Awards season wrapped up last night with the Oscars taking place in Los Angeles; and although the streets were flooded with unexpected rain, Hollywood’s elite still made it onto the red carpet in their fancy designer wear. Here’s a closer look at the night’s best and worst dressed.
Dakota Johnson wows in the night’s hottest color- red; the 50 Shades of Grey actress wore a stunning one-shouldered Saint Laurent featuring a knotted accent. She accessorized with 2.2 million dollars worth of Forever Mark diamonds and though she should have opted for another hairstyle, it’s nice to see that the young actress stayed true to her personality and went for a simple ponytail.
Marion Cotillard is a vision of class in a demure white- you guessed it- Dior. The French actress accessorized with statement Chopard diamond hoop earrings and understated make-up.
Another actress who wowed in red was Rosamund Pike. The sexy Gone Girl brings so much glitz and glam in a strapless Givenchy featuring a mid-thigh slit. She matches her dress with strappy shoes and keeps her hair and makeup simple. Simply stunning!
The always sexy Margot Robbie sizzles in a plunging black Saint Laurent. The Aussie beauty adds red lips and a STATEMENT Van Cleef & Arpels necklace that can literally be seen from Australia!
Jessica Chastain is all va-va-va voom in a custom navy and black sequined Givenchy gown. The stunning actress is all smiles showing ample cleavage and a sexy side slit while walking the carpet last night.
Leggy beauty Chrissy Tiegan wows in Zuhair Murad; saying that she “loooves Zuhair”, the model once again went to the Lebanese designer who put her in a plunging, thigh-high drop-dead gorgeous gown! She upped the sexy by going for a dark lip and a sexy blow-out.
This season’s awards show leading lady, Julianne Moore, is a white vision in custom Chanel. Yes, Karl Lagerfeld designed this breath-taking strapless for the red-haired actress that took over 900 hours to make. Chopard diamonds completed the winning look!
Reese Witherspoon keeps things simple- in a good way- in a black and white color block off-the shoulder Tom Ford gown. She kept her hair down and added tons of diamonds to accentuate her look.
My absolute favorite from the night was non other than Jennifer Aniston! The sexy actress- can you believe she just turned 46?!- surprised everyone by staying away from her go to black dresses and instead, opted for this stunning structured custom sweet-heart neckline Versace. Jennifer let the dress do the talking and kept her accessories to a minimum- her signature blond locks also flowed as she walked the carpet.
I feel bad for Felicity Jones, I really do. Everyone is talking about how she intended to look like a “modern-day Cinderella” and instead, the Brit is ending up on worst dressed lists thanks to this halter, full ruched skirt ice blue Alexander McQueen fail. It’s really hard to believe that the brand’s creative director, Sarah Burton has been working on this dress since December, for the color is completely off and there are just TOO many details to focus on here. Adding insult to injury are Felicity’s severely blunt bangs which conceal her eyes and really make her look like a blast from a past British history book.
Spring came early according to Gwyneth Paltrow. I have mixed emotions towards this powder pink custom Ralph & Russo gown: while Gwyneth’s body is breath-taking, that huge flower on her left shoulder is just too much. Gwyneth, next year, leave your flowers in a vase. At home.
Taking a page out of Heidi Klum’s book, Scarlet Johanssen wore a choker to compliment her Atelier Versace gown last night. The entire look is just too matchy matchy- I don’t appreciate how the necklace is almost chocking Scarlet and I am not a fan of this fabric.
Did you hear? Nicole Kidman got her red belt in karate and she wants the whole world to know it! Is there another reason for adding this “belt” to this otherwise disastrous Louis Vuitton strapless gown?
It’s rather unbelievable to see Zoe Saldana look this good less than 3 months after delivering twins- almost as unbelievable as seeing her opt for a high-school prom-like Versace gown. Although the color is amazing against her skin, those spaghetti straps are so distracting to the eye. The curly haired updo is also a major fail.
Lady Gaga wants to show you that she’s just like the rest of us: she too does the dishes in red gloves and sometimes forgets to take them off before leaving the house. Any other explanation for ruining a custom-made Alaia gown that took over 10 weeks to make? Nope? Didn’t think so!
