Oscar Fashion Winners

Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway

The red carpet parade at the Oscar's tonight was filled with talented actresses in beautiful gowns. Jennifer Lawrence in a blush Dior gown that trailed on behind her forever. Amy Adam's wore an Oscar de la Renta gown that featured a massive multi layered skirt. Helen Hunt wore a royal blue gown that retailer H & M created for her. Rounding out her Oscar worthy look Miss Hunt wore $700,000 in bling from jeweler Martin Katz. No one would have know that the Oscar gown Helen wore was from the fashion accessible line that we all shop at.

Rather than fill this post with fashions from the red carpet I prefer to share with you my favourite Oscar fashion..........worn by Anne Hathaway.

Anne Hathaway wears a petal pink Prada gown that features a daring strap back. I love her look because with her hair short, the lines of the gown, the string of Tiffany diamonds draped down her back and that warm mega watt smile, Anne reminded me of Audrey Hepburn. She looked elegant and demure.

There was chatter on the net and twitter about the front of her dress, in particular that people thought that her nipples were protruding. Here's what I think {for what it is worth} - this is a satin dress with darts on the bodice to create contouring at the bust - for anyone who sews knows that it brings the stiffer fabric to a slight point. Yesh! I would hope people would take away much more from such a pretty look.

Anne looked stunning and after seeing her performance in Les Miserable, I'm happy that she took home the Oscar. 

Congratulations to all the nominee's and winners. 
There are so many great movies in theater's right now; if you haven't seen the nominated films I encourage you to take them in.


  1. I agree, it was the darts not her nipples!! She looked stunning and what a talent.
    The fashions were quite lovely this year, only a few misses.

  2. She looked amazing! A classic beauty.

  3. I really disliked this gown that everyone loved. I hated the darts! Oh well, she's still fabulous!

  4. She is such a beauty Katherine. This dress makes her look stunning.
    Now I have got see the movie :)
    sending hugs...

  5. I agree, I love this look, she's really beautiful in these images. I know, there's always so many people eager to diss the outfits, it's such a shame. Must see the film that everyone's talking about now!

    1. The film is incredible and one that I want to see at least a couple more times on the big screen. The director of photography takes you right up into the faces of the characters, and you feel their passion as they sing. A must see!
