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.
Last night the famous Academy Awards were held at the Kodak Teather for the 83rd time. This means that it was another occasion, the peak of this year for celebrities to shine on the red carpet. Generally, there wasn’t any dress which left people in big awe (either in a good or bad way). Most of them looked fine and glamorous. Honestly, in terms of dress choices I liked the Golden Globes better. Also, I decided to do this post the way I did it for the Golden Globes to show you what I liked. I did not make any top ( I hate tops of best/worst dressed) because I don’t really see their purpose. You can either like or hate a dress, but it’s your own personal opinion. The funny thing is that I have seen a lot of these dresses presented below (such as Cate’s Givenchy dress) placed on the best-dressed list on some blogs and on the worst-dressed list on others. My choices are randomly shown to you. There were a lot of dresses in pale colors but also in red – among the red ones, Sandra’s was the only one I found eye-catching. Cate Blanchett’s gown was very interesting. I liked the way the angular sharp-edged design of the upper part of the dress was in contrast with the rest of it which was feminine. (more…)
Not anyone wears a Bottega Veneta dress. Not everyone who wears one can pull it off despite its [sometimes] simple design.
The household names of the movie/music industry choose to wear Bottega Veneta gowns especially on important occasions or photoshoot sessions. I browsed a little bit through last and this year’s events and I made a selection of dresses worn by the celebrities.
