Every year I am excited about the Oscars, the biggest fashion runway in the world. Watching the arrivals on the red carpet is inspiring. So while the social media universe was exploding with comments and global fashion experts where picking their favourites of the evening, I was ready to post my best Oscar dresses. I knew all about the no-color trend of the season, the flawless make up and wavy hairstyles I loved.

Trend #1- Romancing the … grey stone

It seemed as if most of the female nominees decided on pastels but the dramatic choice for the 85th Oscar award ceremony was white. I was impressed by Charlize Theron’s pixie haircut and amazing Dior gown.

Just in case you were wondering what shoes Charlize Theron was wearing under her amazing gown, these are her red carpet Oscar Roger Vivier white sandals according to “the coveteur”.

The story behind the Prada pink dress according to Ann’s announcement ” It came to my attention late Saturday night that there would be a dress worn to the Oscars that is remarkably similar to the Valentino I had intended to wear, and so I decided it was best for all involved to change my plans. Though I love the dress I did wear, it was a difficult last-minute decision as I had so looked forward to wearing Valentino in honor of the deep and meaningful relationship I have enjoyed with the house and with Valentino himself. I deeply regret any disappointment caused.” By  “remarkably similar” dress probably she means Jennifer Aniston’s…
