2015 Oscars

Award season is one of our favorite times of the year here at Page Parkes. It is the realization of so many actors’ dreams, the dreams we strive to assist our talent in achieving. The Oscars are the pinnacle of award season, and we were on the edge of our seats for the entire show. From the show-stopping gowns to the incredible musical performances, the dapper gentlemen to the tear-jerking acceptance speeches, this year was certainly one for the record books!

We even recognized a couple of familiar faces from Page Parkes, including Channing Tatum looking stunning with his wife Jenna, and Jaime King, who has the cutest accessory...a baby bump!

One of our favorite things, when it comes to the Oscars, is the red-carpet looks. This year, the actresses made some truly magical choices, and astounded us with their gowns. We noticed that certain trends emerged this season, including but not limited to, a bevy of white, red, and nude gowns.

White gowns are now no longer just for weddings, as proven by these gorgeous actresses, who dazzled the nation in classic, white frocks! While each gown was white, they all comprised unique details that helped take these dresses to the next level. From thousands of pearls, to contrasting black detailing, we certainly will not be forgetting these looks any time soon!

Lupita Nyong in Calvin Klein, Reese Witherspoon in Tom Ford, Marion Cotillard in Dior, and Julianne Moore in Custom Chanel.

White was not the only color trend we saw this award season. These beauties demonstrated the correct way to work a red gown, and on the red carpet no less, which is never easy! From strapless to one shoulder, thigh-high slits to sheer paneling, these leading ladies looked flawless in their figure-flattering ensembles.

Giuliana Rancic in Mireille Dagher, Dakota Johnson in Saint Laurent, Rosamund Pike in Givenchy, Behati Prinslee in Armani.

Certainly not to be forgotten are the sleek, nude gowns pictured below, which accented these celebrities’ skin tones perfectly. While each gown is incredibly unique, they all shared in flawlessly accentuating these actresses’ waists. The various style lines, textures, and necklines helped propel these muted gowns to the next level, and they certainly succeeded in wowing us!

Zoe Saldana in Versace, Kerry Washington in Miu Miu, Jennifer Lopez in Elie Saab, Jennifer Aniston in Versace, and Oprah Winfrey in Vera Wang.

Lastly, but certainly not least, congratulations are in order to the actors, actresses, screenwriters, and all of the teams that put so much effort, time, and love into the films that were nominated this year. These movies were certainly works of art, which inspired, and motivated thousands of individuals.

Congratulations to Eddie Redmayne on winning Best Actor for his role in The Theory of Everything. His portrayal of Stephen Hawking was truly exceptional, inspiring, and an honor due to such an incredible man.

Congratulations to Julianne Moore; she certainly deserved her Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress for her role in Still Alice. Julianne's performance in this film was authentic, inspirational, and eye-opening to the vicious disease of Alzheimer’s.

Finally, congratulations to the entire team of Birdman, which was not only nominated for nine Oscars, but succeeded in winning a staggering four awards, including Best Motion Picture of the Year!

See you on the Red Carpet again next year!
