Last night the 83rd Annual Academy Awards were held the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles. It’s one of the biggest events of the year in Hollywood & I am always very keen to see what all the big stars choose to wear to this glamorous event. As usual – here are my best & worst picks!
Gwyneth Palthrow shines a Calvin Klein Collection column dress and finished off her look with earrings, a brooch, and a ring from Louis Vuitton’s jewellery collection: L’Ame du Voyage. Gwyneth is one of my style icons! She just wears clothes so well. This metallic Calvin Klein Collection gown really was made for her. Stunning!
Cate Blanchett in a Givency Couture dress with beautiful yellow detailing on the black along with Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery. Cate is never afraid to make a bold fashion choice. She definitely wore the most controversial dress of the night. Some people hated it, some people loved it. It’s so different & not really ‘me’ but in some way I just LOVED it! She wears this dress so well & manages to look amazingly soft and pretty! Plus hair & makeup were perfect. She just blew me away, my absolute favourite of the night! :)
Reese Witherspoon wore a black & white Giorgio Armani Privé evening gown with Neil Lane jewellery. The strapless dress features a white silk band at the neckline and a subtle train. In some way the dress reminded me a little of the gown Julia Roberts wore to the 2001 Oscars. But have to say, Reese looked glowing, elegant and loved the retro ponytail!
Michelle Williams in a white beaded Chanel Haute Couture gown. It took me a while to decide on this outfit but in the end have to say I do like it! It’s soft, pretty and suits Michelle’s style & short hair.
Sandra Bullock is red HOT in Vera Wang. I know this is a simple look and not very ‘stand out’ but she looks beautiful & I plainly love Sandy so just had to put her on the best dressed list :)
Mila Kunis showcased her smoking body in this racy yet tasteful lavender chiffon gown with tiered lace detailing by Elie Saab haute couture. The colour looks so amazing on her and yes it’s a little ‘boobie-ish’ (haha is that even a word…) but I think she can pull it off and still look classy!
Hilary Swank in a Gucci Premiere couture strapless floor length evening gown. Think the glittery feather trail and silver/blue ombre features on this dress are stunning!
Halle Berry looks like a dream in a nude and crystal encrusted Marchesa corset gown with organza and silk tulle ruffles and Christian Louboutin heels.
Nicole Kidman in a Dior dress with a rare 19th century diamond Riviere necklace from Fred Leighton and Pierre Hardy shoes. Nicole told Hollyscoop that her daughter Sunday Rose picked out her outfit, which was cute, but clearly a mistake ;)
Scarlett Johansson in Dolce & Gabbana. I have very mixed feelings about this look. I liked the (open) back of the dress, I liked her messy hair and loved her rusty eye makeup…..But I didn’t love the colour on her and the front transparent part of the dress looked a little odd. Plus in some photos it looked as if her black underwear & bra were showing in that dress. So in the end, she’s on my worst dressed. Sorry!
Melissa Leo, a real red carpet disappointment. She wore a white, lace/cut-out dress with an ultra-reflecting fabric underlay by Marc Bouwer. It looks too big, bulky & square on her & the mix of fabrics…a BIG NO!
Emma Stone at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party held at the Sunset Tower Hotel on Sunday. Emma wore a Chanel Haute Couture dress and Salvatore Ferragamo Heels. I know this is not from the actual Oscars Red Carpet but spotted this outfit & it just HAD to be on my worst dressed list! C’mon what on earth is she wearing and oh my gosh what did she do to her hair!! Did she try to cut her own fringe? Am lost for words. She looked so amazing at the Golden Globes & am just shocked & disappointed with this look.
Penelope Cruz has only just given birth to a little baby boy and I have to say her body looked amazing, but unfortunately I can’t say the same for her dress. The embroidered L’wren Scott dress looked kind of cheap…..
Amy Adams in a dress by L’Wren Scott matched with jewellery by Cartier. Don’t think the dress is that bad (dont love it either) but the main thing I didn’t like was the way she wore her accessories with it. The green pendant just didn’t work well with the neckline and the blue!
Marisa Tomei in a 1950 couture Charles James dress from Lily et Cie. Oh where to begin! It looks OK until you scroll down and see the lower half of her dress. It looks as if an amateur seamstress worked on the bottom part on to the dress last minute. Didn’t like her hair either. Big fail….
Jennifer Lawrence in a Calvin Klein Collection dress made for her by designer Francisco Costa. OK there is nothing wrong with this dress. She is a beautiful woman and she looks very sexy! But, I think she looks boring! I know a lot of people will disagree with me on this one, but I just think, she’s a first time nominee and this was her time to shine! She looked beautiful….but a little boring!
So this were my picks! What were yours? Award wise, thought the Oscars were quite predictable this year – pretty much knew who was going to walk away with a little gold statue. Am glad that Natalie Portman won though, she truly deserved it!
