Outfit: Black and White Glam

The biggest night in Hollywood was celebrated last night with an OK red carpet at the Oscars. Sure, there were some dresses that blew me away - case in point would be Cate Blanchett in Giorgio Armani, Lupita Nyong'o in Prada, Naomi Watts in Calvin Klein Collection, Charlize Theron in Dior and Kate Hudson in Versace - but the majority of them were just blah. The leading ladies that did wow me all wore one or more of my favorite red carpet elements - applique detailing, beading and/or an elegant black and white. (Um, Naomi, white has never looked better!) Today, drawing a bit of inspiration from my favorite red carpet styles I'm adding a little bit of sparkle to my everyday wardrobe. Vassallo's glammed up peter pan collar blouse gives the right amount of bling to an otherwise simple black and white outfit and the Fendi heels add a little fun to the bottom half of the ensemble. Black and white is my go-to color combo but there are many ways to play with it and glam it up - as obviously proven by my pals Charlize and Naomi. What did you think of last night's red carpet?
