Academy Awards Fashion 2013

Hey Dolls!!

So if you’re anything like me and practically every other fashionista in the world, you were glued to the television last night to see who wore what at the 85th Annual Academy Awards, commonly known as The Oscars. 

Well, there were some pretty good dresses and overall head to toe looks last night.  My number one pick went to the lovely Kelly Rowland!  She smashed the competition in her Red Carpet correspondent role in this Donna Karan Atelier dress!!!  
My next favorite was Charlize Theron.  She looks amazing with her short coif and all white look and simple jewelry.  You have to be brave and confident to pull a look like this off and that she did.  Charlize is wearing a Christian Dior Haute Couture dress, Roger Vivier shoes, and Harry Winston jewelry.
Another favorite of the night for me was Miss Halle Berry.   Halle dazzles in this Versace sparkling stunner.  She said she wanted to look like a “Bond Girl” and she surely did!!
I also loved Jessica Chastain’s entire look on her.  Everything worked well and pulled together nicely in this copper toned gown with a beaded overlay. She looks very glam in her Armani Prive gown.
Amy Adams looks like a Princess as always in her Oscar de la Renta gown and Moa jewelry.  Something about this look is just gorgeous and fits Amy perfectly.  There is color and details there; it’s very soft and subtle.  But it totally works for Amy and her personality.  It’s a lot of dress but it’s not overwhelming.
I love, love, love Jennifer Hudson’s Red Carpet dress.  But something about the hair feels a bit too heavy for it.  Maybe it’s me, it’s like one minute, I look at it and think its compliments the dress and then when I look closely it doesn’t.  I’m glad that she worse a beautiful color instead of a neutral. Jennifer is wearing a Roberto Cavalli Couture dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Jimmy Choo clutch, and Sutra jewelry. 
Reese Witherspoon came to the Oscars looking oh so fabulous giving me Old Hollywood realness.  She was actually the first girl I saw on the Red Carpet that brought the color to the event.  Her look was head to toe fabulous and you Dolls know I’m a stickler for that.  This Louis Vuitton look suits her well.
How gorgeous was Robin Roberts in her Velvet Blue Marc Bouwer Number?  I’m so happy to see her back in action.  She looked amazing.
Salma Hayek was one of the last ladies to hit the Red Carpet and I almost missed her, but I’m so glad I didn’t.  This Alexander McQueen dress looks like it was made just for her.  I know we’ve seen this silhouette before, but I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen it on Selma and she knocks it out of the park with this one.  It makes her look taller and compliments her curves beautifully.
 I’m not exactly sure how I feel about Naomi Watts look.  The top of the dress kind of reminds me of a costume BeyoncĂ© would wear for one of her performance.  But the thing I do like about it is the way it fits her body.  She is not spilling out of it nor does she look like the dress is wearing her, she is wearing the dress.  I could have gone for a bit more pizazz with the hair, make up and accessories.  Naomi is wearing Armani Prive dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, and Neil Lane jewels.

Jennifer Lawrence looks great in this Dior Haute Couture dress, a Chopard jewels, a Roger Vivier clutch, and Brian Atwood shoes.  Being a young girl, she still brings her youthfulness to the carpet in this look.  It’s very soft and demure.  Now as we know this ended up being a bit too much dress for her at the end of the night, poor girl took a fall.  But at the end of the day it doesn’t matter because she went home with the GOLD!!!  Congratulations Jennifer!
I had to include my FAVORITE couple of the night in this list.  How cute are Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan.  This girl is very pregnant and she is sizzling on the red carpet.  They complement each other so well and to me they were the best looking couple of the night. 
That wraps it up for me and my 2013 Oscar Fashion recap.  Did you Dolls tune in?  Who were your favorites? 


  1. Naomi watts and Kelly Rowland looked awesome! I like Zoe Saldona dress too!

  3. I love Osacr's red carpet there's something wonderful about seeing people dressed so fabulously and beautifully! I love most of your best dressed list but I'm not a big fan of Jennifer Lawrence and Reese witherspoon's dress. Jessica Chastain, Charlize Theron and Kelly Rowland were my top 3 best dressed for the night.

    1. I love the Red Carpets for events as well. I loved Reese's look. Jennifer's was OK. She pulled it off. Too bad she ended up falling in it.

  4. I always watch the oscars for the dresses. I love, love your choice.
    Have a fabulous weekend.
