Last night a costume party ensued at the Phoenix Art Museum as guests paid tribute to their favorite Hollywood characters.  Attendees were able to tour the museum’s incredible costume and red carpet exhibits, enjoy candy with cocktails, and dance the night away.  My costume was inspired by Maverick AKA Tom Cruise in Top Gun.  I styled a flight outfit with lug sole boots, knee-high socks, a black and gold belt, a black leather cap, and Top Gun approved aviators.

The Phoenix Art Museum Hollywood Costume Exhibit is on display until July 6, 2014.  It showcases more than one-hundred iconic costumes in a three-part journey with a backstage feel.  If you’re a fan of the movies you’ll be a huge fan of this exhibit.

As a fashion girl I have to say the Phoenix Art Museum Hollywood Red Carpet Exhibit is where my heart is.  The looks will be in town until July 27th, 2014, and as a lover of the Oscar red carpet it was amazing to see the gowns and dresses not on television or in a magazine, but up close and personal.

This dress was worn by Cate Blanchett at the 77th Academy Awards where she took home the Oscar for best supporting actress in the Aviator. Valentino extended an invitation to design her dress for the big night as he’d always wanted to dress Katherine Hepburn – the character Cate portrayed in the movie.

This gown was worn by Jennifer Lawrence at the 84th Academy Awards after being nominated for best actress in Winter’s Bone.  With only three seams and no darts Costa kept it simple for a red look that would challenge the carpet and make Jennifer Lawrence a household name.

This dress was worn by Jessica Chastain at the 85th Academy Awards after being nominated for best actress in Zero Dark Thirty.  When asked about her dress she said, “As a little girl I always dreamed about my Oscar dress.  I love fashion that celebrates a woman’s body, and that maybe is a throwback to the glamour of Old Hollywood.”

This dress was worn by Amy Adams at the 85th Academy Awards after being nominated for best supporting actress in The Master.  Amy collaborated with Oscar and he created the design after she provided him with a black and white photograph for inspiration.  This dress is truly a beauty and my personal favorite of the red carpet exhibit.
