Oscars 2015 Get-ups and Dresses – Hot or Not?
The year’s biggest and most glamourous awards show just concluded a few hours ago, and they have been full of style, glitz and grace with subtle slits carrying the show this year. Here is your guide to the hottest (and not-so-hot) Oscar fashion which stood out for us – for both, well-dressed and red carpet misses.
Sparkling in an Elie Saab gown with a low-cut neckline and a long train with beads running down, Jennifer Lopez was the very model of how a real-life princess should dress up in today’s world. Her tightly tied back hair-do went along well with the nude-coloured dress, as did her frosty make-up and glittering jewellery.
Hot or Not – Hot.
The Into the Woods actress looked absolutely gorgeous in a custom-designed Thakoon salmon pink dress with a stylishly jewelled neckline and a subtle slit below her bust. The wind-swept hair-do put that rosy blush into focus! Anna ruled the night with a sultry black liner making her eyes stand out and pale pink light make-up – add to that those massive vintage-inspired earrings, and the fact that she chose not to pair this get-up with a bracelet – she really won over fashion critics this year!
Hot or Not – HOT!
While we always love the simple blond waves Reese Witherspoon seems to be sporting in award shows since her last Oscar appearance, her Tom Ford dress was more a miss this time around. The elegant white silhouettes her figure very gracefully, yet those sharp bands of black are way too distracting! Almost gives her dress a filled-inside-the-border look!
Hot or Not – Meh.
Gotta admit girls, we loved that leg slit! Match it with that jewelled single-shoulder strap; Dakota Johnson is totally rocking this red Saint Laurent dress a la Fifty Shades of Grey style. Her sleek low pony tail with those sexy unstructured piece-y bangs added to her sexiness quotient… and her date for the night, Melanie Griffith, couldn’t stop gushing about how gracefully her daughter was carrying that bright red lip and bold brows!
Hot or Not – Red hot!
One of the most talked about actresses of the night, Jones made sure she got into the highlights for the right reasons. The Theory of Everything star dazzled us with her Cinderella-esque Alexander McQueen silvery-grey gown, with the entire corset showing off a beaded flowery look. The dainty actress paired this look with a sleek swept-up hair-do, carrying her untraditional bangs wonderfully well! Her makeup as well had been done in soft nude shades with a dark eyeliner, adding a shimmery glow to the entire get-up.
Hot or Not – Hot.
Looking like an Armani Prive’s experiment to put forward uncomplicated chic fashion gone wrong, Naomi Watts hit the carpet in a black, grey and white shaded ensemble of what looked like brick graffiti, supporting the dress with a metallic-looking bandeau underneath. Even though the gown hugged her curves in the right places, she wasn’t able to make a splash in the well-dressed category tonight. Still, she deserves an applause for the well-done make up and sporting a bold lip with that dress!
Hot or Not – Weird, more like it.
One of those women who are always so predictably gorgeous looking that it is no longer surprising, Cate Blanchett once again stunned at the red carpet in a chic Maison Margiela black gown and bright turquoise necklace, along with tightly swept up hair to complete the look. We actually adored how the flyaways are complementing the ripped-off shoulders there – that’s styling done perfect! Then again, that’s what we expect from Blanchett anyway!
Hot or Not – Hot. Never a question when it’s her.
Peplum much, eh, Kerry? Definitely not the sort of glamour Hollywood, and especially the Academy Awards are famous for. While that beautifully falling champagne skirt can be considered a win, the top is taking away all glory from her. Still, we liked her deeply parted lob – it went well with her nude make-up.
Hot or Not – Nope.
Johansson is likely a fan of shades of green, given that she’s been seen sporting such coloured dresses on her last few appearances. This time around, she hit the carpet in a Versace Atelier gown, which though had the potential to look dazzling on its own, gave her a very drab look when paired with that huge sparkling necklace which almost destroyed the beautiful neckline of the dress for us. Neither could we find it in us to admire that Piaget ear cuff matched with the side-shaved look.
Hot or Not – Not! Might be if she took off that necklace!
Lupita Nyong’o has such beautiful glowing skin that this custom-made Calvin Klein collection dress could only add to the glamour. It is rumoured to have been studded with about 6,000 natural pearls – must have been a weight only this Academy war veteran could have pulled off so elegantly! Her close cropped hair as well as those gorgeous pearl drops upped the glam quotient quite high to place her high up the best-dressed category of the night!
Hot or Not – Definitely hot!
