Nina Dobrev – 20th Annual Elton John Academy Awards Viewing Party

If the other week, I got the chance to see a first look from the recently presented J.Mendel Fall 2012 collection, courtesy of Rooney Mara, this week, Nina Dobrev rocked a second look from the collection, for the 20th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

She looked delightful, as she attended the party alongside co-star and boyfriend, Ian Somerhalder. They make for a … hot couple.

Her black cut out gown, featuring a V-neck, geometrically structured bodice and a full length pleated skirt, looked darling and romantic on the young actress, despite the dark color.

A silver sparkly Jimmy Choo clutch, Brian Atwood heels and Chopard White Gold Diamond Flower earrings, complemented the flawless look.

A single textured fishtail braid and smokey eyes, seemed like the perfect fit for the flowy dress.

Olivia Wilde – 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Olivia Wilde was one of the many celebs to attend the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, held on February 26, at the Sunset Tower hotel in Hollywood, California. The actress dressed to impress that night, and she did amaze everyone with her demure Gucci gown.

The strapless black silk gown, with a classic sillouethe, had a beautiful black crystal and sequin-encrusted dragonfly motif belt and was paired with the Jimmy Choo Katima sandals.

The elegant look was accessorized with a Salvatore Ferragamo Evy Chain clutch, diamond studs and gold jewelry, featuring a double gold choker necklace.

A slick high bun, bronze eyeshadow and glossy lips, add to the classy look.

Katy Perry – 20th Annual Elton John Academy Awards Viewing Party

Blue hair, still there. What changed ? Katy Perry‘s perspective on fashion, or at least, so it seems. Ditching her usual fun, crazy and colorful outfits, Katy looked polished and beautiful, again, as she joined the other celebrities for the 20th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party, sparkling in Blumarine.

The sumptuous floor length short sleeved silk tulle gown, with silver and black sequins adornments and a sheer neckline, was paired with Miu Miu shoes and a petite box clutch.

To accessorize the dress, Katy chose Diamond in the Rough iceberg jewelry.

Her signature blue bob was styled super smooth, with the hair ends curled upward. Katy finished the look with soft minty green and aqua eyeshadow, and glossy lips.

Kate Hudson – 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Whoever missed the adorable Kate Hudson lately, myself included of course, must have really been excited as she arrived at the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. And she came back in style, wearing a red Vintage Versace gown, that only accentuated her glowing.

The bright red tasseled gown, with a beaded bodice, a low cut back and an illusion neckline, was teamed with the Christian Louboutin Lady Peep pumps and styled with Tiffany and Co. diamond jewelry.

Natural wavy hair and a natural toned make-up completed the ravishing look. I only hope that now, when she signed to release a new movie, we’ll get to see her more often.

Kate Beckinsale – 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Even if I missed seeing Kate Beckinsale take on this year’s Red Carpet for the Academy Awards, I was enthusiastic and happy to see her look gorgeous at the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. The British actress, who seems to be on a streak of impeccable looks lately, caught all eyes in a smouldering Atelier Versace Fall 2011 Couture gown.

Paz Vega – 20th Annual Elton John Academy Awards Viewing Party

I’m not sure I am done with the 2012 Academy Awards’s Favorite Looks round up, so I may be getting back to it at a certain point, but if I said I loved the Red Carpet for the big award ceremony, let me just tell you that I absolutely adored some of the gowns showcased at the parties surrounding the event. Dreamy.

Yes, I was as anxious to review them and yes, I wanted to let the world know about my favorites as soon as possible. They have to be remembered and noted somewhere, luckily this blog serves as my fashion journal.

How could I not start with Paz Vega, who attended the 20th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party, looking DIVINE as she was wearing one of my favorite looks, from one of my favorite collections this year, the Stephane Rolland Spring 2012 Couture.

The Spanish actress sweep me off my feet, by totally owning this Haute Couture ivory silk jersey and gazar Kinetic gown, with a thin gold belt accentuating the waist line.

Luxurious Bulgari jewelry, styled the Oscar worthy gown.

A sleek center part with soft layered curls, smokey eyes and a glossy pink lipstick , perfected the alluring look. If people say she resembles Penelope Cruz, I dare say she looks ten times more beautiful.

I’ll be sure to keep my eyes wide opened for this lovely lady. New girl crush.

Angelina Jolie – 2012 Academy Awards

Letting aside the weird leg showing and awkward posing that’s she’s been sporting on the Red Carpet, at the 2012 Academy Awards, Angelina Jolie created drama with her appearance. Even if she stuck to her favorite neutral shade of black in the Atelier Versace gown, the beautiful actress didn’t fail to deliver a slightly darker but showstopping moment.

The custom made, black velvet strapless gown, with a sexy high slit, was paired with a classic pair of black Salvatore Ferragamo satin peep-toe platform pumps.

Neil Lane jewelry, soft wind-blown curls and a hot red lipstick, as Angie looks best wearing it, made for a highly seductive appearance.
