David's World

Was it just me, or was that Oscars broadcast weird? It all started with the (very slow) red carpet. I felt terrible for the commentators on E! They had to keep vamping and figuring out what to say because there wasn't really much happening in the way of fashion for the first 3/4s of the broadcast. When the stars finally did arrive, there weren't that many to even discuss.
It's not just me that feels like it's been decades since there was a real red carpet to cover. All sense of time has been lost this year. With award shows being postponed and help (mostly) virtually, we seem to be stuck in fashion limbo.
While I've missed red carpets, I admit that they were getting rather stale over the last few years. Few stars were taking risks, and almost everyone always looked beautiful, even if what they were wearing wasn't your favorite. It's hard to argue that any star that hits the carpet these days looks terrible.

I always look forward to red carpet season, but it's become even more fun in recent years since we've focused so much on our custom clothing side of the business. Seeing stars on the red carpet can help inspire our clients to try something a little outside of the box or see a "trend" on a woman who is not just a model on a runway. 

This year, our friend COVID-19 threatened to wreck havoc on awards season, but creative people being the creative people that they are, found ways to make this year's Emmy Awards both fun and Fashionable. The results were unexpected and showcased how fun fashion can and should be. I haven't been to a public event or restaurant since February, so seeing a sense of normalcy was good for my spirit. 

It's hard to believe but the 2020 Oscars have come, but they're not gone until we have a chance to recap the fashion for the evening.  I asked yesterday in my Instagram stories if you wanted to see my favorites or if you wanted to see trends. Overwhelmingly, you wanted to see my faves, but there were enough of you that were interested in trends that made me want to touch on some of them. I've loosely gathered together trends and highlighted my favorites within each trend with a few miscellaneous thoughts at the end. 

It's officially awards season folks! That's right, for the next few months, you are going to be bombarded with images from all the red carpets. Like that's a bad thing. 

My take on red carpet dressing is not to do a who wore it best or have a worst dressed list. In many cases, it's just mean and doesn't spread positivity. Now, that doesn't mean that I don't have opinions. I have PLENTY. If I really didn't care for a look, it probably isn't in this post. However, there are probably some gowns in this post that might not be setting the world on fire, but I thought were interesting in showcasing the overall trends of the red carpet.

I've broken these looks down into trends and in no particular order. You'll also notice that some of the trends overlap (red gowns and big bows...) and I only posted them once. I figured you're smart enough to get the point without me making this post twice as long as it already is.

Without further ado... I present the TRENDS of the 2020 Golden Globe Awards!

If you guys follow my Insta-stories, you’ll know that there was an overwhelming request for an Oscars Red Carpet recap. By this time, you’ve probably already seen and heard a lot about the evening, so I’m going to try something a little different. Instead of saying who was best and worst dressed (which, by the way, I have a really hard time with saying worst dressed. Can’t we just focus on the positive and not drag people down all the time?), I want to focus on how you can translate some of the ideas that were shown in real life. The Oscars are a great show of fashion, but it’s not always easy to see how you can make that your next mother of the bride dress or gala gown.

I can’t believe it’s already time for the Oscars! It seems like award season just started and now it’s time for the big one tomorrow! I can’t wait to see who attends and what they choose to wear. I’ve definitely noticed a few strong trends this season and it will be interesting to see if they continue to the Oscar Red Carpet.

One of the biggest trends I’ve noticed is the prevalence of BOWS on everything. Big bows, small bows, half bows… you name it. Every time I see one I want to sing, “I like big bows and I cannot lie…” I’m a nerd.
