Oscar dresses: who will we copy this year..?

Oscar dresses: who will we copy this year..?

Another fabulous year at the Oscars last night, with stars pulling out all the stops in a stunning array of dresses.

Cameron Diaz dazzled in Oscar de la Renta, vintage glamour accessorised with ruby red lips. I really love her look.

Jennifer Lopez struck gold with a sculptural Armani Privé gown. I like the minimal, simplicity of the dress.

Kristen Stewart looked almost unrecognisable in a sweeping midnight blue Monique Lhuillier gown. The colour is so rich and looks great with her hair and skin tone.

Sarah Jessica Parker channeled Carrie in pale yellow Chanel Haute Couture, complete with a stack of bangles- chic yet modern.

Best Actress winner Sandra Bullock looked gorgeous in a metallic Marchesa gown, it isn’t my favourite outfit, but she looks amazing.

So, who will be the big one to copy this year…?

An article in The Sunday Times yesterday claimed that copycat Oscar dresses would go on sale within a week.

Designers are apparently under pressure to send their new designs, ‘inspired’ by Oscar dresses, to manufacturers around the world by 5.30 am this morning, so the knock-off industry can churn into action to produce replica versions at lighting speed. Sandra is one of the actresses tipped to inspire a copycat frenzy.

Haute Couture houses. such as Chanel and Valentino, are up in arms about the sale of these cut-price knock-offs, saying they will take “vigourous measures” against them. Understandably, they’re annoyed- but I if I was karl Largerfeld I wouldn’t be quaking in my boots just yet, I doubt the Chanel customer would be seen dead in a 200 quid knock-off version.

It will be interesting to see which Oscar dresses get the knock-off vote though. My personal favourite is Cameron Diaz…
