There were waaay too many gorgeous dresses on the red carpet to make an Oscar's Best and Worst Dressed list so, I figured I would show you guys what was so fabulous this year! There were three trends that really stuck out to me: Column Dresses, Dramatic Skirts, and Glitz!
Sexy and chic, the column dress style was a big winner at this year's Oscars. It's a very elegant cut that lends itself to texture and color with out fear of having a dress look over the top! From Left to Right: Kerry Washington in Miu Miu. I love the color and that sweet bow was just enough! Her dress also had a train which was a nice touch. Stacy Keibler wowed in the Naeem Khan studded dress. I love the neckline and the back of it is to die for as well. Jessica Chastain wore a nude Armani gown. This dress has been on everyone's radar. Sandra Bullock wore one of my favorite designers- Elie Saab. The lace and beading is just amazing on her.
Drama, drama, drama to the floor. I was so delighted to see these fun skirt options. I personally will be wearing a mermaid cut dress in the near future ;). This is a fun way to add some pizzazz to an otherwise drab dress. First we have the lovely Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta. I love the layered tulle skirt. Its absolutely beautiful. Jennifer Garner's dress was my favorite! This Gucci gown was right on the money with color and flair. I also love that she wore a sapphire ring. It's a great accent. The Dior Haute Couture gown worn by Jennifer Lawrence is an exaggerated mermaid style. This is a dress that will be iconic for sure. Kristen Stewart wore a Reem Acra dress. I didn't care much for the entire dress itself but I do love the lower skirt area. It is very unexpected and I think it gave the dress some personality.
It can't be a Hollywood party with out some glitz! Sequins, beading, and high sheen fabrics can really kick a boring design to the next level. Any how, I think all four of these dresses were great and sparkle is all the rage! Nicole Kidman's dress was very unique but I loved it. The L'Wren Scott sequins gown pushed the limits. Adele looked gorgeous in this Jenny Packham dress. It's a lovely silhouette and the beading made a suttle statement. Jennifer Hudson looked awesome. I love this color on her and not pictured is a lovely front slit. Bravo Roberto Cavalli! Last but definitely not least is the breath taking Catherine Zeta Jones. This dress landed spots on some worst dressed list but I think it's rather nice! The detailing on this Zuhair Murad dress is nothing to sneeze at in my opinion.
