The 85th Annual Academy Awards is officially a wrap, but that doesn’t mean the party is over. The day after the Oscars are just as fun, because pundits like myself have had a moment to officially digest the show and pick out our hits and misses on the red carpet. The Academy Awards are all about high glamour, ultimate fashion, and amazing style. And while not everyone wowed us, there are certainly plenty who ruled that red carpet.
So, without further adieu, here we go!
5 Most Fabulous on the 2013 Oscar Red Carpet:
5. Nicole Kidman
Nicole Kidman ended up on a lot of Worst Dressed Lists today, but I think that she looked gorgeous in this L’Wren Scott gown. The Oscars aren’t about playing it safe—we want haute couture with wow factor, and Nicole certainly brought that to the Oscar red carpet last night.
4. Kerry Washington
Kerry Washington is always one of my favorites on the red carpet. She can do no wrong. Kerry chose to wear another Miu Miu number, this time a strapless melon colored gown with train. The end result was hauteness.
3. Jennifer Lawrence
It was definitely Jennifer Lawrence’s night as she snagged the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook. And even despite a fall walking up the steps to get her Oscar statue, she still remained beautiful in her Dior Couture gown.
2. Jessica Chastain
When I first saw Jessica Chastain on the red carpet, I was speechless. Yes, the nude colored gown wasn’t what I would’ve chosen for her, but the whole package with the gown, the curves, the hair, and that red lippy gave me life. I simply thought she looked like perfection.
1. Charlize Theron
Charlize is my fashion muse. She always gets it right on the red carpet and last night was no exception. She stunned in a white Dior Couture number with form bodice and long skirt. Her short hair and natural makeup made her look like a goddess on the red carpet. Well done, Charlize!
Honorable mentions: Kelly Rowland, Naomi Harris, Naomi Watts, Reese Witherspoon, Amy Adams, and Halle Berry.
2013 Oscar Red Carpet Trends
Let’s blame Michelle Obama for this, shall we? 🙂
Metallic gowns with bright shimmer and high fashion were also popular on the 2013 Oscar red carpet. Very haute!
Backs of dresses:
While the women of Hollywood want to be breathtaking from the front, they also want to leave their mark as they walk away. Which is why this year, some of the best features of the gowns on the red carpet is the back of the dress!
