The Oscars 2014 - Our Best Dressed

So last night saw the 86th Academy Awards take place, did you stay up to watch? Personally we would have loved to see Amy Adams and Leo win one of those coveted trophies but what we were really interested in of course was the outfits. The ultimate Red carpet event, you can always guarantee some seriously stylish gowns and some seriously expensive jewels come the night, and the Oscars 2014 didn't disappoint. Here's our round up of the best dressed and the top trends from the evening... Shimmery Dresses at Oscars 2014The Bobby Dazzlers Sparkle, shine and metallics had to be one of the top trends from the red carpet this year and our faves included a Great Gatsby esque Oscar De La Renta flapper dress from Jennifer Garner, an un-recognisable Lady Gaga in sophisticated Versace and a shimmering Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab. Miranda Kerr also won the vote for after party gowns with her slinky silver number just making us even more jealous of how gorgeous she is. Oscars 2014 The best DressedThe Queens of Embellishment As well as full on shimmer, adornment and embellishment was key this year with nearly every A-lister opting for some sort of sparkly add ons. We loved Best Actress winner Cate Blanchett's Armani Prive number while Jessica Biel looked every inch the movie star in her Chanel couture and Sally Hawkins brought the house down in a divine Valentino number. Black Dress trend at the Oscars 2014The Black Swans If in doubt go for a black dress right? Well these gorgeous stars turned the simple black dress into something other wordly. Julia Roberts doesn't seem to be ageing one bit and looked stunning in her Givenchy lace gown, Charlize Theron opted for plunging necklines and long trains in Dior and Emma Watson looked far more chic than her years in Vera Wang. Lupita Nyong'o at Oscars 2014The Ones that 'Blue' us Away From Amy Adams in sophisticated Navy Gucci, Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen and Lupita Nyong'o's amazing icy blue Prada, we were bowled over by these blue hues. Jennifer Lawrence at Oscars 2014The Curveballs There are always a few standout looks from celebs that seem to do their own thing regardless of the trends (and most of the time that's exactly why we love them). This year the curveball awards go to Kate Hudson who turned up in a beautiful caped Versace gown and Jennifer Lawrence who was one of the only stars to go for a bright colour with her fiery orange Dior.

The Top Trends from The Golden Globes 2014

We love a good red carpet event here at ALOL and this years Golden Globes was a feast for the eyes as the celebrities hit the carpet in all sorts of beautiful gowns, statement accessories and to die for jewellery. Here we've rounded up some of our favourite trends from the night and do let us know what you loved too. Top Trends from the Golden Globes 2014... 1. Red Red at Golden Globes 2014 Red was the colour of the night with a whole host of celebrities ditching the usual black or metallic gowns for show stopping scarlet numbers, without even a hint of carpet clashing worry. Our favourite outfit of the night had to go to Emma Watson who pulled off this Dior backless dress and trouser combo to perfection, but we also loved Amy Adams plunging neckline and Nupita Nyoung's Caped Ralph Lauren showcase. 2. Turquoise jewels Turquoise jewels at Golden Globes 2014 A theme for the night was all black ensembles teamed with bright blue and turquoise jewellery. Obviously we approve of any stand out jewellery on the red carpet and we thought both Emma Roberts and Sofia Verbara pulled it off to perfection. Which do you prefer? Get the look with our top turquoise pieces. 3. Monochrome Golden Globes 2014 Fashion Clean lines and monochrome colourways were top of the bill for many of the stars, and Tom Ford could be thanked for most of these styles. Our favourite monochrome looks were Hayden Panitierre and Girls star Allison Williams in Alexander McQueen. Get the monochrome look here. 4. Emerald Green Emerald Green at Golden Globes 2014 On the jewellery side, many of our stars opted for emerald green gems. Jennifer Lawrence, Mila Kunis and Helen Mirren were all spotted in beautiful emerald earrings, while Olivia Wilde went head to toe in the colour with a slinky Gucci gown. We were green with envy at it all. Shop emerald pieces here. 5. Slicked back Hair Hair Trends Golden Globes 2014 The top hair trend of the evening seemed to be of the slick variety. From Hayden Pannittiere and Jessica Chastain in backwards bouffants, and Kelly Osbourne and Drew Barrymore slicking it sideways. We're still not convinced on this hair trend, what do you think?
