Best dressed ladies at the 81st Annual Academy Awards

23 Feb

Angelina Jolie could do no wrong in a sweetheart neckline strapless black Elie Saab gown accessorized with emerald earrings and ring from Loraine Schwartz. The outfit is so simple but the drapping of the dress makes it so much more. Angelina’s choice of not wearing a necklace made the outfit even more delicate.

America’s sweetheart, Anne Hathaway, went for glitz and glamour in a beaded cream Armani Prive gown. The small earrings and tennis bracelet was all Anne needed to complete this outfit.

Love it or hate it, I think Marissa Tomei’s choice of the Versace gown with architectural sculpting detail was perfect for this brunette. Marissa looked as though she was floating in a pool of water. She also gets the nod for effectively wearing the one shoulder look. Kate Winslet’s dress was too over the top and did not do her justice. The strap was was too big and made her look even more busty than usual. Natalie Portman could do no wrong in lavender Rodarte strapless number.

The best part of the night was during Penelope’s speech, when the actress asked if anyone had ever fainted on stage. I am sure the oodles and oodles of taffeta on her gown would have broken her fall. The actress made history last night as the first Spanish actress to snag the best supporting actress award. The Vicki, Cristina, Barcelona starlet wore a stunning vintage cream Balmain gown and accessorized it with $3 million worth of jewels. The actress said she had fallen in love with the gown eight years ago in a shop window and knew this was what she wanted to wear for the night. She went back to the store and it was still there. I guess it’s true what they say, “If it’s meant to be, it will be there.”
