The 2014 Oscars Red Carpet and Lupita Nyong'o

Morning beautiful people, I've been banging on about The Oscars for weeks as you know but to be honest I was a bit disappointed with the fashion on the red carpet this year.  I'd expected lots of "wow" outfits but really I felt that it was a bit sedate and all the dresses were very similar in style and colour (other than Jennifer Lawrence who went for red).  But one lady who stood out is having a great awards season (both awards and fashion wise) and that's Lupita Nyong'o.  This is the lady from the Steve McQueen film "12 Years A Slave" which won Best Picture and Lupita won Best Actress in a Supporting Role.

Lupita Nyong'o - Oscars 2014

I just think she's got great taste, all her dresses stand out, I think because in this season of "beige nudes" (that's the official term, Grazia says so) Lupita struts her stuff down the red carpet wearing gorgeous head turning colours.  It's not that the beige nudes aren't pretty, they are, but they do sort of blend into the background. Below are Lupita's outfits from the SAG Awards and the Golden Globes and the green dress (right) is the the BAFTAS.  

Jennifer Lawrence wore elegant red (love her hair too!)

Jessica Biel, Cate Blanchett, Penelope Cruz and Angelina Jolie all chose neutral colours.  My favourite is Cate's dress.

Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway and Emma Watson chose slinky black and dark blue.  Favourite one for me is Sandra's dress, love the colour.

I think this must be my last awards season post for a while.  Need to work on my product reviews now!




  1. I loved Jennifer Lawrence's look! so edgy with her hair X

  2. I know, Jennifer Lawrence can literally carry off any hairstyle!
