Oscar Fashion!

I almost stayed awake for the entire award show last night. Fortunately, my favorite part of the event happens before the ceremony begins: the red carpet fashion! Here are a few of my hits and misses.

Anne Hathaway - I thought she looked amazing. So elegant.

Taraji P. Henson - I loved everything about this look - the hair, the jewelry, the dress. She looked lovely.

Natalie Portman - I think she is so gorgeous and I love this dress. It is pink after all!

Penelope Cruz - She always looks amazing and she did not disappoint last night.

Marisa Tomei - She redeemed herself from her fashion disaster at the Golden Globes. Love it!

Now for some looks I was not so fond of.....

Reese Witherspoon - It kills me to say this but I hate it! I normally love what she wears but this is just wrong. The color of the dress, the hair, the make up - all wrong. So very wrong.

Jessica Biel - Where to begin? I don't get this dress. I think it looks sloppy and is totally unflattering on her. Bad choice. I can't imagine Justin approved of this.

Miley Cyrus - Let me preface this by saying that I am not a Miley Cyrus fan. I did, however, love the red Valentino dress she wore to last year's Oscars. This year, not so much. I just think this is too much and too old for her. It reminds me of a bad Barbie dress.

Penelope Cruz looked fabulous! I actually liked Reese Witherspoon's dress, and I think it was because it was so different for her.

Miley Cyrus looked like a fish.

I loved Taraji P. Henson's look, right down to that gorgeous red clutch.

Taraji's dress was gorgeous, and reminded me of the one Michelle Obama wore on Inaugural night. As for Miley - reminded me of an oversized leafy vegetable, like a head of romaine lettuce or something. Luckily she's young enough to get away with anything.

Reese Witherspoon - unflattering in every way.
