BellaNaija Weddings presents BN Bridal Inspiration from the 89th Annual Academy Awards | #Oscars2017



Chrissy Teigen & John Legend

Everyone that means anything (and I mean anything at all) in Hollywood prepares for many months beforehand to be seen and hosted at the Annual Academy Awards, so today, we will be celebrating our favorite bridal and reception dress inspirations from the just concluded Oscars 2017 red carpet & Vanity Fair after party (read all about it here and here).

Here, let’s have a look

For the Subtle Bride

Go white or go ivory, but make sure your dress is very accentuating and flattering and your accessories do a lot of the talking.  It is your wedding day, you definitely want to make sure that you have everyone’s attention the whole time!

Ruffles and florals in cooler hues of primary colors are perfect as they work to create a glowy look for your skin tone, making you wedding reception-ready.

Brillant infusion of mixed fabrics with shades of nudes will ultimately create the perfect bridal reception look for the subtle bride as no other color says subtle like the nudes! So that been said, here are the Oscar outfit inspirations below

Darby Stanchfield

Priyanka Chopra

Kiersey Clemons

Chrissy Teigen

Hailee Steinfeld

Felicity Jones

Giuliana Rancic

Jaime Dornan & Amelia Warner

Demi Lovato

For the Preggie Bride:

Being pregnant never stopped anyone from looking or feeling good so why start now! If you are a pregnant bride, then opt for styles that are very comfortable and definitely easy to walk in.

Feel free to tastefully let some boobs show while infusing your personal sense of style too. Look at how Ciara and Rosie did it, and be inspired!


Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

For that “extra extra” Bride

If you like all things extra then we have got you covered from the Oscars too. Please note that ladies somehow miss the mark with this one, so the trick is to remember to keep the rest of the look; makeup and hair simple but chic.

Go for shimmer infused pieces and shine even brighter throughout the evening. Red is definitely a winner! Just go for shades and hues that compliment your skin tone.

    Notice how all the ladies aren’t wearing wristwatches and heavy accessories. No fake weaves either, very simple makeup. Naija babes and their MUAs better learn.
