Oscars 2013 Best Dressed

So without even paying too much attention as to who won what, I jumped straight online to see what everyone wore to the Oscars... obviously.

Overall, there were a few flawless looks, a few terrible looks not even worth mentioning and quite a few mediocre, nice but nothing special looks. In my opinion, the Oscars is the time to really push the boat out and go all out- full glamour or nothing.

I've selected the looks below because I thought they were the best of the night... if I've left out a few big names it's because I didn't find them worth commenting on really.. like Anne Hathaway... really Anne, a Tiffany's necklace with that high neckline?


Amanda Seyfried gets an A+ for this lilac gown. At first look, I thought it might be an Oscar de la Renta but just as good, it's an Alexander McQueen. The detail on this is stunning if looked at closely and the keyhole neckline is lovely, not too revealing.

OMG Charlize Theron! I almost gasped when I saw this white Dior Couture. Flawless. She really works her short, boyish haircut too- everything about this look seems so pure and pristine. Accessorized well too with Harry Winston bracelets on either wrist.


Jessica Chastain showed everyone how it should be done. Custom Armani gown with Harry Winston diamonds- old school Hollywood glamour. That sweetheart neckline looks gorgeous on her.


I wasn't sure whether to put Jennifer Hudson on here or not. The Roberto Cavalli is gorgeous- love the long sleeves and the thigh split. I think her hair looks luscious with that full fringe too but who carries a blue clutch and wears a blue shoe with a blue dress? Really? The shoe almost ruined everything for me... a simple black would've worked a lot better.

When I saw Kelly Rowland I just felt like she deserved an award for turning up dressed so exquisitely! She worked this Donna Karan and the monochrome is right on trend too. Love the way the neckline folds over the side and the skirt is wrapped around her figure perfectly to show off her to-die-for body. Kelly's seriously becoming a style icon and I love it!

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Couture- one of my favourite looks. This dress is a bit hard to pull off but she did a good job. It's larger than life and the minimal accessories really helped keep the focus on the dress.

Halle Berry still has it & won't lose it in this striped Versace gown. Love the shimmer, the silver and black combination, the plunge neckline, the silver belt... okay, I love everything.

Sandra Bullock did not get enough credit for wearing this incredible Ellie Saab gown. Seriously, the sheer panels, the beads and the lace? Wow.

You couldn't miss Naomi Watts in her silver Giorgio Armani gown. At first I wasn't sure if it looked tacky but it certainly didn't, I really like the neckline, it's very unusual and makes a change from the usual strapless style.
