I could barely even come up with worst dresseds…There were so many fabulous dresses…ohmigosh I was dying. My worst dresseds were actually a little shocking. Maybe they were trying to take risks and they didn’t really work out? My favorite colors this awards show were surprisingly red and black. You’d think that red would sink in with the carpet, but they were all stand outs and the black dresses were amazing…Look below and tell me your favs!
Amy Poehler – She is killing this black dress. Simple and sophisticated with a little bit of fun.
Kerry Washington – She actually looks like she could be playing Olivia Pope right now, but I glad she doesn’t look like Drew Barrymore.
Hayden Panettiere – not a fan of the hair, but the dress is pretty good.
Julie Bowen – I actually liked this. The sleeves are a tiny bit poofy, but I love the colors together and she’s freaking tiny!
Sofia Vergara – I love that this is different than her usual mermaid gown. It’s like princess Sofia.
Sarah Hyland – I think she looks a little plain Jane here…the dress and the makeup…
Jessica Chastain – Gorg as usual.
Tina Fey – Different for her…still deciding if I like it or not…
Reese Witherspoon – Slightly underwhelming, but the color makes it fantastic.
Paula Patton – I’m not entirely sure if she stole this dress from Lady Gaga, but I’m pretty sure you can see her abs through her dress. Gah. She still looks great. And there is something that I’m loving about it anyway.
Maria Menounos – She probably has one of the best bodies ever. Kill me.
Lena Dunham – Umm she looks great! I love this…it’s still Lena, but I’m loving her!
Zosia Mamet – so classy for my Zosia!
Amber Heard – This slit it worse than the Angelina from last year and I don’t know if she has animals hiding in her hair or she got electrocuted and didn’t have time to re-do it?
Jennifer Lawrence – I’m really sad about this one. I just don’t love it. One of my friends posted a picture of her next to Ariel from the Little Mermaid when she’s in the rope and sheets…I died laughing so I had to repost. It’s true. That’s what it looks like.
Heidi Klum – Twice in a row for her…I don’t know why she keeps picking ugly prints. And it’s also not the early 90’s so I don’t know where that choker came from.
Drew Barrymore – Again with the bad pregnant dresses. (Drew – see Olivia Wilde). These are so unflattering and I could pick flowers off of you.
Sanda Bullock – This looks WAY too big on her and I’m not sure I love the colors together. It looks prom-ish.
Zoe Saldana – There is really a lot going on here and I really don’t like any part of it. It’s just too much.
Aubrey Plaza – Purple People Eater? It doesn’t really fit her…and it looks unfinished on the bottom.
Taylor Swift – I like this because it’s not sequined or metallic and that’s her go-to. Gorg.
Leslie Mann – She never does black so I’m loving this…plus the lace on top is gorgeous.
Mila Kunis – I love this metallic number on her. Flawless makeup as usual.
Jenna Dewan-Tatum – She had a baby less than a year ago…ugh. I love the detail on the dress. Not overdone.
Naomi Watts – I love the way the metallic sheen hugs her in all the right places.
Kate Beckinsale – Don’t hate me because I’m perfect.
Olivia Wilde – Umm cutest pregnant lady ever? This color is amazing.
Michelle Dockery – She’s always so elegant. I love the shape and color on her.
Amy Adams – I love the two tone red. She looks flawless. I want her body.
I had to share some looks from Cannes this year, because there were some really beautiful outfits. Popular trends seemed to be bright prints or black and white. Kind of a big contrast to each other, but I loved them. Carey Mulligan’s looks were some of my favorites, along with Marion Cotillard’s and Nicole Kidman’s. She’s always a shocker for me because I either love her or hate her, but I loved these. Take a look and let me know what you guys think!
I love stripes…if you walked in my closet you would be like woah…jailbird? Just kidding…not exactly like that, but I am drawn to them for some reason. But I think they are so cute for summer especially, and so do these celebs! To get some ideas on how you can style stripes, just take a look below and make a note of your favs! From casual to the red carpet you have tons to choose from!
Chloe Grace Mortez
Sarah Jessica Parker
Katie Holmes – a repeat offender! (not that anyone’s complaining)
So usually I don’t really do a big post on the after-party outfits, but there were some pretty good ones for this year’s Oscars, so why not? I think most of the people who wore my favorite dresses for the show ended up wearing my favorites for the after parties also…For me my favorites were (and not necessarily in this order)…
1. Jennifer Lawrence
2. Naomi Watts
3. Amy Adams
4. Lily Collins
5. Kate Bosworth
6. Diane Krueger
7. Amanda Seyfriend
8. Nina Dobrev
I know that’s a lot, but there were so many good ones, and a lot of people who weren’t at the Oscars, but came after! Let me know who your favorites were!
Jennifer Lawrence in Calvin Klein; Ohmigosh I love this just as much as her Oscar dress. It’s fluid and gorgeous. Everything looks so good on her.
Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta; Wow…again…which one of her dresses do I like more? I guess when you’re nominated you get to pick from the best. Beautiful!
Naomi Watts in Emilio Pucci; Absolutely love this too. She looked fabulous in both of her dresses tonight. Loved!
Anne Hathaway in YSL; I can’t decide if I like this dress better or worse than the one she wore to the show. This one doesn’t flatter her figure at all, but I like the color better. The other one was just so plain and blah. This one is just shapeless. I didn’t like her choices at all. Maybe she’s pregnant?
Selena Gomez in Versace; This isn’t really my favorite. I feel like she’s trying to look a lot older than she is. It’s a pretty dress, but I wish she would have worn something more fun and in a bright color!
Lily Collins in Zuhair Murad; I love this! I love the two different prints and the color!
Kate Bosworth in Giambattista Valli; Gorg! I am glad that she wore a short dress and I love her hair! One of my favs!
Solange in Emilio Pucci; Love the dress! Hate the hair! It’s not bouncy enough…it looks like it’s falling over or else I would love it.
Natalie Portman in Dior; Simple and sweet and beautiful. She always looks perfect.
Georgina Chapman in Marchesa; I love Marchesa…and if you can look this pretty when you’re pregnant…wow.
Hilary Swank in Valentino; I really like this dress, but I would have picked something a little bit less heavy looking for a party. I mean it’s red and fun, and has the light material on top, but I think the train and the long sleeves makes it look a little bit heavier than I would like. It’s gorgeous though.
Olivia Munn in Marchesa; While I think the dress is pretty…It seems to be missing some pieces…lol (and I didn’t even show it from the side). The detailing is amazing though.
Kate Beckinsale in Monique Lhuillier; I love this look! So fun and not too serious. So perfect for a party!
Kourtney Kardashian in Brian Renne and Kim Kardashian in Donna Karen; honestly I don’t know how the Karsdashian’s get into anything important, but I think Kourtney is hilarious so I’ll forgive that…I do think her dress is a little bit too long though. If it was a bit shorter I would love it. Or even all the way to the floor would be better. I think that Kim’s fits better with the event. I don’t really like her white shoes. I think it would look better if they were gold. I just don’t know why she’s even there!
Miranda Kerr in Valentino; I think this dress is very different, but I like it!
Elizabeth Banks in Alexander McQueen; Such a fun dress! I loved it! Orange is hard to pull off, but it looked beautiful. I love this material for spring. I did not really like her hair though. It was too high in the front and slicked on the sides.
Diane Krueger in Giambattista Valli; Ohmigosh I absolutely love this. I think it’s one of my favorites because it’s so different! It’s fun and cute, but sophisticated in a way also! I love actually love the width and sleeves.
Heidi Klum; Umm I don’t really know what to say about this, but I don’t like any of it…the dress, the cleavage, the hair…ugh. I think it makes her look chubby…and “The Body” is anything but.
Zooey Deschanel in Valentino; Usually I really like her funky style, but I didn’t like this. It looked like a sparkly sister wive.
Nina Dobrev in Naeem Khan; She is seriously so pretty. I swear everything looks good on her. I love this print.
Amanda Seyfried in Givenchy; I’m in love with this dress that she performed in and then wore to the after parties! It totally stands out against her skin and I love the strappy details!
Britney Spears in Michael Cinco Couture; I actually like her hair brown here and the dress isn’t too bad either.
Ginnifer Goodwin in Monique Lhullier; I love this whole look! Exactly what I would wear to a party!
Zoe Saldana in Givenchy; This almost reminds me of a nightgown of some sort, but I definitely like it more that the dress she wore earlier in the night.
The Oscars!!! The biggest awards ceremony of the year! This is what we wait for…and for fashion too! Don’t worry. I sat on my couch for probably like 6-7 hours watching the red carpet shows, the actual show, and after parties. I love all of it. Now I have to make sure I got away all of the movies that got so many awards.
But now onto the dresses! What you were really all waiting for right?
Halle Berry: This is amazing. I had too many favorites already, but I loved this! She had this made for her 007 tribute presentation and I think it totally fits! No one else had a dress even close to something like this. (Versace)
Catherine Zeta Jones: She looks beautiful, but I’m pretty sure she hasn’t aged in like ten years. I’m not sure if the dress is my favorite though. It kind of looks like cheap gold foil. She looks great in anything though.
Giuliana Rancic: The more I looked at this dress, the more I started to like it. At first I thought it was boring, but all of the cuts make it so pretty.
Jane Fonda: Are you kidding me? How old are you and you look that good? This color and fit were so great. I guess those work outs really do work. Wow is all I have to say…and that’s in a good way.
Kelly Osbourne: I’m not a huge fan of this dress, but it wasn’t one of the worst. I didn’t like the the neck straps were supposed to be all over the place…and I just didn’t really like the beading or glitter or whatever that was. I thought the cut kind of made her arms look big too. She is in a lot better shape lately so I’d think she would want something that would make her look smaller.
Kerry Washington: These colors on her are gorgeous. She has some of the best fashion sense around right now. I loved this dress and the detail on top.(Miu Miu) Kristen Stewart: This look kind of turned into a diaster. I should have put this on my worst dress, but I think the dress itself isn’t bad. It’s a gorgeous dress (if you watched and saw it on stage…the detailing is beautiful). It’s just too big on her and makes her look bigger, and her hair is messy. It’s the Oscars…at least try. I’m honestly surprised she was invited to present in the first place. (Reem Acra)
Sally Field: I am really shocked at how good she looks. I love this on her. The train is amazing and the color is beautiful. Go Sally!
Adele: I’m glad that she wore her hair down this time. I just can’t get over how every time she gets ready her hair and makeup are perfect. I think she looked great. (Jenny Packham)
Helen Hunt: She is wearing H&M with $700,000 worth of diamonds…so…the only problem with that is her dress is wrinkly and didn’t fit right. I don’t know if she was trying to be affordable because obviously the diamonds weren’t. I’m not trying to knock her being different, etc…but you can tell that it wasn’t a nice dress. Either that or she should have gotten it fitted to her.
Queen Latifah: I like this. I think she looks classy and elegant. I like that she kept it simple.
Little Q: She is the cutest little thing. I can’t get over her! I need to watch the movie that she is in, because she has the cutest little personality and seriously, being nominated at 9?! Anyway, I’m glad they didn’t over dress her and kept her age appropriate.
Maria Menounos: She looks like a darker colored barbie! Gorg! I love it so much. This dress is so bright and beautiful. I’d steal it!
Reese Witherspoon: She had the best hair of the night! She just had a baby and she looks fantastic! The color was gorgeous on her. (Louis Vuitton)
Octavia Spencer: I love her. She is so cute and always looks great. I do think there was just a little bit too much fabric going on, but she definitely knows what is good on her body! She is very classy. (Tadashi Shoji)
Jennifer Hudson: I think she looks fantastic. This color is beautiful. Her hair is amazing. The only thing I don’t like is I think her shoes are clashing a little bit. (Roberto Cavalli) I also think she looked great in her performance dress.
Renee Zellweger: I like the dress, it’s not one of my favorites, but it fits her perfectly. I did not like her hair at all though. It looked like she didn’t even try.
Selma Hayek: At first I didn’t like this very much, but it grew on me. It’s very different than what she normally wears and I think I like it a lot now. I don’t like the little tiara in her hair though.
Olivia Munn: There is something I really like about this, but then something I’m not sure about. I like that no one else wore anything like this and I like the colors.
Sandra Bullock: I think she looks really good, but she didn’t take any risks with this. At first I didn’t like her hair, but then I figured if she had put if up it probably would have been more harsh and I would have liked it less. So I liked it, it just wasn’t a fav. (Elie Saab)
Samantha Barks: I really like this. Very simple, but elegant. I like that she didn’t do something way crazy.
Anne Hathaway: I seriously hated this. Yes, it’s very simple, but then she has on this huge necklace that doesn’t match really at all. The back had this big tie that was messy and looked like she just tied it and jumped out of the car or something. She was up for a huge award and this dress was just boring. It was kind of an ugly color and did nothing for her skin. If you saw her from far away she would have looked naked. Plus her nipples were sticking out so bad! Eek! And…I think she could have used some product in her hair? (Prada) I liked her performance dress way more! (see below) She should have just worn that…even thought that’s not my favorite dress either.
Melissa McCarthy: I always feel bad putting her on the worst dressed, but she always kind of picks big drapey things. Yes she is bigger, but she can get something tailored to her that still looks good. This color isn’t great and the slit is black. It’s kinda weird. I wish she would try a little harder.
Nicole Kidman: I kept wanting to like this, but I just can’t. On the red carpet the top actually looked like leopard print, and I hate the circles at the bottom. I would have like this a lot if it was just all one color. Her body looks great at least. I feel like her hair just looks messy. (L’wren Scott)
Zoe Saldana: I saw this dress and loved the top…then I saw the bottom. I HATE the bottom. I don’t know if it’s the grey colors or just the fact the it’s short and then fades into the colors or what. I think it’s all of it. I just don’t like the bottom half at all and that was enough for it to be in my worsts. It’s not an oscar dress for me at all.
Nancy O’Dell: This fits her really well, but it looks like a smurf rainbow. I hate this too. This should have just been one color of blue and it would have been much better.
Kelly Rowland: This is a long fall from the Grammys. The shape is wrong. It looks like is off kilter or something and her hair just doesn’t look good up in that bun. I know she’s in great shape too, but her legs don’t look good in this dress. I just hate it.
Charlize Theron: She looks so sleek and clean here. I love the shape of this dress. I can’t believe how good she looks with short hair. Her face is just perfect. (Dior)
George Clooney and Stacy Keibler: He’s starting to look older :(, but I think it’s because of the beard. (Armani) She looks absolutely amazing. I love this dress on her. Fabulous pick. The detailing accentuates all of her best features. Plus Clooney is a pretty good accessory. (Naeem Khan)
Naomi Watts: This dress is so modern! The cut is amazing. It fits her like a glove. I love love love the sparkle on this dress. (Armani)
Amanda Seyfried: This dress is so beautiful! I love it! I can’t get over the details on this dress. McQueen makes the best things ever. (Alexander McQueen)
Jennifer Aniston: I loved this dress! I think it’s very different than what she normal wears on a read carpet. The color was beautiful on her and the shape was so fun.
Jennifer Garner: She has looked fabulous this whole awards season. I love this so much! From the color, to the jewelry, to the amazing bow/ruffles trailing down the back of the dress. Can’t get enough! (Gucci)
Jennifer Lawrence: She is another one that has been amazing this awards season. She is really good at being youthful, but not childish. I love the poof at the bottom! It’s like a Cinderella dress…and it was perfect because she won! I really liked the backwards necklace that she wore also. (Dior Haute Couture)
Amy Adams: This is just fabulous. Who wouldn’t want to look like a princess? The skirt is poofy and young and gorgeous. I love it! I would die to wear this. Plus I like that her hair contrasts that dress and is a little bit undone. It’s perfect together! (Oscar de la Renta)
Jessica Chastain: This was hands down my favorite of the night. She looks like an Oscar. Absolutely beautiful. True hollywood glamour. The beading was completely tailored to fit the curves of her body, which was amazing. Her lips were the perfect color and her hair was perfect. Fabulous! (Armani)
I think this was my favorite part of the whole awards ceremony. It’s Les Mis portion of the musical tribute. I literally have watched it like 7 times now. I’m so obsessed! Enjoy!
Also, this is Jennifer Lawrence’s interview after winning best actress. I think she is so cute and so funny.
Stuck in a hair rut? Here are some great hair trends for the fall. From updos to accessories, you can be sure to find a way to try something different!
1. Sleek Ponys
Bar Refalei and Ciara show the difference in a high and low pony, but both a still simple and chic.
2. Tousled Texture
Kate Bosworth is one of my favorites with this look. It’s a totally unfussy, natural looking hairstyle. I also love Kristen Stewart’s look below.
3. Full Bangs
Taylor Swift and Jessica Biel both have full bangs for a modern touch, whether hair is worn up or down.
4. Braided Updos
I LOVE BRAIDS! They add an element of fun to any outfit. Chloe Moretz playfull braids give a youthful flair to her bun and Sienna Miller went for the classic milkmaid. You can always try some plaiting on the sides for a sleeker style.
5. Colorful Hair
Lauren Conrad tried out pink for quick “notice-me” tips, while the queen of color, Katy Perry, rocks a short blue bob. The colors of this season are rich blues and purples 🙂
6. Low Buns
Take your topknot down a notch…Jessica Alba wears a sophisticated and polished version, while Zoe Saldana’s is a more undone way. Remember it doesn’t have to be perfect.
7. Accessorized Dos
I love a great accessory, for dressed up for your, or helping it out on a lazy day! Emma Stone adds some romance to her hair with this gorgeous gold, wreath like headband. Emily Blunt (below) creates a dramatic scene in her hair with her dark feathered piece.
