2014 Academy Awards

Last night's show was probably my favorite Oscars ceremony in a very long time, and not just because there were so many gorgeous gowns to choose from, but the speeches were so inspiring, and Ellen DeGeneres is a genius! She really should host every single year. 

Before I get to my picks, though, I just wanted to take this time to give congrats to Lupita Nyong'o, who inspires as an actress, fashion icon, African, and woman! I'd also like to say congrats to Matthew McConaughey. I've been a huge fan of his since forever and I could not be more happy for him, plus, he gave one of the best speeches I've ever heard! Also, Jared Leto was amazing, and his win was well-deserved; I've also loved him forever...and he has the best ombre hair in all of Hollywood. Honestly. 

Now, lets get to what's most important, the best-dressed of the Academy Awards.

Lupita Nyong'oPrada  BEST DRESSED



A lot of ladies brought their A-game for this awards show. So much so, I have a tie for my best dressed. On a not-so-great-note, my darling Lupita did not make the cut this time. *GASP* I love the risk she took, but it was too-matchy-matchy for my taste. Had she worn different shoes, who knows, I may be singing a different tune...

Brandy Jean Fares Couture  BEST DRESSED



Can I get an AMEN?! I loved, loved the dresses at the BAFTAS. So far, this has been my favorite red carpet, of the award season. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that the Oscar gowns will be able to compete, because the BAFTAS have set the bar very, very high.

Uma Thurman Versace   BEST DRESSED



I'm really into Valentine's Day this year. I think it's because I am completely and utterly in love with my life, and I just want to spread my joy! 

Whether you're in a a relationship or not, remember to love yourself first and that love comes in so many different, amazing forms.  And though I think Valentine's Day is sweet way to go all out for your loved ones, make sure you let your loved ones know how much you love them every day!

When it comes to music awards shows, my expectations aren't as high as with say  film or television awards shows. I don't mean that as a dig, there are many musicians, such as RiRi, that I think are fashion icons who always slay on the red carpet. It's just my opinion that musicians take more risks with fashion, but that generally means that when the miss they miss hard. I mean, do you not remember Bjork in that swan dress?! Yikes!

However, I was pleasantly surprised with how many looks I actually liked from this year's awards show, especially since I could barely think of many for the SAGs. It was actually hard from me to pick a best dressed winner....
