Best Dressed at The Oscars!

It was a night of glamour at the 2012 Academy Awards ceremony.  Sartorially inclined stars turned it out and ended the award season on a high note. Here are some that shined a little brighter…

 Angelina Jolie rocked that thigh-high side slit in this sculpted velvet Armani Prive gown.  I like that she left her hair down and messy and that make-up just added to the perfection of it all.  What was so nice was you could tell the normally very serious starlet was having fun with it and was truly comfortable working the look.

 We need to talk about Gwyneth.  She can do no wrong looking the part of Hollywood royalty that she is in this Tom Ford creation.  Paltrow managed to evoke that old hollywood nostalgia but still look modern and above all effortless.  It was a major red carpet moment and a high note that will keep the fashion world buzzing all week.

 There had to be some major sibling rivalry with the chic Mara sisters over who looked the best.  Kate Mara chose a soft, breath-taking Jack Guisso couture number while best actress nominee Rooney wore a lined version from Givenchy’s 2009 couture collection.  Which sister do you think was the best dressed?  Although Kate’s dress is something spectacular I wish they had added the other sleeve.  Rooney, who has gained praise not only for her acting but her red carpet choices, was like a punk Audrey Hepburn, which is so very refreshing.

Although she did not win for her role as Marilyn Monroe, Michelle Williams sparkled on the red carpet in this Louis Vuitton creation.  Her make-up, hair and accessory choices were just perfect.  She may not have won gold but she will surely be topping many best dressed lists this week.
Meryl Streep usually gets panned on the red carpet for her choices but we will give the best actress winner props for this appropriate gold Lanvin look.  The accompanying accessories worked and her grace and elegance took center stage.  Sometimes owning the red carpet is a lot more about attitude than what you are wearing.  Who was your top looks of the night?
