Oscars Best Dressed


emily_bestdressedTo me, Lupita was the Oscars.  She was so genuine and so thoughtful that you couldn’t help but fall for her.  I don’t know about you, but I was in tears!  Her fashion performance this award season has been stellar so I knew she wasn’t going to disappoint.  This pretty powder blue gown stood out on her beautiful dark skin.  But it might have been her smile that completed this look.

Cate Blanchett.  You are a movie star.  Her whole look was perfectly and carefully curated – her stylist deserves a raise!  I especially loved how her earrings matched the texture on the dress!

I don’t normally love what Gulianna wears but tonight was the exception.  I loved how she kept it simple with the hair and jewels so not to take away from the dress. Out of all the dresses, I think this is the dress that I would pick to wear myself.  I love the color!


Oh the Oscars!  I had such a hard time picking my Best Dressed!  How could you not pick Lupita and Cate?!
Emily put it perfectly.  Lupita was truly magical last night.  And she was right.. “You’re never fully dressed without a smile!”.  You can’t deny that she felt the magic last night and it truly showed!  She deserved it.  Beautiful inside and out.  She looked like Cinderella… “No matter where you’re from your dreams are valid!”
Cate was amazing, elegant, poised, regal, divine, humble last night… she stunned on the red carpet too.  Her earrings were perfect!  They looked like opals.  Totally unique.  Loved.  (I think her dress most looked like the dress I picked!  Just saying.)
I loved Emma Watson’s look too!  I know not many will agree with me on this one.  Her look really went unnoticed last night but I think it really was cool (like her Golden Globes look).  I would have loved to have seen a cool necklace or bracelet to tie the look together but I still loved the simplicity of the dress.
I had a really hard time picking (Emma, Angelina and Kate tied for third for me!)… I feel badly not including them.  So my Very Honorable Mention goes to Angelina Jolie and Kate Hudson.
Honorable Mention
Sandra Bullock looked absolutely beautiful last night. The reason I gave her my number one spot is because there isn’t one thing I would change about her look. The bracelet and earrings compliment each other well. Her hair was elegantly swept to the side opposite of the draping on her dress. She had matching navy blue nails. I really think she just nailed this look.
Lupita looked wonderful last night too. I have to agree with everything my sisters said. She just radiates joy and you can’t help but smile when you look at her. The only thing I wasn’t crazy about was the random gold snake bracelet she wore, which clashed with her earrings, headband, and the sweet look she was going for. I give her a 99%. And she most definitely wins the BEST DRESSED OVERALL for this entire award show season. She shined on every single red carpet. That girl knows what she is doing (or at least her stylist does) and I love that she wears so much color. She is such an inspiration to so many people and I am so happy for her and her win.
And just like my sisters said, Cate Blanchett looked stunning as well. The earrings, the dress, the makeup. The only thing I wasn’t crazy about was how her hair was down. It was just a little too busy for me. I think I would have liked to see her hair half up half down instead. But, other than that I adored her look just as much as I adored her performance in Blue Jasmine.
We are so sad award season is over! But, we are already looking forward to next season (especially Caroline who will be able to watch the entire program from beginning to end instead of only being able to watch the highlights because she is abroad)!
