Charlize Theron | Christian Dior Haute Couture
I have to admit there was far too many bridal inspired dresses on the red carpet, however one that stood out for me definitely had to be the Dior Haute Couture gown Charlize Theron wore. It fit her shape beautifully and had a strong, structural bodice which I feel alot of the dresses failed to have. Perfect.
Zoe Saldana | Alexis Mabille
This was one of my favourite dresses from the entire red carpet and funnily enough I was equally obsessed with it on the Spring Haute Couture catwalk. Take a peek here
Sally Field | Valentino
I've loved Sally Field ever since I first saw Sybil, but although she may be an exceptionally talented actress, never did I think I would be inspired by her fashion choices. However she stunned on the Oscar red carpet with her vibrant, elegantly sheer Valentino gown. In a way I sort of feel it's like a grown up version of the dress that Rihanna wore to the Grammy awards, anyone else get this?
Alicia Vikander | Elie Saab
Elie Saab has to be one of my favourite dress designers and I really had hoped (or had expected to see) more of this designer on the red carpet. There are so many styles I had mentally picked out from the Haute Couture show for many of the attendees. Wouldn't you agree the S|S'13 collection had Oscars written all over it?
Halle Berry | Versace
I've checked out a few websites covering the Oscar red caret fashions this morning and it had became apparent that on more than one occasion Halle Berry has popped up on the 'Worst Dressed' list and I have to say I find this relatively unfair. Ok, so she didn't wear a pale colour, head to toe lace or off the shoulder dress. But if getting on the 'Best Dressed' list means dressing like a bride to be then I'd rather stick to Halle Berry's way of dressing. Who says it's illegal to exude a little sexiness on the Oscar red carpet?
Samantha Barks | Valentino
I loved the simplicity and classic cut of this dress so much and with little to no black on the red carpet it really stood out. My only annoyance and it really is rather small is that her arms look strange due to her holding the pocket's for every shot. Aside from that I really thought she held her own amongst a sea of acting royalty.
Lily Collins | Zuhair Murad | Vanity Fair
I adore Zuhair Murad's creations so it was no surprise that this particular dress was one of my favourite's from all of the after parties. I don't think it could compliment Lily Collins figure, complexion and style anymore if it tried. The midnight blue is simply outstanding.
Amy Adams | Oscar de la Renta | Vanity Fair
Although I found Amy's Oscar red carpet gown to be traditionally beautiful, I do feel her after party Oscar de la Renta dress had a lot more pizazz (did I just say pizzaz?) and even with the addition of sparkle remained to be elegantly sophisticated.
Miranda Kerr | Valentino | Vanity Fair
Does Miranda ever get it wrong? Yes I must admit it may not be the traditional style we're familiar with but I truly think this Valentino dress shows a little more personality than a figure hugging, strapless gown that we've previously saw Miranda wear. Stunning.
Nina Dobrev | Naeem Khan
It's nice to see someone having fun with fashion and Nina Dobrev really did take to this Spring's monochrome trend and fully commit to it with this beautiful gown by Naeem Khan (another designer that I was surprised didn't make more of a red carpet appearance). Although she looks stunning I really would have liked to have seen clean, fresh make-up with a red lip, that would have been dreamy.
How was everyone's weekend? I had to work so I can't say I had much time to relax although it was fun all the same.
What did you make of the Oscar red carpet fashion and winners of the evening?
Oh and that fall from Jennifer Lawrence, eek.... she's in good company however, I mean even Carrie Bradshaw fell in Dior....
