I have to say, watching red carpets has to be one of the worst parts of my job….. kidding!!!! I love a good frock at the best of times, but this is what frocking up is all about – I mean, if you can’t wear an amazing dress on the Oscars red carpet, then when can you wear it!
If you want to get into the spirit of the red carpet, you can also read my post on the top 10 Oscars red carpet dresses of ALL TIME! (I know, it was harder that you think!)
But this post is all about today! Here are my faves!
Bling it on.
Embellishment is always big on the red carpet, but this year it seemed to be bigger than ever! There were so many great frocks to choose from – here’s a few that did it well:
Pale and pretty.
Lots of pale colour (and pale skin – tans are so 2010 apparently) on the carpet this year. Jennifer Lawrence looks like a winner already in her amazing Dior Haute Couture (which she still struggles to say every time – cute!).
Not a huge amount of colour on the red carpet this year with black, bling and pale frocks dominating the frock selection. Colour is always fun on the red carpet so here are the stand outs for 2013.
Just between you and me, am totally crushing on Reese Witherspoon’s voluminous hair (even The Boy commented on it!)
and Jennifer Lawrence’s makeup – flawless…..
But as amazing as all the girls previously mentioned looked – there are two notable exceptions – my TWO (yes, two – I couldn’t choose ok?!) My equal best dressed winner are…….
Naomi Watts in Armani Prive – this dress is like NOTHING else we saw on the carpet. Apparently they started planning this dress months ago at the Golden Globes! She never gets it wrong on the carpet, but she has hit it out of the park on this one.
Charlize Theron in Dior. She is the face of Dior so it was no secret what label she was going to wear – but this is up there with my all time fave Gwyneth Paltrow wearing Tom Ford in 2010.
Sleek, elegant and sophisticated – nobody but Charlize could pull this off! That dancers body is amazing, and the peplum and neck detail really give her curves in all the right places….. I’ve still got goosebumps!
Did you catch the carpet today? Who was your bested dressed? Do you agree with my choices or do you have your own pics?
