I know that I’m not alone when I admit to loving the red-carpet pre-show of award shows and especially the Oscars.  It’s fun to see our favorite celebrities all dressed up, hear what they’re wearing, who they are excited to see and meet, etc.  Watching the celebrities interact with entertainment news makes them a little more accessible.  Every year we pick our favorite looks and misses along with shows like Fashion Police.   This year featured gorgeous head-to-toe sparkles which is very much on trend for 2013, soft pale ball gowns, and classic vintage glam.

I personally love to imagine how and where I might translate some of these gowns and tuxedos.  The 2013 Oscars included many stunning looks perfect for a wedding.  Here are my favorite Oscars Inspired Wedding looks from the 2013 Oscars Red Carpet:

Jessica Chastain in a glam Armani Prive, perfect nod to old Hollywood.  Paired with White and Gold.  Wedding has an art deco inspiration; I love how the gold lines on the wedding cake match the sparkle lines on Jessica’s gown.
