And the award goes to…

I’m the girl who loves the Oscars. Hollywood’s biggest night they call it. The movies, the red carpet glam, the opening monologue…I love it all.

Every year, I do my best to try to see as many of the best picture nominations as I can. This year I made it to 4 out of 8; The Theory of Everything, Imitation Game, American Sniper, and The Grand Budapest Hotel. My favourite you ask? The Theory of Everything. Not only was this a touching story of the life of scientist Steven Hawking, but the acting by leading man Eddie Redmayne was superb! He was also my stand out pick for the guys on the red carpet this season.

But alas as this is a beauty blog and I am a beauty addict, my truly favourite part of the evening are the red carpet looks. Here are some of my favourite gowns from last night’s awards.

Rosamund Pike: Can we all agree how amazing Gone Girl was? I’ve always wondered if red gowns on red carpets are too much. This one however is stunning. The rosettes and slit up the front give it a standout and modern edge. I also love the cinching at the waist that shows off the amazing fit on her figure. I don’t think I’ve had any complaints towards the looks Rosamund Pike has worn this season.

 Jamie Chung: I will admit, I don’t know who you are or what you acted in but the dress was on point. I spotted this dress from a bloggers tweet and I fell in love. I’m a sucker for a sheer nude ball gown dress with a sparkly overlay. Navy is also one of my favourite colours to see on the red carpet so this one gets five stars in my books.

Jennifer Lopez: JLo I don’t know why you were at the Oscars but you killed it.  I told you I loved the sheer nude ball gown with a sparkly overlay. From head to toe this consistency of the nude colour is amazing.  I love the volume and plunging neckline on this dress as well. If I had to pick one winner for the night in the dress category, it would be this one. This is definitely not a Jenny from the block look.

Anna Kendrick: This is another girl who always pulls knock out looks. The dress is standout with the peachy colour, the shape and the blingy neckline that draws you to the cute cut out. I want this dress. But I think what I love most about Anna Kendrick here is her make-up. It complements her look perfectly without being overpowering. Definitely a makeup look I want to recreate this spring.

There were so many other amazing dresses and looks but these were by far my favourite. Which dresses were your favourites? I wish I could get all dolled up for a red carpet event and wear one of these dresses. *sigh. A girl can dream I guess!

Until next time,
