So the 85th Academy Awards kicked off on Sunday evening – and while I didn’t watch live that night, I managed to catch 4 of the big awards at the very end when I got up early for work! For those who are hopelessly out of the loop – the big winners:
- Best Picture: “Argo.”
- Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis, “Lincoln.”
- Actress: Jennifer Lawrence, “Silver Linings Playbook.”
- Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz, “Django Unchained.”
- Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway, “Les Miserables.”
- Directing: Ang Lee, “Life of Pi.”
And of course I have to mention Best Documentary Feature: “Searching for Sugar Man”, most of which was filmed in South Africa.
But that’s enough of the awards. We all want to know who looked good! My favourites included Jennifer Lawrence (who tripped over her huge dress going up to collect her award) and Jessica Chastain – 100% elegant and beautiful. Here we go!
This year’s Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence for Silver Linings Playbook was the belle of the ball in a white-and-pale pink strapless Dior Haute Couture gown with fitted bustier and poufy hemline, sophisticated pulled-back hair, diamond-ball earrings and a delicate long necklace that hung down in the back.
This year’s Best Actress nominee Naomi Watts was shimmering in a gunmetal beaded Armani Prive gown with a geometric cutout on the bodice.
Snow White And The Huntsman actress Theron was sleek in an angular strapless dress with a fashion-right peplum and a buzz-cut hairdo.
Zero Dark Thirty actress may have lost to Jennifer Lawrence for the Best Actress Oscar this year but her gown did not. She wore a glistening copper-tone strapless Armani Prive gown with mermaid hem.
Amy flaunted her toned figure in a silver-gray Oscar de la Renta gown with a beaded bodice and a tulle-embellished skirt.
Les Miserables actress Amanda Seyfried looked pretty in Alexander McQueen gown with a keyhole opening.
Giuliana Rancic in Rafael Cennamo. The black gown is elegant, yet understated and all the couture-like detail adds curves.
Former Friends star kept up the tradition of Valentino’s special brand of Hollywood red, wearing a strapless princess gown.
George Clooney’s girlfriend was shining in a silver-and-black Naeem Khan gown which had a flapper vibe.
