The Top 10 Oscars Fashion Triumphs

Charlize Theron Oscars 2014

And the award for the best travel aid goes to… the travel money card! You’d agree with that if you were to find yourself in Hollywood ahead of the impending Academy Awards – one of the most glamorous annual events on the planet.

The Oscars may be all about the films, but an astounding amount of attention is given to too – Vanity Fair hosts a party; the late Joan Rivers was famous for her sometimes acerbic comments about outfits; and of course for days and weeks newspapers and magazines are obsessed with who wore what.

If you’re in Los Angeles you might just want to get wrapped up in a bit of that Oscars glitz and that’s not hard with more top class boutiques than you can shake a stick at. Rodeo Drive is the famous thoroughfare where the stars shop, while if you’re on a bit of a budget even the big malls like the Beverly Center have plenty to choose from.

Before you start your awards season shopping spree, here are a few notable fashion triumphs from Oscars past…

Woman of the moment Jennifer Lawrence looked tasteful and elegant in 2014 when she graced the red carpet in – appropriately – a red dress. Specifically it was a Dior couture gown, and was accompanied by jewelry. Also flying the red flag, in a manner of speaking, was stage and screen legend Bette Midler and her red floral lace dress by Reem Acra.

It goes without saying that a shopping spree in Hollywood or Beverly Hills can come with a high price tag, but for many of the wonderful creations it can be worth it.
