Glamour was the word at the 2017 Oscars. Shimmer, gold and bright colours took centre stage, while overall styles were somewhat subdued compared to previous years. Here are our favourite styles from the infamous red carpet this year and a few top SilkFred picks to help you get that glamour look.
The Dark & Sheer Look
Katy Perry surprised us with her subtle blonde hair cut, but reminded us of her funk with her futuristic neckline; we just loved how this dress was classy up top with a sexy slit on the bottom:
If you love this look as much as we do, then you’ll love this classic black number that has a similar silhouette theme, with an elegant ruffle neckline and a spicy slit.
The Shimmery Look
Nobody does shimmer better than Emma Stone. This look accentuates her pale features and works perfectly with a red lip (and red hair, if you have it!). Make sure you’re sparkling at your next event with this rose gold beauty:
This sequin embellished maxi dress is the perfect way to get this golden glam look, which we saw on many celebs this year.
The ‘Lady In Red’ Look
You can’t go wrong with a bright red go-to dress, and Ruth Negga showed this off better than ever at this year’s Oscars.
Make sure you always have a statement red dress like this one ready in your closet – for emergencies only, of course.
The Full Skirt Look
Bringing out a girly vibe for the main event, Felicity Jones stood out from the crowd with this gorgeous ballerina style dress with full skirt.
Add a full skirt style like this one to your outfit to make sure you stand out in the crowd and guarantee you have plenty of personal space since your outfit takes up the extra room.
The White Wedding Look
One day in your life to wear a stunning white dress? No thank you. We’re taking a page out of Naomie Harris’ book and dressing like our big day is every day.
While we don’t recommend rocking the white wedding look to an actual wedding, this ivory lace maxi dress is perfect to be an angel at any other well-dressed occasion.
Since you can never be overdressed or overeducated, don’t feel like these dresses need to be kept in your closet just for super fancy occasions. If you’re feeling extra fabulous one day and you want to wear one of these to the pub, I say go for it, because nothing looks as elegant as a woman having a pint in a ballgown.
