Hello!! It's been a while since I last blogged (more like a lifetime!) but I have decided to make my return and what better night than Oscars night. So without further ado, I have picked not 10, not 12, not 15, BUT 20 of my favourite dresses (in no particular order) from the red carpet. These are just my personal opinion and I would love to hear what you all thought so feel free to leave the names of your favourites.
1. Amanda Seyfried
Amanda always has such striking looks and she hasn't disappointed tonight. The detailed pattern means for little accessories.
2. Halle Berry
The symmetry of the stripes give Halle all her curves in the right places. Again, no need for much accessorising with so much sparkle on one dress. Dazzling!
3. Georgina Chapman
Such beautiful embellishment on the top of Georgina's gown. Her clutch is adorable.
4. Salma Hayek
Sassy Salma does it again! Her silhouette looks amazing and the gold trimmings make it oh so glamorous.
5. Sandra Bullock
Oh how very Downton. This 1920's style dress is so flattering on Sandra's slight frame. Something I'd definitely wear.
6. Kelly Ripa
I love how different this is to all the other red carpet dresses. It's a little bit more laid back to all the other looks but Kelly pulls it off perfectly.
7. Anne Hathaway
It may look pretty and simple from the front but the detail is all in the back. Since getting my hair all cut off, she's become somewhat of an icon of mine. She just can't seem to do any wrong, even when flashing her lady parts to the world.
8. Kelley Phleger
Actor Don Johnson's wife seems to steal some of his limelight in this elegant and slightly Kate Middleton's wedding dress-esque number. It fits her tiny frame like a dream.
9. Corinne Bishop
I adore the colour of this dress. Corinne wears it with such simplicity.
Adele brings her classic style to the Oscars. Her hair and make up just defines her signature 60's look.
11. Naomi Watts
Naomi's dress has a unique and slightly futuristic cut to it. The shimmery silver and pinned back hair really brings out her eyes.
12. Kerry Washington
Such a delicious colour and the little bow at the front makes this look even more sweet. The simple hair and lack of jewellery doesn't deter from the intricate detailing on the bust.
13. Zoe Saldana
The belt detailing is to die for. Everything is super cute; the shoes, the neckline, the way Zoe wears it with such a laid back ease.
14. Helena Bonham Carter
This looks like it was just made for Helena. The dark colour and layered skirt give it a witchy look but the sneaky little bow brings in a dash of girlishness.
15. Jane Fonda
Showing that at 75 years old, you're never too old to rock the neon's Jane dazzles in this bright number. The square shoulders just ooze 80's nostalgia.
16. Jennifer Hudson
Jennifer looks fab and confident. This gown hugs her curves and I love the brilliant blue colour too.
17. Alicia Vikander
Another Downton inspired gown in a wonderful powder blue. The thin belt helps to break up the exquisite lace outfit.
18. Sally Field
Quite possibly my favourite look of the night. It can sometimes be hard to stand out in red on a red carpet but Sally does it with such elegance. This dress has a vintage Valentino air to it. I am in love!
19. Robin Roberts
Not only is blue my favourite colour to wear but I'm also a sucker for velvet, so double kudo's to Robin. The twisted neckline gives this classic look a modern spin. The drop waist is also extremely flattering.
20. Kristin Chenoweth
The last look of the night comes from Kristin Chenoweth. She may be tiny but she brought a big presence in this outstanding number. A dazzling smile to match the dazzling embellishment.
So that's it, my top 20. I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you don't agree with my picks, well everyone has different tastes but I'd love to hear what you thought. Feel free to leave a comment below and I'll reply as soon as possible. Thanks for reading!! Hope you all had a wonderful Oscars night, I've posted my highlight of the show below, Les Miserables gives me goosebumps every time.
