Runway To Red Carpet – Marion Cotillard In Jean Paul Gaultier


Oscar winner, Marion Cotillard wore this mermaid-esqe Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2008 Couture gown to the Oscars on Sunday night, which appeared on many Best Dressed list including mine.

Only she could pulled off this amazing mermaid-style gown, which was custom-made for her. Thank god she did not choose the runway version, as I don’t think it would have made the same impact.

It’s was the second red-carpet event in a fortnight that not only did Marion Cotillard win the Best Actress award, but also the second time she opted for a pale shade.

At the BAFTA’s she shined in a fabulous ivory and silver embellished Chanel Fall 2007 Couture dress.

Marion has been supporting French designers by wearing Jean Paul Gaultier to the Cesar Film Awards, Nina Ricci to the SAG Awards and Chanel to the London Film Critics’ Circle Awards and to the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards.

Hopefully it won’t be long before we see her a YSL, Christian Lacroix or Balenciaga creation. I am sure they are queuing up to offer her their clothes.

Has a style icon is born? No she has been an icon for a while, it’s only now that everyone has noticed.

Oscar 2008 Trends – Ladies In Red


It was great to see lots of colour at this years Oscars.

Red was a surprising choice with many celebrities, which was great to see as that meant the ladies were willing to stand out and take a risk with this bold colour.

I guess they took their inspiration from Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga dress from last years Oscars.

All these woman look fantastic in shades varying from scarlet, to vermillion to crimson and Ruby.

Oscar 2008 Trends – One-Shoulder Gowns


Whilst most of the ladies wearing one-shouldered gowns rested on their right hand shoulders, Hilary Swanks dress stood out amongst the trend by resting on her left shoulder.

Diane Lane, Anne Hathaway and Hilary Swanks gowns were all beautiful embellished with beads and rosettes.

Oscar 2008 Trends – Black Magic



Black on the red carpet can tend to be a bit boring, as it is considered the “safe” option.

Tilda Swinton on armed Lanvin dress, Hilary Swank embellished Versace dress, Penelope Cruz’ Chanel feathered dress and Kristin Chenoweth rose underly Armani Prive dresses were not “safe”options, but Ellen Page and Lauren Linney’s were.

Oscar 2008 Trends – Strapless




Despite the rain, most of the women on the red carpet went strapless at the Oscars.

Kristin Chenoweth was by far my favourite with the sexy sweetheart neckline, but Cameron Diaz, Keisha Whitaker, Penelople Cruz and Renee Zellweger all looked amazing.
