Yes! it's finally here, the biggest event of the year when it comes to Film, the 84th Academy Awards. And I cannot believe it's been exactly a year since my first Cherry's Choice blog post!
First off, let me just say, I was pretty disappointed with the fashion this year, there were no particular looks I thought "Wow" and to contrast with that, they were no terrible terrible looks I just 100% hated. But I'm judging them all anyway! Enjoy!
Milla Jovovich in Elie Saab Couture
It was Milla's first time at the Oscars and she didn't let anyone forget her. She was one of the first on the carpet and I just thought she looked absolutely stunning from head to toe. She brought back the vintage Hollywood-starlet look and did it very very well. The hair, the make-up and even the dress was all flawless. This Elie Saab dress gives her an excellent silhouette and the jewellery completed the look.
#2 Best Dressed
Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford
White was definitely the colour of the night and Gwyneth Paltrow took the crown for being the Ice Queen. This dramatic dress certainly turned heads. I'm sure a lot of people won't like it, but she's wearing a cape! you can't get more chic than that. The hair is very matronly, but it just works, she kept herself bare and allowed the dress to do all the talking ... and just look at that bracelet, need I say more? A dramatic outfit that she pulled off. Well done Gwynnie!
Judy Greer in Monique Lhuilier
Well, I think I'd like this dress in another event, maybe the SAG awards but for the Oscars? Hell no Judy. It's a dress with a very high neckline and so it would look so much better if she pulled her hair up in a tight up-do and showed off that beautiful long neck of hers. The red hair is a pretty big clash with the silver too. It's a pretty 'edgy' dress, so maybe a thick eyeliner would've made it look good. A nice-ish dress that would've gave her a great look if she just followed those points.
#2 Worst Dressed
Anna Faris in Diane von Furstenburg
This was just too much black. It completely disguised her beautiful figure. Maybe if there was a belt in the middle, just to separate all that black then I'd like it more. And the aged dress with that soccer mom hair does not go well together. A bad fashion choice Anna.
Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton
I was pleasantly surprised by Michelle William's choice of outfit. I expected her to come out in a big, frumpy girly outfit complete with pictures of an animal printed on it, but this is a beautiful, mature choice by the talented actress. The colour looks great on her and it's a complicated silhouette outside of her comfort zone. I love it. Definitely up there with the best dressed of the night.
Emma Stone in Gambattista Valli Couture
What was she thinking? Emma Stone has been killing it at the award shows this past year and has been looking flawless at every red-carpet but the one that matters the most .. she just tanked. It's a beautiful colour on her skin, but it clashes with her red hair. That neck bow does her no justice, it can't be comfortable at all and all that frumpy, baggy material is just hiding her petite little body.
Li Bingbing in Georges Chakra Couture
She's a huge star in Asia and is set to hit it big in America and Europe too and she's certainly turning heads in the fashion world. Li Bingbing, the future Resident Evil star, looked immaculate in this beautiful mermaid gown. She showed the America's how it should be done. The hair was perfection, the make-up was so elegant and the whole outfit was incredible, I loved the sheer detail panels in the side. 10/10 - And you would never be able to guess she was 39 years old! - today actually .. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LI BINGING!
Shailene Woodley in Valentino Couture
I actually like this dress, well, it's Valentino so of course I do! but Shailene is 20 years old, her recent fashion choices (including this one) just aren't age-suitable. She should start dressing more her age, especially since all the exposure from The Descendants is making her into a rising, huge star!
Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen
This is a beautiful, dramatic gown by McQueen and Jessica pulls it off very well. I loved the detailing and the way her hair just flows beside her.
Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace
I was very disappointed with this. It's just an awkward silhouette, the asymmetrical style was just not doing it for me. Of course she looks beautiful, it's Angelina Jolie, and she could make a paper-bag look great. But it's not one of her best looks by far.
Louise Roe in Black Halo
The structure of this dress is just incredible. I loved the formality mixed with the edginess of the shape structures and when it comes to accessories and style, the fashion journalist and presenter knows just how to work it.
Kristen Wiig in J.Mendel
She looked so beautiful in this light, feathery gown by J Mendel. I loved the colour on her and the beach waved hair completed everything so gracefully.
As you know, I can't fit ALL of the looks of the night, but feel free to disagree or agree with any of my choices or you can even add your own! you know where to comment. (: xoxo
