The Oscars turned 80 yesterday and along with that came some iconic looks both on the red carpet and after party.
REDCARPET, here are a few of my favourite looks
Margot Robbie in Chanel
The blonde beauty who played in the incredible ‘I, Tonya’ was recently announced as the latest Chanel ambassador. She debuted a full Chanel look on the red carpet. The dress was elegant and the tweed detailing at the top, belonging to Chanel obviously worked exquisitely.
Timothée Chalamet in Berluti
*heart eyes*. Obviously he just had to be mentioned. The Call me by your name star wore a simple, timeless suit.
Emily Blunt in Schiaparelli
My absolute favourite. Emily Blunt wore Schiaparelli, the Italian fashion house that represents elegance. The puffy shoulders and slate, ashy blue colour worked divinely. The careful pearl stitch and petal lace embellishments almost looks fairy – like.
Zendaya in Giambattista Valli
ICONIC. The draping and cut of this dress is simply beautiful.
Margot Robbie in Chanel couture
I am living for Margot Robbie. Chanel couture. all that has to be said
Saoirse Ronan in Calvin Klein
Pretty in pink. The lady bird, herself.

The VS model wore this sparkly gown from British fashion house Ralph and Russo.
Ethereal, surrealistic and simply magical; these are only some words to describe Maison Valentino. The spring 2018 haute couture somehow brought all of this but much more. Pierpaolo Piccioli had somehow used oversized menswear, richly coloured clothes and coats with large shoulders to symbolise the mixture of modernisation but also, like any other Valentino show, charm.
The show was opened with colourful feathers, shapes and enthralling uses of headpieces which were present throughout the show. From the very start of the show, you can just see all heads were turned to the surrealistic looks; which is exactly what couture is about. These included silk trousers, trench coats and casual sweatshirts, which were then completed with jewel toned hats, which were designed by Philip treacy. The headpieces and hats were covered in feathers which gave this fascinating sense of sensuality; which Pierpaolo Piccioli does so well, and weightlessness that almost also bought a sense of surrealism but as well as this, renaissance. In fact, all of the clothes seemed to have carried such an effortless movement that was art for the eye. He managed to combine both of these elements so well.
Pierpaolo described it himself as ‘a haute couture of present times’, the couture aspect clearly coming from the ruffled bows, high necklines, stunning hand embellishments and hats that were covered with blooming flowers and leaves,
Pierpaolo had used so many different types of beauty with all of the striking yet sophisticated uses of colour, the everlasting renaissance and the 60s to show that couture can also mean trousers and large, oversized trench coats that symbolise sophistication.
Here are some of my favourite details of the show,

Hey! My name’s Ilma and this is probably my fourth time at attempting a blog. Runway, art and pop culture have always been interests of mine and it is something I love to read about and research. I hope you enjoy reading about my ideas on the latest shows and campaigns and just my general opinions.
