Make It Hightstreet | The Oscars 2013

So the award season is came to a triumphant end with The Oscars. It's really the going out party you could hope for from such a glitzy award season I've had a super time how about you? Of course many of the best dresses were saved til last - Jennifer Lawrence seems to have walked away with an all round thumbs up from the blogosphere for her stunning pale pink Christian Dior Courture gown. For me, Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen really took the biscuit! Her swept back hair and smokey make up was stunning - a million miles away from when she hit the screens as Karen in Mean Girls. Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta and Sally Fields in Valentino brought a touch of princess to the event with long flowing dresses. With Sofia Vegara missing from the evening due to illness it fell to classic sex-sirens Halle Berry and Catherine Zeta-Jones, plus newcomer Samantha Barks to bring some vavavoom. Halle looked every inch a Bond Girl in a silver sequined Versace number (designed especially for her of course), Ms Zeta-Jones looked classic Hollywood in a gold and nude Zuhair Murad dress and Samantha Barks totally pulled off the plunging neckline in Valentino. The same can't be said for everyone, there were a few dresses that didn't quite knock it out of the park for me. I was a little disappointed with the Jennifer's, both Aniston and Garner went for very simple, slightly bland dresses. Jennifer Garner went for a simple Gucci number which from the back looked exquisitely detailed but from the front just looked a bit meh whilst Jennifer Aniston's red Valentino gown was just...I don't know I just didn't care about it which is probably worse than hating it. Also Adele was back to what she knew best in  black Jenny Packham, I hope she'll branch out into colour again at some point...
On a last note, a lady who has been my favourite all awards season Anne Hathaway. She of course looked beautiful in a soft pink Prada dress with detailed bows at the back and it would have been a perfectly nice dress if I hadn't loved everything else she wore so much! Compare this to her BAFTAs dress or her Screen Actor's Guild Award Dress and it just falls a bit short. But I loved her styling, the hair and the jewels from Tiffany's was all very Audrey Hepburn and went beautifully with her Best Supporting Actress Award...
