Oscars Red Carpet

best of oscars 2017 red carpet

It’s my favorite day of the year!

(well, my favorite day not spent in Italy…)

This year I’m not in Los Angeles working the Academy Awards, which kills me, but on the bright side I get to see the red carpet happen live on TV, so it’s not all bad! It seems like every year it is either boiling hot, and everyone is sweltering, or it’s pouring rain. This year the hottest accessory is an umbrella. Actually the big accessory was the blue ribbon everyone was sporting to show their support for the ACLU.

HereĀ are some of the big trends and most gorgeous dresses on the Oscars red carpet this year:

Olivia Culpo’s Marchesa dress was OK, but with Marchesa I always think it’s just more of the same thing. But I loved her hair and makeup. The purple eye that makeup artist Sir John gave her is everything!

The Red Carpet Ready Handbag

I’m on my way back to L.A for the greatest red carpet of them all. 

I think this is my 10th time, but it may be the 11th. 
If I’m not going to be backstage with her keeping her makeup maintained I pack a little bag of goodies for my actress to touch up with throughout the night.

She will be in makeup hours before she hits the red carpet, and then probably until at least 3 or 4 in the morning at the Oscar’s after parties, so she needs some good items to keep her fabulous makeup maintained and photo immaculate until she gets back home again.

Some of the items I pack her are perfect for you too to keep in your handbag on a big night out. Let’s have a look at a few so that you too can keep your handbag red carpet ready.

What-I-Put-In-Red-Carpet-Handbags

1. I’m crazy about these super color saturated Temptu lipsticks at the moment. They give you rich color that holds.

2 and 3. When makeup is starting to feel a bit worn in you can add an instant refresh by lightening and brightening under the eyes with YSL’s Touche Elcat and the patting a little life back into your cheeks with The Multiple by Nars. (I slice a piece off and put it in a little plastic container)

Item-to-Put-In-Red-Carpet-Handbags

4. I don’t like a powdery look – I prefer the skin to glow, so instead of pressed powder I pack Tatcha blotting papers. They are fabulous and being Tatcha they make everything feel more luxurious!

5. Even seasoned A listers get nervous on the red carpet, and get a dry mouth, which in turn means raunchy breath. I tell my ladies to pop in a Listerine breath strip every so often just for good measure.

6. Even if a matte lip is the biggest thing in fashion I still pack a Chanel lipgloss in her handbag. Matte lips can look dry and cracked after a while, and even if it’s just placed in the center of the lip a little gloss can keep the lips looking supple and kissable.
