Oscars 2015: Rosamund Pike In Givenchy

Who: Rosamund Pike

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A custom, strapless crimson red Givenchy Haute Couture gown, teamed with Lorraine Schwartz earrings

Verdict: Finally an award season look from Rosamund Pike that I can get excited about, this red Givenchy Couture gown with its exquisite embroidery and sexy silhouette is the best she has looked. 

This gown is sexy, she was really working that thigh-high split, and I loved the cinched in waist from the built-in corset, it really gave her a great hourglass figure.

What I loved most is that this wasn’t boring, it fit her and it was vibrant. We had to wait all award season for her to show us her Hollywood style power and it was worth it.

Oscars 2015: Jennifer Lopez In Elie Saab

Who: Jennifer Lopez

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A blush tulle belted Elie Saab ballgown, embroidered with pearls, stones and sequins, with a plunging neckline, teamed with $2.5 millions worth of Neil Lane diamond and platinum jewellery 

Verdict: I have a serious girl crush on Jennifer Lopez and it is for moments like this, she really knows how to work the red carpet, make a statement, while still being true to herself, and I love that on this occasion she surprised me with this princess moment in this gorgeous Elie Saab gown but still brought the sexy that we expect from her.

I think for some there might be a little too much boob on show, but come have you seen them, pretty perfect if you ask me, and if you have them why not flaunt them!!!

As well as loving the dramatic gown, which looked even more beautiful when she took to the stage to present, I also adore her make-up and that high ponytail. 

Simply stunning.

Oscars 2015: Lupita Nyong’o In Calvin Klein Collection

lupita-calvin-klein

Who: Lupita Nyong’o 

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A custom Calvin Klein Collection halter gown embellished in pearls and ivory beads by womenswear creative director Francisco Costa

Verdict: I thought it was going to be hard for her to top that gorgeous Prada gown from last year’s Oscars, but wow this is gorgeous. The pearl-embellished bodice is just so beautiful, and apparently the gown carries approx 6,000 beads, in five different variations of sizes, you really have to appreciate the exquisite detailing her. 

For me, what makes this so special is that it is so different, I love the unique keyhole detailing, the column fit of the gown, as well as the colour on her.

I think this is a look that will be remembered for years to come.

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Diane Kruger In Giambattista Valli

diane-kruger-VF2013Who: Diane Kruger

Where: At the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscars party, held at the Sunset Tower in Hollywood

Wearing: A black and white embroidered Giambattista Valli cape dress from the spring/summer 2013 haute couture collection, teamed with Christian Louboutin heels, a Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit gold and black metal clutch, and Fabergé jewellery

Verdict: I have missed Diane Kruger this award season as she always brings something new and different to the red carpet, and this is another incredible fashion-forward choice from one of her favourite couture designers, Giambattista Valli.

I don’t think many people could pull off this long-sleeved caped design but Diane seems to do it with ease, which is probably why I love it so much.

As well as loving the print, bold like Nina Dobrev’s, I love that it isn’t floor length like nearly everyone else, it makes her and this couture design stand out.

I think this another great look from Diane – do you agree?

Elton John Oscar Party: Nina Dobrev In Naeem Khan

Nina-dobrev

Who: Nina Dobrev

Where: At 21st Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party held in Hollywood

Wearing: A black and white printed Naeem Khan gown from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with Chopard jewellery, a Swarovski envelope clutch and Barbara Bui shoes

Verdict: I love how Nina Dobrev and her stylist Ilaria Urbinati keep on getting it so spot on, this gorgeous bold printed Naeem Khan gown is incredible and was one of my favourite looks of the whole Oscar weekend.

This look is giving me everything I want to see in a red carpet appearance – it has drama in that bold monochrome print, which is exquisite, it has an elegance about it with the high neck, a sexiness with the plunging open back, a delicateness with those diamond drop earrings from Chopard, and a youthful feel with her cute high ponytail.

I just can’t help gush – this look is just simply sensational – I love it!!!

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Jennifer Lawrence In Calvin Klein Collection

jennifer-lawrence-VF2013Who: Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence

Where: At the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscars party, held at the Sunset Tower in Hollywood

Wearing: A custom Calvin Klein Collection gunmetal beaded gown, Brian Atwood heels and Shay jewellery including earrings, bracelets and a cocktail ring

Verdict: The Silver Linings Playbook star changed out of her Dior Couture gown into this slinky silver Calvin Klein and it looked sensational on her and was a great look to show off her golden statuette.

The first time the world took notice of Jennifer Lawrence on the red carpet was at the Oscars in a Calvin Klein a few years back so it was fitting for her to turn to the designer for her after-show look and I am so glad that she did as I love the liquid metallic look of the gown.

As well as loving the sexy vibe of the dress with the plunging neckline and metallic shine, I love how it is such a contrast from the girlie Dior that she wore to the main event.

I am so pleased that Jennifer won last night – I really am pleased that Hollywood has fallen in love with her quirky humour and clumsy nature – she was so in shock when she won that it was adorable.

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Olivia Munn Dazzles In Atelier Versace

olivia-munn-VF2013Who: Actress Olivia Munn

Where: At the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscars party, held at the Sunset Tower in Hollywood

Wearing: A fully beaded pale pink Atelier Versace gown with intricate straps at the neckline and draping at the sides and back and a thigh-high split from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with silver Versace heels, and Kimberly McDonald jewellery

Verdict: What a gown, what intricate embroidery, and what a way to wear a thigh-high split without doing an Angelina Jolie!!!

Olivia Munn has an incredible beauty about her, but normally you see her looking elegant, sophisticated and glamorous, and this sexy floor-length gown was a little bit of a departure for her and it was good to see.

This gown is Versace at its very best – so beautiful!!
