Glamour encapsulated the red carpet at last nights Oscars, each star arriving more beautiful than the last. “Fashion forward” was the slogan of the night as celebrities took risks with bold shapes and dramatic detailing. I was drawn to the sharp lines and futuristic feel of Charlize Theron’s Dior gown and Naomi Watts’ Armani Prive stunner. Zoe Saldana was breathtaking in Alexis Mabille Couture with the modern addition of a belt on a classic fishtail dress. Jennifer Garner stood out in color on last night’s carpet. The back of her custom Gucci gown gave the illusion of wings, as I am sure she was on cloud for husband Ben Afflect’s Argo success. Halle Berry made history with her 2002 Academy Award win and pulls out all the stops for the show she holds so dear to her heart. My jaw dropped when I first caught a glimpse of her in this on trend black and bling Versace gown, simply gorgeous.
There were so many beauties last night that narrowing down to my five favorites proved to be quite a challenge. However, these risk taking women deserve the credit and pulled off these dare devil looks flawlessly. My best dressed of the night, no question, was Naomi Watts. She has never looked more beautiful and you could see the confidence and pride radiating in her smile. She is the ultimate glamour girl.
The Oscars have proven to be a revolutionary night in fashion and last night was no exception.
