I just love the award nights. I love how the celebrities are all dressed up putting their best smile forward, walking on the red carpet, posing for the cameras, showing off few of the best (sometimes worst) designed dresses. And yesterday was the ‘Mother of all awards – The Academy Awards’, so how could I miss it? So, like every year this year too I woke up early to catch the show and I loved it. I loved few dance performances, Neil Patrick Harris opening performance was amazing (I love this guy) and finally and most importantly I loved few of the dresses.

So, here are my favorite and not so favorite dresses.

Sandra Bullock

It was so her night wasn’t it? She was not only one of the most gorgeous looking actresses on the red carpet but also stole the show by winning the best actress award. She looked picture perfect with the Marchesa column gown.

Demi Moore

Can anyone look at her and say that she is 47? She looks so gorgeous in Versace gown. Looking like this, she could make any young actress run for their money. I love the dress and its now one of those dream dresses of mine.

Rachel McAdams

I generally don’t like big prints but this Elie Saab number makes me think otherwise. Or then again may be it’s because of Rachel the gown is looking amazing.

Jennifer Lopez

Yeah, I have a soft corner for her and I love her! But that has nothing to do with the fact that she is looking just ‘WOW’ in this pink Armani dress. She was looking like the diva that she is. The best part of the dress is the cascading ruffles.

Cameron Diaz

Isn’t she looking fabulous in this golden Oscar de la Renta gown? I love the way she accessorized the whole dress with a diamond ring, side swept hair and her bold red lipstick and nail polish.

Penelope Cruz

This gown by Donna Karan is so so so amazing! And who better to wear it than Penelope Cruz? The nude look so totally works on her.

Now, coming to the dresses I dint much.

Kate Winslet

I absolutely hate putting her here. She is my all time favorite and also according to me a breath taking beauty. This dress by Atelier Yves Saint Lauren dint make her look like the stunning beauty that she is.

Sarah Jessica Parker

Everything about this citrus colored Chanel couture gown seems so wrong to me. There is nothing in this look that works for me.

Charlize Theron

What was she thinking wearing this lilac Christian Dior piece with rosettes on her bust? This one is a big NO NO to me.

Zoe Saldana

She wore a piece by Givenchy couture. I love the sparkling bodice and also ruffled tulle but they just don’t look good together.

Vera Farmiga

This ruffled Marchesa gown is not my cup of tea at all. Its way too much ruffled.

Out of all the men I think Jake Gyllenhaal and Bradley Cooper looked Awesome.

I generally love anything that George Clooney wears but the hair was not something I liked.

Whom did you guys like and dislike?

PS – I know this is kinda late but i wrote this as soon as i saw the show but couldn’t find perfect pictures. So had to wait :(.

  1. for me, Demi Moore took the show…she is looking stunning in that dress..and Rachel McAdam’s dress is awesome…I prefer a bit casual looking outfit than the complete formal gown.. 🙂

    Sarah Jessica Parker – ewwwww

  2. cameron diaz dress was the best!
    i missed watching oscars this time hope i can cath it later…


  3. I am a little biased here. I absolutely adore Penelope. So I will pick here even if the others looked as gorgeous as ever! 😀 I hated the dresses of all the people you mentioned in the ‘dislike’ category, but the Pink Ruffled one — boy o boy o boy! Outta words to describe that one :O :O

  4. I’m so in love with Bradley Cooper.

  5. For me, Diaz and Cruz were the real stunners. Lopez looked the Diva that she is. It is ‘in’ her, no matter what she does. And Bullock looked like the winner that night. I Loved it when she said, “Did I really deserve this or did I dress you all down?”

    Theron, Like seriously, what was she thinking with those extra weird whatever stuck there? Love the Oscars for the Red Carpet. The awards are too boring. I might as well read the list later than going through a three hour TV run time.


  6. demi moore!!!! she looks so gorgeous! i like rachel mc adams’ gown very much too.. she’s carrying it really well

    nice post 🙂

  7. I never liked the award nights.. maybe I don’t have the patience to sit through all the talk and walk..

    Kate looks so good 😀 😀

  8. oh i’m feeling so lost here…u sure do know your dresses well!

    i did catch the re-run of the awards that same night but i wasn’t paying much attention 2 the clothes.

    so just based on the snaps here…i would say cameron diaz n JLo look stunning 😀

  9. Mmmmmmmmmmm. Bradley Cooper.

    Yes please.

  10. Sandra Bullock and Demi More looked like goddess:) Bradley Cooper i heart 🙂

  11. Its Demi Moore all the way…No competition. I’m now so in love with that dress.

  12. And You’ve been tagged. Pls visit my page.

  14. Loved your post….and the awesome dresses…
    And….your choices seem to be very similar to mine. Sarah Jessica Parker was a real disappointment….And J-Lo, Demi Moore and Cruz were truly stunning…
    Bradley cooper….HAWT HAWT HAWT!!

  15. Hey there! Thanks for visiting my blog and boy is this a post I would have loads to comment on! 😛 😀

    Out of all the good ones up here I liked Diaz the best. Hot all the way!
    LOVE sexy chic Cruz’s dress color! its so W-O-W!
    Sandra Bullock looked like she was there to pick up the oscars. LOVE the hair, minor complaint though – HATE the lipstick! 😛
    Moore looks so fab even at that age, and that dress makes her looks so so so awesome that she totally deserves to me on that list!
    You missed Elizabeth Banks in her sexy Versace number and Helen Mirren in the dreamy Badgley Mischka that says “Old women look spectacular too!” on this list though 🙂
    I have ALWAYS admired JLo ever since that famous day she walked into the academy awards wearing that famous Versace green gown.. But this year – too much and too cliched! Didnt like it one bit! 😐

    One of my another all time fav red carpet dresses has been Halle Berry’s 2002 Elie Saab, Hilary Swank’s 2005 navy Guy Laroche and Audrey Hepburn’s 1954 Givenchy gown. All simply stunning!

    About the bad ones… omg what were they ALL thinking?! ewwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!! 😐

    Missed Ryan Reynolds on this list – he looked sinful!! 😛

    Looks like Ill be haunting your place sometime soon 🙂
