2015 Oscars Best Dressed Goes To…

The ceremony is currently on going but we’ve seen ’em beautiful dresses in the red carpet… let me just present to you my best dressed celebs for this year’s biggest night in Hollywood…

The refine beauty of Emma Stone is off the charts in this long-sleeved mint green Elie Saab gown ! She nailed it from head to toe! Easy A!Emma Stone

Gywneth Paltrow does not know how not to work the red carpet with her penchant for subdued colors with gritty details – you gotta admit though, it works all the time! Here, she’s sporting a custom made gown from Ralph & Russo with a decidedly massive rose on the left shoulder. Glamazing!Gwyneth Paltrow

Julianne Moore showed off a custom made Karl Lagerfeld-designed gown by Chanel. Looking etherally beautiful in white, this strapless gown with Chopra jewels apparently took 927 hours to look this way! That is serious working hours but definitely worth it!Julianne Moore

Reese Witherspoon wears Tom Ford and was looking like an old-school Hollywood star! Shining through, shining through!Reese Witherspoon

Class personified. The 19x Oscar nominated actress arrived at the red carpet wearing a custom made Lanvin creation by Alber Elbaz – not too risky, not too grand. Just something befitted for someone like THE Meryl Streep.Meryl Streep

My 2013 Oscars Best Dressed – Ball Gowns, Laces And All Things Minimal

Ho! ho! ho! We witnessed yet again another night of glitz and glamour as the 85th Academy Awards came to it’s conclusion last night at the Dolby Theater.  The (my) Oscar fever ain’t over yet though as I am naming my top 10 Best Dressed for this year’s ceremony.

10. Amanda Seyfried

Amanda Seyfriend was looking etherially good a custom made Alexander McQueen gown matching it with Roger Vivier shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

7. Charlize Theron

Like Lawrence, Charlize also wore a white Dior dress which reminds me of the White dress explosion from last year's ceremony. She still pulled if off though and I'm loving her in this dress!

3. Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart was in a very beautiful Reem Acra gown who walked the red carpet in crutches. The actress apparently had her foot cut on glass two days before the big O. With or without the crutches, Kristen is rocking this look effortlessly!

NUMERO UNO – ULTIMATE BEST DRESSED!

JESSICA CHASTAIN

She may have lost the big prize to Jennifer Lawrence but she clearly outstaged the Best Actress winner at the red carpet. Jessica was looking oh-so-good in a sequined Armani Prive nude gown. This girl's flawless! She's definitely my ultimate best dressed!

My 2012 Oscars Best Dressed!

Another night of glamour came upon us as the stars of the good ‘ol Hollywood took the red carpet by storm in this year’s Academy Awards! Here are my Top 10 Choices for this year’s Oscars….

10th Place goes to my favorite Emma Stone in a fuchsia Giambattista Valli gown and Louis Vuitton jewels! The Help star never fails to impress me and this time, it ain’t the ultimate dress but she made the top 10! Congrats bb…

9th. Possible Best Actress winner and Emma Stone’s co-star  Viola Davis is wearing an emerald green Vera Wang creation and she’s not wearing any weave! Girl.is.rocking.it! Bravo to you Viola!

8th. Jennifer Lopez can do no wrong with this champagne strap Zuhair Murad dress with a peek-a-boo sleeves! Welcome back to the list ‘ma!

7th. The girl with the dragon tattoo Rooney Mara is still as shy as her character and it’s working on the red carpet! I love her in this white sculptured Givenchy Haute Couture floor length gown.

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

5th. This is the 2nd year of Jessica on my list and she’s doing really great! She’s nominated tonight for The Help she’s wearing this amazing hand-embroidered Alexander McQueen gown. She looks exsquisite this lady!

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

3rd. I’m not really a fan of Michelle William’s pixie hair cut so I tend to ignore her from the past awards season but tonight is different! She’s glowing and channeling Marilyn Monroe’s sheer elegance and beauty in this Louis Vuitton red peplum gown!

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!

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.

SPECIAL CITATION:
