Watching Fashion Police: The 2013 Academy Awards got me thinking about how these fashions will influence interiors in the months to come. Here’s a look at some of the dresses and the trends we hope to see emerging from them:
Charlize Theron’s very minimal Dior was controversial. Most commentators hated it but I loved it; it was very appropriate considering that the futuristic sci-fi she starred in, Prometheus, was nominated for awards:
The dress looks like a paper origami sculpture on top. Perhaps it will bring back origami birds:

Nominee Naomi Watts and Halle Berry both donned very futuristic dresses. Photos do not do Berry’s Versace justice; the coolest thing about it was the way it moved, especially on stage in the spotlights. Naomi’s silvery gray Armani may have taken a cue from the popular interior color, with fashion following home design. I think its chair counterpart is a timeless tulip chair in platinum:
The Fashion Police crew unanimously voted for Jennifer Lawrence as Best Dressed. Perhaps it was a sympathy vote for this moment? The Dior couture dress is the opposite of Theron’s, and clearly was not at all functional. I think she’s an amazing actress and seems like she’s completely natural and down to earth, unlike that other winning actress, but the only way I’d adapt this dress to interior design is via a vase full of white peonies.

Reese Witherspoon went for a retro glam royal blue Louis Vuitton stunner. The color is also a fashion favorite of the Obama ladies. Are our interiors ready for royal blue? While turquoise and teal have been having their moments as of late, we haven’t been seeing royal in interiors as much. I think it’s high time. if you’re not ready walls saturated in royal, try a sofa like this one:
