Fashion Spotlight: Oscars 2013 Red Carpet and Show Highlights8:13 PM
It's that time of the year again, when celebrities and movie lovers alike flock on to the most prestigious award giving body- Academy Awards (Oscars).
I, for one, am a big fan of awards nights like this even as a child and if I can't watch them, I make sure that I know what happened then. Good thing for me, Oscars 2013 came right on to the anniversary of Edsa Revolution, a holiday and I got the chance to watch it (via livestream) thanks to the wonders of the internet. ;)
Why am I saying these non-sense things? I know you want to see Hollywood's Best Dressed and some highlights of the night. Here it goes.

On to the dresses...
The peg for this year's Oscars dresses had been white, black, and sparkly. There were also few pops of color here and there. Many impressed us with their beautiful gowns, but some also failed to make the cut.
Wow. Does she ever look ugly in anything? Her look is classic, however I expected a little bit more from her. After all, she's Charlize Theron.
6. Fan Bing Bing in Marchesa
Ahhhhm. I haven't got the slightest idea who she is BUT OH MY GOSH HER DRESS! Very debutante! I love it!
Looking young in her mermaid-esque dress, Washington walker her way through Oscars with this coral number and an infectious smile on her face.
Don't you just love her? Chenoweth did some numbers on the pre-show and also did the final number with Sean. She's quite funny and her dress looks great on her.
16. Nicole Kidman in L'Wren Scott
Another lady who doesn't age. Come on people tell me your secrets! I want to look the same when I reach your age! Haha! Though the dress looks a little bit overworked for me, this is one of Kidman's best outfits- yet.
17. Olivia Munn in Marchesa
Exquisite embroidery on the dress, just the right amount of drapes, good color combination, head turning lippie- way to go in pulling off this look, Miss Munn!
18. Queen Latifah in Badgley Mischka
The Queen looks elegant in this simple white dress. She's dazzling.
Perfect hair! Though, I am not digging her dress that much.
21. Robin Roberts in Marc Bouwer
I love the color of her velvet dress. It suits her well and she's looking great and in shape!
22. Salma Hayek in Alexander McQueen
Salma Hayek!! She has been one of my favorites since I watched 'Bandidas'. I love her dress! The blue velvet + amazing neckpiece. Wow. Just wow.
24. Sandra Bullock in Ellie Saab
This Oscar winner actress looked elegant in this lacey number. Though she did not put much effort in anything else, she still looks beautiful.
2. Bradley Cooper
3. Channing Tatum
4. Chris Pine
5. Chris Evans
6. Daniel Radcliffe
Hey, Danny boy! ;) (Ahm, why did he have to present with Stewart?! The lady looked like she didn't want to be there at all. Just saying. Oh well.)
7. Daniel Day- Lewis
8. George Clooney
9. Hugh Jackman
10. Jeremy Renner
11. Joseph Gordon- Levitt
No one is allowed to question why this man is this list. Haha!
12. Justin Theroux
Jack Nicholson and US First Lady, Michelle Obama presenting the award for 'Best Picture'. WOW.
Some snapshots from my favorite winners of the night. ;)
