85th annual academy awards

I love the Oscars because everyone looks their best. I feel like they let lots of weird ugly things go at the Grammys, but at the Oscars it's a much stricter dress code- couture gowns and fly tuxedos only. No meat dresses allowed. Here are my favorite looks from last night's awards ceremony in no order.

First and foremost, everyone bow down to Jennifer Lawrence, best actress of the year. She was a vision in Dior Haute Couture and only made people fall more in love with her after tripping upstage. Her gown was one of those that was begging to be taken off the runway and worn on the red carpet. Kerry Washington looked darling in Miu Miu. My favorite part about this dress was the dainty little bow. So sweet and feminine.
Amanda Seyfried's Alexander McQueen. I'm not obsessed with the dress, but she has such a unique beauty and wore it so perfectly. Halle Berry's Versace is kind of space cadet, but I thought it was a great choice to celebrate the 70 (or something) years of James Bond.
I worship Samantha Barks and that Valentino isn't even cute but she is beautiful. "On My Own" is my favorite song in Les Miserables and her performance was heart wrenching. Sam YOU ARE PERFECT and my biggest Les Mis crush. Remember last post I included that hot pink Marchesa and said someone should wear it on the red carpet? I included this look cuz Fan Bingbing did.
I love pink. Maria Menounos looks like ethnic Barbie and I'm into it. Dress by Romona Keveza. J.Law does it again in metallic Calvin Klein at the Vanity Fair after party. So sexycool. Love her.
I'm just gonna say it but if Adele were skinny, she would rule the world. Because Adele is BEAUTIFUL and looked so fabulous during her Skyfall performance. And she's wearing Burberry sooo. Jennifer Garner is my parents' celebrity crush, and I have always had a soft spot for her. She looked so stunning last night and it warmed my heart to see her tear up after Argo won Best Picture. Her dress was Gucci and lovely.

My favorite part of the evening was not surprisingly the Les Mis tribute. Sorry that I sobbed continuously for the last 20 minutes of that movie and get emotional listening to the soundtrack. When Samantha Barks made her entrance for this performance she was the most perfect human in the Dolby Theatre. This was my favorite dress/person/body/creature from the 2013 Oscars. Dress is Jenny Packham. She is my dream girl.
Our friends hosted an Oscars party so we got to play dress up. I call this my "glam baptism" dress. It was actually my high school graduation dress and made by my mom's best friend's mother. Preston would make the cutest date to the Oscars!
