88th Academy Awards – The Glitz & The Glamour


The Academy Awards or The Oscars as we all know it is all about the shining and out shining, literally.

With Chris Rock ripping lungs out from the stage with some of the best jokes and witty one-liners that Hollywood had ever heard, to the most amazing crowd of well dressed male and female actors, and other cinema fraternities, it was something to look back to for another year.

Like every year, the media and the rest of the fashion world looked forward to check out the statements that every glamorous lady was to make, at the event. The Oscars, is and always will be famous for its award nomination as well as a classic display of couture and class. It is an absolute showcase of the works of leading fashion designers across the globe.

To get a very brief literary glimpse of a few of the breathtaking outfits, the most outstanding gowns and some outrageous few, read on.

Let us start with the “leading lady” Alicia Vikander, who was nominated and awarded for her breathtaking performance in “The Danish Girl”. She looked a perfect princess, while being awarded the title, in her pale yellow or rather a “canary colored” Luois Vuitton gown with silver detailing. She looked straight out of a fairy tale with her loose bun and soft flowing hair and that pretty smile.

Not to be outdone, there was Rooney Mara, the nominated actress for her role in “Carol”- wearing a fragile, lacy gown in pristine white- a Givenchy creation. Crafted with perfection, this piece was certainly a stunner. The pristine and chastity of the gown was a total contrast with Rooney’s dark red pouted lips and the sleek “ triple bun” hairdo.


Her usual bubbly best, this Latin American beauty looked as gregarious as her personality is; Sofia Vergara turned heads in her midnight blue gown from Marchesa. This gorgeous beaded gown, embroidered at the bust and the waist was complemented rightly light jewelry and a sleek hairdo.

Our favorite Lady Gaga, got a standing ovation for her performance at the event, with sexually abused survivors, and shocked the audience with her outfit, like she always did. If you are wondering what that was it, in pure milky white, a pant, a palazzo or a flowing gown? Keep guessing, it is The Lady, you see.


Last but not the least, someone who is worth mentioning in this blog is our own Priyanka Chopra. She looked suave, she looked confident and not a hair out of the place among the Hollywood beauties in her Zuhair Murad gown.

It was a wise move for “Piggy Chops” by choosing to wear a gown and not a saree, to be a part of THE CROWD. The strapless, embellished gown from the Lebanese designer made her stand out in maiden appearance at the Awards. This “Quantico” star wowed the audience with her elegant and composed appearance.
