The Oscar fashion gods have spoken, and 2013 was one helluvah year for glamorous dresses! Here are our top 5 picks (that’s right, we narrowed them wayyyy down!) for best dressed and best tressed at the 85th Academy Awards — because let’s be real, if the gals on the red carpet were having a bad hair day, their dresses just weren’t shining as bright, either.
Although she might have gone as George Clooney’s coveted arm candy, Stacy Keiber killed it in a Great Gatsby-inspired Naeem Khan gown (the same designer who outfitted the First Lady that evening)! The draped embellishments, high neckline, cinched waist, and ultra-revealing back accentuated her gorgeous body, and her loosley-pinned retro waves made her our best dressed of the night!
Amy Adams was the sweetest confection in this gorgeously-tiered Oscar de la Renta. The pale blue gown complimented her pale skin and red hair to fairytale perfection! We love how Amy kept it simple with drop earrings, a cuff, and a parted-down-the-middle updo. So chic — we’ll have this look for dessert, please!
The 22-year-old Best Actress winner definitely looked the part in Christian Dior! We adored Jennifer’s classic upwsept ‘do paired with diamond earrings, a delicate back necklace, and silver clutch (we have a similar one here). This pale pink, dramatic fit-and-flair gown hugged Jennifer’s enviable curves — and equally enviable tiny waist — like a glove, and the ladylike color was reminiscent of bridal couture. Well, it was certainly her day, so we say cheers to the happy couple — Oscar and his lady!
Holy movie star status! Jessica’s look was every bit the Old Hollywood tribute — the sparkly, fitted, beaded gown; the long, undone waves; the delicate jewels; the perfectly-lined red lips; and a megawatt smile. We’re head-over-heels for Jessica’s acting chops, too, which certainly helped her case. :)
Dear Charlize, can we please be as effortlessly cool as you? Wearing a white-hot Christian Dior peplum gown and sporting a fabulously chic pixie, Charlize is that popular girl in school that guys adore and women envy beyond measure. Her dress and hair combo scream modern sophistication. *Sigh.*
