I've always loved seeing the red carpet fashion every year, but as an Assistant Buyer for dresses, now it's part of my job to know the trends in evening gowns. Some of my favorite trends from this year's Oscar red carpet were metallic & embellishment, pretty pastels, edgy black, and crisp white. Peplum, illusion details, and plunging necklines continue to be popular season after season. I also loved the shift toward minimal jewelry. See my picks for Best Dressed below. Who was your fave of the night?
