Best Trend at the 2013 Oscars: Black & Sparkly

It was so obvious at the 85th Academy Awards that black and sparkly was the most prevalent trend. And here are the ladies who did it impeccably:

Best Trend at the 2013 Oscars: Black & SparklyThe super hot Stacy Keibler in Naeem Khan.

Nicole KidmanNicole Kidman in a L’Wren Scott gold and black sequin gown that her husband, Keith Urban, helped to pick out.

Kelly OsbourneKelly Osbourne did very well in this Tony Ward number (Kristin Chenoweth wore the same designer). The asymmetrical straps give her shoulders definition.

85th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsHalle Berry in a shoulder-padded, plunging Versace column gown. She’s such a rockstar/Bond girl.

85th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsMy male best-dressed is none other than Chris Pine in Ermenegildo Zegna double-breasted tux. Isn’t he classically beautiful?

Amanda SeyfriedMy final favorite is Amanda Seyfried in this lacey gold and lavender halter gown by Alexander McQueen.

Oscar pt 2

4. Black:

Nicole Richie. This dress really overwhelms her frame. The revealing backside is the more attractive part of the dress.

Tina Fey. Pretty glammed up isn’t she? The slim one shoulder is a popular feature and it looks good on her.














Carrie Mulligan: The dress has a rocker feel to it, which goes well with her short hair. The bottom is kind of confusing though.

Faith Hill. It’s sexy for lingerie but, eh, the Oscar?

Kristen Stewart. She looks strangely feminine & red-carpet-appropriate.

Mariska Hargitay. These two dresses look quite similar to me, but Mariska looks good.







5. Prints & the odds:

Mariah Carey. I like the sweat heart neckline on dresses in general but it makes her look unproportionate. She is much bigger at the chest area and needs a more dramatic skirt bottom to balance it out.

Meryl Streep, looking absolutely sophisticated and glowing. She pretty much lives up to her The Devil wears Prada character, fashion guru Miranda Priestly.

Vera Farmiga. I love magenta but this dress is too Lady Gaga for anyone other than herself.

Maggie Gyllenhaal. The bold tropical print really spices up the red carpet.

Rachel McAdams. The silhouette is out of this world. It’s a perfect spring piece but the common opinion is that it’s too muted for the Oscar.
