Academy Awards 2016

Last night was the biggest night of the year for Hollywood, and what I like to refer to as “my Super Bowl”… the Academy Awards. And aside from all of the great work and incredible performances of the past year, it really is all about the fashion. My perennial favorite on any red carpet is Cate Blanchett, and last night was no exception. She wowed in a seafoam green, Armani Privé confection of a dress – with delicate Swarovski beading and feather details. She can do no wrong in my book, and it was hands down, the look of the night.

Other favorites of mine included Blanchett’s Carol co-star, Rooney Mara in delicate lace Givenchy, Lady Gaga in a modern look by Brandon Maxwell, Saiorse Ronan in dreamy, green Calvin Klein, and Margot Robbie in gold, sequined snakeskin from Tom Ford. These days every starlet is armed with a stylist – so the hits far outweigh the misses. I have to say that I was disappointed by a few, but I will keep those opinions to myself!
