Wedding gowns: Get inspiration from the red carpet, part 1

I know the Oscars has been held weeks ago. It's just that, looking at photos of the stars in their best, I knew I had to post this because I believe there are a lot of women who also look into what famous people are wearing and make them as their basis for choosing a wedding gown design. So without further ado, here are some of the most gorgeous looks during the Oscar night and how these creations can be the foundation of your dream bridal wear.

First up is the Marchesa dress worn by this year's Best Actress in the Academy Awards, Sandra Bullock. The top portion had bead and lace appliques that served as beautiful accents to her gold gown. For your wedding you can also wear something similar, like the Oleg Cassini wedding gown (left) which also has appliques plus a coordinating lace jacket. With this, you can create two looks in one -- it's a winner!

Another look I loved was this one-shoulder Badgley Mischka dress worn by Queen Latifah. Jeweled accents and a trumpet silhouette -- another winner in my book. A style that looked closely to it is the Fiori gown from Maggie Sottero. Almost the same cut and design, perfect for romantic brides.

I guess one of the gowns that gained much attention was the one Cameron Diaz wore, made by Oscar de la Renta. Shining from top to bottom, it really is a scene stealer. If you want a bridal gown that puts you in the spotlight, the Lazaro gown with bead and embroidery details will truly make you the queen of the night -- because that's what you should be on your big day.

Fresh and simple is how I can describe Amanda Seyfried in her Armani Prive ballgown-style dress. If that's your bridal style, you can go with the Alfred Angelo wedding gown on the left, which has the same silhouette and classic design.

Jennifer Lopez also came in an Armani Prive, with a dress something similar to Amanda's but with a little more edge, thanks to the side train. Trains are indeed one of the highlights of a wedding gown, and if you want a more fancy design, the Malena gown by Pronovias will surely be a great choice.

These are just some of the red carpet dresses that got my attention. There's more Oscar looks on the next post, so stick around!
