The dresses are always my favorite part of watching the Oscars. Even if you haven’t seen a single Oscar-nominated film, who doesn’t enjoy looking at all the pretty dresses and picking out your favorite? (Along with picking out the flops.)
I personally think Jennifer Lawrence easily walked away with the best-dressed award for her classically feminine pink and white Dior dress with the voluminous skirt (even if she did fall on her way to accepting the Oscar).
Here’s a few other noteworthy outfits from the night. Who was your favorite? Who didn’t you like? (All photos by AP unless otherwise noted.)
Target will unveil its Prabal Gurung collection Sunday, its latest collaboration with a high-end designer. Gurung’s women’s clothing, purses, shoes and jewelry range from $12.99 to $199.99 at Target.
No word yet on whether Gurung’s will sell out like Jason Wu’s collection did.
Gurung’s clothing ranges from brightly colored ruffled dresses to pieces that look like they’ve been subject to Jackson Pollock’s paintbrush.
What do you think? What would you wear or not be caught dead in? Personally, I love the classic-with-an-update ruffled dresses, like the bright red one. I think some of the more busy prints are probably a little more appropriate for teens than someone my age.
Target unveiled the new looks from designer Jason Wu that will go on sale between Feb. 5 and March 6. The mix of dresses, skirts, tops, handbags and scarves look pretty cute, and seem like they would flatter most body types. Target describes the line this way:
Jason Wu for Target brings a mix of modern, sophisticated pieces in bold hues and feminine prints that women everywhere will love. The designer collection is inspired by the vision of an American girl in Paris, bringing Jason Wu’s signature aesthetic and attention to detail to Target’s guests at incredible prices.
The prices seem pretty affordable. Apparel will cost from $19.99 to $59.99, while handbags and scarves will cost $19.99 to $49.99. (The look above: Jersey Dress in Red/Navy Stripes, $34.99 Cat Tote in Cream, $39.99).
Here are some of the looks.
New York Fashion Week ended last night, so I thought it would be fun to look back at a few of the creations from some of the top designers. I really like this dress from L.A.M.B, Gwen Stefani‘s line, for its color, print and flowing lines. And I love the neck line and the details on the Oscar de la Renta. My least favorites: Calvin Kelin’s red dress and Isaac Mizrahi’s print frock. Where’s the shape? These models look like they’re wearing upscale sacs. Bad!
What do you think? You rate the look.
