Where: At the 86th Academy Awards held in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A strapless navy blue custom Gucci Première silk crepe tuxedo-inspired gown featuring a fitted bodice and a subtle train, teamed with Tiffany & Co jewellery

Verdict: Granted, not my best of Amy Adams looks this award season, but there is no denying how stunning this custom gown is. Even though this dress didn’t wow me like some other looks tonight, I still loved how statuesque Amy looked in it and I think that was down to the incredible fit of the gown as well as that tuxedo-inspired bodice.

What did make this look for me had to be those striking Tiffany & Co earrings with rhodochrosites, lapis lazuli and turquoise from the 2014 Tiffany Blue Book collection. It was a one of the biggest trends wearing statement jewellery and these dramatic drop earrings were the perfect addition to this structured dress an sweeping up-do.

SAG Awards: Trend – Various Shades Of Blue

463563745 SAG Awards: Trend   Various Shades Of Blue %tag

There is always something special about the Screen Actors Guild Awards, maybe it is the fact that they are all judging one another, or that the red carpet has a relaxed nature while still being uber glamorous, or that it comes so soon after the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards that I am so giddy about the award season. Whatever it is, it never seems to disappoint.

Last year it was all about Nina Dobrev’s gorgeous Elie Saab and Jennifer Garner sparkling in Oscar de la Renta, and this year it seems that all my best dressed wore hues of blue. From the gorgeous Amy Adams in Antonio Berardi to Jennifer Lawrence’s shimmering Dior Couture gown.

I was just going to do my best three looks but I have to be honest I couldn’t decide who to cut – so it is now my top 4 beauties from the SAG Awards red carpet!!!

In at number one has to be American Hustle’s Amy Adams in this Antonio Berardi gown, not only is this shade of blue divine, but the architectural neckline and shoulder cut-out detail really marries sexy and elegance all at the same time, and the fit is impeccable on her. Amy really is having a great award season.

My second best is newcomer Lupita Nyong’o, this girl continues to impress me every time she steps out onto the red carpet and this custom Gucci gown is beautiful. It isn’t often that you see turquoise on the red carpet, but this hue really shined on her, and it was made even better with those gorgeous floral embroidered straps. Another breathtaking look – I think Lupita is easily my favourite red carpet star of the moment.

Third place was a tough decision between the two Jennifer’s – from the statuesque Jennifer Garner in a custom Max Mara gown and Jennifer Lawrence in a shimmering Dior Couture number. Both are beautiful, both so different. I think the constellation of multicoloured sequins on J-Law’s gown just pips Garner as it really did shimmer on TV, but I do love the simplicity of Garner’s – that is a great silhouette on her.

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Amy Adams Wears Barbie Pink

amy adams roland mouret Critics Choice Movie Awards: Amy Adams Wears Barbie Pink %tag

Who: Amy Adams

Where: At the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica

Wearing: A vibrant pink Roland Mouret ‘Tinea’ gown, featuring a draped neckline, from the pre-autumn/winter 2014 collection, teamed with a black grosgrain ribbon nipping in her waist and Neil Lane jewellery

Verdict: It is so nice to see such a vibrant colour on the red carpet, as well as Roland Mouret who just designs the most stunning of gowns and this one is exquisite. Called the ‘Tinea’, I love how sexy this dress is without being revealing, it has a touch of Old Hollywood about it with the draped neckline and streamlined silhouette, and I just adore how it falls of her shoulders.

I thought Amy looked stunning in Valentino Couture at the Golden Globes, I actually preferred the look complete with the cape, however this look for me is just utterly breathtaking and divine.

It it wasn’t for Lupita Nyong’o, Amy would have been my best dressed – I can’t wait to see what she does for the rest of the award season.

W Magazine: Jennifer vs Oprah vs Cate

W jennifer lawrence W Magazine: Jennifer vs Oprah vs Cate %tag

Reason number 387 on why I love Jennifer Lawrence – she isn’t afraid to rock her curves on a cover of a magazine. The Oscar-winning actress, and potential contender this year for the best supporting actress gong, looks incredible wearing a 50′s style floral high-waisted Dolce & Gabbana bikini on one of the six special covers for W magazine’s Movie issue.

It isn’t often that you get to compare Jennifer against Oprah Winfrey, Cate Blanchett, who is one of my favourite red carpet stars, as well as Matthew McConaughey, Amy Adams, and Lupita Nyong’o – all chosen for their incredible movie performances over the last year snapped by photography legend Juergen Teller. 

Inside the magazine, Jennifer opens up about her big trip-up at last year’s Oscars (reason 254 for loving her):

“I was at the Oscars, waiting to hear
 if my name was called, and I kept thinking, Cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk. I thought, Why is ‘cakewalk’ stuck in my head? And then, as I started to walk up the stairs and the fabric from my dress tucked under my feet, I realized my stylist had told me, ‘Kick, walk, kick, walk.’ You are supposed to kick the dress out while you walk, and I totally forgot because I was thinking about cake! And that’s why I fell.”

As well as loving Jennifer’s cover – Cate is stunning, I love her red lippy, I have to say that Lupita in that metallic Dior dress has to be my favourite. I just love that W magazine went with an up-and-coming actress who is really standing her own against the more established names. I think Lupita will be the one to watch this award season, not only will she pick up a lot of awards but her red carpet style is going to be amazing.

Which W magazine cover are you loving? Also are you still loving Jennifer Lawrence as much as me?

Oscars 2013: Amy Adams In Oscar de la Renta

Oscars amy adams Oscars 2013: Amy Adams In Oscar de la Renta %tagWho: Nominee Amy Adams

Where: At the 85th Annual Academy awards held in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless pale blue Oscar de la Renta gown with full ruffled skirt, teamed with a diamond bracelet and drop earrings

Verdict: I do love a Princess moment, as you know, and this is Amy Adams. It is a gorgeous Oscar de la Renta gown, I love the never-ending ruffle tiers, I adore the sweetheart neckline, I love the drama of the huge train, I just wish that Amy wasn’t so afraid of colour.

The icy blue is nice, it works against her skintone and her auburn hair, I just would have like to have seen her embrace a little more colour. I am just being picky – as a bright shade would have made this one of my best dressed looks of the night.

But come if you can’t go for an over the top gown like this at the Oscars when can you!!!

BAFTA Awards: Amy Adams Wearing Elie Saab

bafta amy adams eliesaab BAFTA Awards: Amy Adams Wearing Elie Saab %tagWho: Amy Adams

Where: At the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards held at the Royal Opera House in London

Wearing: A black lace Elie Saab gown from the Haute Couture autumn/winter 2013 collection, featuring Chantilly lace and embroidery to the bodice, back and sleeves, and a thigh-high split to the front, teamed with gold Casadei heels and Fabergé earrings

Verdict: This gorgeous evening gown was pure glamour and stood out on last night’s BAFTA red carpet as one of the most exquisite black dresses and bless Amy she must have been freezing with all that lace on show.

When I first saw this gown on Amy I have to be honest I thought it was a little too sexy for her, she is normally elegant and glamorous, where as this is sex-bomb territory, but you know she pull it off perfectly and I think added the gold platform heels was a great touch.

I also have to give her one of the best hair-dos of the night as well, I love her top knot, a great hairstyle for the snowy conditions, and it allowed her to show off those statement ruby and diamond earrings.

This sexy look was unexpected from Amy – but I love it – do you think she pulls it off?

LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala: Amy Adams vs Cameron Diaz In Gucci Yellow

Gucci amy vs cameron LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala: Amy Adams vs Cameron Diaz In Gucci Yellow %tag

On Saturday, a host of celebrities hit the red carpet to attend the LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala host by Gucci honouring Ed Ruscha and Stanley Kubrick – I have already gushed about Rosie, but two other ladies that also impressed me were Amy Adams and Cameron Diaz both wearing yellow.

Both went for spring/summer 2013 collection looks, Cameron opted for a short number showing off her fab legs, whereas Amy went for an elegant floor-skimming gown with a bejewelled waistband. Both look amazing, both really pull off this tricky yellow colour, not quite sunshine yellow, not quite mustard it is somewhere in-between  and in some photographs it even looked a little neon, but I love the contrast of the short and long it made both looks stand out for me.

Amy’s look is more traditional for a gala even, it is floor-length, has added sparkle with the waistband and her clutch and I love the strapless silhouette - but there is something about Cameron’s bell-sleeve belted mini that is just so fun and I absolutely love the crystal-embellished floral neckline.

Which girl in yellow gets your vote – Amy or Cameron? Even with Cameron’s legs looking amazing in this dress I am going to have to say that Amy’s long gown just pips her.
