Lara Spencer In Kaufmanfranco – Oscars 2014

Lara Spencer In Kaufmanfranco - Oscars 2014

Before playing red carpet host, Lara Spencer struck her own pose at the Oscars 2014, hosted today (March 2) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.

For the occasion, she wore a white Kaufmanfranco column gown with a keyhole cutout. Taking embellishment to the extreme, the dress featured rows and rows of beautiful white stones and beading.

With such intricate decoration, her dress doubled as jewelry. Still, she accented it with a complementary pair of diamond earrings, which were all the more visible with her hair pulled into a loose updo.

Even with the maximum adornment, the light colour prevented the look from becoming too weighted down.

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!

Giuliana Rancic In Paolo Sebastian Couture – Oscars 2014

Giuliana Rancic In Paolo Sebastian Couture - Oscars 2014

Giuliana Rancic made an elegant first impression at Oscars 2014 in Los Angeles tonight (March 2).

The E! host wore a blush-hued Paolo Sebastian Couture from the Fall 2014 collection.

While red carpet hosts are never going to get as much attention as the stars themselves, Giuliana looks absolutely beautiful and definitely deserves praise for her gown choice.

The lace appliqué bodice and layers upon layers of pleated tulle of the skirt are the perfect pairing.

A sleek chignon and dramatic smokey eye complete the look and ensure that ‘G’ can hold her own next to the big names she’ll be interviewing tonight.

2013 Oscars Menswear Round Up

2013 Oscars Menswear Round Up

While the women looked absolutely gorgeous at the 2013 Oscars, the men used the biggest black tie event of the year to showcase some truly dapper looks. A large majority of the men stuck to the classic black and white, as opposed to navy and grey, and it paid off. With all the cleaned-up looks, it was surprising to see that the most popular trend of the night was facial hair. From full beards to scruff, the men of the Oscars made a manly statement.

Channing Tatum: Before dancing with Charlize Theron in the opening, the popular actor donned a nicely fitted Gucci made-to-order navy three-piece tux with Martin Katz studs and cufflinks. His outfit featured a classy shawl lapel and shirt studs. He rocked his tux all night with a huge smile thanks to his glowingly beautiful pregnant wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

Eddie Redmayne: Here’s the one you’ve all been waiting for. The always-dapper Eddie Redmayne arrived in a slim-fit Alexander McQueen black tuxedo with wide peak lapels. Like he’s shown over the past few months, Eddie knows how a suit should fit, and this tux fit perfectly. Finishing off his look with a tribute to the old school, he wore gold studs and, my favourite part, black tuxedo slippers.

Ben Affleck: That fantastic beard is back. The director and producer of Best Picture winner ‘Argo’ wore a Gucci black three-piece tuxedo that featured peak lapels. With his black bow tie, Ben wore a white shirt with a wing-tip collar. The pants could have been a bit shorter, but what he lacks in tailoring he makes up for in facial hair. Ben’s wife, Jennifer Garner, also wore Gucci to the event.

Alicia Vikander In Elie Saab Couture - 2013 Oscars

Alicia Vikander continued her impressive run on the red carpet when she attended the 2013 Oscars on Sunday evening.

Still a relative unknown, the Swedish actress continues to wear Couture designs from the top ateliers which many actresses with more red carpet mileage under their waist-nipping belts can only dream about.

On this occasion she wore an exquisite Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture gown.

Her powder-blue fully embroidered gown with an open-back which was accented with bold belt couldn’t be more perfect for her, but the hair and makeup aged her drastically.

Adele In Burberry – 2013 Oscars Performance

Adele In Burberry - 2013 Oscars Performance

Adele continued to wave the flag for British fashion at the 2013 Oscars when she took to the stage at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles yesterday evening, for the performance of her Oscar winning song, ‘Skyfall’.

Having worn Jenny Packham on the red carpet, Adele donned a Burberry frock on this occasion, in her favoured colour black.

I love the shape of her black silk dress with degradé embroidered crystals, as it nipped her in at the waist giving her a beautiful silhouette.

Wearing her second pair of custom Christian Louboutin ‘Bibi’ strass pumps – this time in silver – Adele completed her look with a glorious voluminous bouffant.

Michelle Obama In Naeem Khan – 2013 Oscars

85th Annual Academy Awards - Show

The last person we were expecting to see at the 2013 Oscars was Michelle Obama.

Presenting the ‘Best Picture’ award live via satellite from the Governors’ dinner in Washington, D.C., the First Lady looked radiant wearing a gown by her go-to designer, Naeem Khan.

Much like Octavia Spencer and Tadashi Shoji, Mrs O and Naeem Khan are a match made in fashion heaven.

Her custom-made smoke-grey and silver art deco inspired beaded sleeveless tulle gown with a square neckline was styled with the most exquisite earrings and a matching ring.

Sporting the most famous bangs in the world, she completed her look with a glossy lip colour.
