My Best Dressed picks from the 86th Academy Awards

3 Mar

So it’s Awards season again and the 86th Annual Academy Awards took place today and I just could not wait to share with you my best dressed picks from the red carpet! Most of the gowns at the Oscars this year had jewel tones throughout them which I love.

Here they are….

Yet again, Sandra Bullock in a silk Alexander McQueen creation, tops my list in one of my favourite colours, Navy Blue! She tops this look off with the addition of amazing Lorraine Schwartz Jewels and Brian Atwood heels!

Kate Hudson, one of my favourite actresses looks amazing in this dazzling Atelier Versace gown which has a stunning plunging neckline which she pulls off so well! She adds Neil Lane jewels to take her look to the next level.

And I can’t leave an Aussie actress out! It just so helps that I also love her heavily embellished gown! Cate Blanchett looked beautiful in this soft, pastel and very detailed gold and silver shimmery Armani Privé gown. The jewels and intricate lace detail of the gown shines on the red carpet and complements her skin tone. She topped her look off with amazing jewels in the form of dazzling giant opal drops set in white gold by Chopard and Roger Vivier shoes. This Aussie has done us very proud this year! A very well-deserved win I think!

My next favourite is the magnificent Charlize Theron in this amazing black Christian Dior Couture gown which she paired with super glamorous Harry Winston jewels. You can never go wrong in classy and sophisticated black!

I loved this pink flowy Atelier Versace gown on Jada Pinkett Smith too. I would have to say this to me is her best red carpet look. Loving the high split, the detail in the gown and how it wraps around her curves and the colour looks amazing on her glowing skin tone! She pairs the gown with stunning Cartier jewels too.

I love how Penélope Cruz flowed in another very feminine pink, flowy Giambattista Valli gown on the red carpet. The pastel pink  colour was a big trend this year. She paired her gown with stunning Chopard jewels.

I also have to give a special mention to Angelina Jolie and Emma Watson who to me, also looked fabulous! Angelina Jolie dazzled in a glittery silver gown by Elie Saab Couture and Emma Watson stunned in her floor length Vera Wang, black and silvery shimmery metallic gown with minimal jewels to let the gown do all the talking! The simplicity of Emma’s look is what makes it so amazing and makes her stand out.

My Favourite Red Carpet Looks at the 85th Academy Awards!

25 Feb

Hey guys, here are my favourite 2013 Oscars’ gowns:

How elegant does Sandra Bullock look? This dress by far was one of my favourites! The detail and work on it was amazing and the colours looked great on camera. I’m sure it would look even more amazing in person.

Maria Menounos looks dazzling in this hot pink, fitted gown and her hair looks to die for, thick and bouncy with lots of volume!

A Black and White Affair!

27 Feb

The 84th Annual Oscars showcased some fabulous white and black gowns! I didn’t think the fashion at the Oscars could top Anne Hathway’s stunning array of gowns as host last year (she was styled by Rachel Zoe the most amazing stylist to the stars) but some of the gowns this year came very close!

From Jennifer Lopez, one of my favourites who ALWAYS looks absolutely spectacular in everything she puts on, whether it be judging Idol, to roaming the streets of New York, to walking the red carpet, she truly has style and has done it again in this amazing gown by Lebanese Fashion Designer, Zuhair Murad.

To Angelina Jolie, a woman of pure beauty and elegance, who teaches us all how to present ourselves and whose red carpet ensembles always look effortless, especially this black velveteen, strapless number. Loving the high split!

Sandra Bullock (one of my favourite actresses) and previous Best Actress winner is always glamorous when she steps out on the red carpet, in gowns that very few people can pull off.

And of course, supermodel and actress Milla Jovovich does it again in one of my favourites of the night!

I also give a thumbs up to Emma Stone for rocking this fuchsia Giambattista Valli look and E! red carpet host Giuliana Rancic in yet another stunning gown by Lebanese Fashion Designer Basil Soda!
