Freida Pinto In Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna & Elie Saab – 2017 Oscar Parties

Freida Pinto’s pre-Oscars looks at the Women in Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party and the Film Independent Spirit Awards has us worried, but things took a better turn for the Oscar parties on Sunday (February 26).

Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Academy Awards Viewing Party: The Indian actress started her night wearing a Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna embellished gown. I love the pop of colour via the fringed Corto Moltedo clutch and the sassy sandals. This made me breath a sign of relief that she’s back on the right track.

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: The good times continued to roll with this Elie Saab gown. The dolphin-blue hue is breath-taking, the slit was tantalising and the accessories including Jimmy Choo ‘Minny’ sandals, added a golden touch.

Was this a return to form for Freida? Or are you still not impressed with her current red carpet style?

Meryl Streep In Elie Saab Couture – 2017 Oscars

Meryl Streep attended the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California.

Known for what can be a quirkier red-carpet aesthetic, she chose both a gown and pants in a custom Elie Saab Couture embellished design that was rendered in a deep teal hue.

Dramatic in both silhouette and colour, she reflected the monochromatic look in her perfectly matched Charlotte Olympia clutch and Fred Leighton jewels.

Did you like her fashionable fusion of dress and trousers?

Janelle Monae In Elie Saab Couture – 2017 Oscars

As we expected, Janelle Monae made a grand entrance at the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California.

Channeling the metallic mood she set at the Pre-Oscar Awards dinner, she wore an Elie Saab Fall 2016 Couture masterwork accessorized with Forevermark Diamonds.

Brimming with the intricacy of sparkling embellishment, a period silhouette, and a flock of the most fashionable birds, the gown took flight with all the drama we’d anticipate from Janelle, but with an all-new spirit that stepped outside her graphic, black-and-white box.

She even skipped her signature red lip and styled her hair into a precious, Jennifer Behr headband-topped pixie for another layer of fresh intrigue.

This could have translated as a heavy, overly wrought look but she commanded it with such lightness of form.

It took my breath away.

Laura Dern & Paz Vega In Elie Saab – Bvlgari Pre-Oscar Dinner

Laura Dern and Paz Vega both wore Elie Saab while attending Bulgari’s Pre-Oscar Dinner at Chateau Marmont on Saturday (February 25) in Hollywood.

While their styles couldn’t be more different, each possessed their own natural radiance and feminine energy.

Laura Dern: The actress was a vision in floral lace, this sleeveless dress cuts a maxi silhouette. Genteel and well-mannered in its appearance, the styling was kept to a minimum.

Paz Vega: Without any classic traits of Elie Saab – lace, bling, big ballgown – Paz’s jumpsuit presents a more modern alternative to the norm. Her supersize vision of Elie Saab glamour didn’t veer too left of the runway styling.

Rita Ora In Elie Saab – Pre-GRAMMY Gala

Rita Ora put on the glitz for the Pre-GRAMMY Gala on Saturday (February 11) in LA.

Saying no-way to a gown, she shimmied out an Elie Saab Spring 2017 sheer, backless jumpsuit with all-over beaded fringe.

Topped off with a smoky eye and nude lip, Rita ensured the look had enough of a smoldering quality to go with its disco dance party spirit.

If her entrance is causing a bit of déjà vu, as it did for me, it’s probably because you’re remembering Blake Lively’s similar mini dress version of this jumpsuit from January.
