Oscars 2014

I’m a whole week late, but I had to post my favorites from this year’s Academy Awards! I barely had any worsts. This year everyone looked so good! Who were your favorites? Any that you absolutely hated? And was Ellen not the best host ever? I loved it.

Cate Blanchett – Such a fun material.cate-blanchett-armani-dress-oscars-2014-h724

Pink – I think this is one of her best looks. It was the perfect dress for the song she did. She looks sooo good. Her hair looks bomb.oscars-2014-pink-performance-ensemble__oPt

Kerry Washington – At first I had this on my best dressed (I even had it on my instagram) because she looks flawless, but then someone pointed out the wrinkles to me and now I can’t get over them! I can’t believe no one steamed her dress.item9_rendition_slideshowVertical_oscars-2014-kerry-waashington

WORSTS

Lady Gaga – I don’t really even know what to say about this, but I just don’t like it. It’s not even horrible, but she looks very fake and it’s not good compared to everyone else’s amazing dresses.  Also I hate the scarf.86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Kristin Chenoweth – This isn’t terrible either, but she looks so fake also. She looks like the oscar trophy and that’s why it bothered me.Vogue-Italia-Oscars-2014-Best-dresses-Kristin-Chenoweth-in-Roberto-Cavalli-e1393850164681

The 2013 Oscars

The Oscars!!! The biggest awards ceremony of the year! This is what we wait for…and for fashion too! Don’t worry. I sat on my couch for probably like 6-7 hours watching the red carpet shows, the actual show, and after parties. I love all of it. Now I have to make sure I got away all of the movies that got so many awards.

But now onto the dresses! What you were really all waiting for right?

Halle Berry: This is amazing. I had too many favorites already, but I loved this! She had this made for her 007 tribute presentation and I think it totally fits! No one else had a dress even close to something like this. (Versace)
feb-24-oscars-halle-berry-getty__oPt

Catherine Zeta Jones: She looks beautiful, but I’m pretty sure she hasn’t aged in like ten years. I’m not sure if the dress is my favorite though. It kind of looks like cheap gold foil. She looks great in anything though.
Catherine Zeta Jones oscars 2013

Giuliana Rancic: The more I looked at this dress, the more I started to like it. At first I thought it was boring, but all of the cuts make it so pretty.
guiliana_rancic_2013_oscars_red_carpet_18il4ek-18il4en

Jane Fonda: Are you kidding me? How old are you and you look that good? This color and fit were so great. I guess those work outs really do work. Wow is all I have to say…and that’s in a good way.

Jane-Fonda-oscars-500x723

Kelly Osbourne: I’m not a huge fan of this dress, but it wasn’t one of the worst. I didn’t like the the neck straps were supposed to be all over the place…and I just didn’t really like the beading or glitter or whatever that was. I thought the cut kind of made her arms look big too. She is in a lot better shape lately so I’d think she would want something that would make her look smaller.
Kelly Osbourne oscars 2013

Kerry Washington: These colors on her are gorgeous. She has some of the best fashion sense around right now. I loved this dress and the detail on top.(Miu Miu)
Kerry Washington Oscars 2013Kristen Stewart: This look kind of turned into a diaster. I should have put this on my worst dress, but I think the dress itself isn’t bad. It’s a gorgeous dress (if you watched and saw it on stage…the detailing is beautiful). It’s just too big on her and makes her look bigger, and her hair is messy. It’s the Oscars…at least try. I’m honestly surprised she was invited to present in the first place. (Reem Acra)

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Sally Field: I am really shocked at how good she looks. I love this on her. The train is amazing and the color is beautiful. Go Sally!
85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Adele: I’m glad that she wore her hair down this time. I just can’t get over how every time she gets ready her hair and makeup are perfect. I think she looked great. (Jenny Packham)
oscars-2013-adele-jenny-packham-h724

Helen Hunt: She is wearing H&M with $700,000 worth of diamonds…so…the only problem with that is her dress is wrinkly and didn’t fit right. I don’t know if she was trying to be affordable because obviously the diamonds weren’t. I’m not trying to knock her being different, etc…but you can tell that it wasn’t a nice dress. Either that or she should have gotten it fitted to her.
oscars-2013-helen-hunt-red-carpet__iphone_290

Queen Latifah: I like this. I think she looks classy and elegant. I like that she kept it simple.
Queen Latifah oscars 2013

Little Q: She is the cutest little thing. I can’t get over her! I need to watch the movie that she is in, because she has the cutest little personality and seriously, being nominated at 9?! Anyway, I’m glad they didn’t over dress her and kept her age appropriate.
q-wallis-oscars-2013-2

Maria Menounos: She looks like a darker colored barbie! Gorg! I love it so much. This dress is so bright and beautiful. I’d steal it!maria_menounos_oscars_2013_red_carpet_valley_of_the_dolls_candy_pink_18il5n0-18il5ne

Reese Witherspoon: She had the best hair of the night! She just had a baby and she looks fantastic! The color was gorgeous on her. (Louis Vuitton)

oscars-reese-witherspoon

Octavia Spencer: I love her. She is so cute and always looks great. I do think there was just a little bit too much fabric going on, but she definitely knows what is good on her body! She is very classy. (Tadashi Shoji)
85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Jennifer Hudson: I think she looks fantastic. This color is beautiful. Her hair is amazing. The only thing I don’t like is I think her shoes are clashing a little bit. (Roberto Cavalli) I also think she looked great in her performance dress.
reg_634.hudson.cm.22413_copyjennifer-hudson-and-i-am-telling-you-at-oscars-2013-video

Renee Zellweger: I like the dress, it’s not one of my favorites, but it fits her perfectly. I did not like her hair at all though. It looked like she didn’t even try.
Renee Zellweger

Selma Hayek: At first I didn’t like this very much, but it grew on me. It’s very different than what she normally wears and I think I like it a lot now. I don’t like the little tiara in her hair though.
Salma-Hayek-Oscars-2013-Pictures

Olivia Munn: There is something I really like about this, but then something I’m not sure about. I like that no one else wore anything like this and I like the colors.
olivia_munn_18iln4l-18iln70

Sandra Bullock: I think she looks really good, but she didn’t take any risks with this. At first I didn’t like her hair, but then I figured if she had put if up it probably would have been more harsh and I would have liked it less. So I liked it, it just wasn’t a fav. (Elie Saab)
Sandra-Bullock-Oscars-2013

Samantha Barks: I really like this. Very simple, but elegant. I like that she didn’t do something way crazy.
samantha barks

WORSTS

Anne Hathaway: I seriously hated this. Yes, it’s very simple, but then she has on this huge necklace that doesn’t match really at all. The back had this big tie that was messy and looked like she just tied it and jumped out of the car or something. She was up for a huge award and this dress was just boring. It was kind of an ugly color and did nothing for her skin. If you saw her from far away she would have looked naked. Plus her nipples were sticking out so bad! Eek! And…I think she could have used some product in her hair? (Prada) I liked her performance dress way more! (see below) She should have just worn that…even thought that’s not my favorite dress either.

Anne Hathaway Oscars 2013
feb-24-oscars-anne-hathaway-onstage-getty__oPt

Melissa McCarthy: I always feel bad putting her on the worst dressed, but she always kind of picks big drapey things. Yes she is bigger, but she can get something tailored to her that still looks good. This color isn’t great and the slit is black. It’s kinda weird. I wish she would try a little harder.
85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Nicole Kidman: I kept wanting to like this, but I just can’t. On the red carpet the top actually looked like leopard print, and I hate the circles at the bottom. I would have like this a lot if it was just all one color. Her body looks great at least. I feel like her hair just looks messy. (L’wren Scott)
85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Zoe Saldana: I saw this dress and loved the top…then I saw the bottom. I HATE the bottom. I don’t know if it’s the grey colors or just the fact the it’s short and then fades into the colors or what. I think it’s all of it. I just don’t like the bottom half at all and that was enough for it to be in my worsts. It’s not an oscar dress for me at all.
85th Annual Academy Awards - People Magazine Arrivals

Nancy O’Dell: This fits her really well, but it looks like a smurf rainbow. I hate this too. This should have just been one color of blue and it would have been much better.85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Kelly Rowland: This is a long fall from the Grammys. The shape is wrong. It looks like is off kilter or something and her hair just doesn’t look good up in that bun. I know she’s in great shape too, but her legs don’t look good in this dress. I just hate it.85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

BESTS

Charlize Theron: She looks so sleek and clean here. I love the shape of this dress. I can’t believe how good she looks with short hair. Her face is just perfect. (Dior)

Charlize Theron oscars 2013

George Clooney and Stacy Keibler: He’s starting to look older :(, but I think it’s because of the beard. (Armani) She looks absolutely amazing. I love this dress on her. Fabulous pick. The detailing accentuates all of her best features. Plus Clooney is a pretty good accessory. (Naeem Khan)
85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Naomi Watts: This dress is so modern! The cut is amazing. It fits her like a glove. I love love love the sparkle on this dress. (Armani)Naomi-Watts-Pictures-Armani-Prive-2013-Oscars

Amanda Seyfried: This dress is so beautiful! I love it! I can’t get over the details on this dress. McQueen makes the best things ever. (Alexander McQueen)
Amanda Seyfried oscars 2013

Jennifer Aniston: I loved this dress! I think it’s very different than what she normal wears on a read carpet. The color was beautiful on her and the shape was so fun.
feb-24-oscars-jennifer-aniston-getty__oPt

Jennifer Garner: She has looked fabulous this whole awards season. I love this so much! From the color, to the jewelry, to the amazing bow/ruffles trailing down the back of the dress. Can’t get enough! (Gucci)Jennifer Farner oscars 2013

Jennifer Lawrence: She is another one that has been amazing this awards season. She is really good at being youthful, but not childish. I love the poof at the bottom! It’s like a Cinderella dress…and it was perfect because she won! I really liked the backwards necklace that she wore also. (Dior Haute Couture)
Jennifer Lawrence oscars 2013

Amy Adams: This is just fabulous. Who wouldn’t want to look like a princess? The skirt is poofy and young and gorgeous. I love it! I would die to wear this. Plus I like that her hair contrasts that dress and is a little bit undone. It’s perfect together! (Oscar de la Renta)
amy adams oscars 2013

Amy Adams oscars 2013Jessica Chastain: This was hands down my favorite of the night. She looks like an Oscar. Absolutely beautiful. True hollywood glamour. The beading was completely tailored to fit the curves of her body, which was amazing. Her lips were the perfect color and her hair was perfect. Fabulous! (Armani)
Jessica-Chastian-2013-Oscars1-600x450Jessica Chastain oscars 2013

I think this was my favorite part of the whole awards ceremony. It’s Les Mis portion of the musical tribute. I literally have watched it like 7 times now. I’m so obsessed!  Enjoy!

Also, this is Jennifer Lawrence’s interview after winning best actress. I think she is so cute and so funny.

Popular Peplums

Peplums are all the rage right now, and I’m totally down for this trend! I love it so much! So flattering and so cute. Maybe not the best option for super curvy girls, but I think if you wear it right you can get away with it. I love it as a little black dress or color blocked! Prints are also fun as well. Take a look at all of the celebrities below to see how all of the different body types wear it!

My favorite celebrity peplum! Model Coco Rocha in Jason Wu

My first runner up: Charlize Theron in Lanvin (She always looks flawless)

My second runner up: Jennifer Aniston in Tom Ford

Blake Lively in Victoria Beckham

Nicole Kidman in L’Wren (I love her in red)

Lucy Hale in Peter Som

Lady Gaga in Antonio Berardi (She actually looks classy here! Bravo Gaga!)

Kim Kardashian in Vigo (This is what I mean about the curvy thing, because it can almost make you look a little bit wider, but I think it still looks ok on her…borderline? What do you think?)

Dianna Agron in Stella McCartney

Emma Stone in Martin Grant

Beyonce in Peter Som (loving mustard!)

Victoria Beckham in her own dress

Here are three of my favorite peplums in stores now!

‘Band’ Together

I am a huge fan of headbands, not only because of Blair Waldorf, but because I’m secretly just really lazy and it makes doing your hair in the morning SO much easier! 

Thin headbands are becoming more and more in trend and they work for everyone! I love that they can be casual or dressy as well!

Cropped Hair/Pixie – You can “fake” an updo with a headband by teasing your hair and pushing the front back with the band.

Evan Rachel Wood

Short Hair/Bob – Twist hair back and secure with band. Curling makes the short pieces that come out of the hair-do look more placed as well.

Charlize Theron

Medium Length – Pull into a low or high bun and push up for a bump for height.

Kerry Washington (she has a little bump going on)

Long Hair – The thin band creates definition in the middle of the mass of hair you have going on up on your hair. See below on these three celebrities. 

Sandra Bullock, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Gwyneth Paltrow

One celebrity that can be seen wearing the thin band over and over is Kristen Bell. Seen here she has a sleek updo, a cool ponytail, and even a wears it with her hair down. Love her!

Bob-alicious

If it hadn’t taken me so long to grow out my hair I would be tempted to chop it off and go back to a bob! So hot right now 🙂

Kristin Cavallari’s Side Sweep

Kate Bosworth’s Sleek and Tucked Look

Sandra Bullock Soft Look

Ali Larter’s Blunt Bob

Olivia Wilde’s Textured Waves

Charlize Theron’s Girlie Curls

Golden Globes 2012

Elle McPherson
I think I’m regretting not putting her on my best dressed now. The only reason I didn’t was because it slightly resembled a wedding dress…but she looks amazing.

Heidi Klum
I thought she looked great and I loved the necklace.

Charlize Theron
Not sure how I feel about this dress, but she looks good in everything. I never see pick anything terrible.

Sophia Vergara
I really like this. I love the bottom.

Julie Bowen
This looks like a dress that Taylor Swift would wear and I don’t like her hair, but it’s not the worst thing ever.

Natalie Portman
I think she looks gorgeous, but she looks a little bit plain. The color is pretty on her though.

Paula Patton
I love this. That’s all.

Claire Danes
I think this is super interesting. I didn’t love the front, but I like the back a lot.

Emma Stone
Gorgeous and I love the color…I just don’t know what’s up with the belt. It looks like a cowboy/western thing…?

Angelina Jolie
I almost put her on the worst dressed…Fashion Police loved it and I did NOT. I thought it washed her out and made her body look funny. I thought her face looked super harsh too. But it wasn’t as bad as the ones I picked for worst.

Amber Riley
I actually really liked this on her. I think she looked really good. The dress fit her so well.

Dianna Agron
I actually kind of liked this. A lot of people didn’t, but I thought it was way different and fun.

Evan Rachel Wood
I can’t decide about this dress. She looks like a giant snake-peacock, but I sort of like it in a weird way…but I would never wear it.

Nicole Kidman
This dress fit her perfectly, but it makes her look so white. I think the dress is pretty, just not on her.

Mila Kunis
I think she looks pretty, but its not my favorite. She looks better in a colored dress and I like her better with a little bit of light in her hair.

Nicole Richie
I actually love this. And her hair. I also thought about this for best dressed, but it was a tiny bit loose so I didn’t.

Lea Michele
I just can’t decide. I think this would look so much better on someone else. It’s too old for her. She’s trying to hard, but she still looks so pretty.

Selma Hayek
I actually really like this. It’s totally different and fun.

Sarah Hyland
I always like the dresses she picks out. She’s so cute. I love the lace around the center.

Zooey Deschanel
I love this dress, but I don’t like her hair. I wish it was totally straight or up. The dress is perfect for her.

Worst Dressed
Rooney Mara
She always looks so angry and bored. And this is the most predictable dress for her. It looks the same as all the other ones she has worn recently. I didn’t like the whole look.

Jessica Biel
This makes me sad cuz she is so pretty, but she looks like a polygamist.

Kate Winslet
For some reason, overall I just didn’t like her tonight. The dress was boring and didn’t flatter her.

Madonna
Ummm…too tight. Weird. Glove? Are you Michael Jackson? What’s with the necklace?

Sarah Michelle Gellar
Is this for real a tie-dye dress? Did she spill a slushie on it? It’s also the size of Jupiter.

Tilda Swinton
I just think she’s so weird. She could wear something normal.

Best Dressed
Kate Beckinsale
She is perfect. I love the shape of this dress. Everything about this is flawless.

Jessica Alba
Again…perfection. I have nothing to complain about.

Kristin Wigg
Some people may disagree with me, but she looks so good. This is perfect on her. I love that it’s all so simple.

George and Stacey
She is very simple, but if he anywhere in the picture we’re good to go.

Reese Witherspoon
I LOVE this. Her hair. The shape. The color. She looks amazing.
