My Best Dressed List 2018 Oscars Red Carpet

Hey there! 

I wanted to write a quick post about the 2018 Oscars red carpet. I didn’t catch the whole show and, if we are being honest here, I didn’t even see any segment. I just googled Oscars 2018 and saw the results last night before going to sleep haha. I was really happy that Gary Oldman (Sirius Black, if you’ve watched the Harry Potter movies) won the award for Best Leading Actor. Last week I watch the Darkest Hour and thought his acting was great. Also, it was amazing and good that Jordan Peele won the Oscar for Best Writing of an original script. This just shows a person can be versatile.

Besides finding out who won an Oscar, another main attraction is the red carpet. I love looking at photos of the dresses and makeup the actresses wore at the event. It’s just another way to catch on new fashion trends and different makeup inspirations. This year I believe champaign, soft pink, white, and metallic colors were most popular. Soft fabrics, lace, and embroidery were also well liked. Without further ado, here is my top 5 best dressed:

1. Jennifer Garner

I’ve been a Jennifer Garner fan way back when Alias first aired. I think what’s most appealing of her is that she seems very sweet and nice, but still can kick some ass (as her character did in Alias). I love how she dresses up in a not so reviling way, but still manages to look sexy and elegant. This case was no different. What was so striking about her dress is the color, an ultramarine blue (yes, I had to search for the name of that shade of blue). I loved the shape of the dress, it’s long tail and the fabric that runs from her neck to the floor as a long scarf. It was very flattering and she wore it very nice. Also, I loved the makeup she wore with this dress, a warm brown smokey eye.

2. Zoey Deutch 

When I was growing up, my mom and I used to watch Zoey’s mom’s tv serie, the one where she played a cartoonist. Zoey looks a lot like her mom and, as I was looking at photos of her, it reminded me of that show. I really liked the look she went for. It has kind of a vintage, maybe 1920’s, vibe to it. I loved all the embroidery that the dress had, which made it look delicate. The shape was different: V shaped, straight cut, and with many layers. The color, a champagne maybe pink tone, suited her well.

3. Gal Gadot

I love Gal Gadot. She seems like such a down to earth girl, even after a lot of success. She is always smiling and being kind to everyone. I really believe she is Wonder Woman. I loved her dress, a 1920’s flapper-like style with a deep V neck and ruffles. Another aspect that I liked about the dress was the metallic sequins and embroidery.

4. Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong’o looked great in Black Panther and so did she in the red carpet. This was another dress that I liked. It shared the same metallic trend as Gal Gadot. It had a form fitting shape with a straight cut. All gold with a black and bronze sleeve or sort of sash that made it stood out.

5. Allison Williams 

I’m not usually into big dresses or princess type dresses. However, Allison’s outfit was the exception. I really liked it. I don’t know whether it was the nude/cream color, the cristal embroidery, or the beautiful fabric, but all together this dress was beautiful. It looked very delicate and feminine. 

Which dress was your favorite? Did you watch the Oscars?
