Oscars 2014: Jennifer Garner In Oscar de la Renta

Oscars-odlr-jennifer-garnerWho: Jennifer Garner

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

Wearing: A silver tulle tiered fringe Oscar de la Renta gown with micro bugle and bead embroidery, teamed with a OdlR silver crown Goa clutch, diamond bracelets and delicate drop earrings from Forevermark

Verdict: When I saw this dress on the red carpet I wasn’t blown away, normally I really love flapper-inspired gowns, but this dress didn’t seem showy enough for the Oscars or for one of my favourite actress who always has an elegance about her.

Don’t get me wrong this beaded gown is nice, exquisitely made, and even though it did shimmer better on the Oscar stage than on the red carpet – this dress just wasn’t enough. Maybe I being very picky, or maybe because there were a handful of other looks that I loved more, for once Jennifer Garner just didn’t make my best dressed list.

But can I say that her side-swept hair and loose waves and flawless make-up was one of the best of the night – simply gorgeous. Plus I loved her bright red nails.

SAG Awards: Trend – Various Shades Of Blue

463563745

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.

Were you a fan of the various shades of blue on the SAG Awards red carpet?

Save the Children Gala: Jennifer Garner In Calvin Klein

Calvin-klein-jennifer-garner

Who: Jennifer Garner

Where: At the first-ever Save the Children benefit Gala held at Cipriani in New York

Wearing: A knee-length black dress by Calvin Klein with pockets and spaghetti straps, teamed with black heels, a black clutch and diamond earrings and bracelet

Verdict: This look is so effortless for Jennifer. The dress is chic, the accessories are perfect, and she is wearing just the right amount of sparkles – I love this look.

There isn’t anything special about this look, there is no pop of colour, she hasn’t even done anything amazing with her hair, but you know it just works – she really does look elegant and natural and I adore her make-up.

The event hosted by Jenna Bush Hager, honoured not only the Alias actress with the Advocate Award for her support for Save the Children but also former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who looked amazing in bubblegum-pink number.

Oscars 2013: Jennifer Garner Stunning In Gucci

Oscars-jennifer-garner-Who: Jennifer Garner

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

Wearing: A custom strapless plum Gucci gown, featuring cascading ruffles down her back leading into a train, teamed with $2.5 million worth of Neil Jane jewellery, which included a statement necklace, delicate earrings and a bracelet, and a gunmetal Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit clutch

Verdict: Jennifer Garner really has had a great award season supporting her hubbie Ben Affleck and this is one of my favourite looks and it is all down to the amazing plum colour, which looks incredible against her pale skintone.

This look has everything the Oscars deserves, dramatic ruffles down her back, a sophisticated train, a striking colour – oh and then she takes it to the next level with the glamour that incredible Neil Lane diamond necklace oozes.

I just can’t help but adore this look!!!
