Red carpet season
is at a wrap and went out with a a bang at the 2013 Academy Awards
in Hollywood, California
brought out their best for the Oscar red carpet
and there were so many that did not disappoint! But as always there were a few that lingered the question, "What were you thinking
?!" Here are my best and worst picks from the 2013 Oscar Red carpet!
Hands down, best dressed had to be Jessica Chastain
in Armani Prive
! The Zero Dark Thirty best actress nominee
looked like a true movie star in this nude curve hugging gown that had a detailed beaded design that just enhanced her form! The color of the gown really complimented her red hair that she wore half parted with curls along with modern earrings and a red lip to tie the whole look together! Jessica may not have won the Oscar, but she won in my heart as Best Dressed
Runner Up for Best Dressed
Big winner of the night, Jennifer Lawrence
looked stunning in this white Dior Haute Couture
gown! Even though Jennifer took a tumble walking up the stairs to accept her award, she looked gorgeous while falling! With her hair back and simple diamond earrings, Jennifer made this structured almost bridal looking dress look young and fresh with a thin chain necklace that she wore backwards! Way to go Jennifer! We love you just the way you are!
Best Dressed List
There were so many great looks on this red carpet it was so hard to choose who was the best! Nominee Amy Adams
looked soft and elegant in a grey ruffle Oscar De La Renta
gown that made her look like she was floating down the red carpet. Trend-setter Kerry Washington
looked spring-y fresh in a coral beaded Miu Miu
gown that complimented her lovely skin. Performer and former Oscar winner, Jennifer Hudson
, wore something different with this blue scale Roberto Cavalli
gown that showed off all of her hard work on her body and long straight black hair with bangs screen diva!! One thing I love about Zoe Saldana
is that she always takes fashion risks and she certainly did in this Alexis Mabille
high low gown that looked stunning on her! Performer and former Best Actress winner Charlize Theron
showed off her new pixie hair for a recent roll and statuesque form in this white peplum Christian Dior
gown. Going with an edgier gun metal metallic dress, nominee Naomi Watts
looked amazing in this custom Armani Prive
that made her one of the best on the red carpet!
Sorry to say, but Anne Hathaway
was my worst dressed of the night, not like she would care since she won the Best Supporting Actress award
for Les Miserables
. Even though I am so happy for her, I expected a lot more from her as a nominee to pull out all the stops. This was her moment and when I looked at this Prada gown, all I could see was her nipples which was so distracting. Anne commented that she was supposed to wear a Valentino and that probably would have been the better choice.
