Best of 2017 Academy Awards Red Carpet

If it weren’t for Taraji P.Henson and the final 4 (meaning the last 4 memorable arrivals on the red carpet: Emma Stone, Brie Larson, Viola Davis and Naomie Harris) this red carpet could have easily gone in history as the worst of the worst. So many fails, safe and boring choices, I’m really underwhelmed of everything I’ve seen tonight – and quite frankly really disappointed since this will be the last major red carpet till MET Gala in May. It was so bad that I HAD TO add Dakota Johnson in that should-have-been-beautiful-but-it’s-not butter Gucci and her weird hair & Jessica Biel in that gorgeous Kaufmanfranco that she managed to ruin with that horrible necklace to the best dressed list in order to reach 20 looks in total. Couple of notes to take before wedding/prom season: black velvet is IN so deep that.. OK I’m not going to make a sex joke about it but it’s IN. Also high neck red gowns, if you’re looking for an alternative style that non of your cousins will …

87th Academy Awards Red Carpet

Tonight, Lupita Nyong’o not only outdid herself or everyone else on the red carpet but she also outdid ANY dress that will make appearance on any red carpet ever again. She wore the ultimate fancy frock, the most beautiful dress in the history of dresses. Francisco Costa, designer of Calvin Klein, created this mesmerizing mermaid gown using 6,000 pearls and my god, it is breathtaking. Not only will it go down in history as one of the best looks of Academy Awards, but most probably also be displayed in a museum some day. My all time can-do-no-wrong star Naomi Watts came in second, if not for Lupita could have easily been no 1, stunned in a grey printed deep cut halterneck Armani Privé dress with a bralette detail from the side and back. 50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson was also one of the hits in a sleek red Saint Laurent (Christian would have looooved it) with the most perfect one shoulder detail I’ve ever seen in my life. Rosamund Pike in red hot …

85th Annual Academy Awards Red Carpet

I’m going to apologize from the start, since I have to run so many errands I will keep this post short (as opposed to previous red carpet review posts). The most exciting red carpet of the year is over (actually for me the most exciting is the MET Gala, but Oscars are the most sought after, obviously) and I have to say that I am pretty dissappointed. With Nicole Kidman losing her edge years ago, Amy Adams playing safe for the past few award shows, Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain both opting for princess look keeping in mind there is a  high possibility of getting a goldy figurine (nobody wants to take a risk and turn the best day of their lives into a worst dressed list nightmare), Anne Hathaway actually thinking she is Audrey Hepburn (I blame the chop) but miserably failing to be so (there is and will be only one Audrey, sorry) and of course – absence of Cate Blanchett, Gwyneth Paltrow and Tilda Swinton; 85th Annual Academy Awards Red Carpet gave …

50 Most Beautiful Dresses of Academy Awards History

1951 – Marilyn Monroe 1954 – Audrey Hepburn in Givenchy 1955 – Grace Kelly in Edith Head With just 1 day to go; I wanted to reminiscence the most gorgeous and unforgettable dresses of Academy Awards History – from 1951 to 2012. Aside from THE trio (and Elizabeth Taylor) the obvious winners of the list are Cate Blanchett, Gwyneth Paltrow and Michelle Williams (with runners up Nicole Kidman, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba and Penelope Cruz). As for designers there is no surprise – Christian Dior, Valentino, Vera Wang, Elie Saab, Marchesa and Versace left their marks on the red carpet through the years, just like they still do. I wish I could say the same about shoes though, Americans are not as tasteful as Europeans when it comes to red carpet shoes. Anyways, just click through to see the rest of the list! (I am talking about a memory lane in which Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz still had it, Sienna Miller introduced the boho chic to the red carpet and Marion Cotillard wore gowns …
