Mode Mondays ~ Oscar Red Carpet 2015 Arrivals

Last night the stars hit the red carpet with a return to glamour and a thankfulness (as seen by acceptance speeches) for their families and those that were outside of the industry who lent a hand to their fame. As the carpets cleared, it was easy to state that neutral tones (blush, white, nude, etc) dominated the carpet and of course red made itself known and was worn well!

Gone Girl's, Rosamund Pike wore Givenchy in a bold red (which was perfect for her bold character from the movie) and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Jennifer Lopez wore a stunning and princess like dress by Elie Saab. I must say that this is one of the best monochromatic looks (in terms of skin hue matching the material of a garment), that I have seen in awhile. Her look is accessorized with a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch, Neil Lane Jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. David Oyelowo wore <a href=http://www.dolceandgabana.com" target="new">Dolce & Gabana</a> in his red tux which definitely is a way for a man to buck the trend of the classic black (or now blue) suit. His look was accented by Jimmy Choo and studs and cufflinks by Kwiat.

Style Sundays ~ Oscar Nominees, Predictions & Winners, 2015

And just like that, Awards Season is coming to a close with one of the most major shows, The Academy Awards taking place with winners receiving the Oscar! I will be tweeting beginning at 2pm EST via @AccessoryExpert (you will also see coverage on my Instagram account as well) to talk all things Oscars! Prior to 4pm, I'll share a number of finds from Hollywood's biggest night and then from 4pm - 6pm we will talk about what dresses and looks we can expect our favorites to wear as well as what we loved last year, we'll share our favorite looks from 6pm - 8pm and an looks that were missed will be tweeted from 8pm to the close of the show and to wrap it all up for one hour after the show we'll have final thoughts! Throughout Awards Season you have joined me in talking about the fashions, what was worn or could have been worn.


During today's tweet up, you will hear more about this as well as about one of my clients that I styled (via my co-founded styling house, Accessory2) today as she is the Social Media Correspondent for Access Hollywood as well as Vanity Fair's After Party. End Awards Season by joining in on the fun as I tweet via our Style Tweetup with fellow industry, experts and brands with the hashtag #TheEdit as well as #TheEditOscars.


The Academy Awards has great nominees that are up tonight so you can follow along and this will be updated throughout the show, with actual winners but for now this is who I predict will take home tonight's awards! It definitely is a tough one this year as this is one of the first years that I wish multiple people could win an award within the same category.

Items in bold pink are winners, Items that are in bold pink italics are winners who I predicted correctly and italicized nominees are those that we predicted but didn't win the nomination.

Treasure Tuesdays ~ 3 Best Dressed From The Met Gala 2014

Costume Institute Met Gala 2014 Charlize Theron Sean Penn Alicia Quarles Donatella Versace Metropolitan Museum Charles James Beyond Fashion Anna Wintour

Last night, The Met Gala took place at the Metropolitan Museum to kick off the Charles James: Beyond Fashion exhibit which is available to the public May 8th - August 10th. This year's theme for Anna Wintour's ball was all about gowns and looking amazingly glamourous. My 3 favorite looks from the red carpet (although there were a number of fabulous ones) came from E! News' correspondent Alicia Quarles, Donatella Versace and the number one look (as well as duo) Charlize Theron and her beau Sean Penn.

Donatella Versace appeared on the red carpet in a decadent green gown with golden embellishment from a design from her own house, Versace. Another favorite comes from Alicia Quarles who always looks amazing whether she is on the streets of NYC or on the red carpet. Last night she donned a stunning navy Zac Posen gown. She accessorized her look with a Rafe clutch, J/Hadley ring and Sergio Rossi shoes. Once again (as she did at the Oscars this year) Charlize Theron, she stunned in Dior Haute Couture a body shaping white crepe gown with navy and black satin incrustations. She also paired the look with a Dior black wool jacket and Dior clutch.

Throughout this week, we have shared a number of looks that were hits on the 86th Annual Academy Awards red carpet to support their community during the Oscars. Scandal's Olivia Pope, played by Kerry Washington and model, Coco Rocha from the first season of Oxygen's, The Face (which just started its second season). Both ladies stunned in rich purple hues that looked amazing.

Kerry Washington, who presented an award that evening, stunned in a purple Jason Wu gown that was figure flattering and showed her baby bump. To accent her gorgeous outfit, she wore Jennifer Meyer jewels, Christian Louboutin shoes, and a Judith Leiber clutch.

You can capture a bit of her stunning look by getting a similar bracelet with Forever Brilliant by Charles and Colvard, Piers Bracelet.

A day or two prior to the Oscars, those following Coco Rocha saw that she was debating between 3 gowns designed by Zac Posen to wear. She opted for this purple number as she was on CNN talking style; moreover, her ornate jewelry was absolutely stunning. Although there will be an update on what her accessories are, this look can be recreated easily.

You can get her look with Eli Halili's stunning earrings and bracelet which bring a golden goddess look.

Wearable Wednesdays ~ Amy Adams Oscars Red Carpet

Amy Adams Oscars Red Carpet Academy Award Nominee American Hustle Supporting Actress

Academy Award Nominee Amy Adams, is an actress that continues to stretch her capabilities in a number of her roles. Although she didn't win an Oscar for Best Leading Actress in American Hustle, she absolutely stunned on the red carpet. During her interview on E!'s Live From the Red Carpet, she shared that this ceremony within Awards Season, she dressed for herself. Her look was regal and showcased her complexion, hair color and the confidence that has continued to grow over the duration of this season's awards shows.

This stunning dark navy Gucci Premiere gown. Amy has the physique to showcase this column dress which actually could be problematic for a number of body types. Amy's look harkened back to Old Hollywood Glamour and presented herself as a curvier version of herself due to the peplum at the hip which created an illusion of an enhanced hour glass. In addition, the flaps on her chest created a bustier look that was extremely flattering. The small train added to the regal nature of the look and made her look like a dominant figure. on her big night.

With such an elegant look, she paired this gown with Christian Louboutin shoes, and a Tiffany & Co. clutch and jewelry. Amy's earrings are absolutely stunning as they included rhodochrosite, lapis and turquoise earrings with diamonds in 18-karat yellow gold valued at $35,000. She also wore a $1.4 million yellow diamond bracelet which was in 18-karat yellow gold.

With a simple french twist and phenomenal makeup, she looked like a classic beauty and stood out from a number of looks that also appeared on the carpet. You can get the look that was created by Celebrity Makeup artist, Stephen Sollitto who used Laura Mercier to get her flawless look. He wanted to create a sophisticated look that matched her ensemble. On Thursday, we'll showcase how we got a fabulous Oscar look using these products as well.


Sollitto prepared Adams’ skin using RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream ($195). He stated, “I always moisturize with this product. This is the line I use on myself every day. Prepping the skin is just as important as the makeup you use.”


Sollitto applied Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide (NEW - Coming Fall 2014) to create a flawless complexion. He noted, “This foundation is simple to apply with a wet sponge or your fingers. It's long wear, oil free and lightweight. In the end it gives you a matte finish so you don't have to dust your face with loose powder, it's built in.”



Sollitto applied Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Terracotta ($24) to Adams’ lids and contrasted the look by applying Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Black Karat ($24) under the star’s bottom lashes.</i>

To keep Adam’s eyes looking ”bright,” Sollitto dotted his “ideal champagne shade,” Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sugar Frost ($26) to the inner corners of Adams’ eyes.


He applied Nars Eye Paint Liner in Tatar ($25) along the star’s upper lash line to make them “pop.”

To finish, he applied Dior Black Out Mascara ($25) to Adams’ lashes.


Sollitto applied the perfect “spring-like blush,” Tom Ford Beauty Cheek Color in Ravish ($56) to create a look “that was flush with color.”


Sollitto noted that he wanted to achieve a lip look that was “pretty, a little bit rosy and glossy.” He used Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour in Cozy ($25) which he described as “having the perfect punch I was looking for.” He then layered Tom Ford Beauty Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Rose Crush ($45) over it “for a bit of glamour to match the day.”
