Stacy Keibler parted ways with the colorful frocks, which have brought her red carpet success this awards season, and opted for a rose gold Marchesa gown that left one Baltimore fashionista gushing.
"You can't go wrong with Marchesa," said Zoey Washington, head of LittleBird, a Baltimore-based styling and image consulting business for teens. "What's so wonderful about the look is that even if he (George Clooney) doesn't win, he's walking away with a gold trophy."
Keibler, a Baltimore native, who is Clooney's main squeeze, accompanied the best actor nominee in an a symmetrical one-shoulder gown that gathered at the hip with a flowery embellishment. Her long golden mane was pulled to the left side of her head.
"Her hair could have been a bit more sophisticated, but I like how she's transitioned her beachy style to the Oscars," Washington said. "I think no matter what she will remain clean and elegant."
Keibler, a former professional wrestling star, has steadily been building momentum this awards season. She has quickly evolved into a sought-after style canvass through a series of red carpet successes, including a red Valentino gown at the Golden Globes and a black lace Marchesa gown at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Local fashion experts such as Washington have gushed over Keibler's previous red carpet choices. Sunday was no exception.
"Bright colors are for nominees and presenters," Washington said. "As a date you should be a compliment to who you are escorting."
