Oscar 2012 Trend Watch

I love waiting for the Oscars, as it’s usually the end of the award season, and we usually get to see the latest fashion right off the runway. I wasn’t disappointed this year.  White and Red were major colors on the carpet and sexy slits! See these fabulous pictures from Stylelist .

 We’ve all been seeing white being used more and more, and not only for the bride. Light colors have been used in wedding color schemes as well as bridesmaid dresses.

 The Slit

Slits are huge this year and who can pull off this look better than Angelina Jolie in Versace.












Red on the Red Carpet

Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli and Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton. Michelle’s dress was actually more of a coral color in person. Still beautiful!
