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.

10 notable looks from SAG Awards 2014

Hi everyone

As award season rolls on, last night was the SAG Awards 2014. I felt the gowns at SAG awards were better than Golden Globes. I hated fewer dresses, and there were a few WOW moments.

Here are the top 10 looks (some wow and some bad) from the SAG awards

Amy Adams (Source: Getty Images)

Amy Adams was the star of the night in this blue one shouldered Antonio Berardi gown with waist detail. She looked every inch the superstar!

Lupita Nyongo (Source: Getty Images)

The new fashion darling- Lupita Nyongo has been on everyone’s fashion must-watch list. I was a bit underwhelmed with her choice with the Golden Globes, because it was so much like Gwyneth Paltrow wore at Oscars 2012. But with this bright turqoise Gucci dress, I totally get the hype about her. The highlight for me with the Fred Leighton jewelry that completely complemented the dress.

After the Golden Globes debacle, Jennifer Lawrence got it right in this strapless Dior gown. I am still not a fan of the pixie haircut, but she looked awesome!

Sofia Vergara (Source: Getty Images)

My fashion favorite Sofia Vergara looked stunning in this silver embellished Donna Karen gown. I think the reason I am obsessed with this look is because of the diamond and emerald Victorian styled necklace by Amarpali jewels- absolutely gorgeous necklace!

Cate Blanchett (Source: Getty Images)

Cate Blanchett wore a baby pink Givenchy gown- this look has me torn- while it is a toal departure from her gown to the Golden Globes and is unusual, I feel like it makes her look pregnant and heavy on top. Not sure if I love it?

Sandra Bullock (Source: Getty Images)

Sandra Bullock wore an effortlessly sexy Lanvin frock with bow detail. But her hair and makeup made her look kinda old. I also wish she wore some jewelry with it- either long earrings or a necklace. Just a tad plain for my taste!

Julia Roberts (Source: Getty Images)

Julia Roberts wore a Valentino jumpsuit- from top down, she looked like a movie star. But the bottom half looks more like clown pants. I am just not a fan of the look! There was so much hype about her return to the red carpet, and so far she has not really brought her fashion A game.

I should start this by saying I love Kerry Washington! She looked like a movie star at the Golden Globes and totally pulled of the pregnant chic look. But the look is absolutely ridiculous- Kerry wore a fuchsia blouse and midnight blue skirt- custom Gucci, and flashing her midriff. I get that the baby bump is the new sexy- but this just makes her look fat! The skirt makes her look a lot bigger than she is, the top is so blah! Just doesn’t work!

Jennifer Garner (Source: Getty Images)

Jennifer Garner wore a strapless midnight blue Max Mara gown with a train- it wasn’t a wow gown, but she always knows how to bring it to the red carpet. Movie star!

Elisabeth Moss (Source: Getty Images)

Elisabeth Moss looked divine in a red strapless Michael Kors gown with black belted waist. I feel like her hair styling was a bit plain, but overall still a good look.

That rounds it up! What do you think- Do you agree with my picks?

Golden Globes 2014 Fashion Lowdown

This is the start of another exciting award season- my favorite time of the year, where I can dream about being thin, fabulous and fitting into these glamorous gowns!

The Golden Globes was a big disappointment- there weren’t many WOW looks, a lot of the gowns looked like gowns we have seen before. There were a lot of colors- from bold reds, to canary yellows…

Here are some of the best looks!

Amy Adams (Source: Getty Images)

Winner Amy Adams looked stunning in this two toned Valentino gown with plunging neckline. I love her, she is one of the biggest stars of 2013- Amy seems to be in every movie! Go Amy!

Image

Cate Blanchett (Source: Getty Images)

Another winner, Blue Jasmine star Cate Blanchett wore a gorgeous black Armani Prive gown. I loved the lacy details of the gown, and the backless style really suited Cate. What I am more obsessed about is the green diamond Chopard earrings- such class!

Image

Julianne Marguiles (Source: Getty Images)

I am obsessed with Good Wife and Julianne Marguiles- the show gets better and better with time. But I digress- I loved Julianne Marguiles’s gown. I love the black and gold concept gown by Andrew Gn- this gown got mixed reactions, but I really loved it!

Image

Margot Robbie (Source: Getty Images)

The Wolf of Wall Street star Margot Robbie stunned in this V neck cream Gucci gown- it is hard color to look good in, but she really rocked the look!

Image

Kate Beckinsale (Source: Getty Images)

Kate Beckinsale looked stunning in this Zuhaid Murad gown- I feel like I have seen her in metallics in other award seasons, but hey if the look works then why not!

Image

Amber Heard (Source: Getty Images)

Sexy starlet Amber Heard rocked this navy blue Versace gown, showing the world her stunning legs. I am not a fan of the messy hair raising bouffant- too messy!

And here are some of the worst looks!

Sandra Bullock (Source: Getty Images)

Gravity star and fan favorite Sandra Bullock wore a black, pink, and blue Prabal Gurung gown. The gown was all wrong- too many colors, not the right fit- it just did not work for her.

Julia Roberts (Source: Getty Images)

I was really looking forward to Julia Roberts’ return to award season- and her first look was a total disappointment. Her black and white Dolce and Gabbana gown looked more like a waitress outfit from the top.

Jennifer Lawrence (Source: Getty Images)

My last award season favorite was a complete and utter disappointment in this white Dior gown. The gown looked more like a trash bag that was held together with two awkward belts. Sigh!

71st Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Paula Patton (Source: Getty Images)

Another fashionable star that disappointed was Paula Patton- the cream gown with huge ruffle embellishments completely enveloped her sexy figure.

Kaley Cuoco (Source: Getty Images)

I love Kaley Cuoco and I love the concept of a floral gown but looking at her in this Rani Zakhem gown made me realize that floral prints almost always resemble curtains!

Zoe Saldana (Source: Getty Images)

I am very torn about Zoe Saldana’s Prabal Gurung gown- I love it on top, but with the shoulder straps, detailed in the bottom, and other embellishment, there is way too much going on. Such a pity too! I watched Prabal Gurung win Project Runway- I am a huge fan!

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

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.

And the most ridiculous Oscar looks…

After covering the best looks, I have to talk about the most ridiculous ones too!

Source: Getty Images

Angelina Jolie likes black, and I get it- that’s my favorite color too. And she has an amazing body so she wants to flaunt her pins, and she has every right to do so. Angelina’s make up was flawless and her hair looks amazing. But I am not a fan of this Atelier Versace gown at all, I mean it is black velvet- what is so special about that? To me, there was absolutely nothing about the outfit. And the posing to flaunt the leg was so contrite and felt a bit like “look at me”, she really didn’t need to do that. I mean when she was presenting the awards, she was so fake and posey!

Source: Getty Images

I love Viola Davis, and she looks absolutely lovely but I am not a fan of her gown. I actually loved the color of the Vera Wang gown, I just don’t love the neckline. It looks like they ran out of fabric. It’s a pity too, Viola had a perfect run through the award season!

Shailene Woodley was awesome in the movie Descendants, and I was so excited to see her at the Oscars. She is so young that she could have gotten away with anything but I was disappointed to see her in this dull and drag outfit. Shailene could have done so much more with this, and the dress by Valentino would be suitable for someone much much older!

Source: Getty Images

Sandra Bullock always has fun at the red carpet, last year she was a knockout. But this white and black Marchesa gown is dull and boring, and makes her looking years older. Totally unsuitable for her image!

 

Now that award season is up, I have the gowns withdrawal! It is gonna be almost a year till I get to spend an evening judging gowns on stunning people and dream about of wearing something that fabulous!
