Couture For The Floor – 2018 Oscars Dresses

Fashion and Home design go hand in hand, with the trends of one world often influencing the other. Here we celebrate the diverse and artistic looks from the 2018 Oscar’s red carpet, by pairing celebrity gowns with similar rug design from Fort Street Studio’s collection of wild silk and wool-and-silk hand-knotted carpets.

Allison Janney, winner of Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her role in I, Tonya, cut a statuesque figure herself in red Reem Acra. Her dress’ floor-grazing sleeves remind us of the long ribbon in our Ribbon Red wild silk rug.


Best Actress nominee Saoirse Ronan’s Calvin Klein frock has similar geometric motifs and blush tons as our Arang Pink wool and cultivated silk carpet.


Sandra Bullock’s Louis Vuitton dress has cascading metallic embellishments just like the cascading clusters of cultivated silk in Drift Bone.


Our Swarm Aqua rug has sparkly accents reminiscent of those on the top of Star Wars star Kelly Marie Tran’s Jenny Packham dress.


The red plum blossoms on on Paz Vega’s Christopher Bu custom creation are similar to the motif of our Plum Cinnabar wild silk rug.


The maroon accents on The Big Sick co-writer Emily V. Gordon’s J Mendel ballgown remind us of the drawn line accents on our Salon Sumac wild silk rug.


The incredible bow in the center of Nicole Kidman’s Armani Privé dress is akin to the flower motif in the center of our Lotus Smoke wool rug.


The cut-pile motif of our Bing Light rug includes the imagined sound of white wool/silk drops pattered across its flatwoven surface; Emily Blunt’s grey Schiaparelli Haute Couture gown is similarly dotted.


Once a classic, always a classic: our Rign Red, and Meryl Streep in Christian Dior Haute Couture.


We thought the vertical- and asymetrical-striped motif of Lesley Manville’s Anna Valentine frock was similar to that of our Code Surf wool and silk carpet.


The dark sparkle and white edging of Ladybird star Beanie Feldstein’s Sachin + Babi dress reminded us of our Edge Chalk wild silk carpet.


Ladybird director Greta Gerwig is a ray of sunshine in Rodarte, just like our Corrugated Melon wool rug.
