One of the most memorable happenings of the Academy Awards is the red carpet. Who is wearing what and who is seen with whom, is a precursor to an evening of unforgettable fun. Every fashionista and film fanatic has their eyes glued to the red carpet extravaganza.
Moments on the luxurious and notable Oscar red carpet are more memorable than most; some are shocking and some are downright amazing. No matter the two, the fashion and fun is unforgettable.
With her two-legged side-split dress, the star upstaged everyone at the 2013 Oscars with the “Jolie”; the tilt of the leg out of the dress photo that even has my spray-tan pro telling me, “Okay, now turn and do the Jolie”. The look and pose was either admired or vilified but no matter what, Angie always makes sexy waves on the carpet.
Ford and Flockhart
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart may be perhaps one the most interesting couples we’ve seen grace the red carpet…because it was well, shocking to see them together for the first time. Once everyone got used to the fact that they are indeed a couple, the hype has died down but it was exciting nonetheless. The Ally McBeal star has definitely captured the heart of Indiana Jones.
The world is enamored with this young and talented star, and half of that fascination comes from the fact that Lawrence is extremely candid. Her interview on the 2013 Oscar red carpet with Ryan Seacrest left no doubt in anyone’s mind what she was thinking before the ceremony.
Known as one of the most beautiful actresses in the world with a regal sense of style, Blanchett wore a Givenchy gown to the 2011 Academy Awards that left fans, designers, and style aficionados scratching their heads in confusion. The beaded lavender dress with the strange space-age cut left an impression and had fashion gurus loving it or hating it. Either way, it was a hit.
Sacha Baron Cohen
Cohen’s ability to stay in character at an award ceremony is quite a sight to behold, and his 2012 red carpet portrayal to promote his movie, “The Dictator”, did not disappoint. Spilling the supposed ashes of a certain North Korean dictator onto red carpet mainstay Ryan Seacrest didn’t go over so well, unless you aren’t Seacrest and love random humor.
The Oscar red carpet always stays interesting. It’s one of the highlights of the most prestigious awards show in film history and offers up nothing less than fabulous style, humor, and individualistic greatness from our favorite actors.
