Wedding dress inspirations from the Oscars 2011 looks

Yes, the Oscar fever isn't waning -- and it's here in this blog!

I'm sure aside from anticipating who the winners are (or were, since it's been days after the awards night), people's attention was also on the red carpet, looking at what the stars wore that night. And just like last year, I'm posting amazing dresses on this year's Oscars and wedding gowns that echo the same vibe of what these actresses wore.

Best Actress winner and expectant mom Natalie Portman came in an off-shoulder, empire-waisted purple dress from Rodarte. If you want the same off-shoulder neckline, you can go for Ian Stuart's Costa Rica.

Decolletage -- meaning a really low, revealing, plunging neckline -- became the word of the night as Mila Kunis strutted her stuff on the red carpet wearing an Elie Saab creation. If you're going for the same sexy look, the Clio dress from Jenny Packham will sure make you sizzle as you walk down the aisle.

As one of the hosts for this year's Academy Awards, young style icon Anne Hathaway changed her wardrobe 8 times. Among all of them, the white strapless dress with black beading from the Givenchy Haute Couture caught my attention. The details surely accentuated her lovely figure. You can also get the same effect with this gown from the Demetrios Ultra Sophisticates collection, which also features beading that flatters your waistline.

Fourteen-year-old Hailee Steinfeld made a mark not only for her stellar performance in True Grit but also for donning this beautiful (and age-appropriate) blush-colored Marchesa dress. If, for your wedding day, you want to wear a tea-length dress similar to this, you can choose this style from Sincerity Bridal, which also features the same flowy look.

Helen Mirren looked stunningly regal in her gray Vivienne Westwood dress with 3/4 sleeves. For brides who want to veer away from the usual strapless wedding dress, this Justin Alexander dress with long sleeves exudes the same resplendent look.

I'll be posting more Oscar looks next, so watch out for more. :)
