Most Revealing and Stylish Fashions at 2013 Oscars and the Oscar Winners– last night’s Oscars produced few shocks with the awards but rather more with people’s wardrobe choices for the evening.
It seems that the “no revealing outfits” memo sent to this year’s attendees at the Grammys was not the sort of thing the Academy wanted to send out to those attending their awards ceremony. As a result the main awards red carpet and the post-Oscars parties had plenty of flesh on show with cleavage, sideboobs and even the odd nipple ring on display.
It all seemed to fit in with a much more relaxed Oscars ceremony as seen with the appointment of Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane as the host of the evening. Reviews were a little mixed as to how Seth did on the night with some pleased at his irreverent approach and others calling his jokes too sexist and even borderline racist. One of the most quoted parts of the evening was Seth’s opening song telling many of the actresses in the room how “We Saw Your Boobs”. Those women included in Seth’s boob tribute included Meryl Streep, Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway, Angelina Jolie, Jessica Chastain and Scarlett Johansson although it was our own Kate Winslet who received the most ribbing as Seth sang of 7 different movies where “We Saw Your Boobs.”
The 2 biggest talking points of the Oscars appear to be Anne Hathaway’s nipples and Jennifer Lawrence’s trip up the steps on the way to collect her Best Actress award.
Anne Hathaway said that she only decided on her outfit some 3 hours before she arrived and the general opinion was that she had not tested the outfit in the open air as a combination of the sheer fabric in her blush Prada gown and no bra made Twitter go wild. It started with tags like #LesNipplerables and quite quickly there was even a new Twitter account @HathawayNipple which picked up over 4k followers.
Anne Hathaway was not the only actress to flash the flesh during the evening as Heidi Klum wore an extremely low-cut top that threatened to see her breasts spill out and Russian model Irina Shayk’s outfit was probably showing even more flesh than Heidi’s.
Apart from plenty for fashion watchers there was also the main business of the evening with the Oscars mostly going the way that most expected. Daniel Day Lewis took home the Best Actor award as nearly everyone had predicted and the Best Movie went to Argo with the expected murmurs going round the building as to why Ben Affleck had not even received a nomination for the Best Director award.
The Best Actress award brought the most drama of the evening as after Jennifer Lawrence was announced as the winner for her role as the recovering sex addict Tiffany Maxwell in Silver Linings Playbook. As Jennifer went up to accept her award she tripped up on her long Dior Haute Couture gown and ended up sprawled on the steps up to the stage. The 22-year old had 2 knights in shining armour come to her rescue but she refused the help offered by both Hugh Jackman and her Silver Linings co-star Bradley Cooper and got herself to her feet and up to the stage to accept her award. Like many Oscar recipients Jennifer certainly won’t forget the night she won the Academy Award but she will have more reasons than most!
Despite the high-profile trip Jennifer’s outfit was generally considered to be one of the most stylish of the night and was a perfect red carpet gown with the proviso that you need to take care when going up steps when a gown has that much fabric.
Other popular outfits on the night included Zero Dark Thirty actress Jessica Chastain’s nude Armani Prive gown which proved a fashion hit with most commentators.
