For us there are only a handful of nights that fill us with both excitement and tingles... The Acadamey Awards is definitely topping that list. Growing up we loved to watch all the beautiful ladies in their beautiful dresses being celebrated for their art..... You can keep your boring princess dreams. nothing is more dreamy then being a Movie Stars!
As adults, it is still a night where we can escape and dream... Plus we could look at Oscar dresses all year long.
As you know we try not to be mean here on Things We Heart so we are going straight in to what we LOVED last night.
Like Leonardo DiCaprio finally taking home the top award in his craft after 6 nominations and endless fantastic performances over the years. After years of watching this actor nail every single part.... Fill us with emotion with the slightest facial expression, give up all vanity and act his little ass off again and again... Leo finally gets the gold!! Plus he works his ass off to bring about awareness on climate change and trying to save our environment before it is too late!
We don't know if you guys have noticed this, but Leo seems like a total catch ladies!
Moving on to the dresses! Here are some of our favorites!
1. SAOIRSE RONAN- In Calvin Klein
Wearing a custom made Calvin Klein dress Satires (Pronounced like: SEAR-SHA) was simple and young and stunning. We love this color on the Irish-American actress and how she didn't over accessorize, or get too fussy with her hair.
Sometimes all a girl needs is a glittery dress and the perfect makeup. Did you see her makeup? Dreamy. At 21 years old and already on her second Academy Award nomination, we are sure we will see this beauty on the red carpet again very soon.
2. Cate Blanchett- Armani Privè
The word on the streets... OK the word on the red carpet, is that Cate picked out the color sea foam green first thing and then had Armani Privè make the gone for her. While it is slightly more frilly then what Cate usually wears it works for her because she kept everything else simple. Beautiful light makeup and simple jewelry.
We are always fans of this beautiful woman and her sartorial choices are always spot on. She looks like a throw-back to the Golden Era of Hollywood... Like a modern Grace Kelly.
3. Rooney Mara- Givenchy
Rooney Mara never fails to bring the drama. In this sheer white lace Givenchy gown she is killing us. We love the detailing of this dress and the way she always stays so true to herself with her makeup and hair. Rooney is never one to blend into a crowd. By the way have you seen Carol? She is so sweet and fresh looking in that movie you may not even recognize her with out her signature edge.
Although I think I would have gone for a different shoe, these look almost like platform flip flops in this picture, Rooney tops our list in this stunning cut out gown.
5. Lady Gaga- Brandon Maxwell
If you had told us a few years ago that Lady Gaga would have made our best dressed list, and at the Oscars to boot, we would;t have believed it. But in this Brandon Maxwell Gown-Pant combo Lady Gaga was a picture of elegance. Beautiful Old Hollywood waves in her hair and simple makeup.... She completely nailed it. Let's not even get started on her performance!
Emotional, raw and amazingly beautiful. All this woman needs is a piano and she can move all of us. We are so happy that she is growing out if the over the top outfits and gimmicks that she used to employee... Standing there, as her simple, beautiful self, in her complete lack of excess... She shines like never before.
That about sums up the evening for us... Although there were a lot of other looks we loved, those were the ones that lasted with us this morning. Jennifer Lawrence we loved your simple makeup and hair... Margot Robbie you're so freaking hot its amazing, Diane Kruger showed up and killed it at the after parties in her Reem Acra gown.... Brie Larson we are so happy for you! What a talent and a true beauty you have!
