Oscar Fashion On The Red Carpet

Overall it was a winning night for Hollywood fashion, very glamorous.  But of course there were the usual misses.  I don't know how these actresses can miss with the best designers at their disposal.

Melissa McCarthy nominated for The Bridesmaids is wearing a Marina Rinaldi coffee-coloured chiffon gown with beaded silver collar and matching belt.  The colour was not the best on her and it was a bit billowy for her shape.  She should have taken a lesson from Octavia Spencer who nailed fashion for a larger figure throughout the awards season.

Viola Davis Best Actress for The Help is wearing a fitted emerald green Vera Wang fitted gown with beading in the bust area. 

Shailene Woodley of The Descendants is wearing a white long sleeved Valentino Couture gown. 

Jessica Chastain nominee for Best Supporting Actress for The Help looks fabulous wearing cooper or gold tones on black Alexander McQueen gown and $2 million of Harry Winston jewels.  It was a difficult dress to pull off, being so regal looking but it suited her perfectly.  She looked like a queen with the dress and her red hair.

Michelle Williams nominated for Marilyn is wearing a red or coral Louis Vuitton dress with frill at waistband that to me looks 1950s inspired with a gold bow brooch at the waist. 

George Clooney is wearing Georgio Armani and Stacy Keibler his girlfriend is wearing a bronze Marchesa off the shoulder gown with fabric draped into a rose at her waist on one side.

Octavia Spencer nominated for best supporting actress for The Help is wearing a draped and fitted silver Tadshi Shoji gown.  She stayed with the same designer for the entire awards season--why mess with success--Tadshi Shoji created a fabulous shaped dress for Octavia's figure and the fabric gleamed and shimmered.  Octavia looked fabulous from the back too.  Congratulations Octavia on your Oscar!

Kristin Wiig is wearing a J. Mendel beige or gold toned gown and Neil Lane jewellery. 

Ema Stone is wearing a Jean Batista Vali gown with a big bow at the neck which looks like the red Balenciaga gown that Nicole Kidman wore at the 2007 Academy Awards.  Ema's dress, however, was a different shade of red and looked fabulous with her hair and skin tone.

Glenn Close wore Zach Posen in green.  She looked very feminine and pulled off a great look for her.

Jennifer Lopez is wearing a Grammy type of dress and no Casper Smart as an accessory.  There were rumours that she had a wardrobe malfunction. 

Rose Byrne is wearing Vivienne Westwood in midnight blue.

Meryl Streep is wearing a gold "Oscar" dress.  Could this be her big night?  Well it was.  Meryl won her third career academy award.  Meryl had not won an Oscar since 1982 when she won for "Sophie's Choice" even though she has been nominated over and over and over again since then.  Meryl was very gracious in accepting her Oscar saying, "I really understand that I'll never be up here again".

Gwyneth Paltrow she looked amazing. She wore a Custom Tom Ford, white dress with a cape/coat and  large cuff sparkly bracelet.  Gwyneth pulled off a simple, elegant and rich look.

Angelina Jolie wore black Versace that had a beautiful shape--modern, and sexy. She was working the look a bit too much for my liking though--what's with the leg sticking out so far.
