The 87th Academy Award ceremony took place in Los Angeles yesterday. It is always an awaited event, not only because of the awards themselves but also for the Fashion. This year though, I have to say that I was a bit disappointed because I did not see a lot of great looks : great dresses with wrong accessories, great dresses with wrong makeup, great dress for the wrong body shape.... A perfect look is a whole, make up (of course) included.
Check my best & worst pick below.
Jennifer Lopez : she was almost perfect...except for the makeup!
Jennifer Lopez did look like a princess in this ravishing Elie Saab nude dress. I love the fact that see mostly wear Lebanese designer dresses (and they are the best after all...) but also that the color matches her skin tone perfectly. The hair was perfect too, allowing her neckline to be shown. However, looking closely at her, I suddenly got very disappointed...
I hate to say it, but the make-up is just not right! Don't get me wrong, J-Lo always looks beautiful, but that baby pink lips with the warm/coraly eyes was wrong. The lips don't match at all with the eyes nor the dress. I wished she kept her traditional nude/beige lips or did something like strong red/bordeaux lips. This is the perfect exemple on how makeup can ruin a look...
Emma Stone : Bold & Fabulous!
Emma Stone is funny, sweet and really gorgeous. She has her own style that fits her amazing personality. I loved that she did a really bold color being a fair girl. This custom-made green dress by Elie Saab (again) was a great pick for the red-head actress.
Her makeup was flawless too. She chosed to pair the bright green dress with black eyeliner, false lashes and coral lips. I loved the fact that she wore Coral and not red (too bright with the bright dress) or nude (too boring or safe). This girl is playful and her look always follow! The makeup artist is said to have used Chanel Lip Liner in Rouge to slighly fill the lips topped with the Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in Tulip.
Solange Knowles : Hell to the NO!
Did Solange Knowles look at her outfil before heading to the ceremony? She literally ended up wearing the red carpet. This Christian Siriano outfit (I honestly don't know how to call it) just looked floppy, hiding her beautiful curves. Even the frabric looked cheap! I just hate it.
The hair and makeup were quite disappointing too. An updo would have been more appropriate with this high-neck, especially since Solange has beautiful features. The dress is already so overpowering, it did not need a smokey eyes AND red lipstick AND hair down. This only managed to worsened the look.
Margot Robbie : PERFECTION
This girl is drop dead gorgeous, no one can deny that but that night she reached perfection. The Australian beauty managed to wear a black dress and turn it into a great non-boring look. The dress was from Yves Saint-laurent paired with a vintage Van Cleef & Arpels necklace. She completely embodied the YSL style, elegant, sexy and sophisticated. She made me think like she stepped out an ad for the YSL perfume Opium... (I know, I have a lot of imagination).
This whole look was perfected by this beautiful hair and makeup: sleek long bob, lots of mascara and a red-orange lipstick. If you wish to copy this look, you should know that Margot wore the Hourglass Liquid Lipstick in Raven but if Hourglass is not available in your country, you can still use YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Le Orange #13.
One word : PERFECTION!
