Oscars 2015, the last Gala of awards season is finally here!
The Oscars 2015 or the 87th Academy Awards was celebrated last night, February 22, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. It’s the night where Hollywood’s finest find out if they’re taking home a little gold man. The Academy Awards are undeniably a competition. Everyone nominated for any Oscar is a winner by any definition of the word! The Oscars 2015 Red Carpet was a battlefield in which fashion wars are won and sometimes lost. Designers, stylists, publicists and actresses spend countless hours to find the perfect dress hoping that they will remain in the history of the Academy Awards.
This year’s Oscars red carpet was dominated by the 50 Shades of Pale!
From Marion Cotillard’s Dior dress to Lupita Nyong’o’s Calvin Klein pearl-encrusted gown…Even the men were on it. Jared Leto wore a pale lilac suit and white shoes.
But it’s the Oscars 2015…which means, on the red carpet, anything goes!
All in all, it was an entertaining glamorous affair that made sitting on a couch in front of a TV for six hours totally worth it. You know what’s the best? When you have super high expectations like I did and you get disappointed by the far surpassed appearances.
So…here are my best dressed choices from the Oscars 2015.
I guess it’s no secret anymore who my all time favorite is!
My Oscar for the Best Dressed Celebrity goes to…Jennifer Lopez!
She was absolutely fabulous wearing an Elie Saab gorgeously embellished, expertly tailored, and very, very…nude. I love her style!
Emma Stone is probably one of the favorite stars to see on any red carpet. Her fashion risk-taking always pays off. It’s no surprise that she stunned once again at the Oscars 2015. She is always on top of best-dressed lists! After wearing unthinkable pants at the Golden Globes, Emma Stone took the more traditional route for Oscar night, a glittering floor-length gown. Not every young actress could carry off acid green. Elie Saab, the Lebanese couturier who is a red-carpet mainstay, designed her dress. But equal credit goes to Emma, who pulled it off with aplomb.
While the night is really all about her nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “Birdman,” we can’t stop talking about her dress and that bright lipstick!
The winner of the Best Actress for her role in “Still Alice“, Juliane Moore did edgy last night in her white organza embroidered Chanel Haute Couture gown. Moore is one of the most impressive actresses working today, so it was only a matter of time before she won an Oscar. After 17 years and five nominations, it finally happened. So… she deserved something designed especially for her by Karl Lagerfeld! The dress took 987 hours of work and 27 people to complete, being embroidered with 80,000 small, white, hand-painted resin sequins and flowers.
She started her speech saying: “I read an article that said winning an Oscar could lead to living five years longer! If that’s true, I’d really like to thank the Academy because my husband is younger than me.”
She also talked about shining a light on Alzheimer’s disease: “So many people with this disease feel isolated and marginalized,” she said. “Movies make people feel seen and not alone. And people with Alzheimer’s deserve to be seen so we can find a cure.”
For a Best Actress nominee from a love story, Ms. Jones’s Alexander McQueen gown it felt appropriately romantic to wear on the red carpet. Felicity Jones knew she will be in spotlight at the Oscars 2015. So, she choose a silver grey 3D flower embellished gown with a turtleneck and a broad diameter. Rightly paired with a matching clutch and minimal jewellery, Felicity was definitely the most charming beauty on the red carpet.
Once again Chrissy Teigen is turning heads on the red carpet!
The 29-year-old supermodel stunned at the Oscars 2015, in an embellished, light blue Zuhair Murad gown that featured a very low cut and a very, very high slit.
Pregnant Keira Knightley was the most beautiful diva on the Oscars 2015 red carpet, courtesy her Shakespearean look. Nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for the film “The Imitation Game”, Keira walked around in a Valentino Couture chiffon dress adorned with flowers and words written here and there. Paired with a cute hair band, Keira kept it easy and simple in short curls parted at the center.
Patricia Arquette’s pleated for equal pay and gender equality while accepting the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “Boyhood”. For this moment she wore a gown made by her friend, the designer Rosetta Getty, a Los Angeles based designer.”It was easy to design a dress for Patricia since we have been best friends for years,” said Ms. Getty in a statement. “When we were young, we always dreamed about how she would be an actress and I would be a fashion designer.”
Dreams come true!
Patricia Arquette had also the most outstanding feminist speech from the Oscars 2015, including some whooping from Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez: “It is time for us. It is time for women. The truth is even though we sort of feel like there is, there are huge issues that are at play and really do affect women. It’s time for all the women in America, and the men who love women and all the gay people and people of color we’ve all fought for to fight for us now.”
The other big winners of the evening were Eddie Redmayne, who won best actor for “The Theory of Everything”, and J.K. Simmons for best supporting actor for “Whiplash”.
“Birdman” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” where the big winners this year, with four Academy Awards a piece. I was really happy to see that my favorite singer John Legend won the for best original song “Glory” from Selma. His memorable performance stole some tears from the guests.
Lady Gaga dazzled with an astounding tribute to “The Sound of MUSIC”. She stole the spotlight and demonstrated that she has an amazing voice!
Screenwriter Graham Moore was anonymous until Sunday night when he addressed his speech to all the teenagers who don’t feel like they have a place in the world.
While accepting best adapted screenplay Oscar for “The Imitation Game” Graham Moore had the most purposeful and inspiring revelation:
“When I was 16 years old, I tried to kill myself because I felt weird and I felt different and I felt like I did not belong, and now I’m standing here! I would like for this moment to be for that kid out there who feels like she’s weird or she’s different or she doesn’t fit in anywhere. Stay weird! Stay different, and then when it’s your turn, and you are standing on this stage, please pass the same message along!”
I considered it one of the best moments of the evening and the night’s inspiring speech!
Stay Weird! Stay different!
I agree! Because every time I was called weird It’s like I was called Limited Edition! For me it means that I’m something people don’t see very often! So…I’m very proud of it!
Don’t be afraid of being different, be afraid of being the same as everyone else!
Happy Dragobete Day to all of you!
