academy awards 2013 fashion round-up

I love that Oscars! It brings together three of my favorite things: fashion, movies, and an excuse to entertain. This year I was one film short of seeing all of the Best Picture nominations—I'll get to you, Beasts of the Southern Wild, I promise—and was looking forward to seeing what some of Hollywood's hottest would choose to wear on the biggest night in movies!

For me, there were a few clear best dressed picks and some obvious messes. Who made your best and worst dressed list?

Best Dressed
Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive
This gown was tailored to perfection, and her hair and makeup complemented the look. Stunning!

Sanda Bullock in Elie Saab
She had just enough sheer to keep it sexy in this embroidered beauty. 

Naomi Watts in Armani Prive
Also embracing the shiny trend, Watts opted for an interesting neckline in this figure-flattering number but didn't let the head-to-toe sparkle overwhelm her natural beauty. 

Worst Dressed
Anne Hathaway in Prada
It pains me to put her on this list, but this dress reminded me of my 9th grade homecoming dress (and not in a good way). 

Salma Hayek in Alexander McQueen
Yes, she has a hot body, but this neckline did her no favors, and that hair is a whole different story. 

And here's a shot of part of my spread. I downloaded the printable toppers for free from here.
