Top Oscar Fashion Picks

Watching the Oscars Red Carpet is almost as exciting as the actual telecast. We’re suckers for fashion.

Here’s our best dressed picks from last night’s awards ceremony.

Anne Hathaway had seven costume changes during the show but we just love her red carpet ensemble.  She radiated in a red gown by Valentino.

Scarlett Johansson looked fabulous in Dolce & Gabbana.  We’re also digging the tousled hair.

Oh to be 14 years old and be nominated for an Oscar…Hailee Steinfeld is so darling in Marchesa.

Here’s another great Marchesa number worn by past Oscar winner Halle Berry.

Last but not least, Best Actress winner Natalie Portman was glowing in her Rodarte dress, we just love the color on her.

On the fence:

We’re having a love/hate reaction to both Mila Kunis’ and Cate Blanchett’s gowns.  Cate Blanchett (right) is usually number one on my best dressed lists but I can’t make my mind up over her Givenchy Couture dress.  We do love Cate’s forward fashion taste.  Mila Kunis’s lilac Elie Saab gown…too sexy?  Too much like a dress made of lace curtains?  How do you feel about these dresses?

Dawn Maize sandal in March’s Foam mag!

Spring has sprung…well at least in our hearts. We’re so looking forward to warmer weather and our Spring 2011 collection will be in stores as early as next week! Check out our new style, Dawn Maize on the pages of the March issue of Foam Magazine featuring singer Lykke Li.

Get a pair of Dawn sandals before everyone else at Moxsie First!

She & Him | Don’t Look Back

She & Him
‘s sophomore album Volume Two came out last year and we immediately fell in love with the song and video for “In the Sun.” The duo has treated us to another sweet video for “Don’t Look Back.”  There’s a choreographed dance number, a glossy set full of stylish Danish modern furniture, and Zooey Deschanel in cute vintage outfits.   The video is directed by Jeremy Konner – enjoy!

NYFW is over! | Top Five NYFW Looks

Previewing new collections and attending shows during fashion week is thrilling and inspiring.  My first runway show experience was at Tara Subkoff’s Imitation of Christ in 2005, and it was just amazing.

This season, 80%20 was very excited to work with jewelry line DANNIJO and American sportswear line Porter Grey for New York Fashion Week!

With the close of fashion week, we put together some of our favorite looks from the runway.


This season, the Mulleavy sisters created a “modern Little House on the Prairie wardrobe that would make romantic fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder swoon.”  Go to for more images and commentary.  We just adore this look…the high-waisted teal trouser, side swept hair, and the cut-out detail of the blouse are to die for.

Marc by Marc Jacobs

What’s not to love about Marc by Marc Jacobs?  This collection featured sophisticated 70′s discoteque meets 40′s glam.  I need jade green in my wardrobe! We also dig the fact that instead of just using animal prints (ie. leopard, zebra), Jacobs featured prints of tiny animals!  LOVE.  Click through to to see more.

Karen Walker

The British working class was the inspiration behind the collection with a 90s sensibility. The models wore tiny black beanie hats with a palette of black, navy, grey, dusty rose outfits.  We particular like this floral ensemble.  For more images, go here.

Proenza Schouler

For Fall 2011,  inspired by a road trip they took to Santa Fe and Native American blankets, designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez hit the computers to design their own prints.  Doesn’t every girl want Proenza Schouler items?  Don’t even get me started on their PS. 1 bags.

Designer Eviana Hartman of Bodkin had her first fashion week presentation this year.  We love the clean and sophisticated looks that are so easy to integrate into your day to day wear.  It’s also worth mentioning Bodkin’s commitment to utilizing eco friendly fabrics.
