Oscars Best Actress Dresses Infographic Now A Poster!

You might remember back in February, we tweeted an infographic featuring every Oscar winning best actress's dress since 1929. Our post was retweeted over 500 times in two days and the infographic went internationally viral. Shared by Vogue, Cosmo, Grazia, Stylist, Yahoo, many American publications and hundreds of thousands to millions of people. Basically, it blew up!

Demand grew for the infographic to be made into a poster, and so its creators set to work on making that happen.

Well... we are SO excited to reveal that Love Miss Daisy is the first UK retailer to stock it! And we will exclusively be the only online vintage store to stock it.

The A2 sized poster will be available as of 17th April 2014 but you can pre-order it right now, right HERE

We announced this only a couple of hours ago and orders are already flowing in, so if you would like a copy, don't hang around! 

It's the perfect poster for any vintage fan! 

The text has been altered slightly and more designer names have been added since its original release. Here is the final poster!

Oscars 2014 Red Carpet

No doubt you've seen them all 400 times already, but we always like to blog our Oscars red carpet winners and losers the morning after the night before! 

Is it just us or were last night's fashion offerings more than a little underwhelming? With one exception in our humble opinion, the belle of the ball, Lupita Nyong'o in Prada.

Charlize Theron gets snaps for at least wearing an original and interesting dress. Not sure it completely floats our boat but at least the neckline is something to talk about unlike your bog standard figure hugging strapless numbers. Not looking at anyone in particular... Amy Adams.



Julie Delphy just wins all round. If you haven't read what she had to say about the Academy, catch it here. Ten times more admirable than Jennifer Lawrence, any day of the week. But she doesn't photobomb everyone or fall over every 5 minutes, so... 
But back to the dress. Possibly a risky one on many red carpet walkers, but this Jenny Packham looks beautifully retro on Delphy, complimenting her in all the right places. The red lips pop perfectly.

 Mixed opinion on Best Actress winner Cate Blanchett's Armani gown. It sure is beautifully striking, and only a pale beauty like Cate could pull it off. The only aspect of this dress that doesn't look quite right to us, is the way it rises up onto her neck... cutting it an inch or so lower to get rid of that jewel on her thyroid gland would have done the trick. Love the earrings, mind you.




Bette Midler wins because she's Bette Midler. She's wearing Reem Acra by the way. Gorgeous. 



And the losers... 

Oh dear, Julia. Oh dear oh dear. 



Anne Hathaway. Nil points.



Snore.



NIPPLE.



She almost looks like she knows what she's done but it's too late. 



And here is the updated 2014 Oscar Dresses infographic! Thanks again, Mediarun
