What I Wore Wednesday: Oscars 2014 Red Carpet

So awards season is officially over and the biggest and the best of all the awards, The Oscars, took place this past weekend. If you didn't know that then seriously who are you? I love the Oscars and probably my favourite part are the dresses. Beautiful people in beautiful gowns, what more can you ask for?

All the major players and papers have named their fashion favourites but who cares what they say this is who I liked best at Oscars 2014!

Normally I am not a fan of flesh coloured dresses but this just was so ethereal, delicate and elegant. Her dress, skin and hair are all sort of the same tone but it just totally shimmers and shines and works for me. Fun fact in the past 10 years 8 of the Best Actress winners have worn white or very pale dresses.

Everything. I love everything. The draping on the gown, that deep sapphire colour, her gorgeous old Hollywood hair--she looks stunning. She just exemplifies what a Best Actress nominee should look like walking down the red carpet.

Again I'm not a fan of deep plunge necklines but she looked amazing. The pale pastel blue totally complemented her skin tone; she just looked radiant. I loved how she kept her accessories simple but elegant and wore arm bands instead of bracelets.

Olivia Wilde, Valentino
There were lots of beautiful bumps on the red carpet last night but my favourite was Olivia Wilde. I love a monochromatic look on the red carpet because to me black and white just screams elegant. She didn't hide her bump and I love that she kept her jewellery black and white too.

I won't say who looked the worst but I will say who was my most disappointing look of the night. I'm sure a lot of people won't agree with me but my least favourite look was:

Margot Robbie, Saint Laurent
I actually really like Margot Robbie; she used to play Donna on my favourite Australian soap Neighbours but I am not liking this look. I don't have any issues with her gown but coupled with her new dark hair, the heavy makeup and dark plum lip it really ages her and does not look good. It is all just far too dark and overwhelming.

Also honourable mention goes out to Jared Leto's gorgeous Mom, Constance; I am in love with her hair and it's how I imagine my hair would be if I ever go grey. Now we know why Jordan Catalano was so hot! Also dishonourable mention to his brother Shannon WTF happened to his face?

Olivia Wilde looks the way I always WISH I looked when I am pregnant. So beautiful!

Melaina25 said...

Lupita's was my least favourite because it so did not suit her, Sandra or Charlize were amoung my favs

Melaina25 said...

I loved Lupita and Kerry Washington. By far my faves!

Melaina25 said...

Oooh the frocks! Definitely more hits than misses this year. Cate Blanchett and Lupita Nyong'o both looked absolutely stunning but I think Kate Hudson might just have been my favourite :-)

Melaina25 said...

Lupita and Cate were my favorite looks! But the dress that Charlize had on OMG loved it.

Melaina25 said...

Loved Lupita and Cate !

You know what.. I'm so lame, I didnt watch! I like your picks though x

Melaina25 said...

Lupita was my favorite look by far.

Melaina25 said...

I couldn't believe Margot Robbie got zero attention on the red carpet considering she's been getting so much attention this year! Although, now seeing the full look, I kind of understand why. Definitely not my favorite look. Thanks for hosting the linkup!

She looked amazing didn't she?

Melaina25 said...

So much prettiness!

Melaina25 said...

She is stunning! I'd love to know what products she uses she has the most beautiful skin.

Melaina25 said...

They are the epitome of Hollywood!

Melaina25 said...

You are right there wasn't anything really kooky.

Melaina25 said...

Of course!

Melaina25 said...

Oh I love it!

Melaina25 said...

The whole look was just overkill for me.

Melaina25 said...

I think she could wear a potato sack and look amazing!

Melaina25 said...

I looked at all the dresses online before I watched the awards :)

Melaina25 said...

Just totally epitome of hollywood glam.

Melaina25 said...

It was amazing!

Melaina25 said...

Me too :)

Melaina25 said...

I didn't like the invisible straps if I'm honest!

Melaina25 said...

I'm just really not a fan of the deep plunge neckline.

Melaina25 said...

Kerry was on my list of faves too!

Melaina25 said...

I didn't like the invisible/clear straps on Charlize's dress if I'm honest.

Melaina25 said...

Right? I looked like a house!

Melaina25 said...

I checked out the dresses online before I watched the show itself.

Melaina25 said...

I totally agree.

Melaina25 said...

I couldn't agree with you more, my fave outfit was Cate Blanchett's and the least favourite was Margot Robbie. I like her more as a blonde, plus that dress made her look ugly...and she's usually gorgeous ! Thanks for commenting on my post, anyway I think you skipped the link to your blog, it's already on my post, if you scroll up the last picture of the post you'll see all the links to the link-ups including yours, of course. I always put a link back, everytime I link up my outfit to link-ups ! Thank you for this opportunity. Hugs

I loved the dresses this year, most of your faves are mine too, although I also loved Kate Hudson in Versace. Agree about Margot Robbie - unrecognisable.

Melaina25 said...

Loved Lupita Nyong'o Prada gown! Lots of gorgeous looks this year. (P.S. sorry I accidentally linked up twice! I deleted the extra one. My bad!)
