Oscars 2013 - Best Dressed

Amy Adams 

Amy Adams shined in an Oscar de la Renta gown that is one of the best examples of couture on the red carpet. Lovely details that are bold enough that it won't go unnoticed.
Amy Adams has never been a risk-taker - style-wise - but this gown was a great choice.
Kind of reminds me of the stunning mille-feuille Versace from Carrie Bradshaw's swan-song episode.

Jane Fonda 

The shining, bright-yellow Versace Atelier gown has a definitive '80s vibe (are those shoulder pads?), but that's more than acceptable. In fact, it's wonderful. As cliché as it is to call her a ray of sunshine, but I can't find another way to put it. Ladies, this is a reminder that there's no excuse for dressing down when it comes to the biggest night of the year.

Charlize Theron

This is my favorite gown this year.
Charlize Theron could wear a garbage bag and I'd still think she looked breathtaking. The graceful and gorgeous Theron wore a clean, white Dior Haute Couture floor-length gown with a peplum waist. The only accessories Theron added were two sparkling bracelets - fitting, since her short hair and crisp neckline lent itself to minimalistic perfection.

Jessica Chastain

She wore a sparkling taupe custom Armani gown and Harry Winston jewels.
Not sure how I feel about this color on a pale, fair-haired woman like Jessica. But it looks like she pulled it off.

Naomi Watts 

Naomi Watts showed up looking like an Armani Privé-clad android, she set her own personal bar even higher. Watts went avant garde without being overdone, and let her meltingly glamourous sequined number speak for itself with just the perfect touch of Neil Lane diamonds.

Zoe Saldana

The amazing thing about this Alexis Mabille dress (also topped with Neil Lane jewels) is its ability to be at once stiff and sweeping, prim and sexy, light and dark - just like Saldana herself who's as serious on screen as she is lovable in real life.

Amanda Seyfried 

One of my favorite dresses is this gorgeous McQueen, and apparently she was in agreement. The actress went with Sarah Burton's work again. And she brought it — pale, glamourous, and shimmering, Amanda Seyfried blew away any competition.


Jennifer Lawrence 

She might have been left red-faced when her voluminous Dior gown caused her to trip up while making her way on stage to collect her Best Actress Award, but she certainly looked stunning!

Catherine Zeta Jones 

She looked beautiful in a Zuhair Murad dress. However, I didn't like how she appeared to have caked on the make-up, hiding her natural beauty under a thick layer of foundation, fake tan and false eyelashes.

Samantha Barks in Valentino

That neckline is to die for! I wish I could pull that off! haha
If you didn't know the name Samantha Barks by now, here's hoping this dress (and her performance in Les Miserables) will help remind you.

Stacy Keibler in Naeem Khan

George Clooney and Stacy Keibler made their second Oscars appearance together this year. However, Stacy Keibler was the center of attention on the red carpet with her Naeem Khan gown.
The high neckline and black belt at her waist only add to her statuesque look.



  1. Carrie's gown was Atelier Versace not Valentino ;)

    What did you think about Jennifer Garner in the purple Gucci?


    1. Oops! Just fixed it :)
