ACADEMY AWARDS 2015: AND THE WINNER IS…

And so it finally happened – the biggest night in awards season took place last night and after all the huffing and puffing we eventually wound up with some spectacular red carpet fashion choices! The 87th Annual Academy Awards  marked the end of a long and often treacherous awards season that had its fair share of dreary dresses and WHAT THE ACTUALS? But there is a light at the end of that dark fashion don’ts tunnel, and that light shone bright last night.

Don’t get too excited, there is MUH-HOST DEFS a red carpet rant in the wings; but for now let us revel in the wows and yesses and the oh-my-goodness-she-finally-got-it-rights!

No surprise as to the night’s biggest winners in terms of who took home little golden men; but I am happy to report that some of this season’s worst dressed pulled their shit together (or hired new stylists) and NAILED it. I’m looking at you, Rosamund Pike.

The Oscars stuck to a colour palette of mostly monochrome, sparkles and nudes, with a few stars going for bold and bright primary colours: trends that echo the entire season and are a surefire sign of what’s to come in department stores and local lookbooks in the coming months.

So here we go, the end of the journey and my penultimate post for the 2015 Awards Show series: the best dressed at the 87th Academy Awards.

Let me know your thoughts and if you like what you see here, don’t be afraid to hit that follow button! There is so much in store for Haute Hoodlum this year, you really don’t want to miss out (plus I literally get funnier every day).

the couple that wears McQueen together, stays together.

 

that is the look of a winner. also, it doesn't hurt that Eddie is wearing bespoke Alexander McQueen (as did his new wife).

a navy suit is such a great alternative to the usual black and white palette men stick to. WOOP GO ANSEL WHATEVER YOUR NAME IS.
