Oscars Red Carpet Winners: 4 Dressees To Die For

Posted on February 03 2014

Superbowl is behind us and, as disappointing a game for sheer nail-biting excitement as it was, there's no time to dwell on it. It's Oscar Season! Tinseltown VIP's are making final decisions on red carpet dresses, having their fittings and saying their prayers that the Academy recognizes them this year. But we have other things on our minds. For us, Oscar season means parties, parties, parties! And for some lucky pups, it means a walk down the carpet with their celebrity moms or dads. What to do? We are looking for Oscar red carpet winners and I've found some amazing ones. So, come along and discover 4 dresses to die for this awards season. 

The Diamond Dress

The Diamond Dress  

A true Oscar-worthy gown, this stunning confection is comprised of over 1000 Swarovski crystal elements! The red velvet bodice and the neckline is encrusted with them, followed by a flouncy and flowing 2-tiered red organza ruffled skirt. Wow! This is all custom-made, of course, so you can request what the length of the skirt should be. Which I like. I have a bit of a hard time seeing little dogs with trains. It just looks uncomfortable for the dog to move in. Floor length, for a dog's body, just covers the tail, for me. It looks in proportion and fresh. The Diamond Dress is sophisticated and will take your princess to many a black tie occasion. And, it's hand washable, a plus. Sizes: XS - L    

Blue Tiger

Blue Tiger

This is rock and roll meets runway glamour. I love the edgy aqua and black tiger print croc-patterned Lycra bodice. How can something as comfortable as Lycra for your dog to wear look as fierce as this? Olga Yuditsky of Orostani Couture is a genius at design and fit. Add layers of blue marine, sky blue and black tulle for the crystal embellished asymmetrical skirt, and you'd think, wow! But there's more. Adorning the waistline are four filmy black organza roses, dotted with Swarovski crystals. A truly beautiful creation. Bravo, Olga! Sizes: XXS - XL    

Lavender Brocade

Lavender Brocade 

It's the color of the year, so choosing to highlight a dress in the radiant orchid color family is a must. This beauty is a multimedia event, featuring a lovely floral brocade fabric, backed in comfy cotton flannel (you don't have to let on there's flannel associated with this red carpet-ready piece! :-) ). The flannel backing does give the shape of the dress some staying power. Copious orchid feathers add a glamorous trim to the skirt. A satin ribbon bow with streamers adds some fun and a removable crystal broach centerpiece adds sparkle. Velcro closures at neck and belly. A statement piece. Sizes: XXXS - M, or custom.    

Precious Sapphire

Precious Sapphire

This dreamy piece mixes gorgeous shades of sapphire, magenta and silver tulle to create an ethereal feeling. A full skirt of tulle layers is attached to a very interesting and artistic violet and sapphire knit bodice. Magenta and gold buttons adorn the bodice, along with tufted bits of satin ribbon in accenting colors. A sparkly ribbon bow at the neckline and wrapped satin ribbon in violet and sapphire around the waistline feature little sapphire blue rosettes. A very detailed piece that shows off your pup's This dreamy piece mixes gorgeous shades of sapphire, magenta and silver tulle to create an ethereal feeling.
