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!

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!

Red Carpet | This Week’s Best Dressed!

While Rihanna was hands down best dressed at the Grammy awards on Sunday night, she was not the only one bringing fierce fashion to the red carpet this week!

Let’s start off with Miranda Kerr; leave it to the Victoria’s Secret angel to look like a million bucks even in the simplest of outfits. Miranda hits a press event in her native Australia in a simple, yet girly LBD and fun ankle strap floral heels and her signature bright smile!

Mila Kunis hit the red carpet last night in Los Angeles for the premiere of her new movie, Oz- the Great and Powerful in a Dolce & Gabbana cream and lace feminine gown, Sutra earrings, and silver Christian Louboutin peep toes.

Zoe Saldana knows how to make cutouts look classy and she does just that in a cream strapless dress with a peakaboo cutout under the bust. She finishes her look with a red lip, Louboutins, and fun understated gold jewelry.

Whenever I see pictures of Olivia Wilde, she’s usually walking her dog or getting coffee with Jason Sudeikis in jeans, a hoodie, and a baseball cap. So it’s such a nice change to see her looking so stunning in this black and nude Talbot Runhof dress at the launch of Revlon’s luxurious color silk buttercream line. Her Nicholas Kirkwood peep toes scream sexy sophisticated and her natural hair and makeup let the dress shine even more!

For the premiere of her HBO documentary, Life is But a Dream in New York City, Beyoncé makes a classy entrance in an Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture gown. Awkward pose aside, B is simply beautiful in this glittery champagne gown, blown out straight locks and Laurraine Shwartz jewels. All these elements make Beyoncé look like a dream and that’s why she tops the best dressed list for this week!

Red Carpet | Rihanna is Best Dressed at the Grammys 2013!

OK. So I really wanted to have a best dressed list countdown, but Rihanna just caused that to fly out the window! Last night at the Grammys, the stunning Barbadian beauty was in a league of her own; from her gown to her makeup and that beautiful shiney hair, Rihanna was the ultimate best dressed star at this year’s awards!

Wearing a custom made Azzedine Alaia bright red dress, Rihanna owned the red carpet as she walked it. Her flowing gown with sheer panels of chiffon made heads turn, as everyone was reminded of her early good girl style choices.

What made Rihanna even that much more beautiful were her perfectly lined cat eyes, bright red lips, red manicured nails, and her classy ombre waves. Surely enough, the $2 million Neil Lane diamonds and rubies didn’t hurt either!

For the BAFTA awards in London last night, the 38 year old natural beauty chose this gown with delicate Chatilly lace details all over the bodice and sleeves. Complete with a daring front slit, most of the dress was fully beaded to reflect a more glamorous look on the red carpet.

Spotted | Jennifer Lopez at the Las Vegas Premier of “Parker”

Oh wow!It’s only January and Jennifer Lopez decided to land herself on the year’s best dressed list so far!

Jennifer steps out on the red carpet in this demure looking Kaufman Franco white gown looking all classy and elegant.

As soon as she turns around, the sheer side panels from her dress are revealed and JLo’s bootylicious booty is on full display. No one could have pulled this look off better than this 43 year old Puerto Rican Diva. What do you think?

Red Carpet | Top Looks from the SAG Awards

The Screen Actors Guild Awards (the final stop before the Academy Awards) took place last night at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. And since the actresses prefer to save their best dresses for Oscar night, the fashion wasn’t very impressive.

Nontheless, 5 stars managed to stand out from the rest in beautiful gowns and dazzling jewels. Here are the top looks from the 2013 SAG awards:

Amanda Seyfried

Amanda could be easily mistaken for Ariel from The Little Mermaid in this Zac Posen dress. Looking every bit the sexy ocean siren, she stuns in this midnight navy blue sweetheart gown and ruffled hemline. The cherry on top of the cake is the Lorraine Shwartz pendant necklace and shiney blond locks!

Michelle Dockery

Downtown Abbey’s Michelle Dockery goes vintage chic in this Chado Ralph Rucci column number. The sheer side panels add a little va-va-voom to her otherwise demure look. Michelle completes her look with a side updo and sexy scarlet lips. Way to be sexy and classy all in one look!

 

Michelle Dockery

 

Jessica Chastain

Following her Calvin Klein disaster at the Golden Globes, Jessica majorly redeems herself in this tight (almost too TIGHT) Alexander McQueen gown. Putting plenty of cleavage on display, Jessica’s loose red waves are the perfect match to her red dress. To top it off, she chooses a Water by Harry Winston necklace that is simply breath-taking to say the least! Can’t wait to see what this gorgeous red-head will wear at the Oscars!

 

Jessica Chastain

 

Sofia Vergara

It wouldn’t be the best dressed list if Sofia Vergara wasn’t on it! Possibly having a dress rehearsal for her upcoming wedding, Vergara stuns in a white Dona Karan Atelier sexy gown. White bridal platforms and a million dallars worth of Neil Lane diamonds finish of her look. Sofia knows that she owns this red carpet. And if you have any doubts, simply check out that pose!

Naomi Watts

There are barely any words to describe how beautiful Naomi Watts is at the SAGs. Looking lovely in a gray lace Marchesa gown, Naomi’s blond hair delicately falls down her left shoulder in a side side-swept do and rich raspberry lips compliment her elegant features. Faberge earrings, an emerald cocktail ring, and shimmery clutch round up the look. Naomi Watts is a vision of class and in a class of her own!

Following the SAGs, the final stop for awards season are the all important Academy Awards. Untill then, the upcoming Grammy Awards are sure to keep us entertained with the wacky fashions we’ve become accustomed to. Stay tuned!

Red Carpet | Best Dressed at the Golden Globes 2013!

The Golden Globe 2013 Awards show took place 2 Sundays ago in Los Angeles and the stars came out to celebrate a big night for TV and Film and award the past year’s achievers.

So many beautiful ladies strut their stuff down the Red Carpet, but only 5 of them landed on The Best Dressed List!

Sofia Vergara

This Columbian beauty sure knows how to bring effortless glam to the red carpet! Sofia- who usually favors big names (such as Vera Wang) for award shows- went for a sweetheart, yet very caliente black gown by Filipino designer Michael Cinco with sequins all over. Sofia completed her look with sleek straight hair, red lips, and gorgeous Loraine Shwartz diamonds!

 

Sofia Vergara

Kate Hudson

I have to say Kate Hudson hasn’t looked this beautiful since wearing that amazing yellow satin gown in “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days”! She chooses a second-skin black belted Alexander McQueen gown with embroidery all around the neck. The gown’s gold details and her hair color perfectly compliment this entire look and make her stand out from the crowd. Way to go Kate!

Kate Hudson

Jennifer Lopez

If there’s something we know about JLo, it’s that she looks good in anything Zuhair Murad makes! After wearing his designs for her Dance Again world tour, Jennifer slips into this nude illusion gown complete with a train for the Golden Globes. She finishes up the look with a side swept curled-do, Jimmy Choo clutch, and Louboutin heels. Casper Smart is one lucky man!

 

Jennifer Lopez

Miranda Kerr

Proving that she can look just as sexy in clothes as in lingerie, Miranda Kerr choosese this Zuhair Murad gown with a cut down-to-there and a slit up-to-there and hits the runway…ah I mean red carpet! She seals her look with old Hollywood glamour waves, rich dark lips, a sassy model’s attitude, and Orlando Bloom on her arm; Miranda is a flawless beauty and she’s not trying to hide it!

 

Miranda Kerr

Jessica Alba

How stunning is Jessica Alba posing on the carpet looking like Summer in the middle of January? Jessica is perfect in an orange fitted Oscar De La Renta gown, loose waves, bold tangy lips, and a furry Roger Vivier clutch. And if the dress doesn’t quite do it for you, how about that stunning Mrs. Winston by Harry Winston necklace? That’s a whole lot of $5.8 million of beautiful!

 

Jessica Alba

Well done to all these gorgeous ladies! Awards season is just beginning and the next stop is the SAG awards where actors honor other actors. Let’s see who will be honored with the biggest award; best dressed at the SAGs! Stay tuned!
