We’re girls. We love the movies. We love the Academy Awards. Well, not really. We put up with them because we get to watch Hollywood glam for three (four?) hours. And, mostly, we get to do lots of backseat
Just as we did last year, we thought we’d have some fun and gather ’round some of our favorite contributors to put together award winning (yes) looks for a few of the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress nominees.
Interesting note: each of our contributors chose her own nominee and was given no instructions on how to style her. And this resulted in the very interesting two-toned outcome that you see below. A trend of red and nude? We definitely think so!
ROONEY MARA’s Oscar look by Kristin Fast, Lifestyle Editor and In-House Wit-Cracker
Ridiculously beautiful and new face this award’s season, Rooney Mara is a top contender for the Best Actress award at this year’s Oscars. While I may not be able to predict how the Academy will vote (Viola Davis is my guess) I can guarantee that Rooney, with her gorgeous face and lovely figure, will be an absolute sensation on the Red Carpet.
Rooney is incredibly petite and in order for her to avoid being “worn by the dress” she tends to favor simple lines and solid colors. However, this is the Academy Awards and quite frankly, I want fashion which recognizes the evening for what it is: Hollywood’s Biggest Night!
This look, beginning with a Jenny Packham gown will send her to the top of every Best Dressed list.
The deep scarlet hue will be amazing against Rooney’s porcelain complexion and dark hair and the fitted, almost architectural silhouette is sexy without being vulgar. Giuseppe Zanotti sandals are elegant with a slightly modern flair and the Judith Leiber bag, with it’s quatrefoil design, continues the idea of classic Hollywood elegance. A stack of vintage Art Deco diamond bracelets compliment and complete the look.
Rooney, call me and I will hook you up.
