Oscars style- fashion that never fades

February 24, 2009 by Clark 

While the cutting edge of fashion can be a nightmare to keep up with, not to mention prohibitively expensive, there are some fantastic style ideas from Hollywood of years gone by that have endured the decades and still look beautiful.

Audrey Hepburn is a Hollywood icon who many see as just as much of a style icon as an actress. Her sleek, tasteful outfits suited her face and figure perfectly, which is one reason that the photos of her in her prime have become such revered images.

Many of the finest fashion houses in the world are seen on the stars as they pose on the red carpet, but these sometimes garish and outlandish outfits can teach us some things about enduring style.

Unfortunately, some of the most notable Oscars outfits are those that are hideous, such as Bjork’s insane Swan dress, or Rene Zellweger’s rather unfortunately lemon-washing-up-liquid coloured vintage aberration from a few years ago. Bridget Jones would no doubt have a few choice words about that one, none of which would be suitable for a family page like this.

The best Oscars outfits are those that are classy, simple and look halfway practical. Comfort is never at the top of the list of attributes that many designers think of for their creations (dahling), but everyday life is not so glamorous, and people tend to need to breathe, so when creating your own variation on the Oscars look, keep it relatively simple, with a tasteful dress and suitable accessories.

The stars may look great (or not so great) in their priceless outfits, but you can’t imagine them struggling into the back of a taxi while clutching their handbag in one hand and a kebab in the other, do you?

Think real life and real situations, but keep one eye on looking fabulous. With the right balance of style and sense, you’ll be able to create the perfect movie star look for yourself, at a fraction of the cost, and without the shocked headlines the next day.
