The Best Looks From the Oscars

One thing you may not know about me is that I am a classic film geek.  To me, the Oscars aren’t just about the current nominated stars; they’re also about the history of film and the iconic winners of the past.  That being said, I won’t go into detail about my personal complaints about last night’s ceremony because I have odd expectations.  I do think, however, that the host sets the tone of any awards show.  Knowing Ellen’s reputation of laid back humor, you can see how she made the evening feel very casual.  But why don’t I get to the part that we all really want to talk about:  the fashion.  Unlike other award shows, the Oscars aren’t about taking risks or making bold fashion statements (unless you’re name is Cher that is).  It is an evening of glamour, elegant gowns, and lots of diamonds.  The gowns last night felt very familiar to me and I wasn’t sure what to make of it.  But after a good nights rest, I have put together a list of my favorites.  Did I see an iconic dress that we’ll remember for the ages?  Maybe.  But at the end of the night, everyone looked like the Hollywood movie stars that they are, and I had a wonderful time being a part of their world for a night.

Cate Blanchett dazzled this Armani Privé gown. The simple silhouette allowed the sparkly opal details and jewelry to be the star of the night.

The most highly anticipated dress of the evening did not disappoint. Lupita Nyong’o was a Grecian goddess in her baby blue Prada gown.

Camila Alves was flawlessly beautiful in this pastel caped Gabriela Cadena gown. Her husband may have won the Oscar, but she won best dressed!
