Below, I've compiled a few infographics with Oscar-inspired fashion from J. Law, Sandra Bullock and Lupita Nyang'o. While some of the dresses below may be expensive, imagine how much one of those couture gowns costs! But really, the dresses below are only meant to serve as further inspiration. I chose the looks of these three leading ladies because, while they are stunning, they also seemed a bit more accessible than some of the other ensembles I saw. And with wedding season coming up, why not get a few ideas for your outfit from the Academy Awards?
Sandra Bullock's midnight blue dress was timeless but striking. She embraced Hollywood glamor not only with her gown, but with her curls and smoky eyes. She kept everything else perfectly simple, which is what I would have done too if I were nominated for Best Actress.

I think this is one of the best looks J. Law has sported in a while. The color was perfect for her complexion, she had a little peplum going on -- but not too much -- and that wind swept hair! It made me want to cut my own tresses, but only for a moment.

Last, but not least, I think we can all thank Lupita Nyang'o for proving that icy blue dress attire CAN be sophisticated and beautiful. I thought my window for sporting this hue closed after my last prom but I was wrong, wrong, wrong. SO WRONG. And the headband! THE HEADBAND! YES!
