"The red carpet so far this season has been two poles really. Very graphic; black, white or monochrome and sleek. Like Julianne Moore in Tom Ford at the Golden Globes or Anne Hathaway in Chanel," says Louise.
Louise Roe, TV Presenter and fashion journalist, is our next London Lives girl (launching next week), so when we shot and interviewed Louise a few weeks ago on a cold January's day, we took the opportunity to tap into her wealth of awards season expertise. As an LA-dwelling Brit who will be covering tonight's Oscars for NBC's Access Hollywood, Louise was perfectly placed to guess what frocks we might be seeing on the red carpet tonight.
"But then there’s been this whole ethereal fairytale thing like Julianne Hough and Bernice Bejo," she continues. "They’ve been wearing multi-layered princess skirts and sequins everywhere. So I think these two different looks are the two main trends to expect at the Oscars."
"Oh, and loads of blush," adds Louise, "but I’m not sure anyone will do that at the Oscars because it’s been done already at the Globes. I love the colour blush, though, I think it’s very elegant".
