Red Carpet: Oscar 2015

No comments:
 
The 87th Academy Awards took place yesterday at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles.There are two things that you just can't wait to know about this annual event: who are the big winners of the night and what celebrities wore on the red carpet.While Birdman was declared the Best Picture of the year, actor Eddie Redmayne won the award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his part in The Theory of Everything and Julianne Moore was the winner of the Best Actress in a Leading Role award for the movie Still Alice.

Julianne Moore in Chanel Haute Couture

Let's start the reviews of red carpet's fashion with one of the big winners of the Oscars, Julianne Moore.She wore a white Chanel Haute Couture dress especially created for her by designer Karl Lagerfeld.She is always a stunner and this look is on the best dressed list too.

Felicity Jones in Alexander McQueen

The cast of The Theory of Everything movie were part of the british invasion and wore Alexander McQueen.There is always an actress at events that has a princess moment on the red carpet and this time that actress was Felicity Jones.Her McQueen fairytale gown makes us think if she lost her shoe at midnight and the only thing missing was Prince Charming.

Marion Cotilliard in Dior Haute Couture
Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring 2014

When you say Marion Cotilliard is inevitable not to immediately associate her with the french brand Dior, because that's what she usually wears at big events.So, last night she walked the red carpet in a Christian Dior Spring Haute Couture 2014 white gown that was simple, clean and elegant.Although it's nothing wrong with her look, it's nothing necesarily good either.It's missing the "wow effect" and makes everyone forget about it.

Reese Witherspoon in Tom Ford

It seems like Reese Witherspoon started her collaboration with Tom Ford, because she was present at his 2015 Fall collection in Los Angeles held one day before the Oscars and yesterday she wore a dress created by him.I say she's on the best dressed list.What do you think?

Katie Cassidy in Julien Macdonald
Julien Macdonald Fall 2014

Breathtaking is the word to describe hoe actress Katie Cassidy looked in this Julien Macdonald gown from 2014 Fall collection.A perfect look puts her on the best dressed list.

Cate Blanchett in Maison Margiela

I have to say that i was quite surprised by Cate Blanchett's choice of dress.Not because it wasn't beautiful, but because it was quite simple and usually she wears statement gowns that make her unforgettable.I love that she accessorised it with a blue necklace, but i love more the fact that designer John Galliano makes his return on the red carpet with this black Maison Margiela Haute Couture gown.

Dakota Johnson in Saint Laurent

Fifty Shades of Grey star, Dakota Johnson, wears Saint Laurent again at the Oscar's.The dress was quite simple but the jeweled part made it more interesting.

Emma Stone in Elie Saab Haute Couture

There is no such thing as an Academy Awards ceremony without at least one gown by lebanese designer Elie Saab.One of the stars that shined in his creations was Emma Stone in a beautiful green gown perfect for her red hair.She goes straight on the best dressed list.

Lupita Nyong'o in custom Calvin Klein Collection

One of my favorites is Lupita Nyong'o who had so many amazing moments on the red carpet, so you can imagine that i was anxious to see her dress for this event.As much as i appreciated her custom made pearl and ivory beaded gown by Calvin Klein Collection, i felt like something was missing and wasn't good enough.What do you think?

Rosamund Pike in custom Givenchy Haute Couture

Gone Girl actress, Rosamund Pike, wore ravishing and devilish custom dress by Givenchy Haute Couture.Riccardo Tisci made the right choice for Rosamund, because she is without a doubt on the best dressed list.

Jessica Chastain in custom Givenchy Haute Couture

If i applauded Riccardo Tisci for Rosamund Pike's red dress, i have some doubts regarding Jessica Chastain's custom Givenchy Haute Couture dress.The gown fits her perfectly and she is always so beautiful, but her look is just not that eye catching.Is it just me?

Meryl Streep in Lanvin

It's always nice to see so many dresses on the red carpet, but when someone like Meryl Streep wears a tuxedo jacket with a white blouse and a black skirt to the Oscar's in such an elegant and timeless way, you might want to see more looks like this.The famous actress wore a Lanvin ensemble and makes it on the best dressed list.

Patricia Arquette in Rosetta Getty

Another big winner of the night, Patricia Arquette, who won the award for Best Actress in a Suporting Role in Boyhood wore a black and white Rosetta Getty gown.Although the dress is beautiful, i feel like a pair of statement earrings would've madee this look better.

Keira Knightley in Valentino Haute Couture
Valentino Haute Couture Spring 2015

In a Valentino Haute Couture Spring 2015 gown, actress Keira Knightley was ready for spring on the red carpet with the floral and poetic gown.

Naomi Watts in Armani Prive

Another red carpet stunner was Naomi Watts wearing a black,white and grey Armani Prive long dress.She's on my best dressed list as well.

Sienna Miller in Oscar de la Renta
Oscar de la Renta Fall 2015

From the runway straight to the red carpet, this gorgeous black Oscar de la Renta gown from the 2015 Fall collection looked amazing on actress Sienna Miller.It's a big "yes" for her look and the best dressed list is filled with one more ravishing look.

Hannah Bagshawe and Eddie Redmayne in Alexander McQueen

The british "royal" couple wore Alexander McQueen, of course.While Eddie Redmayne caught everyone's attention by winning the Oscar for his superb interpretation of Stephen Hawkings in The Theory of Everything, his wife conquered the red carpet in that fabulous black McQueen gown with gold details.

Kerry Washington in Miu Miu

There is no doubt that Kerry Washington looked adorable in this champagne pink gown by Miu Miu, but  to be honest i expected something much better than that.

Zoe Saldana in Atelier Versace

To be honest, Zoe Saldana's Atelier Versace gown was nice, but her whole look was somehow boring and i really don;t understand the choice of that necklace.It seems like it's out of place and it's not fit for that gown.

Anna Kendrick in custom Thakoon

While i believe that Anna Kendrick's custom made Thakoon gown had such a lovely color and beautiful design, i'm not convinced that she should be on the best dressed list.

Jennifer Aniston in Atelier Versace
Atelier Versace Spring 2015

Although the Atelier Versace Spring 2015 dress was exactly the type of gown that you would expect Jennifer Aniston to wear, you have to admit that she looks fantastic in it.Predictable, but on the best dress list.

Louise Roe in Monique Lhuillier

Tv presenter Louise Roe wore a nice blue printed Monique Lhuillier gown, but i really think that the "wet" hair look wasn't appropriate for this sort of event.

Gwyneth Paltrow in Ralph&Russo

My favorite look at the Oscar's was definetly this Ralph&Russo Spring 2015 Couture light pink gown  worn by Gwyneth Paltrow.Once again, mis Paltrow managed to impress us with her read carpet appearance and of course that she is on the best dressed list, but on the right top of it!

Nicole Kidman in Louis Vuitton

Nicole Kidman either looks stunning on the red carpet, or she is just "meh".She wore a dress by Louis Vuitton, a very uninteresting and unflattering one.I don't think it's that hard to find her a beautiful dress especially when you know that she can pull it off easily because she is such a beauty and has that aristocratic air.Sorry, Nicole, but that's a big no-no.

Faith Hill in J.Mendel
J.Mendel Fall 2015

The fashion houses who had the luck to present their Fall collections before the Oscar event, also had the chance to send the gowns presented on the runway to celebrities so they would wear them on the red carpet.Faith Hill wore a dress from J.Mendel Fall 2015 line that was showcased last week.

Sophie Hunter, in Lanvin, and Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch's wife wore a beautiful red Lanvin gown with gold accessories.I love her simple, yet elegant look.

Chloë Grace Moretz in Miu Miu

A peach floral gown by Miu Miu was worn by actress Chloe Grace Moretz in which she looked dreamy and enchanting.


A light pink gown by Marchesa was the choice of model Karolina Kurkova for the Academy Awards.You think it looks simple? Better take a look below.

Karolina Kurkova in Marchesa

Yes, that's quite a dramatic back for a dress!She goes on my best dressed list not only for the beautiful appearance on the red carpet, but also for the fact that i think it was quite difficult for her to sit.

Lady Gaga in Alaïa

I am so happy to see one of Azzedine Alaia's designs on the red carpet, because i am a huge fan of everything that he does.Lady Gaga wears one of his beautiful white gowns, but the red gloves are questionable.This look would have been on the best dressed list, but the gloves really ruined everything.

Margot Robbie in Saint Laurent

Another Saint Laurent dress was worn by actress Margot Robbie accessorised with an exquisite Van Cleef&Arpels necklace.The best dressed list welcomes her.

Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji

Actress Octavia Spencer wore a pale blue dress by her favorite designer, Tadashi Shoji.I like the dress from the waist down, but i think the upper part is unflattering for her.

Jennifer Hudson in Romona Keveza
Romona Keveza Spring 2015

Jennifer Hudson brightened up the red carpet with that yellow Romona Keveza Spring 2015 dress and emerald earrings.

Oprah Winfrey in custom Vera Wang

Oprah Winfrey was very alluring in this custom made Vera Wang gown.I am very impressed about her look and i'm even going to put her on the best dressed list.

Chrissy Teigen in Zuhair Murad Haute Couture
Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Couture

John Legend's wife, Chrissy Teigen wore a Zuhair Murad gown from the 2015 Spring Couture collection.Best dressed list?Ok.

Behati Prinsloo in Armani Privé
Armani Prive Fall Haute Couture 2014

I was very surprised to see such an elegant and high class dress on Adam Levine's wife, model Behati Prinsloo.The gown was from Armani Prive Fall 2014 Haute Couture collection and it is one of my favorited.Yes, Behati, you're on the best dressed list.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Zuhair Murad Haute Couture
Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Haute Couture

Another gown from Zuhair Murad's Spring 2015 Haute Couture collection was on the Oscar's red carpet.Jenna Dewan-Tatum was the one to wear it and she looked lovely in it.Deserves to  be on the best dressed list.

Rita Ora in custom Marchesa

Rita Ora wore a custom made Marchesa gown that had a very dramatic effect with gold accents.I like her entire look, but not enough to consider her for the best dressed list.

America Ferrera in Jenny Packham
Jenny Packham Pre-Fall 2015

America Ferrera looked lovely in a Jenny Packham gown from the 2015 Pre-Fall collection.She's one of the best dressed to me.

Anna Farris in Zuhair Murad Haute Couture
Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Haute Couture

Yes, Zuhair Murad's deisgns were very popular at the Academy Awards and Anna Farris was one the ladies that wore one of his dresses.Usually, she doesn't make a very good on the red carpet, but this time she looked sensational in a gown from the Spring 2015 Haute Couture collection.Way to go,Anna!

Scarlett Johansson in Atelier Versace

I cannot express how much i like Scarlett Johansson's Atelier Versace emerald gown.After Gwyneth Palthrow, she's the second best dressed celebrity at the 2015 Academy Awards.The Swarovski crystal embroidered collar stole the show!

Rene Russo in J.Mendel

Rene Russo kept it simple with this white gown by J.Mendel and gold accessories.It seems like most celebrities chose to wear gold jewelry.

Jennifer Lopez in Elie Saab Haute Couture
Elie Saab Fall 2014 Haute Couture

Jennifer Lopez always manages to look like a real bombshell on the red carpet and she really knows how to capture all the attention.She wore an Elie Saab Fall 2014 Haute Couture gown in which she looked fabulous.Her cleavage seems to be a big problem lately, because she shows too much.Yes, it's such a beautiful look, but wait because there is a problem.

Luciana Duvall in Ermenegildo Zegna

And here it is.Luciana Duvall, Robert Duvall's wife, wore such a similar dress designed by Ermenegildo Zegna.Jennifer and Luciana looked like twins, the ones that their mommy dresses them in the same clothes and later they grow up and hate her for that!

Georgina Chapman in Marchesa

Geoergina Chapman, one of Marchesa's creative directors, was also present at the Academy Awards and of course that she wore one of her designs.She always looks very aristocratic and makes everything she wears more interesting.Best dressed list, that's all i have to say.

Solange Knowles in Christian Siriano
Christian Siriano Fall 2015

Usually, i love Solange Knwoles' style, but this 2015 Fall Christian Siriano ensemble isn't working for me.

Jessica Oyelowo in Marchesa and David Oyelowo
Marchesa Pre-Fall 2015

Jessica Oyelowo was another one of my favorites wearing a Marchesa gown from the Pre-Fall 2015 collection.
Carmen Ejogo in Houghton

And finally, actress Carmen Ejogo was lovely in a white Houghton gown with a Chopard chocker.I like her look, but it could've been better.
