    My 2012 Oscar Fashion Favorites

    With this year’s Oscars came the usual red carpet fashion show. I think that’s the best part for many viewers—at least, it is for me! Let’s have some fun and share our favorites.

    I think that there were a lot of lovely dresses this year, but I did notice some standouts!

    For most unique, I picked Kristen Wiig’s fun dress. Her strapless nude gown had a fitted bodice and featured chiffon ruffles for the skirt. I thought it was gorgeous and looked perfect on her.

    For glamor, I selected both Milla Jovovich and Stacy Keibler. Both dresses shared very similar features: They were one shouldered, fitted without being too tight, and featured fishtails. But each dress had different overall effects. Jovovich’s heavily sequined white gown created a stunning shimmery look. Keibler’s Grecian-style metallic gold dress was the picture of elegance. And I loved how the material flowed in soft folds and swooped up into a “rose” design on the hip.

    For simple but stunning, I picked Natalie Portman and Gwyneth Paltrow. Red is my favorite color, so Portman’s gown with black polka dots caught my eye. I thought it was very classic and chic. Paltrow’s ensemble was very modest, but so stylish. I thought this dress was perfect for her.

    My absolute favorite dress was Penelope’s Cruz’s. She selected a style that didn’t fit the obvious trend on this year’s red carpet. You may have noticed all the strapless, fitted, fishtail styles. Not Penelope. She selected a beautiful flowing princess gown in a gorgeous blue. I loved it.

    I’d have chosen Angelina Jolie’s black dress as a favorite–I thought it was lovely. But I was not a fan of the huge slit, the uncomfortable stance or the protruding leg, all of which was obviously meant to be part of the ensemble.

    I did decide to include one dress that I didn’t like. Surprisingly, this was considered one of the best dresses at the event. Jennifer Lopez‘s gown, in my opinion, was too tight, too revealing and way too stripe-y in all the wrong directions. I’ll leave it at that.
