Here are the dresses which caught my eye at this year's Academy Awards. Several that didn't make my list (worn by Emilia Clark and Michelle Yeoh) shimmered and looked beautiful on television, but didn't photograph well. Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet win the award for cutest couple of the evening.
As I look over my selected 10 I notice my practical side emerges: Each dress can be worn again to other galas (which isn't a requirement). Also I do not like to see in between breasts; not that I'm scandalized by it, I simply don't like the look. Moreover, there's nothing wrong with wearing a fun gown, but an Oscar goer should also aim to look glamorous that evening. What if you don't go again? It's your one chance to shine!
My 10 picks are feminine, timeless and flatter the wearer:
1) Marina De Tavira wearing a stunning red Reem Acra gown; 2) Tessa Thompson in a classic black with silver glitter Chanel dress; 3) Amy Adams wearing a shimmering Darren Le Gallo dress,; 4) Tina Fey in a can-never-go-wrong sapphire Vera Wang dress; 5) Letitia Wright wearing a Dior Haute Couture dress; 6) Helen Mirren looking lovely in a pink Schiaparelli gown; 7) Laura Dern in a shapely Rodarte dress; 8) Jason Momoa & Lisa Bonet look adorable in their matching pink ; 9) Leslie Bibb in an oo la la pretty lace champagne-colored ??? gown; and finally 10) Elaine Welteroth wearing a darling Celia Kritharioti dress.

There ... I published my Oscar list for 2019 before seeing what others think! Which gowns do (or did) you like on the red carpet?
