the 85th Academy Awards Red Carpet

February 25, 2013

The 85th Annual Academy Awards Ceremony was somewhat lackluster in terms of big upsets or surprises -Daniel Day Lewis, Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, and Argo were all expected to win some of the night's biggest awards- and the opening seemed a bit distasteful -I'm 18 and even though I laughed at some of MacFarlane's jokes I did agree that they weren't quite suited for the Oscars, and you can imagine how the older demographics took the whole "actresses and their boobs" song- BUT the starlets did dazzle in their stunning gowns, perhaps a silver lining to some of the night's more awkward moments.

My Fair Ladies

Many of the night's leading ladies chose creams, whites, and pale grays. 

Jennifer Lawrence won the Oscar for Best Actress in Dior Couture and looked stunning, despite having a little trouble getting up to the podium (and remember that next time, when Hugh Jackman races to help you up, you stay down and let him help you (: ) Jessica Chastain did her usual side-swept hair and glam gown, but we aren't complaining because girl looks fierce.

Anne Hathaway may have won best supporting actress, but the jury is still out on whether her Prada gown with side darts that appear to give her pokey nipples was a winning look. Frankly I preferred the Giorgio Armani dress she donned  for the "One Day More" performance by the Les Mis cast. 

Anne's on-screen daughter Amanda Seyfried stunned in Alexander McQueen, and Amy Adams looked absolutely flawless in a cascading Oscar de la Renta dress.

Colorful Creatures

But the night's leading ladies did not only appear in muted tones. Jennifer Aniston wore a gorgeous Valentino red gown, but I wish she had done something a little more glamorous with her hair. Reese Witherspoon looked lovely as always in a form-fitting Louis Vuitton dress and old Hollywood curls.

Jennifer Hudson was breathtaking in sequined Roberto Cavalli and took our breaths away with her Oscar-winning performance of "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going" during the ceremony's tribute to movie musicals. And another Jennifer -Jennifer Garner- looked every bit the winner in a chic Gucci Premier gown with a ruffle train down the spine. I'm sure Ben would have been fine with just his wife in hand last night (though a little golden statue is pretty cool too).

Who were your favorites -and least favorites- of the night?
