Pretty Dress Watch, Oscars Special ….

I love the oscars, I know its not totally *rock & roll* to say that in these more serious, subdued  times. But its exactly this,  that makes the oscars such an escapist pleasure.

I am not really bothered who gets to take home an award  really though, its just the dresses…and oh what dresses….

Michelle Williams,  in Louis Vuitton got my best dressed vote ( followed closely by Penelope Cruz, channelling Elizabeth Taylor ) .

From the colour of the beautifully cut frothy fabric to the freshness of her pretty face, she  just blew me away!  What’s  your fave?

    LOVE Michelle is totally my icon right now. I want to be her when I grow up (I bet she’s younger than me).

    Also adore Claire Danes, but when did Kelly O get a purple rinse?!

    Angelina & Penelope stole the show for me last night in old Hollywood glamour. Nearly as scene stealing as The Artist itself. What a night. I dream to attend one day!

    Michelle’s dress is cute and it really suits her. Penelope’s dress wins it for me though – it’s got that luxury-glam, authentic red carpet feel about it… Look how well it drapes! :)

  4. Oh the dresses.. the dresses.. Is it just me or was this year just the best ever? Michelle looked absolutely gorgeous and Penelope too but I think my favourite had to be Gwyneth. I just think that dress was breathtakingly beautiful. She’s one of those perfect people who I want to hate but man alive she looked beautiful! x

    I’ve got to go with Mostly, Gwynie wins it for me too, simple but oh so gorgeous. Claire Danes looks pretty fab too!

    Oh to have a reason to dress up like that!

      agreed she looked absolutely gorg! she is now completely forgiven for the Alexander McQueen sheer (nipple) number at the 2002 Oscars :) ) ‘girls come a loooooong way! xxx

    Michelle won it for me too, colour and shape just perfect! I also loved Glenn Close, wonderful colour and a smart choice.

    I was just about to text you a pic of Michelle when I thought oh Helen mentioned blogging about the dresses so I thought I’d come by first. How funny that we both loved Michelle’s red dress the best!
    Did you see the tiny bow!
    And I agree who cares about the awards really it’s all about the glamor!
    Tho I wanted Michelle to have won best actress :(

    My favorite is def Penelope. This dress just screams “Oscar night” at me. I also love the blue dress upper right (whoever it is whose wearing it) and of course Gwyneth – totally her style! So much better than the Calvin Klein she wore when she won an award.

    P.S.: Cared about the awards this year: Got a friend who has been assistant editor for “the girl with the dragon tatoo” – so proud that he’s a part of the winning team! :)
