One of the most anticipated parts of the Awards season is the red carpet parade, where viewers get to see fashion hits and misses by Hollywood celebrities. When I started this blog, giving my top red carpet picks (in the Golden Globes and Oscars events specifically) became sort of a vow. And now, here I am presenting you my top choices despite my very tight schedule. (I’m sorry if I’ve been MIA for the past weeks, work and school stuff are taking way too much of my time at the moment.) Below are my top 5 in ascending order.
My fifth choice would be this spectacular Alexander McQueen gown worn by Jessica Chastain who’s a Best Suporting Actress nominee for her role in The Help. What I particularly love about this dress are the intricate gold details. It somewhat reminds me of autumn, which kind of gives off a somber vibe.
Delicate, soft garments attract me so much. I am in love with this Givenchy Couture gown donned by Rooney Mara, who definitely made her mark in Hollywood for her performance in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I’m still yet to watch the film (bummer, I know) but basing on the trailer, Mara absolutely deserves to be nominated as Best Actress for her role. Talk about how drastic the changes were in her appearance (I digress). Now her dress would have been impeccable, I think, if it fit well on the waist part.
Oh yes, the top trending topic on Twitter—Angie’s right leg. I’m pretty sure she did that for comedic purposes, posing like that on every picture, even onstage. But then again, minus the leg-baring stunt she pulled, she must be credited for choosing a velvet-y Atelier Versace gown. Scene stealer, I must say—the dress complemented her glowing skin.
Kristen Wiig’s look wasn’t everyone’s favorite, but it’s my top 2 choice. I love nude. It’s refreshing to the eyes, plus it complements almost everyone’s skin. Although, I think, Wiig of the Bridesmaids would have looked more sophisticated with this J. Mendel gown if she pulled her hair up, like a bun or something.
And my top look for the Oscars would be this Maria Lucia Hoha chiffon dress worn by Maria Menounos, a host of Access Hollywood. I told you I’m a sucker for soft thingies! 🙂 Menounos has such a great body, this dress suited her really well.
So those are my top picks. I don’t usually include men as I don’t know any thing about their fashion. Come back next year to see my top red carpet picks! 🙂
