Since so many of us look to the Oscars for a yearly guide of glamor, I wanted to help you find your style by giving you a Designers perspective on why these looks worked so well. The stars were out tonight for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards and I must say, some of the dresses were simply amazing. Although I was a bit disappointed that I didn’t see many of the seasons newest colors that I was anxiously anticipating, there were some dresses that achieved awards all on their own. These are my picks for this glamorous night of fashion.
Jennifer Lawrence was one of my favorites. I will definitely be designing my own version of her dress this year for Jackie’s Boutique Couture Collection. Her red gown with a low scooped bustline and fitted silhouette by Calvin Klein is simply elegant. Casual golden waves and dramatic eyes finishes off the look. This is simple yet such a classically elegant Oscar look. You can wear a dress like this for a black tie or cocktail event if you shorten the hemline. Just make sure that you wear the right foundation garments of you may turn out more than intend to.
Another look that I adore is Nancy O’Dell in brilliant Aqua. Thank you for celebrating one of Springs new colors. It’s well known that celebrities are frightful of being fashion forward and tend to go with the traditional black, white and red hues but I am so excited by this color. Don’t you just love blonds in blues? Plus the design is extravagant! The dress drapes across the bodice with a different take on a one shoulder style. Nancy wears her hair in a loose up-do showing off her shoulders. She has really modernize the look showing us that balance can be achieved for evening with dropped earrings on a bare shoulder. Lovely pose as well.
Hillary Swank in Gucci. Need I say more? Hillary never disappoints me. She has really established her own personal style and this amazing gown is beyond glamorous. Not only does she embody what a confident woman should be, she carries herself with a calm elegant grace that she has matured into over the years. I’m obsessed with the shadow effect of feathers on her train. Hillary has such a beautiful body for strapless fitted silhouettes and her coloring suits a soft pastel palette. This is not the first grey dress that she has worn well but when you find a look that works, stick with it.
Jennifer Hudson was showing off her new svelt figure in Red Versace. Not the usual Versace either. Although the wrapping silhouette looks Versace, the full train is much like Oscar or Gucci. As you can see, this gown had everything a woman wants in a jaw dropping Oscar look from a hot shot of color to stunning design. The dress works because it’s not to heavy on top and the ruched a-symmetrical waistline gives her curves a feminine sexy presence. Even though there is a lot going on with this dress, it’s well balanced because it’s not top heavy. One rule to live by when you wear a dress with this much presence, don’t wear your hair down. It’s all about looking statuesque and elegant.
I have so many looks that I intend on reviewing for you over the next few days but I have to show you this dress. It’s a favorite of mine and is already inspiring me to design more lace for my collection. Mila Kunis from Black Swan has another stunning fashion night in this romantic lilac lace gown with gorgeous sweetheart bustline by Elie Saab. (Elie Saab is a self-trained Lebanese fashion designer who launched his Beirut based fashion label when he was 18 years old. He now has fashion workshops in Lebanon, Paris and Milan.) The bodice is framed with folds of fabric and lace. The length floats to the floor and moves when she walk with the illusion of leg. Blonds or brunettes will wear this color well and it’s perfect for Mila’s coloring.

I’m entering a pageant this year and I want a swimsuit that balances my figure. The problem is I have a small bust so my lower half looks hippy when I wear swimsuits. What style will balance out my figure and what colors look great on stage? Jessica – TX
So many of my clients have the same issue. Even if you are in terrific shape, it’s hard to look balanced when you have a smaller bust. Years ago I worked hard designing my own mold for the perfect enhancer bra. The cup has built in padding with a special material that molds to your shape as you wear it. We make the bra with hook back closures, tie backs and a cute strappy version that has open sides. For a pageant, I would recommend the hook back closure version in angel kiss white or brilliant turquoise if you have a tan, a clear red for blondes or beautiful Miami Mango hologram. All these colors photograph and stage well. For the bottom, you’ll need the California cut. It’s a bikini bottom that is especially designed for competition and active lifestyles. The bottom is high cut so it elongates the leg with a thin side and moderate coverage. The flattering scoop is carefully planned to make the tummy appear flatter and the back is specially shaped so it won’t slip when you walk. Good luck in the pageant.

The art of finding the ideal swimsuit is all about enhancing your body’s best assets and hiding figure flaws. At www.JackiesBoutique.com.com we offer you personal shoppers to help you choose the best style, size and fabric for your figure type. We want every one of our clients to feel sexy and look great in their bathing suit. All you have to do is contact our design studio by email at Jackie@jackiesboutique.com .
I have always focused on designing swimsuits that create youthful support for both small and large cup sizes. Woman with larger cups have common problem areas such as needing more coverage on the side of the bust, under the arms and support. In fitting hundreds of clients over the years, I have designed several styles that have helped these woman look beautiful and feel comfortable in their Bathing suits.
These are my favorite designs recommended for large bust sizes.
This shape offers lift and support to create a flattering silhouette. The tie back will work if you don’t have really large bust but for large D and DD cup sizes, I recommend ordering the bra with a hook back closure. The mold is patented and a special design that carefully shapes with a very thin pad that prevents gaping and sagging.
Contour Classic Bra-
Fits alot like the Classic Bra but as you can see has more bust coverage in the cleavage area and under arms. The bra has wireless underwire a patented light shape cup lifts and supports a D and DD bra cup. You can customize it also with over the shoulder straps. I am loving how happy this bra has made my clients that just needed a little but more that the classic bra offered.
Ring Front Halter Bra-
This sexy shape offers a comfortable alternative to the regular halter bras. The tie back is adjustable to fit any band size and the ring front offers just the right amount of shaping yet still hides most of the bust yet shows a hint of cleavage.
Full Coverage Halter bra-
A bra that is truly full coverage. The shape is designed to minimize a large bust size without to much pushup. The strong hook back closure offers great support and the stretch halter ties allow you to adjust the neckline and create a more flattering silhouette.
See you at the beach!

It is so important to make sure that your wearing the right hair for your face. It’s just not enough to have a great cut and color, you need to be very careful about the style. Julia Stiles demonstrates the difference a hair cut can make. The actress popped by a Lacoste party in New York City debuting her new ‘do of flirty bangs and straight locks but it just ages this beautiful young woman. Her earlier look of soft face framing waves makes her not only look younger but casually sexy. Her face shape is way to round for bangs and flat straight hair. Be careful girls. Not all hair trends are for everyone.

Season to season, I look forward to changing up my beauty routine just as much as my wardrobe. This means that soon I will be shedding my winter dark shadows and lips for a palette of spring-appropriate hues. And I am so ready! My pre-spring picks that are going into my makeup bag for the upcoming months are from NARS. It’s never a dull moment from NARS and they are offering that youthful glow this year. I am enjoying their selection of tote worthy must haves. These are my favorite picks that I won’t be leaving home without.
1) NEW! Femme Fatale eyes with epic effects. The super-fine precision tip of this liquid eyeliner allows for maximum control during application, ensuring a precise, even line with just one stroke.
2) Chunky crayons infused with transparent color and subtle glitter. May be used to subtly
accent, highlight and illuminate the skin. The subtle glitter suspended in translucent color is ideal for eyes, cheeks and body. Layer or use alone to illuminate eyes and skin. I love how the light reflects off this product in photos. It’s an anti-aging secret used by models and makeup artists all over the world.
3) I don’t like having to spend extra mirror time during my busy day. This little product keeps my look intact all day long. No smudging, creasing or caking. The NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base is the insider trick of the trade. Never looking heavy-handed, this lightweight eye primer creates a seamless canvas that keeps cream and powder color looking brilliant, fresh and just-applied, all day.
