My 2013 Oscars Best Dressed – Ball Gowns, Laces And All Things Minimal

Ho! ho! ho! We witnessed yet again another night of glitz and glamour as the 85th Academy Awards came to it’s conclusion last night at the Dolby Theater.  The (my) Oscar fever ain’t over yet though as I am naming my top 10 Best Dressed for this year’s ceremony.

10. Amanda Seyfried

Amanda Seyfriend was looking etherially good a custom made Alexander McQueen gown matching it with Roger Vivier shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

8. Jennifer Lawrence

Big winner Jennifer Lawrence shines at the red carpet with her voluminous Dior gown which caused her to trip on her way to the stage to receive her Best Actress throphy.

7. Charlize Theron

Like Lawrence, Charlize also wore a white Dior dress which reminds me of the White dress explosion from last year's ceremony. She still pulled if off though and I'm loving her in this dress!

3. Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart was in a very beautiful Reem Acra gown who walked the red carpet in crutches. The actress apparently had her foot cut on glass two days before the big O. With or without the crutches, Kristen is rocking this look effortlessly!

Stacey Kiebler looked perfect in black and silver gown from Naeem Khan's enviable 2013 fall collection. This girl sure knows how to walk the red carpet! She's made it again this year :)

NUMERO UNO – ULTIMATE BEST DRESSED!

JESSICA CHASTAIN

She may have lost the big prize to Jennifer Lawrence but she clearly outstaged the Best Actress winner at the red carpet. Jessica was looking oh-so-good in a sequined Armani Prive nude gown. This girl's flawless! She's definitely my ultimate best dressed!

2011 SAG Awards Worst Dressed!

Nicole Kidman

We’re so frustrated to see Nicole in the red carpet looking sham once again! I mean seriously, we almost didnt notice her and when we did –we’re like. BLEH. So,we’re declaring her the worst of the night!FYI: she’s wearing a Nina Ricci dress.Nicole Kidman

***

Winona Ryder

This white Alberta Ferretti Dress would have been perfect for her if not for the black evening purse. Seriously, we don’t get the white theme she’s trying to deliver. FAIL.

Tina Fey

We usually love Tina Fey but not tonight and definitely not in this Oscar de la Renta gown!

Helena Bonham Carter

She definitely toned it down from the last time but we still don’t get it. This Marc Jacobs gown doesn’t really appeal to us. Kudos for the matching shoes tho.

Jenna Ushkowitz

I’m sure she didn’t get the Glee Girls Memo along with Naya Rivera, this Badgley Mischka gown is just way over the top for us!

Naya Rivera

This body-skimming Aurellio Costarella dress does not really compliment her body! damn! She should’ve look in the mirror first!

Marisa Hargitay

Another Oscar de la Renta disaster –nope, it’s not about the dress hun’

Christina Hendricks

Just another day in the office –wearing a L’Wren Scott –girl can’t really cover it up well!

Edie Falco

We love Edie Falco in Nurse Jackie but not in this Carolina Herrera dress. please.

Amy Adams

We’re half-hearted in this Herve L Leroux gown so we’re putting it in the middle of the best and worst.

The Oscar’s Fashion 2010 Edition

The BESTest!

Actress Rachel McAdams is definitely tonight’s big winner on the red carpet wearing Elie Saab creation.

Check this out! JLo never ceased to rock it on the red carpet! she’s wearing an Armani Prive gown.

this is what you call elegance, the 16th time Oscar nominated Meryl Streep wowed everyone with this regal creation of Project Runway alums Chris March.

Kristen Stewart is a first time Oscar attendee rocking a Monique Lhuillier gothic creation!

Kate Winslet can do no wrong with Yves Saint Laurent‘s creation.

***

FAILED!!!

I cannot for the life of me understand what the rose accent Charlize Theron was wearing on her lumps with her Christian Dior gown.

I love Vera Farmiga in Up In The Air but this Marchesa‘s creation is so over the top and way too busy that you cannot find the best supporting actress nominee.

This Givenchy creation is not just right for Zoe Saldana –there’s something off with it.

First time Best Actress nominee Carey Mulligan didn’t take Vogue’s editor Anna Wintour‘s advise and this was the dreadful results.  I’m lovin’ the Prada dress but what’s with the shoes???

I seriously don’t get the whole look of Amanda Seyfried tonight –it’s all too old fashion. It’s probably because JLo already got the better Armani Prive dress.
