“T’was a night full of sparkle…”

It’s the day after the Academy Awards, and whether you care about them or not, somewhere, somehow, your computer screen will be flooded with pictures of stunningly beautiful women in extensively radiant gowns. As well as the women, we mustn’t forget the over-the-top handsome men in their fashionable tuxedos. Following those, you are bound to come across some unfortunate celebrities in dresses that didn’t quite make the cut.

First off, let me start by congratulating Ben Affleck and team on winning “Best motion picture” with Argo. An amazing movie, I must say! Now, onto fashion! There were some clear top runners at the 2013 Academy Awards; Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Charlize Theron (that girl could walk out bald and in a garbage bag, and I’ll STILL have to pick my jaw up off the floor), but personally, there were some dresses that seem to have gotten much praise that I admittedly don’t agree with, i.e. Anne Hathaway. The back of that dress, gorgeous, and then she turns around…that front. I just found the darts were misplaced. Really? It looked like her nipples were popping out the whole time. Sorry, I just had to throw it out there. Anne Hathaway in a column dress, phenomenal! For me, it’s just that top half that seems to have hit the wrong note. Another one I couldn’t fully adapt to was Reese Witherspoon’s Louis Vuitton cobalt strapless gown. There was something about the way it sat at her hips. Along with that, I’m a huge lover of color-blocking, but I wasn’t too keen with the black strip at the top of her dress.

My preferred dresses of the night would have to go to Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, and Halle Berry (Wow!! She asked for Bond girl, and Versace delivered just that!). Did any of you stay up to watch the whole thing?? If so, what were your favourites of the night? Would love to hear what you all thought!

And now, the pictures!
