With the award season well and truly over, and we have been dazzled by many different dresses around the season. The fashion stakes were even higher this year from experienced trailblazer Cate Blanchett and newcomer Lupita Nyong’o in the mix. Which one was your favourite?
The Best Supporting Actress winner, Lupita Nyong’o had brought much needed colour to the award season, with a new colour for each award show! It had complimented her well against her dark skin, and allowed her to well and truly stand out from the rest of the crowd. She was a favourite on the best dressed lists, and it is easy to see why.
My favourites were the Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards and SAG Awards. She had mixed a sense of class and femininity while keeping it fun with her various colour choices.
The Best Actress winner, Cate Blanchett, is a personal favourite of mine. When it comes to the red carpet, she can do no wrong in my eyes and is my red carpet fashion icon. However, this awards season, she had played it a bit safe particularly in comparison to Lupita Nyong’o.
She did have amazing moments such as the Golden Globes and the Oscars, which were the great Cate that we all know. But sad to say, I was expecting more from her and to be blown away, but I wasn’t.
My homegirl Jennifer Lawrence who I worship the ground she walks on and dream of the day that we will become best of friends had a relatively short award season, as she had skipped out on the Critics Choice Awards, BAFTA and the Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon. As expected of being the face of Christian Dior, she was dressed by Christian Dior throughout the award season.
She had started on a fashion blunder with her Christian Dior dress at the Golden Globes, which had spored many memes with people creating their own version of the dress. She had picked up her game at the SAG and the Oscars with much better choices from the brand. My favourite had been her look at the Oscars, as you can never go wrong with colour and in particular red. She had ditched Christian Dior in favour of Tom Ford at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party, which was a nice change.
You can always trust the five-time Oscar nominee to bring a touch of class to the award season. Amy Adams was consistent with her choices and look ever so beautiful and elegant in her looks.
Though, for her Valentino dress at the Golden Globes had looked so much better with the cape which she hadn’t worn on the red carpet. That was my only real compliant for her run. I love that she had managed to in slip a jumpsuit at the Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon, claps for difference.
My favourite was the Critics Choice Awards, it was a great silhouette and framed her body well.
