These are my TOP TEN picks for Best Dressed from the 2017 Oscars Red Carpet!
Jessica Biel in Kaufman Franco
Jessica is serving up Oscar statuesque realness head to toe in this fitted Kaufman Franco dress. It is the perfect fit for her figure and her statement necklace sets the entire look completely off!
Janelle Monae in Elie Saab Fall 2016
It’s no secret that Ms. Monae has been habitually setting red carpets on FIRE lately. This Elie Saab creation looks great on her from the mesh top with beautiful, strategically placed applique really makes this look unique.
Viola Davis in Armani Prive
And the WINNER IS…. MISS VIOLA DAVIS in Armani! The red fabric against her chocolate skin is just the right contrast. Her short haircut, with the halter neck and draping shoulders are the perfect combination. Fitted with a train is ALWAYS a winner in my book. Congrats Viola!
Robin Roberts in Badgley Mischka
Gold at the Oscars is a right of passage for most celebs. Robin Roberts AND her Booty did Badgley Mischka proud in this sequined number.
Chrissy Teigen in Zuhair Murad Spring 2017 Couture
With each Red Carpet moment, Mrs. Legend is fast becoming just that A Fashion LEGEND. This Zuhair Murad design was perfect for her long limbs and lean frame. You can’t go wrong with a dramatic split and legs for days!
Taraji P. Henson in Alberta Ferretti
It’s “Miss Henson” when she’s SLAYING 🙂 Taraji is giving us Old Black Hollywood Glamour in this floor length velvet gown, statement making diamonds on her neck with a split and train in tow…. YASSS!
Zuri Hall in Uel Camilo
Fellow Ohioan and E! News correspondent, Zuri Hall gave me life in Lilac. From top to bottom, this Uel Camilo gown was just right on her. The slightly risque, fitted sheer top accompanied with the full bottom with train was a great balance.
Hailee Steinfeld in Ralph and Russo Spring 2017 Couture
Ralph and Russo never disappoints. This design powerhouse brings out the ethereal beauty in anyone who wears the label. Hailee looks simply perfect in this barely there, hand-painted gown with floral embellishments.
Mahershala Ali in Ermenegildo Zegna Couture
When gambling, the #1 rule to Winning BIG is…Always bet on black! Detail and texture are very important when choosing a monochromatic look like Mr. Ali is rocking. The black and white checkered pocket square set off the total look with the black tux, shirt and bow tie.
Emma Stone in Givenchy
Emma was also a winner on and off the red carpet in Givenchy. This custom, handmade embroidered lace gown was embellished with Swarovski Crystals. It was made by a total 11 people over 1750 hours.
