The Oscars is the biggest night for actors, actresses and designers to show off their stuff. The red carpet is always fun to see what color different actresses chose. Being a formal event, nothing too crazy was on the red carpet. Mostly neutrals, blacks, a couple reds, blues, greens and corals gowns were worn for the 85th Annual Academy Awards red carpet.
While you would think the most popular person during the Oscars is the person who wins, it’s actually Oscar, the award. Not everyone gets to win Oscar or even touch him. According to the Oscars, “it measures just 13½ inches high, the Oscar statuette stands tall as the motion picture industry’s greatest honor. Officially named the Academy Award® of Merit, the Oscar is given in recognition of the highest level of achievement in movie-making.”
Even though Oscar is very popular, the Oscars Red Carpet dresses are right up there with him. I would love to be able to remark on the men’s wear, but it’s always very hard to remark how well the men look, because let’s be honest, there’s only so many different ways you can style a tuxedo. All the men looked great though. They clean up very well and looked very dapper.
Let’s get down to business, what were the women wearing at the Oscars 2013 Red Carpet. All the dresses looked great.
Catherine Zeta Jones walked the red carpet with husband, Michael Douglas both looking stunning. Wearing a very simple makeup look and wearing a Zuhair Murad Oscar dress. She also performed a song from Chicago as part of a tribute to musicals past and present.
Naomi Watts wore a silver glittery dress by Amarmi Prive that had a section cut out that shaped around her upper left chest and shoulder. Truly amazing how well she could walk around without falling out.
Best Actress nominee Jessica Chastain hit the red carpet wearing a stunning bodice Armani gown. She said, “I chose it because to me it was a throwback to old Hollywood.” She added, “It’s a very ‘Happy birthday, Mr. President’ dress.” She may have won the best Oscars Red Carpet dress.
Amy Adams had on a gorgeous dove grey feathered bottom gown from Oscar de la Renta.
Reese Witherspoon, who presented an Oscars award wore a Louis Vuitton royal blue dress. She wore her hair in vintage waves, which is very stylish and formal. Although the top half of the dress does little to flatter her figure, in my opinion.
Zoe Saldana in a sleek white dress with flower embellishments across the chest, a bow along the side of her waist, and a grey and black edging on the train.
Django Unchained actress Kerry Washington walked the Oscars red carpet in a pink dress with stoned embellished bodice.
The youngest ever Best Actress Oscar nominee, Quvenzhane Wallis, was all smiles when she arrived at the Oscars 2013 Red Carpet. Wearing a stunning royal blue dress, the nine-year-old also brought her favorite cuddly dog to the award show and her mom and sister.
Jennifer Lawrence had on a billowing Dior Haute Couture dress for the Oscars 2013.
Olivia Munn added some color to the bland Oscars red carpet 2013 in a backless embellished with gold scarlett dress.
Anne Hathaway was in Prada. Which was a little ironic because she had starred in the movie called The Devil Wears Prada. The movie must have made an impact on her because she revealed she had only decided to wear her Oscar dress three hours before having to leave for the award show. How stressful, but she looked stunning.
Helen Hunt revealed her Oscar dress is from H&M! But wait, there’s a reason for that. The nominated-actress is supporting the store’s Global Green campaign, dedicated to fighting climate change. While she may be keeping it simple with her forest green H&M gown, it’s complimented by $700,000 worth of diamonds.
Amanda Seyfried wore an Alexander McQueen Oscar gown with a halter top. She told the host of the Oscars Red carpet that “I can’t sit down and I feel like my organs are being pulled out of my body slowly.” The magic and hate of a corset. Her hair was done in a gorgeous updo.
Naomie Harris turned up to the Oscars red carpet in a gown made out of recycled sweet wrappers and zips. It was designed by a student who won a competition to make an eco-friendly dress.
Jennifer Gardner wore a beautiful plum strapless Oscar dress made by Gucci with a ruffled back that was made especially made for her.
Halle Berry was in a gorgeous crystal embellished long sleeved v-cut dress by Versace.
