I like to think that if I were ever to be awarded an Oscar for goodness-knows-what, or famous enough just to be walking the red carpet, I would stick to my roots. We talked about wearing a Free People gown to awards shows here, and I’d love to dress this simple number up with a nautical statement necklace and some signature gold bangles.

I don’t think I’m alone in admitting that half of the reason I watch awards shows is for the fashions. I’m so excited to see all of the gorgeous dresses that rock the red carpet this Sunday at the Academy Awards, and equally as excited to be linking up with long distance loving for an Oscar’s-themed Friday’s Fancies!
When my style icon Kate Middleton stopped in Hollywood as a part of her North American tour last summer, I couldn’t wait to see what she wore to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts celebration. Stepping out in a lavender Alexander McQueen, she exceeded any expectations I had. I knew at that moment, that if I ever had the chance to walk down that red carpet, I would choose to wear something pretty dang similar…
