Couch Critique: 2013 Oscars

I am always ready to throw my two cents into the digital ring when it comes to Fashion. I always look forward to award season because the women have unprecedented access to the most amazing, custom clothes and the most expensive and exquisite jewels on the planet. I once again was underwhelmed by the dress choices and the lack of jewelry on the carpet, by way of necklaces.

As I said in my Golden Globe blog there were a lot of bare chests! Strapless dresses are all the rage with NO necklaces it seems. What a waste when these celebrities have access to borrow the best jewelry in the world. Imagine A glamorous movie star like Elizabeth Taylor on an Oscar red carpet with no necklace? 

A necklace is obviously not appropriate to be styled with every look but can add some Hollywood glamour to a strapless dress on a red carpet.

The looks I liked BEST from the Red Carpet (in no particular order)
 Charlize Theron in DIOR. It is very clean and chic! She is always stunning. Here is an example where a necklace would have completed the look!

Georgina Chapman (Deisgner for Marchesa) is STUNNING and 8 months pregnant in a white Marchesa dress with jeweled shrug. (Pictured with husband Harvey Weinstein)

 Halle Berry in custom VERSACE. To me she is either tacky or in Marchesa when she hits the carpet. I love this departure for her. But PLEASE do something new with your hair. She is so beautiful, but its time for a change!
 Stacy Keibler gave the Actresses/Celebs a run for their money in this dress by Naeem Kahn, it was tailored to perfection!
Kerry Washington in Miu Miu. I love this coral color and the jewel encrusted bodice! Necklace next time please.

Naomi Watts & Jessica Chastaine both in Armani Prive. Each dress was perfectly tailored to their bodies. I LOVED Jessica's Vintage 1960's Harry Winston Bracelet (but she needed the matching necklace)

This year had BETTER after party looks. White was the color of the night!!

PARTY TIME: My Fav looks!

 Model Caroline Murphy in a dark Coral Calvin Klein

 Fan Bing Bing in a Peach Perfect Spring 2012 Elie Saab Couture Dress

  Model Molly Sims Wearing a White Hot Temperley London frock.

 Juliette Lewis in Vionnet, she looks fresh and beautiful. I love the draping and the print.

These sisters SHINE! Khloe Kardashian rocks Citrus Chic in Kaufman Franco Fall 2012 AND Kourtney is pure retro glamour in this red/black floral Brian Rennie for Basler. I LOVE the back cut out.

Nicole Richie is so chic in Robert Cavalli

 Miley OWNED in this white Azzaro backless dress. She's become so stylish since the hair cut. BRAVO!

Natalie Portman in DIOR. J'Adore
 Miranda Kerr channels a Vintage Vixen in this Valentino Gown

Kate Beckensale did not play it safe in this Monique Lhullier dress. It screams PARTY and I love the volume on the bottom. Fabulous!

BEST Correspondent Look:

Kimora Lee Simmons for E!. She was pure glamour in this black sheer over nude Maria Lucia Hohan Gown. I loved the touch of diamonds at the neck at ears and it is such a breath of fresh air to see her hair up. Very sleek and chic! 

That's a WRAP!
