Calista's stands out the most to me.

Live Fabulously said...

i loved marion's dress. and jen garner looked very pretty. but nothing really stood out...the fashion was kind of boring.

bitterbabe said...

I seriously thought everybody looked really good tonight! no real fashion disasters... except Jhudson's boobs looked pretty weird in that dress...

nannies crochet said...

luv this posting. My best dressed red carpet award goes to Heidi Klum, Tilda Swinton, Katherine Heigl, Renne Zellweger, Hiliary Swank

Cate said...

great videos! i couldn't watch the oscars because they strted at 0.30 here in europe and i had to get up at 7.15 today ;(
who is the guy talking in the videos? oh and it's nice to see that you don't have such a huge tv as most people do... ours is TINY ^^ it hails from the 80s ^^
and i thought exactly the same as you said: what's miley cyrus doing there? ^^
i saw "the princess diaries" with anne hathaway yesterday - just thought i'd share because she appeared in the first video ^^ but i don't like the pom-pom things at her dress
-gosh i don't like cameron diaz.
-i LOVE amy adams's (dunno if i got the name right?) purse!!!! i just wouldn't take it to the oscars because i wouldn't want to carry it around all the time. in fact, i don't know if i'd take a purse at all...
-and yay cate blanchett's great!!!
-but renée zellweger's hair is ugly.
-and i think katherine heigl is overrated. i mean okay, she's like everybody's darling but...
-miley cyrus and heidi klum wore very similar dresses.
-oooh in comparison to all the red all the black dresses look like straight off a funeral...not that i don't like black but you showed all the photos of the red dresses first and then the black.
-ugh stacy london's dress awakens tent associations.
-penélope cruz looks wonderful though.

fritha louise said...

I LOVE Anne Hathaway's dress, the colour looks great on her and the flower detailing is lovely.
Tilda Swinton always looks a bit scary to me for some reason. I thought her dress was a bit wraith-like too..

Debbie Shiamay said...

I LOVEEE most of the dresses this time around. And heidi is my absolute favourtie. Its red and hot and the neckline is awesome to the maxxxx!

the iron chic said...

Amy Adams and Marion Cotillard!
Is it me or does Patrick Dempsey's wife look like Heather Mills?

Tala said...

what is up with not wearing any colors! just red, black, and white... very postmodern.

thanks for this post!

coco said...

I knew you would do fab coverage of the Oscars, I am going to watch the videos now
It's such a great idea
x x x

The Seeker said...

Thank you so much for this great post.
I'ven't seen the Oscars, so it was a great information.
I think Katherine Heigl was lovely.
I also think like "tala" why not more colours...
Thanks again.

Seraphine said...

Wow, if Diablo Cody looks crazy, I'd hate for someone to see what I'd wear!
Seriously though, I'd find something like Samantha Harris wore- something sexy and safe at the same time.
I'd hate to be put on someone's crazy list.

Kira Fashion said...

I really think that Heide is really the best of oscar this year and Seal, wow, so stunning as her! love that couple!


a kiss

jayne said...

wow i really like how you organized it by color, ill definitely watch the videos later!

millicent said...

anne hathaway and heidi klum were my favorites last night, but i love how sarah larson opted not to go for red/black/any solid color.

Adele said...

Marion Cotillard - deffently best dressed of the night for me!!x

bigglassesgirl said...

the wannabe angelina jolie pout/actually constipated expression miley cyrus has insisted on doing lately kills me each time. So tragic. That said, her valentino was very classic.

Leslie Ann said...

I LOVED Keri Russell's complete look. Everything complimented the next.

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

The Clothes Horse said...
I think the stars did an admirable job for the most part in pulling off runway looks on the red carpet.

Jill said...

I really liked Marion Cotillard's dress actually but I didn't like the way Tilda Swinton's dress hung on her.

SET said...

PETRA'S DRESS WAS ILLFITTING AND HER MAKEUP, HEIDI LOOKED FAB, KERI DRESS AND WAS BEAUTIFUL AND THE NECKLACE WAS A PERFECT MATCH. WHAT IS WRONG WITH TILDA?

Wendy said...

Awesome coverage! Some of the outfits looked really stunning on the celebs.

Ediot said...

such a hard pick! cameron.heidi or keri are my favourites. they all look amazing

ChiliLady said...

wow, what a entry, how long did it take you to post this?

Chic Closet said...

I thought I saw TWIGGY???? (Most recent post) Tell me I'm correct, or wrong?? :P

Kira Fashion said...

about the first post, i prefer the red carpet version of the dresses...

a kiss

Seraphine said...

It's always nice to see real people wearing designer clothes. I *love* runway shows, but really, it's the "real" person that clothes are made for.
People give the outfit personality...

Gloria said...

i know a lot of people say they love marion's dress...but i may be the only one who, upon first look, thought she looked vaguely like a serta mattress.

Dollfaced Rebel said...

I loved Heidi's Dress! It's so wonderful that she is autioning it off!

Jelenie said...

ugh Diablo Cody, put it away! And none of the dresses were really a standout this year. Over all, a really boring Oscars.

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

Cate - It's my boyfriend Chris

Chic Closet - Twiggy? maybe...I don't see her for sure...

runforthehills said...

i loved heidi klum's dress.... the collar was a winner for me...

Secretista said...

Some outfits need to remain on the runway. PERIOD.

Although, I must say I was impressed. Not a lot of faux pas.

Shopaholic D said...

i am loving that emerald green dress in the next post (where comments are disable) - not sure who it's on, but it looks great!

the off the shoulder straps and gathering are to die for!

Banana Raccoon said...

I loved Amy Adams dress. She is gorgeous.

Lorraine said...

nice blog!!!
i really do love the outfit of m. cotillard!!!!

Daphné said...

I loved Jessica Alba's dress, it really was my favorite: loved the color, the fabric, the shape!Really fab!
Anne Hathaway was stunning in that Marchesa dress too.
