Best-Dressed List: 2012 Academy Awards

The 84th Annual Academy Awards sparkled and dazzled and it was not from the gold statue few lucky actors received. It was from all the jewels and straight-off-the-runway designer gowns the best of Hollywood showcased on Sunday night! Although a surprisingly underwhelming red carpet with few stand-out dresses, it is always fun to daydream about what I would look like on that carpet and in those thousand dollars gowns and million dollar jewels. Nonetheless, here is a peek of my best-dressed of the night!

Octavia Spencer

How more perfect could this night get for her? She took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Help and looked absolutely stunning on the red carpet. After keeping her promise that she would stay true to designer Tadashi Shoji throughout award season, she did not disappoint in this beautiful pale-gold beaded number that she accessorized with a Judith Leiber clutch and Neil Lane diamonds. This dress fit her perfectly and her hair and makeup made her look elegant and statuesque for her big night!

Rose Byrne 

The Bridesmaids beauty truly sparkled in a fully sequined, one shoulder Vivienne Westwood gown. The midnight blue (although looks like black in the picture) color looked perfect on the carpet and Byrne topped off this look with Jimmy Choo platforms! Well done, Rose!

Jessica Chastain

The Help star looked radiant in a hand-embroidered Alexander McQueen gown. This was a usual choice for The Oscars but the risk paid off. The combination of her hair style and makeup was a perfect choice and she sparkled in $2 million worth of Harry Winston diamonds. She even had to have a bodyguard with her to protect those diamonds. Can you imagine?

Angelina Jolie

This may look simple at first glance, but there is more to meet the eye in this black velvet Atelier Versace gown that Angelina donned on the red carpet. She kept it simple with natural hair and a red lip. She accessorized her gown with Neil Lane jewels and Salvatore Ferragamo peep-toe pumps. And of course, her best accessory, Brad Pitt!

Stacy Keibler

George Clooney’s lucky woman wore an incredible metallic gold Marchesa dress that may have been my favorite dress of the night. She looked glamorous with her old Hollywood hair and simple makeup. She matched her dress with Judith Leiber clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Cameron Diaz

Although the star was not nominated, she looked great on the red carpet in this gorgeous Gucci gown and donned Tiffany & Co. jewels! With shimmery metallic’s down the bottom of her dress, she kept it simple, but elegant!

Jennifer Lopez

This woman can do no wrong. And she can never look bad. JLO sparkled on the red carpet in a plunging Zuhair Murad metallic gown. The form-fitting gown looked perfect on her body and with her hair back and signature makeup, she looked like perfection. If only we could all just look like Jenny from the block!

Milla Jovovich 

Milla made a stunning entrance in one of my FAVORITE Hollywood designers, Elie Saab. The shimmering white was gorgeous and she looked nothing short of glamorous on the carpet. One of my absolute favorites of the night!

  • Rose Byrne needs a sandwich bad. Maybe two of them. Luv your Blog!!
