Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Sandra Bullock In Alexander McQueen - Oscars 2014

Sandra Bullock hit the red carpet at the 2014 Oscars held at the Hollywood & Highland Center on Sunday (March 2) in Hollywood, California.

The Best Actress nominee looked regal in a navy Alexander McQueen gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

I love the restrained elegance of this look on Sandy. The gown is classically beautiful and the lines of the sweetheart neck and dramatic draping scream ‘red carpet pro’.

While her perfectly coiffed sideswept curls are equally elegant and classic, Sandy added a bit of modern fun to her look with some teal liner in the waterline of her bottom lids.

A dark manicure and ear cuffs add the perfect bit of edge to the sophisticated look.

I am completely taken by this perfectly styled ‘classic with a bit of fun’ look. Are you as much of a fan as I am?

JadaPinkettSmithInVersaceOscars2014

Jada Pinkett Smith hit the red carpet on Sunday (March 2) at the 2014 Oscars, hosted at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.

The actress looked radiant in a dusty pink gown by Atelier Versace.

Jada jumped on the pastel trend in a rosy gown with a trifecta of details: an elongating halter neck, sexy slit, and dramatic train. The draping of the design was beautiful, feminine and incredibly sleek.

Jada completed her Oscars style with perfectly straight locks and dress-matching pink-hued makeup.

I say this is a sartorial win.

Penélope Cruz In Giambattista Valli Couture - Oscars 2014

Penélope Cruz was pretty in ballet-pink, as she took to the red carpet at the Oscars 2014, held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California on Sunday (March 2).

The Spanish actress swooshed about in a custom blush Giambattista Valli Couture one-shoulder gown.

Elegantly and lightly draped, with a chiffon cape-inspired detail, the effect was a softly romantic one. The slight Grecian silhouette was punctuated by a striking black bow at the empire waist, along with a black handbag.

Chopard diamond chandelier earrings only brightened her radiant smile, as she completed the look with a nude lip and topknot-inspired updo.

A very pregnant Elsa Pataky was glowing at the 2014 Oscars on Sunday, March 2 at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.

The actress and model, who is roughly seven months into carrying Chris Hemsworth’s twins, wore a sparkling Elie Saab number with earrings by Graziela Gems and a bracelet by Dana Rebecca Designs.

This was a less common silhouette than we see on most pregnant stars who generally either loosely drape the baby bump, often with an empire waistline, or go with a fitted sheath. Elsa’s drop waist gives the gown a cool, bohemian vibe but it hides her bustline making the shape feel a bit off.

Relaxed hair and make-up complement the feel of the dress and the earrings are a perfect accent but I struggle to fully embrace the dress without some definition under the bust.

How do you feel about this silhouette?

Meryl Streep In Lanvin - Oscars 2014

The acting goddess that is Meryl Streep made her mark on the red carpet at the 2014 Oscars held at the Hollywood & Highland Center on Sunday (March 2) in Hollywood, California.

The 18-time nominee wore an elegant Lanvin gown that dipped slightly off the shoulder and suited her quirky personal style perfectly.

You never know what you’re going to get from Meryl on the red carpet, but this look is lovely and age appropriate and the belt and bracelets add a nice touch of style and visual appeal.

Of course, it would have been great to see Meryl make a bit more effort with her hair and makeup, but her simplistic take on beauty is part of what make Meryl, Meryl.

JenniferGarnerInOscardelaRentaOscars2014

Jennifer Garner sparkled on Sunday (March 2) at the 2014 Oscars, hosted at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.

With a big nomination for Best Picture for ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ Jennifer wore a gown designed by Oscar de la Renta.

Joining the metallic, beaded, 1920’s-inspired trend, the silver tiered gown was very flattering on the star. Jennifer is one of my favourite red carpet beauties, always making the right sartorial choices in my eyes, but I was underwhelmed by this beaded number–it felt too simple and not glamorous enough for the actress.

Jennifer accessorized her red carpet style with Brian Atwood shoes and Oscar de la Renta’s ‘Goa’ clutch. I did love Jennifer’s side-swept bangs and loosely wavy ‘do and neutral makeup.

What’s your take on Jennifer’s gown?
