This year we saw a lot of black and white on the Oscar red carpet, with a pop of colour (Jennifer Hudson, Sandra Bullock) here and there. Some looked effortlessly elegant (Michelle Williams), while others just oozed sex appeal (Mila Kunis, Jennifer Lawrence), but some just got it all wrong (Nicole Kidman). Here is the good, the bad, the ugly and the WTF of the 83rd Academy Awards:
BEST DRESSED: Cate Blanchett is gorgeous in this Givency Couture masterpiece. The yellow details on the dress lit up the red carpet
BEST DRESSED: Oscar winner Halle Berry dazzles in this nude Marchesa creation. Hot mama!
BEST DRESSED: This right here is my new Hollywood “it” girl. Mila Kunis went bold with this lacy Elie Saab Haute Couture dress and who can blame her with a body such as hers. Take note Hollywood leading ladies, this is how you do it
BEST DRESSED: Newcomer Jennifer Lawrence embodies total Hollywood bombshell in this scarlet Calvin Klein frock
THE GOOD: Last year’s Best Actress winner Sandra Bullock looks red hot in this Vera Wang frock. See what you’re missing out on Jesse James?!
THE GOOD: You have got to love Michelle Williams and her ability to look glam without even trying. She looks simple and elegant in this white sparkling Chanel Haute Couture gown. Not a lot of ladies can pull the short hair like Michelle can
THE GOOD: 34-year old Reese Witherspoon looks elegant in this black and white Armani Pravi dress, reminiscent of Julia Roberts’ dress the year she won her Oscar. Her hair was the most amazing of the night
THE GOOD: A heavily pregnant Natalie Portman and Best Actress winner for her role in Black Swan didn’t disappoint in this purple Rodarte evening gown
THE BAD: New mom Penelope Cruz shows off her post-pregnancy figure in this L’Wren Scott gown. While she looks hot, I’m not too fond of this dress at all, especially the colour. Husband Javier Bardem was her best accessory though
THE BAD: This Calvin Klein dress Gwyneth Paltrow wore just didn’t do her any justice. Nothing about the dress worked, from the colour to the fabric and even the cut
THE UGLY: Nicole Kidman just didn’t get it right here with this white Dior gown. The shape of the dress just didn’t complement her beautiful figure. The hair was a bit of a mess too. Quite sad, considering how she got it right when she accompanied hubby Keith Urban to the Grammys a few weeks ago
The WTF: If there was a controversial dress at the Oscars this year it has to be Jennifer Hudson in Versace. The actress/singer’s new body looks awesome and I understand wanting to flaunt it. But with weight loss, comes sagging boobs. The bottom part of the dress worked though and the pop of colour
