We all know what I am going to blog about the day after The Academy Awards. So let's just jump right on in. Prepare yourselves for an unnecessarily long and hopefully, fairly entertaining post.
In the name of all things holy and beautiful this is IT. No one did it better than Michelle Williams, who wore Louis Vuitton...perfection.
My next round of favorites. Gwyneth Paltrow looking insane in Tom Ford..insane. The cape was an incredible touch and she looked simple and chic. Rooney Mara in Givenchy Couture...good hell she is pure magic. I'm undoubtably obsessed with this creature. She hates people almost as much as I do, it's easy to tell. Milla Jovovich in Elie Saab, what a dream. She looked like heaven.
Alright..let's all get over the fact that Angelina Jolie was quite intent showing off her leg as much as possible, and focus on the fact that she looked like a major siren in her black velvet Atelier Versace gown. First of all it was VELVET second of all it was VELVET. She pulled it off and I thought she looked incredible despite the awkward leg overexposure.
I just might be in love with Rose Byrne, no let's be real..I am in love with her. Her in this Vivienne Westwood beauty makes me fall even more in love. I can't even contain myself, she is such a babe. I'm so giddy.
Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli. This one took me a minute..possibly because it's just about the exact dress Nicole Kidman wore in 2007 to the Oscars, aside from the slight color difference. Or because I'm not a fan of big accent bows near your face. Regardless, this is a winner.
Judy Greer was someone I never expected to put on a best dressed list. But here she is, looking radiant as ever in Monique Lhuillier.
This was a trendy color, obviously. Kate Hudson in Versace, Claire Danes in Valentino, and Diane Kruger in Calvin Klein all look majestic at the Vanity Fair after party. I especially love the tiny amount of lace detail on Diane's dress and the fringe at the bottom of Kate's.
I preferred Cameron Diaz's second dress of the night, by Victoria Beckham, to her first. Such a fun shade and classic silhouette. The straps are a unique touch that complete the dress perfectly.
Kate Bosworth in Prabal Gurung. OH MY. She is a fashion goddess and no one better ever say any different. She looks amazing in anything and everything, obviously because she has fantastic taste. THE END.
This one was somewhat interesting for me. I picked this dress right off the runway and thought it would be perfect for any red carpet..but I never pictured it on Elizabeth Banks. I have to say despite my being torn, I admire her for making such a unique choice and I think she really did it as best as anyone could have. This dress is by Chadwick Bell.
IFFY SPIFFY'S AND BIG FAT NO'S
This saddens me deeply. I never wanted to have to put Natalie Portman on the bad list. I just could not decide if I liked this or not. At first I thought it was the polka dots, but Elizabeth Banks had polka dots and it was bearable..therefore this Vintage Dior has me quite undecided.
Tina Fey in Carolina Herrera was tough for me. Mainly because I find these kind of dresses to be so safe and boring. Sandra Bullock in Marchesa...nothing special to me. I just couldn't get into it. Stacy Keibler in Marchesa felt very Miss Hawaiian Tropics pageant..was not a fan. Oh noooo Kate Beckinsale whyyyyy! Atelier Versace did not do her well, and they know it. Next, the only thing I have to say about January Jones in Wes Gordon is HORRID. Absolutely horrid! Last..Berenice Bejo, I never imagined Elie Saab could look so cheap. I think it might be her hair color that ruined this gem, she would be better with darker hair, like in The Artist. Such a bummer.
LASTLY, Tom Ford in his blue velvet blazer looking handsome as ever. What a man.
