It’s your own fashion cheat sheet!
Nicole Kidman’s Chartreuse Christian Dior Dress (1995)
This classy dress is fantastic because it’s fun but still elegant. The bright pop of color makes a real impact without overwhelming Nicole. You can try this at home with a bright colored dress.
Maggie Gyllenhall’s Blue Print Dries van Noten Dress (2010)
Just because you’re wearing a fancy dress doesn’t mean it has to be a solid color. This unique and lovely pick was playful yet fun and certainly kept all eyes on Maggie. So, take that printed frock back out of your closet and wear it to your next party.
Julia Roberts’s Vintage Valentino Dress (2001)
The 2001 Oscars were all about Julia Roberts from her hair to her Oscar win to her classic beautiful dress. This black dress with white insets gave Julia a real old Hollywood glamour but she paired it with modern accessories to keep it fun and up to date. This old and new combination will work for most of your outfits as well.
Halle Berry’s Brown Ellie Saab Dress (2002)
When Halle decided on this dress she really took a chance. The sheer top is sophisticated and daring. Don’t be afraid to try sheer; just look to Halle for inspiration.
Celine Dion’s White Christian Dior Pants Suit (1999)
You might think it’s strange for women to wear pants or even a pantsuit for the Oscars, but Celine really nailed this look. It is understated, sharp and different. If dresses really aren’t your thing, consider a suit.
