50 Shades of Blush: Oscars 2013




The Oscars are without a doubt the biggest event in Hollywood. So I always expect the stars to bring it on the red carpet. They did not disappoint. Blush tones were the trend of the night with some shades of red and blue. I was thrilled to see very little black [you know I love black, but I like to see color for the Oscars! It’s almost spring, after all :), and I think there were some amazing beauty moments as well as fashion moments.

Let’s start, of course, with the most fabulous looks from the night.

Jennifer Lawrence_Oscars

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture. I really love the range of looks she’s worn over the awards season, with red at the Globes, navy at the SAGs and this cream color for the Oscars. All Dior, but we’ve seen a wide range of amazing colors on her. And I love her hair! She can do no wrong.

Jennifer Aniston_Oscars

Jennifer Aniston in Valentino. Jen is getting a lot of flack for being too safe, too boring, but let’s remember how often Jen wears black on a carpet. This look is amazing on her! She looks great in red and I actually really like her hair down and flowing. She is known for her gorgeous hair, after all!

Jessica Chastain_Oscars

Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive. Before Naomi Watts showed up, Jessica Chastain was 100% going to be my best dressed star. It’s super close. I love this color on her and her hair and makeup, wow! I love the sparkle and the shape is so perfect for her body.

Charlize Theron_Oscars

Charlize Theron in Dior. She is another start that can do no wrong for me, but she is stunning in Dior. What I love most, though, is how she’s rocking her short hair. Pixie cuts are SO HARD to pull off but she does it so extraordinarily well. Wow.

Kerry Washington_Oscars

Kerry Washington in Miu Miu. I love the jewels and the coral/orange/red shade of this dress. So fabulous! If her hair was up, it would have been better, but I still love.

Nicole Kidman_Oscars

Nicole Kidman in L’Wren Scott. I wont’ say I’m blown away by Nicole’s look, but I just have to give her props because it’s so much better than what she’s been wearing lately. I do like her hair and her skin looks amazing.

Stacy Keibler_Oscars

Stacy Keibler in Naeem Khan. I chose this as a best dressed because it’s so unique and interesting! I think a lot of people will think it’s a miss, but I really like it! George could use a shave, though 😉


Adele in Jenny Packham. Beautiful, sparkly, figure-flattering. Whoever does her makeup needs to move to America and be my personal makeup artist, please! I hope she wins for Skyfall!

Jennifer Garner_Oscars

Jennifer Garner in Gucci. I absolutely love this wine color on Jen! The necklace is a great accessory. What’s really amazing about this dress is the back! Great choice!


Amy Adams_Oscars

Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta. You gotta love a girl in a princess dress. I don’t normally love the princess dress, but Amy is rocking it! I love the cool bluish/gray on her with her hair color!

Naomi Watts_Oscars

Naomi Watts in Armani Prive. Wow, is all I can say. The neckline is amazing, not to mention the head to toe sparkle and the gorgeous shade of gray. She is so pretty it’s not even fair.

Reese Witherspoon_Oscars

Reese Witherspoon in Louis Vuitton. My initial thoughts on this dress were that it doesn’t fit her properly and doesn’t do her justice. But I really grew to love this look while she was doing her interviews. Cobalt is my favorite color right now, and she rocks it! The shape is very flattering, especially given that she just had a baby! And her hair officially wins best hair of the night! Gorgeous!

Octavia Spencer_Oscars

Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji. Gorgeous! I love this color and the way it’s cut is so stunning on her!

There were a couple of looks that I am just so undecided on! I need your help figuring out if I like them!

Jennifer Hudson_Oscars

Jennifer Hudson in Robert Cavalli. At first I kind of hated this dress, but now I’m just confused. I like the color of the dress, the sparkle, the shape, but I really don’t like her shoe color choice and her hair.

Halle Berry_Oscars

Halle Berry in Versace. Another dress I am torn about! I like the structure and the sleeves. And the sparkle. But maybe the stripes are just too busy? What do you think?

Sandra Bullock_Oscars

Sandra Bullock in Elie Saab. It’s a very safe choice and I’m not wowed by it, but I do think she looks pretty. Just not a wow moment.

Kristen Stewart_Oscars

Kristen Stewart in Reem Acra. She is very on trend with the blush tones, but I just can’t decide if I think she looks good or sloppy. Her hair is looking better than usual [meaning she brushed it] but I’m pretty sick of her wearing clothing that looks like lingerie. But it’s a pretty dress. Torn!

And now, for the worst. There actually weren’t many looks that I didn’t dig tonight. But there were a few that just weren’t working.

Zoe Saldana_Oscars

Zoe Saldana in Alexis Mabille. Ugh! I really hate to say this because I like some of the dress. I love the beautiful detail on the top, but I hate the belt with the big stupid bow and I’m not a fan of the layering at the bottom. But she’s so pretty.

Anne Hathaway_Oscars

Anne Hathaway in Prada. I don’t even know where to begin. I think this will go down in history as an all-time worst dressed look. We all know Anne is about to win an Oscar and she chooses THIS dress? It’s dull, it’s wrinkly, it washes her out. Not to mention the fact that she needs to attend to her – ahem – girls. Such a disappointment.

Melissa McCarthy_Oscvars

Melissa McCarthy in David Meester. I love Melissa McCarthy and I actually love this dress, but it’s not tailored very well at all. It seems like the ruching is in the wrong place and the bust looks weird. I am kind of feeling her big hair though!

Amanda Seyfried_Oscars

Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen. This was difficult because I actually like the color of the dress and the cool print, but I hate the keyhole neck. It feels too dated, not fresh enough!

Agree or disagree? I’m sad that awards season is over, but it has been a great one and I have had a ball blogging about all of the best and worst celebrity looks!

  1. I agree with you on pretty much everything! I loved that there were so many gorgeous gowns out there! And I’m definitely not on the fence about Halle Berry – she’s had a lot of tasteless things going on this awards season, and while the shoulders and sleeves were nice on this one, it looked like something Reba would have worn in the 90s. Not. Good.
    What about the guys? I have to say, Robert Downey Jr was looking reeeally nice in black on black on black. Nice to not have the norm 🙂 Oh, and the spats that Channing Tatum wore for the dance number were…. weird.
