And The Oscar Goes To…

The Oscars were last night and there was a lot of beauty and glamour on the red carpet. I will admit, no one “blew” me away, but still, there were some really amazing gowns. Here’s a look at my choices for “best dressed”.

Anna Faris. I love the dramatic contrast between the color of her hair and the black of the gown. She sparkles!

Rose Byrne in Vivienne Westwood. This dress fits her perfectly and the one shoulder is divine. I love the peep toe shoe-really compliments the dress.

Sandra Bullock in Marchesa. No one does a gown like Marchesa and there is something about this dress that draws me in. She looks beautiful.

Director Li Bingbing in Georges Chakra Couture. I adore the sheer see-through detail on this gown.

Milla Jovovich in Elie Saab. Total Hollywood glamour. Everything about this look is flawless.

Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji. This designer really gets her body and the fit is always amazing. She looks like an oscar winner!

Rooney Mara in Givenchy Haute Couture. It was so nice to see her in something other than black. She still looks edgy, but feminine as well.

Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford. This got a lot of attention and for good reason. The cape was a surprise, but fits her personality. She always gets it right.

Kristen Wiig in J. Mendel. I love seeing her dressed up and she looks beautiful. She does stick to neutral colors, but they work for her.

Kate Mara in Elie Saab. So feminine and ethereal. The detailing is elegant and the hair compliments the softness of the look.

Viola Davis in Vera Wang. This gown emphasizes her amazing body and the color is lovely on her. I also love that she went with her natural hair. She looks like she’s having a great time.

Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton. Orange is not a color you see often, but this is my favorite look of the night. The peplum is a huge trend for fall and the texture is scrumptous.

Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli. She looks so grown up but not in an old way. Classy and elegant. The neckline is so wonderful.

Natalie Portman in vintage Christian Dior circa 1954. I love that she went vintage. This gown flatters her figure and the pattern is very playful.

So, what did you all think about the Oscars? Who were your favorites? Hats off to the stylists! They work so hard to get it right and in my opinion, most of them succeeded.
