Here are my favourites from last night’s awards…. Enjoy!



Octavia Spencer Winner for "Best supporting actress" wearing Tadashi Shoji


Viola Davis "Best Actress Nominee" in Vera Wang - The red hair and green dress was just gorgeous on her!


This was the dress that did it for me!! Gwyneth Paltrow in Mr. Tom Ford


Ms. Esperanza Spalding's beautiful voice singing "What A Wonderful World" was truly breathtaking. Very talented young lady. The dress she wore on stage was so much nicer, still trying to find pic. Will post if I find it.


UPDATE! - Cannot find full length version of this, but it was a truly beautiful dress. Loving her statement ring!


This is my man right here! I don't know who he was wearing, but he was working it. - FYI: He helped score the telecast


Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli Couture - This pic does not really do the dress justice, but in my opinion, it was simply stunning


Roony Mara in Givenchy


Sandra's Marchesa dress hit the worst dress list, people on Twitter were evil. I loved this dress. When she walked on stage and you saw the scooped back, I thought it was gorgeous. Not every gown has to show breasts and thighs to be considered Oscar worthy.

  1. I don’t watch much tv and I’m more likely to tune into a music award as opposed to film – since music is my life! So it’s great you chose to highlight the fab fashion at the Oscars. Something about that green dress just doesn’t sit well with me 😦 I don’t want to sound awful so I’ll keep my comments about Roony’s Dress to myself. I want to love Sandra’s dress, but I don’t like how the shape of the train and I don’t know if it’s because of her posture.. OMG – something about the dress and this pose reminds me of Ursula in The Little Mermaid! Otherwise, I do like it!

    • Hi there thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your comments. I do see what you mean regarding Sandra’s dress and it could be how she’s standing. I love the little mermaid reference but I still think it’s a gorgeous dress. I don’t know if you saw the comments on Twitter but they were just awful. I am also more of a music person, after working in that industry for about 15 years, but I do like to watch the Oscars for the clothes.

  2. Pharrell, Gwyneth, Emma and Esparanza in white look stunning! Octavia also looks fabulous!

  3. I missed the Oscar’s last nite, so thanks for posting these BEAUTIFUL gowns. I loved each of your choices! Emma Stone’s gown really took my breath away, and I think Octavia Spencer looks gorgeous!

    • Thanks again for commenting. I love all of these gown and just chose to post my personal favourites. Yes there were many others out there last night, but these stood out for me.

  4. I love your first choice, it’s stunning and perfectly suits her. Also what you said about not showing thighs etc I guess the paps would love the emperor’s new clothes ! Enjoying your blog immensely thanks my friend, luv Tg x
