Which Was Your Favourite Kerry Washington 2014 Awards Season Look?

Which Was Your Favourite Kerry Washington 2014 Awards Season Look

Kerry Washington was very much part of awards season, both as a presenter at many of the major events, and as a nominee for a SAG Award and Golden Globe Award for her performance in ‘Scandal’.

With so many celebs expecting this year, maternity style is taking centre stage on the red carpet right now.

While Olivia Wilde has been knocking it out of the fashion ballpark, going from fitted in Gucci to bump-concealing in Valentino, Kerry’s style has in some cases been frankly disappointing and not on a par with the fashionista we all know and love.

She started awards season glowing in Balenciaga at the Golden Globe Awards, then gorgeous at the SAG Awards nominees party, but at the main event she left me baffled by her Prada choice. It is one thing to show off your bump proudly, but on this occasion the look was highly unflattering.

An awkward yet pretty Oscar de la Renta dress followed, with a beautiful Thakoon custom look at the NAACP Image Awards, and as pretty as the Jason Wu was at the Oscars, the creases took the sheen off this look.

My favourite, looking back, was the Balenciaga, followed by the Thakoon.

Which Was Your Favourite Jennifer Lawrence 2014 Awards Season Look?

Which Was Your Favourite Jennifer Lawrence 2014 Awards Season Look

Looking back on Jennifer Lawrence’s awards season, my reaction was “was that it?”

We expected a Dior fest, but it just dawned on me that she only attended four events.

Starting with the much-ridiculed Golden Globes Couture gown (which I found myself warming to), she then moved on to my favourite, her SAG Awards Couture gown, before ending with a so-so Couture gown at the Oscars and a sparkling Tom Ford number at the Vanity Fair party.

Despite the short run, was it better than last season?

I would say it’s six of one and half a dozen of the other; however, none of these looks comes close to her Oscars Dior Couture gown of 2013.

Which Was Your Favourite Sandra Bullock 2014 Awards Season Look?

Which Was Your Favourite Sandra Bullock 2014 Awards Season Look

Sandra Bullock was also one of our ones to watch during awards season following an epic run promoting ‘Gravity’. From the comments, I get the feeling she didn’t quite live up to expectations.

She kick-started her season by wearing two back-to-back Burberry Prorsum fairly laidback looks before hitting the red carpet in a Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2014 look which, despite its boldness, didn’t go down too well.

By the time the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards came around, it looked like the theme for the rest of the season was strapless, as after this event she went on to wear a further four strapless looks.

While not a single look blew me away or broke me out in goosebumps, the McQueen, the Roland Mouret and the green Lanvin at the SAG Awards stood out.

My favourite? The McQueen.

Which Was Your Favourite Amy Adams 2014 Awards Season Look?

Which Was Your Favourite Amy Adams 2014 Awards Season Look

Amy Adams ditched the expected enchanting gowns for a sleeker look this awards season.

Favouring London-based designers, she rocked Roksanda Ilincic, Victoria Beckham, Roland Mouret and Antonio Berardi with breathtaking results.

She was at her best when working an old-Hollywood glam look. I just love the regal vibe from her Antonio Berardi gown, which was my favourite this awards season closely followed by her Valentino Couture Golden Globes gown and her Gucci Premiere Oscars gown.

The only looks I wasn’t too fond of were her Victoria Beckham BAFTA gown and, looking back, her Carolina Herrera Vanity Fair gown lacked fizz.

Which Was Your Favourite Cate Blanchett 2014 Awards Season Look?

Which Was Your Favourite Cate Blanchett 2014 Awards Season Look2

Cate Blanchett, like Lupita Nyong’o, was one to watch this awards season.

Looking back, there weren’t as many wow moments as I was hoping for.

I loved her two Armani Prive looks – though this is no surprise as the actress is always radiant in Armani – but my overall favourite was the Givenchy look at the AACTA Awards as it was such an unexpected look from Cate.

The letdowns were Prada at the nominees’ luncheon, the lack of drama from McQueen at the BAFTAs, and the shoe choices with her fabulous Antonio Berardi and Roksanda Ilincic looks.

Which Was Your Favourite Lupita Nyong’o 2014 Awards Season Look?

Lupita Awards Season 2014

Lupita Nyong’o has been a breath of fresh air since she hit the red carpet. Her awards-season run was as expected: spectacular.

We’ve never seen so much colour from one celebrity (excpepct perhaps Elizabeth Banks), and or such a variety of hairstyles from such a short hair cut.

Trying to narrow down my favourite look is like asking a mother ‘who is your favourite child?’

My top four are Calvin Klein at the Critics’ Choice Awards, Gucci at the SAG Awards, Dior Couture at the BAFTAs and Ralph Lauren at the Globes.

Are you having a hard time narrowing your favourite to just one?
