Awards season calls for Red Carpet Bingo

It’s that time of the year when actors, actresses, filmmakers, and production staff are recognized for their efforts by award-giving bodies—this is also the best time for celebrities to showcase their impeccable taste in fashion. The recently concluded Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards were witnesses to the ensembles sported by our favorite names in Hollywood. From sparkling to eccentric, there’s no shortage of gushes and exclamations during red carpet walks.

Fashionistas see the red carpet as an opportunity to discover new trends for formal wear. This is why, aside from the event itself, we are also tuned in to see what the stars are wearing. Wardrobe-watching during awards season has been a regular thing that a game has been made out of it: the Red Carpet Bingo. Artist and designer Lauren Venell formulated this bingo card, which contains the usual “sights” at the red carpet, instead of random numbers. The bingo game can be played during the upcoming Academy Awards, which will happen March 2nd. So far, we’ve seen color-blocking in Amy Adams’ wine-colored gown, Greek-inspired frock (similar to goddess Shu-Horn’s long gown in the latest Bingogodz advert) by Julie Delpy, and black-and-white ensemble by Heidi Klum as the favorite trends.

Let’s get our daubers ready for the Oscars; here are some suggested items for the Red Carpet Bingo card:

· Hair accessory
· Shawl
· Backless dress
· Designed by Balenciaga
· Yellow dress
· Lady’s hair worn down
· Man with earring
· Pink dress
· Outfit using more than three colors
· Non-black tuxedo
· Boots
· Woman wearing pants
· Earrings and a necklace

We can add or subtract items as we wish, like famous designers or predicted colors for the red carpet. Since two awards nights have already finished, it’s more or less easy to predict the trends in the upcoming Oscars, which we can include in our bingo cards.
