And it was great. In fact, fashion wise it was one of the best I’ve seen in a long time. As a film geek and a fashion addict I enjoyed it tremendously sans le Oscar snub Dicaprio was yet again faced with. Seriously? Let’s not go there though. Maybe in a next post.

Another ‘seriously! wtf?’ moment for me was Jennifer Lawrence fall. Cooooome ooooon now. You can’t tell a good joke twice and hope it has the same laughing effect you know. That’s what I thought of the fall anyway. And the back necklace. It was Oscars 2013 re-run, that may have us like her even more, or not so much. Great timing that Daft Punk was there to give her a hand. Not. But that would have been hilarious. oscars 2014  jennifer lawrence falls over    again 2014 Oscars Red Carpet.

Ethereal and so feminine. lupita nyongo 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedAnd speaking of speeches – Matthew McConaughey’s was by far my fave with the already coined phrase ‘alright, alright, alright.’

Let’s talk fashion though. It was all white, ivory, metallics and dusted feminine colors. Even tux wise, so many men opted for the retro classic white tux jacket. Jared Leto, Matthew McConaughey, Ryan Seacrest I’m looking at you. oscars 2014 mcconaughey best actor 2014 Oscars Red Carpet.

Best & Worst DressedI know the title of this post is about best AND worst, but I’m having a very kind moment right now, and really feel that this year most actresses nailed it. It only comes to show you if you keep it simple and classy, and go for feminine styles you’ll probably so effortlessly land on the best dressed list. Although, honestly I don’t know how much they actually give a crap about these lists invading the internet post-Oscars, but for the sake of conversation we’ll keep doing them.

Best Dressed at the 2014 Oscars. 

Everyone. Well almost. Lupita stole the show in that Nairobi blue custom made Prada dress and her headband. Regarding the latter… (please don’t hate) I’m not very sold on it. Yeah, she pulled it off. She’s incredibly beautiful, feminine, young, fun, elegant, so a sack on her head would have had the same effect. To me that tiara was a bit of a last minute bling. 2014 oscars red carpet lupita nyongo 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedAnd then there were the ladies in whites and dusted ivory colors with sequins, crystals beads and metallics. Angelina Jolie: OMG. I’m never so in aww with her granny dresses, but this… this Elie Saab gown was perfection. angelina jolie 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedCate Blanchet: a HIT! It was so her, in that understated glamorous way. Beautiful. cate blanchet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedJessica Biel was the epitome of simple elegance in an ivory metallic strapless gown and side parted old Hollywood hairstyle. Loved her look. jessica biel 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedNaomi Watts: ah! Stunning in an effortless way. White, sparkly, cap-sleeve Calvin Klein. Loved her look and that necklace. naomi watts 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedWhite goes a long way apparently. I wonder, do they all chat before and decide to start a red carpet trend? Who knows… but really those who went for the white’ish dresses rocked it. Kate Hudson shines on the red carpet. All. The. Time. She’s one of my faves. This year she opted for a gorgeous old Hollywood style in a white, plunging V-neckline, semi-cape-draping in the back, Versace frosty look. kate hudson 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedKelly Osbourne’s always a favorite in my eyes. Loved her white dress. And her black one, in which she changed afterwards. kelly osbourne 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedAnd last but not least… Camila Alves. Simply beauty & perfection. Loved the dusted pink dress with a bit of draping. camila alves 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet.

It is said those do not photograph that well, and are not so wow-ing for the Oscars, but… whatever. I mean, did you see Charlize Theron. That’s how you do fashion on the red carpet. LOVE. That Dior dress fits her ridiculously well, and her short hair and minimal jewelry compliment this ultimate elegance. charlize theron 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedAmy Adams went for a very simple, clean cut dress. The exact opposite of her character, and her past choices. She did say she chose this dress for herself, cause she wanted to feel comfy classy simple and chic. Loved the earrings and all this clean elegant look. may adams 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedKerry Washington – amazing! Perfect dress. Loved the hair & the dark lips. kerry weashington 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedJennifer Lawrence. Okay she’s beautiful and fun no matter what. I really liked her Dior red peplum dress, although I thought the peplum was placed too low for her long torso. But maybe it was just a bad angle. Love her new hair and the classic elegance it oozes. The back necklace? Been there done that. By her. Last year. As was the fall. jennifer lawrence 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedSandra Bullock did her own thing and wore a simple but slightly sophisticated dress in dark blue. Minimal bling and just let own self and inner elegance and beauty do the work. And it worked. Simple and beautiful. movies oscars 2014 sandra bullock red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedOlivia Wilde – gorgeous! As most actresses she too went for simple, classy and time-less and nailed it 100%. Loved her earrings and her makeup. Speaking of makeup, it was all about natural: nude lips & pale skin. 2014 oscars red carpet olivia wilde 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst Dressed2014 oscars red carpet 2 2014 Oscars Red Carpet.

Best & Worst DressedAnne Hathaway is one lady I’m not always so keen on fashion wise, but this year against most people’s dislike in her armor chest dress – I liked it. It had slightly more edge and overall looked classy and pretty. Emma Watson kept it classy and chic and Jennifer Garner looked beautiful as always in the trend of the night. But those platform shoes!!! Hideous. ann hathaway 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst Dressedemma watson 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet.

Well, I’m not sure about the worst pre se, except Liza Minelli maybe. Once a drama queen always a drama queen. Everyone was sold on her look. Not me. What in the name of God is up with the blue hair? Oh… I get it. She wanted to color coordinate with that cobalt blue thing. I mean dress. Jumpsuit. Whatever. Hobbit alert. The thing is that silk satin fabric does not photograph well at all. It rarely looks great on 6ft tall skinny models. I guess if anyone could have pulled it off, that would have been Liza. Or maybe she just needed a mirror. And a bra. liza minelli 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedThe rest of the ladies were OK, not necessarily worst. Julia Roberts looked great – hair and makeup, and even the dress is OK on her. Frankly I don’t like the fabric, it looks like cheap lace, too thick, too stiff, a bit too boxy from the waist down. julia roberts 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedAnna Kendrick. First of all kudos for choosing a black, edgier style. Didn’t quite nail it, but it’s only the 1st time. anna kendrick 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst DressedMargot Robbie looked like crap. She’s probably doing the dark hair for a movie role (thank God) but that dress looked hidious on her. The back was pretty interesting, but the front looked square, dull, unfitted and I don’t know… I like her more as a blonde. margot robbie 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet.

We love them all, but there’s no show without a few misses, right? So there you have it. lady gaga 2014 oscars red carpet 2014 Oscars Red Carpet.

  1. Well, I like the colour of Lupita’s dress but my personal Oscar goes to Camilla Alves.
    And my ‘winners’ are also: Angelina, Cate Blanchett, Kate Hudson.
    The Golden Raspberry – Julia Roberts, please forgive me !

  2. loved portia de rossi’s! i would say your faves are all my faves (except I wasn’t too impressed with jada pinkett…felt a bit tired and old to me, but it wasn’t BAD!) And I TOTALLY agree w/ the backward necklace thing on JLaw…what the heck? who would tell her to do the same thing…at the same awards show… again?! stylist fired! haha ;)
