Oscars 2013: 5 looks worth talking about

25 Feb

At the 85th annual Academy Awards, m ost actresses seemed to stick to the “keep it simple” approach last night. We saw a see of white gowns with minimal color complemented by simple, if done at all, hair and makeup. Though there weren’t as many WOW moments as we got at this year’s Grammys, here are the few ladies worth noticing.

Jane Fonda in Atelier Versace

I can’t recall what was in those Jane Fonda workout tapes but it’s clear that routine gives long-lasting results!! As one of the (very) few ladies to embrace color last night Fonda showed us she’s still got it in an elegant canary yellow Versace gown.

Charlize Theron in Dior Haute Couture

South African beauty Charlize Theron took the ‘less is more’ approach with less color, less detail and less hair – and it worked in her favor! A peplum top and not too revealing cleavage slit were all the excitement this Dior Haute Couture gown needed.

Kerry Washington in Miu Miu

Django Unchained’s lead actress has been on fire with the creativity in her wardrobe lately and last night was no exception. Kerry Washington‘s nude bustier with Swarovski crystals was a minimalist accent to the floor-length coral Miu Miu gown. A little more effort in the hair would’ve been appreciated.

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture

The Silver Linings Playbook star took home two awards last night – Best Actress and Best Dressed!! Jennifer Lawrence‘s voluminous skirt on this Dior Haute Couture gown makes so much of a statement that minimal accessories were all she needed.

Zoe Saldana in Alexis Mabille

As elegant as all of the ladies were last night, they were also very safe. Zoe Saldana put a little more thought into her look with an Alexis Mabille gown with not one but THREE unique accents – a tricolor bottom (awesome!), a floral accented top (nice) and a random wide belt (why?!). She should’ve went with different shoes but that hair? Flawless!
