… And the boring/worst dressed of Oscars 2014

After covering the best of Oscars 2014, it is only fair to cover the underwhelming and worst dressed. There weren’t any crazy out of the world dresses, just plain boring.

FROM THE BORING TO PLAIN BAD

One of the discoveries for this year, Wolf of Wall Street Margot Robbie disappointed in this goth like black gown by Saint Laurant with diamonds necklace and earrings to match her now darker hair (she used to be blonde). The make up was overdone, the hair is too dark- she needs to fire her stylist and hair and make-up team ASAP!

Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts’ return to red carpet season hasn’t been great- with the shirt gown and the pantsuit. For Oscars, the newly blonde Julia wore a black sleeveless lace gown by Givenchy. The dress was fine, but the camisole like inset makes it plain weird.

Anne Hathaway

Another weird black number was the one Anne Hathaway wore- designed by Gucci, it has this metallic detail. Moreover the gown wasn’t right for Oscars- probably more fit for something more casual. Not a fan!

Anna Kendrick

Third black dress that was underwhelming was Anna Kendrick’s edgy black with mesh details and a thigh high slit on J Mendel. Anna took a risk and tried something different, but it has far too much going on and wasn’t appropriate for Oscars. Fail!

Jennifer Garner

One of my favorites Jennifer Garner wore a silver beaded Oscar de la Renta gown with tiered detail. I don’t hate this look, I just have seen it too many times on the red carpet to get excited by it. Better luck next year!

Angelina Jolie

Another red carpet favorite that disappointed by choosing a relatively boring dress was Angelina Jolie. Angelina wore a metallic Elie Saab gown- the gown is great, but there have been many similar ones on the red carpet before.

Viola Davis

Viola Davis wore a green Escada gown- I love the color, but I am not a fan of the fabric or the fitting. I love Viola Davis, but this dress just doesn’t work for me, sorry!

 

That’s it folks! I love sharing my opinions on the award show fashion trends- thanks for reading, and please continue to share your views by commenting on the posts below…

 

A Look at the Fashion at Screen Actor’s Guild 2013

Hi all! I am back, with my take on the Screen Actor Guild 2013 fashion.

Here are some of the noteworthy looks:

The girl of the moment (and star of my new favorite movie Silver Linings Playbook) Jennifer Lawrence continues her perfect fashion streak with this beautiful navy blue gown by Dior. I absolutely loved her necklace too!

Nicole Kidman isn’t the person I usually watch out for during the award seasons, but she looked incredible in Vivienne Westwood gown. The embroidery is absolutely beautiful!

Continuing on my favorite blue theme, Amanda Seyfried looks fresh and pretty in this Zac Posen number. I am totally fixated on her Lorraine Schwartz medallion necklace- totally love it!

Naomi Watts is stunning in this silver Marchesa number! Absolute perfection!

Jennifer Garner continues to rock the red carpet, she looks incredible in this golden glittery number by Oscar de la Renta.

Jessica Chastain was amazingly fashionable during last year’s award season. But this year, she continues to disappoint me. This red Alexander McWueen gown is not fitted very well- she is so skinny but this gown somehow makes her midsection an unflattering shape. I do love her taste in jewelry though!

With Les Miserables, Anne Hathaway is the center of the award season. But her black Giambattista Valli gown is pretty blah! Totally unimpressed!

My usual fashion favorite Sofia Vergara was a bit disappointing. This white Donna Karan number looks ill fitting on top, and just doesn’t work. Maybe she is trying to give a hint to her fiance, because the dress looks a bit bride-ish!

Golden Globes 2013- The Best and Worst Looks

Happy New Year (a bit belated) and welcome to 2013! I was on a hiatus from blogging, but I am back. And this post is just for Aishwarya, who asked me when I am writing about the Golden Globes fashion.

So let’s get started, first with the looks I loved, then move on to the ones that were absolutely awful!

Best dressed at Golden Globes:

One of my favorite people to watch on the red carpet- Emily Blunt didn’t disappoint and stunned in this gorgeous golden gown by Michael Kors. One word- Beautiful!

Another staple in all my fashion posts-Sofia Vergara wows in this black strapless gown by Michael Cinco. I love her red carpet looks- she always dresses perfectly for her body type.

Sticking with the strapless theme, I loved Jennifer Garner in this Dior Haute Couture gown. Such a fantastic color, and it really makes her look radiant! I am also loving the earrings and bracelets– all in all, perfect look!

Best Supporting Actress Winner Anne Hathaway looks sophisticated and elegant in this white Chanel number.

Sticking with the red theme, which was a popular color on the carpet, Best Actress in TV drama winner Claire Danes stunned in this Versace gown. Can you believe she had a baby only a month ago!! Insane!!

The worst looks at Golden Globes:

OK starting with the look I was most disappointed with- during the Oscars 2012, Jessica Chastain was my best dressed. And given she is a strong contender to win, I expected her to bring her A game. This pale blue Calvin Klien gown looked absolutely ridiculous- it was a wonder how she didn’t have a wardrobe malfunction. But her hairstyle just pushed it to worst dress territory-slick hair back never works! Total disappointing!

The usually stunning Lucy Liu disappoints in this light blue Caroline Herrera gown. The design and prints look more suited to be drapes or tablecloth rather than a red carpet gown.

Maybe its my personal bias, but I have never been a fan of the sheer arms and leg and solid middle trend. Rachel Weisz looks a bit drab in this black polka dot Louis Vuitton dress.

The usually stunning Halle Berry looked out of place in this Versace gown, which seems more suited for the beach rather than a red carpet! The prints and colors are dull and the ridiculous ‘Angelina Jolie’ leg trend is the final nail in the coffin. Halle, I expected more!

And keeping with the ridiculous ‘Angelina Jolie’ leg trend, another red carpet hottie that I love to watch- Eva Longoria- disappointed in this black Emilio Pucci gown. The neckline, the leg and back- it was all a bit too much!

Do you guys agree with my picks?

My favorite Oscar 2011 gowns

Actually I should label it as my new wishlist… Anyone willing to donate/gift them to me?! Of course I would need to work out like crazy for the next year, and find occasions to wear these gorgeous gowns, but a girl can dream!

My favorite is the first gown which Anne Hathway wore while hosting the awards. This vanilla-colored bustier gown–Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci is Hollywood royalty all the way!

This is almost tied as my favorite gown, and its Anne Hathaway again. This burgundy silk chiffon gown by Atelier Versace is so striking it takes your breath away.

At this point I must say the overwhelming style icon this year has been Anne Hathway. Although there were lots of bright reds at the Oscars, my favorite one was this one by Valentino.

Mila Kunis has been a style hit this whole award season, and this gorgeous lavender gown by Elie Saab gown is so beautiful!

Glowing  Natalie Portman radiated in this gorgeous gown by Rodarte.
