So, overnight, the A-Listers were out in force across the pond for the biggest night of the year in celebland – The Oscars.
Hollywood was the place to be, but apart from who won what, the thing that interests us more here at Mojomums is who WORE what?!
The Oscars’ famous red carpet has to be the most critical of places for the poor fashion conscious film stars who all want to look amazing, and who live in fear of being ridiculed for wearing something that doesn’t quite measure up to the expectation of the fashion world high and mighty!
What They Wore
You can check out this website for images of all the beautiful gowns that everyone wore last night but for us, our favourites were:
Amy Adams – Elegant in royal blue Gucci Couture.
Lady Gaga – Looked almost normal in a stunning Versace creation. My favourite I have to say! She wore two dresses on the night but the second one isn’t worth mentioning, she shouldn’t have been greedy and stuck to just the one!
Cate Blanchart – In an Armani ultra glamourous number.
Jennifer Lawrence – Sophisticated in bright red Dior.
Lupita Nyongo – Stunning in a beautiful, flowing pale blue Prada dress.
So what was the gossip, if any?
Well, Jennifer Lawrence slipped over AGAIN, some of the celebs ordered and ate PIZZA during the awards, Benedict Cumberbatch photobombed many a celeb red carpet photo and the best celebrity selfie EVER went viral on Twitter, making it the most retweeted photo of all time, beating President Obama’s previous record when he tweeted a photo of himself with wife Michelle after winning the election for the second time in 2012.
The photo includes Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Bradley Coooper, Kevin Spacey, Lupita Nyongo, and Helen Degeneres…. If you spot any more please let us know!
So, down to the nitty gritty I suppose and those all important winners.
