And The Award Goes To..

This may be the first and last time you see me write about award ceremony style; usually I'm more interested in what Oscar de la Renta is up to rather than the Oscars. There is much hype surrounding the dresses, which actress is wearing which designer, did they get it right or wrong. Controversially, it all looks wrong to me - actresses are forced into toeing the line between safe and sharp, which comes across as forced and old-fashioned.

Despite my opinions I had to take a quick peek at the line-up (I wouldn't wish to be without conversation with my fellow womankind for the next week) and was pleasantly surprised to find a look which I think works perfectly for a young, hot actress.

Judy Greer in Monique Lhuillier is sporty, luxurious, and on-trend, with simple yet effective details (I love the full-length exposed zip and racer-style shoulders). It's a dress that translates well to reality, too: shorten the hemline or swap the sequins for metallic fabric for the perfect party dress. 

I would have loved to see her fash this look up a little with a slicked-back ponytail and dark, smudgy eye but maybe this would be a touch risky for the Academy Awards. I am in no way biased as I hadn't heard of Greer before and haven't knowingly seen her act in anything; I just wanted to give to kudos for trying out an edgy dress on traditionally stuffy red carpet.

  1. Hi dear. This is what awards ceremony?

  2. I know what you mean...Oscars are not really my forte either. But Greer certainly looks amazing here!
