Oscar Glow: Top 5 Winners That Add Some Glam To Your Style

As much as we’d love the red carpet arrivals at the Oscars to be a showcase for more forward fashion, we probably won’t see much of it — save for Tilda Swinton and a few others. There likely won’t be any Gaga-style arrivals, although we think someone should take a cue from her and arrive in a life-size Oscar statuette (just a suggestion). We have the runways to push the envelope, while the stars worry about what’s inside the white envelope.

Thankfully, there are definitely some ‘ole faithfuls who love to make an appearance in quirky getups (Helena Bonham-Carter and Cher, we’re counting on you!) and will probably be popping up on Joan River’s scathing post-show dissection. So until the after show, we’ll prepare for a parade of pretty. We admit, we  love that, too. Here at Fashion Trends Daily, we’ve nominated some of our favorite fashion and beauty picks to give you that golden glow – even if you’re not taking home a statuette.

NARS Laguna Illuminator

Glow on. There’s a secret to that superstar aura, and we might have found it in NARS new line of illuminators with golden shimmer. Sheer, luminous and eye-catching, Laguna promises a sun-kissed glow that’s perfect on the red carpet or off.

Donna Karan Fall/Winter 2011 Gown

Perfectly pretty? There’s no shame in going old-school. Donna Karan’s most recent show at New York

fashion week finished with her signature goddess gowns, which look light as air but pack a major punch. And while A-list Oscar leanings trend more toward Marchesa and Oscar de la Renta, we’d say this choice is a clear winner.

John Galliano Metallic Pump

Galliano is no stranger to drama (fashion or otherwise), as witnessed by the

recent news of his suspension at Dior pending an investigation into an altercation he had with a couple at a Paris cafe. But we love his style, and this statement shoe is no exception. Going for gold will be no sweat in this sky scraper of a shoe. With these, you may be inspired to pull an Olivia Wilde (remember her shoe showcase at the Golden Globes?) and show these off as much as you work the angles of your dress.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipstick in Wild Fire

Nothing screams screen siren like a red pout, and it doesn’t get more classic than Estee Lauder. But what’s inside their luxe gold tube? A new formula that promises rich color delivery without uneven fading or drying out your lips. Close up here we come!

Herve van der Straeten Bangle

Having previously worked for Theirry Mugler and Lacroix, it’s no surprise that van der Straeten’s work leans toward the theatrical. This simple but stunning bangle is a gorgeous alternative to predictable diamonds — not that we would even complain about those either!  Available at Neiman Marcus stores.
