THE MOST BLESSED AND SACRED DAY HAS FINALLY COME AND GONE. The 85th Academy Awards, aka. My favorite day of the year (As previously discussed a million times on the blog/in life.), are over already and boy, oh boy, did we have some great dresses grace the red carpet. Shall we begin?
Amy Adams won my heart for Best Dressed of the Night. She looked more like a princess than ever in this stunning Oscar de la Renta gown. I love me some Oscar de la Renta, this is a fact, so this entire situation has my heart.
Jennifer Lawrence was my second favorite for Best Dressed of the Night. This Dior gown was FANTASTIC. I mean, it was everything I love. It was huge and so wonderful. I mean, yes, my future BFF did trip walking up the stairs to accept her Oscar statue for Best Actress, but if anyone was going to trip and embarrass themselves on national television, it would be her. This is how I know we are soulmates.
Jessica Chastain finally wore something flattering and pretty! This Armani Prive gown was just really quite gorgeous. And don't get me started on her hair and makeup, because that was flawless all around.
Samantha Barks was seriously overlooked by all the awards shows, I think. She seriously stole the show in "Les Miserables." She was all I could stare at. Her face, her tiny little waist, etc. She's great. This dress is also so great.
Someone decided to invite Kristen Stewart to present. Now, my best friend and I watched the awards show in an hour (Instead of 5) so we missed a whole bunch of the nonsense from Seth MacFarlane, KStew, etc. so I'm not sure how she did, but either way I don't love it. I do, however, love her Reem Acra gown. It's stunning. I feel bad for her though because she did have to use crutches on the red carpet. So sad.
I am still quite obsessed with Kerry Washington's fashion choices as of late and I really quite like this Miu Miu gown. It's so pretty and I heart gown trains.
So, I like the top of Zoe Saldana's Alexis Mabille Couture gown, but I kind of really dislike the bottom. The ombre gray situation happening is not my favorite. But the top, the top is so pretty!
Jennifer Hudson's body looks bangin', but she looks like an Avatar in this Roberto Cavalli gown.
So, I adore Reese Witherspoon, but I don't love this Louis Vuitton gown. She is way too tiny and there is just way too much fabric for such a tiny body. You know? Of course.
Anne Hathaway is really annoying me as of late. But that's besides the point. Her Prada gown was not great. The darts, aka. Dress nipples, were so distracting, it's all I was paying attention to. But, on a more positive and optimistic note, her hair is growing back nicely, her jewelry was gorgeous and her Ryan Gosling look alike husband is still really attractive. So, you know, there's that.
I am very disappointed in Jennifer Aniston and her hair. She generally has impeccable hair, but oh no, not last night. It was all over the place and I'm not having it one bit. Her gown was alright, it was kind of wrinkled and I think she should've worn at least one or two pieces of jewelry to spruce it up. It seems like a general missed opportunity.
Naomi Watts looked like a gorgeous alien in this Armani Prive gown. I didn't like it at first, but now it's weirdly growing on me and I'm totally okay with it actually.
Charlize Theron looked like a grown up Miley Cyrus on the red carpet. I think I like her Christian Dior Haute Couture gown. I mean, I think I do? I'm not super excited about it.
I DON'T KNOW WHY NICOLE KIDMAN WAS THERE. Ha ha I mean, I never know why Nicole Kidman is there, you guys. I don't. Only I do this time because she was a presenter. Now, her L'Wren Scott dress. It's interesting. I don't like the belt, mostly. It's just too much, I don't know what to focus on. I'm hoping it just doesn't photograph well? But I'll give it to her because she actually looks so great. I'm proud of her.
Halle Berry wore some type of Beetlejuice looking Versace gown. Nope. Nope. Nopers.
Jellyfish Garner. I mean, Jennifer Garner. She looked gorgeous in this jellyfish-esque Gucci gown. I mean, it's similar to something she's worn before, but I still love it. Also, her hair and makeup is flawless. And watching her tear up in her seat while her hubby, Ben Affleck, accepted the Oscar for Best Picture "Argo" (Which, by the way, was such a freaking good movie) was tugging on my heart strings. I adore it.
Adele wore a black dress, so like, alert the presses, you guys!
Jessica Chastain attended the Women in Film's 6th Annual Pre-Oscar Party on Thursday and I'm not super excited about what she's wearing. While it's definitely not the worst, it's also definitely not the best. I'm mostly on the fence about this Preen dress because it's making me nervous for Sunday. Please don't let me down, Chastain. Please don't let me down. But, sort of related, I do like the random green designs on the side of the dress. I'm trying to be a little positive here.
With the Oscars, aka. My favorite day of the year (With the exception of my birthday and Christmas, of course) tomorrow, all the stars are in Hollywood and ready to dazzle us. Tonight, the Independent Spirit Awards took place and I am quite pleased with what went down. Well, for the most part. I'm looking at you, Laura Dern. Oh, I'm looking at you.
This is actually so wonderful, I adore it. Jennifer Lawrence looks plain hot (Yeah, I don't know?) in this Lanvin outfit. I adore it. And her makeup is flawless too, she's no longer super tan, which I appreciate. Her loose top knot is also great. So many good things to say about this. I can't wait for her to win her Oscar tomorrow. I mean, what? ;) (Yes, that winky face was completely necessary and no, I'm not sorry 'bout it.)
I am still really obsessed with everything Kerry Washington has been wearing. Her style is impeccable and chic and I love it. I mean, it looks like Spring literally threw up on her and I could not be more obsessed with it. This Giambattista Valli look is perfection.
This is what Emily Osment from "Hannah Montana" looks like now, you guys. I'm not entirely sure what she's wearing, but I am 100% sure that I hate every single piece of it. It looks like a Barbie wedding dress. And not a good one. Speaking of which, I had the BEST wedding dress for my Barbie. It was totes haute couture and my Mother recently threw it out. I mean, I know I wouldn't ever use it, but for like, framing and nostalgia reasons I wish I had it still. (I hope she reads this. I will never forgive.)
I admit that I didn't know who Laura Dern was initially, but I was so thrown off by this disgusting (Yes, disgusting) outfit that I was too distracted to even Google her. This is HEINOUS. Now that the initial panic and shock of this heinousness has worn off, I Googled her and found she is 46, which makes her about 30 years too old to be showing her teal bra through her shirt. Also, what is that cuff? Why are there so many colors in this outfit? What is her hair? What is life?!?!?!?!?!?!
I'm obviously stupid obsessed with everything Jennifer Lawrence does/says/thinks/looks at, etc. so with all of that obsession, you can only imagine how much I love her new Miss Dior Spring 2013 campaign. It exceeded all of my expectations and that's saying a lot. She looks flawless and I'm kind of dying over her hair. It should stay this way forever. Or not. Because she also really rocks blonde. You know, do whatever your little heart desires, Miss Lawrence and I'll love you either way. You know, in a BFF way, not a restraining order way. Just clearing that up again.
YOU GUYS. Jessica Chastain is getting ready for Sunday and this time in a good way. She attended The Wrap's Pre-Oscars Party in this Andrew Gn dress. I mean, I don't think I should love it, but I do. I really do, you guys. She needs to remember that colors, such as this bright royal blue, look so great with her hair and complexion. And the fact that this dress kind of has a cape on it is just perfect. Oh, I have so much love for Miss Jessica Chastain.
I mean, Emma Stone is just so great, you guys. I adore her. And I actually adored this Stella McCartney dress she wore to the Berlin International Film Festival of "The Croods" until someone mentioned on Facebook that she looked like an egg... Thanks a lot.
Yep, lots of Taylor Swift happening on the blog today. Haters gonna hate. And she has a lot of haters, believe you me. So, with that being said, she graces the cover of ELLE's March issue and I actually really like what's going on. Well, for the most part. I mean, am I ever fully happy with an editorial?
Her bangs look weird.
I am never a fan of subscriber issues. Like, ever. I miss the days when we got the real covers.
I love absolutely EVERYTHING about what's happening here. This Oscar de la Renta outfit is so perfect I'm dying. Also, yes to her top knot. And yes to the spring-y-ness. This circle in the back reminds me of Emma Stone's ELLE shoot though. Quite familiar, you know?
No? This is the biggest no of the shoot. No to everything.
Taylor Swift attended the Brit Awards earlier today (Or I guess tonight. Time change confuses me.) and I am actually loving what is going on here. She rocked this hot Elie Saab gown. I'm actually obsessed. I mean, we're used to seeing her in Elie Saab, but it's not a neutral, you guys! I'm so happy. Also, her makeup looks flawless and I'm not hating her bangs. So like, this is great and I'm quite happy about it.
The Costumer Designers Guild Awards were tonight and they brought out some of my favorite people. By "favorite people" that was obviously directed towards the appearance of Kristen Wiig, aka. My future adoptive Mom. I want her to adopt me so badly, you guys. I can't even deal.
Ugh, she is so perfect. I love this plain little white dress situation going on and I'm kind of obsessed with her hair and her shoes. I love you, Mom. I mean, what? I don't know.
The only thing I like about Amy Poehler's Prada dress is that it has a mini-cape already attached to it. I mean, when is that NOT handy? Real talk. The dress is really tight though. Like, too tight. I don't understand why she always wears really tight dresses, it truly baffles me.
I'm not exactly sure what's going on here with Lily Collins, but I'm digging it big time.
I'm going to be 100% honest when I tell you that I'm super excited to see "Spring Breakers" mostly because I have a girl crush on Ashley Benson and I know it's going to be one heck of a hot mess. During the Paris premiere yesterday, the girls gave us a little sneak peek of said, hot mess. Shall we?
Ashley Benson: She looked hot. I'm not going to lie to you guys. It has also come to my attention that I think we would be really good friends. Just saying. And like, yeah, there's a lot of boobage going on, but whatever.
Selena Gomez: Girlfrand (Yep, that happened.) went with a super short Gucci dress. I have a few problems, one being the shininess of the dress and the second being the side boobage. But I mean, haters gonna hate because her legs look fantastic.
Vanessa Hudgens: I actually have no words for her. In retrospect, this Rafael Cennamo dress is actually quite fun, but on V Hudgens it looks like a bad prom dress. I mean, don't even get me started on her prom hair.
Rachel Korine: Aka. The director's wife is the tamest of them all. Well, so far...
Okay, you guys, I'm getting really nervous for Sunday. Oscar day, duh. Jessica Chastain is obviously the one I'm most excited to see (Besides Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Leonardo DiCaprio? (FINGERS CROSSED), etc.) but I'm getting nervous for her Oscar dress. I think she's just getting the bad ones out of the way. Right? Right. Because, she attended the Writers Guild Awards on Sunday in this band-aid looking Dior dress. I am not such a fan. I still love her so, though!
Emma Stone attended the Berlin premiere of her new animated movie, "The Croods" on Friday in this ridiculous Gucci dress. Now, it's so ridiculous that I actually don't even hate it. I mean, look at those sleeves! I love them? I mean, I hate that I love them, naturally, but I still do have some love in my heart for them. It's clearly an inner battle I'm having with myself... Also, I'm getting a Sienna Miller vibe from this and I'm loving that.
Okay, well this explains why traffic was so bad after work. I knew there was a premiere. I sensed it. The "Oz The Great And Powerful" LA premiere was tonight and I am quite impressed. And quite mad that I didn't drive farther down Highland. Missed opportunities, y'all. In other news, as much as I loathe "The Wizard of Oz" I am actually quite excited for this movie.
Okay, well I am majorly girl crushing on Mila Kunis right now. I mean, I always am, but right now especially. I adore this Dolce & Gabbana dress. I love the silhouette, the color, the detailing and I'm having an even bigger love affair with her Sutra earrings. She's wonderful.
I think Michelle Williams is the cutest little bean, but I don't know if I love this Prada dress. I mean, it's very HER and I respect that, but the length is weird to me. I also don't know how I feel about the shoes, so that's an issue as well.
I love the color of Rachel Weisz's Victoria Beckham dress, but I don't like the dress itself. The white thing, or whatever that is, is throwing me off. But can we talk about how cute it is that they are on a yellow brick road? Ah attention to detail, I love you.
