2013 Oscar Fashion Standouts

Last night was the Oscars. And what a show it was. Seth MacFarlane of Family Guy fame hosted and although I woke up this morning to see mixed reviews on his hosting, I personally think he did a great job. That is part of the reason I stayed up and watched the entire show! One of my most favourite things about last night was when a winner ran over in their acceptance speech, the Jaws theme music would play. That idea HAD to have come from Seth, and it was just perfect. 

Next, my guess for best picture was wrong. I went all in for Les Misérables winning, but it was Argo that came out on top. Although I still stand by my choice, I am totally fine with Argo winning as it really was a fantastic movie. After seeing the acceptance speeches last night, I was very happy Ben Affleck. He put in a lot of work and made a great movie. Last note about the awards show itself, there was a 50 year James Bond tribute! I am a Bond fanatic and was very much looking forward to it. Although the tribute was nice it wasn't what I'd hoped. Super short and more about the music than the movies. What was also a bit sad was that there were so many rumours leading up to the show that all 6 Bonds would appear together on stage for the first time. Didn't happen. But we got a lovely highlight real of the movies and a killer performance of Goldfinger by Shirley Bassey!

Now, moving on to the fashion! This was a good show for fashion. Nothing crazy or innovative compared to the previous awards shows this season, but good nonetheless. I had many favourites but my top two are: Jennifer Aniston in Valentino and Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen.

It was hard to narrow down the runners up but here are the stars who also made my list:

Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscars

Who did you think was best dressed last night?


  1. Jennifer Aniston is gorgeous frig she is my absolute favorite but for best dressed I would have to say Maria Menounos in her bright pink gown!

    1. I love Jen. And yes! Maria Menounos! Her dress was pretty much the only bright dress of the red carpet and it looked fab on her! I liked her retro hair too.

  2. amy adams is definitely my favorite! she looks sooo flawless! :)
    lots and lots of love

    1. I loved the colour of her dress with her complexion and hair colour! She really did look beautiful.

  3. Oh Jennifer Aniston can do no wrong- always so gorgeous.

    Charlize doesn't even look like a real person. She honestly looks like a gorgeous statue! I love her hair longer much more but even so, she looks amazing.

    I wasn't a big fan of Sandra Bullock's wear.

    Love Jennifer Lawrence's outfit, personality and fall- she's so cute.

    I am a huge Seth Macfarlane fan but I did think it wasn't as funny as he really is. But then again- I don't know that the Oscars is the best showcase for his tremendous talent. It wasn't awful though!

    1. I agree with you on Charlize - I miss her long locks!

      Before Silver Linings Playbook and before awards season I was NOT a huge Jennifer Lawrence fan but now I can't get enough of her! She really is awesome.

      Agree with what you say about Seth too... I think he definitely played it a bit more modest than he normally would. But I still liked him a lot. Not so much the monologue as his humour throughout the show :)
