There were not a lot of favorite standouts for me this Oscar season, as I liked the looks at the after parties more. Here’s what I did like… When I saw the gown, I thought of the song “Blue Velvet.” Taraji looked elegant and sexy at once. Not many can pull that off. Oscar winner Stone with her flapper inspired gold, Swarovski crystal-embroidered gown, gave a real nod to vintage Hollywood with her Veronica Lake type curls and red lipstick. Very fitting considering her winning performance was from the modern day classic La La Land!
