This past Sunday I spent the afternoon watching The Oscars red carpet live. If you tuned in, how did you feel about what they wore? I was pleasantly surprised at how many looks I loved!! Some of my top favorites: Naomi Watts, Halle Berry & Zoe Saldana.
Of the several looks, I personally nominated the two for best dressed that left me day dreaming. But since I don’t have a place fancy enough to wear one of these star-studded looks, I’ve done something with each that’s a little more practical and perfectly posh too! This posh that I speak of is in the form of party inspiration. Because how amazing would it be to host a celebration inspired by your favorite red carpet look?!
Below you will see how fashion has personally inspired my creative point of view. Two of my favorite looks transformed into the perfect party palettes.
First up the beautiful Stacy Keibler. She looked incredibly dazzling in this Naeem Khan embellished gown for Fall 2013. The design and intricate detailing left me speechless as did her overall styling. A true stunner in gun-metal glam. I am literally obsessed.
How I was inspired
I chose a color scheme of black, platinum and gun metal to match fabric in the gown. The shape of the chandelier and serving tray reminding me of the overall design and structure of the dress, with disco dust and edible confetti glitter to tie in the embellished detail. This party inspiration would be ideal for any celebration with a glamorous theme. Bachelorette parties, engagement parties or birthdays come to mind.
The second beauty I nominated for best dressed was Kerri Washington in Miu Miu. This gown in coral with the diamond studded bust truly sang to me and reminded me that the warmth of the sun is near. There’s something so bright and welcoming about this cheerful hue that reminds me of Spring! I also love that Kerri added an unexpected pop of color to her look with the red shoe and bag. A true vision!!

How I was inspired
I chose a color scheme of coral and gold to match the look of the gown, with added touches of red to tie in Kerri’s shoes and handbag. Gold details in the cake, bunting and edible jewels were a necessity to reference the embroidered bust, as was a drink recipe as refreshing as her overall look. This inspiration would be ideal for a Spring welcoming celebration. Perhaps a baby shower, bridal shower, tea party or birthday.
