Betsy Bloomingdale: American socialite and philanthropist Betsy Bloomingdale (who looks fabulous at 92!) attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in this beautiful red silk gazar gown. Ms. Bloomingdale is known for wearing Couture and is a big Couture client so I would LOVE to know who the designer of this gown is so if there's anyone out there who might know this: tell me! It's very vintage Oscar de la Renta-meets-Givenchy (the REAL Hubert de Givenchy!). Whoever designed this, it's beautiful.

Joan Collins: Joan "Dynasty" Collins attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in a black gown with gold and red sequined applique. She looked every bit a DIVA in this gown. I also loved the gathered and slightly pouf'ed up cap of her sleeves--giving a "hint" to her 80's "Dynasty" shoulder padded days. She looked fabulous. Of course. Doyenne Chic.

Jane Fonda: Jane "Jealous of my body" Fonda looked AMAZING in this Zuhair Murad Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015 sequined gown at the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. I said so HERE. I. Love. Her. Some women her age just "give up" when it comes to fashion and especially at big events such as this. But gotta love Miss Jane, she can compete with the youngumms!! And Beat them at their Red Carpet game!

Heidi Klum in Atelier Versace Spring/Summer 2015--2015 Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party


Heidi Klum attended last night's 2015 Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party wearing a silver sequined with see-through paneled gown from Atelier Versace Spring/Summer 2015 collection. The gown featured a side draped cowl top section attached to a column skirt section. Notice that on the runway--on Brazilian supermodel Isabeli Fontana--the see-through panels/sequined section in the front is much thinner and more "exposing". On Heidi, those front sections were done to cover her more. I think that was a wise design move.

Trend Alert: See Through Ladies 

Besides Gigi Hadid and Irina Shayk, several other ladies wore see-through dresses to the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party and here we have...

Rita Ora in a black matte jersey and black see-through chiffon gown from Donna Karan Atelier. Donna Karan Atelier is the more "Custom/Couture" arm of the brand, only for stars and for the red carpet. In other words, don't bother finding any of these dresses at any Donna Karan store, online, or wherever.

Rita Ora in Donna Karan Atelier--2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party--As you can see from above, you've got to be BOLD, BRAVE and be cool with going underwear-less to pull off this style of a gown. I like the front but I admit that the back is TASTELESS and too Tacky-Hoochie (since when is seeing half your butt chic??!!)

Lily Collins in Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Ready To Wear--2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party--Lily does See Through much better (and tasteful) than Rita did. Here, Collins wears a black sequined gown from Zuhair Murad (yes, him AGAIN!! I told you his atelier and press department were busy!) Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear. I love the hint of tuxedo with the satin lapels. It's modern, a bit Victor/Victoria and still glam enough for a Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

Malin Akerman--2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party--Malin also did the See-Through trend wearing this black lace sequined gown with a plunging neckline and under-bodysuit.

Kelly Lynch--2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party--Kelly Lynch combined satin and see-through in the style she wore at the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party seen above. The style is a bit of a mish-mash; there is a bubble mini skirt under an over dress in panel like shapes, there's pockets, then there's a spiderweb-like lace top...and a black bikini bra top under it all. Not sure about it all.

What do you guys think?
Who did See Through Trend better?

 Irina Shayk in Atelier Versace Spring/Summer 2015--2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party


Another design house that was VERY busy last night--and all this past week!--was the House of Versace. They flew in an entire team of seamstresses and tailors to help accommodate all the fittings and all the actresses and supermodels who would be wearing their $50,000+ couture frocks for the Academy Awards and Oscars parties. Russian Supermodel and Cristiano Ronaldo's ex, Irina Shayk, wore a very sexy and revealing gown from Atelier Verscae Spring/Summer 2015 at the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscars Viewing Party.

Sans Panties: The gown features a black silk cady overdress with attached black sequined bodysuit underneath. I have NO IDEA how one gets into this style of a gown (a side or back zip??) but I am sure those Italian seamstresses/tailors/pattern makers figured it out. The gown is completely hand made and every single crystal is also sewn on by hand. Oh, and yes, you cannot wear underwear with this gown.

Sofia Vergara in Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Ready To Wear--2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party


Sofia Vergara wore a lilac sequined gown from Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad (that atelier was BUSYYYYYY!!!) and his Ready-to-Wear Spring 2015 collection. Originally--in the designer's Look Book, the gown had straps and was unlined. For Sofia, the straps were removed and made into a strapless gown and a matching color lining was added. I think she looked great and this was a very pretty gown. It was obviously made for her and her size and fit her quite nice.

Jane Fonda in Zuhair Murad Haute Couture Spring 2015--2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party


Diva-licious. Oh Jane Fonda. I ADORE you! 77 year-old Hollywood (and workout) Legend Jane Fonda gave women half her age a run for their COUTURE money as she attended last night's 2015 Vanity Fair Oscars Viewing Party. Fonda wore this beautiful sequined Zuhair Murad Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015 jumpsuit. The jumpsuit--as shown on the runway model was not lined but on Jane--the Lebanese designer's atelier added a creme/nude strapless lining dress underneath--for modesty of course. Jane's hair and makeup were perfection and age appropriate...

And take a close-up look at all those hand-sewn sequins, crystals and paillettes...INCREDIBLE craftsmanship on this Couture gown. Oh, and yes, I also LOVE that ring!

Gigi Hadid in Atelier Versace Spring/Summer 2015--2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

"Celebrity" Supermodel--and SUPERgirl of the Moment, Gigi Hadid attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Viewing Party in a black gown from Atelier Versace Spring/Summer 2015 collection. The gown was worn on the runway by another Supermodel--the one and only Amber Valletta. The silk cady black column gown features curved lines (a theme of that collection) and tansparent illusion insets. It's completely sewn by hand, since it's Atelier Versace, the Haute Couture arm of the brand.

Gigi's hair and makeup were model perfect. Of course.
