It’s that time again! Every year since 1929, Hollywood stars spend weeks running on treadmills, getting overpriced spa treatments, and finally being primped and plucked by their “glam squad”, all to answer the 64-million-dollar question “Who are you wearing?!” Oh, and to possibly take home an Oscar.
This year’s Academy Awards, AKA “the Oscars”, were no exception. Celebrities rocked the red carpet wearing looks from A-list designers such as Monique Lhuillier, Jimmy Choo, and Alexander McQueen. After all, nobody gives a damn if they win the Academy Award; the real accomplishment is to land on the coveted “Best Dressed” list!
And there were plenty of curves on that list, thank you very much. Especially Gabourey Sidibe who, thank God, did not have a repeat of her Golden Globes debacle. Gabourey even inspired Gwynnie Bee, the subscription-based fashion service for curvy women, to feature her magnificent magenta dress in their “Red Carpet Report: Academy Awards Style”.
It has long been a tradition for Gwynnie Bee to offer their customers every day versions of red carpet wear after each major awards show. Gabourey’s custom made Theia creation above, for example, is paired with the “Harlow lace dress” by SWAK, which is available to subscribers for a fraction of the cost of this nearly $1000 gown. Other celebs like Emma Watson and Chrissy Teigen also earned a spot on Gwynnie Bee’s list, which complemented their gorgeous gowns with numbers from Cabiria and NY Collection.
If you’ve never heard of Gwynnie Bee, crawl out from under your rock and click on the link below that will lead you to my January 5th post containing every detail of this must-have subscription service. After all, who doesn’t want to be able to say that they took home an Oscar?!
