What are you up to this weekend? Whatever you have on tap, there are items you need in your wardrobe to make it a whole lot better. You can still feel like a million bucks running around town doing errands, so why not try? The Peacock Parade has curated the 5 pieces you need (currently on sale) that will elevate your weekend style from frumpy to bumpin’.
Just because you’re grabbing milk at the grocery store, doesn’t mean you can’t don a pair of oh-so-trendy studs.
Why not walk the dog in fashionable, comfortable flats?
If you’re heading to a birthday party at a lounge or up-and-coming bar, opt for a decadent clutch.
Head to Sunday morning brunch or take the kids on a play date in stretchy and stylish denim.
If you’re visiting family be sure to wear your Oscar-inspired statement ring. They’ll be jealously staring at it all through dinner.
The 2014 Academy Awards was the acme of luxe. Beautiful gowns, sparkling million-dollar jewels and perfectly coifed hair set the tone of the night. The ceremony itself, as well as the annual Vanity Fair party afterwards saw a bevy of fabulous looks. I’m sure there were a few celebrity dresses or accessories that you coveted Sunday night. We found some Oscar-worthy pieces currently on The Peacock Parade that will help you steal those looks for less.
The day after the Academy Awards leaves everyone with Oscar fever. How many of you have already discussed the winners, losers, best dressed and weird ”Adele Dazeem” intro from John Travolta for Idina Menzel? Of course, we’re thrilled for the those who took home golden trophies and felt sorry, yet again, for Leonardo DiCaprio. But what about red-carpet fashion?
Here are The Peacock Parade‘s favourite looks from the evening. Let us know if you agree.
Lupita Nyong’o had her Cinderella moment last night wearing Prada. She looked stunning and she won Best Supporting Actress for her work in 12 Years A Slave. We loved the cut, colour and flow of the dress and her diamond headband.
Charlize Theron was the epitome of statuesque in her gorgeous Christan Dior gown. She proved that wearing black is anything but boring. We loved the sheer skirt and plunging bodice.
Kate Hudson is always a red-carpet stunner and last night was no exception. Her glittery Atelier Versace gown with mini cape made a bold statement. Her sleek hair and makeup added to her winning look.
Jennifer Lawrence is so beloved that even when she trips, we think it’s adorable. She looked poised and sophisticated in her crimson Christian Dior half-peplum gown.
Sandra Bullock lost in the Best Actress category, but certainly not in the fashion department. Was this the most fashion-forward gown ever? No. But Sandra looked exceptional in it and it’s freakin’ Alexander McQueen!
Honourable mentions? Portia de Rossi was glowing in her Naeem Khan gown and Cate Blanchett was regal in Armani Privé.
The anticipation of the 2014 Oscars is feverishly growing as we’re only one night away. Will 12 Years A Slave take home Best Picture or will Gravity leap out and take it? We all have our predictions and fingers crossed for our favourites. As for the red carpet fashion, I have my predictions, as well. Here are gowns that I would love to see the Best Actress nominees wear.
Amy Adams, nominated for her incredible performance in American Hustle, tends to wear mermaid-style, puffy gowns. I think she would look smokin’ in an Athena gown, showing off the svelte figure. She also tends to opt for neutral shades, when a bold periwinkle could do the trick.
Divine Dame Judi Dench, nominated for her work in Philomena, would look gorgeous in a sheer top-sleeved gown with plenty of sparkle. The iconic actress loves to dress up and this look would suit her perfectly.
The gorgeous Cate Blanchett, nominated for Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, is my favourite on the red carpet. Blanchett is poised and has a regal presence that this Julien Macdonald gown would enhance. It’s sexy and sophisticated at the same time.
America’s sweetheart Sandra Bullock, nominated for her up-close-and-personal performance in Gravity, has chosen multi-coloured gowns that keep missing the mark. I would love to see Bullock in a bold shade, like coral or crimson, that highlights her figure and complements her dark hair.
Oscar sweetheart Meryl Streep, nominated for August: Osage County, always looks lovely and tends to wear classic, not-too-fashiony outfits. I think this shimmering dress, topped with a sharp jacket will look stunning if she takes home that gold trophy.
