Miss Dior Misstep

This faux Dior ad of Jennifer Lawrence (a.k.a. the new Miss Dior) is perfection. Love it and love her! The girl can even make a tumble look elegant.

They need to use this for the real campaign! JLaw is in good company ~ the current Miss Dior is the très chic and feminine Natalie Portman.

miss-dior-natalie-portman-la-vie-en-rose

Her “La Vie En Rose” commercial (by the uber-stylish Sofia Coppola) is one of my faves ~ ever since I first saw it, Grace Jones‘ version of the song has been permanently placed on all of my playlists. J’adore!

Red Carpet Hangover

Topping off an already fun & fabulous weekend by staying up to watch the Oscars (followed by Jimmy Kimmel’s Movie: The Movie v2) has left this fashion lover lacking some zzzz’s and in desperate need of an Oscar hangover disguise…

oscar hangover

Lots of prettiness promenaded down the Red Carpet this year but if this is supposed to be the Super Bowl of Fashion, you’re going to need to step it up, starlets! Bring back some of that Hollywood glitz & glam while you’re at it.  If I’m going to lose my beauty sleep over this, you’ll need to take my breath away, mesmerize me, wow me, knock my socks off.

Here’s the breakdown, beauties:

Kerry Washington, my best dressed pick for the evening, looked simply marvelous in Miu Miu! She sizzled in a sparkly crystal-encrusted, coral-skirted, bow-accented gown. This is how you rock the red carpet, ladies.

Charlize Theron in Dior ~ not my absolute favorite look of hers, but who am I kidding ~ her “so-so” is a mere mortal’s Best Day Ever.

Also loved her soft-shoe serenade with Sexiest Man Alive Channing Tatum!

Jennifer Garner ~ beautiful & statuesque in violet ruffled Gucci Première. Her best accessories are her hubs and those dimples.

The always lovely Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta ~ I imagine the strapless ice blue gown with cascading ruffles was even prettier in person! Scroll down further to see her slinky switch for the Vanity Fair party.

Jennifer Lawrence glows in Dior. She’s such a breath of fresh air ~ and even makes tripping on her gown look charming.

Anne Hathaway ~ transparent in Prada. Not an altogether unfortunate dress but underwhelming style & color on her.

Anne-front_back_62_1679844a

Jessica Chastain ~ pretty in copper Giorgio Armani with lovely Veronica Lake locks.

Jennifer Hudson ~ looking feisty in Roberto Cavalli, this beautiful blue is a great color on her (and much better than last year’s ill-fitting tangerine mishap).

JHudson

Adele in a Jenny Packham black embellished gown. Love her!

Halle Berry ~ very Bond Girl in art-deco themed va-va-Versace.

halle-Berry_620_1679869a

Jen Aniston looking pretty & happy in Valentino signature red. The full skirt was new for her and I loved seeing her in color for a change.

jen & justin

Amanda Seyfried in lilac Alexander McQueen halter gown with key-hole neckline. Not enough contrast against her skin and wish she had at least swiped on a pop of pink lipstick.

Reese Witherspoon ~ Louis Vuitton cobalt strapless gown. Fit was off but her hair was pretty.

Naomi Watts in silver sequin Giorgio Armani. Love her, don’t love the dress.

naomi-watts-armani-prive

Helen Hunt in wrinkled H&M ~ I’m as bored with her as she appeared to be throughout the entire show.

Helen-hunt_620_1679847a

Nicole Kidman in L’Wren Scott ~ she looks beautiful but I’m confused by this gown. On another note, Keith is getting so big!

keith-urban-nicole-kidman-wren-scott

Jane Fonda  in canary yellow Versace.  All of those leg warmer-laden workouts & feeling the burn have paid off!

jane fonda

Kristen Stewart~ a trainwreck in Reem Acra. Crutches, limping, bed head, bruised arm, looks like she hasn’t slept in days. Daniel Radcliffe seemed horrified to stand next to her.

Zoe Saldana in Alexis Mabille gown. She’s a gorgeous girl, but the belt, bow, and triple-toned split at the bottom are just too much. I think she redeems herself at the Vanity Fair party (scroll down).

zoe-saldana-2013-oscars

Renee Zelweger looks like she was dipped in gold with this Carolina Herrera gown that fits her like a glove.

Speaking of being dipped in gold ~ why didn’t Dame Shirley Bassey ever win an Oscar for Goldfinger in 1964?

Sandra Bullock ~ pretty in an Elie Saab beaded lace sheer black gown. Not my favorite but still love her.

Sandra shines

Robin Roberts ~ stunning in blue velvet Marc Bouwer. What a gem!

Salma Hayek in navy blue velvet Alexander McQueen with gold embellished collar and Cindy Chao jeweled hairpiece. Love that she made the look her own.

Kristin Chenoweth ~ never again. Nails on chalkboard.

Babs was fabs in DKNY and had me at Memories. “Your girl is lovely, Hubbell.” Sniffle…gets me every time.

Barbra Streisand

Speaking of Donna K. ~ is this just a creepy Travolta photobomb?

creepy bizarre

Stacy Keibler ~ statuesque in a Gatsby-esque Naeem Khan dress.

The men of the evening making their own style statement  ~ Ben, George, Hugh & Bradley rock the beard.

The bubbly flowed long after the awards at the Vanity Fair party…

Amy Adams shimmied into some shimmery metallic fringe.

Jennifer Lawrence slipped on some silver.

Throwing Shade

Like a true gentleman, our furry February friend Punxsutawney Phil has thrown no shade today ~ so hello to less winter and and an early spring! Just the thought of sunny blue skies ahead is enough to carry me through ’til then…

Even though it’s cold outside, spring fashion is in full bloom ~ stay tuned for my pretty picks for the season!

Brrrr & Prrrr

Kittens, it’s cold outside!

Dr Zhivago interior

So many layers, so little time to pile them all on (and still keep a shred of chicness as I dash out the door). My must-have for these frosty, February days? A fabulous fuzzy or (faux) fur hat.  A Zhivago-esque topper is all you need to turn up the heat and channel your inner lynx, lovelies.
