Oscars 2013: Jessica Chastain In Giorgio Armani

Oscars-jessica-chastain-Who: Jessica Chastain

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

Wearing: A strapless copper-tone custom Giorgio Armani silk satin gown covered in sequins, teamed with vintage Harry Winston diamond earrings and gold bracelet from the 1960s

Verdict: This is Old Hollywood movie star wow that the Oscars is all about. I love everything from the sweetheart neckline to the colour, which shouldn’t but does work against her red locks and pale skin, to the incredible exquisite sequin detailing and the gorgeous silhouette.

One of the first to hit the red carpet, Jessica really did make an impression with this gown that made everyone up their game!!!

As well as loving her gown, her jewellery was also perfection, in her interview on the red carpet she said that the bracelet was from the 1960s and it really did accessory the gown well. I also thought her side swept curls and her bold lippy just oozed glamour – great job Jessica!!!

AACTA Awards: Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé

Armani Privé, Cate Blanchett

Who: Cate Blanchett

Where: At the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards held at the Star Event Centre in Sydney, Australia

Wearing: A red tapering double-breasted Giorgio Armani Privé gown featuring flared sleeves, embroidered  all over with tiny red square lacquer sequins and a black trim from the spring/summer 2009 collection, teamed with black shoes and black drop earrings

Verdict: I have missed Cate Blanchett from the award season red carpet so it was nice to see her at Australia’s answer to the BAFTAS wearing this gorgeous Asian-inspired gown.

This gown is full on drama with the bold shoulders and flared hemline, full on glamour with the red shimming sequins, and full of sexy with the plunging neckline – Cate looks incredible.

We haven’t had a great Armani Privé gown this award season so it was nice to see this beauty and it gives me hope that this look will make stylists call in other pieces for the Oscars. Do you remember when Anne Hathaway wore that gorgeous gold number? I want to see more of that!!!

Do you rate Cate’s red gown?

Cover Loving: Kristen Stewart For Vanity Fair

Finally a Kristen Stewart cover that I can love. This is her first solo cover for Vanity Fair and it is a blinder, I am loving the uber-glam Kristen in that gorgeous Giorgio Armani Privé gown, she looks incredible and for the first time she actually looks relaxed. I have to ask was the Pomeranian dog really needed?

Shot by Mario Testino in Paris there is a gorgeous high fashion editorial accompanying this stunning cover, from Kristen wearing haute couture to the ballet, posing with the striking dancer Jérémie Bélingard **check out his incredible eyes, dreamy** in a Jean Gaultier corset, and of course the jewellery is well represented with gorgeous Fabergé diamonds and emeralds.

Maybe it is the Paris backdrop, of the incredible couture designs, but come on have you ever seen Kristen look so good in a magazine before?

84th Oscars: Penelope Cruz in Giorgio Armani

Who: Penelope Cruz

Where: At the 84th Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: An off-the-shoulder blue-grey Giorgio Armani organza gown, with fitted bodice, fabric that cascades into gathered pleats, teamed with Chopard jewel necklace, earrings and bracelet

Verdict: This is a classic gown, perfect for the Oscars, and the ethereal look is fabulous on her. The colour is a little different for her, and I adore her Grace Kelly make-up, hair and jewellery. Overall, this is a gorgeous look from Penelope and took me a little by surprise, which is always nice, I was expecting a full on sex-kitten look from her in a sparkly form-fitted gown. I like Penelope all demure, she has an old-Hollywood feel about her.
