Ok, so really this is one of my favourite times of the year because my best friend Kirsty and I have made watching the Academy Awards a tradition since we were about 14 or 15 years old. I don’t think we have ever actually watched them in the same room together but boy oh boy, the dissection we gave it the next day, it was easy to waste a lot of time talking about it! Only in recent years has the gowns and the fashion become as important for us and perhaps probably now a more talked about aspect of the awards then the awards themselves.
And so, here is my top pick of the best-dressed ladies on the red carpet at this year’s Oscars.
One of the simplest gowns of the night, and probably my favourite. Why? It just looks so darn cute and comfortable! Carey wears it well and her cute pixie cut suits her choice of gown so well.
Love it, love it, love it! The frills, the bling on the bodice but most of all, the colour, or should I say colours! Zoe chose a daring gown, and her instinct didn’t fail her. Heaven!
I hope I look this good at her age. I love this woman, she is just the best. This classic red compliments her colouring beautifully.
I was impressed with Cam this year. Most years she turns up with messy hair, chipped nail polish, and well, looking less than fresh.
Mrs Marc Anthony looks glamourous, and surprisingly youthful, don’t you think? Such a beautifully constructed gown, it would look good on anybody really, but it’s nice to see Jen looking so classy.
And now I must add a dishonourable mention to my list because I cannot not mention it.
I am so disappointed with SJP. The dress is a failure, it just doesn’t work. She looks dreadful and I just don’t know how this gown made it past the initial sketching phase. Harsh, maybe. But when you compare this gown the others above, well, I’m sure you’ll see what I mean.
