2013 Oscars Best Dressed - Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams
The Oscars have to be the ultimate excuse to dress up in the biggest and baddest gown your stylist can lay their hands on. So why do so many people dial back their look? Just look at the fabulous dresses on the red carpet at the 2010 Oscars. So few people opted for truly 'red carpet' dresses, but those who did 'wow' on the red carpet were Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain.
Amy Adams' icy grey/blue full skirt, layered Oscar de la Renta gown looked fantastic on the red carpet and I LOVE that super cute picture above where she is pulling her husband into the photo. This is the type of dress we expect, no demand, from our red carpet queens - it's unashamedly big, princessy and elegant.
Jennifer Lawrence also went big, but in that dropped waist, almost fishtail, style she's been favouring on the red carpet. This Dior dress may be big, but it's beautifully understated in colour and detail. The only thing I wasn't sold on was the back-to-front necklace she wore down her back. But she can still do no wrong in my eyes!
Jessica Chastain is on a freakin' role - she's been getting top marks on all the red carpets recently and although she was one of the first on the red carpet at the Oscars, I was thinking about her look long after. It fit her perfectly and she does statuesque column shapes so well she looks perfectly relaxed and confident (she knows she looks fab!). The shimmering rose gold shade of the embellished Armani gown is perfect with her skin tone and hair too.
