Oscars 2013 : I Liked It But....




Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture
I really went back and forth on this dress....
my conclusion though is that the dress is wearing her and the fabric looks too heavy.
She looks beautiful but uncomfortable.

Reese Witherspoon in Louis Vuitton.
She's so pretty and her hair looks gorgeous here....I think this colour is just okay on her.
I also think the bodice of the dress squashes her.   

Charlize Theron in Dior.
Beautiful but just lacking something for me....
maybe a statement jewellery piece or some colour, an accent of some kind?


Catherine Zeta Jones in Zuhair Murad
I loved her dress & think she is always so glamorous....
last night she appeared to be wearing a lot of make-up, too much.


Jennifer Aniston in Valentino
I absolutely loved seeing Jennifer in something other than black & this dress looks perfect for the Oscars. I think an up-do would have looked better on her though, her hair is just a little casual for the occasion.



Adele wearing Jenny Packham....
yes, it's black again but she looks lovely, her hair and make-up is gorgeous - and she won!! 


Amanda Seyfried in custom Alexander McQueen.
I liked this but just didn't love it....the top half is wrong somehow.



Oscars 2013 : Best Dressed

 

Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta

I'm always excited to watch the Oscars Red Carpet Show every year & 2013 did not disappoint.

The Golden Globes & the Emmys were underwhelming earlier this year but last night glamour was everywhere....so many beautiful gowns.

To make my "Best Dressed" list, absolutely all the boxes have to be checked....
hair, jewellery, shoes, accessories and, of course, the gown itself.

The gown must fit like a glove, it needs to be glamorous enough & has to be the right colour....
and the wearer needs to be wearing it, as opposed to the dress wearing her.

These are the dresses that made my list this year, these ladies got it 100% right in my opinion....
  


Sally Field in Valentino Couture




Octavia Spencer - a regular Red Carpet favourite of mine - in Tadashi Shoji



Jennifer Garner in Gucci
I love this colour on her - and well done Ben Affleck for winning an Oscar for "Argo", fantastic! 


Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive



Naomi Watts in Armani Prive



Jennifer Hudson in Roberto Cavalli Couture

Oscars 2010....Best Dressed....

1. Helen Mirren in Badgley Mischka....she looks fabulous, the dress is perfect and she looks radiant...10/10!

2. Best Actress Oscar  winner Sandra Bullock in Marchesa....dressed to win....I love her hair and make-up too, she looks very comfortable in the whole look....

3. Cameron Diaz in Oscar de la Renta....the best I have seen her looking for some time on the red carpet, getting it totally right on the night....gorgeous dress and beautiful hair....

4. Mariska Hargitay in Vera Wang....I love this, it's so classic - if I had to choose a dress to wear personally, this would be it!

5. Jennifer Lopez in Armani Prive....I wasn't sure about this at first but I think it works and she did look wonderful in it when I saw her interviewed on the red carpet...I like the simple hair and make-up too...

6. Zoe Saldana.....not everyone could carry this off but I think she does....love the shoes too...

7. Sarah Jessica Parker in Chanel...another dress that I went back and forth on....I love the glamour of it and I love her hair....actually, I think it was her make-up that I didn't like...her foundation was a little orange and her eye make-up aged her...

8. Demi Moore in Versace....my issue with Demi Moore is that she is a beautiful 47 year old woman who by means of surgery now looks way younger....I just don't get it, why do it? But this dress is fabulous, it was a great choice for her....

9. Diane Kruger in Chanel....I'm not sure anyone could have worn this dress, it could have looked so wrong on someone else....but I love it on her...

10. Queen Latifah looked wonderful in this, I loved the shoulder strap and the colour is beautiful on her....and her make-up was flawless as always.....

These are my personal favourites....for more great coverage of the Oscar fashions, check out Handbags and Handguns....
