It takes a certain finesse to own a gown. Oscar night was full of gowns wearing stars and not the other way around. It’s hard to find a dress that is eye-catching, sexy and out of the ordinary in the first place without running into trouble. Even harder, is making it look like it was made to be worn by you. Here are a few stars that got it right on Oscar Night!
A good black gown rules at the Oscars! This woman knows what suits her. Angelina shines in a gorgeous Elie Saab Black floor length gown. Her accessories (Green, my favorite color) add just the right amount of mystery to her look. Love it!
Next up, Anne Hathaway
Anne is Luminescent is this gorgeous, pearly, Armani Prive gown. The moon-pale color and sets off her skin tone perfectly, and the shape is classic. She looks like a Oscar Winner.
Natalie Portman is next.
Looking sweetly divine in this lilac Rodarte masterpiece, Natalie commands camera attention. I love the silhouette of this dress, and the color goes nicely with her complexion.
All hail Halle Berry!
A star through and through the sexiest woman alive doesn’t disappoint. The lovely actress glimmers in this gold and black Marchesa Stunner. Show ’em how it’s done Halle!
Marisa Tomei takes the crown
She truly owned this very unique dress. As I mentioned above, it isn’t easy wearing a dress that could easily wear you, but she did it! This origami, pleated Versace gown is very elegant and obviously meant for a Superstar. Her curves were well highlighted, and you can clearly see she is proud to wear this dress. Well Done Marisa!
It is my personal policy not to name names of the worst dressed, even if the whole world knows. I will however, leave hints!!
Worst Dressed Hints:
A head honcho from the House of Dereon sparkled during her dance number, but sadly floundered due to a bad fishtail gown that was just not Oscar worthy. There was also a “Bolt” star who looked more like a snowflake than an Oscar nominee. Certainly there were more, but I like to focus on the positive, like Kate Winslet winning best actress!!
Vanessa Hudgens and Jennifer Aniston both looked flawlessly lovely in their gowns, although neither shined brightly enough to make this list.
