Oscars 2013 Best and Worst Dressed!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. A LOT has happened to me over the last year, and I’m going to try to do better this year to post more frequently…and maybe start a new blog? But anyway, enough about me, let’s talk about DRESSES! Without further ado…

BEST:

Naomi Watts in Armani Prive - I was really bored with the carpet until she stepped on it in this dress. And I normally don’t care for Prive. But this was hands-down the best dress of the night. Creative, elegant, and unlike anything else on the carpet. I can’t gush about it enough.

Halle Berry in Versace - She has been making some questionable choices lately, so I was pleasantly surprised when she stepped on the carpet in this. It fit her like a glove, and the geometry was so interesting.

Charlize Theron in Dior Couture - It was the hush heard across the carpet, and I’m not even talking about her hair. It’s so hard to do white without going bridal, but this didn’t. There was one thing I didn’t care for though - the awkward train in the back. I wish it had started under the peplum.

Stacy Keibler in Naeem Kahn - I literally could not believe I was putting her on my best dressed list. I also cannot believe she’s lasted this long with George Clooney. Ok, back to the dress. This was like a slinky metal Deco masterpiece. And the head to toe styling was right on the mark. I’m actually proud of her.

Zoe Saldana in Alexis Mabille - I have to admit I’m not familiar with this designer, but now they’re on my radar. A lot of people may find this dress weird, but I like it because of the details, the belt in particular. So many people play it safe these days, and I’m glad Zoe didn’t tonight.

Jennifer Hudson in Roberto Cavalli - This was kind of a wild card for me. But Jennifer rocked it, and her styling really helped keep this dress sophisticated. And of course I love some blue sparkle!

WORST:

Melissa McCarthy in David Meister - COME ON FASHION WORLD, can’t one of you dress her in something other than a giant, horribly colored sheet? There are plenty of women in Hollywood that are plus size, and they still manage to look great. Someone make Melissa a dress that she actually deserves. This is tragic.

Kristen Stewart in Reem Acra - Okay, I know you’re thinking I’m getting on the “I hate Kristen” bandwagon here. But seriously. If you have to bring crutches with you, STAY HOME. She drew too much attention to herself. And she looked like an idiot. I saw her in the background of a carpet interview shaking her leg like she had to pee. NOT WORTH IT. And the dress itself was ill-fitting, and difficult to keep up with said crutches. Boo.

Catherine Zeta Jones in Zuhair Murad - Trying to look like a human Oscar statuette is in poor taste. Plus, this dress just made her look like an old Jersey housewife pumped full of silicone and botox. Ick.

Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen - It pains me to put a McQueen dress on my worst list, but this looked like a late-90s prom dress. I think if it had a different neckline it would have gotten off with a passing grade. The color wasn’t doing her any favors, either.

Anne Hathaway in Prada - The nipples seen ‘round the world. If Rachel Zoe is still taking credit as her stylist, she needs to either focus her attention on her “fashion line” and let Annie get styled by someone else, or quit the “fashion line” altogether. I heard Annie say she picked this dress 3 hours before the awards. REALLY?

Kerry Washington in Miu Miu - A lot of people are probably going to be mad at me about this. But this also reminded me of a late-90s prom dress. Or a child’s dress. It would have looked more appropriate shortened and worn by Quvenzhane Wallis.

Because everybody else is doing it….

Hi. I like design, fashion, entertainment, photography, history, crafting, travel and culture. I'm too indecisive to pick one thing to talk about, so I'm going to talk about a little of everything. Welcome to my world.
