The 84th Annual Academy Awards red carpet fashion, paled in comparison to previous years. Thankfully a few ladies got it right. Here’s a look at my top ten Oscar best dressed looks.
Michelle Williams, Best Actress nominee for “My Week with Marilyn,” was stunning in a coral Louis Vuitton tiered strapless gown paired with a beautiful Forevermark Fred Leighton diamond necklace.
Rooney Mara, Best Actress nominee for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” took a risk with her white Givenchy Couture gown that few could have pulled off as brilliantly. Her upswept hair, red lips, and decision to go without the traditional Oscar jewels truly made her the star.
Viola Davis, Best Actress nominee for “The Help,” as she had done all week at previous events arrived sans wig and looked beautiful with her cropped red do. Her green Vera Wang jewel encrusted strapless taffeta gown was the perfect finish to her award season’s red carpet style.
Emma Stone’s red Giambattista Valli Couture gown with its oversized shoulder bow was sheer perfection and the perfect compliment to her beautiful red hair.
It was all about Angelina Jolie’s side slit in her black strapless Atelier Versace gown. The actress who’s known for her red carpet elegance was clearly having fun flirting showing a little leg.
Gwyneth Paltrow was divine, simply divine in a white Tom Ford gown and matching duster. It was reminiscent of old Hollywood chic.
Model turned actor Milla Jovovich was stunning in a white sequined draped Elie Saab Couture gown.
Rose Byrne looked modern and chic in a black sequined one shouldered Vivienne Westwood gown.
Stacy Keibler was an Oscar goddess draped in gold lamé wearing a strapless Marchesa gown. She finished her look with gold accessories and side swept hair.
But, the night truly belonged to Octavia Spencer winning her first Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, in “The Help.” Octavia being loyal to those who had first offered to dress her again selected a beautiful Tadashi Shoji capped sleeved white gown with crystal beading that was simply beautiful. Congratulation.
