Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Diane Kruger In Giambattista Valli

diane kruger VF2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Diane Kruger In Giambattista Valli  %tagWho: 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?

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Kate Beckinsale Wearing Monique Lhuillier

kate beckinsale VF2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Kate Beckinsale Wearing Monique Lhuillier %tagWho: Kate Beckinsale

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

Wearing: A strapless tulle Monique Lhuillier dress with gold embroidery from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with Jimmy Choo shoes, a Roger Vivier Paint Box clutch and Chopard jewellery

Verdict: I love this autumn/winter 2013 collection from Monique Lhuillier and this gold-embroidered beauty was perfect for the Vanity Fair party and looked incredible on Kate Beckinsale.

I missed Kate at the main event she always does seem to bring the glamour and I love this princess tulle dress as it is whimsical, stylish and fun, which sometimes isn’t always the case with big Hollywood events.

It is dresses like this that makes the Vanity Fair party red carpet better than the Oscars main event.

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: 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: Jennifer Lawrence In Dior Couture

Dior Jennifer Lawrence Oscars 2013: Jennifer Lawrence In Dior Couture %tagWho: Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence

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

Wearing: A pale pink and white strapless silk bustier Christian Dior Haute Couture ball gown teamed with a Chopard necklace and earrings and a metallic Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit clutch

Verdict: Well, I think everyone had already predicted that Jennifer Lawrence would wear Dior after her Miss Dior campaign was unveiled last week. I was hoping for something custom-made, something that would wow, and something that would be age appropriate and suitable for a nominated actress.

This pretty Dior couture gown did that to an extent, the voluminous skirt made a dramatic impact, the colour was girlie and youthful, and the fit was sublime. I worry though that like with Anne Hathaway too much emphasis will be spent comparing it to Gwyneth Paltrow’s pale pink gown that she wore when she won her Oscar.

One thing I do absolutely adore is the simple styling of this gown, the Chopard necklace down her back is delicate and stylish, granted not new, but a trend that done right looks stunning. I also love her smoky eyes and elegant up-do.Jennifer lawrence chopard Oscars 2013: Jennifer Lawrence In Dior Couture %tagOscars jennifer lawrence  Oscars 2013: Jennifer Lawrence In Dior Couture %tag[Pics: via Oscar.com & Dior]

BAFTA Awards: Jennifer Garner In Roland Mouret

BAFTA j garner rolandmouret BAFTA Awards: Jennifer Garner In Roland Mouret %tagWho: Jennifer Garner

Where: At the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards held at the Royal Opera House in London

Wearing: A monochrome Roland Mouret ‘Alava’ gown from the spring/summer 2013 collection, featuring an architectural peplum and sash, teamed with a Roger Vivier clutch, diamond drop earrings and a bracelet

Verdict: Wow, Jennifer Garner really has been a stylish wife during this award season supporting her hubbie Ben Affleck, who last night took home the Best Director and Best Film BAFTAs for his film Argo. I really have enjoyed her return to the red carpet and this exquisite, structured and sophisticated Roland Mouret gown looked incredible on her last night.

There were a lot of monochrome looks and this was by far my favourite, I love the architectural detailing around the waist, the sash really does clinched in her waist, and what I adore is that you wouldn’t even know it was cold and snowy as she doesn’t let it bother her one bit.

Finishing her amazing look was a gorgeous up-do, diamond jewellery and of her flawless make-up.

I seriously can’t wait to see her Oscar look!!!
