On the red carpet @ Oscars 2012

I am very happy that I managed to see the Oscars last night and I mean not only the Red Carpet but the whole ceremony as well. You see is a bank holiday today, so we could stay up all night long with no regrets for being tired at work..! While writing this post, I am sitting in my sofa, drinking my hot latte! Pure bliss..
But let's stay focused on our subject! Yesterday Oscars' red carpet had glam, jet blacks, sexy details, sparkles, whites - many whites - and fiery reds! I thought that it would be better to share with you my favorite 10 appearances sorting them out by color, so lets start with the...
Angelina looked simply amazing and so sexy, in her velvet, high slit Versace Atelier. Her hair and the red lipstick just completed a perfect appearance.

Jessica Chastain made one of the best appearances by choosing Alexander McQueen! The structure and the gold embroidery of the dress were really exquisite.

Once again I loved the sleek beauty of Gwyneth Paltrow. She was undoubtedly the queen of minimal in her Tom Ford gown and..cape - yeah the cape made a statement. Her appearance in two words: pure class!

JLo was stunning in her white- sillver Zuhair Murad dress! Low neckline and back-line, cut-out shoulders and tight wrapping around her hips. In a word? Sexy..

Rooney Mara in a beautiful Givenchy gown! Unfortunately I couldn't find photos to show you the back of the dress which was amazing!

Academy award winner Octavia Spencer knows how to hit the red carpet! Her shimmering white Tadashi Shoji  - the designer behind all her award appearances this season - "flattered" her figure making her look very very chic!!

Milla Jovovits in Elie Saab! Well, when it comes to Elie Saab no words are needed..Pure perfection.

I think Kristen Wiig was one of the few who went with the nude shades, but this nude - sand, tulle JMendel dress really made my heart beat a little faster!

Emma Stone apparently took a risk and won! She wore a Giambattista Valli gown that was very similar to the Balenciaga one that Nicole Kidman wore in 2007, with common characteristic the big bow. BUT if you ask me, Emma was just amazing whereas Nicole Kidman wasn't one of my favorites back then. I think the Giambattista Valli was much more "flowing" and after all you know what? Who cares about 2007? Emma was once again bold & beautiful.

Last but not least, Michelle Williams looked very pretty in her orange/red Louis Vuitton gown. Accessorized it with a diamond bow brooch and pink fuchsia clutch, her appearance this year was one of my favorites.

Oh! I'd like to share with you an extra favorite. Personally I think that the beautiful TV presenter Louise Roe was one of the best dressed of the night in her Black Halo long sleeved gown. This jacket effect looked very very chic on her.

  1. Completely agree with your choices, except J.Lo! Really didn't like that dress!


  2. loved angelina, milla, rooney, jessica and gwyneth!


  3. i thought angelina looked like a complete idiot always posing with her leg like that..other than than i dont care for her look to me she alway looks the same...on the other hand milla jovovits looked amazing and i really like kristen wiig's dress she looked really good

    1. hahaaha! Perhaps you are right about the posing. But I really liked the dress!

  4. ναι σε ολα, εκτος απο την Lopez. πολυ βητα. μου θυμιζει ελληνιδα τραγουδιστρια πιστας (aka μπουζουξου)στην εποχη των παχιων αγελαδων...

  5. Elie Saab just has the most amazing dresses. And the other person is right, the leg pose for Angelina is a bit annoying haha but I have to say the last black dress she wore to the SAG awards looked great too so thumbs up for the dresses!


  6. Great picks! My favorite, however, would be Octavia Spencer's flattering and elegant dress. Not only did she win a prestigious acting award, she also won the applause of fashion critics everywhere! Kudos to Tadashi Shoji as well for giving Octavia her winning looks this awards season.
