It was one of the biggest night’s in fashion as well as film last night, and any fashion lover won’t have been able to resist all the style and glamour that was the Academy Awards red carpet. It’s possibly my favourite fashion night of the year (even above the Met Gala) and I managed to keep myself awake until 01.30am Irish time to catch a glimpse of all this year’s celeb looks.
The Oscars are the crème de la crème of events when it comes to beautiful gowns, and although last night’s dresses weren’t the most stand out looks of all time, I’ve picked out my top three to share with you all.
Not dissimilar to earlier award season events this year, rich sequins, golds and whites were donned by many female stars, with sultry eyes and nude lips dominating the red carpet also.
Here’s a look at my Top Three looks from the night:
Cate’s beautiful Armani Privé Seafoam coloured gown was the last dress I saw before falling to sleep last night and my first thoughts were yes. Just yes! The seafoam colour which is like a soft aqua shade, is just gorgeous on Cate and her hair and makeup is understated and classy.
A soft grey mixed with what appears to be a hint of purple eyeshadow compliments the subtle pop of lavender that runs through Cate’s gown and her soft lip finishes the look of perfectly. This is just beautiful and elegant all round in my opinion.
Margot has been on fire this awards season and last night was no different in this ultra sexy gold Tom Ford number. This girl just screams Oscar Glam with this look and the shape of this dress is super flattering on her enviable figure.
Her soft waves, again paired with light makeup, is the perfect accompaniment to this gorgeous gown.
To me this is Saoirse’s best look of the year so far, without a doubt. And it was also my favourite look of the night (not just because she is Irish!). This rich green colour is just to die for on her skin tone and I’m in love with this charcoal smokey eye and soft hair combination.
I was a little thrown by the mismatched earrings at first, but hey, if you can pull it off as well as Saoirse can then why not?!
So what do you think? Who was your best dressed on the night? I do have to say that Olivia Munn and Jennifer Garner both looked pretty fab too.
I finally got my hands on the new Urban Decay Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette over the weekend so I’ll be recreating some of these makeup looks over the next few days. Make sure you keep an eye on the blog so you don’t miss out.
Unfortunately it’s now time for me to come back down to earth and get ready for a very normal Monday in work!
Hope you all have a great one.
