2013 Oscars: Charlize Theron in Christian Dior

charlize-theron_0

Celeb:  Charlize Theron

Designer:  Dior Haute Couture (gown), Harry Winston (jewels)

Event:  2013 Oscars, Los Angeles

Verdict:  Amazing.  Charlize looks like a vision in white!  This white silk bustier dress is stunning and I love the little bit of added detail in the embroidered peplum.  This kind of reminds me of Anne Hathaway at the Golden Globes when she wore a similar Chanel version….but this is better!  Way better!  Barely-there makeup and Harry Winston jewels complete this lovely look.  A!  Top five, for sure.

What do you think?  Do you like Charlize in this Christian Dior gown?  Love it or loathe it?  Yay or nay?

2013 Oscars: Samantha Barks in Valentino

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

 

Celeb:  Samantha Barks

Designer:  Valentino (gown), Forevermark (necklace)

Event:  2013 Oscars, Los Angeles

Verdict:  I love this!  I think Samantha looks gorgeous in this classic black Valentino gown.  The plunging neckline gives this look a little bit of edge…just enough to be waaaay sexy.  If Samantha  had a bigger bust, this dress could potentially look inappropriate for the Oscars.  But, she looks great….just the right amount of sexy.  This look is ultra glamorous.  I’m not really sure how I feel about the necklace, though.  I sort of feel like she doesn’t really need it, but it still looks okay.  Samantha is definitely a candidate for the best-dressed list.  :)

What do you think?  Do you like this black Valentino gown on Samantha?  Love it or loathe it?  Yay or nay?

Celeb:  Stacy Keibler

Designer:  Naeem Khan (gown), Giuseppe Zanotti (heels), Lorraine Schwartz (jewels)

Event:  2013 Oscars, Los Angeles

Verdict:  Stacy looks absolutely stunning!  I love this!  This fully embellished gun-metal gray Naeem Khan gown looks so great on Stacy.  Like, this is probably one of my most-favorite looks I have ever seen on George Clooney’s gal.  This dress is glamorous, chic and ultra-sexy.  So perfect for Stacy….the halter neckline, the black belt and the  chiffon covered open-back….AHHH!  I just love it so much!  Now, I am not over-the-top for her hair, but honestly who cares?!?  The rest of her looks so great her hair really doesn’t matter!  Am I right?!  This is a best-dressed contender, hands down.  A+!

What do you think?  Do you like Stacy in this Naeem Khan gown?  Love it or loathe it?  Yay or nay?

2013 Oscars: Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior

Celeb:  Jennifer Lawrence

Designer:  Dior Haute Couture (gown), Chopard (necklace)

Event:  2013 Oscars, Los Angeles

Verdict:  WOW.  Jennifer looks simply outstanding in this Christian Dior gown.  I mean, I know a lot of people deem this look too bridal, but I say heck no!  It is feminine, elegant and beautiful.  The ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ best actress winner looks like a classic hollywood beauty.  And I really like the Chopard necklace worn backwards, draping down her back!  Jennifer is definitely a best-dressed candidate for me, she makes my top five list for sure.  Love this!

What do you think?  Do you like Jennifer in this pale pink and white Dior Haute Couture gown?  Love it or loathe it?  Yay or nay?

Adrian Peterson: Suited Up

Obviously Adrian ‘All Day’ Peterson is most known for his skills on the football field as the star running back for the Minnesota Vikings.  However, I would like to take a moment to recognize his fashion skills!  AD looks good in a suit and tie!  Yep!

Two dapper dudes: AD and Patrick Willis of the 49ers

 

So.  There you have it.  Adrian Peterson looks great on and off the field.  My favorite part of a man in a suit is most definitely the tailoring.  The fit/cut/tailoring can make or break any look.  I mean, of course the color/fabric/pattern contributes to the overall look, but the fit is really what seals the deal, IMO.

What do you think?  Do you think AD looks like a hunk-o-rama all decked out in a suit and tie like I do?  Yay or nay?
