All eyes are on the Academy Awards for the celebration of the best in cinema but the red carpet fashion has become as important as the winners of the actual awards! (more important to me personally)
Honestly the Red carpet was to me this year was in a word; UNDERWHELMING. I saw nothing over the top glam, minimal jewels, half done hair and no real sparkle and shine that we all have come to associate with this gala red carpet event.
However; I must give a standing ovation and a round of applauds to Tori Spelling for expressing her signature style in a Vintage GLAM look. The dress coupled with he hair, red lip, cocktail ring, clutch & shoes were that of a PROfashional! It takes a lot of Maven Moxie to wear vintage to a red (or in her case cream) carpet event. Especially because the press is so generic in their reporting when it comes to fashion in my humble opinion. Tori dresses for FASHION not for trends or what a stylist says. I have re-dubbed her Tori STUNNING XO
Was the dress from my eBoutique Evolution Vintage? YES (http://www.evolution-vintage.com/)
Did Tori "knock it out of the park" regardless where the dress was from? YES YES
So all the bias aside her look was my FAV! Tori, you get the LisaG PROFashional Oscar Award this year!
