Designer Whitney Port loved the fashion at the 2013 Academy Awards. We asked her to break down her picks for the best-dressed ladies at this year’s ceremony. The big winners? The A-listers in form-fitting couture, of course!
Django Unchained actress Kerry Washington opted for an embellished Miu Miu creation at the 2013 Oscars. It was — hands down — one of the best looks of the night, according to Whitney.
“I thought the beading was fantastic on the top of her dress and the color was just so vibrant and playful,” Port said of the gown. “It fit her beautifully, and I loved the simple little bow belt to accessorize.”
Jennifer Lawrence walked away with two prizes tonight: the Best Actress Oscar — and the best-dressed award from Whitney.
“[Lawrence] loves the strapless look, and while it was simple on top, I loved how dramatic it got on the bottom,” the designer told SheKnows of the Dior Haute Couture gown. “I am always a sucker for a princess dress, and I think it was very fitting for her. White is always a stunner as well.”
One of Whitney’s favorite looks at the 2013 Oscars was Naomi Watts’ futuristic Armani gown.
“Absolutely loved the neckline and give her a lot of credit for taking a bit of a risk,” Whitney said. “It was edgy and funky, and I loved the gun-metal sequins.”
Charlize Theron rocked the pixie cut — and a bit of side boob — on the 2013 Oscars red carpet in her Dior Haute Couture.
“Though her dress was a bit wrinkled, I love the edginess of this. I love the streamlined silhouette and the stark white color. She looked statuesque and just really cool and chic.”
Zoe Saldana took a little risk with her Alexis Mabille Couture gown — and it paid off.
“Love the floral applique on the top of her dress. It was very feminine and gentle but edgy at the same time. I also loved the ombre ruffles. It was a funky choice for the Oscars, and I love someone willing to take a chance.”
Only Halle Berry could pull off this custom Versace number — and pull it off she did!
“Love the geometrical sequins and the silhouette,” Port told us. “She looked glamorous and sexy, as she always does.”
She sure does, Whitney!
