Earlier in the week, the 83rd Annual Academy Awards were held. Those attending such an award ceremony dress to impress, decked out in designer labels. Most men wear nice suits and ties while women wear lovely evening wear. This year, a variety of styles and colors were seen for women's dresses. This year, there was an overall emphasis on the colors orange, silver, and blue in addition to soft, light pinks and purples. (For particular examples, I recommend viewing the pictures and/or video below.) Feminine touches such as lace and chiffon fabrics seemed more popular this year. For most, the waist was defined between an empire-waist and true-waist levels. Horizontal lines across the body, particularly around the hip and waist levels, were seen. There were a variety of sleeve styles. Pictures of the event can be seen here.
