the oscars: red carpet 2012.

by now you've seen 8 bazillion (accurate) best and worst dressed lists from this year's academy awards, yes? so let me boil it down to a few favorites by color. 

stunning whites

{l to r: giuliana rancic in tony ward via, milla jovovich in elie saab via, gwyneth paltrow 
in tom ford via, octavia spencer in tadashi shoji via}

how'd you all feel about gwyneth's cape?!  i am on record as not a fan of hers, and that hair is sad, but the rest of this look is to die.  she knocked it out of the park, i cannot deny her that.  all of these ladies in white are workin' it.  as someone who dragged her mom to every prom-dress-selling-shop in metro detroit throughout the spring of 2002 (10 year reunion, what up?!) for a white prom dress, i consider myself an authority on white non-bridal gowns (not really), and these ladies are divine. 

striking metallics

{l to r: jessica chastain in alexander mcqueen via, stacy keibler in marchesa via, ellie kemper in armani prive via}

i would not reject any of the above :)

you might not know it from this post, but i do love me some red carpet color.  emphasis on red.  red dress, red hair.  yes, my favorite of the night was emma stone in giambattista valli.  emma was also the best part of the ceremony outside of this (which i can't stop laughing at.  i love you, jim rash aka dean pelton of community).


and yes, i do know about this, but i do not care.  so there.  ;)  who were your favorites (and not so favorites) this year?!

  1. Emma Stone's dress is to die for! And I, too, don't care that it's similar to Nicole Kidman's. Happy Tuesday!

  2. Emma's was way better that Nicole's. My favorite was Gwyneth and Michelle Williams!

  3. i loved gwyneth. and I really like giuliana's too - I feel like it's over the top, but she always dresses WAY over the top and normally I hate her red carpet choices, so I really loved hers this year.


  4. love Emma Stone too, she looks perfect!

  5. erin - i'm glad there are 2 of us!

    alex - amen! and i'm still undecided on michelle's.

    taylor - i absolutely usually hate what giuliana wears too, but she did good ere :)

    miss margarita - completely!


thanks so much for the note! i love reading your comments. xo. di.
