June Squibb In Tadashi Shoji – Oscars 2014

June Squibb was in great spirits at the 2014 Oscars at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre tonight (March 2).

The ‘Nebraska’ actress, nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, wore a custom, emerald green, beaded dress by Tadashi Shoji and clutch by Swarovski.

I would have much preferred to see her in a proper gown instead of a jacket/gown combo as nominee for the most prestigious prize in the American film industry.

And, while the colour is absolutely gorgeous, the matching bag AND earring is a whole lot of it.

Nitpicking aside, June has never claimed to be a fashion plate and looks incredible for being 84-years-old. Most importantly she’s having a great time.

Chrissy Teigen In Monique Lhuillier – Oscars 2014

Chrissy Teigen made an out-of-character choice on the red carpet at the 2014 Oscars this evening (March 2).

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covergirl and newlywed wore a voluminous gown from Monique Lhullier Fall 2014 paired with a clutch and shoes by Jimmy Choo and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

We’re used to seeing Chrissy in uber-sexy, slinky gowns and she stepped out of her comfort zone while delivering a major fashion moment. The abstract print and pockets make this dress feel incredibly modern even though the cut reads couture.

Chrissy made a smart call not overwhelming the look with jewelry; the earrings are just enough to add a touch of glamour while letting the dress do most of the talking.

The tousled, swept back hair also adds to the modernity of the look.

I absolutely loved seeing Chrissy embrace a more contemporary type of sexy. How about you?

Maria Menounos In Johanna Johnson – Oscars 2014

Maria Menounos arrived at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre this evening (March 2) for the 2014 Oscars wearing a white, beaded gown by Australian designer Johanna Johnson paired with an Ashlyn’d clutch

The actress and TV presenter’s dress skews a bit bridal, which is unsurprising since the designer designs wedding gowns in addition to eveningwear. However, the messy updo keeps her from looking like she is ready to walk down the aisle.

The crystal accents on the waist and shoulders as well as the beading add that something special that you look for in an Oscars gown and a daringly low back (not pictured) keeps things sexy.

Brooke Anderson In David Meister – Oscars 2014

Brooke Anderson In David Meister - Oscars 2014

The first to arrive on the red carpet for the 2014 Oscars red carpet at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre tonight (March 2) were none other than the television hosts.

Entertainment Tonight correspondent Brooke Anderson arrived wearing a cobalt blue, one-shoulder, lace David Meister gown. She accessorized with a Tasha box clutch, Dior shoes and oversized earrings by XIV KARATS.

Cobalt blue has been wildly popular lately placing Brooke right on trend. Otherwise the dress is only so-so. The ruching in the midsection and lackluster cut makes her look more like she’s heading to prom than the Oscars and the earring doesn’t pair well.

We know you’re working but step it up a notch. This is the Oscars!

Lena Headey In Jenny Packham – 2014 SAG Awards

Lena Headey In Jenny Packham - 2014 SAG Awards

Lena Headey made an impression on the red carpet at the 2014 SAG Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium on Saturday (January 18) in Los Angeles.

The ‘Game of Thrones’ actress wore a bold dress from Jenny Packham Spring 2014 with navy, open toe shoes by Ferragamo.

I expect that this dress will be polarizing but I love it. The sheen of the material, the unusual color combination, the halter neckline, the pussy bow, the stripes running in different directions – it’s all working for me. I only wish that we got to see the dress in motion to get the full impact of the design, like on the runway.

The dress is busy so a simple topknot was a great choice.

I think Lena’s sartorial risk paid off. Do you?

Helen Mirren In Escada – 2014 SAG Awards

Helen Mirren In Escada - 2014 SAG Awards

Dame Helen Mirren showed up women half her age at the 2014 SAG Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium on Saturday (January 18) in Los Angeles.

The ‘Phil Spector’ actress, who won for Outstanding Actress in a film or miniseries, wore an exquisite Escada Pre-Fall 2014 gown with a Jimmy Choo clutch, Dolce and Gabbana shoes and Neil Lane jewelry.

Helen has mastered the art of looking both seductive and age appropriate, which is no small feat at the age of 68. The incredibly unique beading and embroidery is of course the highlight of the gown but the wide sash, voluminous skirt and illusion sleeves all contribute to the perfection.

Slicked back hair, which has been trending this season, shows off Helen’s black and gold chandelier earrings and a red lip pulls the whole thing together.

Dame Helen looked positively regal. Another best-dressed nominee.
