Academy Awards 2014

Last night I watched the Academy Awards solely to see how Hollywood rocked it in the style world this year. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed. This year I was expecting some colorful, fun ensembles and I did not see much of that. Nonetheless, I have narrowed down my favorites of the night, for both the guys and the girls.

#1 Girl-  Kelly Osbourne

Even I am surprised that Kelly Osbourne topped my list, surpassing Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett. But she stood out with her gorgeous, form fitting dress. Yes, it is simple, but the touch of shimmer in her lace shrug adds an elegance to the look that intertwines beautifully with her (though unconventional) lavender locks.

Honorable mention ladies-

Charlize, although donned in plain black, was classy and chic in her gown. The strapless, plunging neckline can be hard to pull off but this sexy lady does it with confidence. The dress, much like Kelly O's, brings attention to the starlet, but does so in a simple, nonchalant way.

Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson, like me, doesn't have the "blossoming bosom" gene. But she found a dress this year that drew the attention to her enviable waistline. The cinch style of her sparkling dress is unique and gorgeous. She looks modest with some mystery, but shows just enough skin to exude a sexy, feminine vibe.

I don't necessarily think that Viola's dress is the most flattering on her body, but she gets points for taking the road less traveled with her colorful green piece. The color does compliment her skin tone beautifully, and the simple silhouette is both classy and fun.

#1 Guy- Ethan Hawke

When it comes to men's fashion, sometimes less is more. In the case of last night's Oscars, Ethan Hawke proved this. Most men's tuxedos look exactly the same, but part of what makes a man look good is the way he wears his clothes. Ethan was my top pick because he was simple, classy and confident. 

Honorable mention guys-

Tyler Perry

Tyler Perry, while also very classic in his ensemble choice, did a nice pop of white with his tux. That small element set him apart without making him stand out in a bad way. His look was timeless and unique, and he topped it off with a humble confidence that was the cherry on top. 

 Michael Strahan

Michael, much like Viola Davis, gets props not because of the way his getup fits him, but because he took a risk in red. He wears it with no apology and I love that he did something different. Since we are technically still in winter, he also gets points for staying in color seasonally (although that only works when you can pull it off).

Who topped your best dressed list?
