We enjoyed the red carpet fashions from this year's Golden Globes, SAG Awards, and the Grammys so much that we were waiting with baited breath to see the red carpet at the 83rd Academy Awards. Unfortunately, it was all for naught. To say the red carpet left us a little underwhelmed would be the best assessment. Still, there were several lovely looks we liked. See them below:
Lady in Red
Jennifer Lawrence, in a custom Calvin Klein dress,Sandra Bullock, in Vera Wang, and host Anne Hathaway, in vintage Valentino all looked bold and beautiful in red hot hues. Sandra and Anne had some flair with pretty trains, while Jennifer surprised us in a sexy bare bones look that let her body do the talking.
Oscar nominees Michelle Williams (also an Academy Award nominee), in Chanel and Hailee Steinfeld, in Marchesa, together with Mila Kunis, in Elie Saab looked fab in perfectly pretty textured dresses. Mila has really been working the lilac dresses this year, and the peek-a-boo lace and chiffon look is stunning here. We also think young Hailee looks pretty and age appropriate in this blush tulle.
Camila Alves, in Kaufman Franco, and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson in Versace were two of our favorite looks. We love voluminous dresses, and these show stoppers did not disappoint. We love the tangerine color of Jennifer's dress and the way it accentuated her waist and long lean body. Va-va-va-voom!
We love a good sparkle dress- and Mandy Moore, in Monique Lhuillier, and Oscar nominee Amy Adams in L'Wren Scott looked stylish in their shimmery sparkle dresses. Mandy's elegant look was unexpected, but a great surprise.
Academy Award winners Hilary Swank, in Gucci, and Halle Berry, in Marchesa looked totally glamorous in their embellished gowns. Although, there were tweets and blog postings asking whether the looks (especially Halle's) were over-the-top, we loved them! This is what the Oscars are all about. The silver screen's big night, and the best of the best. You can't drive that point home without beads, feathers, and tulle.
We want to hear from you. What were your favorite looks? Were you excited by the looks on this year's red carpet?
