87th Annual Academy Awards’ Best Dressed

This has been a bit of a mental weekend where I come from (details to follow, in a dedicated post), which is why a. I kind of disappeared these last few days and b. my Oscars’ Best Dressed post is a tad late (only managed to watch the ceremony last night, to be honest).

Now, I have to admit to being slightly disappointed by the red carpet this year, especially since three of my all time favorite stunners (aka Kate Hudson, Charlize Theron and Angelina Jolie) did not make an appearance and some of the chicest ladies ever totally let me down (case in point: Marion Cottilard).

I will not even begin to discuss all the fashion fiascos (i.e. Lupita Nyong’o, Nicole Kidman, Keira Knightley, Rita Ora, Solange Knowles, Chrissy Teigen, Blanca Blanco, Lorelei Linklater, Kerry Washington) and missteps (i.e. Jessica Chastain, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lopez, Felicity Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chloe Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore) I had to witness, mainly ’cause just thinking about them is giving me a headache…

All that not withstanding , I did spot a few pieces I liked – some of them even redeeming previously horrifying appearances… (Rosamund Pike I’m looking at you – and your Golden Globes’ ensemble) which I’ll feature below:

Rosamund Pike in Givenchy

Emma Stone in Elie Saab

Faith Hill in J. Mendel

Jennifer Hudson in Romona Keveza

Cate Blanchett in Maison Margiela

Anna Faris in Zuhair Murad

Behati Prinsloo in Armani Prive

Zoe Saldana in Atelier Versace

Laura Dern in Alberta Ferretti

Bee Shaffer in …… ?


  1. I was also disappointed that Angelina Jolie did not make an appearance… However, I love & agree with your above selections.., maybe not so much of what Jennifer Hudson wore, the rest has made me taking fashion/style notes!! πŸ™‚

  2. Hello and welcome to Lifestyle Counter! Thanks for taking the time to comment, it means the world to me πŸ™‚ I kinda love the simplicity and elegance evident in Jennifer’s choices – plus she gets bonus points for having lost all that weight and kept it off successfully πŸ™‚

  3. Hey girl! Just realised (and left you a comment), then saw this πŸ™‚ Thanks a mill! I will tackle your questions asap…

  4. Ah of course love! I adore your blog and you are always so sweet. You deserve it. Can’t wait to read yours! πŸ™‚ x
