Last night was the biggest award event of the year ; it was the Oscars ! There is always so much anticipation over who will win what but another question that is on everyones minds is ‘Who will .. be wearing’ and last night we finally got to see all the celebs dressed to perfection. There was a lot of winners but still a lot of sinners. So lets stay positive first here is my favorite 3 looks of the night. What do you think ? Who was your favorite of the night ?

My first favorite is Jessica Chastain wearing Alexander McQueen. I love this dress ! Its so beautifully designed with its gold hand-embroidered bodice and design. One of the things i love the most about this look is that i think the black and gold colours of the dress go perfect with her red hair its just amazing. The attention of this look is obviously on the very detailed dress so Jessica has kept the accessories to a minimum with simple bangles and drop earrings.
Another one of my favorites is Michelle Williams wearing Louis Vuitton. I just love Michelle Williams she dresses so ladylike but with a modern twist which suits her so well. This coral-red gown has a peplum waist with a red band and silver bow giving it that cute side. It also has a lovely ruffling skirt which is just beautiful. Her hair and makeup has been done so neat and simple but perfect for the dress. She has also kept to a simple silver chain necklace and pink clutch to add more to the look but it is keeping it just right.
And Finally last but not least is Milla Jovovich wearing Elie Saab. 2 words : Hollywood Glamour , This is glamorous; Perfect sweeped back brunette hair, red lipstick , silver jewelery and a simple but stunning white gown. I don’t even know what to say its just gorgeous.
The third letter of my A-Z of fashion is of course C which is for Couture. It may not be a need to us but if we never had couture then there would be a huge gap in the fashion world. Couture which is otherwise known as Haute Couture which is french for high dressmaking as its high quality. A list of designers release a haute couture line including Christian Dior, Elie Saab ( My Personal Favorite) , Valentino etc . Without couture some of those A-list stars would not have wore those show-stopping pieces at the Oscars ! P.S Below is a dress from the Givenchy Spring 2011 Couture Collection .

After seeing so many Elie Saab designs at Oscars and other big glitzy award shows i have been really interested in the designs. I have found the collection for this season’s couture which i just love. Its just so feminine and soft and now I can add Elie Saab to one of my favorite designers because his designs are just amazing ! Below i have selected some of my favorite looks from the collection,the rest can be found at Style.com.

Sorry for the lateness in this post! I have put together 4 of my favorite looks from the ceremony. The first is Mila Kunis who looked amazing in this Elie Saab haute couture dress, Mila also looked amazing at the Golden Globes so maybe she is a future style icon. Scarlett Johansson also looked fab in this gorgeous Raspberry colored lace Dolce & Gabbana gown aswell as Jennifer Lawrence who was wearing a fiery red Calvin Klein number. Is it just me or does she look so much like Stephanie Pratt from The Hills ? And to complete the list the wonderful Halle Berry who stole the show in this dazzling Marchesa gown.
Who do you think was the Best Dressed ?
P.S I wont bother do a worst dressed post as there wasn’t actually that many worst dressed.

You just can’t have a best dressed list without a Worst dressed list! To follow up to my last post here is a look back at some of the worst dressed at past Oscar Awards. The first one on the list is probably the most memorable Oscar outfit the swan dress worn by Bjork. She wore it to the 2001 award ceremony but maybe it would have looked better at this years awards if it was in Black – Black swan Ha lol ! Another unusual ensemble was Uma Thurman at the 2004 awards with this weird white dress and Cher also added to the unusualness back in 2000 with this disco like sequined outfit. To complete the list we have Diane Keaton in a very masculine tuxedo.

As the oscars are coming up this weekend its time to look back at previous Oscar Awards to see who made the best dressed list. The first one on the list is Carey Mulligan who also made the Best dressed of 2010 list in this gorgeous detailed Prada dress at the 2010 Oscars and Keira Knightley also makes the list when she wore this stunning Vera Wang gown back at the 2006 Oscars. Katherine Heigl adds to the list as she oozes with Hollywood Glamour in this very glam Red Escada gown and to finish the list of course we have the fabulous Sandra Bullock who looks dazzling in this metallic Marchesa gown.
Who is your favourite ?
