Oscars 2017 Fashion

Top trends and how to get them!

We’ve been all about trends on the blog recently, and we’re going to regale you with just one more week of them thanks to the Oscars! It is fashion’s biggest night, so you know we were watching and scouting out all of the top trends for you. Here’s what we caught:
Champagne taste – This celebratory color was all over the red carpet this year! From Nicole Kidman to Emma Stone, the top fashion darlings were popping the cork on this somewhat challenging color. As it’s a lighter color it can be tricky to wear, but if two of the least tan starlets can wear it, so can you! This trend definitely goes along with what we’re seeing in the bridal world, which is a move towards more neutral colored bridesmaids’ dresses. So chic!
Headbands – What girl doesn’t love a good headband? It’s such an easy way add some style and impact to your look. Janelle Monae, Salma Hayek, and more stars rocked this trend, and thanks to Flair’s accessories designers like AB Ellie and Mariell, you can too!

Navy tuxes – No, men, you’re not left out of this trend report! If your groom wants to be a little trendy while staying traditional, then a navy tuxedo may be the thing for him! Saying he wore the same thing as Matt Damon and Chris Evans doesn’t hurt either!
Long sleeves – Sleeves have been taking over the bridal world for the past couple of years, so yeah, you could say we’re ahead of this trend Jessica Biel and Ruth Negga were just two of the stars who were long on style with this trend!

Oscars 2015

Hits, Misses and Trends from the Red Carpet!

The Oscars is always a working night for the Flair girls. In a big group text, we discuss the fashion hits and misses, and we don’t always agree. In fact, more often than not, we all have completely different best dressed picks. Not to toot our own horn, but we think it’s one of the things that makes Flair great (toot toot!). No matter what your personal style, or the style of your wedding, there’s probably a Flair consultant who will totally get you! Now that we’re done patting ourselves on the back, we’ll get back to the Oscars 😉 There is one thing we can all agree upon; the red carpet was ripe with fresh, new trends! Here are some that we caught:

Radiant Red Carpet Reds – Some feel that wearing red on the red carpet can be dangerous. Will it clash, or even worse, will it just blend into the background? Not to mention the fact that red can be a tricky color to wear; you need just the right shade for your specific skin tone (as we all know from trying to find the perfect red lipstick – you can’t just borrow your friend’s). There were tons of gorgeous Oscar dresses that showed us it was worth the red risk, like Dakota Johnson’s Saint Laurent stunner. Men weren’t afraid of this bold color either, as seen on David Oyelowo’s gorgeous Dolce and Gabbana ensemble! If you don’t want to go all red, it makes a great accent color, from your lip, to your nails, to your belt (as seen on Nicole Kidman’s Louis Vuitton number).


Embellished Winter Whites – White dresses always have a presence on the red carpet, but this year they got amped up with stunning beads, pearls, sequins and more. Lupita’s Calvin Klein beauty features 6000 pearls and took many hours and many people to create; it’s a true one of a kind! Red gloves aside (though I guess they count for our red trend too) Lady Gaga’s Azzedine Alaia gown is perfect for the Oscar’s red carpet; it is true glamorous, over the top couture! And we just can’t get over how amazing Faith Hill looks in this J. Mendel, does she ever age??


KISS – Many celebrities got the memo to keep it simple in the hair and makeup department. From Anna Faris’ (in Zuhair Murad) loose waves, to Behati Prinsloo’s (in Armani Prive) sleek bun and Jenna Dewan Tatum’s (also in Zuhair Murad) simple but impactful pony, we loved seeing the stars looking so fresh!
