Last night’s Academy Awards capped off the Hollywood award season. It seems everyone saved their best for last. The red carpet was simmering with gorgeous dresses, jewels, and hairstyles. And nowhere was Hollywood glitz and glamour more apparent than among the ladies over 40.
Beautiful in Blue
Nominated for Best Actress for her role in Gravity, 49-year old Sandra Bullock didn’t take home the award, but she’s still a winner in our book. She’s a stunner in an Alexander McQueen midnight blue, strapless dress accented by diamond and platinum cluster earrings. Her smoky eyes add a dramatic flair. After taking a few fashion risks this award season, Sandra nails this look.
Radiant in Red Lace
Bette Midler shows off her sexy curves in a fiery red lace dress from Reem Acra. The delicately embroidered dress hugs Bette’s curves in all the right places and the square neckline flatters her shapely shoulders.
Black is Anything But Drab
The legendary Sally Field never disappoints. Just when you think she couldn’t get any better than last year’s red dress, she tops it with a gorgeous, black sequined dress. The short-sleeved, full-skirted dress is perfection on her. This dark and elegant look doesn’t suit everyone, but Sally wears it beautifully.
All That Glitters is Gold
The Best Actress award went to Cate Blanchett for her role in Blue Jasmine. The 44-year old owned the red carpet last night in an Armani Privé dress that was nothing short of spectacular. Cate’s princess-like dress was adorned with sequins and gold Swarovski crystals. Cate chose to accessorize with Chopard opal drop earrings. Her Oscar made for the perfect accessory as well!
