Red Carpet Bay Area’s favorite looks from theOscars, 2014, have a few things in common — they are polished, elegant and simple, without unnecessary embellishment:
Lupita Nyong’o in a blue custom-made gown by Prada; she said the gown reminded her of home in Nairobi. Not only do we love the gown, but we applaud her unique hairstyle that worked beautifully with her very short hair.
Amy Adams in a Gucci Premiere gown; she said she was inspired by Kim Novak in Vertigo. Her bare decolletage with colorful earrings from Tiffany & Co., combined with the classic French twist hairstyle embodies the simple yet elegant look we love.
Kristen Bell‘s classic updo and minimal jewelry complimented the intricately detailed and structured mermaid-style gown byRoberto Cavalli.
Camila Alves in a custom made Gabriela gown wanted to present herself as an extension of her husband Matthew McConaughey. We think her goal was expertly achieved.
Cate Blanchett in a beaded silk tulle gown that perfectly matched her skin, by Armani Prive; perfectly paired with her gently waved golden hairstyle by Robert Vetica and statement diamond earrings from Chopard.
