Emily Kielthy delves into the best of the Oscars fashion.
Every year, cialis the Oscars provide us all with something wild and glamorous to talk about. We get hooked on the speeches, medicine the winners and –most importantly for us girls – the dresses. These give us our inspiration for all the formal events we may attend this year, recipe an opportunity to critique what we can’t afford and a glimpse into the fun-filled lives of the stars of the selfie that has taken over Twitter. This article is here to give you a play-by-play of this year’s best dressed. Making the cut are the likes of Emma Watson, Angelina Jolie and Sandra Bullock, as well as some spectacularly surprising contenders such as Bette Midler.
Fair is fair – let’s start with the winner. Cate Blancett Led the way in the trend of fabulous nude dresses this year. The Australian actress stepped out onto the scene in a nude, ball gown covered in pearls and Swarovski crystals by Armani Prive as an illusion piece. The full dress had a certain delicate femininity to it as the chiffon material was softly draped over her statuesque frame. This dress represents the glamour associated with being an Oscar winner.
Emma Watson showed herself off as a young, edgy and seductive starlet with a sophisticated elegance. Her sparkling, black, Vera Wang gown was matched perfectly with an assortment of intricate rings, shocking red lipstick and a messy, casual hair style for the ultimate classic, but young, look. The English Rose represents the future of Hollywood acting, and the next generation of style icons. Her presenting debut of the award for special effects displayed her charming personality and stunning ensemble.
There has been a lot of scepticism over the glittering Elie Saab gown brought to life by Angelina Jolie. Ultimately, making an impact is about some people loving it and others hating it, and that’s certainly what this Hollywood Beauty did for the Oscars. By side of Brad Pitt, this dynamic couple can’t dress badly in my eyes. They have an eternal, timeless sense of style. Angelina’s dress portrayed this perfectly, with the crystals and sparkles bringing us back to old Hollywood fashion. This shows that she doesn’t need her usual black colours to be the classiest at an event.
Performing at this year’s Oscars for the first time ever was the fabulous Ms Bette Midler. As she walked the red carpet before hand, I honestly had no idea why I had never thought of her as a style inspiration before. She stood out this year with her red floral gown and her beautifully fresh face. Her custom dress, by Reem Acra, was the welcome to spring that we all need. The intricate detail of the gown included bright red flowers on flowing, nude fabric, clinging beautifully to a cream, silk under layer. The captivating colour was a spectacular match for her smile and her powerful voice. The 68 year old looked perhaps the most graceful and vibrant for her age at this year’s academy awards.
Sandra Bullock was unforgettable at this year’s Oscars, winning my award for most elegant actress. Her navy Alexander McQueen gown matched Angelina Jolie’s in timelessness. The pure, silk fabric clung to her body perfectly, giving her a feminine and sophisticated silhouette. The only detail of this simple, flawless piece was a cross of loosely pleated fabric at the side on her waist for an hourglass figure. The actress combined with the dress made for a statuesque, classic look of pure, simple, undeniable glamour.
The sexiest Oscars gown this year goes to Kate Hudson, for her Jessica Rabbit-like seductive look. Her long, trailing silver gown had a deep, plunging neckline and a regal finish. What made the look most original was the cape that framed the scooped back on the dress and draped around her shoulders for a powerful statement ensemble. This Atelier Versace number showed us what the Oscars are all about.
Lupita Nyong’o made her princess debut this year in a sweet Nairobian blue princess gown. The delicate pleats trailed along the red carpet after her and the deep plunge of the neckline complimented her physic beautifully. She accessorized her flowing gown with a diamond-studded headband and a stunning smile, for a look that showed fun, innocence and wonder.
It’s a sure thing that most of these looks will go down in the history of the Oscars. Future years will have a lot to live up to, and the women of the world will have a lot to aspire to for all their formal wear.
