Colour Inspiration – Fashion at the Oscars!

Hello Everyone!

It has been an exciting week in the world of entertainment with the 88th Academy awards - also known as the Oscars - happening this past Sunday!  Since airing, Instagram & Twitter have been buzzing with chatter around the winners & losers, the quirky speeches & the ever-so anticipated fashion spread. Needless to say, the gorgeous colours on the red carpet caught our eye & we felt these amazing fashion pieces could be celebrated & made into some creative inspo!

So with that in mind & with a little inspiration via last year's post from Brit + Co (where they documented Pantone-approved Colours seen via the gowns of the Oscars), we've create some fabulous colour palettes of our own based on the bright & beautiful dresses seen this year.

While there were tons of wonderful fashion pieces this Sunday, there were a few lovely colours, textures & tones that really stood out! We used the super-fun app Colour Viewfinder to create some fun swatches based on our picks! We think these colour palettes make for some great outfit pairing guides; & if fashion is not your thing, you can always use these beauties for some colour inspiration in your design process!

Below we've put together seven favourites - each actress is listed in order of appearance & we've also included a little fun description of the bright & beautiful colours they're wearing: Reese Witherspoon in perfect purple; Margot Robbie in glamorous gold; Alicia Vikander in a refreshing sunshine yellow; Cate Blanchett in a beautiful pale blue; Olivia Munn in autumnal orange; Brie Larson in a rich, royal blue; Charlize Theron in a ripe apple red!
