Haute Off the Red Carpet: 79th Annual Academy Awards

It’s called the ‘Superbowl’ for women – the Academy Awards, or Oscars. I usually watch the show in bits and pieces. I really just like to see who wins Best Supporting Actor/Actress, Best Actor/Actress, and Best Picture. But my favorite part is the red carpet – getting to see who’s wearing who, and what. Here’s my Oscar hits and misses:

Let’s start with everyone’s favorite new ‘It’ girl, and now Academy Award winner (!) Jennifer Hudson. She looked fabulous in a chocolate Oscar de la Renta gown created exclusively for her. I love the metallic python/leather shrug – everyone’s going to want one of those…

I certainly do… And I want her makeup artist too.
Dreamgirls co-star, Anika Noni Rose, took a page from Beyonce’s standard red carpet book, with a shiny silver dress, complete with a plunging neckline:
And plunging backline:

Eddie Murphy’s date, Tracey Edmonds, wore a dazzling grey gown.

Jodie Foster looked great in a draped blue chiffon dress:

Queen Latifah looked haute in basic black:

Jenny from the block (Jennifer Lopez) looked fabulous in this Grecian goddess gown. I love dresses with ‘built in’ jewelry. Gorgeous.

Academy Award winner Rachel Wesiz looked incredible in this subtle strapless gold dress. The diamond accents were beautiful.

Even Joan and Melissa Rivers looked nice. Well, their dresses did anyway…
Jessica Biel looked chic in a hot pink, back baring gown.
Jada Pinkett-Smith chose a great mustard-gold gown that flattered her bronze skin.

And she rocked a haute VBH Envelope Clutch:
Cate Blanchett could have used a bit of bronzer or self-tanner but looked gorgeous in her understated grey gown, nevertheless.
Maggie Gyllenhaal could have taken a trip to Sephora along with Cate, but her navy and black gown was also gorgeous.
‘Little Miss Sunshine’ star Abigail Breslin looked absolutely adorable in this dress that resembled a basket of flowers.Cute!

Penelope Cruz rocked a haute ruched and ruffled pink gown with a train.
Her clutch was haute too:
Beyonce strayed away from her usual ‘look at me!’ dresses and opted for a softer, less alluring gown.

Gwyneth looked great as usual…Haute.

Celine Dion also looked haute in an emerald green gown:
John Travolta’s wife, Kelly Preston, was almsot unrecognizable in this skintight leopard-print dress.

Skinny was definitely in this year. Portia de Rossi looked like she could use a Big Mac:

But I liked the back of the dress…And is it just me, or does Reese seem to be getting thinner and thinner? Great gown though.
BFF’s Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts looked great in bright summer colors.
Miranda Priestly Meryl Streep could have borrowed a better outfit from ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ closet.
So could have Anne Hathaway:
Cameron could have done better. Her dress was pretty hideous:

Ditto for the bag… And Best actor nominee Forest Whittaker’s wife Keisha looked great….until she turned around.
I don’t know happened here…

Faye Dunaway looked like a birthday cake gone bad:
Oh Kirsten….I have no words.

And I guess having a rich father doesn’t ensure a great red carpet gown…
Like father, like daughter.(Quincy and Rashida Jones)
