TBH, Marie Kondo's Oscars Dress Sparks The Most Joy, So It Can Stay
If there's one thing that's downright sparking on the red carpet tonight, it's none other than organizational queen Marie Kondo's 2019 Oscars dress. With its whimsical design, embellished with tons of sparkles, the only thing rivaling Kondo's gorgeous gown (which is designed by Jenny Packham) is her infectious smile and bubbly attitude many of us have come to know and love.
For the 2019 Oscars, the Netflix lead decided to wear a gown in the softest shade of blush pink that features an elegant V-neck, short ruched sleeves, and the most darling train following right behind her. The light, airy lace fabric and floral, sequin appliqués make the dress so feminine and classy.
Since Kondo does the less-is-more approach better than anyone else, she paired all the sparkles on her gown with just a few shiny baubles. Studs on her ears and a wedding ring was all she needed to pull this extremely striking look together, in my personal opinion.
When it came to her hair and makeup, Kondo opted for simple and glowy makeup. She topped this look off with a feminine soft, pink lip, and perfectly shaped brows. As for her hair, she kept it tidy, of course. To show off the pretty neckline of this dress, she pulled her long bob into a low chignon and kept her bangs to frame her face.
Marie Kondo looked absolutely amazing at this evening's affair.
Marie Kondo's books, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and Spark Joy, in addition to Netflix show Tidying Up with Marie Kondo have been making waves. They've set fans on a mad dash to organize their homes with Kondo's famous KonMari method.
While I suggest catching up on all of her episodes for yourself, here's my version: Basically, you go through every room in your home, starting with your closet (eventually making your way through your kitchen, junk drawers and even your beauty products), and pull out every item one at a time. With each item, you evaluate whether that specific items "sparks joy" for you. Kondo describes this as a warm, happy feeling inside — basically, you know it when you feel it. If the item doesn't spark joy, you thank it for all it has done for you, and then dispose of it in your own way.
Before you know it (I should mention this could take months for some households.), you're left with a home full of items that bring you happiness, and zero clutter. Sounds pretty great, right?
Marie Kondo is taking a much-needed night off from organizing homes to enjoy the evening with Hollywood's biggest movie stars.
(Let's just hope the celebs don't bombard her for organizational advice!) All I have to say is, not only does the queen of the popular KonMari method have a great sense of organizing, it's clear she has a true sense of style. Kondo was a vision walking down the red carpet this evening, and her dress is something that will always "spark joy" in all of us.
