So it all went down last night at The Oscars, quite literally, the tent leaked a miniature flood and The Grand Budapest Hotel wiped the floor with everyone. But we’re not about hate, at least not in the top section. Hate is for the worst dressed celebs of last nights classy event, but that’s a different post. But we’ll keep it positive first, so first
SOPHIE HUNTER IN LANVIN
Sophie Hunter and Benedict Cumberbatch, and their tiny bump. Debuting marital bliss these wonderful Brits looked every inch the ultimate family. I think the picture speaks for itself, plus Sophie looked seriously stunning in a beautiful Lanvin design and to be honest I’m not surprised Benny Cumberbatch couldn’t take his eyes of her.
REESE WITHERSPOON IN TOM FORD
If anyone was just slightly annoyed at how much work I had to put in to finding out “Who” Reese was wearing last night it would be me. Her #AskHerMore campaign is great, but honestly just tell us you were wearing Tom Ford first, and then be all sly about it. Either way though, this is one heck of a dress which is sure to remain iconic for years to come.
CATE BLANCHETT IN JOHN GALLIANO
When I saw Cate standing on the red carpet, on my laptop whilst stuffing myself with caffeine to get through the night I was just in awe. Her elegant John Galliano dress for Maison Margiela is beautiful but to add that bold turquoise Tiffany&Co necklace was pure genius. It lifts everything, the colour of her skin, it balances out her shoulders, and just adds a bit of Pizzazz to a dress that would otherwise be constituted as lovely but boring. She just looks simply wonderful.
ANNA KENDRICK IN THAKOON
To me, Anna Kendrick’s can do no wrong, and this dress just proves it. My first thought as I saw her arrive was, “No Anna, no!” I really believed this dress would be the wrong everything for her. That the colour would drain her away and that she might end up tripping over on the longness of it all but she didn’t. The peachy colour of the dress is super stunning and her petite frame really carries off this dress to perfection. The elegant neckline with a bit of a sexy key hole front adds to this dresses overall wonderfulness. I love it, the girl did good!
ROSAMUND PIKE IN GIVENCHY
Please give me the courage to find this dress, steal it, diet enough to get into it and then wear it every day and every night until I die or get sent to prison for theft. I can’t get enough of the sexiest sophisticated dress I saw on the red carpet last night. This is just exquisite, and with its waist clinching belt and panels and the thigh-high split this dress literally can do no wrong on Rosamund’s body. Plus the intricate pattern design is literally perfect for this nominee.
KIERA KNIGHTLEY IN VALENTINO
A baby bump on the way, no problem if you’ve got somewhere to go just dress like Kiera. It was another moment of is this dress actually you. I was a bit stumped at first, but the more I saw of this beautiful tulle dress which literally makes Knightley look like a fairy princess I just wanted to see more. Valentino did a fantastic job when this gown was designed. It’s wonderful.
EMMA STONE IN ELIE SAAB
I salute you Emma, you look fantastic and the colour choice is so bold and beautiful. The beading is magical and the pattern in which the dress is beaded kind of reminds me of a cheetah or some sort of wild African animal. Featuring a very risqué thigh split and complete open back this celery coloured dress just oozed sophistication and to my mind a bit of boho-ness from Emma. This dress is perfection and so literally is Emma, who graciously didn’t win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
JENNIFER HUDSON IN ROMONA KEVEZA
Wow. Is there any other word to describe this butter yellow, sunshine-filled dress which Jennifer Hudson donned to the Oscars last night. She just looks breathtaking. It’s simple and elegant and most celebrities would have picked it in a muted tone but nope, not old Jennifer. This colour is just beautiful paired with her skin tone and she looks flawless. She also happens to be my new desktop background? Too much?
MARGOT ROBBIE IN SAINT LAURENT
I want to wear this dress. I know I can’t but I would like to, a lot. Margot Robbie was one of the first celebrities I saw arrive on my TV following of the red carpet last night but she is one of the most memorable. Flawless, sophisticated but slightly edgy with her pretty jewels and plunge neckline and sheer sleeves. Definitely worthy of an Oscar itself that dress.
Of course there were so many others who looked beautiful on the red carpet last night, but I have neither the time or patience to sit and write about everyone so I’ll just leave it with these beauties?
