Oscars After-Party: Is ‘Who Wore It Less’ Getting Old?

Just when we thought Hollywood’s obsession with ‘who wore it less’ was coming to an end (finally), the Oscars after-party happened.

Rita Ora, Gigi Hadid and Heidi Klum set tongues wagging, or rather dropping, when they all opted to go panty-less to the star-studded events, sporting daring cut away dresses that exposed various parts of their bodies including ribs, side boobs, hips, legs and in Ora’s case, half her butt.

Oscars After-Party: Is 'Who Wore It Less' Getting Old?

The award for most revealing frock well and truly went to model, Irina Shayk however, who wore an Atelier Versace gown, which for lack of a better phrase basically exposed her bits by boasting a cutaway feature down one side of her entire dress.

Of course all of the girls looked ridiculously taught, tight and toned, and for once it wasn’t Miley Cyrus getting her kit off. But seriously ladies, the naked shock value thing is getting old. Every which way we look these days celebs are baring it all for the media and attaching a feminist message to it.

Patricia Arquette proved during her acceptance speech that we don’t need to be naked to get attention or make a statement. Now I’m not saying that the female body isn’t a beautiful thing, because it is! In all shapes and sizes. But arguably what I’m suggesting is that sometimes the message these celebrities are trying to convey often gets lost in the nakedness of it all.

So ladies, put away your nipples and PLEASE put some underwear on. Sometimes less really isn’t more.

2015 Oscars Trend: Porcelain Skin

As Hollywood’s elite took to the red carpet for the 2015 Oscar Awards today, we noticed there was something missing: fake tan! This year the A-list went ‘au naturel’ and ditched their bronzers in favour of polished porcelain skin.

Celebrity make-up artist Lee Pycroft recently told the Daily Mail: “Alabaster skin is a chic, classy, beautiful look that’s been gunning for a renaissance. It’s been cherished by the fashion world for several years – think of all those Prada campaigns with Karen Elson – and now it’s taking centre stage.”

Whether sporting a red, grey or even black dress, ivory skin was certainly the most prominent trend at this years award ceremony, with stars including Margot Robbie, Scarlett Johansson, Sienna Miller and Anna Kendrick embracing their paler side.

Best Celebrity Fashion at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party

The only place to be after the Oscars is the Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Graydon Carter. And the fashion at the after-parties is always more interesting than on the Oscars red carpet. Here are our picks for the hottest after-party celebrity fashion.

Golden girl Lupita Nyong’o changed into a sea foam green Miu Miu gown with beaded fringe on the neckline. So pretty.

vanietyfair2

We much prefer Amy Adams’ one-shoulder Grecian Carolina Herrera after-party dress to her navy Oscars gown – what do you think?

vanityfair6

Kate Hudson continued her Oscars fashion winning streak, changing into this gorgeous Zuhair Murad gown.

vanityfair3

Reese Witherspoon looked lovely in a calf-length BOSS dress with plunging neckline (and side boob!).

vanityfair5

Stunning Kate Beckinsale was statuesque in a golden Elie Saab dress – even her hair and skin is golden!

Diane Kruger always makes interesting fashion choices, and we love her sheer lace Valentino dress.

Oscars Worst Red Carpet Dresses

What would the Oscars be without the worst dressed celebrities? We’re live updating the worst of the Oscars red carpet.

oscars13

We can’t help but think Julia Roberts looks frumpy in this black lace number. But it looks like peplum is the big trend this year…

oscars10

Emma Watson wowed us at the Golden Globes in her tangerine pants-dress, but this glittery tank dress doesn’t really do anything for us.

oscars9

Anne Hathaway is statuesque in this Gucci gown, but isn’t it a little, meh?  She usually looks amazing on the red carpet, but we were hoping for a little more edge at the Oscars.

oscars2

Naomi Watts’ Calvin Klein Collection dress is lovely, but the styling messes with the overall look. The brushed back hair, the chunky necklace, and the pointy shoulders detract from what could have been a Grace Kelly-esque red carpet appearance.

oscars8

What happened to Elvira, I mean, Margot Robbie? The dark hair, the dark lips, the bad 80’s formal dress…don’t you hate when bad fashion happens to the beautiful people?

oscars9

There’s nothing really wrong with Amy Adams’ navy Gucci Premiere gown, but it’s just a little boring. Is it a carbon copy of Amy’s? The peplum detail is unnecessary.

oscars7

And there’s nothing really wrong with Jennifer Lawrence’s red Dior dress, with diamond necklace that drapes down her back. But she’s 23, and this is a much older dress. After all the fun dresses she’s been wearing on the red carpet lately, this is a bit of a letdown.

oscars4

Anna Kendrick is really dressing older than she is, and the midriff detail just ruins an already dull look.

Oscars Best Red Carpet Dresses

We’re live updating the Oscars red carpet best dressed celebrities from Cate to Lupita. Who is your best dressed?

oscars15

It almost doesn’t matter what Brad and Angelina wear to the Oscars: they’re the power couple we can’t take our eyes off. Sure, we preferred Angelina’s 2013 thigh-high split gown to this year’s sparkly Elie Saab, but hey, it’s Brangelina!

oscars14

Sandra Bullock is incredible in Gravity, and we love her Oscars red carpet choice: elegant strapless navy. And great hair.

oscars11

Charlize Theron is always the glamazon and she rocks this strapless Dior dress with pulled back hair.

oscars12

Kate Hudson is so elegant in this 1920’s-inspired ivory number with plunging neckline. Love it!

oscars6

Cate Blanchett stuns is her first truly red carpet gown (she’s known for her funky and unconventional choices) but we love this sparkly nude Armani Prive gown that compliments her blonde locks and alabaster skin so well.

oscars3

Julie Delpy is the epitome of old Hollywood glamour, complete with Veronica Lake waves and classic red lips.

oscars1

All eyes were on Lupita Nyong’o after her red carpet wins this award season, and she hasn’t disappointed at the Oscars, wearing this enchanting white princess gown and matching headband.

oscars5

Kerry Washington looks beautiful in her strapless purple silk Jason We gown, with matching plum lips.

Best Pre-Oscars Parties Celebrity Fashion

As we countdown to the Oscars, let’s take a look at some of the incredible pre-Oscars parties celebrity fashion from Cate Blanchett to Anne Hathaway.

Taylor Swift looked adorable in this white lace Oscar de la Renta dress at the super-exclusive Weinstein Company’s pre-Oscars party at the Montage Beverly Hills.

Model Petra Nemcova injected some much-needed colour in her radiant yellow silk gown.

Cate Blanchett continued her pre-Oscars fashion winning streak in this Stella McCartney jumpsuit and shoes at the Sony Pictures Classics 2014 Oscar Dinner at STK Steakhouse, here with Blue Jasmine costar Sally Hawkins.

Sienna Miller wore this simple apple green Chanel dress to the Chanel & Charles Finch Pre-Oscar Dinner at L.A.’s Madeo Restaurant.

Also at the same party, Anne Hathaway rocked this short Chanel LBD with little more than a slick of red lipstick.

Oscars Best Dressed


It’s fashion’s night of nights and this year’s Oscars red carpet is one of the best ever, with spectacular looks from Hollywood favourites Michelle Williams and Milla Jovovich to our very own Rose Byrne.


Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

Could these two look any more glam? The last celebs to hit the red carpet, they really saved the best for last. Classic black, thigh high split and red lips, no wonder Brad looks like the cat that ate the canary.


Rose Byrne

Shimmering black Vivienne Westwood paired with that fringe and blunt bob. So sexy.


Milla Jovovich

Gorgeous white one-shoulder Elie Saab is reminiscent of old Hollywood.


Rooney Mara

Love this edgy look complete with blood red lips and blunt fringe.


Michelle Williams

Cute as a button, Michelle’s red gown goes beautifully with the pixie do, red lips and diamond necklace.


Natalie Portman

Isn’t Natalie lovely with her husband fiancé Benjamin? Especially in vintage Christian Dior, circa 1954.


Giuliana Rancic

Giuliana might host the red carpet arrivals, but she belongs on this year’s best dressed list. An ode to 1920’s glamour.


Stacey Kiebler

Even if George Clooney doesn’t win an Oscar for The Descendants, he’ll take home an Oscar in the form of his golden statuesque girlfriend Stacey.


Jessica Chastain

It’s not the most original of red carpet looks, but The Help’s Jessica Chastain pulls off this ornate brocade gown with flair.

Cate Blanchett’s subtle smokey eye beautifully complemented her Givenchy Couture lavender and neon dress at the Academy Awards. Celebrity makeup artist Robin Fredriksz gave Cate an “icy cool look” with cooler toned shades using Lancome while her skin was prepped as always with SK-II skincare. Celebrity hair stylist Renya Xydis completed the look using ghd products.


Get The Look:

Skin

Cate has used SK-II for 10 years and as always used the following products to prep her skin:

– Facial Treatment Essence: After cleansing, apply by sprinkling a teaspoon into hands, rubbing together and pressing gently and evenly onto the face and neck.

– Whitening Spots Specialist: Cate says: “Using Whitening Spots Specialist means I don’t have to rely on whitening masks alone, I can maintain the evenness of my skin’s tone and ensure it stays crystal clear on a daily basis, which gives me a great sense of confidence in my skin’s resilience.”

– Facial Treatment Mask: A deeply intensive, moisture-boosting mask that hydrates the skin with Pitera® to promote more radiant and smoother skin.

Oscars Fashion Round up

Oscars fashion round up


And the winner is… Charlize
Classy dresses in soft shades adorned with lavish beadwork were the winners at this year’s Academy Awards. From subtle peach and pale lemon to beautifully rich creams, the Oscars frocks were for the most part, tasteful and classic. Looking gorgeous in Tom Ford for Gucci, was best actress winner Charlize Theron. Topping off what is surely one of the best years in this young actress’s life, statuesque South African-born star was awarded the industry’s highest accolade for her portrayal as a serial killer in the film Monster.



Uma Thurman – maybe her shoes are really nice?
Pale and interesting
Nicole Kidman looked divine in a pale green Chanel gown, and best supporting actress winner Renee Zellweger looked sleek in a simple white Carolina Herrera strapless frock. And while pastel shades and simple designs worked for some, one Hollywood dame didn’t quite pull the look off, looking pale and uninteresting in an unflattering ruffled, doily number. Uma Thurman – my Nan wants her toilet roll cover back! Rumour has it, she at least had the good sense to change into something else before attending the post-awards parties.



Naomi and Heath – a nuptial dress rehearsal?
Retro glamour
The fashion of the night seemed to hark back to Hollywood’s Golden Age, with lots of classic Jean Harlow-eqsue 1930’s style hair-dos, soft curls and figure-hugging gowns. Best actress nominee Naomi Watts was no match for Charlize in the awards stakes, but looked every inch the winner in a flesh-toned Versace number covered in hundreds of sparkly crystals. Some stars bucked the trend for pretty pastels, including a youthful looking Catherine Zeta Jones opting for vibrant scarlet vintage Versace, to show off her fab post-baby bod.



Jude Law and Sienna
And the men?
Johnny Depp was particularly charming to 13-year-old best supporting actress Keisha Castle-Hughes, even giving the star struck teen a kiss for good luck! But what was the story with his terrible hair? Wispy fringe and middle part – urgh! Jude Law looked ravishing, as usual and former best actor winner Adrien Brody looked smart in an Ermenegildo Zegna all black, slim fitting suit. Showing impeccable grooming, Adrien also freshened up with a quick burst of breath freshening spray after announcing Charlize Theron winner of best actress award. Who could forget his sensational acceptance pash with presenter Halle Berry at last year’s awards? What a charmer!
