Get the Oscars look
The Oscars 2012 were not only a triumph for The Artist (congrats!) but for the dresses too. From peplums to polka dots, lace to laser cut, this year’s style certainly didn’t disappoint. And you can get the look of some of the most awe-inspiring dresses right here; take your inspiration from these leading ladies.
Gwyneth’s Tom Ford caped gown has a minimalist, simple quality to it which is accentuated by an unexpected cape. Choose this simple dove grey Alexander McQueen mini for an edgier version.
A bejewelled, sequin dress never goes out of fashion and Rose Byrne‘s Vivienne Westwood is updated with barely-there accessories. Apply the same ethos to our Marchesa Notte evening gown – less is more.
It’s all about the neckline and bright shade of Emma Stone’s Giambattista Valli dress – we love! For a similar look, simply create your own extra-volume neckline on this Halston Silk Column dress by tying a piece of fabric in the same shade in a loose, looped bow around your neck. Think of it as a glammed up neck scarf!
Kristen Wiig plays down her tiered J Mendel gown with loose, beach waves but the key to this look is to complement your dress to your skin tone – hers is the perfect shade of caramel. Ooze the same sex appeal in this nude Zimmerman maxi.
We like to think Meryl Streep was sending subliminal messages by dressing as the Oscar statue! Lanvin‘s gold lame wrap dress may err on the tacky side for some, but by shortening both the length and the sleeves, Halston’s version veers into stunning territory.
