The 84th Annual Oscar's Awards came on television last night, I found myself looking forward to them being aired and we at LaPaz Image/Event Consultants had a client attending plus a Fabulous Couture Fashion Week Designer, that we are incredibly fond of who dressed several who walked on the Red Carpet!! Oscar Logo The biggest part of the Oscars is the who is wearing what, be it a hit or miss and we couldn’t wait to see the top stars at their best! Plus not only the Oscars, it was also the Vanity Fair Party and Elton John's 20th Annual Charity Gala and we want to give you all of it!! Be it good, the bad and the ugly and with this being stated we are going to jump in with both feet and we cannot wait to hear what your thought are of what we thought about the Red Carpet Affairs:



We’re going to jump right off the edge of the table with this Angelina Jolie in Black Atelier Versace I’m sorry but, this gown was a statement piece if we may say so ourselves but what in the world was she thinking when she kept throwing her leg out of the slit in a ridiculous pose with a gown with a built in hip.. lol!!  Honestly the more that we watched her take this pose the more we felt like screaming to Angelina, please get a tan, tone up your leg and eat then put your leg out on display for us to look at!! She looked like at one point she was trying to make some sort of vulgar statement without really going over the top but, she knew it was wrong when she took center stage and hit the pose once again that it made her laugh at the Ridiculousness of this! 

JESSICAJessica from the Help looked overwhelmed but also oddly beautiful in this to die for in Alexander McQueen the detailing and embroidery was beyond words. We loved Jessica’s simplistic approach to her makeup as well as the hair very nice.

Giuliana Rancic

Giuliana Rancic back

Giuliana Rancic in Tony Ward  looked really good in this gown! Giuliana, really looked lovely and due with all that has taken place in this year with cancer, the miscarriages she knocked this out of the box, not feeling this hair but everything else is just beautiful!

GEORGE STACYGeorge Clooney and Stacy Kiebler-Marchesa Personally for me this dress wasn’t all that for me in all honesty. I didn’t care for the rosette at the hip and puddling but, one thing She looked gorgeous in this color again her skin and she just needed a different dress.

Maria MenounosMaria Menounos in Lucia Hohan she looked fabulous in this gown and color! Maria, has really has taken her style to the highest of heights. Remember Maria was the special correspondent on Access Hollywood with Billy Bush, then she became one of their leading Journalist from their she moved on into other things like walking the Red Carpet and not working the Red Carpet FABULOUS!!

Rooney MaraRooney Mara wore this white gown by Givenchy made a grand entrance and had everyone talking from Fashion Police, Extra, Access Hollywood, Entertainment Tonight and the Evening News but, here we are again to tell you something so contrary from what everyone is saying. We didn’t care for this particular gown on Rooney, because of her particular body-type it didn’t flatter her rectangular or ruler shaped body, it did accentuate that she has very broad shoulders, very narrow hips and not cleavage. In photos the gown looked like it fit her body perfectly but, in all honesty it did not at all, we hope we didn’t just smash your thoughts and opinions.

Sarah Hyland  Now this is breathtaking, beautiful, elegant and so very age appropriate on this young actress! Sarah Hyland wore Alberta Ferretti, the color and style and cut really looked wonderful on her body and her hair in the up sweep was beautiful her makeup was very clean and fresh with the attention being drawn to her eye. Perfect one of our top picks on best dressed and we love how well she carried this off.

Giving you a break from the Oscars Red Carpet we have to run you over to Vanity Fair party and Sir Elton Johns Charity Party!! Its so much going on because they also have the Ball that all the stars hope to be able to attend and Elton John gives his Charity Gala at the exact same time and its fantastic!!

Dita Von TeeseDita Von Teese looked Gorgeous in this pale pink Jenny Packham gown that had such beautiful detailing on the shoulders and around the neck! All of the jewels and the clutch came from Harry Winston's and this amazing gown made the Red Carpet beam!

Claire DanesClaire Danes wore this Valentino frock to the Vanity Fair party and no we don’t think this was such a great look and matter of fact this gown is so screaming retro -Throw me back its just not even funny.  There isn’t anything much we really can say about this gown other than, Claire step away from the gown. Lol!!

Olivia WildeI know Olivia Wilde is just stunning in this Gucci Gown and we loved the simplicity of this look the black corset with the sleek hair and makeup and the necklace that was worth more than you and I put together would ever purchase. AMAZING!!

PENELOPE CRUZBeautiful Penelope Cruz always looks flawless and she ROCKS that old Hollywood look effortlessly but, seems like she does it just a little to often and that she falls back on this. Penelope selected to wear Armani Prive the color looked so gorgeous against her skin and the cut flattered her body-type only thing we didn’t like was how tight set Penelope’s hair was. When doing old Hollywood, you need to be careful and not pinch the look to much as Penelope has here and it should be loose and sweet.

Sofia VergaraSofia Vergara looked brilliant, elegant and ready to mix and mingle in this fabulous curve hugging gown!! Sofia was killing them in this amazing Robert Cavalli gown, I love when she brings Cavalli to life with her curves and the way that a real lady looks in a gown on any given night.

Now this particular Actress I personally was upset over how she looked for this evenings event. I mean there are so few real elegant plus size women in this business that have made it and have been recognized in such a way like the Oscars.  Its so important that you really get it right first time around because there are no do over’s once you hit the Red Carpet and everyone is Tweeting, Reporting or Blogging your look it must be correct!! For me as a Stylist I wished I could have gotten the opportunity to Meet and Dress Melissa McCarthy who wore this particular gown:

MELISSAThis gown is beautiful in color only, its just the wrong cut for her particular body-type which is oval and she has such great assets that could have been brought out and instead they decided to go with a well crafted beautiful bathrobe for our gorgeous Melissa to wear. This is such a miss and if you know how we can get in touch with this Fabulous Actress please let us know. 

Now we want to give you our best Dressed, the look that we loved for the WHOLE night and guess what? It is going to blow your mind and shock you all because this particular person those that are in the industry (Fashion Critics) via Television stated this would be great for the Grammy’s or some other award show but, we TOTALLY DISAGREE!!

JENNJennifer killed it in this amazing Zuhair Murad Gown that gave this beautiful Actress the wow factor.  This is what Oscar Awards are all about bringing you the different the awe inspiring and the amazing things in beauty and this is exactly what Jennifer Lopes gave everyone on the Red Carpet and if you could have seen her on at the Vanity Fair party you would have just thought now this is what a Super Star looks like!!

This seasons Oscars was okay and Billy Crystal was back and  hosted but, its time to get that fresh blood in and move things forward just like we all expect when we see the celebrities walking the Red Carpet!!

We cannot wait to hear your picks misses and much more! This has been a very busy season but we’re happy to bring you all the coverage at the Hottest Spot on the internet!!
