Oscar Night--Best Dressed and Not-So Well Dressed

I'll start off with my favorite dress of the night. Who know I'd pick Angelina Jolie? I love that the focus is on Angelina, not her beautiful black dress by Atelier Versace.
Best dress of the night!!!
I absolutely loved Guiliana Rancic in this gorgeous gown byTony Ward.
Okay, when I first saw her on the red carpet, I did NOT like this gold Marchesa gown Stacey Keibler was wearing. As the night went on, it grew on me...not my style, but she rocked it!
LOVED Tina Fey's look! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! The classic gown by Carolina Herrera is perfect for her and I adored her hair bun. One of my favorites of the night!
Love me some Minny and loved this gown Octavia Spencer wore, designed by Tadashi Shoji. Very elegant.
Jessica Chastain looked absolutely stunning in this gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Perfect for the Oscars!
She's a Glamorous movie Star to the T. Penelope Cruz was radiant in the beautiful gown by Armani.
LOVED this dress worn by Rose Byrne, designed by Vivienne Westwood. I especially loved her hairstyle and "Fine Chanel jewels." Perfection!
Natalie Portman looked absolutely beautiful wearing this Dior gown. So cute!!!!!

Rooney Mara, wearing Givenchy Couture. Did. Not. Like. this dress at all. Sorry.

J Lo, wearing Zuhair Murad. Jennifer always looks stunning; unfortunately, I will remember the "wardrobe malfunction" and not the dress.

Bernice Bejo wearing
Elie Saab. This dress is too old for her.
LOVE Meryl Streep, but this gold
Lanvin gown is wrong on so many levels.
Who is this lady? Bless her heart, I just don't like the dress.
Gwyneth Paltrow, wearing
Tom Ford Couture. Y'all will disagree, but I do not like this dress on her. Hated the cape and her hairstyle should have been more of an elegant look.

I love Gwyn's dress too! I loved Angelina's dress I just didn't understand why she had to stand with her leg out.

I worship at the Gwynnie alter, but other than that we totally agree. What did you think of Michelle Williams?

PoshMomma...wasn't a fan of the cape. I liked Michelle Williams' just wasn't one of my faves. It does have me lusting for mine own Louis Vuitton gown though!

I always do a big fashion wrap up on my blog. It's what I'm known for. And it's hilarious that you and I thought just about the same on everything. Love it!!!!

I'm a Gwinnie fan, too, and adored her gown. I agree with most of your other comments, tho, save I'd be a bit stronger on JLo. She looked cheap.

Teresa Jane said...

That's one of the lady's from the view. Can't remember her name.

Kate said...

I didn't like Gwyneth's cape thing and hair. Dress was gorgeous though!

Angelina's leg thing distracted me (I liked the dress though)

Penelope Cruz was DEFINITELY my favorite!!! And so glad to see you didn't like Rooney Mara's dress! I thought it was just looks like a bunch of 2x2 gauze all sewn together, and not in a good way.

Bless your heart, you are so much nicer than I am. I just do not care for Angelina and as a result just did not like her dress at all. Flashing her leg up to you know where, for God and everyone to see...please! But I agree with your other choices! :)

The lady in the blue dress you and I!!!) disliked is named Sherri Shepherd. She's on "The View", I think. Her gown was atrocious! I loved Penelope Cruz's ensemble!!! I thought Octavia Spencer who played Minny in "The Help" looked smashing. Her body type represents the majority of American women, and the styling of that gown made her look absolutely wonderful. She wore it with grace and aplomb. Andelina Jolie's gown...stunning. Her body does look devoid of any fat cells whatsoever, but I just try to overlook that. Loved Michelle Williams in that coral!!!
