#1: Joan Rivers and most of the E! Fashion Police may disagree, but my absolute favorite look from the 2013 Oscar Red Carpet was Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen.
#2: I must be really drawn to Alexander McQueen because my second favorite Oscar Best Dressed pick was the lovely Salma Hayek also in McQueen.
#3: The dress that made the biggest statement was absolutely Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta. This is such a statement red carpet dress that’s both elegant and whimsical.
#4: Unlike the majority of the fashion community, I wasn’t crazy about Jennifer Lawrence’s white Dior number on the red carpet. But, the metallic dress she rocked at the Vanity Fair After Party was 100% Best Actress worthy.
#5: Jessica Chastain looked like a living Oscar statue in Giorgio Armani.
The glamour of the red carpet is the ultimate union of Hollywood and Socialite America. Awards shows always seem to make me believe that by this time next year, I too could be walking the red carpet in a couture gown and millions of dollars worth of jewels complete with a personal bodyguard to follow me around making sure no one steals them.
That being said, there are a few amazing celebrity looks that went down the red carpet last night that I’m particularly obsessed with. First and foremost, my #1 Best Dressed is Jessica Chastain in a classically beautiful Alexander McQueen. It seems McQueen can do no wrong when it comes to huge events and I think it’s so cute that she brought her Nana. I’m going to have to learn how to wear a cape correctly because Gwyneth Paltrow couldn’t have looked more regal in a white Tom Ford gown. I also adored Cameron Diaz in Gucci. Her dress gave an elegant burst or color on the red carpet both the hair and accessories went perfect with the dress making her look like every actress should at the Oscars.
Other huge 2012 Oscar obsessions of mine include the gowns of superstars Viola Davis, Angelina Jolie, and Penélope Cruz. Viola Davis looked wonderful in Vera Wang. The green looked incredible on her and I loved that she kept her hair natural. Her personality and natural beauty truly shined through. Angelina Jolie upped the sexy factor on the red carpet in a black Versace. The red lip was the perfect touch to this look. Penelope Cruz dazzled like a red carpet Cinderella in Armani Prive. Truly red carpet royalty.
