving us a glimpse into some of the trends that will be available to us this Fall 2014/15 season.
This year’s event was dedicated to Charles James, America’s First Couturier, and the participants were supposed to embellish themselves. So let’s see how they did, shall we?
First things first, all shout outs must go out to the fashion darling, who channeled Josephine Baker all the way down to her toe nails last night, Lupita Nyong’o. She embellished her little Prada flapper dress to within an inch of it’s life, which was a major risk, and I loved every second of it. Love it or hate, you must admit Lupita didn’t hold any punches by being decked in green and sparkling faux emerald jewels and feathers. Lupita in thisamazing frock, showed us how to channel our inner flapper. Which leads us to the first trend–Art Deco Redux.
Art Deco Redux
Art Deco Redux is the reintroduction, reinspired trend that gets its gutsiness from the The Great Gatsby era of flappers, nouveau riche, and artisans. This trend is over the top, at time gaudy, but extremely artistic in nature, yet extremely glam in a riotous way. Here are few starlets who wore this trend well.
From it’s flowing curve hugging gowns, to the high shine of sparkling diamonds and finger waved coiffed hair, this trend is definitely for the glam squad of women are truly enjoying celebrating their feminine curves, like the screen goddesses of old. Check out these starlets that embodied this trend to the ‘gilt’ last night.
Bohemian Glamazon is what I dubbed the trend that is layered with sometimes free flowing fringed frocks, whispy dresses that are embellished in a tribalistic way with stones, flowers, feathers or what have you or midriff baring outfits. It’s the sort of trend that is mimicked by Valentino’s SS 2014 Collection that reflects that nomadic cultures of old and these leading ladies truly work their magic in this trend.
Here’s to all the women who made us drool last night and that inspired our fall wardrobes.
