Red Carpet Style: Oscars Re-cap

March 3, 2014

The Oscars are my favorite award show to watch simply because how regal everything is, including the dresses. I don’t get starry eyed over Hollywood Stars, but Gabe and I love analyzing movies, their storylines, and their main actors. The Oscars usually provides my movies to watch and avoid round up;) So here’s a little re-cap of the night…

Best Dressed: Naomi Watts, Camila Alvarez
Best Speech: Lupita Nyong
Well Deserved Win: Frozen
Could have dressed better: Anne Hathaway (She should’ve stuck with Rachel Zoe;))
Best celebrity doppleganger: Jared Letto as Jesus

I am always expected lots of black and red gowns on the Oscars Red Carpet so I gasped when I saw Naomi Watts in this white/ivory Calvin Klein dress. Every inch of it was beaded! The simple rhinestone bib necklace was the perfect finish along with her sleek hair style. Did you see Calista Flockharts dress? Very similar and equally stunning. I especially loved the cut to this dress. Modest, but extremely flattering and feminine. It proves you don’t have to be over the top to make best dressed lists nationwide!

Another favorite….

I think why I always love Julia, even if her dress is cutting edge, is that she knows who she is. She knows what she likes and what looks well on her. Since she is widely loved in Hollywood, she can get away with wearing simpler dresses and still look magnificent. So, when challenged to come with a One of a Kind Red Carpet ready daytime look from my own closet, I had to go with Julia Robert’s look.
I pulled a few black pieces to mix and match and came up with this…

A little more formal than every day but I would wear this to a fancy dinner anytime. Its fun to put on a bold pair of lips every once in a while. The hair is actually my every day fun bun toppled look, but it can work for going out as well right?

Julia’s best feature? Her smile. Hands down. So flashing my whites is what I am sorely lacking in these pics šŸ˜€
Now its your turn. Best dressed? I want to hear your votes!
Hope you had a fun weekend!

  • I love your look, re-created and inspired by Julia Roberts last night. Your skirt is too perfect! My favorite look of the Oscars goes to Emma Watson. Everything from her her dress to her hair to her bold red lip were a combined timeless look for me.

  • You look SO gorgeous! Loved the Oscars last night!!!

  • I loooooved the color and fabric of Lupita’s dress, but not the plunging neckline. Naomi’s dress would be a great unorthodox wedding dress, wouldn’t it? But I think that my favorite has to be Emma Watson’s shimmery black number: understated without being boring, modest without being frumpy.

    • Christina,
      Completely forgot to mention Emma! I agree! Loved hers so much!
      Also thought the same about Lupita. The color was beautiful:)

  • pretty lady! love that ring. naomi watts is one of my best dressed too! i actually really liked anne hathaway’s dress. haha! we have watched frozen four times since we bought it friday. it’s SO good!

    • This is why I love hearing different takes on the Oscars. Its all about how you relate to different styles:) Can’t wait to buy Frozen!

  • You look stunning, Anna…definitely red carpet ready. Love that lace top and day to night bun! I loved EVERYTHING about Lupita’s look. Simple elegance.

  • Great look! All of your picks are on point! I was definitely disappointed in Anne Hathaway!

  • The outfit you chose has the perfect balance of sexy and sweet. The harsh edges of your jewelry pieces and the monochrome black are a perfect red carpet feature. The red lip and playful hairstyle complement the darker tones in a soft, lovely manner.
    Best dressed last night? Well I loved Angelina Jolie’s Elie Saab elegance.

  • you’re right Lupita’s speech was THE best! I totally cried

  • My favorite what Jennifer Garner in the silver beaded fringe by Oscar de la Renta. Oh, and I completely agree with you about Anne. Hopefully she returns to Zoe in the near future!

  • Jana Zuniga
