Red Carpet Personas feat. Haute Couture Spring 2014

Back on my runway game and I have been studying the haute couture collections like it's a final for my Philosophy class. What I love about this time of the year is the fact that it's a HUGE red carpet season as well, and then I think, is it fate? Do the award shows schedule around the time between Spring Haute Couture? I mean everything should revolve around fashion though, right? 
Thought I might take some of my favorite looks from the haute couture spring 2014 shows that are red carpet worthy (AKA Oscar's worthy, really) and fit them into the categories of the princess, the sexy one, and the risk taker, and I also added in some dresses in there that I just want to know the publics' opinion about. What do you all think?

Always love this category, as out of the three I would put myself in the Princess area (no less from a Disney fanatic). I see that a lot of celebrities love to "experiment" one time or two to wear a huge ball gown and try to remember their glass slipper at the end of the night. The top three selections totally fit the image of this persona but no one is hating. The mix of pinks and purples and draping of the sleeves, from the top left Elie Saab gown is everything of a punk princess, talk about best of both worlds. Aside from the voluminous dresses that define royalty (even though everyone there will be considered that in one way or another), I find that you can still show off your princess look in slim fitting dresses like the ones on the bottom panel. My favorite out of these would be the Oscar de la Renta number on the bottom left that combines a very simple fitting dress with a cape-like style (I think I love capes.)

Oh how I love the standout stars on the red carpet who take it a step further to make an iconic moment for themselves and their stylists. It may not be everyone's cup of tea but I'd love to see someone rock that trench coat dress we got going on from Zuhair Murad; I have faith. Also, let's add another member to cape town (Lupita Nyong'o in Ralph Lauren at the Golden Globes, yes?) with this standout piece from Alexis Mabille (bottom right).  But I have to say, my favorite is the bottom middle pick from Giambattista Valli, I'm a sucker for a voluminous rose colored skirt. 


It's sometimes hard to draw a line off what is appropriate and also sexy on the red carpet, as the Oscar's is a huge event. I felt like appropriate "sexy"was showing just a little bit of skin on the upper-body. All three were some of my general favorites from the season surprisingly, especially the white Vionnet number, love the extra drape atop the belt.

So what do you all think of my red carpet picks from the Haute Couture shows from Spring? Which were your favs? 

Can't wait for the actual day! Who will be tuning in?
