Oscars 2016 – My Favourite Looks

It was one of the biggest night’s in fashion as well as film last night, and any fashion lover won’t have been able to resist all the style and glamour that was the Academy Awards red carpet. It’s possibly my favourite fashion night of the year (even above the Met Gala) and I managed to keep myself awake until 01.30am Irish time to catch a glimpse of all this year’s celeb looks.

The Oscars are the crème de la crème of events when it comes to beautiful gowns, and although last night’s dresses weren’t the most stand out looks of all time, I’ve picked out my top three to share with you all.

Not dissimilar to earlier award season events this year, rich sequins, golds and whites were donned by many female stars, with sultry eyes and nude lips dominating the red carpet also.

Here’s a look at my Top Three looks from the night:


Cate Blanchett

Cate’s beautiful Armani Privé Seafoam coloured gown was the last dress I saw before falling to sleep last night and my first thoughts were yes. Just yes! The seafoam colour which is like a soft aqua shade, is just gorgeous on Cate and her hair and makeup is understated and classy.

A soft grey mixed with what appears to be a hint of purple eyeshadow compliments the subtle pop of lavender that runs through Cate’s gown and her soft lip finishes the look of perfectly. This is just beautiful and elegant all round in my opinion.

Margot Robbie

Margot has been on fire this awards season and last night was no different in this ultra sexy gold Tom Ford number. This girl just screams Oscar Glam with this look and the shape of this dress is super flattering on her enviable figure.

Her soft waves, again paired with light makeup, is the perfect accompaniment to this gorgeous gown.

Saoirse Ronan

To me this is Saoirse’s best look of the year so far, without a doubt. And it was also my favourite look of the night (not just because she is Irish!). This rich green colour is just to die for on her skin tone and I’m in love with this charcoal smokey eye and soft hair combination.

I was a little thrown by the mismatched earrings at first, but hey, if you can pull it off as well as Saoirse can then why not?!

So what do you think? Who was your best dressed on the night? I do have to say that Olivia Munn and Jennifer Garner both looked pretty fab too.

I finally got my hands on the new Urban Decay Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette over the weekend so I’ll be recreating some of these makeup looks over the next few days. Make sure you keep an eye on the blog so you don’t miss out.

Unfortunately it’s now time for me to come back down to earth and get ready for a very normal Monday in work!

Hope you all have a great one.

  1. First thing I did this morning was to check the red carpet looks! My fav is Rooney Mara with her white lace Givenchy dress + her hair & makeup, loved it all. I also liked Olivia Munn’s look (not a fan at the way her hair was done though), very simple yet beautiful.

    I didn’t notice the mismatched earrings until I read your post! I don’t know how I feel about that lol I read a critic to her makeup earlier today, they were saying she shouldn’t have used the same colors/tones of the dress for her makeup. Do you agree with that? A different makeup and the hair pulled up would have look better with that dress? Maybe!

    I hope you’re having a great Monday 🙂

    1. I don’t know, I like the charcoal smokey eye. I think matching eye shadow to dress colour can be a bit samey-samey sometimes, I like the dramatic look that the charcoal gives in this instance. But that’s just my preference! The earrings I could probably take or leave but I think she manages to pull it off. If I tried something like that it would look ridiculous, LOL! Rooney Mara did look incredible too you’re right, I love that she always opts for soft tones in her dresses and strong lips for her make up 🙂 Hope you’re having a great Monday too. Eye-spying on all these beautiful dresses definitely makes it easier!
