Oscar Parties. All the drama and glamour of the ceremony with a lot less pressure to “get it right.” There aren’t as many rules about what is “okay” to wear on the red carpet at the Oscar parties whether you are a nominee, presenter, or just a party guest. There can be a lot of pressure to make sure that a starlet wears when she is nominated for an Oscar is perfect because the images of her winning will be around forever. They will be re used every year from there on after in stories about previous winners. So we tend to see stars, espeically nominated ones, play it a little safer on the red carpet at the Oscars ceremony. Sometimes they change into something a little more fun for the red carpets at the after parties. -]=It honestly shocks me that we have never seen Bella Hadid on the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. This red carpet usually draws all of the biggest names in modeling in addition to film and Bella would definitely be able to bring the glam to this red carpet. For the most part she is one of my favorite models to see on the red carpet and I know that she would be able to deliver a look that could hang with the big Hollywood movie stars on this red carpet. This black sequin Michael Kors Fall 2019 RTW tea length later gown which features feather details near the knees literally just came down the New York Fashion Week runway yesterday and I would bet that stylists are fighting over who will get this dress (or any of the other dazzling disco styles that came down this runway) for their clients for Oscar week. I definitely think that Mimi Cuttrell could win out with the idea of putting this gown on Bella. It is in perfect step with the slinky and sexy take on glamour that we typically see from Bella on the red and if she paired with a sleek high pony, smokey eyes, red lips, a pair of black Aquazzura ‘Minimalist’ sandals, and vintage Bulgari diamond and emerald pendant drop earrings I know that this would be absolute glamour defined. Emma Stone is nominated for Best Supporting Actress at this years Oscars and while she isn’t likely to win I still want to see beautiful things from her. I don’t want to set my expectations too high because she will proably be in Louis Vuitton all night. She will definitely work a custom Louis Vuitton gown for the main show, and I have already designed it, but I want to see her step out of the brand for the Vanity Fair red carpet. It has been a hot second since we have seen Emma wear a Jason Wu design on the red carpet, but when I was looking for the perfect non LV gown for her to wear on this red carpet and I saw this navy bias cut gown which features a v-neckline, ruched details, semi sheer construction, and a feathered hem from the Jason Wu Collection Fall 2018 RTW presentation I knew that this gown would be perfect for Emma to wear on this red carpet. It is simple yet glamorous and I really do think that Emma has the effortless elegance to match the aura of this gown. As I usually say when creating non-Louis Vuitton looks for the brands ambassadors I wouldn’t keep the look completely devoid of the brand adding a black and silver ‘Petite Malle’ stamped metal box clutch, a pair of navy and silver ‘Silhouette’ sandals, and a pair of diamond and sapphire ‘Crown’ high jewelry drop earrings all from Louis Vuitton. Old Hollywood waves, navy glitter smokey eyes, and bold red lips would add the perfect finishing touches to this look for Emma. Kate Bosworth has given us soft feminine princess moments on the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar party the last three years wearing creations from Dior Couture, J. Mendel, and Ralph & Russo Couture. I want to keep the big ballgown this year, but give more of a femme fatale twist so when I saw this black and white Prabal Gurung Fall 2019 RTW ball gown which features a ruffled v-neckline come down the runway while switching between the livestream of this and the Grammy’s red carpet on Sunday night I knew I had found the perfect gown for her to wear. This was a gasp moment and I knew that it will definitely be an absolutely statuesque glam moment on Kate especially if she pairs the gown with a black Roger Vivier ‘Boite De Nuit Maharaja’ feather and crystal embellished box clutch, a sleek updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black Roger Vivier ‘Hotfix’ crustal embellished satin sandals, and dazzling Kwiat ‘Starry Night’ diamond chandelier earrings. We will definitely see Lucy Boynton give us two looks next weekend at the Oscars. She will for sure be on the arm of her nominated Bohemian Rhapsody co-star/boyfriend Rami Malek has he most likely wins an Oscar for Best Actor and then I’m expecting her to quick change for the red carpet at the Vanity Fair party after the telecast. I haven’t picked out her ceremony gown yet, but for the Vanity Fair red carpet I want to see Lucy give us bold bohemian style with this red Rodarte Fall 2019 RTW Chantilly lace tea length gown which features glitter embellishments, a bow on the waist, an an A-line silhouette with a V-neckline layered over a sheer panel. I think that this gown is the perfect meshing of elegance and glamour and that is exactly what I expect from Lucy on the red carpet. A romantic updo, defined eyes, red lips, a red satin Prada box clutch, a pair of red Prada strappy sandals, and vintage Cartier diamond ribbon cluster earrings would add the perfect finishing touches to make this an absolutely beautiful moment for Lucy. Tessa Thompson will present at the Oscars for the first time next weekend and when I saw her name on the list of presenters I got really excited. I had already expected her to attend the Vanity Fair Oscar party because she is one of the stars on the cover of this years Vanity Fair Hollywood issue. But my expectations got a little bigger when I heard she would be presenting at the main show too. She just sat front row at the Chanel Spring 2019 Couture show in Paris last month and I am almost expecting that for her first Oscar night that she will have her first Chanel Couture moment on the red carpet. I fell in love with this black and gold 3D floral embellished Chanel Spring 2019 Couture cocktail dress which features dramatic tulle shoulders and hem and side cutouts the moment I saw it and Oscar night was definitely where I expected to see this dress on the red carpet. I think that Tessa has the edge and presence to really make this couture confection work on the red carpet. The only thing that might stop this dress from being worn on Oscar night is the fact that Margot Robbie, a face of Chanel, wore a similar gown from this collection to the BAFTA Awards this past weekend. Even given the fact that Margot just wore a similar gown this is exactly what I think that Tessa should wear for the Vanity Fair party red carpet. The look would be perfectly completed with a sleek pulled back low bun, smokey eyes, rose pink lips, a vintage gold Chanel pearl tassel minaudiere, a pair of black Aquazzura ‘Magic’ strappy PVC detail pointed toe pumps, and Hueb gold and diamond ‘Tribal’ starburst cluster earrings.
The Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party and the Vanity Fair Oscar Party will take place on Sunday February 24, 2019.
