Red Carpet Wrap-Up

Oh, the Oscars! We watch for the awards and the speeches, but let’s face it, we also watch for the fashion. And because what we see on the red carpet may very well indicate what we wear to upcoming Mitzvahs, we think a Mitzvah style Red Carpet Wrap-Up is in order.

To help us get a handle on what was hot and was not at last night’s Academy Awards, we have enlisted the help of Colin Megaro, fashion stylist and founder of Planet Style Concierge. Colin attended last night’s APLA’s Oscar Viewing Party, the 8th annual “The Envelope Please” event, which was hosted by Jennifer Love Hewitt. He sent us his thoughts via Blackberry. (Oh we love technology!)

“The trends this year were off the shoulder, metallic, ruffled and full of sex appeal,” Colin reports from Los Angeles. He felt that the winning looks were brought to us by the following celebs. He has given us his Cliff Notes on why they were the best dressed of the evening:

Robin Roberts Oscar Dress

Robin Roberts hosted ABC’s red carpet pre-show

Robin Roberts – Survived cancer and looks amazing in a J Crew coral gown.
Freida Pinto – Brought light to India cinema with Slumdog Millionaire.  Loved her cobalt blue beaded gown.
Penelope Cruz – The perfect elegant princess.
Beyonce Knowles – Another mermaid gown done flawlessly.

Colin reminds us of why we should pay attention: “The dresses seen at the Academy Awards are about to be copied and worn to events around the world,” he says. Maybe these styles – jewel tones, one-shoulder gowns and full skirts – will be worn to a Mitzvah near you!
