Is it just me or was everyone on their A-game at this year’s Oscars? Seriously, I had the hardest time narrowing down my top favourites. There were many clear trends on the red carpet this year. Navy blue suits and bow ties for men (yum!). Whereas metallic, sheer neutrals (almost flesh tone coloured dresses), and very tamed makeup looks were in for the women. Either way, it was a delight to see everyone dressed their best.
Here are my favourite 7 looks from The Academy Awards (in no particular order):
Lupita Nyong’o: Can this girl ever dress horribly? I swear her fashion track record is full of As (Duh! she is a Yale graduate). She looked stunning in Prada. The headband, the colour, the pleats and the jewelry were on point! Congrats Lupita, not just for your award but for being the next fashion icon.
Leonardo DiCaprio: My heart melts whenever I see Leo. He is one handsome man. He looks dashing in this navy Dior ensemble (love the bow tie). This look was great. A hot man+navy suit= swoon galore. Even though he didn’t win the Oscar, he did make the best dressed list!
Jessica Biel: This was an unexpected favourite. Jessica seriously brought her A-game this year! Her hair, her makeup, jewelry and the colour of this Chanel gown did wonders for this overall look! You might not be nominated J, but you are seriously going to make it on a lot of best dressed lists!
Zac Efron: Oh my Efron! This man can never look bad. He has come a long way since his high school musical days! Although, he hasn’t been nominated for an Oscar yet, he is young hollywood’s finest dressed men! This Calvin Klein suit is seriously working for him…if only he dressed like this 24/7…
Charlize Theron: Best red carpet dress ever. I find that Charlize always hits the mark when she walks red carpets. This amazing Dior black gown was a-may-zing. She looks beautiful. The invisible straps are not tacky. The hair and makeup compliment the dress well!
John Legend: Oh John Legend. He is so adorable. When he sings I swoon, when he dresses in tuxes I swoon, & when he talks I swoon. John looks wonderful in his Versace tux and I love the bow tie! This is nothing new for JL as he rarely dresses horribly and always looks dreamy!
Kate Hudson: Goodness Gracious, Kate Hudson looks gorgeous in this gown! This girl knows how to dress for her body type. The accessories, makeup and hair work hand in hand with her Versace dress. This is a perfect example of how a gown enhances her overall look! Love the faux cape!!
