Last night was the biggest night of the year, the 84th Oscar awards. The stars dazzled up the red carpet in some AMAZING dresses! The best dresses were definitely saved for the Oscar's! Although, there was a lot of black and white gowns, there were some brave stars who mixed it up with a bit of colour. Here is my pick of the best dressed from The Oscars 2012!
My favourite dress from the night has to be Emma Stones. She looked stunning in raspberry Giambattista Valli. It really reminded me of Nicole Kidman's amazing dress from 2007. I loved the colour, the shape and the simple accessories. Emma's make up and hair suited the dress perfectly with a glam up do and simple make up with a focus on the winged eye. GORGEOUS!
Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman also went for bright colours, both in red coral dresses. Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton and Natalie Portman in vintage Haute Couture Christian Dior. Out of the two dresses I prefer Natalies. She just looks incredible in the polka dots! I love that she wore vintage, the dress originally from 1954 looks magnificent on her.
Maria Menounos wore a dazzling Maria Lucia Hohan gown. I loved the ancient Greek feel to it. The mint green colour really suited Maria making her look stunning. I also love how she styled her hair. The loose romantic bun really works well with the gown.
Angelina Jolie looked amazing as always in Atelier Versace. I feel she did play it a bit safe though with black. She had so many choices to pick from that she put all the names of the dresses into a bowl and had Brad Pitt's mother pick out a dress! I do love how she styled her hair and make up. As always she looks radiant!
White was one of the most popular dress colours of the night with Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford, Cameron Diaz in Gucci, Giuliana Rancic in Tony Ward and J. Lo in Zuhair Murad. My favourite of the white dresses goes to Giuliana Rancic. She looks so beautiful! You would never know she is battling with cancer. Many people online are loving Gwyneth's dress, I'm not too sure about the cape though! I also wasn't too keen on Jennifer Lopez's dress.... I think it had a bit too much going on!
Overall I think the standard this year was amazing! The best dresses from this years award season by far! What did you think?
