2015 Oscars Trend: Porcelain Skin

As Hollywood’s elite took to the red carpet for the 2015 Oscar Awards today, we noticed there was something missing: fake tan! This year the A-list went ‘au naturel’ and ditched their bronzers in favour of polished porcelain skin.

Celebrity make-up artist Lee Pycroft recently told the Daily Mail: “Alabaster skin is a chic, classy, beautiful look that’s been gunning for a renaissance. It’s been cherished by the fashion world for several years – think of all those Prada campaigns with Karen Elson – and now it’s taking centre stage.”

Whether sporting a red, grey or even black dress, ivory skin was certainly the most prominent trend at this years award ceremony, with stars including Margot Robbie, Scarlett Johansson, Sienna Miller and Anna Kendrick embracing their paler side.

Best Celebrity Fashion at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party

The only place to be after the Oscars is the Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Graydon Carter. And the fashion at the after-parties is always more interesting than on the Oscars red carpet. Here are our picks for the hottest after-party celebrity fashion.

Golden girl Lupita Nyong’o changed into a sea foam green Miu Miu gown with beaded fringe on the neckline. So pretty.

We much prefer Amy Adams’ one-shoulder Grecian Carolina Herrera after-party dress to her navy Oscars gown – what do you think?

Kate Hudson continued her Oscars fashion winning streak, changing into this gorgeous Zuhair Murad gown.

Reese Witherspoon looked lovely in a calf-length BOSS dress with plunging neckline (and side boob!).

Stunning Kate Beckinsale was statuesque in a golden Elie Saab dress – even her hair and skin is golden!

Diane Kruger always makes interesting fashion choices, and we love her sheer lace Valentino dress.

Oscars Fashion Round up

Oscars fashion round up


And the winner is… Charlize
Classy dresses in soft shades adorned with lavish beadwork were the winners at this year’s Academy Awards. From subtle peach and pale lemon to beautifully rich creams, the Oscars frocks were for the most part, tasteful and classic. Looking gorgeous in Tom Ford for Gucci, was best actress winner Charlize Theron. Topping off what is surely one of the best years in this young actress’s life, statuesque South African-born star was awarded the industry’s highest accolade for her portrayal as a serial killer in the film Monster.



Uma Thurman – maybe her shoes are really nice?
Pale and interesting
Nicole Kidman looked divine in a pale green Chanel gown, and best supporting actress winner Renee Zellweger looked sleek in a simple white Carolina Herrera strapless frock. And while pastel shades and simple designs worked for some, one Hollywood dame didn’t quite pull the look off, looking pale and uninteresting in an unflattering ruffled, doily number. Uma Thurman – my Nan wants her toilet roll cover back! Rumour has it, she at least had the good sense to change into something else before attending the post-awards parties.



Naomi and Heath – a nuptial dress rehearsal?
Retro glamour
The fashion of the night seemed to hark back to Hollywood’s Golden Age, with lots of classic Jean Harlow-eqsue 1930’s style hair-dos, soft curls and figure-hugging gowns. Best actress nominee Naomi Watts was no match for Charlize in the awards stakes, but looked every inch the winner in a flesh-toned Versace number covered in hundreds of sparkly crystals. Some stars bucked the trend for pretty pastels, including a youthful looking Catherine Zeta Jones opting for vibrant scarlet vintage Versace, to show off her fab post-baby bod.



Jude Law and Sienna
And the men?
Johnny Depp was particularly charming to 13-year-old best supporting actress Keisha Castle-Hughes, even giving the star struck teen a kiss for good luck! But what was the story with his terrible hair? Wispy fringe and middle part – urgh! Jude Law looked ravishing, as usual and former best actor winner Adrien Brody looked smart in an Ermenegildo Zegna all black, slim fitting suit. Showing impeccable grooming, Adrien also freshened up with a quick burst of breath freshening spray after announcing Charlize Theron winner of best actress award. Who could forget his sensational acceptance pash with presenter Halle Berry at last year’s awards? What a charmer!
