Tina Fey, JLo and More: The Best Dressed Celebs at the 2012 Oscars
It’s the usual suspects: Natalie Portman, Cameron Diaz, Michelle Williams and the rest of the women who looked fantastic at the 84th Academy Awards.
The Artist and The Help went head to head in almost every category at the Oscars last night. And who won Best Actress? Meryl Streep! She wasn’t in either of the aforementioned movies, but she did portray Margaret Thatcher (beautifully, in my opinion) in Iron Lady.
Pastel shades were the hot trend of the night, though a few celebs like Natalie Portman, Tina Fey and Leslie Mann bucked the trend. And in a sea of pale frothy creations they stood out in the very best way.
But enough with the boring analysis! Let’s get on to the good stuff… who wore it best!
Wowza! Jennifer Lopez wears Zuhair Murad a lot on the red carpet and she was a knock-out in his ivory beaded gown. I seemed to have missed the boob sitch (I was probably looking for a chip to munch on when it occurred), but even without using fashion tape, she looked fab. Jennifer wore sparkling earrings and rings from Lorraine Schwartz and finished the look with L’Oreal Paris Infallible 8HR Le Gloss in Coral sands. Now that’s something we can afford!
Does this woman age? She still looks the same as she did in The Mask. Loved, loved, loved the nudish Gucci Premiere silk strapless gown with the silk chiffon diagonal strips! It was modern, but very romantic. On her feet, Cameron Diaz wore Ferragamo blush satin peep toe pumps. She also sported diamond and platinum jewelry from Tiffany’s (lucky girl) and Lancôme Rouge in Love lip color in Roses in Love.
Oh, who cares that they’re coming out with Resident Evil 23? The combination of Milla Jovovich’s dark hair, startling blue eyes and icy white beaded gown was a visual treat. The couture gown and her shoes were from Elie Saab, while her box clutch was from Edie Parker.
New mommy Natalie Portman looked totes adorb last night — those bright, warm colors really compliment her complexion and hair. If you thought her gown looked vintage … it was! The polka dotted creation is a 1954 Christian Dior Haute Couture gown. I’d almost maim someone for it. She topped off the look with a statement platinum and diamond necklace, bracelets and earrings from Harry Winston. But how did her hair stay so well-behaved? Frederic Fekkai’s Adir Abergel finished her ‘do with Fekkai’s Coiff Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray, of course.
The woodland pixie otherwise known as Michelle Williams wore a stunning burnt orange Louis Vuitton gown and Forever Mark jewels and carried a pink clutch. Sweetly stunning.
There are times when Jessica Chastain looks incredible on the red carpet, and there are times when “meh” is the politest thing you can say about what she wore. For the Oscars, though, she pulled out the stops and wore a custom-created gown by Alexander McQueen. Sarah Burton, the designer for the line, used gold bullion to embroider it! Celebrity manicurist Debbie Leavitt used Essie’s Berry Hard, a deep maroon, on her nails.
Bridesmaids star Ellie Kemper literally glowed in her bronze Armani Prive gown. The base of the gown was red. Sewn on top were square paillettes in scarlet, yellow and orange. Her accessories were bold gold pieces (earrings, clutch, bracelet) that complimented the fiery dress.
Another star from ‘Bridesmaids’, Rooney Mara’s big sis and Tina Fey up next!
