It was fashion’s night out as usual at the Academy Awards this year and a special shout out goes to Naeem Khan, an Indian born designer whose dresses were favored by both Stacy Keebler and the first lady herself, Michelle Obama. Essentially George Clooney’s eye Candy-for-the-arm, Keebler shone in a grey number worked with metal belled with black to coordinate with Clooney’s tux. The bearded George C. was still the hottest man with all the power as Argo, a film he produced, took home the best picture Oscar. His beard also went well with the Iranian (Albeit Americanized) hues of Argo. Hollywood likes it as well-coordinated and orchestrated to perfection, kind of like the Iran-Contra affair. The Oscars remain the biggest blowout to the year at the movies. The Perfection of the red carpet witnessed by millions around the world and of course fashion putting its best foot forward; stars like Naeem khan and Zuhair Murad emerging as Elie Saab becomes an established name. Here’s to the arc lights and beautiful people.
Nicole Kidman in L’Wren Scoot, the Australian actress is stunning in liquid sequins. We love that she went a different route than usual with a dramatic train.
Charlize Theron wore Christian Dior Couture. The details in this sleek, gorgeous gown have us looking twice. The V at the neckline, the beaded peplus and the train only add to an already elegant look. And that pixie! We love it!
We tip out hats to the Django Unchained actress for taking a risk on the red carpet in Miu Miu. Kery Washington’s beaded; coral dress was an oasis in a desert of pale hues. The red clutch played up all the berry tones in her look, and her easy hair and makeup let that dress steal the show.
Zoe Saldana in Alexis Mabille Couture. It’s rare to see a gown with this much detail on the best-dresses list, but the actress really pulls it off. Her simple hairdo and minimal makeup let the floral embroidery take the spotlight, while the umber detail at the hem keeps the eye moving.
