The Best of Oscars Red Carpet

Divas at Oscars

The 81st Annual Awards were a stunning display of sparkles, glam and neutrals. Though the celebrations were toned down this year with lots of natural-hued gowns but that doesn’t mean there was less glamour than years past. Ivory, icy gray, cream, and champagne gowns were rampant but divas like Natalie added a dash of color with bright hues as well. The best of Oscars is as follows:

 

 

  • Taraji P. Henson was a real beauty. It’s nice to see someone with a sophisticated bob walk the red carpet. The ethereal layers on this gown are gorgeous. And that train is so dramatic.
  • Anne Hathway looks white-hot in her sparkly strapless gown.
  • Kate Winslet knows how to shine on the red carpet and this Yves Saint Laurent gown is no exception. Its asymmetrical design is perfect for showing off her curvier shape and her fabulous retro hair keeps it simple. miley-cyrus
  • penelope-cruz

 

  • Miley Cyrus sizzled in an ivory silk chiffon beaded v-neck ball gown with a tiered skirt.
  • Penelope Cruz looks stunning. The beading, the tulle, the strapless bodice—a perfect combination. She looks like a princess, which is a good thing because she actually won! sjp
  • frieda-pinto1-198x3001

 

  • Sarah Jessica Parker goes for the princess look in this “barely mint” Dior Haute Couture gown, cinched at her tiny waist with an embellished belt giving her gown a more dramatic feel.
  • Frieda Pinto looked stunning in a royal blue gown with sequined detailing and one sleeve. Everything on Freida Pinto is simple, except perhaps her dress. She has gorgeous shiny hair, divine skin, a perfect combination!

You loved them, but now is the time to decide on one ultimate. Who will earn the Oscars crown according to you? Do share your views.

Top Ten fashion trends for Spring 2009

 

2009 Spring Trends

2009 Spring Trends

Spring is here at last with some exciting trends-a lot of which we’ll all be able to pull off, no matter what our body type. I think the look in general will be soft and extra-feminine. Check out some of the most interesting trends:

 

  1. Spring is all about colors, so make sure you wear plenty of it. Vivid colors like hot pink and electric blue will be really big.
  2. In vogue this season is the little white dress for its glamour quotient.
  3. Feminine floral prints are also going to make a comeback this spring and butterfly motifs and prints will also be quite popular.
  4. Accessories are going to be really big this season. Opt for long oversized necklaces, big bangles and bold jewelry, stylish handbags.
  5. Jewel encrusted clothing are also going to make a come back and will not be restricted to evening wear. In 2009 they return brighter, bolder, and more elegant. This time pieces are not just embellished but often completely encrusted by jewels; the feeling is luxurious, exotic, and yet the glamour remains somewhat understated.
  6. In Spring fashion tends to get a little more revealing; the combination of sheer and opaque fabric will work wonders. 2009’s sheer pieces are a mixture of the soft and feminine.
  7. Flairs, ruffles and bows are also smart options for spring. Look for bows at the shoulders and hips and ruffles at hemlines.
  8. High waisted skirts and pants will make a style statement this season, so make sure you own them.
  9. Single shouldered dresses and tops as well as asymmetric shoulder-lines have made a huge return in 2009. Its versatility and endless possibilities to wear it makes it one of the hottest trends.
  10. Bohemian look will make a powerful statement this season. The best way to pull this off this Spring is to pair a bohemian styled piece with something a bit more conservative like a beige skirt or vest.

Each new season brings with it a sense of excitement. I’m looking forward to vivid colors, bold accessories and feminine prints. Do visit us at www.CarmaWorld.com for an exclusive collection of apparels and accessories and let us know your take on these trends?

Great Styling Secrets for a Beautiful You

Katrina Kaif the Style Diva

Katrina Kaif the Style Diva

Confused about your looks? Want to know some great tips to look chic and stylish all the time? Well here are some great styling secrets that will help you achieve the desired effect. 

 

 

Choose colors that complement you, wear a flattering color next to your face. For this you do need to know which hues work best for you but that should not restrict you to a limited number of colors. Hold up colors close to your face to see which ones bring out your skin tone, eye color and hair the best. Experiment and add colors to your wardrobe!

Accessorize Well, without adding too much bling, after all you do not want to end up looking like a Christmas tree. The idea is to either focus on dress or accessories and not on both. If you are wearing something simple team it up with a statement necklace, bold jewelry, a bright scarf or a stunning clutch. On the contrary, if your dress has too many embellishments or heavy embroidery go low on jewelry. After all accessories are to add a bit of sparkle and not to overwhelm!

 

Play up Your Best Feature, and dress for your body type. Make sure that you highlight your assets, be it your long legs, lustrous hair or something as simple as gorgeous smile. You don’t have to do something too dramatic to show off your best feature, rather just make sure that your look enhances it. Don’t let anything overpower your asset.

 

Stock up on Classics because trends come and go. One of the first steps to building a classic, timeless look is getting off the fashion fad track. Trend-proof your wardrobe and develop a lasting, timeless style with essential pieces that will keep you looking fabulous for e.g. a strand of pearls, bright scarves, black trousers, or that evergreen ‘ little black dress’.

 

Experiment The idea is to push the limits of your wardrobe and experience innovative looks. Try brighter shades if you dress in sober colors, go for a skirt if you are a jeans girl, get a new pair of heels and do away with your shoes. Don’t follow models and actresses blindly, because most often what they wear is impractical and uncomfortable for you!

 

Be Bold, break the rules and make your own statement. Add a dramatic touch with smoky eyes, metallic dress glamorous accessories or statement jewelry. But do remember not to over do it!

 

Oodles of confidence and a killing smile are the assets which will differentiate you from the crowd. So, put your best foot forward and win all hearts.

Right Hair do, after all at the end it’s all about the hair. Don’t go over the board with a complicated beehive; rather keep it simple if you have beautiful, healthy hair. Try out some chic hair accessory for that stunning affect!

 

Don’t end up being a fashion victim, find you own unique look and your own signature style. After all what is more important is to be comfortable and carry yourself well rather than be a drama queen straight from the red carpet.
