Every couple knows that the power of two can withstand the most terrifying of social situations. And so it was at the Oscars this past Sunday when the following couples, through the power of two, presented as perfect a picture of class and elegance as could be expected. I dinged Will Smith earlier, but let’s face it, Jada Pinkett Smith’s Grecian gown elevates them both to new heights. here now are the Best Dressed Couples on at the 86th Annual Academy Awards.

Best Dressed Men At the 86th Annual Oscars: Young Stars Reigns Supreme

Youth lead the way among the men at the just -concluded 86th Annual Oscars in Hollywood. The problem, for the past several years among men in Hollywood, has been that they can get too creative in interpreting the meaning of “Black Tie”. We have all seen disastrous attempts that has sank more than a few male stars–and still they try. For men, black tie at an event such as the Oscars means that you pull out all the stops to best represent your self and your brand, which nowadays can be one and the same for everyone. As such, Joseph Gordon Levitt, John Legend and Leonardo DiCaprio all stood out from all the others. Best Supporting Actor winner Jared Leto pushed the envelope with a white tuxedo jacket paired with red bowtie yet still managed to stay within the confines of looking elegant and confident. The same goes for best Actor winner Matthew M. Blue tuxedos also ruled the night, with Kevin Spacey leading the charge on that front. Others–John Stamos, for example, went for that black-on-black-on-black look to great effect. Stamos always looks dashingly handsome on the red carpet, so yeah, he drew outside the lines but still  have my vote for being one of the best-looking men who walks the face of the earth. Finally, some people can’t help themselves. Will Smith, who came with the gorgeously turned out Jada Pinkett Smith, looked like he was auditioning for the Sammy Davis Jr role in a remake of the Rat Pack movies.

Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall, Who was the Fairest of Them All?

RECAPING THE BEST DRESSED PARADE ON THE 2013 ACADEMY AWARDS RED CARPET

All Images photographed by Michael Yada, Greg Harbaugh, Tom Lew, Matt Petit, Aaron Poole, and Bryan Crowe, courtesy of the A.M.P.A.S.

The red carpet action at the just-concluded 2013 Oscar Awards ceremony (the 86th Annual Academy Awards) was not especially exciting, but that was to be expected. After all, no one wants to be taunted and mocked like Kim Basinger (who designed and sewed her own dress for the year she won her Oscar), Bjork (with the dead swan hanging from her neck) or Cher (looking like a Native American Princess when she won for Moonstruck). It was a parade of pretty safe colors, Veronica Lake hair, minimal jewelry (most discreet gold and platinum) and red lips all around. All in all, not a bad showing, but still.

But having said all that, there are always winners and losers in the race and the absolute, number one with a bullet winner was Lupita Nyong’o (Patsey in Best Picture Winner 12 Years a Slave) who won the Best Supporting Actress Award Sunday night. From her very first appearance on the red carpet wearing red Ralph Lauren Collection at the beginning of the awards season to her being a stunning reflection of international beauty in a blue pleated Prada dress on Sunday, she has been the very essence of graceful elegant. No one else outshone her at the ceremony and her youthful humility and natural ease puts her heads above all others.

Because no really crossed the line into abject failure, the rest of the women also proved to just as bewitching, although there was some successful failures. Among my favorites were Bette Midler, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Garner, Penelope Cruz, Emma Watson and Jennifer Lawrence.

Swarovski Celebrates Seven Years Of Lighting Up The Oscars®

Swarovski is honored to be the key creative ingredient on the world’s most revered stage for the seventh year at the Oscars. Tony Award-winning production designer, Derek McLane, has partnered with Swarovski for a second year to crystallize the Dolby Digital Theater. The full design concept and visuals of the set will remain a closely guarded secret until the live telecast on tonight, when the Oscars will be broadcast across the globe on ABC at 7 PM EST.

Due to Swarovski’s long-standing history in film, it felt natural to bring crystal to the Oscar’s stage. 2007 marked the first year Swarovski sponsored the set design with a 34 foot, one-ton custom crystal curtain for the Dream Girls performance. This year, Derek McLane will incorporate about 165,000 crystals into a design that will leave Hollywood’s brightest stars and viewers at home with a brilliant impression.

Swarovski has been dazzling movie-goers with enchanting crystallized costume and set designs since the 1930s. Swarovski made its Hollywood debut in the 1932 film Blonde Venus, starring Marlene Dietrich who shimmered in statement jewelry pieces and embellished dresses. Since then, Swarovski sparkled in costumes worn by award winning actresses such as Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz, Marilyn Monroe in Gentleman Prefer Blondes,Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and more recently, Jennifer Hudson in Dream Girls and Nicole Kidmanin Moulin Rouge. Custom shimmering costumes, decor and chandeliers have also made appearances in Black SwanSkyfall and The Great Gatsby.

They allow me to create unique designs that bring extra magic to the Oscars stage and this year we will have exciting elements within the decor.”

Nadja Swarovski, Member of the Executive Board, Swarovski Crystal Business commented:“Swarovski’s history on the silver screen goes back to the early years of Hollywood and has sparkled with unforgettable moments ever since Dorothy tapped her crystal-encrusted ruby slippers, so we are delighted once again to play a supporting role at the Oscars. The Oscars represent talent, creativity, glamour and excitement – values that glow at the heart of Swarovski. Derek McLane’s stage design is captivating and Swarovski is thrilled to partner with him for a second year running.”

Two-Time Academy Award Winner Audrey Hepburn Returns To The Red Carpet

DOVE® Chocolate Features Hepburn in Cinematic TV Ad to Air during 2014 OSCARS® ‘Red Carpet Live’

DOVE® Chocolate is rolling out the red carpet this Sunday, Mar. 2, for its newest TV ad, which features Audrey Hepburn and is airing during the OSCARS® “Red Carpet Live” on ABC. The cinematic ad for DOVE® Dark Chocolate uses 3D computer-generated technology to capture Hepburn’s classic style and infectious smile.

1779044_10152236237649561_1310467531_n

The ad shows a stylish Hepburn taking a tour of an Italian town by bus, which gets stuck in a traffic jam. Out her window, a handsome stranger in a convertible tempts her to leave the bus and ride with him. She accepts the offer and playfully hops into the backseat. As they drive away, she rewards herself with a bite of a DOVE® Dark Chocolate bar and leans back with a pleased expression.

We cast Audrey Hepburn for this new ad because she’s timeless and truly embodies the DOVE® Chocolate consumer,” said Roy Benin, Chief Consumer Officer, Mars Chocolate North America. “Hepburn possesses a spark in her eye and radiates the confidence to make choices that are more enjoyable to her.

To recreate Hepburn’s appearance and gestures, the visual effects (VFX) team at Framestore, in partnership with the BBDO network, used the star’s entire feature film catalog and all available photographs as reference. Many scenes required frame-by-frame hand animation techniques to ensure the model was authentic from every possible angle.

Hepburn’s children, Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti, encouraged the use of their mother’s image and likeness in the ad, which originally launched last year in the UK to promote Galaxy chocolate bar.  Ferrer said, “Our mother loved rewarding herself with a piece of chocolate, but it always had to be dark chocolate.”

The tagline – “It’s not just dark. It’s DOVE®.” – reinforces that DOVE® Dark Chocolate is unlike any other dark chocolate experience. As the #1 solid dark chocolate brand1, the never-bitter, silky-smooth taste of DOVE® Dark Chocolate is guaranteed to make people reconsider dark chocolate altogether.

The new TV spot will air on Networks such as MTV, Adult Swim, A&E, Bravo and Lifetime reaching Adults, ages 18 to 49, throughout 2014. For more information about DOVE® Chocolate and to view the new TV ad, please visit www.Facebook.com/DoveChocolate.
