Oscars 2013 – Best and Worst

In Celebrity Moms, Entertainment, Fashion, Style, Style Events by Guest Writer2 Comments

Pantone’s color of the year might be emerald, but for the 2013 Oscars, pale was absolutely the color (or lack of color) of the year!!  The pales ranged from silvers to beige to pink undertone and all kinds of beautiful in between.  The other trend that hit the red carpet in a big way was the metallics.  Statements were being made with blacks with pewter, blacks and  silvers, golds, and so much more. There were a few who went with the bold colors but for those that did their presence was commanded!

The Academy Awards are a time to showcase the work of Hollywood’s actors and actresses.  More importantly, its a time to shine a light on the true glitz and glamour of Hollywood and this years Oscars were certainly no exception.  We saw dresses that sizzled the red carpet and those that may have been better off swept under it!

Here are SSM’s Picks for Oscars 2013 Best and Worst Dressed:


85th Annual Academy Awards - Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington when against the trend this year and came in the oh so hot color of spring, coral Miu Miu Gown.  We love the simple belt and embellished bust and cannot get enough of  the darker colored coral/orange clutch and shoes!

85th Annual Academy Awards - Stacy Keibler

We loved George’s arm candy, Stacy Keibler, who marveled in metallic wearing Naeem Khan!

 85th Annual Academy Awards - Sandra Bullock

Sandra stunned in this lacy sheath dress by Elie Saab

85th Annual Academy Awards - Jennifer Gardner

Jennifer Garner in wine colored Gucci was simple and elegant and the necklace made the look.

85th Annual Academy Awards - Naomi Watts

Naomi Watts magnified the metallics in this cutout form fitting Giorgio Armani.


85th Annual Academy Awards - Daryl Hannah

We think Daryl Hannah was channeling her 1984 mermaid character in Splash with this coral “mermaid” shaped gown.  Its more of a sink than a swim!

 Oscars 2013 - Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland in the A-symetrical Donna Karan Atelier was a bit too choppy of a look and the top looked like it may have a wardrobe malfunction.

85th Annual Academy Awards - Anne Hathaway

The typical best dressed Anne Hathaway disappointed in this pale pink Prada.  Questioning A.) what’s going on with the bust area(rhymes with ripples)? B.) why the necklace with such a high neckline?

85th Annual Academy Awards - Fan Bingbing

And then there is Fan Bingbing!  Beautiful shade of pink, but there is a whole lot of pink for not a whole lot of lady.

85th Annual Academy Awards - Salma Hayek

Lastly, there appears to be just a bit too much going on in the neck area of Salma Hayak’s dress and leaves us distracted!

Who were some of your favorites of the night?
