Fashion Countdown: 84th Annual Oscar Awards

If you guys follow me on Twitter or are friends with me on Facebook, I'm sure you saw some of my live coverage of the Oscars red carpet. We saw greens and golds, natural 'fros and sleek updos, and every silhouette imaginable. What I loved most about this year's Oscars red carpet was the incredible diversity - from color to body type. There were amazing fashion & beauty looks on the carpet for any shape and size. Here were my top 10 favorites:

10. Melissa McCarthy

How amazing is it to see curvy girls represented on the carpet? Though I'm a fan of the silhouette and the detailing on this Marina Rinaldi dress, I'm not the hugest fan of this color. I wish it was richer - like a navy or black. Even a deep fuchsia might have put the oomph into this look. Other than that, it fits her gracefully.

9. Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie was giving legs all day in Atelier Versace at the Oscars! I'm actually more in love with the structure at the top of her dress than I am with the slit. It's a classy look.
8. Emma Stone

Emma Stone wore a deep fuschia/red Giambattista Valli dress on the red carpet and it was absolutely gorgeous. I kinda wish the waist was bejeweled though.

7. Jessica Chastain

At first glance, I wasn't a huge fan of this McQueen dress. But upon closer inspection, I'm actually a fan of its intricacies and detailing. I also liked that she kept the neckwear at bay because of how strong the dress details are. I wish she had accessorized with long dangling chandelier earrings though. And hair up!

6. Stacy Kiebler

George Clooney's date Stacy Kiebler really stole the show on the red carpet in a Marchesa metallic dress. Nobody's dress looked even remotely similar and she really stood out. Also loved how she rocked a slight wave in her hair to accent the dress.

Beauty Bonus: Celebrity stylist Melanie Inglesis used Biore’s new Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser to prep Stacy Keibler’s skin for the big night.

5. Gwyneth Paltrow

I really loved the clean, sleek lines of Gwyneth's Tom Ford gown. And I loved it even more with this amazing floor-length cape. A daring move for the Oscars and she pulled it off flawlessly.

4. Viola Davis

I thought Viola's green Vera Wang gown was an elegant pop of color on the red carpet. And can we talk about her amazing natural hair? I'm beyond elated to see natural 'fros on the red carpet at the Oscars. Amaze!

3. Milla Jovovich

This one shouldered Elie Saab beaded gown is so graceful on Milla. I'm a sucker for asymmetrical looks. And the red lip gives it a pop!

2.  Octavia Spencer

I love how Tadashi Shoji gowns compliment Octavia's figure so well. The design is beautifully cinched in the waist to really play up her curves. And this color and beading combination has just the right amount of detail. Love it! (P.S. I CRIED when Octavia took home the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress - so proud!)

1. Jennifer Lopez

Not only did she dress to absolute perfection, but her body looks amazing! Jennifer Lopez truly killed it in this Zuhair Murad gown. And she kept it classy and elegant with a slick updo.

Do you agree with my list? Who were your faves?

  1. I am in total agreement with your list. I think Viola, Jennifer Lopez and Angelina Jolie look stunning!

  2. Angelina would have looked great in that dress if she didn't keep doing that vulgar thing with her leg. It was like she was airing out her crotch. Love Viola and Gwyneth.

  3. Good website! I really love บาคาร่า how it is easy on my eyes and the data are well written. I’m wondering how I could be notified when a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS which must do the trick! Have a great day!
