Although I wasn't able to watch the Oscars this year (homework, blech), I couldn't miss out on all the gorgeous dresses! Here are my favorites, loosely in order from least to most favorite. :)
Jane Fonda. I mostly love this dress for the bright color. Not a lot of ladies wear such bright colors to the Oscars, so this one stands out. I also like the gold detail at the waist. The entire look is pretty 80s, which isn't necessarily a good thing, but I think it fits her.
Love Adele's 60s hair and makeup!
I used to hate shoulder pads... But Halle Berry's dress uses them so well! I am also a fan of the contrasting stripes.
Love the simple lines and the stark white of Charlize Theron's dress. Also digging her short hair! She is so gorgeous.
Gold is such a great color on Catherine Zeta-Jones. The swirl decorations on the skirt are beautiful and the huge earrings are a great touch.
Lara Spencer. I like this dress mostly for the shape of the one shoulder, which is a nice change from other one shoulder dresses. I wish I could see the bottom of the dress. I also really love her natural hair and makeup.
I love the lines on Norah Jones' dress. I also like the shade of dark grey.
Octavia Spencer's dress is a lovely shade of light peach. I love the addition of dark red nail polish, it complements the dress well.
Love the sheer sleeves and emerald ring of Sally Field's look.
Reece Witherspoon is always gorgeous. Even though this shade of blue is one of my least favorite colors, it looks amazing with her blonde hair. The entire dress fits her very well and I love the train.
Naomi Watts looks lovely in this shiny silver dress. I love the cutout on the shoulder. The cutout and the shininess add interest to the otherwise simple dress.
I read someone describe Salma Hayek's outfit as alluding to Cleopatra, who is one of my favorite historical figures. I love the high, gold neck and black skirt on this dress. She also looks gorgeous with the high hairstyle.
Jennifer Aniston's look was one of my absolute favorites. I think this dress is just perfect on her. It's simple, classy, and her hair and makeup are stunning.
I love love love Jennifer Lawrence's outfit. I like how the dress is form fitting on the top and then blossoms out into a gorgeous skirt. Her earrings and clutch look great with the dress. She is so beautiful!
