Oscars 2014 Fashion & Beauty

Hollywood’s biggest night brings all the brightest stars to the red carpet, and last night’s 86th Academy Awards was no exception. I could care less about the actual awards, but I love seeing the stars arrive in gorgeous gowns. Here are some of the best, worst, and more from last night’s Oscars.

 The Best

oscars2014-cate-blanchettCate Blanchett: My favorite. This nude Armani gown was was sheer perfection, with all its shimmering textural details. The illusion neckline just put it over the top for me. I adored this on her. (Image via NY Daily News)

oscars2014-kate-hudsonKate Hudson: I’m calling the Oscars “The Night of the K/Cates” because these two stole the show, in my opinion. Kate H. looked absolutely flawless in a stunning Atelier Versace gown with a dramatic draped back and a deep plunging v-neck. Her hair and makeup were just perfect, too.

oscras2014-lupita1Lupita Nyong’o: This sheer, frothy Prada ballgown, in “Nairobi blue,” as she called it, was stunning on her. People are comparing it to Cinderella’s dress, but I think she puts the Disney princess to shame. This woman kills it in every. single. thing. she wears. Her style is impeccable, and I am so looking forward to seeing what she wears to future award shows. (Image: Getty)

oscars2014-charlizeCharlize Theron: Dramatic. Sexy without being overt. Sleek. Cut beautifully. This Christian Dior Couture gown was everything on Charlize. (Image: Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP)

oscars2014-angelina-jolieAngelina Jolie: I can’t get over the metallic beading on this Elie Saab gown, and how gorgeous it made the neckline. And in true Angelina style, it was a little bit risque without showing too much. (Image: Jason Merritt/Getty)

oscars2014-camillaaCamilla Alvez: I love this blush color on her. I wouldn’t ever think to put her in this shade, because it should clash with her skin tone, but it looks incredible. I love the asymmetry of the Gabriela Cadena gown, too; the drapey side is to die for. (Image: Kevin Mazur/Getty)

The Worst

oscars2014-amyadamsAmy Adams: Boring. I always thought you couldn’t go wrong in classic navy, but I was mistaken. Couldn’t she dig up something more exciting? Or at least experiment with her hair and/or makeup? There is nothing wrong with this Gucci gown, but she had some tough competition on the red carpet, and the other ladies drowned her out. (Image: Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP)

oscars2014-julia-robertsJulia Roberts: Take the peplum off this dress, and it’s a winner. But with it, it’s just too busy. I give her credit for upgrading basic black with lace, but this Givenchy gown takes it a step too far with the frilly waist addition. (Image: Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP)

oscars2014-gagaLady Gaga: For someone who’s all about taking fashion risks, this dress was a total snooze. And the scarf, which looks like it’s choking her, can go. (Image: Jason Merritt/Getty)

oscars2014-anna-kendrickAnna Kendrick: Can I say that this J. Mendel gown is just ugly? (Image: Jason Merritt/Getty)

oscars2014-chenowethKristin Chenoweth: Was she trying to look like an Oscar statue? Not fan of the metallic geometric patterns on this Cavalli gown. (Image: Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP)

oscars2014-hathawayAnne Hathaway: There’s nothing wrong with a black column gown, but the top on this Gucci number looks like a suit of armor. (Image: Getty)

The Rest

oscars2014-jgarnerJennifer Garner: Her tiered gown was a little too flapper-esque for my taste–but overall, she looked great. (Image: Kevin Mazur/WireImage)

oscars2014-sandra-bullockSandra Bullock: I almost put her on my best-dressed list, but I can’t get past the fabric of this dress. Everything about it–the cut, fit, style–is perfect, but the shininess of the fabric is throwing me. The shape on her is stunning. (Image: Steve Granitz/Getty)

oscars2014-naomi-wattsNaomi Watts: Always playing it safe. I want to see her go big and really experiment with something. It’s time! She looks good in this white Calvin Klein number, but take some risks! (Image: Lester Cohen/WireImage)

 

oscars2014-jessica-bielJessica Biel: The Chanel Haute Couture gown was fabulous in itself, but I feel like it washed out JBiel. The shimmer on it is gorgeous, though. (Image: Jason Merritt/Getty)
