Last night for the 85th Annual Oscars the Red Carpet brought the glamour as it is usually does but I found myself loving the column style dresses the most. Reminiscent of old Hollywood, many of the actresses dressed in gowns that sparkled and shimmered with jewels and sequins while others stood out in rich jewel toned pieces. Hair and makeup also reflected this era with the large waves and strong side parts or the softly pulled back chignons.
I must say I'm more drawn to these looks probably because they're very similar to the look that I am doing at my wedding. Think Veronica Lake, Rita Hayworth and Lauren Bacall.
Jessica Castain was my favorite of the evening, glowing in this Armani Prive gown with Harry Winston jewels and Christian Louboutin heels. She said she chose it because, "It's a very 'Happy Birthday Mr. President.' It reminds me of old Hollywood glamour."
Reese Witherspoon is my runner up, she was so gorgeous in this cobalt blue gown by Louis Vuitton. The jewels were Louis Vuitton as well. Her hair was the best accessory to the outfit with the gorgeous old Hollywood waves, which she attributes to just giving birth?! I have to admit, she did look fuller than usual but I had no idea it was because she just gave birth! She looks amazing!
Stacy Keilbler is also among my favorite top three, she's so stunning in this gown by Naeem Khan and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. I absolutely love the lines of the gown, doesn't it look like Art Deco architecture?
Other beautiful stars that were on my favorites list are:
Amanda Seyfried in an Alexander McQueen gown, Roger Vivier shoes, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
Naomi Watts is wore an Armani Prive dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, Roger Vivier bag, and Neil Lane jewels.
Charlize Theron is wore a Christian Dior Haute Couture dress, Roger Vivier shoes, and Harry Winston jewelry.
Jennifer Lawrence who one Best Actress (congrats) wore a Dior Haute Couture dress, Chopard jewels, a Roger Vivier clutch, and Brian Atwood shoes.
Zoe Saldana in an Alexis Mabille Couture dress, Neil Lane jewelry, Roger Vivier shoes, and a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch.
