A number of trends graced the 86th Annual Academy Awards red carpet this past weekend. One of the biggest trends at the Oscars came from two network hosts who covered the red carpet, Maria Menounos (Access Hollywood) and Kelly Osbourne (E! Live From the Red Carpet). Regardless of the rain that attempted to make it's own appearance throughout the beginning of the show, Winter White accented with Metallics was a constant theme throughout the show amplified by these hosts for their network shows.
Maria looked stunning in her winter white gown that in addition to having metallic accents, had an exposed back, cap sleeves that are embellished and train which was stunning for this Johanna Johnson dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, Ashlyn’d bag, Jack Vartanian earrings, and Dove, Demarco, and Le Vian rings.
Kelly Osbourne is wearing a Badgley Mischka dress, Judith Leiber bag, Solange from LoveGold jewelry, and Aldo shoes. The best feature of her dress is that the overlay is really the signature portion of her dress without a doubt.
When watching red carpet looks, it's a great form of inspiration for your red carpet moment OR how to translate elements of the look to other glam affairs that you're going to that may not be such a black tie moment. With that said, being an accessory focused site, the merge of fashion utilizing elements of metallics creates a great canvas for an accessorized look that begs for more accessories to be included within this work of art. For upcoming parties on rooftops, lofts and more, taking white and metallic into shorter looks is a natural progression for your style. These dresses showcase the perfect looks to think about for your stunning moment to enhance your closet, showcase fabulous skin and more. Mark & Estel is known for their phenomenal knit Malibu and Bohemian chic collections; however, they also have a collection that is edgy and full of drama for those times when you want to show out and to have all eyes son you.

The silver metallic adds an edgier look. Within the panel to the left, the model has on the Zipper Sweatshirt Dress which is made of Cotton French Terry and has paired this with a Snakeskin Cuff by Avant Garde (who had a number of their accessories integrated within this show). The tunic style paired with the diagonal zipper adds great visual texture. This is perfect for an opening, gallery or listening party. The Little White Dress with edge is personified in this Triangle Crystal Dress which is made of silk with crystal detail and has draping as well as the triangle detailing on the arm. This is perfect to wear to a brunch with the girls, a chic wedding or for personal appearances. Finally, for the LA and Miami girl who is enjoying a rooftop party and will then move on to other events but wants to keep it super easy, this layered look is phenomenal and the epitome of effortless chic. The Linen Shirt Dress is such a staple as it has extended long sleeves and is made of linen jersey (this can be layered with a bralette and tap shorts/boyfriend shorts). To add weight to this look, it is paired with Chain Layered Choker and a Circle Drip Necklace which are both in silver.
