Oscars 2013: Our best and worst dressed round-up
Well, another Oscars has come and gone and Gemma, our Oscar-obsessed ed-in-chief, has been up until the small hours of the night bringing you all the latest from the red carpet. And what a job she has done *applause*. Of course it wouldn't be an Oscars ceremony without our usual round-up of the best and worst dressed. Not that there were too many that fell into the latter group - that m'dears would be way too much fun. Jokes!
Amongst our favourites were Jennifer Lawrence, who not only bagged the top gong for Best Actress but managed to overcome the embarrassment of tripping over her giant Dior Couture gown while accepting said award with grace and humour. Joining her on our best dressed list was Naomi Watts, who knocked it out of the park in a futuristic style Armani Prive number. Charlize Theron was another one who wowed in her white, structured Dior Couture gown.
Perhaps a little controversially, I've also added Olivia Munn to our favourites group. While some have called her Marchesa creation a little 'costumey,' I think she showed real courage to take on such a bold design that wasn't (a) pastel (b) fishtail and (c) safe. While I'm on the topic of controversial, I must admit I only just admitted Anne Hathaway and her slightly meh Prada gown to our best dressed group. I really ummed and ahhed over whether to include her at all, and frankly if it wasn't for her channelling Audrey Hepburn I may have left her out all together. "Oooh!" I hear you say.
Now I move on to the worst dressed from this year's Oscars. Although there weren't too many terrible choices, making the list was Renee Zellweger. Not that there was anything particularly awful about her Carolina Herrera dress, the gold colour just didn't do much for her except show off that enviable figure. The same could be said for Nicole Kidman, who I expected more of especially at the Oscars but who I ultimately decided to leave off this list. I also wasn't a fan of Kelly Rowland's strange angular Donna Karan Atelier number, nor Jane Fonda's acid yellow 80s power shoulder ensemble. Showing way too much flesh was Brandi Glanville (don't worry, I had to Google her too) while one of my favourite funny ladies failed to fire. Melissa McCarthy's custom David Meister Signature gown left her drowning in draped grey silk and too much hairspray. Deary me.
