ONE STOP AWESOME

Oscars Fantasy

Posted on | in Fashion/Beauty, Movies/TV | by

When I saw the newest IFB Project, Create Your Red Carpet Look, I knew that I had to participate. When I was about 12 I wanted to be an actress. This had nothing at all to do with realizing that acting was a real job and some lucky women were getting paid to make out with Keanu Reeves.

Wait, what was I talking about? Oh yeah, so when I was a girl and was given a beautiful dress I had visions of myself wearing it to the Oscars. In retrospect it was just a rayon dress that probably didn’t cost the original owner over $30 or $40 but to me it was a dream.

I thought of it as my Oriental Oscars Dress. Yes, Oriental was often tossed around as a fashion and beauty term for something exotic. It was a slinky gold dress with a cross front halter neckline (the halter crosses in front of the neck and around the back) and an Asian print. It didn’t flatter me at all (I have decent sized boobs) and I had nowhere to wear it but I still envision that if I were involved in the Oscars that’s what I’d wear. I’d have it custom made. It’s incredibly difficult to find a dress like this online to show you what I mean but the one below is the closest.

Of course since I’d be a nominee in this scenario brands would be throwing gorgeous, expensive pieces at me hoping that I’d incorporate them into my look. So I added these interesting pumps, a faux fur wrap, some vintage style hair combs (I’d definitely wear my unruly hair up), a bright shell bag and some expensive, coordinating earrings, a bracelet and rings. I’d pass on a necklace because of the gown’s neckline.
