Oscar Favourites

We love watching the Oscar’s Red Carpet because ordinarily, the dresses are divine. It’s a very specific event; formal, fun and defining. As kids, we’d play dress-up, dreaming of all the fancy dresses we would one day wear, but sometimes, there’s too much work and too little play and the dreaming up of beautiful dresses turns into wearing what’s practical, time-wise and economy-wise. The Oscars, then, is much like grown-up dress-up. For those nominated for awards, what they wear is a serious statement of what kind of roles they would like to play in future, so the choices are anything but frivolous, although sometimes, you wouldn’t know it. It’s wonderful to fall in love with a dress…such an uncomplicated guilty pleasure.

Our favourites of the evening for the 85th Oscars:

Jennifer Garner

{Jennifer Garner in a Gucci gown. A beautiful and luxurious dress.}


{Jennifer Chastain in Armani Prive. She looked so elegant.}

Jennifer Lawrence

{Jennifer Lawrence in a Christian Dior Couture gown. Very debutant-ish and could double as a wedding dress, but it’s stunning and the fabric is beautiful.}

Zoe Saldana

{Zoe Saldana in a Alexis Mabille Couture dress. A very unique design with nice detailing.}

Stacy Kiebler

{Stacy Keibler in an Naeem Khan dress. A very old Hollywood look.}

Honourable Mentions:

Reese Witherspoon

{Reese Witherspoon in Louis Vuitton. The best thing about this dress is the colour, but it needed to be better fitted than it was.}

Amy Adams

{Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta. Love the ruffles and the whimsy of her whole look, but the top didn’t fit as well as it could have.}

Olivia Munn

{Olivia Munn in Marchesa. A really beautiful colour combination, but too many ruffles which take away from the design.}

Maria Menounos

{Maria Menounos in a Romona Keveza dress. Love the clean lines of this dress and it fits her really well.}

Jennifer Aniston

{Jennifer Aniston in Valentino. Love that she’s wearing something very different than usual. The fullness and length of this dress makes it really luxurious.}
