The voters have spoken (hey, that’s you!) and the top five best dressed looks from the Oscars red carpet are IN. (Of course, there is no deadline on this poll, so please cast your vote at any time and, while you’re at it, there’s the after-party red carpet, too.) So just for some post-Awards show Monday kicks, we shopped out the top red carpet-inspired looks for you. And, of course, Lupita headband, included.
Oh, Lupita Nyong’o. Not only did she win the Best Supporting Actress award, but her beautiful custom Prada dress and gold and diamond Fred Leighton headband (which inevitably spawned its own twitter account) scored raves too—by a landslide, might I add. So here’s how you can co-opt a winning red carpet princess look for day:
Sandra Bullock exuded Hollywood glam (while turning down free pizza on national television) in a strapless and beautifully draped Alexander McQueen gown. With Amy Adams also opting for the inky hue, the normally subdued navy is getting its dazzling moment in the spotlight. Think about a navy frock for spring (bridesmaid’s dress, maybe?):
Champagne hued dresses with exquisite embellishments were the theme of the evening with Best Actress winner Cate Blanchett at the top of the list in Armani Privé. The look is both alluring and elegant—perfect for spring and summer weddings, cocktail parties, and fancy date nights. Shop out a few Cate-inspired dresses, long and short, here:
Jennifer Lawrence stunned (and tripped and ate pizza) in a bold red strapless Dior gown with peplum detail and a dazzling $2 million diamond Neil Lane necklace—worn backwards, naturally. Every girl needs a little (or long) red dress and sparkly statement necklace, which you can wear any way you like:
Charlize Theron absolutely smoldered in a spectacular black Dior couture gown with exquisite pleating on the train. The dramatic heart neckline was the perfect showcase for her whopping 31-carat Harry Winston necklace. Bling, bling.
