I was expecting to see Cate Blanchett dazzling on the red carpet regardless of her choice in the dress. And of course she did not disappoint. It’s true that after seeing her latest appearances, I thought that she would go for a feminine, ethereal or minimalist look. But perhaps that’s why the excitement tripled when she took over the red carpet in this breath-taking Armani Privé gown. It was quite unexpected and I was pleasantly surprised. Chopard earring, a retro hairstyle and flawless makeup completed the look. She truly knows how to make a lace gown work and not feel overwhelmed by it.
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 designerswere 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!
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:
The award shows keep coming this weekend as we are approaching the very much awaited Academy Awards! Last night, it was time for the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards and many household names of the film industry attended the event. For me, best dressed were without a doubt Chinese actresses, Ni Ni, and Kerry Washington, both in Giambattista Valli outfits. Check out more outfits below:
I was very happy to see Kerry Washington in this lovely Oscar de la Rentaspring 2013 dress. Apparently, she is quite fond of this style, as I immediately remembered that gorgeous Giles dress she wore at the London premiere of Quentin Tarantino’s new movie “Django Unchained”. Kerry opted for a simple look, replacing the bejeweled butterfly belt with a less heavy one. Freida Pinto and Halle Berry attended the awards also. See their looks below: (more…)
