From the red carpet to the wedding aisle!
We love, love, love the Oscars; it truly is the fashion world’s Superbowl! All of the Flair girls were texting throughout the night; we live for the red carpet and couldn’t wait to see what trends would pop up. Here’s what we caught:
1) Metallics: Cate, Angelina, Jenna, Kate…the list goes on and on! Gowns with metallic details were HUGE on the red carpet, and why not? Metallic shades are timeless and tend to be pretty flattering, plus they look amazing amongst all of those flash bulbs! Did you catch the metallic thread detail in Lupita’s skirt? Subtle and gorgeous! You can achieve the metallic look at Flair with Jenny Yoo’s Hudson and Harlow dresses. These gorgeous lace dresses have metallic threading that is sure to pop in all of your photos; stunning!
2) Soft colors: OK, we are fully patting ourselves on the back with this one. Soft colors have been popular in the bridesmaids’ world for a few seasons now; we’re ahead of the trend! Most people are concerned about soft colors being flattering on all skin tones, but the red carpet was perfect evidence that they can be! Kristen Bell, Penelope Cruz, Jada Pinkett Smith, Camila Alvez and Cate Blanchett all wore soft, neutral shades and they have completely different skin tones. So, don’t be afraid of a neutral color palette, it creates such romantic and elegant photos! Case in point: Lynn Lugo’s photo shoot for the 2014 season was chock full of gorgeous soft colors that you can get at Flair!
We could go on and on, but we’ll wrap it up with a quick list of the other trends we spotted: Navy tuxes for the men, art deco inspired bags and jewelry, black dresses (which are usually avoided on the red carpet), nude nails, headbands (OK, there was only one but it was epic!), soft makeup and swept back hair. There’s something for everyone!
We had so much fun this awards show season, and we’re so excited that the bridal world is on trend with the red carpet. Can’t wait for next season :)
XOXO from your red carpet reporters,
Stacey, Jaime, Madison, Joy, Hilleary and Lindsay
