It was a wet scene on the red carpet, but glamour prevailed and it was a designers dream.
There were no bad looks this year, only a few boring ones.
Here are my best dressed for 2014.
It seemed this years brief was sheer, and taking on the challenge and winning, not only in the fashion stakes, was our elegant Cate Blanchett wearing Armani Prive`.
Announced as Best Actress for her role in “Blue Jasmine”, Cate took to the stage in an exquisitely beaded with Swarovski crystals, nude toned gown.
Off set perfectly by divine drop earrings, subtle make up and “Veronica Lake” style hair, Cate made history as the first Australian to receive 2 Oscars for Best Actress in a leading role.
Her make up, hair and Robert Procop jewellery were stunning, and seeing the dress on stage I was sold.
In photographs I felt it looked a little blousey and full around the bust.
However, when she escorted the stylish Sidney Poitier onto the stage to present an award, it came into it’s own.
Jolie looked like a diaphanous queen.
Finished to perfection by Harry Winston jewels, what can I say?
What a stunning shape!
The gorgeous gold lace caplet finished the look off beautifully.
And personally I love her purple hair!
She is quirky while being classic and a little retro in her choices.
Always fun to watch.
Kate Hudson was outstanding in silver Atelier Versace.
A plunging neckline and draped caplet were absolutely fabulous.
They showed off her beauteous body faultlessly.
Draped in a figure hugging black silk/satin by Camilla Staerk and jewels by Forevermark, she rocked the red carpet.
I adored the simplicity of her choice.
This was polished perfection, and the headband topped it off. The only thing better than this impeccable gown was her eloquent thank you speech.
Winning an Oscar for best supporting actress for “12 Years A Slave”, Lupita Nyong’o has proven herself throughout this awards season, not only for her brilliant acting, but her sartorial choices.
I can’t wait to see her next move, both on and off the silver screen.Red
I’ll give a special mention to Camila Alves, Matthew McConaughey’s wife, looking sublime in pale pink by Gabriela Cadena and Lorraine Schwartz earrings, Anne Hathaway in black and silver Gucci, and Emma Watson in Vera Wang.
I love the Oscars and the fashion that surrounds them.
Who was your best dressed this year? I would love to know.
