Last night played host to the 87th Academy Awards (Oscars), celebrating the top films, acting and directing talents of the last year.

Beautiful actress Jessica Chastain oozed Jessica Rabbit glamour in her deep navy Givenchy gown and her thigh high split revealed her simple 2 strap navy heels, just like our minimal Parallel high heel.

Best Actor winner Eddie Redmayne also went for navy with a smart Alexander McQueen tuxedo and velvet loafers just like our Poste Aristocrat, to match the lapels of his jacket.

Fellow Brit Rosemund Pike looked sensational in her crimson Givenchy gown which like Jessica Chastain split up to the thigh to reveal some matching red heels, get the look with our red Swirl heel.

Heart-throb and last years winner of Best Supporting Actor Jared Leto made a style statement in a pastel tuxedo and white mono shoes, get the look with the classic adidas Superstar.

Young actress Emma Stone dazzled in a peridot green Elie Saab gown and matching heels, add a touch of pale green to your wardrobe with our Passion heels.

Hunk of the moment Chris Pine looked every inch the perfect gentleman in a Giorgio Armani suit that he paired with some polished brogues, similar to the Ted Baker Hann Brogue.

Women’s OFFscars

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

offscars_header

The Academy Awards are over for another year and they didn’t disappoint as far as fashion was concerned. We still feel a bit sorry for poor Leo missing out on a gong but Matthew McConaughey seriously deserved ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role’ for Dallas Buyers Club. His performances of late have been nothing short of spellbinding, I mean have you started watching True Detective yet? We have a slight obsession.

All of this appreciation has got us here at HQ thinking about how we could award something a lot more close to our hearts…shoes! As silly as it sounds, we have decided to rank our favourite shoes, boots and trainers in the first of its kind, the OFFICE Oscars – OFFscars. Cheesy, yes. Unabashed Oscars tie in, yes. Favourite shoes…yes, yes, YES!!!
Without further adieu, the winners of the OFFscars are…(cue drum rolls and applause)

Our favourite Oscars dresses

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

 

We are counting down the days until the Oscars on Sunday. We can’t wait to see whether Leo DiCaprio finally scoops Best Actor, whether J-Law and Nicholas Hoult will walk the red carpet together and of course, who makes the best (and worst) dressed lists.

 

To while away the time while we wait for this year’s Academy Awards, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite ever Oscars dresses. Do you agree with our top picks?

 

Hilary Swank in Guy Laroche

Hilary Swank certainly looked a million dollars in the navy backless Guy Laroche number she wore to pick up her Best Actress Oscar for her role in Million Dollar Baby in 2007. The sleek and sophisticated gown was a far cry from the ball dress style ensembles many Best Actress nominees opt for and propelled Swank to style icon status.

Michelle Williams in Vera Wang

You can always rely on Michelle Williams to wear something quirky and the bright yellow Vera Wang number she modelled at the 2006 Academy Awards was a breath of fresh air. We love the artful draping at the front, the ruffled neckline and the slick of red lipstick Williams finished the look off with.

Natalie Portman in Rodarte

Finding an Oscars dress when you’re pregnant must be a tricky task, but Natalie Portman pulled it off with her usual style and elegance in this stunning Rodarte number. The plum-coloured, off-the-shoulder gown hugged her curves perfectly.

Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford

Gwyneth’s pale pink Ralph Lauren dress, which she wore when she won her Best Actress Oscar often features on best dress lists, but we prefer the icy white Tom Ford gown she wore in 2012. The column style flatters her slender frame and it looked modern and elegant. Plus, who wouldn’t want a dress that comes with its own cape?

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior

Jennifer Lawrence may have fallen out of love with her Dior gown after she tripped up on her way to collect her statuette at last year’s ceremony, but we certainly didn’t. The dramatic pale pink dress oozed Hollywood glamour and made Jen look like a true star. We wonder if she’ll wear something a bit easier to walk in this year though…
