The Oscars 2017

Another Oscars ceremony has come and gone (with much controversy – we may add!) but here at Joel & Son Fabrics we’re only truly interested in one element – the dresses.

Here are our favourite looks from The Oscars 2017.

VIOLA DAVIS

Best Supporting Actress winner Viola Davis stunned in a custom coral Armani Privé silk crêpe gown. The term 'less is more' comes to mind - a simple fabric with a phenomenal drape in a stunning colour does all the talking.

CHARLIZE THERON

Charlize Theron was going for gold in a Grecian style lamé dress by Dior. Pleats and pleats of gold lamé layered with black chiffon are used to create this two-tone effect gown. Cleverly cinched in at the waist to create a gorgeous silhouette. Lamé & chiffon are light, floaty fabrics allowing the dress to float seamlessly as you walk.
