FROM RUNWAY TO RED CARPET, FEATHERED DRESSES THAT DIDN'T MAKE THE CUT

FROM RUNWAY TO RED CARPET, FEATHERED DRESSES THAT DIDN’T MAKE THE CUT. We were thrilled to see Hollywood starlets flaunt their designer gowns down the red carpet, as many of you were eagerly waiting for who was going to win the Oscar. While all of the gowns were amazingly beautiful, Feathered Gowns were noticeably missing from the Oscars red carpet.

Here are a few of our favorite NYFW Fall/Winter 2015 designer feathered gowns we wished we would have seen on Oscar night.

Our picks have striking feather details that add glamour and drama. The designers that we have chosen incorporated Ostrich Fringe, Stripped Coque Feathers and Goose Nagorie Feathers in their designs to create these gorgeous gowns.

Designs featured are from Christian Siriano, Alice and Olivia, Rodarte, Elie Saab, Bibhu Mohapatra, Carolina Herrera , Marchesa and Nicole Miller .

Carnival and Mardi Gras 2015

Drum queen Juliana Alves from the Unidos da Tijuca samba school - Carnival and Mardi Gras 2015

Carnival & Mardi Gras is one of the few times during the year where the upper, middle and lower class come together in one place to splurge on themselves with marvelous feather costumes making their fantasies come true. They personify themselves as kings, queens and “Bahianas” to obtain hope and the pursuit of happiness for that one day. A variety of Carnival Designers, seamstresses, mechanical engineers, theater producers, artists, choreographers, samba communities, musicians and TV celebrities all engage and exchange ideas to turn each of their own school into the most spectacular popular street opera show of the year.

Lights, camera and action. The popular street opera from Rio de Janeiro begins!  The drums, the samba, the poetry and gorgeous feathers agitated Sapucai Avenue.

Despite all of the recent economical and political crisis the country has been going through, the samba schools stepped out of their comfort zones .  They were able to utilize limited resources to deliver some of the most amazing richly designed and highly crafted feather costumes created by the samba communities and designers from around the globe.
