My Top Five Designs/Looks At The 2013 Oscars

By Lakshmi:  

Any time there is an awards function on TV, one of the major attractions for me (and now my younger daughter) is the red carpet.  Watching beautiful people gracefully walk the red carpet in amazing designs is truly a feast for the eyes and soul!  Last night was no different; from Helen Hunt’s bold choice of an H&M over the rack gown (it fit her beautifully) to the exquisite Gucci design worn by Jennifer Garner, the clothes and the accompanying jewelry lent the perfect look to these screen goddesses.

Here are my top five looks, that blended the beautifully created designs with the wearer’s persona.

#5  I’ve been following Michelle Obama’s sartorial displays since she stepped into her role as first lady and she definitely has a knack for picking clothes that flatter her statuesque frame.  Her beautifully beaded black and silver Naeem Khan gown was cut perfectly and completed her fringed, sassy look.

#4 Is there ever a time that Halle Berry does not look drop dead gorgeous?  Be it lounging on the beach in casual shorts or walking the red carpet, the woman is blessed with the most beautiful features, skin and more.  Her Marchessa gown embroidered and accentuated with what appear to be shoulder pads made her seem to appear from an outer world galaxy.

#3 Jennifer Lawrence’s  youthful exuberance and nervousness was framed beautifully in a blush Dior gown which was reminiscent of the allure of Dior print ads.  Her pulled back hair coupled with classic jewelry added a mature sophistication well beyond her years.

#2 Dubbed by the New York Times as fashion’s favorite clothes hanger, Jessica Chastain exuded old world glamor (think Rita Hayworth).  Her copper beaded Armani gown, her bright lips and the softly cascading curls created a vision to behold.

#1  I’m not a huge Jennifer Garner fan, but her look was one of the most ethereal beautiful ones that graced the red carpet last night.  Her violet Gucci gown with a simple strapless front paired with an exquisite ruffled back was simply perfect.  As Jennifer herself mentioned, “Once I saw the sketch, I did not want anything else.”  Her hair pulled back with wispy tendrils accentuated the spectacular diamond necklace around her neck.  She was simply the vision of perfection.
