The most glamorous and luxurious event in the world of cinematography, Oscars, comes not only to reward the most striking movies, directors and actors, but also to shake the world once again with the fabulous red carpet fashion. So the Oscars 85th Academy Awards Ceremony took place on February 24, Sunday, 2013 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, bringing lots of excitement, joy, surprise and new gorgeous designer dresses. As always, there were awkward moments and funny ones, foreshadowed awards and unexpected ones, tears and smiles, still our attention was especially caught by the choice of the designer gowns, hairstyles and makeup.
From strapless dresses and mermaid ones to classy designs and gowns with sexy cut-outs, there was every single dress style present on the Oscars 2013 red carpet. And when it comes to the color palette chosen, this year we could see lots of shining colors, muted and bright tones, so there was no room for monotony, boredom and copycatted looks. Here, we bring to your attention some of the most striking red carpet looks at Oscars 2013.
Jennifer Lawrence, who won the 2013 Oscar for the Best Actress of the year for her role in “Silver Linings Playbook’, looked just impeccable in a dramatic nude silk satin Christian Dior Haute Couture strapless gown. Her choice of the brand wasn’t by chance, as she has been selected as the new face of the famous house’s Miss Dior line. She finished off her look with a gorgeous nude makeup and a chic updo that perfectly emphasized her sexy open décolletage.
