What team FQ would wear to the Oscars

FEATURE

While we kept a watchful eye on the Oscar 2016 red carpet arrivals, we couldn’t help but wonder what we would wear should we ever get the chance to grace the red carpet.

Straight from the catwalk, team FQ pick their dream Oscar ensembles…

“When it comes to style, I definitely err on the more casual side for my day to day wardrobe. I love that this Alberta Ferretti gown has a really relaxed silhouette to suit my easy breezy vibe, but is made red carpet-ready thanks to the luxe fabric and beautiful craftsmanship”

“The most perfect greige colour with just the right amount of sheerness and a slight flared sleeve that falls past the knuckles. This embellished Elie Saab number fills all my real life princess dreams. I’d be pinning this image to my private wedding themed Pinterest board, if I had one of course.”

“If I’m going to be walking the Oscars red carpet, I would want to be doing it in the safe hands of Karl Lagerfeld. End of.”

“I love the off-the-shoulder neckline of this Marchesa gown – so on trend and, most importantly, infinitely more flattering than anything strapless (cos let’s face it, when all those flashbulbs are poppin’ off ain’t nobody got time to think about upper-arm positioning).This whole look really speaks to me though. Specifically, the part of me that likes to dress like I’m going to a really chic funeral, possibly of someone I’ve murdered in cold blood. It brings a lot of drama without being attention-seeking and IMO that’s what you want at the Oscars. Just make mine an open-toe stiletto.”

“I find men’s formal wear quite limiting and restrictive, I love how Gucci have tried something different with the silhouette.”
