Favorite Oscar Dresses 2012

1. Angelina Jolie is posing in a black, velvet Atelier Versace gown; 2. Natalie Portman's red poka-dot dress is vintage Dior Haute Couture; 3. Cameron Diaz has on a glittering, Gucci gown with Tiffany jewels; 4. Stacy Keibler is wearing a stunning, liquid gold, Marchesa dress and her for-now boyfriend, a debonair George Clooney; Penelope Cruz's smoked blue gown is a custom designed Armani Privé.

Overall, the attendees looked smashing at last night's Academy Awards, in my opinion.  I didn't see any big missteps.  Since actresses hire stylists today, we don't see many embarrishments.  I think celebrities had fun with this year's gowns, but still appeared glamorous.  While last year's dresses were classic and pretty, the trends this year were gowns with one shoulder and other asymmetrical pieces ... plus a few long sleeves.  As you can see, I didn't mind Angelina's leg, but most of the one-shoulder gowns didn't make my list.  Fashion is subjective. [I love that shimmering blue dress behind Penelope Cruz above too.]

So ... who wore your favorites? 


  1. I'll have to wait till I have seen Fashion Police! Joan Rivers is very funny on that, and they usually bring out a lot of good points about the fashions. You're right - the gowns were very glamorous this year!

  2. I loved all the red gowns a few of the attendees wore. Red just stands out and is so vibrant. The French actress, Bérénice, looked very chic in her mint green dress. I liked her long sleeves. I heard it was cold in LA at the awards.

  3. Rachelle,

    I thought Berenice looked stylist too. Sophisticated dress and one she was probably able to wear all evening. Savvy gal.
