Skip The Red Carpet- The Style is on the Screen

Tomorrow night as the "stars" stroll,stop and smile down the Red Carpet en route to their seats at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards.  I will be wearing Valentino, my jewelry will by Cartier of course, my shoes...well, those will be my very best bunny slippers!  Ya think Colin Firth will like them???
If you are planning to watch the Academy Awards at home then most likely you will be in your bunny slippers as well and chances are you don't really care about Best Editing... you know why we are watching!!  No matter how much of a movie fan you are, you have to admit that the award shows have become less and less of an event in recent years, often very boring, so why do we watch???? The clothes! The Jewelry! Hugh Jackman in a tux!... Then we flip the channel or head off to bed!

For me though the real connection between style and celluloid happens ON the screen not on the carpet.

The influence that film has had on our fashion style cannot be ignored.  Classic and cutting edge looks come from not only the runway but also perhaps more subtly from the screen. A single dress or outfit have become the star or the scene stealer of many a movie- the clothes very often being the most memorable part of the film and there are of course the true film fashion icons whose style changed how women dressed forever.
Of course we love to see how the stars are styled but is what they are wearing as memorable as what Edith Head designed for Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief or Givenchy's looks for Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina or How to Steal a Million? Come visit Applause! and celebrate Oscar night with a look at some of the best cinema couture along with favorite films that are all about the clothes! Pop some popcorn, grab your ballot, circle your winners and Come add a few fashionable films to your Netflix queue.
