Dressed to impress or depress?

Dressed to impress or depress?

THE Oscars red carpet is almost like a glamorous fashion show, the clothes horses for the major powerhouses in the fashion industry wear designs that are couture,vintage or fresh off the runway.

“You just referred to the actresses as clothes horses” – And that they are.
Many are paid, yes, paid, just to wear those dresses.

I’m pretty sure there are a few people in this list who are wearing what they wore, not because they liked the dress, but because they liked the figure they were offered to wear it.

The Dresses

Hailee Steinfeld had one of my favourite dresses.

It was by Ralph and Russo; a British Haute Couture brand.

The dress is a translucent white/silver tulle type material, although it’s more than likely a lot more fancier than tulle, but I’m not a fashionista, so don’t hate, just appreciate… Appreciate the fact that I can appreciate this!


Instead of just saying “I love the neckline”, I’ll say I love the scalloped edges of the dress, it’s beautiful and it’s not just a normal hem, it shows a completely obvious element of detail that’s often overlooked, and understated.

The dress is embroidered with the most beautiful flowers, using a metallic threat. The fabric, metallic nature of the dress and the flowers affords Hailee an air of ethereal innocence. All in all, a really lovely, light and age appropriate dress.

Way to go!

Jessica Biel

Oh honey.




Colour – Gurl, you went for gold, but you got the fools gold.

I mean… It’s not a terrible dress, but it’s not a great one either, like, where are the rest of the sequins?

It looks sloppy – It looks like it was the last dress left in TK Maxx because one of the new members of staff accidentally hovered it up and she had to pick it up on the way.

I ain’t even sorry.

Brie Larson in Oscar De La Renta – Uhhhmazing

This dress creates such an amazing silhouette.

The neckline is gorgeous, it is literally on point…On points?

It’s black and velvety. It’s a simple black dress, but it’s really not. It makes you think.

Emma Stone’s dress reminded me of a long flapper dress.
it was a perfect fit for her, and I love the way that it was the perfect length – Of course, it wouldn’t be made too long, but the way in which the fringe just hits the floor is spot on.

She’s wearing gold, implying she’s going for the gold. It’s a beautifully warm coloured dress and it suits her skin tone perfectly… Will she take the gold though, or will the only gold she goes home with be her dress?

I don’t really like the dress, but I kind of do.
I don’t really like the actress, but the dress fits really well, and the way it moves when she walks is reminiscent of liquid gold – it’s really elegant, well fitting and not revealing, which is rare, because everyone normally whips out whatever body part they want.
