Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Helen Hunt Awards Season 2013

Helen Hunt had an amazing start to awards season, wearing a Philip Armstrong Atelier gown to the 2013 Critics’ Choice Awards – which was my favourite from the actress.

She dazzled in Dolce & Gabbana at the Golden Globes and in Romona Keveza at the SAG Awards, was classic in black Talbot Runhof at the 2013 DGA Awards; turned to Dolce & Gabbana again for the Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon, kept it chic in a menswear inspired look at the Independent Spirit Awards, but she threw all her hard work down the drain at the final hurdle at the 2013 Oscars.

The blue – considerably creased – H&M gown will go down in history as one of the worst-ever Oscar gowns.

It’s not like H&M can’t make gowns; remember Michelle Williams’ BAFTA gown and their H&M Conscious collection?

Helen Hunt took to the red carpet in a surprising design at Sunday’s 2013 Oscars in Los Angeles.

Nominated for ‘The Sessions’, Helen could have had any designer of her choosing but she opted for a gown by H&M to support the mass retailer’s global green initiative which she style with a Swarovski clutch.

Minus the navy colour and satin material, the strapless column silhouette looked similar to her look from the SAG Awards. I love an affordable gown as much as the next gal but I wish the material hadn’t wrinkled so much before her red carpet strut. Wrinkles aside, I think the dress worked well on Helen.

While the actress opted for a look from a mass retailer, she sparkled in upwards of $700,000 in jewels from Martin Katz with a multi-strand silver necklace, statement-making bangles, and stud earrings.

Helen Hunt In Dolce & Gabbana - 85th Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon‘The Sessions’ star Helen Hunt attended the 85th Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon on Monday at The Beverly Hilton hotel in California.

The Oscar nominee chose a pewter-toned, knee-length dress by Dolce & Gabbana for the occasion. It was straightforward and simple—and safe.

But this classic approach works for the actress, and the understated sophistication was there.

The square neckline remained uncluttered with any jewels, and the ruched fit was flattering.

The shoes, on the other hand, were not. A dynamic pair might have elevated this look, but the light nude, strappy Jimmy Choo sandals did nothing for the dress.

Minimal earrings and a bangle, along with lightly tousled waves and radiant natural makeup, were the finishing touches.

Helen Hunt In Talbot Runhof S13 - 2013 DGA Awards

While some stars cut things short in abbreviated cocktail frocks at the 2013 Directors Guild of America Awards, Helen Hunt went long when she walked the red carpet yesterday evening at The Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland in California.

The actress wore a floor-grazing Talbot Runhof Spring 2013 gown.

This one-shoulder silhouette has become a bit generic, as we’ve seen it on so many red-carpet occasions. The shape was flattering, though.

Done in black, the shade was safe and sophisticated, of course. But I would have rather seen Helen in a vibrant hue like the electric blue from the runway.

An Edie Parker clutch and side-swept waves completed the look.

Helen Hunt In Romona Keveza - 2013 SAG Awards

Monochromatic was the look of choice for Helen Hunt at the 2013 SAG Awards on Sunday.

Nominated for her role in ‘The Sessions’, Helen graced the red carpet in a platinum design by Romona Keveza Fall 2012. The minimalist sequined column dress had extra oomph added thanks to a small train.

The actress really loved the gilded look, as she styled the gown with a matching clutch by Swarovski and a diamond choker, bevy of bangles and earrings by Neil Lane.

With all her sparkle, I’m happy Helen kept her hair in simple waves and makeup that was soft and sun-kissed.

Do you like her all-metallic style?

Helen Hunt In Philip Armstrong - 2013 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

Helen Hunt was radiant on the red carpet yesterday evening when she attended the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

She wore a gown by British designer Philip Armstrong, who can count Coleen Rooney, Alesha Dixon, Tess Daly and Kelly Rowland as clients.

The streamlined red sleeveless gown with sexy lace insert details from the designer’s Atelier collection was styled with glamorous loose waves and natural makeup.

Gold Rene Caovilla sandals, Martin Katz Fine Jewelry and a Lauren Merkin ‘Lucca’ clutch completed her breathtaking look.

I love that the demure actress selected such a bold gown.
