Not only did she scoop ‘Best Actress’ awards at the Oscars and the Golden Globes but statuesque red-head Julianne Moore also won out in the style stakes looking resplendent in two figure flattering fishtail gowns. For the Globes she chose an irridescent sequin and feather concoction by Givenchy – a look-at-me dress if ever we saw one – however, for the Oscars, she opted for simplicity with a subtly embellished lace stunner by Chanel.
Yes, unlike some other red carpet regulars Moore has a near perfect track record for getting it right when it comes to stepping out in style on the red carpet. How does she do it? She is comfortable in her own skin, knows what suits her and dresses for her body shape.
While her style may be grown up, it’s FAR from boring and this season’s red carpet marathon was a role call of big name designers as well as a masterclass in how to try the biggest trends. We’re obsessed!
From the boho style crochet shift dress by Chanel she wore at the pre BAFTA dinner to the lace panelled floor-skimmer by Saint Laurent she rocked at the Critics’ Choice awards, Julianne worked the season’s sheer trend with aplomb. Now this is how to pull off a plunging neckline!
We were green with envy over this crystal embellished goddess dress by Givenchy that Julianne wore to the SAG awards and while the empire line gown by Chanel she worked at the pre BAFTA dinner was more understated, it had vintage style appeal by the bucketload. Extra style points for that up-do, too.
When it comes to accessories, less is definitely more in Julianne’s style book. Note that she keeps her jewellery, shoes and bag seriously low key and allows the dress to do the talking. Or the Dolce and Gabbana two-piece. Or even the asymmetric jumpsuit by Alexander McQueen for that matter. Yes, our girl is never afraid to experiment and mix things up. Let’s face it, after all those dresses, a bit of variety is the spice of life! We can’t wait to see what she pulls out of the bag next!
