Ah, the Oscar's. The red carpet's Super Bowl, if you will. While I didn't get to watch it live (#abroad problems), there were more than enough blog posts, tweets, etc. about it the next morning to satisfy. While I wasn't super impressed this year (does it seem like slim pickings to y'all?) there were some lovely ladies who I thought looked muy guapa!
one. JENNIFER ANISTON (valentino). I'm Team Aniston all the way, so on the real I'm just super excited she was there and looking hot. Also, considering Jen always seems to be wearing something black and simple, this showstopper is a step out for her and I love it. Plus, the hair.
two. CHARLIZE THERON. (dior). She looks kind of like a sexy robot/ice queen type thing. Whatever - it works for her. Also working for her? The short hair. If only we all had the bone structure to pull that off.
three. STACY KEIBLER (naeem kahn). Personally, not that much of a Stacy fan - she's pretty much only famous for dating George Clooney, and that kind of rubs me the wrong way. No matter what, however, she definitely looked fantastic on his arm - that dress (and her bod) is bangin'.
four. NAOMI WATTS (armani). So much sparkle, so little time! The neckline makes it so interesting, and her hair looks perfect with it.
five. ZOE SALDANA (alexis mabille). I have such a girl crush on Zoe, and she always looks fabulous on the red carpet. For me, the hem is a throwback to her killer purple dress at the 2010 Oscars. While this skirt is more understated, the top has got fabulous detail and she pulls it all off like only Zoe can. I only wish she had lost the belt in the limo on the way there...
six. AMY ADAMS (oscar de la renta). Ruffles, train, pretty color, pretty hair. A true princess dress. If I were going to the Oscars, I'd go all out like this. YOLO, Amy Adams. YOLO.
seven. JENNIFER LAWRENCE (dior). Current biggest girl crush ever. Also, again - if I were going to the Oscars, especially with the chance to win, I'd totally want to look like a princess. This fits the bill.
eight. JESSICA CHASTAIN (armani). As a fellow fair-skinned, light-haired person, props to J.Chas to pulling off this color. I think the metallic totally makes it, the cut is beautiful, and that the hair and lipstick are the icing on the cake. She looks totally old school Hollywood glamorous.
nine. SAMANTHA BARKS (valentino). Apparently she plays Epoine in Les Mis? (Sorry Samantha - I still haven't seen it). But she looks awesome enough for me to look her up. A simple black dress with the low v-neck and the stunning necklace is a recipe for success. Flat-chested girls (like me): take note.
ten. SALLY FIELD (valentino). That train. BOOM, enough said.
further proof that J.Lawrence is the coolest thing since sliced bread:
