Oscar Fashion: The Good, The Bad and The Oh Hell No!

Did you watch the Oscars last night? I thought the show was a little boring (sorry Seth MacFarlane but you're no Billy Crystal...or Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who I PRAY will be hosting the Oscars next year!) but luckily the fashion was a little more interesting. I loved Amy Adams' gorgeous, pale silver Oscar de la Renta gown. She went balls out with her dress, there was no holding back and she looked like the belle of the ball. I also loved Jessica Chastain's shimmery copper Armani Prive dress. It was very Old Hollywood (as was her hair and makeup) and it suited her perfectly.

Charlize Theron, in a simple yet elegant Dior gown, gave props to her Canadian-born stylist Leslie Fremar who put together this amazing look. Personally I think more celebrities should credit their stylists for making them look as good as they do! Stars don't just pull their gowns out of their asses you know? Behind every well-dressed celebrity is a great stylist! Anyways, Adele looked equally lovely in a beaded black tulle gown by designer Jenny Packham. Her hair and makeup was beautiful as well.

My favorite dress was Jennifer Garner's pretty and purple Gucci gown. The color was stunning on her and just look at the back! I die!

Everyone on Twitter last night seemed to hate Anne Hathaway's Prada gown but I didn't mind it. I didn't love it either though. I think she could have picked a better color, maybe a bolder one like bright red or royal blue that would have given it a more of a "wow" factor. Anne's dress kind of reminded me of Gwyneth Paltrow's at the Academy Awards in 1999: you don't know whether to love it or hate it. Also, all I could stare at were her nipples. Jennifer Lawrence's Dior gown was beautiful but it didn't knock me off my couch, you know? Still, she looked gorgeous in it.

Jane Fonda, 75, totally rocked this floor length, bright yellow Versace gown proving she can still hold her own among all the young Hollywood starlets. Damn she looked GOOD!

Here's the newly-single, brunette Britney Spears looking happy, healthy and stunning in a Michael Cinco Couture black sequined gown at Elton John's Oscar Party. (I love the brown hair, too!)

Ugh, Helena Bonham Carter and Juliette Lewis. Helena wore this Vivienne Westwood dress in October. She always looks like a hot mess so it's not surprising she put as little effort into her look as possible, just like Kristen Stewart and her un-brushed hair and "I Don't Give A F*ck" attitude last night. And Juliette Lewis's dress is a little bit of a disaster, I must say.

The Most Inappropriately Dressed Award goes to Desperate Real Housewife of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville who apparently (and not surprisingly) designed this dress herself. This might be okay if she were attending the American Music Awards and her name was Lil' Kim but not the Oscars. And can I ask why she was attending the Oscars in the first place?? But Brandi, kudos to you for getting the attention you so desperately crave. Ouch, was that mean?!

Ok, I will end this post with The Best Moment of the 2013 Oscars:

Jennifer Lawrence tripping up the stairs while on her way to the stage to accept her Best Actress Oscar for 'Silver Linings Playbook.' This was almost as good as when her pants fell off at the SAG awards! Almost.

I didn't get to watch last night because I was at soccer but I love seeing all the recaps and best/worst dressed lists. Great picks!

Melanie Liliana said...

I loved this post! I would have to agree with your picks! I absolutely LOVED Reese Witherspoons dress too! Also my girl Britney looks AMAZING with the darker hair! she looks great! and Kristen.. oh my.. what was wrong with her? Can she at least fake that she's happy?


Closet Fashionista said...

Agreed on all counts, haha. Although, Helena Bonham Carter is a wacko so I except her to dress like that, ha ha :p

Courtney Erin said...

Damn, Brandi looks like a hot mess! Yikes. I think my favourite look was Naomi Watts but, by and large, I didn't really see a whole lot last night to get super excited about...

Hugh Jackman stole the show for me when he went running to Jennifer Lawrence's aid - what a gentleman.
I love your picks - I think you've hit the nail on the head of the best dressed list!

Oh Brandi.... too much boob. I always wonder whether they're too self involved to really look in a mirror or if they have a bad group of people in their corner advising. WHO TOLD HER THIS WAS OKAY?

I really loved Amy Adam and Chastain's dresses. And I really do not know why Kirsten bothered to go to the Oscars,clearly she did not want to be there! lool

Kate said...

Agreed, I wish Tina Fey & Amy Poehler would just host everything, always! My favorite dress actually doesn't seem to be getting any attention, but Jennifer Aniston was hands down my favorite! SO gorgeous! I thought Amy Adams also looked super pretty, and mannnn Helena BC is always such a mess.

jamie @ [kreyv] said...

Love your choices. I also don't know why everyone was hating on Anne Hathaway so much. It was not a bad dress...not stunning, but not bad. And Brandi...what is going on with those boobs? That is just not right!

Honourable mention: Nicole Kidman looked like a dream. I loved her dress. Lovely. :)
