Guest Post | Awards Season 2013: This Year’s Highlights

Awards season has come and gone, so it’s time to look back at the glitz, glamour and gossip that graced the red carpet during the most anticipated star-studded events of the season. Let’s not kid ourselves; no one tuned in for those teary-eyed acceptance speeches – thanks to programmes like E!’s Live from the Red Carpet, it’s all about the fashion.

The Golden Globes got the party started in January, and the great British weather didn’t deter the A-listers from stepping out in this season’s finest at the BAFTAs at the beginning of February. This year has been all about the floor-length, flowing gown.

Perhaps inspired by Angelina Jolie’s famous ‘leg bomb’ at last year’s Oscars, there were no shortage of legs on show this year. Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley, model Miranda Kerr and Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria were just some of the celebrities flashing a bit of thigh on the red carpet at the Golden Globes.
The SAG Awards showcased the best of monochrome, with leading ladies Claire Danes and Tina Fey leading the style stakes in stunning black floor-length gowns.

Anne Hathaway has been winning awards for her style as well as her turn as Fantine in Les Mis, and she continued her winning streak in a Burberry gown with stud detail at the BAFTAs. The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence kept things edgy yet classic in a nude, embellished column dress by Dior, and Laura Bailey stunned in a minimalist evening maxi dress.

For the Oscars themselves, Jessica Chastain wowed in a strapless Armani Prive gown while Amanda Seyfried impressed with an elegant Alexander McQueen dress in lavender. The style exchibited by these two, plus Kristen Stewart and Reese Witherspoon, showed that leading ladies will continue to pull out all the stops for the Academy Awards, even if they aren’t lucky enough to leave the Dolby Theatre with a statuette.
