Last night was the 86th Annual Academy awards aka “The Oscars” and it was the most entertaining Oscars since Bill Murray’s last time hosting. Elle Degeneres hosted this year with great pop culture references, selfies and pizza.
Unfortunately, I didn’t see any of that because I don’t have cable or wifi but I caught up today! But a big congratulations to Steve McQueen who became the first black director with the first primarily black film to receive the Best Picture award! Milestones, people!
Let’s talk Oscars red carpet! My favorite looks are here! The Oscars had their own trends of pastels, nudes and whites but most of all, it had some great moments!
First up…Amy Adams
Amy Adams looked glamorous in a gorgeous strapless navy Gucci dress with what can be conceived as hip flaps? She also made the carpet a little bit more colorful.
Angelina Jolie showed that a double mastectomy can’t slow her down with a beautiful embellished Elie Saab Haute Couture gown. Thank goodness Halle Berry brought Elie Saab to all of our attentions because he was the designer of the night!!!
Ahhh Bradley Cooper. Looking fabulous in a traditional cut tuxedo by Tom Ford. I loved this look over his nomination/snub of last year’s Oscars.
We can always count on Jared Leto sprucing up the men’s red carpet and he did not disappoint managing to make an odd combination of red, white and black Saint Laurent look dapper! Even with the hair, he couldn’t be stopped especially when he won best supporting actor!
Phenomenal beauty Jennifer Lawrence once again made a gorgeous debut in a red Dior strapless (also with hip flaps) gown! She manages to wear red on a red carpet without getting washed out and somehow popping!
Hit Record host and creator, Joseph Gordon-Levitt looked snazzy in a nicely tailored Calvin Klein tux. He accessorized the suit with his famous Hit Record button that happens to look great with everything!
Princess of the night, Lupita Nyong’o, put Cinderella to shame in a stunning baby blue pastel Prada gown! She topped off the look with a “tiara” by Fred Leighton. After rooting for her all season and being almost stupefied by her beauty, this put me over the top! And her acceptance speech for winning best supporting actress brought everyone to tears, almost as much as her fairytale style!
Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves
McConaughey won his best actor award looking fantastic in a white Dolce and Gabbana tuxedo! He also donned the best accessory into the awards, his beautiful wife Camila Alves, wearing a Gabriela Cadena gown.
But the best trending accessory on the red carpet were the cheesy smiles. Thanks to Ellen Degeneres, we have the ultimate selfie with awesome actors’ chesire cat grins!
