Oscars 2015: The Best & Worst Dressed List

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!

Red Carpet | And the Oscar for Best Dressed Actress Goes to..

Awards season’s final stop and most important show- the Academy Awards- took place last night in Los Angeles. Hours before the ceremony, celebrities floated on the red carpet in stunning designer gowns and shiney diamonds, but only 5 of them deserve to be on the best dressed list, and here they are!

Jennifer Lawrence 

It only seems fair that Jennifer makes the best dressed list and here’s why: 1) she won the Best Actress Award for her role in Silver Linings Playbook and 2) she wore a Dior Couture gown that was just featured at Paris Fashion Week! Jennifer’s ivory princess like gown made her the Belle of the ball and her pricey Chopard accessories included  23 carat earrings and a 74 carat necklace worn down her back.

Jessica Chastain

She may have not won last night, but Jessica stunned in a bronze Giorgio Armani gown that looks like it was poured over her body. Perfect old Hollywood waves and Harry Winston diamonds completed her look. Surely enough, her million dollar red lipped smile easily won over the screaming crowd!


Jessica Chastain


Sandra Bullock

Although Sandra was not nominated last night, that didn’t stop her from looking like a winner at the Oscars. Bullock made a stunning entrance in this Elie Saab sheer skirted black gown, Harry Winston sparklers, Swarovski clutch, and Jimmy Choos.

Amy Adams

Looking like her alter ego “Giselle”  from the movie “Enchanted”, Amy Adams floats down the red carpet in this powder blue Oscar De La Renta gown, complete with heavy embroidery on the bodice and a full tulle embellished skirt. Amy finished up her look with possibly the best hairstyle of the night and diamond drop earrings.

Naomi Watts

She may not have won (although she was my personal favorite), but she did it again and landed at number one on the Best Dressed list! Following her winning look at the SAGs, Naomi wore a gunmetal Armani Privé gown fit for royalty and worked this asymmetric neckline while flaunting some sexy yet tasteful cleavage. $1.5 million worth of Neil Lane jewels completed the look and made Naomi shine even brighter!

That’s a wrap for a awards season 2013! Stay tuned for much more!

Red Carpet | Memorable Oscar Fashion!

The wait is over and Oscar night is finally here! For many of us fashion enthusiasts, this night is more about the designer gowns, fancy hair, and drop-dead-gorgeous diamonds rather than who actually wins an award!

So in anticipation of what the stars will bring to the red carpet tonight, here are Oscar’s most memorable gowns ever!

Halle Berry

The most memorable dress of the century! In 2002, nominee Halle Berry stepped on the red carpet in this Elie Saab Couture gown with a sheer bodice and strageically placed embroidery. Lucky for her, she even won the Oscar for “Monster’s Ball” and got to show the dress to the world in her acceptance speech.


Halle B


Penelope Cruz

Penelope chose a blush colored Atelier Versace gown for the 2007 Academy Awards with a sweeping train. An elegant updo and natural makeup completed the flawless look!


Penelope C


Charlize Theron

To collect her Best Actress award for “Monster”, Charlize wore a nude Gucci gown to the 2004 Academy Awards. The dress fit Charlize like a glove and she managed to look even more Hollywood glam in her retro waves and statement jewelry.


Charlize T


Anne Hathaway

Before chopping off her hair to play “Fantine” in “Les Miserables”, this year’s Best Supporting Actress nominee dazzled on the red carpet in 2008. Her deep red Marchesa chiffon gown with flowers on the bodice and shoulder looked like a piece of art and the train made the look even more dramatic.


Anne H


Julia Roberts

One year before Halle Berry’s legendary Oscar gown, Julia Roberts turned heads when she hit the red carpet wearing Vintage Valentino. The black dress with white accents is the best thing I’ve ever seen Julia in. That night, Julia won Best Actress for her role in “Erin Brokovich” and I’m sure the gown is one of the reasons why she received a standing ovation as she finished her speech!


Julia R


Michelle Williams

Who could forget the canary yellow Vera Wang gown Michelle Williams wore to the 2006 Academy Awards? With the late Heath Ledger on her arm, Michelle was the definition of boho chic in this mustardy color, along with a side swept-do, red lips, and a statement necklace.


Michelle W


Hillary Swank

When Hillary Swank walked the Oscar red carpet in 2005, everyone thought she looked far too conservative. Fast forward a few minutes and Hillary reveals a cutout down to there in the back of her Guy Laroche gown. She also picked up an Academy Award for her stellar performance in “Million Dollar Baby”.


Hillary S


Jennifer Lawrence

In 2011, Jennifer Lawrence was nowhere close to how famous she is today. But that didn’t stop her from knocking it out of the park in this va-va-voom red Calvin Klein gown. This low cut yet simple gown, along with blownout blonde locks put Jennifer on the best dressed list that year!


Jennifer L


Mila Kunis

Wearing lavender in February can be tricky, but Mila was a vision in this chiffon Elie Saab gown at the 2011 ceremony. The delicate lace is placed strategically in all the right places and the ribbon around the waist compliments Mila’s figure perfectly.


Mila K


That’s it for now, but tune in tomorrow to find out who was best dressed at the 2013 Academy Awards live from Hollywood!
