Here are my favorite Oscar fashion moments in random order:
Camila Alves glowed on the red carpet. McConaughey wore a black tux from Dolce & Gabbana and a bad tan!!! While Alves paired her Kaufmanfranco gown with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry… Her skin, hair and make-up were just perfection… This is a perfect example of the woman wearing the dress and not the other way round!
Hilary Swank’s long, extremely tight-fitting blue gown by Guy Laroche showed off her beautiful figure in 2005…. No one could have looked better in that dress!
Halle Berry won the Oscar in 2002 for her performance in Monster’s Ball, but she also triumphed on the red carpet in this stunning Elie Saab creation…. and put him along with other Arab designers in the map!
It was a memorable moment for me personally when Sharon Stone wore her husband’s crisp white shirt to the Oscars in 1998. She teamed it with a Vera Wang lavender silk skirt and proved that style is confidence…. She never looked better!
In 2000 Angelina stunned the media with her gothic, almost vampiric, vibe at the Oscars. Those days are thankfully long gone and it seems that she is getting classier and more beautiful as she ages. I loved this look simply because It is really hard to stun a crowd with a simple black dress but Angielina did it and did it well…. Her gorgeous Lorraine Schwartz emerald earrings and matching cocktail ring really pulled together this look, and made the plain black dress by Elie Saab come to life.
Natalie Portman topped the best dressed lists at the 2005 Oscars with this stunning silver Lanvin gown… I remember that moment because that was the moment I fell in love with Alber Elbaz!!!
Catherine Zeta-Jones wore this fire-red Versace in 1999… I fell in love with red dresses ever since!…
Jackie Kennedy first wore this Valentino dress in 1965. And heads literally turned when Jennifer Lopez wore it (and by it I mean the actual dress that Jackie wore!) to the Oscars in 2003…
Gwyneth Paltrow was compared to Grace Kelly in 1998 when she wore this pink princess Ralph Lauren gown and her own diamond necklace that her father got her…. I fell in love with that necklace (similar to the one above).
By 2001 many celebrities were raiding vintage stores for the statement glamorous gown… but no one pulled it off with more panache than Julia Roberts did at the Oscars. Roberts chose this Valentino gown (originally made for the 1992 couture collection) from the Valentino archive. The simple style was hailed as a red carpet classic and helped to popularize vintage clothing.
