OSCARS EVERYDAY - RED CARPET TRENDS @ HOME

The best of the best dressed, at the 84th Oscar's ceremony, have been made pretty clear on endless amounts of blogs and even in the glossy pages of our favourite magazines. After the excitement of the glitter and glamour has settled and the realisation that most of us will probably never be at the Oscar's, I've pinned down some of my favourite gowns and carefully extracted some simple trends you can wear yourself - minus the red carpet event.

 Jessica Chastain - Black & Gold

Jessica stepped out in a floor-length, black and gold Alexander McQueen gown. The black and gold colour scheme is undoubtedly regal and evening-wear based, but pairing a glamourous top with black jeans and simple shoes can prepare you for daytime with Jessica's outstanding dress-sense still in tow.

                                    Lace gold top - $47/£30   Black tassel pumps £22  High waisted black jeans - £20

OSCAR'S OUTFIT TOTAL - £72.00

Kate Mara - Pastel Pink

Kate Mara boasts angelic innocence in this floral embellished number by Jack Guisso Couture. Pastel Pink is a classic spring-time shade but doesn't have to be painfully girly. Linked up with contrasting brown brogues and boy-ish ankle socks and the girly over-kill is balanced out.

Pastel dress £12   Brogues £30  Ankle Socks - £24

OSCAR'S OUTFIT TOTAL - £66.00

Kristen Wiig - Ballerina-Esque

Kristen graced the carpet in layers upon layers of indulgent beige tulle fabric topped off with a flattering sweetheart, strapless neckline all put together by J. Mendel. This look can be transformed to daytime through this almost exact replica skirt and then toughened up with a studded bandeau for a punk/ballerina feel. Finish off with a loose-fitting boyfriend cardigan turning a party outfit into a daytime casual look.

Knit cardi £38   Studded bra-let £24  Tulle skirt £60

OSCAR'S OUTFIT TOTAL - £122.00

THANK YOU for reading, hopefully you've picked up a few outfit ideas and you can feel Oscar worthy when just popping out to the shops (warning: you may still look a bit over-dressed).

FAYE XOXO

love this post! I did one on my Oscar faves, as well. I totally forgot to add Kate Mara though! I LOVED her look, so feminine and ethereal.
