Hooray for Friday! The weekend has finally come and the Oscars are almost here. No longer will we have to try to predict what the stars will be wearing, because come Sunday, we will get to find out! The biggest event of the year for those in the movies, the Oscars is also one of the most celebrated night in fashion. Designers clamor to dress the celebrities attending and have to hold their breath until they see their designs being worn on the red carpet because there can always be a wardrobe mal-function or a last minute decision change. Unfortunately, we are not dressing any celebrities attending this year, but we are super excited to see what the stars will be wearing and can't wait to dish about it on Monday!
In honor of the Oscars, we are looking back on the recent styles of Oscar nominated moms: Amy Adams, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman and Natalie Portman.
* Amy Adams is not just a great actress, she also has great style. We think that her most "Oscar worthy" look this year was at the SAG Awards when she wore a sleek white dress. Hard to believe she just had a baby a year ago. Sigh...
* Penelope Cruz is gorgeous and usually opts for straight lines and modern looks. Occasionally, Penelope chooses whimsical and romantic dresses,which we think look great on her. Pregnant for most of last year, Penelope made pregnancy look sexy with tight dresses that showed off her curves, however we think that her most "award winning style" was worn when she went out to din-din with her hubby, Javier Bardem. She demonstrated to us that you do not need to be going to a special event in order to look "Oscar worthy". Stellar.
* Nicole Kidman recently had her second daughter via surrogate so no pregnancy looks for her this year. However, Nicole Kidman's style is always enviable and worth discussion. Occasionally, Nicole will take risks with her fashion but generally speaking her look is feminine and romantic. Our favorite look of this past award show season was the one-shoulder gown she wore to the SAG Awards. Gorgeous!
*Natalie Portman has had a fantastic year. She got pregnant, engaged, and tons of award buzz and had great style throughout it all. Natalie has worn lots of gorgeous gowns to all the award shows and demonstrated that pregnant women can still have fun with their fashion choices. We loved her dress at the Golden Globe Awards but we have a feeling that her Oscar look is going to be her best yet.
Have a fantastic weekend!!
