My top 9 Oscars Best Dressed
For some reason, I am always drawn to ivorys, blushes, and whites. As you can see here! Really impressed with this red carpet, what a way to wrap up award season!
1). Camilla Alves in Gabriela Cadena. This long sleeve blush silk crepe dress is everything I could possibly dream up. I would absolutely wear this if I had to choose from my top 9 dressed. The color and the draping are absolutely breathtaking.
2). Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace. This ivory satiny shiny gown deep neck is so sexy but with her cape draped, covering her shoulders, it might be the best combination of sexy and sophisticated I have ever seen. I mean, just stunning. I actually didn’t recognize her at first, I did a double take! In my opinion, she has never looked better!
3). Sally Hawkins in Valentio. I guess light colors are always going to be my thing. But embroidery and beading will also be my thing, always! I love the detail and long sleeves, and look at the lace detail at her wrists. The minute detail at her waist breaks up the monotony just enough, the small train and the sheer bottom of her gown make it all work for me! Glad she didn’t try to accessorize, it would have been too much, a simple stud works perfectly.
4). Angelina Jolie in Ellie Saab Haute Couture. I adore dresses/gowns with long sleeves. This metallic number has beautiful bead work. Sheer in the most perfect places, with delicate detail around the neckline. This dress didn’t need any jewelry, except for a simple earring. When the dress does the talking, not need to cause commotion.
5). Calista Flockhart in Andrew Gn. I am absolutely in love with this ivory cap sleeve gown. It’s simple yet not boring at the same time, giving it excitement with the embellished Baroque embroidery on her chest and the texture throughout. Divine.
6). Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Reem Acra. Amazing dress. Her delicately sequined bodice paired with her feathered tulle skirt is the perfect feminine gown. Gorgeous.
7). Kerry Washington in Jason Wu. This lilac color looks amazing on her. I am so so happy that she decided to show a little leg. You can still be sexy and pregnant! Her lip color pulls her entire look together. Her shoes, the draping of the dress, the pin at her chest, just ravishing. Baby glow is really doing it for her!
8). Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen. Glad she finally snapped out of it and made it back onto my best dressed list. I am loving everything navy as of late and this dress is stunning. The draping to one side at her waist and the way it falls is beautiful. Love.
9). Jennifer Garner in Oscar de la Renta. I was tempted to not actually have her on my best dressed list and here is why! I HATE the neckline of this dress and the straps-reminds me of my 8th grade semi formal dress. I also HATE her shoes. The huge platform brings me back to the same place, 8th grade dances where all the girls sat on one side and boys on the other. I’m trying to figure out why on earth would she wear such a high chunky shoe with such a delicately beautiful dress? Other than those 2 hideous things, yes, hideous, this dress is a God’s gift. The beaded tiered fringe is breath taking. Now, if I can only take that dress to my work table, cut some of it up and replace, and CHUCK the shoes, then we can talk.
