Oscars 2014 Gowns

Before fashion we must talk about Ellen, she was freaking hilarious.  Like laugh out loud, pee your pants hilarious.  Big kudos to whoever made her host.  Did you retweet the most amazing selfie ever?  I contributed to 'breaking Twitter'!  How could you not?!  I just loved her & she has my vote for host again next year.

Now onto all the prettiness of the night!  Let's be honest here, the Oscars are the SuperBowl for the fashion obsessed.  Thankfully last night did not disappoint & there were a lot of people on the winning team.  There were so many gorgeous gowns that it was honestly hard to narrow down my best dressed, not that I did too much narrowing.  There were also a few misses though, one in particular that was just really bad was Pharrell in those Lanvin shorts!  I'm not sure what's worse the shorts or Vivienne Westwood hat?!  I love Pharrell & his performance was amazing, but he's just killing me with his fashion choices of late.  Well, while I try to forget about his bad fashion here is my not so short list of all the amazing fashions from last night.

Giuliana Rancic in Paolo Sebastian
This was the first dress I saw & I fell in love, it was perfection!  I hope everyone saw when she showed off her shoes on the E! pre-show, they were a girl's dream--so sparkly & pretty!
Kristen Bell in Roberto Cavalli
I love the shape of this dress, the construction on the top, & the different textures.  This is a great color & the minimal accessories work really well.
Jessica Biel in Chanel Couture
You can't go wrong with Chanel!  Jessica looked stunning & very ethereal in this.
Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace
To me this screams Hollywood glamour, Kate was the epitome of a movie star in this gown.  However, I do have to say I liked it much better when she took off the the shoulder topper/cape thing to present.

Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab Haute Couture
This looked fabulous on her, the color, the cut, everything!  I also love that she did long sleeves, long sleeve gowns are my favorite.
Naomi Watts in Calvin Klein Collection
Simplicity at it's best, from head to toe this was such a chic look.
Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Reem Acra
I think my favorite part about this one was the bottom, but I loved it all.  I know you may think I'm crazy, but for some reason this reminds me of her wedding dress a little bit.

Chrissy Teigen in Monique Lhuillier
At first I wasn't a huge fan of this, but then the more I thought about it I liked how she went for something different with the pattern, & I loved the cut of the gown, & the pocket detail!
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Couture
She looks perfect & I expected nothing less.  (If I had one small complaint though it was the color, I thought it was too similar to the color of her Oscars 2011 gown).
Camila Alves-McConaughey in Gabriela Cadena
Even though Matthew McConaughey won best actor, his beautifully outfitted wife stole the show from him when they walked the red carpet.  This dress had such gorgeous construction, & was a great color.

Olivia Wilde in Maison Valentino
So pretty!  I couldn't stop gushing all night about how beautiful she looked.  She was glowing & I really loved how she accessorized.
Kerry Washington in Jason Wu
While I loved her dress, I think her hair & makeup was my favorite part of her whole look!
Julia Roberts in Givenchy Haute Couture
I know some people are over peplums, but I'm still loving them, especially this one.  I also really like the lace, & the detailing at the neckline.

Amy Adams in Gucci
Another gown that was so simple, but so gorgeous.  This was such a great color on her.
Lupita Nyong'o in Prada 
I cannot say enough about how much I love this dress!  I have been obsessed with Lupita's style all Award Season & was elated with her decision; the color, the silhouette, everything just looked amazing.
Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen
This dress had gorgeous architecture, & she looked stunning!  I was so happy that she did a little something different with her hair, I feel like a lot of times she just wears it straight, but I loved the curls.

So what did you think of all the fashion?  What did you think of the show?  What did you think of all the winners?!

I thought it was such an amazing show & already cannot wait for next year's!  Here's to hoping Ellen's the host!

  5. I totally agree with all of these. I thought this year's Oscars was the best ever for fashion. I also loved the gown that Idina Menzel wore in her performance.
