Oscars 2014 – Red Carpet Glory

Posted on by

Well, it’s over, the finale – the heady time of Red Carpets and swishing gowns; the crowning jewel in the awards season – The 86th Academy Awards. Sigh. This year, as is the custom, it was a more subdued, regal affair in the fashion stakes. But no one, and I mean no one could hold a flame to our Cate Blanchett – she was Red Carpet Oscars ALL OVER.

86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals A true, Hollywood glamazon. From the tip of her coiffed head to her toes, resplendent in an incredible flesh coloured, embellished Giorgio Armani gown with the most elegant mesh neck detailing – it was pure perfection. Made even more so by the most ridiculously beautiful drop, aqua earrings. Drool!  And all paired beautifully with understated make-up in matte warm tones, highlighting her porcelain complexion. Divine. And not a bad actress either. Who knew?86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Another firm favourite on the Red Carpet circuit has been newcomer Lupito Nyong. The best supporting actress for 12 Years a Slave (still in therapy from that movie) was an absolute vision in a Prada iced-blue gown. I was in two minds about the headband, but I soon realized that this ingenious choice of accessory actually brought the look together beautifully.

Angelina Jolie also looked incredible in a sequined Champagne coloured Elie Saab number, which managed to slightly pad out her skeletal frame. Still, that face – breathtaking as always!Kate Hudson arrives at the 86th Annual Academy Awards

Kate Hudson got her Hollywood siren on in this beaded Versace showstopper with cape detail (do love a cape). Seriously bombshell material.

She shone in a stunning salmon coloured old Hollywood styled Versace. It was divine against her caramel complexion. Nice one Jada.

Charlize Theron arrives at the 86th Academy AwardsCharlize Theron, who lets be perfectly honest, is one hell of an ice-queen (her latest round of Botox has made her look even less friendly, if that’s at all possible). Still, quite the striking  figure in a black plunging neck Dior. Tres elegant.Matthew McConaughey, Camila Alves

Team  McConaughey – the world’s hottest couple – also looked amazing. I love that although Camila Alvarez has the most incredible body, she chooses to look like a sophisticate rather than getting her bits out. This was one classy lady in a pale pink Gabriela Cadena gown, with STUNNING one shouldered cape business. And with matching ice-pink clutch? So drooling right now. Matthew, the deserving winner of the Best Actor award of the night, was not too shabby either, in a  Dolce & Gabbana dinner suit. Dashing to say the least.

Well, that’s it for another year folks. Sigh. I guess there is always the Logies…
