With the Oscars trailing not far behind the Winter Olympics, it seems that the ladies of the evening donned shades of our nation’s beloved red, white, and blue!  Hollywood’s “It” Girl Jennifer Lawrence (pictured, top right) sported her favorite hue in Dior Haute Couture.  Three of our favorites chose to wear different hues of blue.  Sandra Bullock (pictured, top right) seemed to be everyone’s top choice of the evening in her stunning sapphire Alexander McQueen gown.  With her sweetheart neckline, draped waist, and side swept curls, Bullock rocked old Hollywood glam with a touch of modern (notice the blue nails) and positively glowed in her custom Lorraine Schwartz jewels.  Ever the classy lady, Lupita Nyong’o (pictured, below) was show-stopping in her pale blue Prada gown, that deserved an award all its own.  Nyong’o has been hitting the red carpet in anything but pastels this awards season, but Sunday night she was a modern-day princess.  lupita-nyong'o-3The double-plunging neckline on the front and back was beautifully balanced with that full, gathered skirt.  From her head to her hands, she was adorned in multiple yellow gold and diamond Fred Leighton pieces ranging all the way back to the 1800s.  Amy Adams (pictured, below left) kept it all about the dress when she chose that deliciously dark royal blue Gucci Premiere number.  Adams swept her beautiful curls up into an interesting take on the French twist and pulled it off seamlessly.  She chose to keep the jewelry as delicate as her sheath with color coordinated Tiffany & Co. earrings and minimalist rings.  Kate Hudson (pictured, below right) looked fabulous in glamorous white, a matured and improved version of her other stunning look by Atelier Versace in 2003.  Other popular looks of the evening were nude or pale pink gowns with either metallic accents or an asymmetrical design.  Both Jessica Biel and Penelope Amy-Adams-9Cruz failed to pull off these trends.  With Biel’s enviable body, her dress choice should have been more detail-oriented.  Her Chanel Haute Couture nude and metallic number ended up looking cheap and like a last-minute decision, which is very hard to do in Chanel.  Cruz chose to wear a pastel petal pink Giambattista Valli dress which looked more like she was chaperoning a prom in the suburbs, rather than attending the Oscars.  Being a one shouldered frock, adorning a tiny black bow around the waist, and excess material at the other arm, this dress looked unfinished and like it didn’t know what it wanted to be.  But our final favorite was stunning couple Matthew McConaughey and wife Camila Alves (pictured, bottom).  America’s favorite Texan wore a winter white Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo, while his lovely wife, Camila, wore a pale pink Gabriela Cadena half-caped gown, which was the best one-shouldered look we’ve ever seen!  And just like the Olympics, McConaughey took home gold!matthew-mcconaughey-5-camila-alves-1

One thought on “2014 Oscar Rundown

  1. Just lovely. It must be so much fun dressing for the Oscars. Elegant drapes of fabric are stunning compared to some of the red carpet outfits seen in 2015 …..half-naked is not classy and leaves nothing to the imagination! These Oscar ladies know how it’s done.
