However, I think these fab ladies win hands down for the accolade of BEST DRESSED, not only for this years Oscars, but for the entire awards season! For both gals I literally gasped, and WOWED, oohhhed and ahhhed. They both just look so so stunning…

Kelly Osbourne wore a Badgley Mischka dress, whilst Kate Hudson draped herself in Alteir Versace.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!

I think it’s become clear, not only through this post but my other award posts, that I am partial to a creamy, goldy, embroidered gown; why not remind yourself of all my other best dressed celebs …

Emmys, Golden Globes, SAG Awards, Grammys, BAFTA’s!

Jared-Leto-Oscars-2014

Jared Leto aka ‘Best Supporting Actor for Dallas Buyers Club’, wore Saint Laurent, I especially loved his spangly buttons!

An Afterthought…

My initial feeling to Cate Blanchett’s dress was “it’s pretty, but I’ve seen better”. However, after watching some highlights (the actual show was 1:30-4:00am on a Sunday night – not sure my boss would have been happy with me Monday morning) and seeing Ryan Seacrest chatting with her, I decided that actually she looked absolutely gorgeous. I think this is enhanced through the fact that she simply oozes loveliness – she just seems so kind and genuine! But also her skin, (oh my!) and her hair, she literally shines, and because she’s made my picks in each award post I couldn’t not include her here, I think she’s worthy ; )

Who are your award season heroes? And have you seen any of the ‘must see’ films? I’m currently reading “12 Years a Slave” SOB!

Girl Crush…

So I had a lil’ bit of an unintentional Jennifer Lawrence fest last week…

First off was obviously The Hunger Games Catching Fire, and WOW, I loved this one more than the first. Although I think this was mainly to do with Peta. In the first film I wasn’t sure of his casting for this role. I was so in love with the books – it literally took me a week to read all three – and for me that just wasn’t how Peta looked.

But in the second one he definitely manned up (which always helps ; p), even if Katniss had to save his bum more often than not.

The second was the Silver Linings Playbook, now I tried to read this book and really struggled. To be honest I wasn’t really sure what the storyline was going into it, and I just could not get my head around it, I think I started to feel like I was going crazy! With this in mind, and even though before reading the book I really wanted to see the film, I didn’t have huge expectations for the film, I knew JL had won an Oscar for best performance by an actress, as well as a whole host of other awards, but I thought I was going to be just as confused as I was with the book.

How wrong I was! I loved this film! It’s very rare that I prefer the film if I have read the book/s first, bit The Silver Linings Playbook is definitely an exception. I wasn’t actually feeling great when I watched it and had been off work and in bed all day, but this film really cheered me up! It’s such a feel good film, but still hits a deep and  un-chartered topic.

But it’s not only her films that are great, she seems to be a really genuine and down-to-earth person, and lets face it at 23 and with all that she’s accomplished you would expect at least a couple of diva moments. But no, she (apparently) picks Bud(weiser) over fancy artisan beers, and even goes to premieres, The Great Gatsby Premiere in New York to be exact, with her hair up and without any make up! Yes you heard me NO MAKE-UP!

And obviously she still looked bloody gorgeous!

As well as this she still has the ability to completely transform herself, from the fresh-faced beauty above, to girl-next-door, sophisticated ladeee, and super sexy siren…
