10 Notable looks of Oscars 2016

Oscars is finally here! Unfortunately, being across the pond means I have to resort to viewing online clips the next day to write my review; I miss the real time experience. This year’s red carpet was a bit of a disappointment- all the gowns were unoriginal, nothing that was absolutely unique.

Here are my 10 notable looks from Oscars 2016

Brie

This year’s best actress winner Brie Lawson in this blue ruffled Gucci gown with a sparkling belt. While I am in love with the color, it has too many ruffles and her hair was all wrong.

Alicia

The other winner, Alicia Vikander, wore a yellow strapless Louis Vuitton number, which looks inspired by Beauty and the Beast. While it is definitely different from the typical red carpet gowns, it looks like a prom dress.

Red carpet favorite Jennifer Lawrence wore a sleeveless black Dior Haute Couture gown to compliment her new platinum hair. It isn’t the most original gown, the hair and dress worked together.

Priyanka

Desi Girl Priyanka Chopra put India on the map, presenting at the Oscars. She looked incredible in this strapless Zuhair Murad gown. Priyanka was in all the press for her 8 million dollars worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, including 50 carat earrings- I am not a fan of the earrings. It doesn’t look like 50 carat real diamond earrings, more like the fake cubic zirconia ones. But all in all, great moment for Priyanka, well done!

Jen Garner

Back in the singles market, Jennifer Garner stunned in this strapless black Versace gown with an asymmetrical neckline, showcasing her incredibly toned body.

Chrissy

Now this is pregnancy fashion done right! Chrissy Teigen wore a floral embellished Marchesa gown, which clung her blossoming bump.

Charlize

Charlize Theron wore a daring low cut and slinky red number by Christian Dior along with a 48.8 carat Harry Winston diamond necklace, along with 15.49 carat diamond earrings and a cushion cut diamond ring. She wore an impressive haul of 3.7 million dollars worth of jewelry. While her jewelry was impressive, Charlize’s gown is extremely similar to her prior Oscar looks. Come on Charlize, try something new!

Naomi

Another flashback from previous Oscars was Naomi Watts in strapless sapphire and amethyst Armani Prive gown, with a statement diamond necklace from Bulgari. The beading and sparkles look a bit tacky, and the look is a bore.

Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara wowed with her curves in his strapless midnight blue Marchesa gown with silver details. While it isn’t the most unique gown, it is a departure from her typical mermaid style gowns. Sofia complemented the look with dangling 65 carat sapphire and diamond earrings by Lorraine Schwartz. I am not a fan of Sofia’s earrings or hair-do, but amazing outfit all in all!

Cate

One of the stars to watch on the red carpet is Cate Blanchett, she is never boring and has the most unique style. This Oscars, she wore a green plunging Armani Prive gown. It was a polarizing dress, hitting best and worst dressed lists everywhere. I am not a fan of the color, it washes her out and the flower detail was cheap. Great attempt at bringing life to the red carpet, but sadly wrong choice of gown.

That wraps it up! Share your best and worst looks below…

Oscars Fashion 2015- What were they thinking!

As we continue with the Oscars 2015 round-up, I want to list the worst dressed, or what were they thinking segment!

Lady Gaga (Source: Invision)

We have to start this list with Lady Gaga, this was probably what we expected anyways. But this white Azzedine Alaia outfit with ridiculously large gaping sleeves and strange oversized gloves. I never get the creative theme that Lady Gaga tries to achieve.

Felicity Jones (Source: Invision)

Felicity Jones, star of Theory of Everything, was a huge disappointment in this Alexander McQueen dress. It was all wrong- the neckline looks uncomfortable, the fabric and skirt looks unflattering, it looks like a bridesmaid dress. Fail!

Marion Cotillard

Maybe I don’t get high fashion, but this white polka dot Christian Dior Couture gown that Marion Cotillard wore was a mess! She has such an awesome shape, so why is she wearing this blanket! And what is the black price tag like thing on her back?

Lupita N'yongo (Source: Getty Images)

Last year’s fashion darling Lupita N’yongo underwhelmed in this 6000 pearls dress by Fransisco Costa as part of Calvin Klien Collection. I am sure it is high fashion, but the top part looked too busy! Huge disappointment!

Emma Stone (Source: Wireimage)

Emma Stone wore this pale green embellished number by Elie Saab- the dress overwhelmed her in my opinion. Not a good fit for the fashion forward Emma!

Nicole Kidman (Source: Invision)

Nicole Kidman wore a strapless shimmery dress with a red belt. The dress in itself looks like a disco ball, but add a red belt that looks like a ribbon from a gift store, and you have a disaster!

Gwyneth Paltrow (Source: Getty Images)

No this isn’t because of GOOP! Gwyneth Paltrow wore this pale pink dress by Ralph Lauren. This dress reminds me the episode in Friends, where Pheobe’s dress has a spill and she covers it with a large Christmas flower ornament. The shoulder flower seems random and out of place.

Jessica Chastain (Source: Invision)

I love Jessica Chastain, and I love this shade of blue- so I was a bit sad to put this on my worst dressed. But this sleeveless number by Givenchy makes the slender Jessica look awkward and out of shape.

Naomi Watts (Source: Invision)

Naomi Watts, my style favorite, wore this rather casual looking dress by Armani Prive. It reminds me of the casual beach tunic with the bikini peeking through the sides. Not the right occasion!

So that rounds it off folks! Sound off your views! Au revoir red carpet season!

Golden Globes 2015- Fashion Stars…

Hi guys,

So I take the role of fashion commentator very seriously! So as the new award season starts, I have my game face on and I am ready to take charge.

Here are my favorite looks!

Golden girl and red carpet star Amy Adams was stunning in a lilac one-shoulder Versace gown-it was a risky choice- the color could wash her but she rocked it!

Jessica Chastain

Jessica Chastain has always been my red carpet favorite- I love her spunk and energy! She looked stunning in this Atelier Versace gown. I loved the look on Jessica though I feel like the gown is a bit deja vu. I also didn’t like her hair style, but all in all, still a top look for the evening.

Emma Stone (Source: Getty Images)

Another star of the red carpet is Emma Stone- she has the spunk and style to surprise us time and time again. This time around, she managed to stun everyone in a Lanvin jumpsuit with sparkles and a bow. Cute and stylish!

Naomi Watts (Source: Getty Images)

Naomi Watts went with the color theme and chose a yellow dress by Gucci- what makes this outfit shine in my list is the Bvlgari snake neckalace. I am absolutely obsessed with it- hubby are you listening?

Dakota Johnson (Source: Getty Images)

The 50 shades of grey star Dakota Johnson looked incredible in this sparkly Chanel number. Perfect outfit for the star of the most awaited movie of 2015!

Kate Beckinsale

My red carpet favorite Kate Beckinsale didn’t disappoint- she rocked this plunging Elie Saab gown. With her hair up, she showed the world how to do red carpet right!

Emily Blunt (Source: Getty Images)

Emily Blunt was one of the stars in the popular white theme, sporting this sleeveless Michael Kors gown with cutouts. While she looked great in the gown, I wasn’t a fan of her hairstyle.

Kate Hudson (Source: Getty Images)

Another star in white- Kate Hudson took up the style and sex appeal scales. This risque Versace gown fits Kate as a glove and she looks incredible!

Jennifer Lopez (Source: Getty Images)

Jennifer Lopez looks like Jennifer Lopez- she is wearing her typical sequins and sparkles Zuhaid Murad gown, looking all leg and gorgeous.

Lupita Nyongo

Last year’s IT girl Lupita N’yongo rocked this floral Giambattista Valli gown- this outfit had mixed reactions. I actually loved her choice- she has less pressure, so she chose an outfit she loved- more power to you Lupita!

Oscars Fashion 2014- Best looks!

Hi everyone!

So excited to post about the Oscars fashion. I have a small gripe before I get started- E! decided live from red carpet should stop showing the short interviews, and make it all about the views of Kelly, Guiliana and some reality TV randoms.

There were a lot of different trends on the carpet- ranging from nudes to black and white, to bright vivid colors!

MY FAVORITE LOOKS

Sandra Bullock

One of my favorite looks of the awards was Sandra Bullock. As a Best Actress nominee, I was hoping she would wear something spectacular and blow me away. And she delivered- in this stunning strapless Alexander McQueen gown. Absolute winner!

Jennifer Lawrence

Best Supporting Actor nominee and fan favorite Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t disappoint- she stayed loyal to Dior Couture, and chose a red strapless number with a statement necklace. Flawless!

Charlize Theron

This look had very different reactions, but I absolutely loved Charlize Theron’s look in this gorgeous fishtail black Christian Dior gown with invisible straps. It stood out in the red carpet as a wow look with its unusual neckline. Another stunner- the Harry Winston diamonds- can someone please get it for me, pretty please?

Lupita Nyong’o

Fashion it girl Lupita Nyong’o was the star of the red carpet season this year, stunning everyone in her debut film and fashion choices. I loved her pick for her Oscars debut, where she wore a plunging blue fairytale gown by Armani. In her interviews, Lupita said she this gown was made for her, and she chose it because it reminded her of her native Nairobi. Perfect choice- love it!

Amy Adams

I love Amy Adams- she is always the star of the red carpet, and she has been rocking the red carpet this award season as Best Actors nominee. When I first saw her in this strapless navy blue gown by Gucci with Tiffany jewels, I was slightly underwhelmed. It felt like she wore the gown before, and the hair and accessories were just average. But when I looked at pictures, I added her to best dressed- the fitting is simply impeccable! She looks like a movie star!

Cate Blanchett

Best actor nominee and favorite to win Cate Blanchett always wears unique outfits on the red carpets that keep people talking. Cate chose a nude Armani gown with silver beaded details. The gown got diverse reactions, but I loved this dress- it was different and she stood out in the sea of gowns.

Naomi Watts

Naomi Watts looked incredible in this gorgeous white Calvin Klien gown- this gown by itself is fine, but she made it to best dressed with this edgy Bulgari necklace.

Oscars 2013: The Fashion Rundown

Hi all! It is close to the end of the award season- the crown of all award shows- and also the last of my fashion posts, at least for 2013!!

My favorite looks of the night

Source: Wire Image

Jennifer Lawrence (Source: Wire Image)

The style winner and award winner for this award season is Jennifer Lawrence- no contest!!! She is absolutely stunning in this Christian Dior couture ball gown. The strapless neckline accentuates her incredibly thin frame and the backwards diamond necklace adds that young touch! She totally owned the night!

Jennifer Garner (Source: Getty Images)

Favorite actress & person+favorite color+ favorite actor= PERFECTION! I love Jennifer Garner- she has such a naturally glowing face and has the perfect smile. She looks incredible in this purple Gucci gown. And I am obsessed with her Neil Lane necklace- unbelievable is an understatement!! And with Ben Affleck as her escort, it is the perfect look!

Naomi Watts (Source: Wire Image)

Naomi Watts was absolutely stunning in this embellished grey Armani prive gown. The neckline, embroidery, hairstyle were all incredible. It was something different on the red carpet, and definitely made an impression!

Jessica Chastain (Source: Wire Image)

Jessica Chastain was a hot favorite of all fashion websites in this metallic Armani Prive number- I love the dress but I am not a fan of her hair style. It was far too tame and stuck to her scalp. I would have loved this look if she did something more stylish with her hairstyle!

Kerry Washington (Source: Wire Image)

Kerry Washington looked incredible in this beaded coral Miu Miu gown. The beading and color were stunning, I only wish she did something better with her hair, but awesome look overall!

Amanda Seyfried looked incredible in this Alexander McQueen gown- it was a fantastic pick for her, I absolutely loved the embroidery.

Best supporting actress nominee Amy Adams looked like a movie star in this powder blue Oscar de la Renta gown. Her hair and make up was flawless and she let the dress be the star with minimal jewelry.

Other popular looks of the night

Sandra Bullock (Source: Getty Images)

Sandra Bullock looked great in this embroidered black Elie Saab dress. She does look stylish but the gown looks really familiar. I feel like I have seen it before on the red carpet. And it is also a very standard look for Sandra Bullock, no surprise…

Catherine Zeta Jones (Source: Getty Images)

Catherine Zeta Jones looked fine in this Zuhaid Murad dress, but it is her face that brought the look down. For a Hollywood star, her makeup looks like it has been done by an amateur.

Jennifer Aniston (Source: Getty Images)

Jennifer Aniston wore a red Valentino gown to the Oscars. She looked great in the gown, but it is her standard look at all awards- California casual hair, tanned face and a solid gown. It was far too typical a look! And I don’t know if you will agree- but I think she went overboard on fillers and botox- her face looks puffy and plastic!

Reese Witherspoon (Source: Getty Images)

Reese Witherspoon looked pretty in this blue Louis Vuitton dress. The fashionistas love this dress, but I am totally not a fan- I really don’t like the bust style. It isn’t flattering even if you are a size A. But her face and hair are totally movie star quality!

Halle Berry (Source: Getty Images)

Halle Berry looks like a futuristic robot in this Versace gown. Normally a fashionista, she doesn’t score any points with this strange look.

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!
