Interesting Oscars show last night…I guess I need to see that Hugo film! Well, on to the fashion!
The photo collage above has some beautiful dresses included, but not all are best dressed material! Read on to see why. ; )
MY BEST DRESSED LIST
GWYNETH PALTROW IN TOM FORD

The cape is genius. I have to admit the dress itself does not have the “wow” factor though it is lovely and simple. But, the cape takes it over the top- it was just visually interesting and I thought Gwyneth knocked it out of the park.
MICHELLE WILLIAMS IN LOUIS VUITTON
I don’t recall Louis Vuitton making an appearance on the red carpet very often, but that may be changing. This dress is young, fresh and in the most joyful shade of coral. In the past, it’s been noted that Michelle is not always the most sunny personality on the red carpet, but it looks like this frock lifted her spirits. How could you not be happy in this dress?!
OCTAVIA SPENCER IN TADASHI SHOJI
The beading on this gown is exquisite. I couldn’t stop looking at it, especially during close ups! Octavia is perfection in this dress and couldn’t have looked lovelier.
Again, the photo collage above includes some good contenders for worst dressed and so I’ll just briefly mention a few, but not all deserve to be on that list. Sandra Bullock’s dress is actually very beautiful, and I don’t mind that it’s not skin tight. If it had been taken in at the waist just a little, she would’ve been on my Best Dressed list. And at least Rooney Mara wore a white dress this time.
Now for my actual Worst Dressed List, Melissa McCarthy’s Marina Rinaldi dress just didn’t do it for me. While I loved the jeweled neckline, that alone couldn’t save the dress from the unfortunate sleeves and unflattering color. Berenice Bejo wore a mint green Elie Saab dress, but the long sleeves and retro hue was a big miss. This would’ve been more appropriate for dame Helen Mirren.
Surprisingly, the third worst dress was not included in the photo series above, so here it is below.
ANNA FARRIS IN DIANE VON FURSTENBERG
Again, with the age-inappropriate long sleeves. From the neck up, Anna looks gorgeous, but this Morticia Addams meets disco get up should’ve stayed with the stylist. She did use a stylist right?
What were your best and worst dressed Oscar nominees?
