If I were to ever attend the Oscars, besides when I always do in my wildest dreams, I feel like it is the one awards show that I would feel like such a little kid, no matter what my age, among all of the grown ups. Like on nights when I remember my parents coming home from a night out, all dressed up and still being able to smell the sweet perfume my mom had on when she would kiss me goodnight as I was half asleep in my bed, I always pictured them as having gone to some fancy, amazing place that I couldn’t wait to go to when I grew up. Obviously, they weren’t attending the Oscars and probably only went out for date night but in my mind, wherever it was, it was going to be fabulous as soon as I was old enough to go. Even though, at 31, I am clearly a grown up (well, most days) I picture the Oscars to be this lovely, sophisticated, elegant night that wouldn’t be like any other, where I would constantly be in awe of all the classy and polished adults I would be surrounded by, just like I was in awe of my parents when I was little. That said, last night did not disappoint in terms of getting that feeling of all the elegance and glamour oozing out of my television screen.
I am all for taking fashion risks but I feel like, this night, is more about classic fashion, which each of these actresses achieved, in my opinion. These were my favorites from last night. The intricacy of these gowns were mind-blowing and hats off to each of these designers. Absolutely stunning.
