Oscars 2013: Kerry Washington In Miu Miu

Oscars-kerry-washingtonWho: Kerry Washington

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

Wearing: A coral Miu Miu gown with a nude tulle bustier embellished with paillettes and crystals, accessorised with a Prada clutch, a Fred Leighton ring, Chopard earrings, and Christian Louboutin heels

Verdict: This custom-made Miu Miu gown literally sparkled on the red carpet and stood out as until Kerry Washington had arrived everyone was in a nude, pale colour and this coral number really did cheer me up.

This dress is cute, I love the bow detailing, I love the sparkles of the embellished bodice, and I love the sweet colour – I also love the colour-matching accessories of the clutch and heels.

The only thing I am missing are her bangs that she had yesterday at the Spirit Awards.

SAG Awards: Nicole Kidman In Vivienne Westwood

nicole-kidman-sag-awardsWho: Nicole Kidman

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A midnight blue Vivienne Westwood Couture ‘Marlene’ column gown covered in floral appliqués, a sheer neckline and a thigh-high split, teamed with Fred Leighton jewellery and black strappy heels

Verdict: Wow, Nicole Kidman keeps on surprising me with her red carpet looks, at the Golden Globes I loved her Alexander McQueen and I think I prefer this midnight blue Vivienne Westwood just because of how sexy it is.

I love the exquisite beaded embroidery, the sheer panelling, and then the thigh-high split – Nicole really knows how to wear a column dress and this is the best I have seen her in a while.

However, as much as I love her gown, jewels, and choice of heels, I would have loved her to have done more with her hair, I like it sleek straight but I don’t love it I wish she had put it up and showed off the neckline of this dress more.

What do you think of Nicole’s look?

SAG Awards: Kerry Washington In Rodarte

Kerry Washington, Rodarte, SAG AwardsWho: Kerry Washington

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless white silk tulle Rodarte gown featuring an embellished bodice with Swarovski Elements and silver lace around the hemline and back, teamed with a silver Judith Leiber clutch, white Christian Louboutin heels, and jewellery from Fred Leighton

Verdict: Kerry Washington is fast becoming on of my favourite red carpet stars as I just don’t know what she is going to wear, and like Diane Kruger she seems to have an ability to wear near enough anything and look incredible.

This Rodarte gown was not only stunning on her but a little unexpected, which is probably why it was one of my favourite looks from the SAG Awards red carpet. Normally white gowns don’t work for me on the red carpet, but this dress has an edgy quality with the structured embellished bodice, which is complemented nicely with the soft lace-trimmed skirt.

Finishing off her gorgeous look were stunning diamond jewels from Fred Leighton, I love her ’50s platinum drop earrings and that metallic Judith Leiber box clutch is perfection. Then add in her flawless make-up and up-do and this for me is a perfect red carpet look.

Golden Globes 2013: Nicole Kidman In Alexander McQueen

Who: Nicole Kidman

Where: At the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A black crepe Alexander McQueen gown with gold bee embroidery to the neckline and lace panels to the waist from the spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with Fred Leighton jewellery, and Manolo Blahnik heels

Verdict: This is a gorgeous gown, which at first I thought was a little to edgy for Nicole Kidman, and then I remembered how incredible she used to be on the red carpet and I was excited to see her working her amazing figure.

The mesh panel to the middle of the dress makes Nicole taller and slimmer, as if she needed any help, and teamed with the metal embellishments it has a regal vibe to it that actually suits her.

What do you think – is the McQueen gown to edgy for her?
