Oscars 2013: My Favourite Looks Of The Night

There were some amazing looks on the red carpet at last night's oscars. I really wanted to share my favourite looks with you so here it goes.

Winner of the Best Actress accolade, Jennifer Lawrence, looked radiant in Dior Haute Couture. The structured bodice showed off the star's gorgeous figure, whilst the volumous train added that much needed red carpet drama. The pale hue highlighted Jennifer's flawless complexion and the minimal Chopard jewels, including a beautful back drop necklace, added a grown up sophistication. Easily the best dressed of the night!

Les Misérables star, and Best Supporting Actress winner Anne Hathaway looked sleek and chic in a pale Prada number. The column style enhanced Anne's elfin beauty, whilst the risqué back and bodice made a real statement and added that "wow" factor. I particularly liked the draped obi tie and Tiffany & Co. jewels. Very Audrey - loved it!

Best Actress nominee and Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain brought sexiness and old Hollywood glamour to the red carpet in Armani Privé. The rose gold hue was quite an unusual choice for Jessica. We have been used to seeing her rocking jewel tones on many occassions, however, the colour really worked on her and completed the vintage vibe of the look. The sequening/beading on the gown added a nice depth and stopped the dress looking too flat and wishy-washy. The scarlet lip added the perfect finishing touch.

Sally Field, star of Lincoln and Best Supporting Actress nominee, looked super elegant in a dramatic Valentino Haute Couture gown. The ruched bodice highlighted Sally's slim waist and the sheer sleeves flattered her arms. The silk chiffon created the most gorgeous drape and movement, whilst the ruffles and pleating added volume and bounce. The Judith Leiber clutch added that much needed oscar sparkle. This was such a ladylike look and I loved that Sally outshone the juniors.

It was all about the details with Avatar star Zoe Saldana's Alexis Mabille Couture dress. The intricately layered bodice looked exquisite and the ombre train brought back fond memories of the magnificent Givenchy couture gown she wore to the 82nd Academy Awards. The cinched in belt accentuated her tiny waist and the figure hugging shape showed off her athletic physique. The Neil Lane hand hardware added a youthful and contemporary edge. This was such a classy yet cool look.

Last but not least is actress, fashion favourite and front-row fixture Fan Bingbing. Unlike many red carpet goers who opted for pale pastel tones, Fan chose to shock in shocking pink Marchesa. The shocking pink made such an impact against her porcelain skin and the matching statement earrings, bracelet and lip colour added a nice touch. Her sleek and simplistic high bun hair ensured the gown was the main attraction. I really liked the asymmetrical sweetheart neckline. It reminded me of Carrie Bradshaw's wedding dress by Vivienne Westwood.

There really were some beauties on the red carpet at last night's oscars. I can't wait to see what next year's will have in store!
