2013 Oscar Fashion
Best Dressed

At first, I had a 3-way tie for Best Dressed. In the end, after looking at a lot of photos, I decided on one clear winner. Jessica Chastain was the first major star to arrive on the red carpet. I like to think she did it on purpose. "I know I look damn good, so you're going to have to watch me walk around and smile in this fabulous dress all night long." Seriously, chica looked amazing!

Chastain chose a bronze Armani Privé gown. I'm really surprised I love this as much as I do. Even though she's a fair skinned redhead, it all works. She looks amazing. The dress is gorgeous. The fit is perfect. I love her hair and her makeup, especially the red lips. I feel like these pictures don't do her justice. If you saw her on the red carpet, you know she killed it.

My other favorites...

Naomi Watts also went with Armani Privé. This gunmetal gown was a show-stopper. I love the color, the cut and the fit. Did you see her hubby taking pics of her with his phone? So cute.

In my opinion, you can never go wrong with a black + gold Alexander McQueen. I would totally wear this dress. Salma Hayek looks fab + fierce. Love the smoky eye and bold updo!

Sandra Bullock wore Elie Saab! You remember how I chose an Elie Saab for my pretend Oscar dress, right? Well, this is the one I almost went with. She looks so pretty, y'all. I just love Sandy B.

Next up, we have Reese Witherspoon in Louis Vuitton. I don't love the dress, but I am in love with her overall look. Her hair is perfect, and I love her makeup and classic diamond jewelry.

Lastly, we have Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta. I don't really love this shape. It's not original. It's strapless, and it's poofy. It looks great on her though. The color works. And how fabulous does she look? I love her simple makeup and updo. Mostly, I just want to steal her diamonds.

Reese looks so old school glam - I love it! I love Jessica Chastain, but the dress makes her seem washed out a little. Overall beautiful still, just a little pale.

I'm not a great lover of pale anything but, like you with Reese, I love Jessica's overall look.

Amy Adams suit that dress perfectly, she's so pretty.

I wasn't crazy about Sandra Bullock although I love her.

And Salma Hayek looks like she hasn't eaten for about a month to get into that dress!!! I still can't make up my mind about the dress.

Naomi Watts looked amazing, she's beautiful...loved him taking photos of her, nice couple.

I agree completely with your #1 pick that dress is amazing and it goes SO well with her features and skin!

I think Jessica looked a lot better indoors in that dress than outside. It was a great look! Sandra was my favorite though. Naomi and Amanda Seyfried were my runner ups. I didn't really like Salma or Reece. Amy's was really great too.
