Oscar Action

Natalie Portman in Rodarte

The Hollywood girls turned out on the red carpet in top form. Lots of gorgeous sophistication and overall chic.  The keys for the night were neutral (my favorite looks), a range of purples and shades of red.  

Michelle Williams in Chanel
Gwyneth Paltrow in Calvin Klein Collection

Halle Berry in Marchesa

These sparkly nude-shades were the best. I loved Michelle Williams in Chanel -- always a bit gamine, uberstylish and simply chic.  Gwyneth looked modern and cool. And Halle Berry is beautiful and knows exactly what works for her. That skin! The understated shades really let the beauty of the actresses shine... something to think about and apply to our own wardrobe choices.

Mila Kunis in Elie Saab

Cate Blanchett in Givenchy

Interesting that purple was such a dominant color. I suppose it pops on the red carpet, is feminine, and not outrageously bold -- especially lavender. Mila Kunis looks perfectly pretty in her lacy, boudoir-inspired gown.  And I love that we can count on Cate Blanchett to bring a real dose of fashion -- always with an avant-edge. And her hair was so chic.  Other than Reese Witherspoon, not a lot of black this year. 

Jennifer Lawrence in Calvin Klein Collection

Jennifer Lawrence was my favorite in the color category. She looked modern and young and gorgeous. The sleek shape was perfect for her... and goes to show that you do not need an over-the-top evening gown to make a statement.

Penelope Cruz in L'Wren Scott
Bravo to Penelope Cruz who just had a baby!  She is a natural beauty -- and although her dress was a little showgirl for my tastes, she looked amazing!

  1. Beautiful dresses. I find most Marchesa gowns just breathtaking. Would love to know your thoughts on those two fairly new designers; and pics of some of your favorites.
