The Grand Social – Bec and Bridge Kalahari Mesh Dress

http://www.thegrandsocial.com.au/product/bec-and-bridge/dresses/kalahari-mesh-dress

There was a sea of ruffles and colour on this year’s red carpet and I thought I would compile a short list of dresses that I loved.  I was slightly surprised to not see any Alexander McQueen on the runway, but then again, Lady GaGa didn’t attend 😛

So here it is – my short list of stand out gowns:

Amanda Seyfried in Armani Prive

Anna Kendrick in Elie Saab

Cameron Diaz in Oscar de la Renta

Demi Moore in Versace

Elizabeth Banks in Versace

Jennifer Lopez in Armani Prive

Kate Winslet in Salvatore Ferragamo

Miley Cyrus in Jenny Packham

Zoe Kravitz in Alexis Mabille

Honourable Mentions…

Kristen Stewart in Monique Lhuillier – It’s a good thing she chose a black dress because the girl can’t crack a smile to save her life.  I think this picture shows the biggest smile I have ever seen on her face.

Rachel McAdams in Elie Saab – LOVE!  This dress almost made it into the top spot for me.

Sandra Bullock in Marchesa – For those that have been following this blog, you know that I have a soft spot for Marchesa.  Sandra Bullock looks like she could contend for the gig as the Oscar statue itself.

Sarah Jessica Parker in Chanel Couture – I love the unique design to this dress.  If I could pick one con about it, it’s the seam down the front.  I find it takes away slightly from the dress.

Sigourney Weaver in Lanvin – The carpet wasn’t the only thing that was red at this year’s Oscars.  There seemed to be a plethora of red dresses but this one by Lanvin absolutely takes the top spot when it comes to the colour.

And the award goes to…

Maggie Gyllenhaal in Dries Van Noten – The graphic print is absolutely beautiful and she wears it to perfection.

And how could we do an Oscars Best Dressed List without showcasing some of the worst’s:

Charlize Theron in Christian Dior – Oh Charlize, everyone knows just how tempting you can be.  We don’t need a set of cupcakes on your chest to tempt us further.

Diane Kruger in Chanel – This one hurts.  It pains me to put a Chanel dress on the list of worst’s but I just can’t find a place for this one in my heart.

Meryl Streep in Chris March – Meryl, we have come to expect so much more from you.  Although there is nothing really “wrong” with this piece…it’s just “meh”

Zoe Saldana in Givenchy – As we saw above, ruffles were worn much better than this!

Lace is often perceived as being appropriate for evening wear only.  This spring, it has been re-introduced as an element that adds sophistication to even the most casual of outfits.  By day, lace can provide softness to a look when worn as a light layer.  It even provides structure to a design when added to a garment as an applique.  Both 3.1 Phillip Lim and Marchesa have mastered this visual technique.  Alexander McQueen’s full spring ready to wear line was laced (mind the pun) with a graphic print that mimics the classic mesh throughout as you can see on his leggings.

I have often shied away from lace as I find it can look cheap or remind me of bad lingerie but these styles have shown me how it can be done right.  I’m looking forward to infusing it into my spring wardrobe and using it to accent some casual pieces that simply need a touch of elegance.
