With the Oscars now over, we mark the end of a very eclectic award-show season, which was full of interesting Red Carpet looks!!

But have you ever wondered what all  goes into making these red carpet looks phenomenal ?

Getting the best dress for the Red carpet is literally like a a contest based on your popularity.

No Kidding !!!

Your chance of wearing a high end desirable luxury outfit is directly proportional to your popularity quotient ; for example- Are they an “A” list celeb , Are they attending a popular award night or invited to a show popular enough to grab eye balls? . Are they getting any magazine covers ?

Only if you are able to meet the above mentioned criterias is when the designer agrees on loaning their beautiful, couture outfit !! Yes you got that right.. “Loaning” . None of the celebrities buy their red carpet outfits, the outfits they wear are basically the original samples created by the designers which go out on loan to the celebrity and are later returned to the fashion house. Just to simplify things for you they are known as “Press Samples”

















And now if you are wondering why are the designers so kind to lend their peace of couture , It’s simply because having a dress featured on the red carpet, particularly one that attracts media attention, is very important to a designer.

Believe it or not “The dollar return of having some celebrity shot in your dress is worth a fortune, more than a five-page spread in Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar”


Shocking isn’t it ? But That’s how it works!!

Now that you’ve got a spiel on “How the Red Carpet Dressing Funda works” Let’s have a look at who wore what at the 86th Academy Awards !!

We are sure now you all will be able to analyse the recent Oscar 2014 red carpet looks in a different light 😉
