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
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
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!
