Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Diane Kruger In Valentino & Jaeger-LeCoultre

VF-Party-Diane-KrugerWho: Diane Kruger

Where: At the Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014 in West Hollywood, California

Wearing: A sheer lace Valentino Couture gown featuring cape detailing and three-quarter sleeves from the spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with black heels, a black beaded clutch and her Jaeger-LeCoultre watch

Verdict: It is Diane Kruger’s ability to bring something different to the red carpet that I missed her from the main event. The actress is like a chameleon she never really goes for the same thing twice and really takes fashion risks that nearly always come off.

This gorgeous Valentino Couture was a look that wowed me and really shows that the Vanity Fair party does bring out the best fashion on the night, the stars can be a little more edgy and sexy and this dress has that and more going for it.

There aren’t many actresses that could pull off this vampy elegant look, I think this is where her model body really works well as she can take something from the runway to the red carpet with ease. I know some people won’t like this look, which makes me go why the hell not, because I absolutely love the decadence and texture of the gown and styling.

As well as wearing a fab dress, the actress went for an intricate braided look done by hairstylist Kylee Heath using Morroccanoil products, which was easily one of the best hairdo’s of the night. It is sweet, charming, while still complimenting the edgy, sexy sheer dress.

I know I am bias, I am a little obsessed with Diane Kruger, but this is one flawless look.

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Lupita Nyong’o Changes Into Miu Miu

VF-Miumiu-LupitaWho: Lupita Nyong’o

Where: At the Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014 in West Hollywood, California

Wearing: A seafoam green Miu Miu belted silk gown with green beaded fringe along the neckline, teamed with matching peep-toe heels and the same Fred Leighton headband from the main event, oh and carrying her Oscar statue

Verdict: I loved the pale blue Prada gown and it was perfect for Lupita to float up the stairs to collect her Best Supporting Actress Oscar, but this cute column gown was the fun party frock that the Vanity Fair party needs and kind of reminds me of the change Jennifer Lawrence made last year in its silhouette.

I love the green beading on the bodice, it really does make this dress shine, and I love that she kept that cute Fred Leighton headband on – it was such a hit on the Oscars red carpet.

Which look do you prefer – her blue Prada gown or this Miu Miu beauty?

Oscars 2014: Best Dressed – Lupita Nyong’o In Prada

Oscars-Lupita-Prada

Who: Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong’o

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

Wearing: A custom cornflower blue silk georgette pleated Prada gown featuring a deep V-neck top to the front and back, teamed with gold and diamond jewellery from Fred Leighton including a headband, earrings and bracelet

Verdict: Lupita really has been a breath of fresh air this award season, each red carpet I have been excited to see what she wears as she mixes up her designers, silhouettes and isn’t afraid to wear colour.

This for me was easily one of my best dressed looks – not only was the colour perfection, which she said reminded her of Nairobi her home, but I loved how the crystal embellishments on the skirt sparkled when it hit the light, especially when she went up to collection her well deserved award for her role in 12 Years A Slave.

It was also youthful, fun, and modern, as well as being fashion-forward and appropriate for the Oscars red carpet – Miucca really did well.

As well as loving the gown I also adored how the actress styled up the look with her gold jewellery including a delicate diamond headband and gorgeous ear cuff.

I love everything about this look from head-to-toe and I am so pleased that she won her speech was moving and emotional I loved that she ended it with “no matter where you’re from your dreams are valid”.

Oscars 2014: Best Dressed – Cate Blanchett In Armani Prive

Oscars-armani-cate-blanchet

Who: Best Actress winner Cate Blanchett

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

Wearing: A nude gold Armani Prive gown with a tulle skirt, and embroidered with dégradé sequins and Swarovski crystals from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with Chopard opal and diamond earrings

Verdict: Wow, the Blue Jasmine star looked incredible in this textured beauty of a gown by Armani Prive. The designer wasn’t much of a surprise, but I was surprised by the romantic, floated nature of the gown, I was thinking that she would go for something a little more structured and avant garde. I am definitely not complaining, this Princess dress looked amazing on her, and really photographed all the embroidery really well.

The only thing that made this look not shine as bright as Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace or Lupita Nyong’o in Prada was the nude, champagne hue of the gown, which seemed to be all the stars go-to colour. Stars including Idina Menzel in Reem Acra, her Blue Jasmine co-star Sally Hawkins in Valentino and Portia de Rossi in a Naeem Khan, as well as Jessica Biel in Chanel Couture and Kristin Bell in a Roberto Cavalli all wore the shade. It kind of made Cate’s not as special looking back across all the red carpet images.

Saying that I still love this gown, the mixture of the textures with the romantic floaty silhouette really is gorgeous.

I also love. love, love those statement opal and diamond Chopard earrings – it really made her Hollywood glamour look.
