Oscars 2013 - Live Blogging The Red Carpet

I don't know what to call the color of Jessica Chastain's Armani Prive dress, but it's almost as beautiful as Jessica herself, and just about as perfect as her hair and makeup.

In comparison, Amy Adams who is usually radiant and lovely, looks washed out. Is it Oscar de la Renta's fault? I'm not sure. But Amy deserves to look much more glamorous.

I'm bored with Resse Witherspoon's LV dress, but it's all about her hair, anyway (the makeup is also beautiful).

That's not the case with Amanda Seyfried who's dress is glorious, her makeup stunning, but whoever did her hair seems to have forgotten the hairspray. Messy is not a good Oscar look.

Catherine Zeta-Jones is wearing the Oscar statue, and her face is equally expressive.

No commentary is needed for the face of Dior, Jennifer Lawrence:

A sure sign a dress is all wrong: when my husband takes one look and says "Oy". That's Anne Hathaway's Prada dress tonight (the necklace is also a mistake. I wish she had chosen bigger earrings instead).

Some dresses had very interesting tops. Kerry Washington and Zoe Saldana had massive embelishments on their bodices, while Naomi Watts had my full attention with her asymmetric silver dress.

I love Sally Field in red, but do wish she had a belt or at least some kind of embellishment on.

Jennifer Aniston is not wearing black. Do we care?

I'm probably the only person in the world (other than Jane Fonda, obviously) who likes this shade of yellow.

Another controversial look is Nicole Kidman's. Let's face it: she's at her best when she looks a little bit scary.

Speaking of scary, Salma Hayek is ready to take over Narnia (she's fabulous, though).

I can't believe I'm saying this: Stacy Keibler looks better than George Clooney.

I don't know if Jennifer Garner will be able to sit in her Gucci dress, but I guess it doesn't matter when you look that good. The color is stunning and original.

Poor Kristen Stewart had a horrible week. Between the Razzies, the UK poll that declared her the least sexy actress in the known universe. Then came her "unexplained injury" that had her hobbling onto the red carpet on crutches, where she fought bravely to keep her balance and smile for the photographers. Her Reem Acra dress is very pretty, and considering the leg or foot situation I can't blame her for not accessorizing and keeping the distractions to a minimum. But a better hairstyle might have helped her greatly.

  1. Yes Amy Adams should have gone a deeper shade and as for Reece Witherspoon dress ... I thought I had seen her wear that one before - LOL
    Mmmm, I think Amy should have worn Reece's dress! :)

  2. Jessica Chastain is gorgeous! Love, love the makeup - its perfection!

  3. Maybe if Amy had a punchier lip color like Jessica she could have saved the dress. Anna Hathaway - does Prada not know how to properly stitch darts on a dress? She needed the necklace to distract from that problematic front. I love Salma Hayek but that halter is strangling her. Ah Jennifer Garner & Jessica Chastain look wonderful together on stage now!

  4. I was intrigued by what Quvenzhane Wallis might wear, and I think her blue dress really works: red carpet glamour can be cute and age appropriate. ~~nozknoz

  5. I love Salma but even the hubby mentioned that neckline/dress was not her best look. I think she has a beautiful neckline and shoulder. I like her in something off the shoulder.

    I thought Anne H.'s makeup was beautiful, but with her pale skin, I would have loved to see her in a deep cobalt blue or burgundy, something to contrast with her skin tone.
    And poor Kristin, she seems very uncomfortable being in the limelight. It makes me wonder if she even wants to be an actress?

  6. "I can't believe I'm saying this: Stacy Keibler looks better than George Clooney." Best line of the evening. And dang if it isn't true!

  7. I love Jane Fonda's look! And I didn't believe anyone could pull off such a yellow.
    I was very impressed with Charlize Theron's hair. She always looks perfect (IMHO) but she definitely rocks that short hair. :)

  8. We have similar taste, Gaia. Jessica Chastain's look is also my favorite and Anne Hathaway's my least favorite. Nicole Kidman looks like a mermaid in an oil spill.
