2013 Academy Awards Red Carpet

About twelve hours ago, the Oscars were running over as usual.  As I watched the ceremony, I was busy collecting pictures of the best dressed.  I've compiled a list of 12 stars with 13 different looks that I deem the best.  There were a lot of fails on the red carpet, but I'm still trying to burn the images of Kristen Stewart and Fan Bingbing from my mind, so we're going to ignore those.

Let's start, shall we?

Best-Dressed of the Night

Norah Jones in Tadeshi Shoji
Absolutely stunning.  She's a jazz singer who performed last night (great voice, too), and the Art Deco look of this dress is parfait for a jazz singer.

Runner-up for Best Dressed

Catherine Zeta-Jones in Zuhair Murad
I'll admit this may just be because I love gold and sparkly dresses (thanks, Taylor Swift) but Catherine truly looks stunning.

Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta
A ballgown must be two things: dramatic and awesome.  Amy's dress is both of those things.  This is a much better color for her than her Golden Globes dress, to boot.

Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive
Jessica said she was influenced by old Hollywood glamour, and did she ever bring it!  I love the intricate pattern on the dress, and it's a surprisingly good color for her.  Plus it's a good compliment to the red carpet.

Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen
I have practically no words to describe how beautiful she looks.  Except that she looks beautiful.

Jennifer Garner in Gucci
She and Taylor Swift should have a purple party because they both look fabulous in plum and eggplant.  I also like Jennifer's hair and jewelry.

Quvenzhane Wallis in Armani Junior
She's the youngest Best Actress nominee ever.  Crazy, huh?  She's adorable and dressed just like a 9-year-old at a big event should.  Beautiful dress and her signature doggy purse is dressed in a tutu and tiara.  Points for that.

Rashida Jones in Vivienne Westwood at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party
It sparkles.  It has a draped neckline.  She looks awesome.  That is all.

Stacy Keibler in Naeem Khan
Ah, much better than that mess of a look at the Golden Globes.  Her whole look is practically making me drool.  I want that dress.  Except it would probably look terrible on me, haha.

Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta (again) at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party
Amy Adams in so awesome, she made it into this list twice.  This is a bad picture but one awesome dress.  It reminds me of the 1920s and '30s and a bit of the Delphos style dress that Mariano Fortuny created.

Jennifer Hudson in Roberto Cavalli
Ooh, yes, a beautiful dress.  Oh, great, I just rhymed.  Jennifer just needs different shoes.  Not loving the color of those.

Now these last two are a bit sub-par, but with a few changes, I think they would garner A+'s.

Zoe Saldana in Alexis Mabille
I love every bit of this dress except for that giant bow on her hip and that basically ruins the whole thing.  Oh, yeah, and she needs brighter lipstick.  Maybe a deep maroon or burgundy, or red.

Gloria Reuben in ???
She's officially invited to Jennifer Garner and Taylor Swift's pleasant purple party.  I'm just not sure how I feel about her hair, or the two different shades of purple.  Stick with the darker one, my dear.

And that's it!  Another Academy Awards has come and gone.  Do you agree with my top 13?  Did you have other favorites?  Who tops your best dressed list?  Sound off in the comments!


  1. Zoe,s dress is cute and unique. I also love the color and the color of the pic above hers, the navy blue with sparkles. So pretty. :)

  2. Please do a worst dressed!!

    1. Hmm, I'll have to think about that. :) I've already got my next blog post planned, and it is as far from a worst dressed list as one could get.
