Inspiring Bridal Looks from 2015 Award Season: Red Carpet Fashion From Hollywood’s Hottest Bunch
When it comes to the annual fashion forecast, nothing sets the tone quite like award season. Each year, the red carpet is rolled out, Hollywood’s hottest are dressed in their black tie best, and we’re glued to the screen taking notes on the latest trends. As the most formal affair of the year, The Academy Awards undoubtedly inspires bridal fashion. Brides-to-be often look to the stars for inspiration before choosing their dream dress. This year, we were swooning over the absolutely stunning gowns that graced the red carpet. Some of our favorite celebs kept it classic with timeless gowns, while others pushed the limits and opted for edgier looks. As we kick-off wedding season, we’re looking back at some of the most noteworthy trends and our favorite looks from the Oscars.
Appropriately enough, one of the biggest trends on the red carpet this year was white! Aisle-worthy white dresses embellished the evening. Beyond the bridal hue, many leading ladies decided to take the plunge this year. We’re referring to plunging necklines, of course. Many of you may have noticed that embellishments were also a huge red carpet trend. From sparkly beads and sequins to textured details, many Oscar gowns were embellished to perfection! On the darker side, we saw deep shades of lipstick that created a stylish contrast with the popular blush and white gowns chosen for the evening. Which trend would you consider for your wedding day? Would you step outside the box and opt for dark lipstick on your special day? The fashion compass is pointing in a plunging, embellished, and romantic direction. We can expect to see many bridal gowns reflecting these gorgeous trends through the spring, summer and fall. Not only will we see these looks in bridal fashion, but many brides-to-be will consider these red carpet moments when shopping for bridesmaid dresses, as well! Here are our top three favorite looks from the stylish Academy Awards.
We’re starting the list with Jennifer Lopez in this breathtaking Elie Saab gown. The always stylish and trendsetting star created buzz the second she arrived in this timeless piece. We love how she opted for a classic ball gown, but still made sure she showed a little skin with a plunging neckline. We’re obsessing over ever details of this dress, including the dreamy fabric, romantic hue, and of course, glistening embellishments! Wouldn’t
this make the perfect bridal gown?
Another Elie Saab gown for the win! Emma Stone was absolutely striking in this vibrant yellow gown. The high-slit and sheer panels contrasted perfectly with the high neckline and long sleeves of the dress. Would you consider a slit like this for your big day? We love the idea of a bridal gown with sheer long sleeves…so classic! This silhouette is a sweet and sexy choice for the bride-to-be who is looking for something more form fitting than a ball gown.
Last, but certainly not least, we’ve chosen the always lovely Jennifer Aniston in Versace. She doesn’t ever seem to age, does she? Jennifer’s dress will catch the eye of brides-to-be who are looking to achieve a sexier look for their big day. This glistening gown pushed the limits in more ways than one with a body-hugging silhouette, sheer panels, a sexy slit, and a strapless neckline.
No matter what style fits your unique taste, we hope our red carpet picks will bring you inspiration, and help make saying yes to the dress even sweeter. Cheers to finding your dream gown!
