B E S T  D R E S S E D

rs_634x1024-140302163211-634.cate-blanchett-oscars.ls.3214{Cate Blanchett, Armani // This dress and those applique details are just a dream. She looks like a goddess, just floating along without a care in the world. The nude could easily wash her out, but somehow it complements her skin and hair perfectly.}

rs_634x890-140302160348-634.lupita-nyoungo.cm.3214{Lupita Nyong’o, Prada // Oh my goodness, breathtaking. She set the bar pretty high as she’s been killing it all awards season, but this “Nairobi” blue instantly set her apart from her peers. Only change in my opinion – lose the headband. It makes her look too young.}

rs_634x1024-140302170830-634.2brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-oscar.ls.3214_copy_2{Angelina Jolie, Elie Saab // Angelina Jolie (and Brad Pitt) are practically royalty in the movie star realm, and she totally brought it. This is the definition of confidence and age-appropriate sexy.}

rs_634x1024-140302163756-634.charlize-theron-oscar.ls.3214_copy{Charlize Theron, Dior // Talk about a simple stunner. The fit of this dress could not be more perfect and I absolutely love the nude straps. Top it off with perfect hair, makeup and accessories and you’ve got a winner.}

rs_634x1024-140302165209-634.kate-hudson-oscars-030214{Kate Hudson, Versace // I really have no words except, just look at her. The plunging v-neck accentuates her fit figure flawlessly and that cape takes it from beautiful to outstanding.}

Honorable Mentions: Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Wilde

Okay, to be fair, there really wasn’t any look on the red carpet I thought was just awful. Overall, the gowns were beautiful, but the five below were just some of my least favorites.

rs_634x1024-140302171528-634.Jennifer-Garner-Oscars.3.ms.030214{Jennifer Garner, Oscar de la Renta // I just don’t love this for the Oscars. She looks too much like a high-end flapper and the neckline is too grade school. Spice it up a little bit, Jen.}

rs_634x931-140302160252-634.dax-shepard-kristen-bell-oscars-030214{Kristen Bell, Cavalli // I ADORE Kristen Bell, so I hate to put her on this list. Again, it’s not horrible, but it’s not great either. The dress is fine, but the entire look is a little boring and safe. Also, the middle part hair? No.}

rs_634x1024-140302164511-634.anne-hathaway-oscars-030214{Anne Hathaway, Gucci // This just looks strange. I can’t really put my finger on it, but it kind of looks like she’s wearing an armor breastplate on top of a gown. Sorry, Anne.}

rs_634x1024-140302163305-634.sally-hawkins-oscars-030214{Sally Hawkins, Valentino// Sally, this was your moment! You were nominated for the first time! You could have killed it and you totally lost it. As we saw, the nude and applique were huge trends, but she did not pull it off properly. It looks like this dress was not fitted for her at all and she just threw it on last minute.}

rs_634x1024-140302155018-634-amy-adams-oscars.ls.3214{Amy Adams, Gucci // I was so excited to see what Amy was going to wear after her amazing dress at the Golden Globes … and this was totally underwhelming. It’s a beautiful dress, but the look is just so-so. I would have completely changed the hair and accessories to make this look more sexy.}

  2. Seriously though, Anne Hatheway’s dress looks like it is from Kohl’s. Least favorite for sure.
