The 82nd Oscars took to the Red Carpet – and the fashions were decadent and tasteful. I had too many favorites – it was hard to pick only 5! But here they are – my top 5 Oscar Fashions:
MY NUMBER ONE: Zoe Saldana wore a gorgeous purple Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci Spring 2010 gown. The moment I spotted her wearing this purple explosion of a dress, I died in the ways of Rachel Zoe – a thousand times over. A sequined bodice, with ruffled shades of purple bursting along the bottom. Delicious couture – and she pulled it off beautifully..
SECOND: Miley Cyrus wore a champagne Jenny Packham dress that dazzled. As much as I am averse to Ms. Miley, I couldn’t help but fall in love with her elegant dress. Just below the bodice, sequins rained down on the dress as it fluttered to her feet. Very “Cinderella” – however, she did look a bit uncomfortable in her fairy-tale gown. It was slightly nerving to watch her glide in it – it looked like she couldn’t breathe!
THIRD: Sarah Jessica Parker, aka SJP, aka fashion icon. There is not one dress that she can’t pull off. NOT. ONE. Walking on the red carpet with her yellow Chanel Haute Couture strap-less dress – she looked like a Grecian goddess. I loved the silver breastplate, with a matching one along the back – following a silver flower gathering fabric below her bum. I do have to say, her hair had a bit too much bun – slightly freakish..but nevertheless – she looked exquisite.
FOURTH: Cameron Diaz – the moment I saw her dress, I knew that it was Oscar de la Renta. She wore a champagne strap-less tulle dress, with gold paillete embroidery dripping down from the bodice. Very Old Hollywood Glam.
FIFTH: Rachel McAdams in a Elie Saab Haute Couture floral print gown – complete with shades of blue, green and pink. My favorite part of her dress was the sweetheart neckline, pleated bodice and buttons that fell down along the back of her dress. She pulled this look off with flying colors..
This year’s Oscars did not disappoint – lots of exciting and fearless fashions. I hated that it went by too fast – but we always have next year.
