Sunday night’s 88th Academy Awards‘ red carpet didn’t disappoint. I loved loved the dresses tonight worn on all of the blog’s Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California! Here are my faves and why they rocked:
Oh my!! Olivia Wilde, a presenter tonight, killed in this white Valentino Haute Couture Grecian-style gown! Gorg! I loved the crown braid which matched the regal look and the choker was quite stylish, fitting and trendy with her Roger Vivier clutch and Neil Lane jewels.
Another winning look! Charlize Theron, another presenter and former Best Actress Oscar winner, sizzled in this crimson Dior dress with a plunging neckline and long train. Loved that Neil Lane forefinger ring and her other jewels. She had Jimmy Choos on her feet.
Kerry Washington, who presented tonight, looked hawt, haute, hot in this sexy Versace dress with a fitted leather bodice and a deep slit. She accented her look with Harry Winston jewels.
Past Oscar winner and 2016 Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nominee for her role in Steve Jobs Kate Winslet brought her A-game in this strapless black Ralph Lauren gown. She set off her look with Nirav Modi jewelsand Christian Louboutin heels.
Jennifer Garner went with black too but in this off the shoulder sequined and satin Versace with a Salvator Ferragamo clutch (not pictured. she accented her look with Rene Caovilla shoes and Neil Lane jewels. She also presented.
I adored mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen‘s nude with rose embellishment overlay Marchesa gown with a delicate train. It hugged the Tv host & model’s new curves perfectly. Teigen is also wearing Lorraine Schwartz jewels, Stuart Weitzman heels and carrying an elegant wine colored Swarovski clutch.
I thought past Oscar winner and tonight’s presenter Reese Witherspoon looked quite elegant in her strapless eggplant colored Oscar de la Renta dress accentuated with sparkling jewels from Tiffany’s and Jimmy Choo shoes which you can’t see in this photo.
Finally, Emily Blunt‘s blush elegant Prada dress was feminine and soft. The actress went with Niwaka jewels, Sophia Webster heels and a box clutch by Judith Leiber.
My couple fave was Pharrell Williams, who presented tonight, and is seen above his wife Helen Lascichanh who looked dapper as he. I saw people take some jabs at him but I’m digging the singer songwriter and former Oscar nominee’s hair. Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde and John Legend and Teigen were pretty hawt too!
