Red carpet fashion shines at 2013 Oscars

Millions tuned in to the 85th Academy Awards on Sunday night and not just to see who won.

The Oscars is considered one of the biggest fashion shows in the world, and the red carpet prior to the ceremony is highly anticipated.

It’s the talk of the night. Fashion gurus, and even those not so interested in fashion, can’t help but to comment on the celebrities’ dresses, accessories, hair styles and makeup.

In case you missed your turn, here’s a recap.

Best dressed

Among the top “best dressed” are Amy Adams, Jessica Chastain, Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence.

Pale shades definitely dominated the carpet this year, along with simple makeup and accessories.

The most worn designer of the evening was Armani Prive.

Amy Adams looked like royalty in an Oscar de la Renta gown, and Charlize Theron “wow-ed” in her white Dior Haute Couture dress.

And who would of thought that someone could pull off a monotone dress with a pale skin tone and strawberry blonde hair?

Jessica Chastain proved to everyone that it’s possible in her Armani Prive dress and Harry Winston jewels.

Her red lips were the perfect touch to bring the outfit together and to accomplish her desire to look “old Hollywood glam.” She looked undeniably flawless.

Jennifer Lawrence, winner of Best Actress for the “Silver Lining Playbook,” looked stunning in her Dior Haute Couture gown.

Most would suspect that such a dress would look too bridal, but Lawrence pulled it off.

Maybe it was because of her total ensemble with pulled back hair and simple jewelry, or maybe it was because of her contagious, light-hearted and down right funny personality.

Best hair

Best hair goes to Reese Witherspoon who credited its shine and volume to her recent pregnancy.

Among the most popular hairstyles was the bun. Whether it was a double knot, loose, braided or twisted, this style was spotted up and down the entire red carpet.

Best accessories

Accessories this year were very minimal, which was appropriate in most cases.

With all the strapless dresses, a simple necklace made the ensemble elegant and sophisticated.

Some stars went for the bare neckline, such as Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Chastain.

Best surprises

Helen Hunt surprised everyone in her H&M dress that is part of their new going-green line.

It was certainly a bold move on a night where every star is clad in the most prestigious designers, but it certainly got H&M quite a bit of publicity.

And who didn’t fall in love with Quvenzhané Wallis, otherwise known as “little Q?”

At 9 years old, she is the youngest nominee for an award at the Oscars.

Little Q flaunted a Giorgio Armani dress that she loved because it was “fluffy and sparkly,” but the best part of her look had to be her dog purse.

Fashion on the red carpet never disappoints, and this year was no exception.
