Best in Show

I had been looking forward to The Academy Awards all week, and when I got caught up at work Sunday night, I was terrified I was going to miss it. At a quarter after 7 I rushed home to catch whatever else I could of Hollywood's most glamorous evening. Although I missed the Red Carpet pre-shows (which is typically all I tune in for), I managed to get home in time to catch the main event only missing about 30 minutes of the broadcast. Here are some of my picks for best dressed from last night.

High Notes

Cate Blanchett was a one-of-a-kind beauty in this strong and elegant Givenchy number, while Mila Kunis embodied ladylike poise in Elie Saab.

Natalie Portman glowed in an empire waist gown from Rodarte, and Scarlett Johansson was stunning in a Dolce & Gabbana lace dress.

Swan Song

This year The Oscars was the year of the pale dress. Many actresses seemed to have drawn inspiration from this years hit film Black Swan. Leading ladies dawned nude and pale, shimmering frocks fit for any Swan Queen. From pearly beading and soft feathers to chiffon, crystals and delicate metallics, the Red Carpet was a sea of wintery beauties.
Below are some of my favorite looks from the night, including Halle Berry in Marchesa (demonstrating that she truly can pull off anything) and Hilary Swank in Gucci. Hailee Steinfeld made her debut also in Marchesa, and Michelle Williams (who I think was a dead ringer for Twiggy with her pixie cut and wide-eyed gaze) was exquisite in Chanel.

Almost spot on with my list for the evening. Love, love Mila Kunis in that dreamy dress.
