If you didn’t know it already, my favorite season is red carpet season and the 87th Annual Academy Awards marked the end of this year’s award season. I mean, I think the next big award show is the MTV Movie Awards right? But we won’t be seeing Oscar dresses on that red carpet (Although I’m quite excited to see who’s look will be making everyone talk).
Anyways, I chose my top 5 looks of the night and let me tell you, it was not an easy choice. Out of all the celebs that walked that Oscar red carpet, I flagged about 13 dresses and it was hard to narrow it down.
Here’s a little disclaimer before I get started: I am in no way a fashion guru and if I were to be honest I don’t know enough to tell the difference between the fashion designers’ styles. So again, these are just my opinions and what I find most appealing to my eye. I like what I like, you like what you like, so feel free to disagree with me, agree with me, whatever you’d like to do.
Oh and before I move forward, I also did a VLOG version of this post! I’m not too proud of it (I think I sounded boring), but you can check that out here:
WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, my top 5 looks of the night:
#5 Katie Cassidy
Katie Cassidy has always been one of my favorite fashionistas and she blew me away on the Oscars red carpet! I was a bit surprised to see her on the red carpet. Don’t get me wrong, I love her and I’m proud of her success with Arrow. With that being said, her look stood out to me more than some of the nominees. She wore a sheer, silver gown by Julien MacDonald and when I saw the pictures I thought she looked so beautiful. It was a different dress with the detail, but the sleeves, the low cut, the off the shoulder look..everything was perfect.
#4 Anna Kendrick
The Into the Woods actress was one of the firsts to walk the red carpet at the 2015 Oscars, and while I may be biased because I absolutely adore Anna Kendrick, she gets the #4 spot on my best dressed list. When I first saw her step out on that red carpet, that custom coral Thakoon gown stole my heart. My first thought: “Is it too early to say Anna Kendrick gets best dressed of the night?” I guess it was too early, but she is still made my list. I mean, a lot of people probably were saying it’s too simple but I loved it anyway. The coral color screamed spring time and the diamond neck piece that held it together was absolutely beautiful. The updo and makeup complimented the whole look as well! She’s a princess 🙂
#3 Jennifer Lopez
Now I saw a lot of people had some negative and differing opinion’s about J. Lo’s look, but I thought her nude Elie Saab gown was beautiful! J. Lo never ages and she rocked that red carpet and flaunted what she got. Haters gonna hate, but she could care less. I also loved the addition of the belt to accent the waist and the detail of the sequins and don’t even get me started on the train. It was huge, but it was beautiful and it made her look like the belle of the ball! Now I know, Robert Duvall’s wife was practically wearing the same dress in a peach color (and without the belt), and don’t get me wrong, she looked beautiful too, but J. Lo stood out more to me. She strutted down the red carpet in true J. Lo style, confident and fierce.
#2 Rosamund Pike
There were a lot of red dresses among this year’s red carpet and Rosamund Pike’s Givenchy dress was my favorite! It was a strapless, lace gown that had a slit down the middle, and the whole thing reminded me of a rose. The little belt/cinched waist accentuated her figure and she looks so good considering she had a baby back in December! If you looked at the gown from the back, the top part was sort of like a corset and I thought that was really beautiful as well. Random fact: Gone Girl was the only nominated movie I had watched!
#1 Emma Stone
If you don’t love Emma Stone, what is wrong with you? No, but really, Emma Stone always looks so good on the red carpet and her in this Elie Saab dress landed her at my number 1 spot on this list. Normally, I’m not a fan of green/yellow dresses, but this color, chartreuse?, was absolutely beautiful on her skin tone. The beading flowing down from the top to the bottom of the gown was different for me, but I LOVED IT. I also loved that it had sleeves and all, but then Emma was a bit daring with the leg slit and the backless portion. It was both sexy and sophisticated. And of course the tinted lip color added to the whole look. She was stunning and that is all.
Honorable mentions. Remember when I said I flagged about 13 looks? Well some of the other actresses that caught my eye included:
– Dakota Johnson
– Jenna Dewan-Tatum
– Reese Witherspoon
– America Ferrera
– Jennifer Hudson
– Jennifer Aniston
And a shoutout to all the handsome men in their tailored suits. These men were my favorite of the night looking so dapper and suave:
– Chris Pine in Georgio Armani
– Adam Levine in Georgio Armani
– Ansel Elgort in Prada
– Miles Teller in Prada
– Josh Hutcherson in Ermenegildo Zegna Couture
– Neil Patrick Harris in Brunello Cucinelli
And there you have it! My top looks of the 2015 Oscars! What were your favorites of the night?
