I love Oscars. I love cinema and the platform awards the best of the best. Also, it is a night for fashion to have a ball. Ladies and gents of Hollywood step out in the finest, and I get to pick trends for the season. What’s not to love?! Fortunately, Oscar 2020 was no different – it awarded great movies and presented a fashionable red carpet.
I have put together all the fashion that I loved on Oscar 2020’s red carpet in a video for you.
As for trends, here’s what I picked up:
- Monochrome is having a moment, and it is not restricted to dresses alone. From shoes to bags, everything is ONE colour. And if done right, it is beautiful.
- Metallics – you can love them, hate them, but you can’t evade them. Glistening silver ball gowns were all the rage, and looked spectacular. The key is to pick a shade that works best for your skin tone.
- Jewel tones are back (but did they truly ever leave?) on the red carpet. Illustrious purples, deep greens, regal copper – it was all there.
- As far as beauty is concerned, less is more and classic is the way forward. Edge is now in the details, like blue waterline and eyelashes. Lips either stay nude or go red, and contouring takes passenger seat.
