Oscars 2013: Naomi Watts In Giorgio Armani

Oscars naomi watts armani Oscars 2013: Naomi Watts In Giorgio Armani %tagWho: Nominated actress Naomi Watts

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

Wearing: A custom Giorgio Armani gown fully enveloped in layered gunmetal grey sequins, teamed with Jimmy Choo heels and diamond jewellery

Verdict: It’s the gowns with something a little different that caught my eye on a mainly safe red carpet at last night’s Oscars, and this Giorgio Armani was a stand-out piece. Naomi Watts always has an elegance about her, she can pull off literally any look and this slinky gown looked incredible on her.

What I love, other than the gunmetal colour, which literally shimmered on camera, was the one-shoulder, off-center cut-out design along the bust-line. When she first stepped out on the red carpet I literally held my breathe as this gown took a risk that paid off and I loved it.

Finishing off her sequinned look was minimal styling, which seemed to be a big theme of the night, she just added diamond drop earrings, a diamond bracelet and a cocktail ring, and one of the best hairstyles of the night, a messy up-do. For me this is not only one of the best looks of the night but one of Naomi’s best ever looks!!!

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!!!

Oscars 2013: Jennifer Aniston In Valentino

Oscars jennifer aniston Oscars 2013: Jennifer Aniston In Valentino %tagWho: Jennifer Aniston

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

Wearing: A strapless red Valentino gown with a full skirt, teamed with a Salvatore Ferragamo double facet orange suede and gold metal minaudière and minimal Fred Leighton jewellery

Verdict: When I got the press release saying that Jennifer Aniston a lover of black was wearing red I was surprised and excited to see her gown. I can’t say I was completely blown away by this gown, it did remind me a little of Jennifer Lawrence’s Dior gown from the Golden Globes, but I have to give it to Jennifer for not opting for her go-to body-con dresses as it was nice to see her work a different look.

What I did adore was the minimal styling, her hair was natural, her jewellery was minimal and her make-up was completely flawless – one thing you can always guarantee with Jennifer is that she brings the glamour and beauty to an event.

Oscars 2013: Anne Hathaway In Prada

Oscars anne hathaway tiffanys Oscars 2013: Anne Hathaway In Prada %tag

Who: Best Supporting Actress winner Anne Hathaway

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

Wearing: A custom pale pink satin column Prada gown, featuring a high neckline, an open back, and a slit to the back of the skirt, teamed with a Roger Vivier ‘Pilgrim’ clutch in blush satin with crystal buckle, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and a Tiffany & Co diamond necklace from the 2013 Blue Book Collection, Lucida earrings and diamond bracelets

Verdict: With Anne Hathaway an odds-on favourite to pick up the Best Supporting Actress gong, which she did win last night, I was expecting something dramatic, a statement, something that would wow me.

Unfortunately this Prada gown left me underwhelmed, it isn’t that it is an awful dress it isn’t, it is pretty, a little too much like Gwyneth Paltrow’s pink Ralph Lauren from her Oscar win, but it just didn’t have the wow factor of an Oscar winner – it was a little too safe.

The back was a little more interesting, just, but I think her floral Tiffany & Co necklace seemed to conflict with her criss-cross straps of the open back of the dress, I like the idea of the back necklace but it just didn’t work for me as much as it did for Jennifer Lawrence.

There was talk that Anne was going to wear a Valentino Haute Couture gown, even the fashion house thought so, but she dismissed claims saying that she chose the Prada three hours before the show – but it has left me wondering what the Valentino would have looked like!!!

Oscars 2013: Sandra Bullock In Elie Saab Couture

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

Wearing: A black beaded Elie Saab Couture gown featuring lace panels from the spring/summer 2013 haute couture collection, teamed with $1 million worth of diamonds from Harry Winston including diamond earstuds, a diamond cluster brooch and three diamond rings, and a Swarovski clutch

Verdict: As you know I love Elie Saab and I was so pleased to see Sandra Bullock in this gorgeous black beaded and lace beauty. There is an elegance about this cap sleeve design, as well as sexiness with the lace panels that was perfect for not just the Oscars but also The Blind Side actress who looked incredible.

As the dress was so exquisite in its detail I love that Sandra didn’t over-do it with her hair, make-up and accessories, and I completely adore the Harry Winston diamond brooch that was styled in her hair – simply divine.Oscars sandra bullock HW Oscars 2013: Sandra Bullock In Elie Saab Couture %tag[Pics: via Elie Saab/Harry Winston]

Oscars 2013: Reese Witherspoon In Louis Vuitton

Oscars reece witherspoon LV Oscars 2013: Reese Witherspoon In Louis Vuitton %tagWho: Reese Witherspoon

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

Wearing: A custom Louis Vuitton Klein blue silk faille strapless corset gown, featuring a contrasting black bow trim to the bustier and a train, teamed with Louis Vuitton fine jewellery and Christian Louboutin heels

Verdict: This was one of my favourite gown’s of the night and it was all because of the bold colour, it stood out against her blonde side-swept wavy locks and with a red carpet filled with nude tones I loved that she went with colour.

I know that I state Old Hollywood glamour maybe too much, but Reese was definitely oozing sophistication and sex appeal in this gorgeous yet simple gown, and I love that she didn’t over-do her make-up and jewellery – minimal and subtle worked perfectly.
