There has been a lot of buzz here today at FITNESS about last night’s Academy Awards show. But what seems to be on everyone’s minds more than anything are the glamourous red carpet looks…so let’s talk fashion! After chatting with some of the editors in the office, the ladies of the fashion department have compiled a list of our 7 favorite red carpet beauties:
Let’s start with Weight Watchers spokeswoman, Jennifer Hudson. How gorgeous did she look in that tangerine Atelier Versace gown? After losing 80 pounds and looking that fabulous, we think Jennifer could have rocked the Oscars in anything. You go girl!
The Jennifer’s were stealing the show last night, because we thought Jennifer Lawrence looked visionary in a red Calvin Klein column dress. The simplicity of the dress, with the va-va-voom of her luscious blonde locks made her a bombshell in our eyes.
Helen Mirren’s classic and sophisticated style totally stole our votes as one of the best dressed last night. The pewter Vivienne Westwood dress that she wore fit her perfectly, and with just the right amount of sparkling jewels, we think she set the bar high. Take notes, ladies, take notes!
Adding some sparkle to the red carpet was Mandy Moore, in a stunning Monique Lhuillier gown. The sheer bodice and tulle skirt accentuated Mandy in all of the right places, showing off her long and lean limbs. And those beads! How gorgeous?!
On the more fashion-forward end, we thought Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett took the cake. Gwyneth donned a beautiful Calvin Klein column dress with a tasteful plunging neck-line and a Louis Vuitton broach, which made her look statuesque, yet effortless. Cate’s lavender Givenchy gown with structured shoulders was soft and romantic, but with a little hit of unexpected yellow beading, she was able to score our vote for best dressed!
There seems to be a general conscious though, that Camila Alves was the show-stopper in a black Kaufman Franco gown, paired with understated, yet glamorous jewels. Come on now, who wouldn’t want to wear that stunning dress? And to stand next to Matthew McConaughey? What a lucky lady!
We would love to know what you think of our list! Share you thoughts and tell us who you thought rocked the red carpet at the 2011 Academy Awards!
