The 2016 Oscars aired last night, but I didn’t watch much of it (I caught a bit of Emmanuel Lubezki, The Revenant, winning his 3rd Cinematography Oscar in a row, and Jenny Beavan, Mad Max: Fury Road, winning what must be yet another Costume Design Oscar) and chose to finish off Season 2 of Breaking Bad, instead—yes, I’m quite behind on my TV watching!
That said, I’m also incredibly behind on my movie-watching: having a toddler means I’ve basically seen two whole movies in the cinema all last year (The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and Spectre), and the only other Oscar-nominated films I’ve seen were Mad Max: Fury Road and Inside Out, and I fell asleep half an hour into the latter. I do have Ex Machina in my Netflix queue, I guess. Is Alicia Vikander in every movie I want to see?
This morning, however, I spent a little time checking out the Oscar dresses—because that’s obviously the best part for us muckety-mucks—and was not disappointed!
Here’s a selection of colorful dresses and matching nail polishes I found—sorry, I didn’t include some lovely black (Jennifer Lawrence in Dior, Julianne Moore in Chanel), white (Rooney Mara in Givenchy, Priyanka Chopra in Zuhair Murad, Lady Gaga in Brandon Maxwell) and primary red (Charlize Theron in Dior, Jared Leto in Gucci) ensembles, simply because those polish colors are a dime-a-dozen.
My favorite looks from the night were worn by Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts, Saoirse Ronan, and Margot Robbie.
[Edit: 2016-03-01] I’m also going to sneak Tina Fey in here, since Stash Matters pointed her beautiful gown out to me in the comments! Stunning.
Which dress was your favorite from last night?
