best dressed

Hey guys, sorry for the late post, but I've caught another bug and actually woke up at 4am vomitting last night, so yeah. But not going to get into the gross details! I'll post highlights along with mail tomorrow, but for now here are my best dressed for the 82nd Academy Awards:

Carey Mulligan in Prada.- I loved all the little spoons and forks on her dress. Unless you saw a close-up like this you never knew that's what it was; so cute and unique.

Christoph Waltz - I could never find what designer he was wearing, but I have an odd sort of attraction to this man and think he looked pretty damn good when he won his Oscar Sunday night.

Anna Kendrick in Elie Saab - Anna looked GORGEOUS in this gown and even though she has a lighter skin tone, I think the color worked really well on her.

Zoe Saldana in Givenchy - There was a lot of controversy over this gown and I really don't understand why so many people hated it. Because as soon as I saw her in this dress, I immediately knew it was my favorite dress of the night.

Jeremy Renner - Okay, so I don't know AT ALL what the men were wearing, haha. But I love Jeremy Renner and think he looked pretty freakin' handsome.

Miley Cyrus in Jenny Packham - At first, I didn't like this dress; and I really don't like the fact that by what Miley's wearing these days it looks as if she'll be the next Britney-trainwreck. But as you get a closer look at the gown, it really is pretty. Not so sure as if it's right for The Academy Awards, but I think the up-do helped.

Vera Farmiga in Marchesa - Unlike most of the critics, I think this dress was PERFECT for the Oscars and for Vera. Jut everything about it really stood out to me and I loved the color.

Kristen Stewart in Monique Lhuillier - Unlike most people I know, I love Kristen Stewart and think she's a wonderful actress; and her street-style is awesome as well. So I really liked the fact that she actually dressed for the Oscars and had her usually messy hair all pulled back and kept it simple, yet stunning.

Robert Downey Jr. - Oh my goodness, how can you not love him? He was the only guy to take some sort of a risk when it came to fashion Sunday night and it wasn't even that big of a risk. Tell me, what's so wrong with a colored bow-tie?

Meryl Streep in Chris March - As mentioned before, I truly think Meryl deserved to win and she looked ready to walk up those steps in this beautiful age-appropriate dress. Honestly, I can't think of a time where she looked better than this.

Amanda Seyfried in Armani Prive - One of the few girls actually dressing like they used to for the Academy Awards; in big, fluffy, wonderful ball-gowns. Only problem I had was all the jewelry piled up on one arm, tsk tsk.

Sandra Bullock in Marchesa - And of course, the golden-gal of the night, Miss Sandy Bullock herself looked stunning in this glittery gown. My only complaint would be her hair, it looks really oily and just kind of plain. Maybe a side-swept bun would have been better.

Until tomorrow,
