2013 Academy Awards

EDIT: Somehow I forgot Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence from the list.  I accidentally saved their photos to the SAGs folder.  I have now remedied the problem and you will find those two ladies added.

So here is my Oscars post!  Sorry it's not sooner, but well, I chose The Walking Dead over this to watch last night.  I know, I know, but Daryl!  I couldn't not watch it.  So today I caught up and it was worth the wait.  Both the fashion and the entertainment didn't fail to impress, me at least.

 I know some people didn't like the "nipple effect" Anne Hathaway's Prada dress gave her, but I thought she still looked beautiful.  This girl can do no wrong in my eyes.  She has gracefully grown from Disney Princess to Hollywood starlet.  Her humbleness touches me and she will always be a top contender for me.

  Ben Affleck looked very handsome in his Gucci three piece tuxedo.  I loved the waistcoat, and I will always be on Team Scruff.  His best accessory though was his gorgeous wife and she, him.  Ben and Jen are most definitely tied as my favourite Hollywood couple.

 Catherine Zeta-Jones rocked the old Hollywood look on the red carpet in Zuhair Murad and gave a great performance of "All That Jazz" on the stage.
Charlize Theron wowed in a white peplum Dior Couture dress.  Even though she had to cut her hair for a role, she still looked like such a movie star.  This gown is perfect for her lean figure because the peplum gives her the appearance curves.

 Oh, Eddie Redmayne.  What's not to like?  He's tall, British, green eyes, freckles, and a voice to make a girl swoon.  He certainly did not fail to impress in his Alexander McQueen tuxedo.  Also, his performance with his Les Miserables co-stars was just so incredible and moving.  It gave me chills.

 E! News host Giuliana Rancic looked beautiful in Couture Rafael Cennamo.  I love the way the fabric folds around her body to give her a hourglass figure.

The always handsome Hugh Jackman continued to charm in his Tom Ford tuxedo.  This man can never look bad.  His performance with his Les Miserables co-stars was phenomenal.  And how sweet was he when he rushed to help Jennifer Lawrence up after her now infamous fall?  Such a gentleman.

 Dior spokeswoman, Jennifer Lawrence made an impact in a Dior Haute Couture gown.  I still am undecided on this girl, but she definitely looked beautiful in this dress.  I loved how the backwards necklace really emphasized the gorgeous cut of the back.

 One of my favourite stylish men Joseph Gordon-Levitt did not fail me Sunday night.  He looked very charming in a Gucci tuxedo and his trademark hitRECord red pin.  This man has a certain old Hollywood vibe to him, which is rare for the men of this day and age.  Joe certainly pulls it off perfectly.  And how adorable was he during the opening?  I love to hear him sing and watch him dance.

The second component to one of my favourite couples, Jennifer Garner looked pretty in a plum Gucci gown.  Her art deco-esque necklace was to die for!  She always looks so effortlessly beautiful.

Miu Miu clad Kerry Washington looked glamorous last night.  I love how she kept her jewelry to a minimum to really play up the embellishment of the bodice.  I would liked to have seen her hair a little different.  Perhaps a little more volume or even a messy updo.

Phwoar!  Naomi Watts killed it in Armani Prive.  She is one of my absolute favourites to watch on the red carpet because she looks beautiful in everything.  She is a complete knockout and I wouldn't change a thing about this look.  She makes up one part of my other favourite Hollywood couple.

 Besides being incredibly funny and having a very sexy voice, Seth MacFarlane looked very dashing in his tuxedo.

Here is Liev Schreiber looking devastatingly debonair beside his lovely partner.  These two are just perfection.  I love how down to Earth they seem.  They're like Barbie and Ken.  Liev never fails to look like the perfect accessory to his missus' red carpet looks.  Plus, hello Team Scruff! 

Zoe Saldana, in Alexis Mabille, wowed on the red carpet.  I adore the shades of grey on the bottom, the belt, just all of it!  The by far, my favourite part is from the waist down.

Another of the awards season's ones to watch, Amanda Seyfried looked angelic in Alexander McQueen.  She wore a similar look the last time, but I think this one is better.  Plus she wore her hair up to really show off the neat neckline.

Amy Adams, one of my favourite actresses looked effortless and chic in Oscar de la Renta.  I love her hair up like that and the fact that she kept her jewelry simple.  That bracelet is so pretty!

Mmm...Chris Pine.  Chris looked gorgeous in a double-breasted Ermenegildo Zegna tuxedo.  That man has the prettiest blue eyes and ehm...Team Scruff!  Yum.  I cannot wait for the next Star Trek.

Flawless.  Flawless.  Flawless.  Jessica Chastain looked like Jessica Rabbit in Armani Prive.  This could have gone wrong with the flesh colour of her dress washing her out, but it didn't at all.  The classic red lip tied it all together.  This woman is so stunning.

I'm not really a big fan of Kristen Stewart or her red carpet looks, but even I must admit that she good in her Reem Acra frock.  She was even able to ditch the crutches for some photos.  I just wish she would have done something with her hair.  I'm so tired of seeing like she was in a wind tunnel.

Nicole Kidman has been hit or miss lately, but I thought she looked quite pretty in L'Wren Scott.  I know there's been a lot of backlash about her hair, at least on E!, but I don't think it's that's bad.  At least it's not that stick straight look she always wears.

Wowza!  I adore Olivia Munn in this red and gold Marchesa gown.  I heard that she had to get sewn into the dress because the zipper wouldn't stay up.  Oh, what we do for fashion.  It was definitely worth it.

Salma Hayek switched things up in Alexander McQueen.  Instead of showing off her lovely decolletage, she showed off this gorgeous gold collar that forms the sweetheart neckline.  This reminds me of something that Michelle Dockery would wear.  I'm glad she wore her hair up, but I just wish it would be different.  It sort of reminds me of a shih-tzu...

 Oh, Reese...  Witherspoon looked so beautiful in her cobalt blue and black Louis Vuitton frock.  I am having some serious hair envy here!  Check out those waves and that volume!  I'm usually more of a sweetheart neckline girl, but I love the black panel across the top and on the sides, giving the illusion that she's even tinier than she is.

Sandra Bullock looked dazzling in this bejeweled Elie Saab gown.  I loved the gorgeous diamond hair clip that held the left side back, I just wish her hair would have had a little texture to it.  But then again, I am more of a waves/curls kind of girl.  I just feel like the straight hair is a little bit too much of an every day look.  Though the clip definitely helped offset that.

All of these ladies looked absolutely lovely, but here are my top five favourites.

Jessica Chastain
Naomi Watts
Amy Adams
Reese Witherspoon
Olivia Munn
