Oscars 2013: Best Dressed

26 Feb

This awards season has been an impressive one for fashion. It seems that well-dressed stars have far outnumbered the questionable choices of years past. Like I’ve done every year for as long as I can remember, I settled into my couch on Sunday and turned on E! to see the stars hit the red carpet. I was amazed at the number of gorgeous dresses this year. Sure, not everyone knocked it out of the park, but I really can’t think of any major disappointments!

Kerry Washington Miu Miu Oscars Dress


I knew my pick for best dressed the second I saw this actress/dress on the red carpet. Kerry Washington and her coral Miu Miu gown literally blew me away the second they appeared on my TV screen. I loved everything about it, from the detailed beaded top to the bow belt that showed off her petite figure. Maybe it’s the coral that drew me to Washington’s dress. I am eagerly awaiting spring after all, and this was a gorgeous reminder that I need to add some coral to my wardrobe, stat. I also loved that Washington went with something a little more fun than we’re used to seeing at the Oscars. The eye-catching color palette made Washington’s Miu Miu gown one to remember. She kept her jewelry simple (a ring and stud earrings), which was smart as to not distract from the intricate beading on her corset top.

        She was one of the best dressed. There were so many boring dresses that night. i had hope to be wow’ed but i didn’t. I think last year people was better dressed. This year was safe looks.

    Kerri was definitely stunning, but I have to give it to Charlize Theron in her short hair and gorgeous white dress!

      I agree! She’s classy but always wears something fun and exciting.

    I am a huge fan of this look because I always love bright colors, but I think my favorite was Stacey Kiebler.

      Stacy Kiebler did look great! I wish George would shave his beard, though!

    Kerry in Miu Miu was my fav too! Closely followed by Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain…

      They looked great too! I love how Kerry wore a vibrant color that you’re not used to seeing.
