Overall I think the ladies kept their looks on the safe side, and they looked very feminine and pretty. I'm going to rate five looks out of 5, and I would love to hear your opinions on the following ladies as well, some on the safe side, some that really stood out.
Pregnant in a Rodarte plum dress, Natalie Portman looked cute, but I think she could have worn something different that would have perhaps excentuated her belly a little more. The collar is lovely, but the train looks a little frumpy. The shoes and accessories all worked together nicely. I must say that I'm very happy she won for 'Actress in a Leading Role'. Well deserved, Nat. This look gets a 3.5/5 rating in my opinion.
Michelle Williams looked dazzling in this Chanel Haute Couture gown. This very simple and classic look works well with her hair and minimal amount of accessories. This look gets a 4/5 rating.
Such a unique gown that I do not think many other ladies could pull off, managed to work for Cate Blanchett. I like the pop of yellow against the delicate lilac color. Feminine and unique, I give Cate a 4.5/5 in the Givenchy Haute Couture gown.
Jennifer Lawrence (who I just found out was) played it way too safe. Sure she looks great in Calvin Klein, but it's the Oscar's and you have to show the critics something special, or you won't spark a conversation. Lovely, but too much on the safe side, gets a rating of 2.5/5.
Hailee Steinfeld in Marchesa. Look at the Salvatore Ferragamo heels on this young lady. My first thought when I saw this on the red carpet was 'Ballerina!', and it instantly reminded me of the dress Miley Cyrus wore to The Academy Awards last year. Hailee is going to have a breakout career, I can already see it coming. The ballerina bun, headband, shoes and the gown of course give this look a perfect 5/5 rating!
So there we have it, a quick recap of 5 outfits from the Oscar's. A couple others that I enjoyed were Mila Kunis and Jennifer Hudson.
Q: Did you watch the awards? I happened to only watch the first half because I got bored. I really just wanted to see Natalie Portman win an award, but I stopped watching before it happened.
Q: Who had your favorite gown? Least favorite?
Next up I'm doing an outfit of the day post from last Friday!
