Though you know me well and I can’t help but put in a pinch of pepper with every Red Carpet event, last night’s 2010 Oscars Ceremony was pretty much flawless! The dresses were downright lovely and the Misses… well, let’s say they really deserved the gorgeousness of their frocks!
Talking about few of the most notable appearances of the night didn’t leave me without fuel to go on and mention the others. And not because I wouldn’t have graced them with an individual article, but because it’s about time we wrap up the fairytale-ish event that was the 82nd Academy Awards Ceremony! (the story continues with more images right after the jump, click here for the gallery!)
The tone of the night was pretty much into neutrals. Beige, chair, butter-y nuaces, everything it takes to make a significantly subtle elegance work better than a thousand sequins. However, notably missing last night were the prints! With Maggie Gyllenhaal’s exception (and what a lovely one, might I add! My favorite from this edition of the Oscars!), our beloved stars weren’t into print-experimenting. Less is more, and right they were!
The Red Carpet usuals: Marchesa, Elie Saab, Armani, Versace, even Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta, Dior, and Chanel were exposed under our very eyes. Talking about the Marchesa girls only leads us to the next glam-pack: the Armani girls: Amanda Seyfried and Jennifer Lopez. Both attending the Ceremony for presenting purposes, both wearing stunning dresses with the Armani Prive label on, both from the Spring Summer 2010 collection. Both equally charming and glamorous.
Next is the Elie Saab pack: Anna Kendrick and Rachel McAdams. If Anna Kendrick falls in the buttery category with a beautiful dress from the Spring Summer 2010 Couture collection, Rachel McAdams went further, within the same collection, finding something different. Something printed! But oh, did she look like poetry in motion! Rarely have I seen such complimenting dress! This Elie Saab Spring 2010 couture was made for Rachel McAdams!
It’s time for Atelier Versace: Demi Moore and Elizabeth Banks. Also presenting during the night, the two ladies chose two stunning designs from Atelier Versace, both on the burned sided of the colors palette.
Last but not least, few of my favorite ladies: Meryl Streep, the wonderful Meryl Streep was dressed in white! Wearing a dress from Chris March, Meryl was flawlessly elegant like she always is. Mo’Nique (the winner of an Oscar award for the Best Supporting Actress) had an electric blue dress from Tadashi Shoji. Charlize Theron was Dior faithful (not sure why she had that orangey-red lipstick on, though), Penelope Cruz had a burgundy number from Donna Karan Couture, Mariska Hargitay had a deep dark blue Vera Wang, pretty much the same color as Kristen Stewart’s Monique Lhuillier.
