2011 Oscars: Best Dressed

So with a hectic week of exams and a busy Spring Break schedule (Miami and Orlando!), I fell a little behind with my blogging. This post is over a week late, but I still wanted to share my thoughts on the fashion at the Academy Awards since it is THE red carpet event of the season. 
#1 – Natalie Portman – Rodarte
The soon-to-be mother and well-deserved Best Actress winner looked radiant in this gorgeous, deep purple gown which perfectly complimented her skin tone.
#2 – Anne Hathaway – Atelier Versace
This gown with its fitted and embroidered bodice was my favorite of Anne’s many wardrobe changes. I also loved the red strapless Valentino gown she wore on the red carpet. Kudos to her stylist Rachel Zoe.
#3 – Mila Kunis – Elie Saab Haute Couture
Some critics thought the color washed her out, but I disagree. I think the color and gown look lovely on her. 
#4 – Mandy Moore – Monique Lhuiller
Mandy was the epitome of elegance and sophistication in this sparkling nude gown.
#5 – Gwyneth Paltrow – Calvin Klein
Gwyneth looked stunning in this chic metallic gown, complete with effortlessly slick-straight hair.
#5 – Hilary Swank – Gucci Premiere
The two-time Oscar winner exuded glamour in this silver embellished gown. Usually, I’m not a fan of anything with feathers but here it works.
#6 – Hailee Steinfeld – Marchesa
I love it when young stars dress their age, and Hailee’s fashion choices have really been a breath of fresh air. She looked incredibly youthful and still ladylike in this custom-made tea-length dress.
#8 – Helen Mirren – Vivienne Westwood
Speaking of dressing well for their age, nobody does it better than Helen Mirren. She always gets its right. Simply classy.
#9 – Jennifer Hudson – Versace
Jennifer wowed everyone in this stunning orange halter gown which showed off her new toned figure.
#10 – Reese Witherspoon – Giorgio Armani Prive
Although not the most innovative design, the simple and classic black and white gown nonetheless looked stunning on the former Oscar winner.
