Inspiration

Trend alert! The 2015 Oscars were all about the embellishments, white knock-outs and peachy blush tones. These trends turned out to be the biggest trends on this year's most important Red Carpet! And we at Black Bride love the fact that these fashion Icons have also created wedding inspired looks that we adore. You could wear anyone of these stunning dresses on your big day and look flawless!

We’re not talking basic white gowns, or a few sequins either, but showpieces elaborately embroidered with sparkling pearls, beads and flowers, putting new emphasis on couture-level detail work.

Lupita Nyong'o turned heads in a pearl and ivory encrusted custom white Calvin Klein halter gown made with 6,000 pearls. A real jaw dropping design.

Seriously, if your gown wasn't covered in glitter, sequins, 3-D appliqués or 6,000 pearls, you probably felt really left out. Blush tones looked less girlish and more sexy than ever while Iridescent white and silver dresses were easily the most noticeable manifestation of the trend, and if you are pondering what you want to dawn on your biggest Red Carpet moment ( Your Wedding Day) then, this year's Oscar fashions will serve a big dose of inspiration!
