Red Carpet Fashion: 2013 Oscars

Not to be a Debby Downer or anything but I was less than impressed with the Oscars last night. The fact that red carpet interviews ended an hour early on E! and I was forced to watch ABC coverage…that was not fun. And as far as the gowns go, I really was not blown away by anyone. So unfortunately, I did not have a” Gwyneth in Tom Ford moment.” However, there were still some notable looks that deserve some discussing. So let’s get to it.

I typically love everything she wears but that bow on the belt is a little much for me. And I could maybe get past it if it weren’t for those awful 2001 shoes.

Renee, if you’re going for “forgettable” then you killed it.

Stop trying to make Kristen Stewart wear feminine dresses. She hates it, we/I hate it. Why torture ourselves? Put her in Balmain or Balenciaga and let’s move on with our lives. But hey, at least she’s smiling. It’s either she’s really happy to be at the Oscars or the pain killers (don’t those automatically come with crutches?)

Love the color. Love the idea of the back. Hate the back. Loathe the DTM* shoes.

*DTM = dyed to match…something you will never ever find at my wedding

Photobucket Stacy Keibler in Naeem Khan

Gorgeous. Not talking about the hair.

If you just had a baby, the last thing you should wear is a fitted dress that makes your hips look wide. I don’t get it. BUT…the hair is fantastic.

Best Dressed Pick

I liked this better when I watched the red carpet because the skirt portion looked less shiny…but otherwise, she nailed it.

I would love to give this a best dressed pick because she looks great (and for once she’s not wearing black or nude) BUT this dress has already been worn on the red carpet TWICE (see Lea Michele and Freida Pinto) and for that reason alone, I have to pass.

Photobucket Sandra Bullock in Elie Saab Spring 2013 Couture

From the neck down, this is insanely good. But this is how I wore my hair freshman year of high school and it’s really not something I can look over.

Photobucket Nicole Kidman in L’Wren Scott

An example where a shit ton of sparkle can still be boring.

Photobucket Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive

This seems like one of those things you have to see in person to really appreciate. However, Jessica looks stunning and the dress fits her perfectly…but she needs to try a different silhouette. And not one with saggy boobs. Been there. Done that. Not good.

Part 2 with more mediocre dresses coming soon.

  1. Wow – You sure are critical. I think you were a bit harsh in your comments but they are your opinions and you are entitled to have them. I thought most of the ladies looked lovely. I especially loved Stacy Kiebler, Halle Berry, and Sandra Bullock. I don’t always think the hair has to be something uber special. Sandra looked stunning and I think her hair was fine. And i though Jennifer Aniston looked great. Yes, Lea Michele & Frieda Pinto wore something similar but not exactly the same and Jennifer looked way better than both… in my opinion. So we shall agree to disagree.

  2. I think that Naomi Watts absolutely killed it with her dress. Perfection. Not understanding what wasn’t to love about it. I loved Zoe Saldana and Nicole Kidmans dresses but in my opinion it was definitely Naomi. I also loved how Kristin Stewart was a hot mess, and Jennifer Lawrence looked terrific even falling over.
