Elton John Academy Awards Viewing Party

Monday, February 27, 2012

20th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party Hosted By Sir Elton John And David Furnish.

Guests arrived at the Academy Awards Viewing Party for cocktails followed by a gala dinner and viewing of the 84th Academy Awards® telecast.  

The celebrities were shining in their gorgeous gowns & i must say that most of them were better dressed than The Oscars!

My favourite dressed celebrities were Ashley Tisdale, Dita Von Teese & Zhang Ziyi.

Ashley Tisdale

Dita Von Teese In Jenny Packham

The burlesque beauty stunned in Jenny Packham Fall 2012 gown.
Bulgari jewels, Louboutin heels and a Swarovski clutch completed her look.

Gwen Stefani In Zuhair Murad Couture 

Her long-sleeve black lace dress with black crystal beadwork and cherry-red floral appliqués needed that runway belt. 

Heidi Klum In Atelier Versace

She looked fabulous wearing an Atelier Versace Spring 2012 dress, which is our first look at this collection on the red carpet.
Her sexy dress with an open-back was teamed with Christian Louboutin ‘Duvette’ pointed toe pumps and gold statement jewelry.
A simple updo, smoky eyes and pink lippie completed her look.

Katy Perry In Blumarine

Just picture how amazing this full length silk tulle gown embellished with silver and black iridescent sequins would have been with her black hair.


Malin Akerman In Sportmax 

Her fully embroidered gown with cut-out details in the neckline and a patent leather waistband was styled with Chopard jewels and beachy waves.

Miley Cyrus In Roberto Cavalli

Her floral embroidered gown with a chiffon skirt with an open back is lovely, but the whole look feels too mature for the actress.
That red lip colour is gorgeous on her.

Rose McGowan In Paule Ka

The actress opted for a Paule Ka gown from the 2012 Black Carpet Collection.
Her one-shoulder tangerine organza and black jersey gown was teamed with an Edie Parker clutch and David Webb jewels.

Vanessa Hudgens In Georges Chakra Couture

She wore a gorgeous Georges Chakra Spring 2012 Couture gown.
Her gold strapless mermaid gown with leather foiled cut-outs was thankfully modified to remove the halter strap. 
Vanessa’s hair already makes this look feel very matronly; removing the strap keeps the look youthful. A vintage gold crystal mesh Swarovski clutch completed her look.

Zhang Ziyi In Elie Saab

Zhang’s Prussian blue gown with embellished details from the designers’ Pre-Fall 2012 collection was teamed with grey Elie Saab platforms, a black python Swarovski ‘Nirvana Star’ clutch and Bulgari jewels completed her look.
A bold red lip colour and a simple sweeping updo completed this beautiful look.
Danica McKellar

 Kim & Kourtney Kardashian

Carmen Electra

Nina Dobrev In J. Mendel

 The ‘Vampire Diaries’ actress looked beautiful in a black J.Mendel Fall 2012 gown, shown just a few weeks ago during his red-carpet ready Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week presentation.

With a cut-out detailed deep V-neck and pleated skirt, Nina shows just the right amount of skin, without fear of a wardrobe malfunction.
A sparkling Jimmy Choo clutch, Chopard jewels and Brian Atwood heels complete the look.

Marisa Miller 

Stana Katic 

Paz Vega In Stéphane Rolland Couture 

The Spanish actress was stunning wearing a Stéphane Rolland Spring 2012 Couture gown.
Her long sleeved white gown with a fanned detail jutting from the hip might be a deal breaker for some, but I love that it’s very different from what we often see on the red carpet, plus I’m a huge fan of Stéphane Rolland.

Dianna Agron In Carolina Herrera

The ‘Glee’ star went floral in a Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2012 dress. The flowing silk mushroom print gown.

Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2012

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad
The Zuhair Murad Fall 2011 Couture gown sparkles in a deep plum shade, slightly lightening in an ombre effect as it trails into a cranberry-hued skirt.
J.Lo accessorizes with H. Stern jewels and a Swarovski bag and kept her hair in a high-bun.

Elizabeth Banks In Chadwick Bell

Her green, navy polka-dotted long-sleeve gown with a navy feathered skirt and velvet waistband was the most interesting look of the night.
Elizabeth teamed her dress with a Jimmy Choo ‘Cameo’ clutch and Bulgari jewels.

Kate Bosworth In Prabal Gurung

Her black tulle long sleeve dress with filigree cutwork sparkled with jet beads and Sistine blue crystals and was accented with a heavy black belt.
In order to prevent the look from becoming too Vegas showgirl, Kate kept her accessories simple, wearing black Christian Louboutin pumps and a Christian Dior bag.
A slick bun and natural makeup complete the look.

Katie Holmes In Elie Saab Couture

Katie looked stunning wearing a sapphire-blue strapless chiffon gown with an embellished bodice and velvet waistband from the designers’ Fall 2011 Couture collection to the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar party.
A Lanvin white lacquered minaudiere with an eagle detail completed her look.

David Beckham looked very dapper wearing a Christian Dior suit, whilst she wore a dove grey strapless gown from her Fall 2012 collection.
Her fit-like-a-glove gown was teamed with the now signature double wrapped leather belt and an emerald ring.
A simple updo, kohl-rimmed eyes and a nude lip colour completed her look.
They both look gorgeous and complement each other very well.

Zoe Saldana In Marios Schwab

She donned a Marios Schwab Fall 2012 gown which was presented last week during London Fashion Week.
The satin-and-sheer fresh-off-the-runway look features Swarovski Elements, which means that Zoe didn’t have to select any additional jewels, but she added Pomellato earrings and a simple ring.

Amy Adams In Vivienne Westwood

Veronica Lake-styled waves would have complimented the beautifully structured top of the dress, but she she wears her hair down often, this updo is a refreshing change.

Kate Hudson In Vintage Versace

She looked amazing wearing a fiery red vintage Versace beaded gown with a fringed skirt.
Kate complemented her gown with diamond stud earrings, diamond bracelets, and nude Christian Louboutin ‘Lady Peep’ pumps.
She finished her look with gorgeous wavy blonde locks and flawless makeup.
As always, she is glowing.
