The Oscars 2011: The dresses

Michelle Williams in Chanel Haute Couture, doing what she does best simple and understated.

Absolute shining example of how to wear Givenchy Couture, Cate Blanchett is my best dressed of the night without a doubt.

Wearing custom-made Marc Bouwer, winner of Best Supporting Actress Melissa Leo looked charmingly beautiful.

Amy Adams wore a sapphire blue embellished L’Wren Scott dress, and Cartier jewels worth $1.35m!

Former Best Actress winner Sandra Bullock in a perfect red Vera Wang fishtail gown.

I do love this dress, Calvin Klein’s collection has proved to be very popular amongst a few actresses on the red carpet… NB In retrospect every time I have seen Jennifer in a red dress nothing seems to beat this hot look.

These are the dresses that stood out, as they were all intricately detailed or with bright pops of colour in a verrrrry nude sea of dresses. Not one of the better awards shows I’ve seen, but then again it’s the Oscars and they’re all about conservative, I don’t see why the attendees have to bore me though. I was hoping the exclusive Vanity Fair party would bring back some excitement, but so far I’ve seen Emma Stone with really bad hair and wearing an odd Chanel Houte Couture dress, Madonna in a leotard with some sheer bits to make her daughter less embarrassed, Cameron Diaz in an ultra-mini dress by Carolina Herrera, and Gwyneth Paltrow channeling Strictly Come Dancing with a crystal-adorned nude dress.

Out of the arrivals Selena Gomez wowed me the most, obviously her Dolce & Gabbana dress was chosen for her, but her Justin Bieber shaped arm candy easily rose plenty of eyebrows. Poor tweens, he’s taken now.

Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing party is also another big hitter for celebs, Nicole Richie was stunning in a white hot Halston dress with her husband Joel Madden, Odette Yustman was another celeb in red wearing Monique Lhuillier, and Chace Crawford and Ryan Kwanten looking too fit for words in tuxedos.
