Did you watch the Oscars last night?
In true mom fashion, the only Academy Award nominated movie I saw this year was Boss Baby! I guess that’s still pretty bad for a mom, since I didn’t even see Coco or Ferdinand! My son actually saw more of the nominated movies than I did!
But I’ll happily admit that my favorite part of the Academy Awards has always been Live from the Red Carpet! What a dream to be decked out in the best designer gowns, dripping with diamonds and jewels!!
I loved the classic feminine look of the actresses this year! I was also surprised to see the overwhelming choice for the lack of color when it came to jewelry. But what’s not to love about diamonds and a white toned metal?
I also noticed most of the actresses opted for a no-fuss hairstyle. The trend for hair seemed to be down with a side or middle part, with either sleek tresses or loose curls. Even the updos looked effortless.
Here are some of my favorites from the Red Carpet…
Since a very high percentage of us can’t afford the jewels that were hanging from the ears of the stars, I thought it would be fun to round up a collection of more affordable options for you.
