Red Carpet Recap: 2013 Academy Awards

Happy Monday/ Tuesday!

I just finished doing my homework, but before I call it a night, I shall breeze through my red carpet recap of the biggest night in Hollywood: the 85th Academy Awards! :D

Let's start? ;)

Anne Hathaway -

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals: Anne Hathaway

The Best Supporting Actress winner looked absolutely gorgeous in her light pink duchesse satin backless column gown by Prada and her Tiffany & Co. jewels -- that necklace is what you call a wow necklace, haha! ;)

This whole ensemble is just absolute perfection, right down to the smallest detail!
I'm so happy Anne won! :D

Jennifer Garner -

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals: Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck

I have nothing but good words for this woman...
Jennifer Garner looked flawless in her custom Gucci gown and Neil Lane jewels -- so beautiful!
And how awesome was Ben's speech?!

Amy Adams -

85th Annual Academy Awards - People Magazine Arrivals

Amy Adams always looks picture perfect! She looks good in everything! ;)
Her Oscar de la Renta gown is so breathtaking!

I hope Amy gets her turn to win an Oscar soon!

Salma Hayek -

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals: Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek looks like a goddess in her velvet Alexander McQueen gown!
The gold embellished collar adds the perfect detail to the dress. :)

Amanda Seyfried -

85th Annual Academy Awards - People Magazine Arrivals: Amanda Seyfried

Amanda looked so so so pretty in her Alexander McQueen gown -- sweet and subtle!

Sally Field -

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals: Sally Field

Sally Field is a classic beauty, so timeless!
This embroidered tulle illusion gown from Valentino's SS13 Haute Couture collection is so beautiful on her! :)

Adele -

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals: Adele

Halfway to an EGOT!!! :D
So happy for my favorite singer of all time -- she is now an Oscar winner, wow! :D

And not gonna lie, after the whole Grammys floral ensemble, I am happy to see her back in her signature black dress -- this Jenny Packham creation is pure Adele!

Jennifer Lawrence -

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals: Jennifer Lawrence

This girl is now officially my idol -- a Best Actress Oscar at the age of 22?! WOW!

I am quite unsure about this Dior Haute Couture dress, but I do love the diamond detail going around her neck. And I am loving her Chopard earrings!!!

With her big win and her graceful rise from falling on the stage steps, does it really matter what Jennifer Lawrence is wearing? ;)

Naomi Watts -

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals: Naomi Watts

I think she looks really beautiful, but I am kind of iffy about the cutout of this Armani Privé gown...

Jennifer Aniston -

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals: Jennifer Aniston

I don't think this Valentino dress is the right gown for Jennifer Aniston -- I think it looks frumpy on her.
And the hair... c'mon Jen, it's the Oscars! :/

Kristen Stewart -

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

This strapless gown by Reem Acra, the hair, the makeup -- just not working out for me. :/
Why does it look like she didn't even shower for the Oscars???

But, gotta give her kudos for still being there despite being injured! :)

Brandi Glanville -

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

One word: Ew!

I also just wanted to include a picture of the cutest expectant parents: Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum -

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Awwwwwww! :D
