Is pink the new red on the red carpet? Excuse all associated puns, but this year’s Academy Awards threw some unexpected looks our way, and, boy, were we pleased!
Two such ladies making it straight to the top of our frock wars list are Jessica Lowndes and Allison Williams, who both took to the red carpet in exquisite pink gowns. And, although their looks aren’t identical, our favourite shade on the spring/summer 2014 rainbow has resulted in a one dress, two girls situ!
Thinking pink (sorry) at the 22nd Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party was Jessica Lowndes, who opted for a bubblegum pink, strapless gown. Accessorising with a pale mint clutch, matching earrings and strappy gold sandals; heavy eye make-up and a glossy up-do completed the look.
Catching up with the 90210 actress, however, was Allison Williams, who also wore an exquisite pink Emilia Wickstead dress to the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscars party. Although it was a demure display, the dress featured an open back, contrasting beautifully with the high neck detail. Rounding off the look with large studs and a clutch, side-parted, slicked back hair and a glowing complexion completed the look.
So, who wins this frock-off, then? Both ladies turned heads at their respective occasions, but, for us, Allison takes the style crown! There’s something utterly majestic about her modest-yet-sexy effort, don’t you agree?
