At the Oscars, fashion and film share the stage. Here are 5 looks you can take to your next event. Emma Stone
Designer: Louis Vuitton
Wear To: Business Events, Brunches, Dates, Anywhere Requiring Business Casual
Why It Works: This look wears the pants. It has perfect day- to- night potential: Add an undershirt and 86 the belt to make work- appropriate, then nix the undershirt and throw the belt back on for a fun, flirty evening look. The pajama- style silk blazer and slim trousers say “sexy but smart”.
Wear To: Day parties, weddings, business formal, girl’s days
Why It Works: This dress is timeless. The spaghetti straps, deep neckline and textured fabric make it a darling, vintage- inspired choice for any event calling for a dress. Check the color, though: goldenrod looks best on people with pink undertones.
Designer: Ralph Lauren
Wear To: A hot date, Da Club, Las Vegas
Why It Works: This dress is sexy as hell! The yellow color is playful, the halter scoop shows off some cleavage and the clasp- back makes sure everything stays in place. You need a killer body for this dress, but if you can pull it off, the color and body con cut will make jaws drop. This yellow works best on people with olive skin tones.
Designer: Armani Privè
Wear To: cocktail, black tie
Why It Works: Sally Hawkins wears the perfect mother- of- the- bride dress. Shoulder pans and a sparkles make a tiny frame stand out, and the conservative bodice covers up any insecurities.
Designer: Giambattista Valli Haute Couture
Wear To: Day parties, weddings, “cocktail attire”
Why It Works: Giamattista Valli might call this look Haute Couture, but it has très versatility thanks to the big, flowing top. Although Zendaya has a killer body, this dress elegantly hides arm bulge or a bigger- than- desired tummy. The elastic waistband and neckline make it comfortable. This dress just needs a short swing skirt to make it cocktail- attire ready.
Designer: Tadashi Shoji
Wear To: Church, showers, meeting the parents, girl’s days
Why It Works: US Olympic Figure Skater Mirai Nagasu picked the perfect color for her skin. The dress has a sexy but conservative cut, and the playful print makes it perfect for lighthearted events.
