Last Night’s Academy Awards red carpet saw a surprising number of celebs wearing white. Oscar White? Shocking.
Here is NYK Wedding’s list of white dress Do’s and Do Not’s that we learned from the 2012 Oscars.
DO: Go for the Regal look.
Gwyneth Paltrow looked stately and majestic, in her caped Tom Ford gown. For a bride who wants to make a huge impact, this look reads regal! This ultra modern silhouette will leave quite the impression with your guests and groom.
Do Not: Wear Awkwardly Placed Laser Cuts
Fresh face, Shailene Woodley looked awkward and age inappropriate in this Laser cut/ shoulder padded gown from Valentino. This look is NOT to be repeated under any circumstance.
Do: Choose a mermaid gown to highlight your curves
Miss Spencer looked absolutely breathtaking in her white and silver sequin gown. The cinched waist dress showed off a beautiful hour glass shape on a REAL woman; showing brides that yes, women of different shapes and sizes can be glamazons.
Do Not: Come dressed as Lisbeth Salender
Rooney Mara has taken method acting to an all time high. All of 2012 award season she has appeared dressed as her famous character, Lisbeth Salender. We would like to see Ms. Mara pack on a few pounds and veer away from the super severe look of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. Brides, never attend your wedding dressed as a story book character.
Cheers! Accessorize with Glamour, Accessorize with NYK!
