My Dream Oscars Look

February 24, 2016

I'm obsessed with red carpet fashion. If you've been following me for even a little bit, this isn't exactly a secret. So when I was asked what I would wear if I ever found myself on the Oscars red carpet, naturally I was excited!

We're going to assume that I've been nominated for my amazing lead acting role in a period piece with equally amazing costumes. In reality I'd have a higher chance of being nominated for best original screenplay, but unfortunately writers don't usually get to wear the big couture designers (please change this, Hollywood!), so let's just pretend I'm a famous actress so I can wear the best gown!

What I'd Wear

Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2016 Gown
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley | Pink Lip | Jemma Wynne necklace
I'm absolutely in love with this Reem Acra gown from the 2016 pre-fall collection. While it's a simple shape, the bold pink floral embroidery and sequin detailing makes this dress a standout piece. It's pretty enough to please the Fashion Police-watching crowd, but daring enough to be memorable; if I'm going on the red carpet on the biggest night in Hollywood, I'm going to make a statement! And of course, a Fashion Barbie's gotta wear pink!

To keep focus on the eye-catching gown. I'd keep my hair simple and sleek with soft, glamorous curls à la Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and my makeup would be minimal too, but with a punchy pink lip to compliment the dress. I'd wear a simple necklace like this Jemma Wynne one to highlight my collarbone without overpowering the look.

What My Date Would Wear

Midnight Blue Tuxedo from The Black Tux
My date's gotta have style, so he'd skip the traditional black tux for a cool navy one. I love that the deep blue would compliment the pinks and oranges of my dress, and plus, all the cool kids were wearing navy tuxedos last year

Also, ideally my date would be Michael B. Jordan and we would be the hot Hollywood It couple. Look how much fun we would have:

Sorry for blocking your face, Meryl Streep
But seriously, Oscars red carpet or elsewhere, I'm a big fan of the rental suits and tuxedos from The Black Tux. They're cool and modern and will make your date look amazing, which is very important for Instagram-able photos.
