Pantone’s color of the year might be emerald, but for the 2013 Oscars, pale was absolutely the color (or lack of color) of the year!! The pales ranged from silvers to beige to pink undertone and all kinds of beautiful in between. The other trend that hit the red carpet in a big way was the metallics. Statements were being made with blacks with pewter, blacks and silvers, golds, and so much more. There were a few who went with the bold colors but for those that did their presence was commanded!
The Academy Awards are a time to showcase the work of Hollywood’s actors and actresses. More importantly, its a time to shine a light on the true glitz and glamour of Hollywood and this years Oscars were certainly no exception. We saw dresses that sizzled the red carpet and those that may have been better off swept under it!
Here are SSM’s Picks for Oscars 2013 Best and Worst Dressed:
Kerry Washington when against the trend this year and came in the oh so hot color of spring, coral Miu Miu Gown. We love the simple belt and embellished bust and cannot get enough of the darker colored coral/orange clutch and shoes!
We loved George’s arm candy, Stacy Keibler, who marveled in metallic wearing Naeem Khan!
Sandra stunned in this lacy sheath dress by Elie Saab
Jennifer Garner in wine colored Gucci was simple and elegant and the necklace made the look.
Naomi Watts magnified the metallics in this cutout form fitting Giorgio Armani.
We think Daryl Hannah was channeling her 1984 mermaid character in Splash with this coral “mermaid” shaped gown. Its more of a sink than a swim!
Kelly Rowland in the A-symetrical Donna Karan Atelier was a bit too choppy of a look and the top looked like it may have a wardrobe malfunction.
The typical best dressed Anne Hathaway disappointed in this pale pink Prada. Questioning A.) what’s going on with the bust area(rhymes with ripples)? B.) why the necklace with such a high neckline?
And then there is Fan Bingbing! Beautiful shade of pink, but there is a whole lot of pink for not a whole lot of lady.
Lastly, there appears to be just a bit too much going on in the neck area of Salma Hayak’s dress and leaves us distracted!
Who were some of your favorites of the night?
