That red carpet has to be felt to be believed. ~ Willam H. Macy
I decked myself in red for the red carpet today in honor of Harper Ganesvoort’s 7th Annual Oscar Fashion Photo Contest. Every year, Harper honors the Oscars by soliciting photos from around the grid and awarding prizes for the best photos. She is offering more than 50,000L in prizes this year (yeah) with 25,000L going to the first place and money prizes being awarded to the next six. That’s a lot of Oscar gold (and considerably generous for Harper)! The contest runs from January 8 to February 28, and all the details of the contest can be found here.
Needless to say, I will not be entering these “photos” into the contest, but I sure enjoyed Harper’s suggestion we “imagine ourselves on the red carpet at Dolby Theater.” (I am kind of of mixed feeling about combining avatars with RL photos, and I feel guilty as heck for erasing Jennifer Lawrence and Cate Blanchett to put myself in their place.) I thought it was a fabulous way to show off this latex dress from Sienia Trevellion, which is her exclusive at ROMP and is available in two colors. I accessorized with pumps from Glamistry, part of a promotion that I explained in my previous blog entry. I probably should have gotten a piece of jewelry in there too but I was too excited to get this announcement out to find something. Hint: Olaenka Chesnokov has a set of “Premiere” poses at her store.
I was also inspired by Tabata Jewell’s glamorous, almost vintage style for Hairology this round. With rolls on top and a sensuous lock coming to the front, it’s a sort of old-school glam with a rockabilly twist. Umazuma Metaluna’s newest skin for the LeLutka heads, available at Seasons Story, is dressed up with lipstick appliers Uma features in her store and eyeliner from LotusAmbrosa. I thought it looked fabulous on the Ever but will easily play as well on one of the other LeLutka heads.
