Oscar Style.....


We've come a long way baby......

Sunday evening's Academy Awards promises to deliver Old Hollywood glamour. With the absence of the Golden Globes, we expect Hollywood to shine like it never has before. Bold Color will make a return to the carpets as will long and flowy gowns adorned with the finest Chopard & Winston jewels.

Let's take a look at the fashionable ensembles that have graced the past Academy's.......


Hattie McDaniel won the 1939 Academy Award for best supporting actress for her portrayal of Mammy. She was the first African-American to be nominated for, and to win, an Academy Award. Ms. McDaniel

And in case you didn't know.......The US Postal Service honored Hattie by unveiling her image in The Black Heritage commemorative stamp series. And.....they even used the photo from the Oscars whereas she wore a 3 piece evening suit adorned with her signature orchids on the jacket.


For the 19th Annual Academy Awards, Maurenn O'hara kicked up the glamour for the first ceremony held at the Shrine Auditorium. Her strapless black satin gown was luxuriously accented with a fur stole and shimmering sequined muff. A chic ribbon necklace and braided hairpiece gave her formal look a signature touch.



At the 26th Annual Academy Awards, Best Actress winner for "Roman Holiday", Audrey Hepburn evoked her signature style with an etched floral sleeveless gown. The dress had a simple neckline and cinched waist and was designed with a full skirt.


At the height of the disco era, Mia Farrow attended the 51st Annual Oscars in a white halter gown with a glittery flame accent. A sheer stole and box-style purse were her accessories of choice. Can someone say dancing queen.......



A gown designed to show off the jewels of the night....... Chandelier earrings and a princess necklace were the focus of Margaret Avery's look for the 58th Annual Academy Awards. Go on Shug......
