Lupita Nyong’o was my favorite of the night! She wore the type of design I had predicted for her so imagine my excitement when I saw these pictures!

Last night, with a couple of hours left until the show, I saw this post on tumblr which I found  very amusing because it was so relevant to me and how I was feeling about Lupita – and apparently to some other 10,000 people. I wonder how the team behind Lupita’s red carpet appearances must have felt with the pressure of living up to everybody’s expectations. And they did!

Let me tell you why I am so fond of this look:

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post about the Haute Couture collections and , if you remember, I picked a gold Elie Saab dress for Lupita, the exact same design she wore last night. That’s how I pictured her: in a feminine deep v neck dress. And my dream came true! It wasn’t Elie Saab, it was Prada, as expected. The actress kept faithful to a minimalist style opting for very subtle details and accessories. Enjoy the pictures! (more…)

I haven’t been so excited about the Academy Awards in a very long time, but last night they managed to leave me in awe. Angelina, Lupita, Cate, they all looked incredibly beautiful on the red carpet and lived up to my expectations – especially Lupita, whose dress I was longing to see so bad. But first, let’s give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and talk about Angelina Jolie who I am always looking forward to seeing on the red carpet.

Angelina Jolie opted for an unexpected Elie Saab Couture dress which suits her personality so well. The silver color was quite predictible, but I simply love the fact that she chose Elie Saab! I thought she would go with Atelier Versace. Besides, this dress style does suit her very well. Here are some delightful pictures of her on the red carpet – I couldn’t narrow it down to two!

What do you think about over-the-knee boots? I personally have been quite on the fence about wearing a pair. And that’s mostly because they can come across as tacky. However, they can look incredibly chic if they’re paired with the right items. For the fall 2014-2015 collections, the designers have come up with a lot of variations, from the classic black leather boots, to the suede, patched or lace-up ones.  Here they are: (more…)

Naomi wore a Valentino Pre-Fall 2014 sheer gold v-neck dress. This design suits here very well. I like the fact that she opted for very subtle accessorizes and let the dress speak for itself.
