6th. Let’s face it, Angelina’s the closest thing to perfection! In this Versace dress, LaJolie’s A+ power and stature is undeniable!

4th. George Clooney’s lady love stole the show by showing up in a gold Marchesa gown. Girl look so godly she’s untouchable!

2nd.  Milla Jovovich is wearing a one-shoulder Elie  Saab couture with matching retro hair and red lips! This is how a kick-ass red carpet should look like!

Nicole Kidman came tonight in a white embroidered Dior Couture gown. We’re completely speechless. We don’t know what to make of Nicole anymore. What happened to you girl????? We don’t want to do this but we have to. You are our Ultimate Worst Dressed. Sorry Nic…

Hailee Steinfeld -Don’t get us wrong. We love Hailee, I mean she’s all sweet and pretty but we’re not feeling this Marchesa gown for her. It’s just too Prom-ish…

Hilary Swank in a sequined and feathered strapless Gucci Premiere gown. We’ve seen this worn by a couple or three celebs in the red carpet. Sorry Hilary, we’re not buying it this time. So 2000 and late.

Helena Bonham Carter is wearing a creation from costume designer Colleen Atwood. We love her originality but that’s just it. That dress is a costume!

Sandra Bullock in a strapless Vera Wang gown

Yes, Sandra you’re funny and all but this doesn’t work for you. We still have the vivid memory of your Golden Globe’s hair. Atleast the bangs are gone –kudos to you girl!

Sharon Stone was wearing a feathered piece Black Swan inspired gown. *mum*

Host Ann Hathaway chose to wear a vintage Valentino gown for the red carpet. She had several outfit changes in the night. We’re counting on the red carpet dress, Anne. Sorry.

The Oscar’s Fashion 2010 Edition

The BESTest!

Actress Rachel McAdams is definitely tonight’s big winner on the red carpet wearing Elie Saab creation.

Check this out! JLo never ceased to rock it on the red carpet! she’s wearing an Armani Prive gown.

this is what you call elegance, the 16th time Oscar nominated Meryl Streep wowed everyone with this regal creation of Project Runway alums Chris March.

Kristen Stewart is a first time Oscar attendee rocking a Monique Lhuillier gothic creation!

Kate Winslet can do no wrong with Yves Saint Laurent‘s creation.

***

FAILED!!!

I cannot for the life of me understand what the rose accent Charlize Theron was wearing on her lumps with her Christian Dior gown.

I love Vera Farmiga in Up In The Air but this Marchesa‘s creation is so over the top and way too busy that you cannot find the best supporting actress nominee.

This Givenchy creation is not just right for Zoe Saldana –there’s something off with it.

First time Best Actress nominee Carey Mulligan didn’t take Vogue’s editor Anna Wintour‘s advise and this was the dreadful results.  I’m lovin’ the Prada dress but what’s with the shoes???

I seriously don’t get the whole look of Amanda Seyfried tonight –it’s all too old fashion. It’s probably because JLo already got the better Armani Prive dress.
