The Red Carpet is a Purple Paradise

During the Oscars on Sunday night, a friend of mine texted me, "The red carpet is a purple paradise!!!"  She was correct - the celebrities (and their stylists) were loving my favorite color that night as much as I do every day... a lovely trend for the evening.  If only I could have a chance to wear one of those gowns... or have an occasion for which to wear one!

My favorite look of the evening was Mila Kunis in Elie Saab.  I adore the purple and lace, the vintage vibe and feminine layers.

Perhaps that's why I chose the wedding gown I did... for that one special occasion when non-celebrities like me can wear a fabulous, fancy dress with a train... and have people assist you in getting dressed too.

For more fashion, head on over to a spot of whimsy and ashley nicole catherine.  I couldn't help but agree with a spot of whimsy's review of this year's Oscar looks.  And ashley nicole catherine recently compiled a fun "preview" of her top picks for the red carpet season, pulling from various 2011 collections. 

Gorgeous and glittering gowns... just like the stars themselves.
