… 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

Margot Robbie

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!

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.
