[EVENT RECAP]: 85th Academy Awards

Favored by Yodits Oscar Recap  

One of the biggest nights in Hollywood occurred last night and stars stepped out in their best to dazzle us on the red carpet. Personally, I am not a huge fan of the awards show itself but I love to see everyone’s outfits of choice. This year I was a little disappointed. Most of the stars look very blah and unfinished. I was hoping for more head turners but it seemed like most decided to keep it safe and understated.

Thankfully, we had celebs like Charlize Theron who look stunning in Dior and Kelly Rowland in a show stopping Donna Karen Atelier gown. Naomi Watts was another fan favorite dressed in a metallic silver Giorgio Armani gown. Jamie Foxx looked very dapper in a grey Calvin Klein suit and I also really liked Amy Adam’s light blue Oscar de la Renta gown, but I wish her makeup and hair were different to really finish the look.

Since the Oscar’s is such a classy event, I love how simple the décor was. The streaming gold lights in the background, and the stage were very elegant and didn’t distract from whatever was happening on stage but instead enhanced it.
