Best Dressed: Academy Awards Edition

Let me start off by saying that there were a lot of beautifully dressed people at the Academy Awards. It was extremely hard to make this list. The majority of the celebrities brought their “A” game. However, here are my top 10 favorites from the special night, and this is in no particular order.
Robin Roberts

Robin Roberts: She looked simply amazing and radiant. I absolutely loved her dress, and blue accessories. This color is very rich, and deep. This was a great choice!

Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek: The neck piece on this dress is gorgeous. It definitely brought this otherwise simple dress to the next level. She looked very elegant.

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Halle Berry: It should be no surprise that Halle is on this list. Her dress was on point! I’m in love with this design! It was very unique, and also exuded a lot of sexiness.

Kelly Rowland: Kelly is having some year. Every time she hits the stage or carpet, she is dressed to impress. She looked wonderful.

Naomi Watts

Naomi Watts: She killed this dress. I am a fan of the one sleeve look. It was well-fitting, and very different compared to the other dresses.

J Hud

Jennifer Hudson: J Hud’s complete look was amazing; everything worked together.She’s worked the bang and long tresses. She looked beautiful!

Jane Fonda

Jane Fonda: Jane Fonda definitely put some of her young counterparts to shame. The yellow fits her very well, and made her a standout. She looked absolutely stunning!

Stacy Kiebler

Stacy Kiebler: Kiebler’s entire look is awesome. I loved her dress, and her old-school hairstyle. The black accent belt really brought this dress together.

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba: Alba’s look screamed classy and elegant. She was simply beautiful in this coral dress. The busy necklace and clutch definitely completed the look without offsetting anything.

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez: While her dress may not have been as glamorous as the other guests, I must admit that I really liked her choice. I absolutely loved the design on the upper part of the dress, and I liked how the tulle was cut asymmetrical.

Although, she didn’t make the official list, I think FLOTUS, Michelle Obama, looked beautiful! It was a nice surprise to see that she was an award presenter.

Now, I’d have to say that my least favorite person of the night was Anne Hathaway. She is so boring! O-M-Gee!

10 Best Dressed at the 2013 Grammy Awards

The best part about the Grammy Awards is being able to check out the photo galleries to see what was worn on the red carpet. I don’t normally watch award shows, and yesterday was no different. However, I do look for photo galleries to see what the celebrities decided to step out in. With that said, I’ve come up with my list of the 10 Best Dressed at the 2013 Grammy Awards (in no particular order).

 

1. RihannaRihanna

Say what you will about Rihanna (and I will too), but she looked stunning. Everything looked wonderful, from her makeup to the dress. She can get away with any hairstyle and color, and almost any outfit.

2. NasNas

Nas looked quite dapper in his gold, black and white. As far as I’m concerned, he was the best dressed male. At least from what I’ve seen in the photo galleries. I really loved the jacket, and pairing it with the black pants suit him very well.

3. Kelly Osborne

I really liked Kelly’s dress because of the cutouts, and the simplicity of the dress. It was well-fitting, and she wore it wonderfully. However, I will say that I hate that hair color.

4. Taylor SwiftTaylor

Swift always dresses to impress for awards shows. So, the Grammys were no different. I really liked the cutouts, and the flow of the dress. It was very elegant.

5. Kelly RowlandThe 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

Well, Kelly is on a roll. She was definitely talked about a lot after her Super Bowl appearance, and now there is more to talk about. Normally, I could careless for dresses that expose a lot, but her dress exposed in the right places. Although it was risky, she looked gorgeous.

6. SolangeThe 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

I absolutely loved Solange’s hair, and the dress was beautiful! I didn’t really care for the studded heels. Although, I liked the orange and emerald-green paired together, it just seemed a bit overboard with the studs.

7. Estelle

estelleI really liked Estelle’s self-designed two-piece. It was funky, and unique. I really liked the colors she chose, as well as the shape of the skirt. I think she stepped out the box, and took a risk. She didn’t disappoint.

8. Carrie UnderwoodThe 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

Carrie Underwood looked wonderful. I was really impressed by her black gown. I liked the top half the most. The dress was very detailed, and form-fitting. She looked great

9. Justin Timberlake  jt

I really liked JT’s choice of attire, especially the black and white shoes and handkerchief. Everything flowed quite nicely. While a lot of men wear black to the Grammy’s, his combination stood out to me.

10. Jay Z

I don’t really care for Jay Z, but I can’t deny that his ensemble was very nice. I especially liked how his jacket was cut, and how the lapels were the main focus. Good look, Jay Z.

 

The Grammys usually bring a lot of highs and lows when it comes to what people wear. This year was no different. So, I had to ask myself what was Beyoncé, Adele, J Lo, and Dream thinking.? Beyoncé did not look the part. She looked too casual for the red carpet. I did like her top, but that outfit should have been saved for a less important event. Adele’s dress was out there. It looked like curtain fabric, or fabric on a sofa from a few decades ago. J Lo’s leg dress was blah. There was nothing to it. At least when Angelina Jolie showed the leg, the dress was elegant and left an impression. I think Jay Z hit it on the nail when he said that the Dream got his hat from the swap shop. That pretty much described his whole outfit. 🙂
