The most Oscar-worthy dresses from the Haut Couture shows 

Why haute couture for the Oscars? Because a great dress functions much like a great movie role: It shows a willingness to take risks, creates a unique character, and transports the audience to another time and place. In other words, enough with the strapless fishtail numbers. Here, Vogue picks the couture looks we think would make a lasting impression on the Oscars red carpet February 26. Check out the all of the dresses here.


The Glitter Guide

The Glitter Guide: How to Layer Necklaces

When selecting necklaces to layer, I like to play with different colors, textures, and lengths while highlighting one unifying element in each piece. In this example, I used a total of 5 gold, metal-based necklaces of varying lengths and gauges (chunkiness) to create a full, draping bib necklace. When placing them around my neck, I adjusted the length of each necklace so that the look is more dense towards the face and more sparse as it gets longer. This draws the eye up and keeps the real drama near your face. Read the full article from Tara here.
