The biggest Red-Carpet event of the year, The Oscars, aired last night, and this girl was giddy. I love, love, love seeing the stars bring their best to the red carpet during this event, and I can't say that I was dissapointed. Here are my top 5 picks for best dressed. On the red carpet we saw a lot of color, and a lot of glitz, but these ladies made those trends their own, and dominated.
Leave it to last year's best actress winner to be a winner on the red-carpet last night. Natalie Portman wore a gorgeous polka dot Christian Dior Haute Couture gown from 1954, and I thought it was perfect for her. The classic silhouette is occasion appropriate, but the bright color, and pattern play up the fun and youthfulness of the gown. The gorgeous diamond necklace, and drop earring were the perfect touch, and frame her face wonderfully.
Emma Stone looked lovely in this crimson gown. The neck-tie has the daring effect that she seems to gravitate towards, and pulls off so well. Her simple hair and make-up allow the gown to really make the statement, and the earrings, bracelet, and clutch add the perfect amount of glitz to her glam.
I haven't been a fan of Rooney Mara's past red-carpet looks, but I am so glad she knocked this one out of the park in a custom Givenchy Haute Couture Gown (you may have seen it on the Spring 2009 runway). The construction of the gown is exquisite, and has amazing details, especially at the bust, and fits her absolutely perfectly. The stark white color compliments her beautiful skin tone, hair, and make-up, and the lack of accessories is just perfect. This gown is something a girl can only dream of wearing on her wedding day- absolute ethereal perfection.
Usually, if you wear a glitzy dress, I say leave out the accessories, but Rose Byrne has proven me wrong. The black sequined gown is Hollywood glam at it's finest, and fits her perfectly. The Chanel drop earrings are amazing, her bracelet and cocktail ring are so fun, and her clutch is the perfect addition. Her make-up and hair compliment the look nicely and round out the edginess of it all, but my favorite detail is the ballerina pink nails; they soften the overall look just enough. Plus, she was hilarious on stage... "Scorsese!"
This may have to be my favorite look of the night. Best Actress nominee, Michelle Williams, wasn't afraid to standout in this coral layered confection. The construction of the gown is phenomenal, and makes petite Michelle look statuesque. The diamond necklace, and brooch at the peplum are lovely glam accents, and I love that she added more color with the pink clutch, and matching pink lips. Her dewy skin just glows in this get-up, and although she didn't win best actress, she won best dressed in my book!
