Fashion Spotlight: Oscars 2013 Red Carpet and Show Highlights

8:13 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.


1. Amy Adams in Oscar dela Renta
She looks every bit a princess in this number. The details were fine and the long train looked dramatic on her, well suited for the Oscars. (Oscar dela Renta is one of my favorite designers. Just saying. :D)

2. Adele in Jenny Packham
Yet another black ensemble for this talented lady, but she made sure to look sultry as she sang "Skyfall" on the stage and when she won the award for Best Original Song. ;)

3. Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen
Did you know that this dress was custom made for her? Wow. How many people in this planet can proudly say, "I have a custom made Alexander McQueen dress." Not many I'm sure and she deserves to be one of them! This talented actress looks fresh and vibrant for McQueen.

4. Catherine Zeta Jones in Zuhair Murad
She is glowing in this beautiful gown! When did she stop aging again? CZJ looks as young as ever. And her jazz number during the show was superb.

5. Charlize Theron in Dior
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!

7. Halle Berry in Versace
This dress made her shine through the crowd. She looks stunning.

And now here come the Jennifer's.

8. Jennifer Aniston in Valentino
Very few tried to wear the ball gown in color and Aniston is one of them. With no slit showing from Angelina Jolie, Aniston wanted attention she deserves. Did she get it? Perhaps. The dress is beautiful as it is but looks a bit big on her.

9. Jennifer Garner in Gucci
Garner looks ethereal in this Gucci number. She looks fresh, happy, all of it. She carries this dress well and plum seems to be her color.

10. Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Couture
 Another white dress. BUT it is not just another white dress because this is JLaw we're talking about. Have I mentioned how much I love her as an actress? (I guess I have, duh, Hunger Games post.) She's very versatile and spontaneous. She deserves her Best Actress award and I was even nervous when they were announcing the award. (Affected?) Haha! If you saw how she tripped on the stairs as she made her way to accept the award, I was like "Oh, JLaw I love you!" Still graceful even when tripping. How I wish all of us could trip and still look as great as her. Haha! Anyhoo, I was also waiting for what she would wear for Oscars, seeing that she wore beautiful dresses in the previous awards nights. No one would doubt that she isn't a winner. 

10. Jennifer Hudson in Roberto Cavalli
Our last Jennifer on the list. Wow girl, way to flaunt your new, hot bod! The hair, the dress, the look, a little bit iffy on the shoes, though but whatever, she had a standing ovation on the Dreamgirls feature, so no one's questioning her. 

11. Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive
This Oscar-nominated actress IS a star. Look at how she's working her dress! Classic ensemble, lovely face.

12. Kerry Washington in Miu Miu
Looking young in her mermaid-esque dress, Washington walker her way through Oscars with this coral number and an infectious smile on her face.

13. Kristin Chenoweth in Tony Ward Couture
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.

14. Maria Menounos in Romona Keveza
This lady is one of my favorite hosts! She's so pretty and effortless in this pink dress. It also shows of her amazing curves. Gotta love her.

15. Naomi Watts in Armani Prive
Though she did not bag the Best Actress Award, I still give her the award for "Best Dressed Female". Agree? Just look at her! Her gown is different from all the others and she made sure that she carries it beautifully. (I love sequined dresses that's why I love her look. :P)


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.

19. Reese Witherspoon in Louis Vuitton
Perfect hair! Though, I am not digging her dress that much.

20. Renee Zellwegger in Carolina Herrera
Sexy lady! Wow! Look at the way the dress hugs her body. She's stunning as the gold of her dress.

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.

23. Samantha Barks in Valentino
This lady's voice is magnificent! I loved her as Eponine in LesMiz. Plus the cast did an amazing job in their number at the show. And look at her waistline! In the movie, we noticed how small her waistline is, but we thought that it was just because of the corset she's wearing, but no, it's the real deal. She made a safe decision in choosing a simple black dress, but a bold one in choosing to show off her cleavage like this. Wise girl.

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.

 If you're wondering why our darling, Anne Hathaway is not on this list, well... Let's just say that her Prada dress is not what we would choose for her on this event. Still love her, though. And, if you were intently watching the show (like me), you may have noticed the men who wore their facial hair proudly. Haha! I don't know, was it a trend or something? Anyhoo, the men looked dapper and dashing in their suits.

1. Ben Affleck
The director/producer of the Best Picture is one of the many men who is in their facial hair. Loved his speech as well. 

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


Here are some of my favorite moments from the show.

LesMiz perferomace. I had goosebumps during this one. ;)

Adele's Skyfall performance. Okay. I really waited for this one! I love Adele, that's why. ;)

Jack Nicholson and US First Lady, Michelle Obama presenting the award for 'Best Picture'. WOW.

Some snapshots from my favorite winners of the night.  ;)
