Aside from of course, the winners, women have the fashion to look forward to. The fashion is year was one another level. I was pleasantly surprised by Lady Gaga’s wardrobe choice this year. It was very demure and understated- LOVE IT.
Having said this, artists pretty much nailed it. There were some off choices, but I won’t get into that (honestly, they probably know it already, why rub it in??). Let’s talk about the beautiful gowns!
Things I love about the gowns:
– I love how the designs of the gowns focus of princess cuts, classics and feminine looks (no weird dresses tonight!),
– which have the Oscars sort of a-Regal aura
– Have been a fan of neutral tones for a long time, and was happy to see it take the stage.
– Who takes first place in my favorite dress list? Why Kristen Bell, of course! 2nd place goes to Lupita Nyong’o
I’m also extremely proud that Filipino fashion has once again made it to the Oscar read carpet.

I sincerely wish that more Filipino Designs make it to the red carpet. Since Filipinos are very much Oscar Fanatics, Lifestyle Network (owned by ABS-CBN, one of the largest Filipino networks) asked some of the local designers to share designs they would have give to certain Hollywood celebrities. My favorite was by designer Francis Liberan (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Francis Libiran/249666728420879#). He has actually had some international exposure in an episode of Top Model US, but I believe that his designs deserve a lot more global .
An a Lifestyle Network interview, Liberan shared that he would love dressing Jenifer Lawrence with this gold number below.
