As I mentioned on my personal Facebook page yesterday, it’s kind of pathetic how happy red carpets make me. I don’t know if it’s the glitz and glam or the chance to see all my favorites in one spot, but I look forward to awards season the way others look forward to the Olympics or major sports games. Although the show itself can drag at times (Ellen did a great job this year – I loved the pizza party!), the red carpet never disappoints.
These were 6 of my favorite gowns of the night (although there were quite a few stunners): Olivia Wilde. Despite being pregnant, this woman looks FABULOUS. Her dress would have been gorgeous on anyone, not just for those growing another human being, which I appreciate (unlike Kerry Washington’s). Add the little touches like the bow neck and white stripe, and it just made it that much more special. Anne Hathaway. Slinky, elegant and just edgy enough. Although everyone finds her annoying, I still adore this girl, her style and talent. Naomi Watts. There was just something so feminine and classic about this white beauty. Together with the beautiful diamond necklace and killer clutch, it was flawless – much like Ms. Naomi. Idina Menzel. Sure, you can consider this one a little safe, but I adored the shade of deep forest green against Idina’s complexion and dark tresses (although I would have preferred her hair in an updo) and how it hugged her figure. And those diamonds! Perfect. Kristin Chenoweth. She looked like an Oscar statue! It was metallic, structured, graphic and completely appropriate for the event. Charlize Theron. The ultimate goddess. I loved the illusion straps, the silhouette and the slightly gothic train. It was just one of those dresses that stops you in your tracks.
