Oscar Fashion 2011

Overall, I was impressed with the fashion at this year’s Academy Awards. I also loved the opening and think that Anne Hathaway and James Franco did an excellent job as hosts. Natalie Portman taking home the Oscar for Best Actress was a great moment and I’ve now realized that I need to see The King’s Speech.

Onto the fashion:

Best Dressed

Reese Witherspoon in Giorgio Armani Privé

Sleek and chic in black and white. She also gets my vote for best hair.

Jennifer Lawrence in Calvin Klein Collection

This dress fit her like a glove and I loved that she didn’t wear any jewelry. The gown spoke for itself.

Gwyneth Paltrow in Calvin Klein Collection
Glowing in gold. I don’t think anyone else could pull this gown off as well as she did. Gorgeous.

Mila Kunis in Elie Saab

Lavender and lace elegance. I think she is beautiful.

Anne Hathaway in Valentino

Red seemed to rule the red carpet and this was the first of many gowns (and even a tux). She looked beautiful all night long.

Worst Dressed

Melissa Leo in Marc Bouwer

This looked like a bad doily (and her speech was huge turnoff).

Nicole Kidman in Dior

I love her, but not this dress

Helena Bonham Carter in Colleen Atwood

She was celebrating film over fashion. Fine, but I don’t like it.

Cate Blanchett in Givenchy Couture

Beautiful color, I just wasn’t a fan of the structure.

Scarlett Johansson in Dolce & Gabbana

The wine color and lace was very pretty. The sheerness I didn’t like.

I was hoping to see a King's Speech before the awards but I didn't get to. I love Reese's dress! And I agree about her hair!

Virginia said...

the only one I disagree on is Cate Blanchett's dress, I can't explain why I just loved it! Otherwise, great list ;) Reese is gorgeous. Hope you had a good weekend! Virginia www.sweetcarolinagirlvm.blogspot.com

I agree with your opinions on the fashion.

The King's Speech was a very good movie! It held my attention even though there was no action or anything crazy. Definitely see it when you get the chance.

Reese was my all time fave. LOVED the hair!

i hated reese's outfit! i thought the dress was played out and her hair looked too fake. I also loved scarjo's dress, but I think I'm the only one. LOL.

I loved Jennifer and Gwyneth. I thought Reese looked a little too much like a Barbie!

Alyson said...

Glad you agree about Cate; I did not love that random big circular design in the middle. However, while I thought Reese looked gorgeous, that dress was so blah to me; like I could find in Macy's. :( She's too gorgeous for it in my opinion. Love your taste overall!

I agree with most of those!! I think Melissa Leo, Cate Blanchett, and Nicole Kidman looks washed out and boxy! I looove Natalie Portman and Reese... almost no matter what they are wearing!

Rachel said...

Mila Kunis was my favorite, her dress was gorgeous!! I saw a lot of celebs the night before the Oscars, including Colin Firth, so that was really cool!

I loved Mila Kunis and surprisingly, I really liked Cate Blanchett's. At first I thought it looked like a tablecloth, but she really pulled it off. Oh, and I also liked Jennifer Lawrence's red dress.

For some reason I had no problem with any of the dresses this time around. The whole show I was thinking, wow they all did a pretty great hob picking their dresses. BUT now that I see a better pic of Nicole Kidman, eh, not a fan so much.
