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)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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) Kristen 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)
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!
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)
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.
Queen Latifah: I like this. I think she looks classy and elegant. I like that she kept it simple.
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.
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!
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)
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)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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)
Samantha Barks: I really like this. Very simple, but elegant. I like that she didn’t do something way crazy.
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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
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)
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)
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)
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)
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.
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 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)
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)
Jessica 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)
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.
Baroque is a big trend right now and I love it! I love the big prints and chunky jewelry pieces. It’s very romantic and fun! I love the jewelry the most…it reminds me of playing dress up as a kid. Here are some amazing pieces below that will take you back a few eras.
From classics to cowgirls to sparkly statements, there is no shortage of hot to trot booties this fall. You better get on this trend and pick out your favorite style, or two, or three! There are just too many fun ones to choose from!!!
I’m obsessed with this spread in July’s Lucky Magazine of Leighton Meester. The dresses she has on are amazing! They are so great for summer! I love the colors! On the cover she is wearing Dolce & Gabbana.
Yves Saint Laurent
BCBGMAXAZRIA (This one is my favorite! I love the breeziness and pop of color!)
So, it’s only July, but of course all of the Pre-Fall collections are coming out and I’m getting antsy. I always get too excited about wanting fall stuff and boots when it’s still 105 degrees outside and I won’t need sweaters and boots until September or even October! (at least I live in Utah and I can wear them forever, but by then I’m dying for shorts and sandals…it never ends).
Anyway, I figured this was a good halfway…pumps! You can wear these all year long. So, here are some fun “pre-fall collection” platform pumps you will probably see around soon and definitely this fall!
1. Nicholas Kirkwood – Velvet and Hammered Metal Platform Ankle Boots
2. Nicholas Kirkwood – Suede Ruffle Platform Ankle Boots
3. Brian Atwood – Alesha Studded Leather Platform Pumps
