Fashion's annual "Academy Awards" event, the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute Gala, this year presented in celebration of Alexander McQueen's "Savage Beauty" exhibition at the museum, is usually an indication of how Hollywood will be dressing during its annual Awards Season. This year at the Met, the starlets and fashion darlings took their gowns to body-conscious heights and skin-baring points of fancy. The gown shape most prevalent was close to the body and fitted, while the usual "sexy" element of lace was used in a similarly fitting and sexy way as the peek-a-boo surprise of skin. Also prevalent was the high slit, which is a surprising and daring element for gowns. And finally, color, bold and bright and beautiful, wasn't shied away from. I hope that come Awards Season, the stylists-that be and their star clients will take major cues from the Met Gala and incorporate most of these great gown looks into their event selections. Its time that we get sexiness, glamour, and daring drama during Awards Season. Take a peek at some of my favorites, and be sure to click the links below for more.
