Ooh La La Oscars

Tonight, the 86th Academy Awards were held in dreary Los Angeles at Dolby Theatre. While thousands of artists walked the Red Carpet, we have so carefully chosen our Best Dressed and are so excited to share them with you. As most of you probably already know, we are about staying positive and feeding off of positive energy this year. Therefore, we have decided to pick our top 'Best' rather than discuss the negative 'Worst.' Now, lets go gush over this years most fabulous dressed.

First off, I'll just admit that I have a total crush on Margot Robbie and I seriously think we would be total besties if we ever met. But, lets cut to the chase here. She has impressed me most out of anyone taking the Red Carpet this year (its only March 2nd people!) Not only did Margot win best dressed in our Golden Globes 'Off With A Bang' preview, she owns this years Oscars for sure. I die for the new brown locks (that I will totes be having my hairstylist find so my hair can be the same color! #totaltwinnies) and bold burgundy lip. The amazing gown and stunning beaded bodice by Yves Saint Laurent is absolutely impeccable. You can never go wrong with black either. Perfect choice. 

Olivia Wilde is what every soon-to-be mother should strive to be. This is, hands down, one of the most elegant and gorgeous looks any pregnant woman could choose. Her Maison Valentino frock is beyond words beautiful and her growing bump is just oh so cute. I love how simple and classic Olivia is while adding a little twist with those fab jewels and her adorable side kick fiance, Jason Sudeikis. I appreciate the fact that thirteen years from now when her son or daughter is able to comprehend most everything, she can show him or her a picture of her and Jason at the Oscars while she was pregnant and not be ashamed of her wardrobe choice. I have so much respect for her! Oh! And, to all the soon-to-be moms that may need a bit of help, give your girl Olivia a call. She will lead you in the right direction.

So... Brangelina. Like... no words. Honestly, the most classic and adorable couple (on earth) are right before our eyes. I obsess. Let's be honest. I am so head over heels for Angelina's metallic sequined Elie Saab gown and Brad's Tom Ford suit. I couldn't ask for more. Her hair flows gracefully while those big and bright diamond earrings peak out from her locks. As for Brad, his hair is perfectly combed back while acting casual as his girl captivates everything in existence. I am so thankful these two love birds were among those that attended this years Academy Awards because I am never ever disappointed.

Gorgeous Grammys

Better late than never. I wanted to do a quick review of the Grammys that happened last month. I absolutely gushed over several looks and want to share them with you. I decided I would be happier sharing with you my top 3 favorite looks rather than the usual best and worst! 

I have to say Ciara seriously knows how to own her growing baby bump. This soon-to-be mama dazzles in this beautiful gold Emilio Pucci gown. Her perfectly styled hair and natural makeup complete the entire look. This lady is going to be one stylish and golden mommy. Seriously adore her maternity style. 

Taylor Swift is always someone you can look forward to seeing walk the red carpet. She clearly knows how to style a perfectly elegant and classic look. It is so refreshing to see a young girl respect herself and be a role model for other young girls. I adore this sparkly Gucci frock and hands down this is one of my favorite gowns I have ever seen walk the carpet. Thank you, Taylor! 

If I were to pick out any gown for the Grammys, Katy Perry already snatched it from me. As soon as I saw KP's head shot tweet with her brother headed to the show, I knew by the little bit that I saw that I would be in love.  I gush over the soft color of this gown and die for the simple musical notes that flow from this Valentino frock. Such an inventive style worn by an amazing and talented girl.

Off With A Bang

This year has certainly started off right. Sunday, at the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards, I was pleasantly surprised by the classic looks I witnessed. For the first time in a very long time, I really respected most everyone for the humble and simple looks they decided to model on the red carpet. The past few years have reminded me of a sleaze fest, where "Hey, lets all get together and wear whatever we want since this really isn't a big deal or anything." But, 2014 really made an impression on me and with that said, I am happily presenting to you Doll Maison's Top 3 Best Dressed, the Worst Dressed and a lovely dedication to one of our very favorite actresses around. 

Julie Bowen knew what she was thinking when she picked out this lovely Caroline Herrera gown. The color combination is beyond words perfect and I adore the red velvet that this gown has to offer. I appreciate being able to tell texture in a photo or on television. It takes the look to a whole new level and you can really begin to understand the piece that much more. Beautiful!

Monica Potter proves "The Older, The Wiser." Wearing the amazing Romona Keveza, this look is a classic with a twist. It is lady like and totally appropriate for an award show but is also kicked up a notch with metallic nails, a studded clutch and shimmery earrings. I want to look this perfect when I get older. I seriously admire Monica for her classic charm. More girls should strive to be like her.

It is quite normal to want to feel sexy and gorgeous when you walk the red carpet, I totally understand. But, you need to do it with a brain. Margot Robbie donned in this fabulous Gucci gown. Take note girls: This is the correct way to be sexy yet classy at any major event. I drool over an all white look, I appreciate the appropriate slit but I especially adore the perfect diamond and emerald detail on this gown. She finalized the look with matching emerald Christian Louboutin heels, swept back hair and simple diamond earrings. What more could you want!

Our Worst Dressed goes to Heidi Klum in Marchesa. Looking like the corpse bride, I think its time she retires from the red carpet and gets back to her granola looking sweat pants. This style, er, "style" makes me terribly sad and proves my point yet again on why I have a problem with people like her taking the carpet. You don't act and you used to model practically nothing, so either hire Rachel Zoe or go home. 

Finally, I want to end on a positive note for all of my readers. The bullying Gabourey Sidibe received during the award show was absolutely uncalled for. It breaks my heart our society still finds ways to attack and hurt others. Bullying can lead to so many serious problems and issues. While it is a choice to defend and remember how beautiful you truly are, it can still really hurt and stick with you for a very long time. I admire this young lady's confidence she shared on twitter after the attacks. "To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I most def cried about it on that private jet, on my way to my dream job last night." I hope each and every one of you remember that we all have our own story, no one is near perfect and only one person can judge us for who we truly are, the big man upstairs. Lets take a stand to remember as we enter this year that bullying and putting others down is NOT a solution, EVER. You looked stunning my dear Gabourey and we are so thankful you are a part of amazing Hollywood!
