Hello everybody! I hope you all had a magic Christmas! Before putting an end to this year, it’s time to recap some of the most thrilling red-carpet appearances of 2013. Although I haven’t wrote about many of them as I gave up covering events, I have always kept an eye on the dresses these ladies have worn thorughout the year.

The most beloved designers were Elie Saab and Christian Dior. If I were to chose between them I’d go with Elie Saab mostly because of consistency. Although Dior has provided some beautiful gowns for the red carpet, I cannot get over the downturn it made in the last months. And this is how I get to the most disappointing brands lead also by Dior. The latest collections have not fulfilled my expectations and have sadly managed to transform Marion Cotillard from a red-carpet diva into a mediocre, if not disastrous, appearance.

Apart from the award ceremonies, a lot of beautiful gowns were delivered during promotional tours. I have included in this top some photocalls and TV shows as well. Enjoy!

Carey Mulligan, “Great Gatsby” Premiere

Oh, I tried so much to hold back from updating on the Cannes Film Festival because I know it’s an  endless process, but I just can’t help it!

So, I have decided that, at least, I am going to write about my favorite look of the night (or some of my favorites). “The Great Gatsby” premiere which was held at the Lumiere Theatre marked the opening ceremony of the  the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival. The starts of the movie, Carey Mulligan together with Leonardo Dicaprio, Tobey Maguire and director Baz Luhrmann attended the event as many other guests did: Nicole Kidman (in Christian Dior), Freida Pinto (in Gucci), Florence Welch (in Miu Miu), Vahina Giocante ( in Elie Saab), Lana del Rey, Cara Delevingne (in Burberry) etc.

After wearing a Balenciaga look for the photocall look earlier in the day, Carey followed the same trend of minimalism and simplicity donning a beautiful Christian Dior gown. Love it!

The Martin Grant Coats, Fall 2013

Martin Grant‘s fall 2013 coats have impressed me deeply! Oh, well, I am such a fool for minimalism, I just can’t stand a chance in front of a well-executed collection. The Australian designer’s high quality coats were, from my point of view, the apex of this collection. Timeless silhouettes portrayed the ideal French charm while the simple tailoring denoted sheer elegance and functionality in the same time. Although the designer approaches very geometrical and sharp aesthetics, he manages to give the audience a feminine and truly captivating collection.

This is it! The 2013 Academy Awards took place last night at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. As expected, there were a lot of actresses who walked the red carpet. Among my favorites was probably Naomi Watts in Giorgio Armani, who easily managed to pull off that look. I also liked Alicia Vikander & Sandra Bullock, both in Elie Saab. Jessica Chastain wore a simple yet very classy and sophisticated design by Armani Privé. I would also add on this list Charlize Theron‘s Dior gown and Anne Hathaway‘s Prada dress. See all the looks below:
