Five Top Oscar Looks from Our Hollywood Reporters

Topanga, CA: W magazine calls it hippie chic, CNN calls it Malibu’s hippie cousin, but we refer to the Nordstrom just north and west of Santa Monica as Hollywood’s best dressed secret—especially considering personal stylist Carly Nagel. From her post in the canyon, Carly gets to know the cast and crew who really make the movie magic happen. From set designers and makeup artists to supporting characters, producers, and partners and BFFs of big names, her clients are real girls in a really extravagent world, so when we want to daydream about Oscar outfits and red carpet looks, we go straight to her.

“It’s our favorite time of year, the Super Bowl of fashion!” Carly told us. She’s careful to admit that she doesn’t dress the stars—we all know they have their own stylists who do that—but, she says, “The common denominator of all involved is that everyone wants to feel glamorous and comfortable at the same time.”

We had Carly and her Topanga store cohorts select their five favorite looks from the floor—fitted out with killer heels and hot handbags. The dresses themselves, like the show-stopping red Monique Lhuillier pictured here, aren’t available online, so if you’re actually clutching an invite (lucky you!) or otherwise searching for a perfect party look, please call Carly and company at 818-884-7900, or visit our Designer Eveningwear offerings to see what’s available online.

Otherwise, feel free to join in this spectator sport with us.

What to Wear to the Golden Globes (in Your Dreams or on Your Couch) and Who Would Give the Best Acceptance Speech

Awards season is upon us. Although we are huge movie buffs, we’re even bigger fans of designer evening gowns. As we wait to see what the stars will be wearing to the Golden Globes and Oscars, we’ve set about obsessing over the possibilities with the aid of two Nordstrom Designer Evening Collection buyers, Jennifer Walker and Sahar Sokhandan. They were happy to engage in a fun game of “what if” and “who should wear.”

The Golden Globes (Sunday, Jan. 10 at 8pm ET/5pm PT on NBC) is up first. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s awards show usually serves to indicate who the real Oscar contenders are and also affords celebrities an opportunity to party hard in fancy duds. Here’s what the two buyers are hoping to see happen this year, sartorially speaking, for Amy Schumer, Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence and more.
