The 86th Annual Academy Awards was one for the books. What with Ellen’s selfie crashing twitter, Jennifer Lawrence’s fall…again…, the pizza delivery during the ceremony, the incredible musical performances, and John Travolta’s pronunciation slip up, nobody will forget these Oscars. However, the memories started before the celebrities poured into the Dolby Theatre. And with that, I present to you, the best dressed list.
Mom to be Olivia Wilde looked anything but expecting in a black Valentino gown.
Kristen Bell admitted to wanting to channel a Frozen vibe and that’s why she settled on this beautiful bridal-inspired gown Roberto Cavalli. Her best accessory? Her killer post baby bod.
Lupita Nyong’o wowed once again. This time in a Prada princess Nairobian blue dress. Rookie of the year is an understatement.
As the face of Dior, Jennifer Lawrence designer of choice was no surprise. Her hair looked glam and oh-so Hollywood, nor can you overlook her party-in-the-back necklace.
Jennifer Garner’s Oscar de la Renta silver sparkly fringe number was classic old Hollywood with a twist. And don’t even get be started about her hair….absolute perfection.
Kate Hudson stunned in an Atelier Versace gown, also channeling the old Hollywood glam. Her cleavage-baring, low-cut beaded gown was simultaneously sexy and conservative because of that cape!
Emma Watson rocked the red carpet in her metallic rocker-esque Vera Wang gown and her red lip was flawless.
Amy Adams styled herself in this dark navy Gucci dress, looking effortlessly classy and graceful.
Julia Roberts took the generic black gown to a whole new level. This Givenchy Couture dress combined peplum and lace to create a one of a kind and beautiful look.
Last, but certainly not least, is the lady who stands on the red carpet all night being her genuine and amazing self: Giuliana Rancic. Giuliana was the belle of the ball and stole the show in this Paolo Sebastian number.
