Academy Awards Inspiration

Hello Beauties!!

Awards season has now come to end and the Academy Awards did not disappoint last night.  I normally switch the channel after watching the red carpet footage but I decided to stay tuned in for the actual show this year.  The movie themed Cirque du Soliel was over the top, amazing!  A production on a smaller scale for a glamorous black tie event would be a modern and luxurious take on entertainment.

There were some great looks that can transition from the red carpet to the bridal aisle.  Here are my picks!

Bridal Gown Inspiration
Rooney Mara in Givenchy looked chic in a mermaid style with a sheer neckline.  Mila Jovovich looked glamorous in a one shoulder Elie Saab.  Gwyneth Paltrow looked modern in a Tom Ford gown.  A cape would be a fresh option when modest attire is required during the ceremony.

Bridesmaid Inspiration

Jessica Chastain wore a strapless black and gold Alexander McQueen.  Her hair was also great wedding inspiration- soft, romantic and away from her face.  Melissa McCarthy was in a beautiful blush tone Marina Rinaldi gown.  The ethereal fabric and jeweled accents would be so luxurious on a maid of honor.

Mother of the Bride Inspiration
Octavia Spencer was wonderful as Millie in "The Help" and she looked like a star on the red carpet in Tadashi Shoji.  The sleeves and the beading were extremely figure flattering.  The cut of this dress would look amazing on the Mother of the Bride in a variety of colors to complement the rest of the bridal party.

Which red carpet looks inspired you this year??
