Valentino Spring 2013 Couture Show
10 Oscar-worthy gowns.
by Amy Wicks
We have seen some gorgeous gowns hit the runway at the spring couture shows in Paris this week but Valentino's collection is on another level. Since these breathtaking gowns were made for the red carpet, I have decided to match each look with the actress who should wear it to the Academy Awards. Let's get started!
Naomi Watts: Please consider this gown!
Gwyneth Paltrow isn't nominated but if she's presenting an award, she would look gorgeous in this dress.
I think this gown is very sweet and Elle Fanning would look adorable in this Valentino look.
According to WWD, when this model hit the runway in this "black, birdcagelike cape," the audience started clapping. Did you catch my cape story yesterday? Capes are here to stay!

Rooney Mara should rock this dress when she heads to the Academy Awards. I hear she will be a presenter and her pale skin will look beautiful against this gown.
Naomi Watts likes to mix it up and I could see her trying this shorter gown at the Oscars.
Amy Adams: please stop what you're doing and contact Valentino. You were born to wear this red dress!
Sienna Miller, this is the fun, colorful gown for you. Now, how will you wear your hair?
Jessica Chastain: When you're considering Oscar looks, how about this one?
WWD said that at the end of the show, Valentino Garavani rose to his feet and was visibly emotional as he embraced the designers who succeeded him at Valentino. Who could blame him: it was a ravishing collection.
What do you think Valentino's runway show? Do you agree with my dress/actress picks? Or, do you have a better idea? Discuss!

You can rent a couture dress or a designer bag, but would you rent hair extensions?
To get the scoop on quick office party beauty tricks, we turned to Landy Dean, celebrity makeup artist at Marie Robinson salon. His simple tutorial requires only a handful of products, starting with the darkest, inkiest eyeliner you can find. Dean swears by the Nars Larger Than Life liners smudged over the waterline and lashline, topped off with a few coats of Maybelline The Falsies mascara. Before you dash off to apply product, there’s one small step that involves removing makeup. “If your foundation and concealer have caked or creased, I recommend a quick removal with a cleansing towelette and a redo to avoid heavy looking skin,” he cautions. For those who would prefer to go the easy route, apply a hydrating moisturizer using a stippling motion and a sponge. Finish the look with a dusting of BareMinerals Mineral Veil—“this will even out discolorations and give a reflective finish that still looks natural”—swap your work bag for a chic clutch, and get ready to ring in the season.
