Amy Adams In Oscar de la Renta – 2013 Oscars

2013Oscars_AmyAdams2

‘The Master’ actress Amy Adams made a grand entrance at the 2013 Academy Awards red carpet today at California’s Dolby Theatre in the Hollywood & Highland Center.

Before the show even started, the nominee paraded out her own Oscar—Oscar de la Renta, that is—wearing a fairytale-inspired, princess ball-gown by the designer.

The powdery blue colour of this confection could have faded into the background, but not with its extravagant design that featured fluffy layers of feathery tulle that trailed several feet behind her.

Her train nearly needed its own entourage to maneuver down the red carpet line.

Like Jessica Chastain, Amy didn’t go too far with her accessories. With the sweetheart bodice, she skipped a necklace and wore a pair of simple diamond drop earrings and a braided rope bracelet.

Her auburn locks were pulled into a twisted updo, while a petal-pink lip played into the extreme softness of this look.

Up next for Amy is taking on the role of Lois Lane in ‘Man of Steel.’ Was she a superhero of style for you?

Queen Latifah In Badgley Mischka – 2013 Oscars

Queen Latifah was one of many actresses to chose white at the 2013 Oscars held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The ‘Steel Magnolias’ actress and producer wore a simple Badgley Mischka gown with beading along the straps.

As a CoverGirl spokesmodel, it’s no surprise that Queen wore a striking berry shade of CoverGirl lipstick and the shade–along with her lashes, which went on for days, were a beautiful accent to the stark white gown.

I love how simple Queen Latifah kept it on the red carpet, and the white is beautiful against her mocha skin.

Sandra Bullock In Elie Saab – 2013 Oscars

Sandra Bullock stood strong on the red carpet Sunday at the 2013 Oscars held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The ‘The Blind Side’ actress wore an embellished black and silver Elie Saab Spring 2013 Couture gown.

Letting her perfect figure lead the way, Sandra looks like the Hollywood heavy-hitter that she is in this elegantly beaded gown.

The capped sleeves accent her toned arms, while the Swarovski clutch and Harry Winston jewelry are the perfect accessories, as they don’t overpower the gown.

I do wish Sandy would have pulled up her hair, as leaving it down cuts into the perfect silhouette of the gown, but overall, she makes a strong, classic statement.

Anne Hathaway In Prada – 2013 Oscars

Anne Hathaway graced the red carpet on Sunday evening at the 2013 Oscars hosted at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Nominated for her role in ‘Les Misérables’, Anne chose a pink column-style gown from Prada. The halter neck tied down the back of the dress like a present ribbon. While this design wasn’t my favorite of the night, the dress has a very delicate feel that suits Anne and her equally delicate features well.

The actress joined Jennifer Lawrence in sporting the back jewelry trend by letting her floral necklace from Tiffany & Co. drape past her shoulders. I love the trend, but in this case the necklace competes with the crisscross of the open back of the dress. Anne wore beautiful silver ankle strap heels and a pink Roger Vivier clutch.

Anne completed her Oscars look with a side swept hairstyle and light pink lip to match her hue of choice.

Jennifer Garner In Gucci – 2013 Oscars

Jennifer Garner stood out from the sea of muted dresses on the red carpet Sunday at the 2013 Oscars held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The ‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green’ actress wore a custom Gucci gown that looked stunning against her ivory skin.

The actress carried a Roger Vivier clutch and wore Neil Lane jewelry and in a year when most of the stars on the red carpet are taking a simplistic approach to their styling, her $2.5 million worth of jewels and dramatic ruffles evoke the spirit of years past when opulence was more du jour.

I love Jennifer’s brown smokey eyes and slightly messy updo, but her matte nude lips are just begging for at least a little shine.
