Oscars Best & Worst Dressed!

February 28, 2012

Hello lovely readers!

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend & is having a good start to your week. As you saw in my last post, this weekend I was SO excited to be invited by a lovely fashion blogger (Jessica from First Came Fashion)  to join a live, online interactive chat on Spreecast to discuss Red Carpet fashion. If you missed it and would like to watch click HERE! I had an absolute blast...I love talking fashion & I love connecting with other bloggers! I also participated in a Red Carpet fashion re-cap Monday night, so click HERE to check that out as well!

So since Sunday night was one of the biggest nights in fashion, I thought I would do a little recap of who, in my opinion, were the best and worst dressed celebrities at the 84th Annual Academy Awards.

Some trends we saw a lot of on the Red Carpet were whites, red, and gold accents. I’m not gonna lie, I was a little disappointed not to see more color on the Red Carpet this year. But nonetheless here are some of my...

Red Carpet favorites….

Cameron Diaz:

The gorgeous diamonds! The sassy hair! The nude dress! I loved Cameron’s overall look; she was absolutely beautiful in this Gucci number. What makes the dress in my opinion was the bottom…I loved the texturized look and the sparkles.

Emma Stone:

Yes, it has been reported this was a bit TOO similar to Nicole Kidman’s red dress from the 2008 Oscars, but I really loved Emma Stone’s red Giambattista Valli dress. Maybe it’s because I think Emma Stone is too cute anyway, but I thought she looked absolutely gorgeous. Red heads in red is always risky but I thought she pulled it off well. And I really liked the big dramatic bow!

Octavia Spencer:

Octavia Spencer was stunning in this number by Tadashi Shoji. This was the perfect gown for winning an Oscar….it really screamed “Oscars” to me. The beadwork was stunning and the cut of the dress fit her perfectly. She looked amazing.

Angelina Jolie:

If you read my blog, you know that I am slightly obsessed with Angelina Jolie. Things were no different for me at the Oscars. I loved her Atelier Versace gown, her hair, her makeup. What I wasn’t so crazy about….along with the rest of the world….was how she WORE her dress and posed with her right leg protruding from the slit. It was a bit calculated, cheesy, and it took away from her usually EFFORTLESS beauty. To put it simply: she was trying too hard! So did I think she looked beautiful? YES. But I didn’t like the way she WORE her dress. She’s Angelina Jolie…she didn’t need to try so hard!!! 

Milla Jovovich

Of all the white gowns we saw on the Red Carpet, this Ellie Saab gown was my absolute favorite. I LOVE the neckline and the bead-covered look of the gown. Her hair and makeup (with the red lip) complement this dress perfectly. She’s a knockout for sure! 

And now for worst dressed….

Sandra Bullock

I was so disappointed in Sandra’s Marchesa dress. I loved her hair AND her makeup, but I just wasn’t a fan of this dress. She always looks SO gorgeous on the Red Carpet but this was definitely a fashion fail. There’s really not anything I liked about this dress but perhaps the worst thing is that it just didn’t FIT her. It was even more disappointing that it was by Marchesa! Usually Marchesa is one of my fave designers but this didn’t work for me.
