While everyone else watched last night’s Oscars to see who would get to twalk away with one of the coveted golden statues, I couldn’t wait to feast my eyes on more red carpet fashion! Pastels and metallics seemed to reign supreme with very few bursts of color. Here are my picks for the best, the worst and those who almost made it!

The Best

oscarbest2Charlize Theron wow’d me with her look. It wasn’t just the dress, which complemented her body perfectly even though I got a bride-to-be vibe with all the white, but the whole package. Her hair cut which she admitted is a result of a buzz cut for an upcoming film, made me miss my short ‘do! They always say some people have a face for short hair and luvs, she’s got it!

oscarbest3Naomi Watts, I.died! I l-o-v-e the unique neckline here and her Armani Prive dress was one of the only ones that made my eyes pop open in delight. The dress? The hair?? Love & love!

oscarbest0Jane Fonda completely slaaaaayed in this yellow number! Love the color and gold detailing here, and did you see the back cutout!? She’s just way to fierce to be 75! 85th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsHalle stunned me in this Versace number! You all can’t tell me that this dress isn’t perfect for her. The color, the fit, everything; I love it! And I’m SO glad that Halle is maintaining the short hair!

oscarbest1Amy Adams’ Oscar de la Renta dress was absolutely stunning! I don’t think I need to say anything else here, so I won’t. Amaze!

85th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsKelly Rowland once again caught my eye in this black & white stunner! She may not be an actress but she definitely left her mark on last night’s red carpet. This dress has the perfect balance of classiness and sex appeal and I love it!

The Worst

oscarworst0Oh Anne. Anne, Anne, Anne. I love Anne Hathaway, but I hate this choice. From the color, to the 1999 neckline a la She’s All Thatshesallthis choice was just all wrong. Anne, who made a last minute choice to go with this frock from Dior instead of her original selection, said this dress spoke to her. I just wonder what it said.

85th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsIt isn’t even the dress that I hate in the case of actress Melissa McCarthy(I actually think it’s a great choice on her). It’s all about that tragic hair! Too much teasing and too much hairspray left the hilarious Melissa looking like the butt of one of her own jokes.

oscarworstIt’s not that I don’t like Jennifer’s Valentino dress; I do like it very much as a matter of fact, but she totally bored me. Her hair was limp and added nothing here. It’s like she refuses to stun us. Come on Jennifer, give us more!

The Almost There

oscaralmost0Can I just say that the color on Jennifer Garner’s custom Gucci gown is absolutely stunning! I’ve got a secret obsession with purple, and this hue is just the perfect pop! The long train of ruffles on the other hand did this look in for me. Maybe if they didn’t start so high up, they would have been less overwhelming.

oscaralmostWho doesn’t love Jennifer Lawrence?? Young Hollywood’s latest “it girl” is witty, cute and one hell of an actress. I loved the baby pink color on her Christian Dior Couture dress but she honestly looks like she’s sitting on top of a cupcake. There was just a little too much volume at the bottom for me and apparently for her as she tripped up the steps on her way to collect her first Oscar. Oops!

Who were your picks for best & worst dressed from last night’s ceremony?
