Sandra Bullock- Sandra definitely redeemed herself in this stunningly simple Vera Wang gown. I love that she kept her hair pulled back and simple (compared to those horrid bangs from before!). Red was very popular on the carpet tonight, but she looked the best in it. The fit was perfect and the look bold yet demure enough to really make a statement.
Sweet and Sassy
Natalie Portman- Finally! A great maternity gown from Natalie! I knew she'd wear Rodarte (a nice homage to her film's fabulous costume designers), and the plum color on her fair skin and with her brunette locks is just amazing. The matching purple heels and tassel earrings is soooo on trend as well. And best of all, it fits and flatters her growing tummy.
Hailee Steinfeld- Hailee has been my favorite star on the red carpet this past award show and tonight she kept my love going. The length of her Marchesa dress is great for age and her high bun goes perfectly with the entire look. Pink satin pumps and a killer smile adds the nice finishing touch.
Amy Adams- This look is so un-like Amy that I find myself quite attracted to it. The dark midnight blue against her red hair is a delightful effect. And I love the contrast of the emerald green necklace and bracelet. The only fault I find with this L'Wren Scott gown is how heavy it looks for a near springtime affair.
Nicole Kidman- Now this is structure gone wrong. I hate to say this (because I adore Nicole), but this look just looks uncomfortable. The whole Asian kimono effect on the front and the low slit up the side doesn't work. Not to mention the awful red shoe and the eh-ok hair style. Not a good night for Nicole.
Lovely in Lace
Mila Kunis- Definitely a front runner behind Cate, Mila takes my breath away in this Elie Saab gown. It was one of my favorite looks from the designer's runway collection, so I was thrilled to seen it worn on the red carpet. Bottom line, Mila looks great in anything, but I love that she can also pull off the sweet princess look as well. The way it cinches in her waist and hugs her frame is divine. Home Run and a great end to a fabulous award season for Mila.
Jennifer Lawrence- Omg, can you say sexpot? You wouldn't even know Jennifer's only 20 in this Calvin Klein stunner. Now most would say she's too causal for the Oscars, but if you haven't noticed people, minimal is in! A simple, perfectly cut gown like this paired with blown out sexy hair is quite a beautiful effect overall. And her confidence is so inspiring.
Michelle Williams- We all know (at least I hope) that Michelle is a trend setter on the red carpet. So I really like how simple she kept her look tonight. The slight jeweled effect on her cap sleeve Chanel gown is just so modern with her now famous cropped cut. This is a look every star should strive to achieve because sometimes less really is more.
