And The Winners Are……The Oscars Brought Architecture, Velvet, Angelic Whites and Mesmerizing Gold to the 89th Annual Ceremony
This night has been on everyone’s minds the past few months, The Oscars. This year’s nominees have been the most diverse and compelling class, it’s pretty much anyones game. You’ve seen the movie trailers, from gut wrenching Fences, Hacksaw Ridge, MoonlightandManchester by the Sea, as well as inspiring tales of NASA’s women representing and inspiring those in the STEM field, even Best Picture winner Moonlight(that misreading will go down in Oscar history) all holding it down for diversity in the film industry.
This class brought style and grace to the 89th Annual Oscars red carpet, from reds and blues to velvet and tulle. The carpet brought on influences of strong architecture, sultry midnight velvets, angelic textured whites and mesmerizing gold. Ladies and gents made us all swoon, gasp, and even check websites for in stock pieces to buy for the Spring and Summer season.
Here, we had our eyes open on the festivities leading up to the opening evening ceremony, with Justin Timberlake bringing sexy back opening the show. I give you, Best Dressed at the 2017 89th Annual Oscars red carpet.
Were your top picks awarded? Anyone snubbed?
Looking forwarded to the 90th Annual ceremony! Maybe you’ll see a familiar face in the crowd or even on stage.
Born in Birmingham and raised in Montgomery, Alabama, Errin Maye somehow always knew she would be in media and entertainment. Coming from a large family of educators, she assumed that was her path, but her mind and heart decided otherwise. From dreams of being a veterinarian to an astronaut, she had always dreamed big and out of the box. During her freshman year at Hoover High School, she stood out in numerous scenes from MTV football series, Two-A-Days. But it wasn’t until after attending the premier of Christopher Nolan’s 2008 filmThe Dark Knight, she would be bitten by the acting bug. While enrolled at The University of Alabama, Errin immersed herself in various fields of art history, computer science, marketing and advertising, and theatre. She has since performed and participated in various acting and media opportunities.
Since graduating, Errin has been living in Texas and worked, as well as partner with major brands and companies, such as Simon Properties, FashionBombDaily, HoustonLife, FedEx, and PaperCity Magazine. Her editorial works have been published in PaperCity Magazine and have brought traffic and success to her personal brand. During her time with PaperCity, she has interviewed many public figures, from entrepreneurs to high-end designers — Edgardo Osorio of Aquazurra to social activist, film and stage icon — Harry Belefonte.
Today, Errin is earning her Masters of Science degree in Publishing from Pace University. She has received academic awards through the Dyson School of Arts and Sciences. After graduation, she hopes to attend USC or NYU to obtain a Masters degree in Digital Humanities. While building upon the Southern Mannor brand and legacy, Errin hopes to break into design and media in the coming years while adding her touch of southern charm every step of the way.
