Best Dressed at the Oscars 2017

Last night saw the stars gather for the annual Academy Awards, a celebration of the finest films as well as one of the most important red carpet moments. I stayed up to see the red carpet arrivals as they happened, with a running commentary on Twitter. There were some really great looks and an overwhelming trend for white and neutral shades. Here are my best dressed from the Oscars red carpet: 

Janelle Monae in Elie Saab Couture
I was first introduced to Janelle Monae 5 years ago by my old manager, he loved her music and I fell in love with her style. This girl has always known how to dress but hasn't really had a breakthrough moment on the red carpet, until now. This Elie Saab couture gown is so extra and I love it. From the voluminous shape to the ornate beading, it’s an exquisite piece of art. perfectly complemented with a gorgeous pixie crop, this is the red carpet look I’ve been waiting for from Ms Monae. 

Emma Stone in Givenchy
All eyes were on Best Actress nominee Miss Stone. Emma is a pro at red carpet dressing and doesn’t usually set a foot wrong, the Oscars were no exception. Opting for a very special piece from Riccardo Tisci’s final collection for Givenchy, Emma channeled old Hollywood glamour in a five-tiered 1920s style gown which was accessories with a chic red lip and soft waves. I love this look even more than her dress and trousers combination at the BAFTAs

Taraji P Henson in Alberta Ferretti
After a disappointing look at the Grammys, I’m so pleased to see Taraji back on form. She has never looked better. This midnight blue velvet Alberta Ferretti dress clings to her curves while the curved off the shoulder neckline shows off her d├ęcolletage and those twinkling jewels. A simple look which made a big impact, this was one of my favourite looks of the night. 

Brie Larson in Oscar de la Renta
This is an exquisite look from Brie, in Oscar for the Oscars. I loved the dramatic sweetheart neckline which balanced out the flamenco-style lower half, the ruffles bought drama and movement to this elegant look. I just wish that the hair was different, it looks rushed and very nearly ruins an otherwise impeccable look. Her hair at the Golden Globes would have been much more appropriate. 

Kirsten Dunst in Dior

No one is more surprised that I like a Kirsten Dunst look than I am. This classic Dior look is just so simple and elegant. The slightly dipped hem, simple neckline and shape all work well on Kirsten and honestly, I can’t get enough of dresses with pockets, it is literally my favourite thing. Again, I feel like the hair slightly let this look down, it just needed to look a little more ‘done’ for this look.

Oscars Fashion 2010

Very brief post, had an awfully stressful day :( 

The Good

Gorgeous colour and dress. I'm a bit perplexed by the rosebud boobs, the dress would be dull without them but I'm not sure they work. 

Gorgeous, beautiful, stunning dress. Absolutely perfect.

Kate looks so stunning in simple shapes, however they can be a little boring on the red carpet. The silhouette works so well on her though, I love the nude, metallic shades. 

Such a beautiful shape, the fit is perfect too. But I think Kristen needs to step out of the gothic vampire shadow and try some other styles. 

Nice...but just nice. I like the sheer detailing and shiny fabric. 

The Bad

Pretty dress, on anyone else it would be lovely. But Penelope has been wearing this shape for the last few seasons. The colour is really pretty though.

Two words...bubble wrap. 

Like Penelope's dress, it's not awful per say but it's playing it very safe for a stunning girl. 

Yes it's Chanel couture, but it doesn't always mean it's going to work. Nothing can make up for an ill-fitting dress. 

On the fence

I love this dress, I do. But something about the overall image doesn't work. I'm not sure whether it's the shoes, the black being too stark against the pale skin or the hair. What do you think?!
