Oscars 2014: Best Dressed – Jennifer Lawrence In Dior

Oscars dior Jennifer lawrence Oscars 2014: Best Dressed   Jennifer Lawrence In Dior %tag

Who: Jennifer Lawrence

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

Wearing: A strapless red wool crepe Dior Haute Couture dress, teamed with Neil Lane jewellery, black Brian Atwood shoes, and a Ferragamo clutch

Verdict: Jennifer Lawrence and her blonde pixie cut really is growing on me especially paired with this gorgeous red couture gown. No surprise that the actress wore Dior but I can’t have been the only one hoping for a miracle – no matter how gorgeous this statuesque dress is.

What I love most about this look, other than the peplum detailing, has to be the sparkling Neil Lane diamonds that she is wearing, which were reportedly worth $3 million. The necklace alone was a staggering $2 million due to its 100 carats of diamonds. What are your thoughts on the repeated necklace down the back? She did this last year to great effect but this year I’m not too sure.

One thing is for sure her hair and make-up was flawless and she was once again on great form on the red carpet and during the ceremony. Oh and if you missed her clumsy red carpet moment – see below – this is just another reason I want her to be my BFF. Plus all the haters out there saying she did it for attention – really – come off it.

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.

Oscars 2013: Zoe Saldana In Alexis Mabille Couture

Oscars zoe saldana Oscars 2013: Zoe Saldana In Alexis Mabille Couture %tag

Who: Zoe Saldana

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

Wearing: An off-white strapless Alexis Mabille Couture belted gown featuring an embellished floral appliqué bustier and a layered grey and black train from the spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with black velvet Roger Vivier Smoking sandals and Neil Lane jewellery

Verdict: Wow, wow, wow. What a gown!!! Sometimes you expect greatness and wow moments from nominee actresses but I suppose there is less pressure on guests and presenters and Zoe Saldana blew me away with her interesting couture gown designed by French designer Alexis Mabille.

Zoe has this ability, similar to Diane Kruger to work something very fashion-forward and make it look effortless and she really shined last night on the red carpet.

What makes this look for me has to be the incredible detailing with the floral appliqués around the neckline, in pictures it looks divine, on TV it looked sensational.

Oscars 2013: Jennifer Garner Stunning In Gucci

Oscars jennifer garner  Oscars 2013: Jennifer Garner Stunning In Gucci %tagWho: 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!!!

SAG Awards: Nina Dobrev In Elie Saab

nina dobrev elie saab SAG Awards: Nina Dobrev In Elie Saab %tagWho: Nina Dobrev 

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

Wearing: A sleek Barbie pink Elie Saab gown featuring subtle sheer-lace cut-outs from the ready-to-wear spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with a thin belt, Neil Lane jewels, a bejewelled Judith Lieber box clutch, and Jimmy Choo heels

Verdict: I love it when young actresses shine on the red carpet, I love it even more when they wear bright colours, and I am super pleased when it is Elie Saab!!! Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev was my best dressed last night at the SAG Awards as she looked absolutely incredible in this simple-yet-chic Elie Saab gown.

I was trying to pin down why I loved it so much, of course the Barbie pink shade was always going to get my vote, but even though I love a Princess dress I really love that this has a sporty vibe with the t-shirt sleeves, and I just couldn’t shake how much it kind of reminded me of the simple Calvin Klein dress that Jennifer Lawrence wore to the Oscars in 2011.

But what this look has is the touch of sexy glamour with the sheer lace cut-outs and the sparkly box clutch and those gorgeous Neil Lane drop earrings. This minimalistic gown teamed with sparkling accessories was the perfect combination to add to Nina’s natural beauty and incredible body – this look is when the dress + styling + star work perfectly together and I love it.

Do you love this look as much as I do?

Primetime Emmy Awards: Sofia Vergara In Zuhair Murad

SofiaVergara Primetime Emmy Awards: Sofia Vergara In Zuhair Murad %tagWho: Sofia Vergara 

Where: At the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A teal-green sequinned Zuhair Murad gown featuring a halter neckline to the front, an open back, with a mermaid silhouette from the Resort 2012 collection, teamed with Neil Lane jewellery

Verdict: Sofia is known for her body-hugging gowns and even though this look is a little predictable from her, I also love that she knows what works for her body.

This is one sexy gown, I love the open back, the jewel tone looks stunning against her skin tone and tumbling locks, and Sofia is always the one to bring the bling to the red carpet and Neil Lane decked her out beautifully.

What do you think? Do you love this sexy gown on Sofia?

Friends With Kids: Megan Fox Refined In Elie Saab

MeganFoxElieSaab Friends With Kids: Megan Fox Refined In Elie Saab %tag

Who: Megan Fox

Where: At the Cinema Society & People StyleWatch’s screening of ‘Friends With Kids’

Wearing: A nude-coloured embroidered Elie Saab Haute Couture dress from the spring 2012 collection, with a delicate, bow belt and full skirt, teamed with nude YSL heels and Neil Lane jewels

Verdict: Wow, wow, wow!!! Refined elegance really does suit Megan Fox, I love this sparkly Elie Saab gown on her, not only is it super flattering, the colour works perfectly with her gorgeous wavy dark brown hair – old Hollywood glamour at its very best. Don’t get me wrong I love it when Megan gives Angelina Jolie a run for her money with sultry, thigh-high splits, but this is a great girlie look on her and I love it.

Elie Saab is the master of elegance, glamour and sparkles and this prom dress is perfection that I wouldn’t have thought Megan would have gone for but I am glad that she did. The one thing I would change though has to be the chunky heels, nude works fine but I would have gone for strappy rather than platform pumps or maybe a peep-toe – these YSL are just a little heavy for this elegant look.

As well as a refined dress, it seems Megan took it down a notch on her make-up, which I was pleased to see – I loved her smoky eye paired with a nude lips – this look really did show of her immense beauty.

What do you think – do you like this look on Megan?
