|Jennifer Hudson was stunning in Versace|
There were a lot of Highs on the red carpet and even the lows were not so bad. There really weren't many fashion tragedies. So I would have to say that they ladies really took their time to make sure they all looked fabulous on the red carpet this year, which was a little surprising.
What we noticed on the red carpet. Lots of red and oranges. Navy and tones of Purple were also big. Nudes, golds, silvers and sparkle were also a hit. Hair do's ranged from high glam to tossled mess. But all in all it worked. The men - you can't really go wrong with a classic tux - though Russel Brand needs some styling help.
So for this years Oscars Red Carpet I would give it an A-. Lots of great looks with just some misses.
Here's an overview of my Hots and not so hot.
|Michelle Williams in Chanel, Mandy Moore in Monique Lhuillier, Gwyneth Paltrow in Calvin Klein, and Melissa Leo in Marc Bouwers.|
|Sandra Bullock in Vera Wang, Hailee Steinfeld in Marchesa, Natalie Portman in Rodarte, and Mila Kunis in Elie Saab.|
|Reese Witherspoon in Giorgio Armani Prive, Helen Mirren in Vivienne Westwood, Amy Adams in L'Wren Scott, and Annette Benning in Naeem Kham.|
NOT MY FAVORITE LOOK OF THE NIGHT
THE MANY LOOKS OF ANNE HATHAWAY

|in Atelier Versace (my least favorite dress of hers that evening the scarf things ruined it for me)|
|in Vivienne Westwood (loved the nod to Black Swan)|
|in Oscar de la Renta (Fabulous Fabulous Fabulous)|
|in Valentino (Red Carpet Stunner)|
There you have it, my Oscar red carpet recap. We all have our likes and dislikes and this is purely my own opinion, but I do have to say that there really weren't many that went wrong this year. Can't wait for next years award season! Could we possibly seeing some of these styles on the White Carpet soon? I can see how some of these gowns can easily translate to the wedding aisle as well as for bridesmaids!
