Red Carpet Favorites: The Academy Awards!

It’s finally here! The biggest red carpet night of the year…the Oscars! All red carpets lead to this one. It’s the night of ultimate dress up! This is my Super Bowl. I made Josh and I a fancy dinner…dessert….and settled in for the show. I loved watching talent get recognized, and enjoyed discovering films I still need to see. More importantly…here are my favorite’s in Hollywood’s biggest black tie event.

My jaw literally dropped when Reese graced the red carpet in this Armani Prive’ gown, Neil Lane jewels, and fabulous updo.

I’m not a huge fan of the shape of the gown, but I believe if you are nominated for an Oscar, it’s a safe fashion ‘win’ to wear all sparkle. Amy Adams rocked this L’Wren Scott purple number.

Hilary Swank knows how to walk a red carpet Oscar style. This feathered Gucci gown, complete with crystals, is just beyond.

Surprisingly enough, I loved Sharon Stone. Sort of “Elvira” chic, but oh so gorgeous with all the feathers atop the shoulder of this Christian Dior piece.

I can’t get enough of this ballet number by Lily et Cie 1950 Charles James Couture on Marisa Tomei

I love when an actress thinks outside the box. Cate Blanchett certainly did when she chose this amazingly detailed Givenchy Haute Couture gown

Another lady who knows how to dress for this red carpet of red carpets… Sandra Bullock in this fabulous red Vera Wang

Hailee Steinfeld was adorable and so age appropriate in this sweet, Marchesa tea length dress

I wish Mandy Moore had done something a little different with her hair and makeup to lend more color to this ensemble, but I adore the design of this Monique Lhuillier dress and the fit is simply gorgeous.

And last but certainly not least was Jennifer Lawrence in this form fitting Calvin Klein dress. Simple, understated, yet incredibly gorgeous.

  1. Love these, Reese and Hilary were goregous. Although controversial I agree with you on Cate Blanchett. It’s an awkward dress, but i think she is the only one that could actually pull it off! You didn’t mention any of my personal favorites but I loooved Mila Kunis, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Hudson! My least favorite had to be Nicole Kidman, it was hippy and awkward. What’d you think about the hosts? The internet is blowing up bashing them, but I think they did alright considering all the pressure!

  2. I agreed with all of yours with the exception of Cate’s dress. I was just not digging that dress and thought she could have done so much better for the Oscars! I did love Jennifer Hudson, too. She looked extremely glam! I love this! You make me smile when you talk about this stuff! :O)

  3. Loftyappetite….I l-o-v-e-d Anne’s hosting and think she is so talented. I heard she came out during commercial breaks to entertain the crowd. I appreciate a true performer! James on the other hand…lacked a lot of life in his hosting I thought, sadly…
    I loved the form of J. Hudson’s dress…so Oscars, I just thought the neckline was not flattering 😦 I’m glad you are enjoying Amy! Thanks!

  4. Hey girl! I have been meaning to tell you that I love reading your blogs! You are an amazing writer and I love reading all your opinions on fashion and seeing the photos! It’s a lot of fun and very interesting!
    My favorites were Hilary and Reece! They were stunning! Also loved Mandy and Jennifer! Not Cate so much, didn’t love the shoulder and neckline!
    Anyway, great job sister! Kelly told me about it and I love your blog!
    love ya! Marti
