The Oscars was an amazing television event this year! The Cirque Du Soleil opening and all of the incredible set designs created a magical atmosphere for 2011’s best and brightest to shine. Three movies in particular got more awards and attention than any others; Hugo, The Iron Lady, and The Artist. We decided to create some fun looks inspired by these box office heavy weights. Enjoy!
In IMDB’s description, Hugo is “Set in 1930s Paris, an orphan who lives in the walls of a train station is wrapped up in a mystery involving his late father and an automaton.” Hugo took home 6 Oscars this year at the Academy Awards.

The movie is mostly dark and grey but when there is color it is bright, colorful, and seems magical. Our look is below.
For our look we incorporated bright bursts of color in the bird bracelet to match the bright stripes in the dress. We mixed the colors with geometric lines and dots. The dress is a simple A-Line silhouette so to add some shape we waist-belted it with a scarf underneath. The finishing touch for this outfit is our new geometric heels.
The Iron Lady
Meryl Streep plays Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and what the price her success and power cost her. Meryl Streep won her third Oscar for Best Actress, while the movie itself won 2 awards. IMDB has more info on the movie here.

For our look we really played with the vintage look of the film to create an updated yet classic look.
Pairing a more conservative top and gold jacket with bright royal blue skinny jeans, a felt bucket hat, and canvas strappy heels. Don’t forget the pearls of course! Look classy without looking stuffy.
The Artist took the Oscars by storm this year by winning a total of 5 awards including Best Picture and Best Actor. Set in Hollywood in 1927, The Artist reinvents silent films and the changing careers of all those actors and actresses that either had to adapt to new talking films or be forgotten.

The late 20’s and early ’30s were a very fashionable time! Skirts and Haircuts were getting shorter and shorter, while accessories got bigger and better. We created a look that takes the classic elements of this era and gave it a modern twist.
To recreate the boxier silhouette of the late 20’s we used one of our new dresses layered with macramé style lace instead of fringe that would have been used in that era. We then paired it with stacked gold necklaces, a feather cuff, and a feather headband.
These are our Oscar Winning looks, do you have any looks inspired by great movies? We want to see them! Post pix in the comments!
