It’s no secret that everyone looks at celebrities for style inspiration, so why would it be any different for brides looking at these stars during awards season? While these frocks may come in a multitude of colors (compared to the white shade we usually see brides adorn), inspiration can come from shape and fabrics, along with hair and jewels! Here are my favorite dresses that I know will be inspiring gowns that come down the aisle this year.
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture, Chopard jewelry, and a Roger Vivier clutch
She is taking the dropped waist, fit and flare shape to the max, very reminiscent of Kenneth Pool!
Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive and Harry Winston jewelry
The perfect Old Hollywood, glamour dress! The sparkle and shape are something I hope we will be seeing a lot of!
Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry
I love the keyhole neck and think will be more prominent in dresses this year--Robin Roberts also wore one!-- and the embroidery on this makes me think of Lazaro
Zoe Saldana in Alexis Mabille Couture, Roger Vivier shoes, and Neil Lane jewelry
I’m enamored the pairing of die-cut flower with the belt- the child of industrial and feminine! And the ombré at the bottom!
Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta and Mouawad jewelry
The perfect princess gown, this could be a bridal gown in itself. I love the soft gray color and the texture on the skirt.
Naomi Watts in Armani Prive and Neil Lane jewelry
As more girls are wanting a different look than strapless, unique necklines/sleeves are definitely on my wedding radar.
And my WINNER for Overall Oscar Look:
Charlize Theoron in Dior Haute Couture and Harry Winston jewelry
How much can I gush about this look? The photograph below is doing it no justice- from the cropped cut to the structured peplum dress, she knocked it out of the park! Plus, how many people do you know that can pull of a WHITE white dress?
In all, I’m hoping that the Oscar trends that will influence wedding fashion are unique necklines, side swept hair, and more interesting backs (with necklaces a la Jennifer Lawrence!)
Just like many of my brides, these ladies will be changing into new dresses for the after parties- I know more inspiration will be coming from these next flirty frocks. It'll be fun to see how many of these designers' trends show up on their runways when they premiere their new collections during bridal fashion week!
Until next awards season!
