My top three dresses this year:
1. Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé
Florals were definitely a theme last night, but Cate Blanchett upped the ante in her pale green confection. She even had gorgeous, dazzling feather-shaped earrings to cap off the look. I adored the whole ensemble.
2. Naomi Watts in Armani Privé
Naomi Watts enjoys high-wattage looks (pun intended), and the 88th Oscars were no exception. I found myself drawn to this dress for its unique color combination (purple and blue) and intricate design. Although ombre is a bit "out" at the moment, the dress dazzled, but still let Naomi shine. She did her hair (down) and makeup (red lip) just right.
3. Saoirse Ronan in Calvin Klein
The emerald color alone was enough to grab my attention. Although I felt the dress was a little mature for the young actress (low cut in front, open in the back), the dress was sexy in such a chic way, it didn't matter. Plus, the actress is Irish. It was a perfect color pick.
From Tinsel Town to Gilstrap Lane...
Although Sly Stallone didn't win in the Best Supporting Actor category, I still wore a tiger print dress today.
