After weeks of anticipation the experts and I were finally able to gather in Luminate's community chat for our annual "Oscar Party". We all enjoy watching the show together while we discuss the fashions and offer each other a hand trying to find gowns and accessories to get the "look". This year's Oscars did not disappoint and we noticed a few trends that seemed to be prominent. Along with a throwback to old Hollywood glamor and sophistication shades of red seemed to be very popular as well as metallic gowns that glittered with every step. Long trains and diaphanous skirts were showing up frequently on the red carpet, often proving to be challenging for the starlets to maneuver in but it was all about the drama of the night. Side swept hair in the styles of vintage Hollywood and soft up-dos were perfect styles to compliment the millions of dollars in diamond jewelry worn by the stars. Everyone had their favorites and there were not very many misses that we had noticed. Some of the starlets accessorized with matching clutches while others decided on bright splashes of contrasting colors. We were very busy last night with so many photos to tag and we continue to be busy today, everyone loves seeing the Oscar photos and fashions. We always enjoy what we do but the Award shows are always a lot of fun and we look forward to each and every one of them.
