Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace Spring 2014
Cue shocking confession: we didn’t watch the Oscars red carpet coverage last night, not even a minute. The shock! The horror! We weren’t missing the posse of Ryan Seacrest and company in the slightest, but we weren’t feeling quite like ourselves until we’d fully caught up on all the action via the interweb and had created a 10 best dressed list like we always do. This year, though, we took some liberties: instead of limiting the list to the Academy Awards themselves, we also considered looks from Vanity Fair and Elton John’s respective Oscar parties.
The result? Kate Hudson in a dazzling caped Atelier Versace gown won the sartorial Oscar race in our books, but Diane Kruger in lace Valentino and Karolina Kurkova and Evan Rachel Wood, both stunning in Elie Saab, took home top style honours for the evening. The rest of our list is rather predictable but well deserved: Angelina Jolie in yet another gorgeous Elie Saab, Lupita Nyong’o in powder blue Prada, Anne Hathaway in sleek Gucci, and more.
Check out our complete top 10 best dressed from Oscars night below. Did we miss any of your favourites?

Our newfound style crush on Naomie Harris continues – as does our longstanding obsession with jumpsuits – with this gorgeous getup from the LoveGold event at Chateau Marmont last night honouring Academy Awards nominee Lupita Nyong’o.
Though it doesn’t take much more than a basic black jumpsuit to get us excited, this Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2014 design is particularly up our alley. The delicate lace inserts and peekaboo cutouts make for a romantic yet sexy look. We’re now officially on the hunt for jumpsuit #4, because one can never have enough…or so we’re telling ourselves.

Lupita Nyong’o in Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture
The BAFTA Film Awards were held at The Royal Opera House in London, England yesterday, and the Lupita Nyong’o and Cate Blanchett style watch continued. Neither disappointed; Lupita donned a gorgeous green couture number by Dior, while Cate chose a floral print column gown by Alexander McQueen.
This awards season’s sartorial frontrunners weren’t the only ones to impress. Naomi Harris brought a chic pop of pink Gucci to the red carpet, Angelina Jolie looked cool as a cucumber in a Saint Laurent tuxedo, and Olga Kurylenko stunned in a mermaid-inspired gown by Burberry.
The Academy Awards are just around the corner on March 2 (with Ellen DeGeneres as host!), and we can’t wait to see what these and our other favourite leading ladies have planned for the red carpet of all red carpets.

Earlier this week, Diane Kruger walked the red carpet of the premiere of her latest film, The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden, at the Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin looking impossibly chic, as per usual.
The actress donned a star sequin-embellished getup from Chanel‘s Pre-Fall 2014 collection, proving once and for all that sequinned garments are definitely year-round attire and not just reserved for the holiday season. And that’s not just for red carpet-strutting celebs like Diane – we’re devoted paillette fans 365 days a year.

Beyonce in Michael Costello
The 56th Annual Grammy Awards were held in Los Angeles last night, and we were glued to our televisions from red carpet coverage to closing performance. There were plenty of highlights, on stage (Daft Punk! Pharrell!) and off, sartorial (Valentino! Gucci!) or otherwise.
Beyonce may not have taken any Grammys home, but she won the whole night by our measure, with a fierce performance to open the show and best dressed honours to boot. Queen Bey followed up the bodysuit she wore to perform “Drunk In Love” with Jay-Z with a gorgeous white gown by Project Runway alumnus Michael Costello, who we totally cheered for during Season 8. Biggest moment of his career to date, definitely.
In other, non-Bey news, Ciara and her baby bump rocked the red carpet in a very chic custom Emilio Pucci, and Katy Perry made our jaws drop in exquisite, fresh-off-the-runway Valentino couture. Our obsession with tuxedos was reignited thanks to Madonna‘s dapper Ralph Lauren getup, and Gucci Première continued to knock our socks off this awards season with a stunning metallic number donned by Taylor Swift.
That rounds out our top 5 best dressed from the 2014 Grammys. Who was on your list?

Amy Adams in Antonio Berardi
The 2014 edition of the Screen Actors Guild Awards were held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles last night, and this awards season’s crop of stars hit the red carpet in glamourous fashion.
Cate Blanchett and Lupita Nyong’o continued their respective style streaks in stunning Givenchy and Gucci creations, while Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Lawrence all improved on their Golden Globes showings last week. Sofia Vergara and Claire Danes, two of our favourite actresses from the small screen, also brought their sartorial A games in gorgeous Donna Karan Atelier and Vionnet metallic gowns.
Check out our 10 best dressed from the 2014 SAG Awards. Did we get it right in your books?

The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards kicked off awards season last night with what was quite possibly the show’s best red carpet to date. Being scheduled first in the sartorial marathon that is awards season has historically meant that our favourite leading ladies have reserved their most gorgeous gown choices for the SAGs and Oscars, but it certainly didn’t look that way this year.
Sure, there will always be some train wrecks here and there, but the 2014 Golden Globes style game was rather stunning on the whole. Newcomer and rising red carpet star Lupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren and bona fide fashion goddess Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé won best dressed hands down, but the other stars who round out our top 10 weren’t far behind.
Who was on your best dressed list?
Lupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren Spring 2014
She had one of our favourite red carpet looks of 2013, and with jaw-dropping looks like this fiery red cape dress, she’s sure to be tops in 2014 as well.
Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé Fall 2013
All hail Queen Cate, who looked as regal as ever in an ethereal black lace gown and elegant hair and makeup to boot. We want to be her when we grow up.
Naomi Watts in Tom Ford
Naomi never disappoints on the red carpet, and her high-wattage column dress last night was no exception. Not even a well-timed photo-bombing can distract from this look.
Olivia Wilde in Gucci Première
Olivia and Gucci put on a lesson in dressing a pregnant woman for the red carpet; the actress and her emerald green sequin design were a match made in heaven.
Emilia Clarke in custom Proenza Schouler
Proenza isn’t yet a go-to for red carpet fashion, but the designers certainly made a strong case for it with this beautiful number worn by the Game of Thrones star.

Angelina Jolie in custom Ralph & Russo at ‘World War Z’ Berlin premiere
From awards shows to film festivals to fashion fetes, 2013 has been quite a year on the red carpets. With 365 days worth of drop-dead gorgeous looks to choose from, selecting a short list of the 10 best dressed of the year actually turned out to be an easier task than we anticipated. That’s just how fabulous the 10 looks that made our list really were.
Repeat winners like Rooney Mara and Diane Kruger continued to bring their A games in 2013, making our list two years in a row. The rest of the list was rounded out by established stars like Cate Blanchett and Marion Cotillard, future hall-of-famers Jessica Chastain and Kerry Washington, newcomers like Lupita Nyongo and Shu Qui, and surprise contender Rihanna.
Are you in as much awe as we are over these 10 best dressed ladies and their stunning looks, or did we miss some of your favourites from the year?

After the MTV VMA’s, we thought we’d never see the day when we’d want to feature one Miley Cyrus on this here blog, but it seems that day has come. The singer walked the Z100 Jingle Ball 2013 red carpet at Madison Square Garden on December 13, and despite our reservations about her, we kind of loved her look. A lot.
Miley chose an incredibly chic Maison Martin Margiela ensemble for the occasion, pairing a sheer, mandarin-collar blouse from the Spring 2014 collection with navy and yellow hand-painted tuxedo trousers from Fall 2013. She styled her getup perfectly with a silver cuff and sandals by Celine.
We can’t believe we’re saying this, but we’d steal her look in a heartbeat. In fact, those pants are now on our end-of-season sale wish list. Are you loving Miley’s latest look too?

We’ve been counting down the days until The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theatres on November 22, but with every new trailer or commercial we see, we’re starting to lose our patience. Thankfully, we’ve had the film’s premieres around the world and the cast’s red carpet appearances to keep us occupied until the big day.
Jennifer Lawrence has been rocking Dior after Dior during this premiere tour, and her choice for this past weekend’s showing in Paris was no different. JLaw donned a decidedly darker design from Dior’s Fall 2013 haute couture collection, complete with deep red lip, edgy new ‘do, and even some side boob action. Fierce.
But, seriously, is it November 22 yet?
