The red carpet at the Kodak Theater is my favorite runway. Ever. This is the first time in years that I haven’t watched both the Academy Awards and the outfit coverage. My Twitter feed kept me up-to-date though. It wasn’t a facsimile for the real (televised) thing, but it sufficed. Just this once. Oh, I did catch a clip of Patricia Arquette’s awesome acceptance speech. She’s so cool. She’s so cool. She’s so cool.
There were so many ultra-glamorous gowns to love last night, but these are the looks I liked best. In no particular order…
Margot Robbie in Saint Laurent. A plunging neckline provided the perfect canvas for showcasing this unbelievable Van Cleef & Arpels zipper necklace. This image does the bauble no justice, but you can see a close-up right here.
Perhaps the best thing about Reese Witherspoon’s Tom Ford dress, is her smile. She’s absolutely radiant here! She also looks like a Barbie… from the fifties. #best
Talk about red haute! Rosamund Pike’s Givenchy gown is perfection. Perfection. Hair, makeup, shoes, everything. She could not be more put-together.
Say it isn’t so! More than one black ensemble made my short list. Oh my. Per usual, the great Cate Blanchett killed it. This Maison Martin Margiela number, plus that turquoise Tiffany necklace. Like whoa. #flawless
And the winner is… Emma Stone. Her custom chartreuse (so fun to say) Elie Saab gown is the bees knees. This silhouette oozed Old Hollywood glam. The side slit, the long sleeves, the intricate beading, and the open back, I love every inch. #bestinshow
Congrats to all the winners. It’s about time Julianne Moore took home a little gold statue. I mean, really.
Happy Monday. It’s almost March ya’ll, which means Spring is nigh! I cannot wait for buds and blooms and far less layers.
