Ahhh, the Oscars. One of my favorite fashion nights of the year. Let’s talk red carpet. No. First, lets talk about what a disaster Anne Hathaway and James Franco were as hosts. I was so looking forward to seeing how they were planning on hosting the show due to the fact that they were so different from any other hosts from previous years. As a fan of them both, I was very much disappointed. Not only because Anne Hathaway was so over excited THE WHOLE TIME, but because James Franco’s stoned demeanor made me wonder if he even wanted to be there. Lame. Anyway, back to the good stuff: pretty dresses.
I must say that I wasn’t as thrilled with the Oscar fashion as much as I loved the Golden Globes, which is surprising coming hot off of fashion week where so many red carpet worthy gowns could have been chosen. Of course, there were lots of gorgeous dresses and no major misses to speak of, but there weren’t as many home runs as I had hoped. So, to maintain the integrity of my in depth red carpet coverage, I’m only posting looks that I absolutely LOVED as apposed to a ton of things that were OK mixed in with the amazing stuff.
Cate Blanchett’s Givenchy Couture gown is getting some mixed reviews, but I, for one, absolutely loved it. The color, the structure, the silhouette, the beading– everything is so original and fashion forward while still being wearable and visually appealing. Plus, in my opinion, Cate can do no wrong. I could sit and listen to her talk all day.
I mean, I don’t want to have to say I told you so, but…. I think I called this one like a month ago. Mila Kunis looks stunning in this violet (also a big trend) Elie Saab gown. Again, very original and fashion forward while still maintaining it’s relatability. The color also happens to be amazing on her.
