Naomi Watts in Armani Privé
After an epic 3.5 hour Academy Awards ceremony tonight and red carpet coverage that was almost as long, the 2013 awards season has sadly come to an end. With stunning silver screen stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts and Jessica Chastain stepping out in incredible gowns by the likes of Armani Privé, Dior Haute Couture and Oscar de la Renta, however, this year’s awards season definitely went out with a sartorial bang.
Our favourite leading ladies certainly saved their best frocks for last, with most topping their looks at the Golden Globes and SAG Awards. From Kerry Washington in pink Miu Miu to Stacy Keibler in metallic Naeem Khan, these are our top 10 best dressed from the 2013 Oscars. Who made your list?

It’s official, ladies and gents! Sunday marks the beginning of this year’s awards season in Hollywood, and we’re excitedly counting down the days until the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler-hosted Golden Globes. After that, it’s going to be a non-stop red carpet glam fest as our favourite stars attend the Globes, the SAGs and finally the Oscars.
This year’s batch of nominees include leading ladies who not only have serious acting chops, but impeccable style to match (or, at least, the most talented stylists on their payrolls). We’ve rounded up the 10 actresses we’re most excited to see on the awards show red carpets this season, along with our favourite look of theirs to date.
From stars of the silver screen like Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence to those who’ve graced our televisions this past year like Claire Danes and Julianne Moore, we can’t wait to cover their sartorial choices over the next couple of months. Valentino, Dior, Elie Saab…gorgeous gowns are coming to a glamourous red carpet near you. Stay tuned!

The end of a year always brings about an overabundance of ‘best of’ lists, so of course we had to contribute one of our own. Putting together a list of the top ten red carpet looks of 2011 was a surprisingly easy task. These 9 women – 8 actresses and 1 real life princess – and their 10 ensembles (Emma Stone is listed twice!) were clear standouts in our eyes. So much so that we’re not even going to bother to explain our choices – these stunning looks speak for themselves. Plus, we’re still recovering from our holiday turkey feast.
From Anne Hathaway‘s sequin Armani Privé to Cate Blanchett‘s lavender Givenchy, these are the types of clothes that make us wish that we too were Hollywood actresses or fairy tale princesses whose job descriptions included gracing red carpets in couture. But, alas, we are not…yet. So until such day that fact changes, we’ll settle for daydreaming about strutting our stuff in January Jones‘ gold lace gown by Carolina Herrera and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge‘s blush sequin dress by Jenny Packham instead.

My day job kept me so busy last week that I was deprived of the pleasure of being excited for haute couture week. I caught tweets here and there about all that I was missing, but didn’t get a chance to catch up until this past weekend. Viewing all the couture collection photos on Style.com back-to-back gave me a different perspective than usual – it was as if the shows ran one after the other in the span of an hour. Being able to directly compare the collections like that made the standouts very clear in my mind.
Unlike the Fall 2010 couture shows, my heart stopped only twice this season. The look on the left is from Armani Privé’s futuristic collection, while the Japanese-inspired look on the right was sent out by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy. These two looks couldn’t be more different from each other; one is so fierce and sci-fi, while the other is very delicate and serene, but both made my jaw drop. I can’t wait to see if either of these looks makes it on a red carpet in the next few months!

There was a time, I will confess, when I thought Anne Hathaway was a terrible actor who probably wouldn’t amount to much as a Hollywood actress; this was around the time I made the unfortunate decision to watch The Princess Diaries. That first impression stuck with me for some time – I remember questioning why she, of all available actresses, was cast in The Devil Wears Prada. It seems though, that in the last few years, she’s proven herself to be quite adept at her craft (see Rachel Getting Married) and has also become a consistent performer on the red carpet.
Take last night’s Golden Globes, for example. While I was left largely unimpressed by most of the dresses I spotted in the red-carpet coverage and during the awards show itself, Anne Hathaway alone blew me away in a stunning sequin gown from the Armani Privé Fall 2010 haute couture collection. The colour, the silhouette, the sparkle from the paillettes – I loved it! I didn’t even hate the nude fabric in the back.
