Oscars 2013: Anne Hathaway In Prada


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-LawrenceWho: 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-chopardOscars-jennifer-lawrence-[Pics: via Oscar.com & Dior]

BAFTA Awards: Jennifer Garner In Roland Mouret

BAFTA-j-garner-rolandmouretWho: 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!!!

Golden Globes 2013: Jessica Alba In Oscar de la Renta

Who: Jessica Alba

Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A strapless melon silk-faille Oscar de la Renta gown featuring a trumpet skirt, sweetheart neckline from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with Jimmy Choo Kalpa platform sandals, a Roger Vivier clutch and an incredible Harry Winston diamond necklace

Verdict: Melon is an interesting description to this dress I would go for coral but hey who am I to argue with Oscar de la Renta. This gown is gorgeous, I love the neckline, the drama of the trumpet skirt and train, and even the colour – it kind of fitting into the nude/light pink trend that swept the Golden Globes red carpet.

But come on surely all eyes are on her neck and that amazing Harry Winston necklace, which according to the press release is valued at $5.8 million – that is serious bling – I bet she has a bodyguard or two keeping an eye on that beauty!!!

The only thing I am not loving has to be that furry clutch – for me it is a little unnecessary – but hey such a tiny thing as everything else is fab including her gorgeous old-Hollywood locks.
