Good morning all,
Long time no speak!
Technology is a funny thing isn't it? I wonder sometimes how we ever lived without it. That may seem a tad dramatic I know, but over the past week or so of moving into a new house that has no cellphone reception, no broadband capability and as of yet no connected telephone line I feel the need to be a little dramatic. Hence the reason why I have not been actively blogging.
It's strange to be without the abovementioned technologies, and after having had them readily at my fingertips for as long as I can remember, you begin to realise just how much you rely on technology. It's part of every day life, and not having it? Well, it's just strange.
We are still not connected to any internet connection but I managed to borrow my in-laws internet, whilst hubby is at football (soccer) training, to let you all know that - Yes, I am still alive and still blogging!
Anyway, enough of the rambling, since it is the season of awards shows I thought I might recap Oscars night. I suddenly had a thought the other day, whilst I was daydreaming, that recapping the awards shows has nothing to do with weddings whatsover!
But, I thought to myself, who cares? Celebrities and fashion are a big part of what dictates what and who we wear and which I guess indirectly influences bridal trends. Also, if your a daring bride then some of these fashion trends could pass as gorgeous bridal gowns or even as fashion forward bridesmaid dresses!
So, if none of you object to drooling over all the gorgeous gowns on show at the Oscar awards than hear are my favourites! (None of my worst this time round)
Ah, the Penelope Cruz I know and love! Looking absolutely radiant in Giorgio Armani.
Cameron Diaz stunning in Gucci. Couldn't this make an amazing wedding dress?
Emma Stone wearing Giambattista Valli, the gown and the colour is exquisite, but then again, she always looks impeccable.
Wow! Jennifer Lopez looking amazing in Zuhair Murad! By far my favourite look of the night.
See what I mean? This is how Meryl Streep should always look! She's a stunner in Lanvin.
Gwyneth Paltrow = Perfection in Tom Ford
Bridesmaids star, Kristen Wiig in J Mendel. Beautiful in blush.
Milla Jovovich in Ellie Saab. Exquisite in sequins, love the red lips and vintage do!
Mya Rudolph looking glam in Johanna Johnson. Love the embellishments!
Another Bridesmaids star, Rose Byrne in Vivenne Westwood! My favourite trend of the moment - sequins!
I hate to admit it but I absolutely love Kimmy K! Flaunting those gorgeous curves in a stunning Azzedine Alaia gown. The hair, the makeup and accessories? Spot on!
So there you have it! A select few of my favourite looks for the Oscar awards, there were so many more amazing gowns the list was endless!
One of these days I am going to come up with another excuse to don a gorgeous gown and have a party, my wedding was a the last time I got to wear a gorgeous gown, not that I envy the celeb lifestyle but it would be nice to hang up my gumboots and overalls, every now and again, after a day of horses and farming to wear something a little more glamourous!
