This year, we were distinctly underwhelmed! It seems like there was a sea of pale, unsparkly gowns that failed to flatter and not enough colours, glitz and Hollywood glamour! In fact, this year some of the best dressed winners were the men! So without further ado, here are the Oscars 2013 Red Carpet Hits & Misses…..plus a couple of the usual undecided….
What the HECK is this cream puff non-descript gown doing on such a young, pretty talented girl? Jennifer Lawrence (winner, best actress) looks pale, washed out, and distinctly lacking sparkle. We’re getting bored of seeing this same colour on her now. She needs some brights in her life!
I get angry when people get on Kristin Stewart’s case all the time. She’s actually a great actress (Panic Room), and if she looks a bit moody, she can’t help that….it’s her natural features and there’s nobody out there who smiles all the time! Plus, it takes 2 to cheat and I defy anyone to say hand on heart that they haven’t made a mistake that has hurt someone they love at some point. I hate cheaters though….but I also hate that she got ALL of the blame. Anyway…..not a Twilight fan, but I do think this girl gets ripped on too much. However, in this dress….she kinda deserves it. It doesn’t fit her properly around the boobs, the colour makes her look truly undead and it just does nothing for her. At least she’s smiling though.
Halle Berry – you are on my Shit list. I hate this Grecian column dress, I hate that your boobs are out(ish) and I hate your hair. She always seems to think hooker wear featuring her long legs, boobs or backside will win her the day. It doesn’t work, Catwoman. Sorry.
Speaking of Catwoman……Oh, Anne Hathaway (winner, best supporting actress) you have let me down so badly with this dress! The colour is awful (what is it with white, Ivory, pale gowns at the moment??). This makes you look anorexic, boyish and pale as anything. Plus it has funny almost nipple sticky out stitches around the breast area!
Loving the jewellery and hair though.
The mutton has landed. Nicole Kidman…usually so perfectly styled, looks like she has just stepped out of a Jackie Collins novel. Fail.
And the Worst dressed Oscar goes to….
Helena Bonham Carter – who else?!
Mad hair – check. Black gown – check. Thank god we can always rely on Helena to get it wrong and turn up looking like a sack of shite.
Pop! That’s what we like – some colour and Hollywood Glamour. Reece Witherspoon absolutely nails it in this fantastic gown, with gorgeous 1950s inspired hair and sparkling jewels.
Curvy and gorgeous! Love the dress, hair, make up and the fact that Adele blows someone like Skinny Anne Hathaway clean off the red carpet!
Jessica Chastain wows again….I am even forgiving the pale colour because with her colouring, it works perfectly! The hair and lips set this dress off a treat…..Jessica is definitely one to watch in the style stakes.
Jennifer Hudson looks just fantastic in this gorgeous blue gown. The clutch matches perfectly, the sleek hair is lovely and glam, and we love the big rock on her finger!
Sandy looks so pretty in this gorgeous gown. Her hair looks gorgeous swept to one side, the bag compliments the outfit perfectly and the firm fitting gown shows off Sandy’s still amazing figure. Love it!
And the best dressed Oscar award goes to…..
Is it orange? Is it red? Don’t know, don’t care! Jen provides some much needed colour, along with super cute hair and in-love-glow. The accessories are all perfect and she shines and shimmers in this fantastic gown. Definitely my favourite!
Joseph Gordon Levitt Bradley Cooper Chris Pine
Bebonair, stylish, gorgeous….these lovely lads were rocking the red carpet in style!
Best Dressed Couple
Jennifer Garner & Ben Afflect – still so in love, still looking amazing together!
And finally……underwhelmed & undecided:
Is it Bridget Nielsen? Charlize Theron? I don’t know…..and I also know about the pointy white outfit either. Usually she looks amazing, but here she looks a little butch and unfeminine. We love the hair, but if you are going to go that short you need to team it with something that accentuates your femininity, not this androgynous monochrome blah drabble dress. She gets no awards from this Blog!
