best of oscars fashion | 2013

I was a little surprised with some of the fashion choices (what were you thinking Anne Hathaway?) but these are my favourites…

BEST DRESSED: Charlize Theron in Dior Couture

Charlize Theron is on this earth to remind the rest of us that there really is a God. And Charlize is her masterpiece.

My friend Tam was fortunate enough to be watching the live coverage (I was at work. boo.) and texted me and said Charlize was definitely the best dressed – I agree but with a caveat….she shares best dressed with…..

BEST DRESSED: Naomi Watts in Armani Prive
BEST DRESSED: Naomi Watts in Armani Prive

Jay & I watched The Impossible over the weekend and she deserved this nomination. I would go so far to say that she deserved it more than Jennifer Lawrence. Naomi’s performance was stellar and her dress is celestially perfect.

And for the runners up:

Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive

Old world Hollywood glamour. Jessica Chastain’s career trajectory is only matched by her fashion choices.

Stacy Keibler in Naeem Khan

OMG. Glamorous warrior goddess!

Jennifer Garner in

Obsessed with this colour. This is simple and stunning. I love Jennifer Garner.

Jennifer Hudson in Roberto Cavalli

Boom! Sexy is back! Love this colour and the fit is perfect.

Zoe Saldana in Alexis Mabille Couture

Love the dress, don’t love the shoe. Zoe is always a little cutting edge with her fashion choices and the way the white graduates with layers of grey and black is gorgeous.

Olivia Munn in Marchesa

I’ve been obsessing over the newest Marchesa collection and to see it on a Olivia Munn is perfection!

Reese Witherspoon in Louis Vuitton

Can you believe this woman just had a baby? She looks amazing and she’s transcendent in head to toe Louis Vuitton.

That’s it for awards season for while….How will we ever survive?!!!


another lovely blog

I have a new blog buddy! Super exciting!!!

Steph Konar, from [Simply Stephanie] was recently tagged as a lovely blogger and then was kind enough to on-tag moi

From reading Steph’s posts & twitter my impression is that she’s a total darling; cute, funny & joyful; a girl that loves animals (esp. her doggy Moo!), reading, fashion, cooking, travelling, working out & getting the most out of life. Basically a girl after my own heart! 

As part of this lovely blog tagging, we must give up 7 random facts about ourselves. [Check out Steph’s 7 quirky, random facts here.] So get ready for it…here are mine…

  • I always sit in the back of the taxi and then chat the whole way with the driver. I’ve had some strange and sometimes enlightening conversations!
  • Offspring is MY FAVOURITE TV show. Ever. It’s a big call I know.
  • I don’t like people touching my face. And I don’t like my arms touching anything when I’m sleeping. Weird much?
  • I find myself almost laughing out loud when I’m working out hard. I like to think it’s endorphins and not that I’m completely crazy.
  • I cried at the season finale of Glee. Who cares about neanderthal Finn but what’s going to happen with Rachel and Kurt next year?
  • Sometimes I go into radio silence for a couple of days; no seeing anyone, no phone calls, email, facebook, twitter, blogging. I talk all day long at work and sometimes I just need some downtime from being conversational.
  • I’m starting another round of Michelle Bridges 12WBT next week – 12 weeks of super squeaky clean nutrition and intensive training. I’m super pumped and a little apprehensive!

So I’d like to pay it forward to some blogstars who I read & love:

  1. Isabella from [My Fit Station]. Her blog is a total source of fitness inspiration.
  2. Daisy from [No More Fat Kitty]. She’s a fellow Aussie from Brisvegas who’s on a health & fitness journey and I love her posts! see Daisy’s post reply [here]
  3. Tam who is my darling friend and chronicles her awesomeness as a mother / wife / student / social commentator on her blog [Princess Disease] . see Tam’s reply post here

  5. Deb, another Brisvegas goddess who writes the most gutwrenchingly honest musings via her blog [Debbish] see Deb’s reply post here
  6. Jordan from [Meet Me in Paradise] who I just discovered on the blogosphere. I’m jealous because she lives in NYC and has a killer tan! see Jordan’s reply post here
  7. Neen, who until today lived down the road from me, and who is my delightful gorgeous friend and writes about anything and everything on her blog [Random Musings of Neen].
