Fashion Diaries: The Best Dressed at The Oscars 2015

The Oscars were on last night (just in case you didn’t know) and anyone who’s obsessed with fashion and movies were glued to their TVs watching! Neil Patrick Harris was the host and he was alright. The opening monologue was probably the highlight of his hosting duties but everything after that was kind of okay. There were two incredible musical performances that stood out last night. Lady Gaga’s The Sound of Music tribute proves why she is talented; and John Legend and Common hit it out of the park with their performance of their Oscar-winning song, Glory. The winners were all as expected with a few surprises (hello Birdman). My favourite part of the night? Meryl Streep’s reaction to Patricia Arquette’s comment about pay equality for women (duh, she is the queen of Hollywood). With that being said, let’s talk about the fashion! Everyone was dressed to impress, with a few misses (as always). There were 4 major fashion trends last night: Pale Colours, Red, Statement Necklaces and Visible lip colour! Below is a list of my best dressed along with my worst dressed:

anna-kendrickAnna Kendrick in Thakoon

Anna looked incredible in this peach flowy gown. The embellished neck detail and the cut out on this dress is beautiful. Her hair and makeup were also flawless making this one of her best dressed ensembles ever!

jennifer-hudsonJennifer Hudson in Romona Keviza

JHud makes wearing yellow look easy. This strapless body-hugging column dress fits her like a glove. The detailed belt on her waistline is pretty. Dangly earrings, swept back hair and gorgeous makeup finished the look.

america-ferrera-oscars-2015-academy-awards2 America Ferrera in Jenny Packham

This beautiful slate bluey grey flowy gown looks incredible on America. The matchy jewelry is not tacky. The belt on her waistline is nice. She finished the look with wavy hair, simple makeup, and a pop of colour clutch!

Margot Robbie is the ultimate glamourista. This black tailored gown looks exquisite. From the sheer sleeves to the low-cut front, everything about this is amazing. The gorgeous zipper statement necklace is what elevates the style quotient here.

x700Rosamund Pike in Givenchy

Red is Rosamund’s colour. She looks gorgeous in this gown. I love the front slit and the scalloped neckline. This look is just so pretty with the simple hair, makeup and matchy shoes! Rosamund really hit it out of the park!

x700-3Lupita Nyong’o in Custom Calvin Kline

All hail Lupita! She knows how to take a fashion risk. This embellished pearl gown is gorgeous! Lupita looks incredible. This look is styled so well that everything else is neutral leaving the dress to be the main attraction!

slide_402388_5049308_compressed Emma Stone in Elie Saab

How pretty does Emma look in this gold embellished gown? The cut of this dress and the long sleeves are perfect for the Oscars. Her hair and makeup are also flawless, which enhances this whole ensemble to another level!

x700-4Naomi Watts in Armani Prive

Everything about this is perfection. The embellished brick print on the dress is perfection. The peaking sparkly black tube top is perfection. Her wavy hair and makeup are perfection. This whole ensemble is pure perfection!

slide_402388_5049288_compressedJennifer Aniston in Versace

Jen has really brought her A game this awards season. The pale embellished gown looks ravishing! The detailed work on this dress is gorgeous. Jen sticks to her signature hair & makeup, which allows her dress to be the focal point.

slide_402388_5048916_compressed Reese Witherspoon in Tom Ford

Reese looks gorgeous in this unique icy blue column dress. I love the black material used for the off the shoulder sleeves and to accentuate her waistline. She keeps it simple with the accessories, makeup and hair.

slide_402388_5049208_compressedScarlett Johansson in Versace

Is it hard to believe that she just had a baby a few months ago? She looks gorgeous in this emerald-green gown. The neckpiece on this dress is amazing! The hair, the makeup, the minimal accessories works harmoniously together.

x700-2Dakota Johnson in Saint Laurent

Dakota’s red gown looks beautiful on her! The detailed work on the one sleeve elevates the style quotient of this dress. This is tailored perfectly. The accessories and makeup are on point but I love that she went with a ponytail!

felicity-jones Felicity Jones in Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen

She may have not won an Oscar this year, but she definitely won every fashionista’s approval with this ensemble! The pale metallic grey dress is marvellous. The detail on the bodice and the neck is beautiful! The hair pulled up and the makeup was flawlessly done.

slide_402388_5049178_compressed Jennifer Lopez in Elie Saab

Is she REALLY in her 40s? This nudey blush princess ball gown looks amazing on Jen! The embellished work on the dress is exquisite. I love that she went with a pony tail and pink makeup. Seriously, JLo looks amazing!

slide_402388_5049102_compressedAnna Faris in Zuhair Murad

Anna Faris looks so adorably pretty in this icy white embellished strapless flowy gown. She is someone who is starting to make an impact on the red carpet. The belt and the clutch match perfectly with her dress. She keeps it simple with the hair and makeup.

x700-1Cate Blanchett in John Galliano

And this is how you wear a simple black gown to the Oscars! The sleeveless column dress with a tiny train is gorgeous but what elevates this outfit? The blue layered statement necklace. The hair and the makeup was super simple, which is perfect for this kind of ensemble!

slide_402388_5048538_compressedJulianne Moore in Custom Chanel

This was her year. Every award show she went to, she was dressed to impress. Chanel did a great job on this artistic gown for Julianne! The colour, the cut, the exquisite detailed work and the tiny train is all perfectly done. The bold lip and the hair pulled back finishes this amazing look.

My Worst Dressed of the night?

rs_634x1024-150222170250-634.Nicole-Kidman-Academy-Awards.ms.022215Nicole Kidman

All I really have to say about this dress is…Why? The red belt is out-of-place and reminds me of duct tape. The colour of this gown is too disco ball like and her clutch doesn’t go with it at all. Better luck next time, Nicole!

Fashion Diaries: Best Dressed Celebrities at The Grammys

Who watched the Grammys last night? This is one show I wait for every year because you literally get front row seats to the best concert ever. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that everyone is dressed to impress. The Grammys last night belonged to one man…Sam Smith! I’ve adored this man for the past year and his music/album has to be one of the best out there. All the performances of the night were incredible; I mean I can’t even choose one that I loved more than the other! Also, who cringed at Kanye West’s “ima let you finish” 2.0 moment (dude you’re an awesome artist stick to that)? With that being said, the fashion on the red carpet was fun to watch! Almost everyone (with the exception of Kim Kardashian who wore a gold bathrobe it seems) was dressed to impress. Below you will find my best dressed at the Grammys, in no particular order of course (Also, I’ve linked you my favourite song by each of these stars):

This polka dot long-sleeved gown is so adorably chic! Kelly looks pretty in this ensemble. I love that she went with neutral colours, given her lavender coloured hair. Her makeup was as flawless as her gorgeous updo! She was dressed to impress as always!

020815-grammys-neil-patrick-harrisNeil Patrick Harris

How dapper does Neil look here? Seriously, Neil brought his A game to the Grammys this year. In a classic suit and tie, this cutie comedian looks great! Everything is paired harmoniously well together and I love that he kept everything neutral!

She is seriously starting to become one of the best dressed celebs out there. This whole ensemble is pure perfection. The low-cut blazer top is done tastefully and she looks very classy. My favourite part of this whole look is her hair and makeup, it’s flawless and she looks great!

chriss-teigen-john-legend-grammys-2015-grammy-awardsJohn Legend and Chrissy Teigen

Two words: Relationship Goals. These two are becoming the cutest dressed couple to look out for at any event. Chrissy’s cut out white gown looks stunning on her. The accessories, hair and makeup are perfect. John looks handsome in a grey suit. In fact, it’s really hard for John to look horrible in anything ever.

jennifer-hudson-grammys-2015-grammy-awardsJennifer Hudson

This is how you wear a white strapless body-hugging gown to the Grammys. JHud looks incredibly beautiful in this ensemble. The pop of colour on her lips elevates the style quotient of this whole look. I love the minimal accessories and the dainty shoes!

taylor-swift-grammys-2015-grammy-awardsTaylor Swift

Taylor Swift is one of the best dressed celebs in the world. Fact. This gradient teal coloured gown is stunning on her. The cutouts on the sleeves and the cape like bottom half is gorgeous. I love that she used purple as her pop of colour through her shoes. TSwift, you will NEVER go out of style!

katy-perry-grammys-2015-grammy-awardsKaty Perry

Fresh out of her killer Super Bowl performance, Katy looked like a sparkly princess on the carpet. This stunning dress with exquisite beaded work was gorgeous! The pop of colour hair (which has now inspired me to dye my hair purple) looked awesome with this whole look and her makeup was flawless!

beyonce-grammys-2015-grammy-awards2Beyoncé

All Hail Queen B. Seriously, does she ever look bad? I wish I could wake up and look like this. Everything about this look is perfect. The hair is perfect. The makeup is perfect. The beautiful black gown with intricate work is perfect. There’s a reason why she has written the song Flawless.

gwen-stefani-grammys-2015-grammy-awards2Gwen Stefani

If I could have anyone’s personal style, it would have to be Gwen’s! She always looks amazing. The black cropped jumpsuit with amazing work on the top half is beautiful. The asymmetrical strapless cut is very fashion forward. Gwen’s makeup is amazing and she ditched her signature red lip!

ed-sheeran-grammys-2015-grammy-awardsEd Sheeran

How cute does Ed look at the Grammys? I think anyone who knows me, knows how much I adore this man and his music. Ed looks great in this ensemble. It’s classy casual chic. I love that he stays true to his own personal style while always looking dapper.
