Fashion Week Favorites: Best Dressed at 2014 Oscars

While the overcast, rainy weather threatened to put a damper on the celebrity arrivals at the 2014 Oscars last night, we were pleasantly surprised to see the clouds part for some seriously gorgeous red carpet fashions, along with memorable moments during the award show as well, brought to you by the genius host, Ellen DeGeneres…can we say “selfie”?

Hello gorgeous! While Kate Hudson was one of the last to walk the red carpet at Oscars, she made her impact in a truly memorable way, wearing a bejeweled Atelier Versace gown and cape.

12 Years of Slave Best Actress Winner Lupita Nyong’o earned her spot on the best dressed list once again, with a Nairobi blue custom Prada number inspired by champagne bubbles and matching headband.

Adding a needed pop of color to the Oscars, Jennifer Lawrence looked red hot in Dior. Given her history of clumsiness, Lawrence admitted she even “did a stair test” in the gown before the event. (see her 2013 ‘best dressed’ look, also in Dior)

Excuse us while we pick our jaws up off the floor. The ‘Blue Jasmine’ actress Cate Blanchett gave serious credibility to the evening’s ‘sparkly neutrals’ trend, in an Armani Prive floor-length gown.

Making an appearance in our red carpet recap once again, Charlize Theron knows how to rock $15 million in Harry Winston jewels and a seriously deep v-neckline gown, this time in Dior. (see her 2013 ‘best dressed look’)

If the stunning fashions weren’t enough to keep you entertained for hours, how about the hilarious monologue and moments by host Ellen DeGeneres!

Pizza, anyone? Ellen surprised everyone by staying true to her word and delivering pizza straight to the celebrities in their seats. Brad Pitt helped hand out plates, while Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Jared Leto and Harrison Ford enjoyed a slice (or two). We are guessing that pizza guy will be adding this to his resume.

Let’s take a selfie. See, celebrities are just like us, even at the most glamorous awards show of the year. Ellen organized a quick selfie pic (it was Meryl’s first selfie!) to break a Twitter RT record and in the process, actually broke Twitter. The selfie became the most re-tweeted picture ever, hitting over 2 million retweets! Hats off to you Ellen, well deserved!

#lupitaslipbalm: Ellen later returned to the A-list crowd to collect money for the pizza in what else, Pharrell’s hat. Best Actress winner Lupita dropped in her favorite lipbalm, which Ellen proceeded to put in her pocket, claiming it would be worth something. No surprise here, #lupitaslipbalm quickly became a popular trending topic on Twitter, even resulting in it’s own Twitter page. In case you were wondering, her lipbalm was Clarins, and it’s already close to sold out across the country.

Fashion Week Favorites: 2013 Oscars Red Carpet

The Oscars are mesmerizing and a bit sad at the same time, mainly because it reminds me of the end of an amazing season of awards shows and their stunning red carpets.  That being said, the dynamic duo (aka Tina Fey and Amy Poehler) would have been a welcomed hosting sight, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself, watching the hours of red carpet coverage and endless Twitter chatter surrounding the big night.

White was definitely a standout color trend on the red carpet this year. While I was a bit surprised at the lack of color, there were definitely many fashion moments that stood out as our clear “favorites”:

As the new face of Dior, Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence wowed in an ivory gown from the designer's Spring '13 Couture collection.
