Vera Farmiga at the Oscars

You can’t really determine what the fashion trends of the year will be based on the evening wear that the women sported on the red carpet, but I think that the majority of the actresses presenting, accepting and nominated for films this year looked so striking that we will be seeing some of those trends translating into street clothing.

One thing I noticed and loved (mostly) was the number of beautiful red dresses that the women chose to wear. One big EW in the red dress category was Vera Farmiga and her big red coffee strainer gown. I can’t help but wonder what the back of it looked like after sitting through the entire program. But other than this bizarre red dress, the rest of them looked incredible.

Another color trend that couldn’t be overlooked were the metallics or metallic inspired dresses. This color trend has already been adopted by shoe manufacturers and is cropping in all sorts of shoes this season. I think the trend will spread and we’ll start seeing street wear that features metallic hues as well.

Finally, the embellishments. Oddly enough this has also been a shoe trend that is gaining speed but it was the inspired embellished floral designs on many of the Oscar dresses that made me realize it might be time for embellishments all over. Especially with the acclaim that Sandra Bullock’s dress is receiving, I’ll be willing to bet we see floral embellishments on everything from denim to swimwear in the next year.
