Countdown To The Oscars!

One of the biggest nights in the film industry is right around the corner – the Oscars! And it all starts with the red carpet. The red carpet is a movie star fashion show filled with glamour. Red carpet fashion is not only memorable, but it also provides inspiration for GIFF’s own black tie events, like the Changemaker Gala (hint: you might even see some familiar faces among the crowd). We’re counting down to Sunday by creating our dream look for the Oscars with some of our favorite shops on the Avenue!

A memorable red carpet look starts with finding the perfect dress. The iconic looks pictured above all featured dresses that were the perfect style, fit, and color for the stars wearing them. We decided to take a look at Richards to find our own red carpet ensemble. We love this Geanna Red Ruby Side Slit Gown from Escada. Simple with just the right amount of glam, especially paired with these Christian Louboutin Sotto Sopra Specchio Glitter Sandals and Judith Leiber Champagne Crystal Flap Front Clutch!              



Now that we have the perfect gown and shoes, it’s time for accessories! Accessories can make or break an outfit and we always look to our friends at Betteridge, The Official Jeweler of the Greenwich International Film Festival, for inspiration. We love this Cultured Pearl Necklace with Antique Ruby & Diamond Clasp paired with Antique Ruby & Diamond Foliate Drop Earrings from Estate Collection. Accessories are such a great way to bring elegance to an ensemble.


And now on to beauty! A few months ago we did a blog post featuring our friends at Maison D’Alexandre, The Platinum Salon Sponsor of the Greenwich International Film Festival, and we can’t help but look back to get the inside scoop on how celebrities style their hair and makeup. This award season we are seeing lots of natural and clean looks with pops of color and hair pulled back or loose natural curls.
