We’ve been all over the red carpets this year and really enjoying the fashions, but there is one show we were waiting for : The Oscars. Last night’s 82nd annual Academy Awards did not disappoint, bringing many gorgeous looks. Here are our favorites of the night:
Ruffled and Tiered Dresses
Demi Moore in Atelier Versace, Diane Kruger in Chanel, and Elizabeth Banks in Versace all worked the ruffled dress trend. Given the possibility of overdoing ruffles we think the ladies all did a great job of choosing dresses that didn’t overpower them.
Queen Latifah in Badgley Mischka Couture, Tina Fey in Michael Kors, and Sigourney Weaver in Lanvin all looked radiant in one-shoulder dresses. All the dresses were very sleek and visually interesting.
Kristen Stewart in Monique Lhuillier, Miley Cyrus in Jenny Packham (above top photos),Mariska Hartigay in Vera Wang, and Charlize Theron in Christian Dior (above bottom photos) all went for traditional strapless gowns. We love the sweetheart necklines and fit of Kristen and Miley’s dresses, and the volume and flair of Mariska and Charlize’s dresses.
Jennifer Lopez in Armani Prive, Penelope Cruz in Donna Karan (above top photos), Amanda Seyfried in Giorgio Armani Prive, and Cameron Diaz in Oscar de la Renta (above bottom photos), all graced the red carpet in rich full gowns. While Jennifer, Amanda, and Cameron chose ethereal white gowns with texture and beading detail, Penelope chose a rich wine color with a pretty sheen.
While we’d love to tell you our best dressed, we must admit we are deadlocked between Cameron Diaz, who stunned us with her glamour, and Penelope Cruz, who wowed us in her elegant Donna Karan gown. Who do you think was best dressed?
