8th Governors Awards Wrap-up

On Saturday(November 12th) the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' 8th Annual Governors Awards took place at The Ray Dolby Ballroom in LA. To see all of the red carpet looks, click HERE and continue below for the wrap-up. 

Aja Naomi King wore a MARC JACOBS long sleeve black see-through beaded & lace floor length dress with a black bra & briefs underneath for coverage. Aja is beautiful but this look is giving me deja vue. LOUBOUTIN heels, red lips and a complimentary up-do finished up her look. 

Amy Adams wore a custom CAROLINA HERRERA one-shoulder white & gold dotted chiffon evening dress with a gold beaded strap & waist. I like this dress but I wish the gold beaded straps was removed. A sleek, center part ponytail, minimal make-up and gold jewelry finished up her look. 

Greta Gerwig served up some side boob action wearing a EMILIA WICKSTEAD textured gown accessorized with NEIL LANE jewelry and BRIAN ATWOOD heels. Love the color of this dress and she looks nice. 

Heather Headley with her beautiful voice performed at the event wearing a custom BADGLEY MISCHKA white all over sequin gown and jewelry. 

Felicity Jones wore a custom MIU MIU sleeveless black floor sweeping gown with a sheer floral embroidered bodice. Thankfully this is not another beaded chiffon dress from the brand and even though she looks pretty, her look doesn't excite. RUPERT SANDERSON pumps, an up-do with bangs and a colored lip finished up her look. 

Lily Collins wore a AMANDA WAKELEY 'Oleta' chartreuse silk draped floor length dress. Lily's retro inspired hairstyle definitely channels her 'Rules Don't Apply' hairstyle. A colored lip finished up her beautiful look. 

Marion Cotillard wore a custom CHRISTIAN DIOR COUTURE long sleeve black layered lace dress. This would have been a great look but I can't get pass the shiny knee high boots. I really hope she discontinues this boots affair with her dresses on the red carpet. 

Octavia Spencer wore a TADASHI SHOJI soft pink chiffon draped lace embroidered evening dress. If you know Octavia's style, she always wears Tadashi's dress on the carpet. However I have seen here in a very similar dress like this before. It's time to switch it up but she does look pretty. 

Rebecca Hall wore a custom PRADA SPRING 2017 sleeveless black floor length dress which featured contrasting white side panels and a pink & black bow detail bodice. While this is not a wow moment, I like this dress on Rebecca and the minimal beauty look worked.

  1. Amy Adams, very well done - lovely, a bit more interesting gown and top-notch styling - one of the top best dressed of the event, w/o a doubt.
    Heather looks gorgeous, Lily and Octavia are lovely...quite a few people did very well at this event.

  2. Heather, Otavia and Lily. Flawless, all of them. I can't decide who looks better.
    Marion may be suffering a temporal lack of fashion common sense.

  3. Heather and Greta are my favs from this wrap up. Been loving Lily's beauty look on the red carpet. So on point
