What a red carpet! The ladies (and gents – hello, George Clooney!) brought their best for last night’s Academy Awards. Can we just talk about how insanely gorgeous Michelle Williams looked? I don’t think she could have picked a more perfect dress for last night. The red-orange Louis Vuitton gown was the epitome of feminine chic. I loved everything about this look – the pink clutch, the bow-shaped brooch, and, of course, the peplum detail! Best Dressed for sure! Another bright red favorite was Emma Stone’s Giambattista Valli gown. How about that bow? White emerged as a key color for the evening with several stars donning the hue. I adored Gwyneth’s minimalistic Tom Ford gown. She looked so elegant – doesn’t she always? Any favorites? I would love to hear!

  1. I was overall not thrilled with the fashions. My sister in law who works for Vogue said the overall impression from the fashion world unofficially is that they were unimpressed. A few stood out, and I liked 3 of your 4 faves, the first dress I do not at all like but the other 3 are quite pretty.
    Its fun to see what everyones choices are.

  2. I loved Michelle Williams dress as well as several others of these. People were giving Emma Stone a hard time for looking too close to another Oscar dress from a few years ago (the actress is evading me right now). But I really couldn't stand Angelina and that leg. I mean, arrogance exuded from her and it kind of irked me.

  3. my favorites were Gwyneth Paltrow, Michelle Williams, Rooney Mara, & Jessica Chastain. but i think Gwyneth looked soooooo fab and chic.. just beauitufl

  4. Meghan – I totally agree with you regarding Angelina's “pose.” The dress itself really was beautiful, but I just wish she hadn't continued to pose like that with her leg out.

  5. Overall, I thought everyone looked nice (obviously), but a little bland. There were some exceptions, of course, like Jessica Chastain in McQueen, but there are so many beautiful and interesting gowns out there, I wish we'd seen some more of them on the red carpet.

  6. I loved gwyneth the most! I really liked Emma but it looked so much like that red dress that Nicole Kidman wore one year?! She did look great though!

  7. jessica chastain was definitely a favorite and michelle williams as well as gwyneth. However, did not love tina or emma … which is unfortunate cause I ALWAYS love emma!!!! But no one could've rocked that Tadashi Shoji like Octavia Spencer … wow! another of my faves you didn't mention was rose byrne … not for everyone, but certainly lovely!
