The selection process is an essential part of personal fashion. Ever wonder why when entering a beloved store in the mall all of the stores are featuring the same color pallets? How about the styles one will find on the racks? Where do these styles come from and who decides they’re the trend to follow?

Certainly, popular magazines and style television shows help dictate the trends one find. However, fashion goes deeper than that. Fashion starts on a runway in places around the world such as New York, Paris, London, Tokyo and Milan. Trends including color, shape and general styles sift from these runways to the racks in every local Wal Mart, Macy’s and sometimes even Good Wills.

Brie Larson in Gucci at this year’s Oscars

The Oscars red carpet has never been exactly at the vanguard of feminism. Unless the five-hours-in-make-up, half-starved-to-death thing is an ongoing subversive agitprop immersive theatre piece orchestrated by Reese Witherspoon to make a point about the gender pay gap in Hollywood by illustrating how much harder the women of Hollywood have to work than the men to pass muster on the red carpet.
