2012 Oscars: My 10 Picks For Best Dressed

I wasn’t going to let a little trip to Australia stop me from sharing my top fashion picks at this year’s Oscars. PS. How shocked are you that Meryl Streep won Best Actress? When the Oscar nominations were announced, I predicted that the Best Actress category was the one ripe for an upset. Guess I was right after all. Congrats to Queen Meryl, but I do feel badly for Viola who was the frontrunner. She was also fantastic in her role. Why couldn’t there been a tie?

Typically on Homorazzi.com, my posts, though popular (wink), don’t illicit as much controversy as Tyrell and Nic‘s Rihanna and Chris Brown posts, nor Adam‘s “Married Men” type posts. The closest thing I ever get to people yelling at me is my Award fashion posts. I’m sure a few of my choices will continue that trend. Hope you enjoy my fashion highlights.

My Favorite 10 Dresses @ The 2012 Oscars

Michelle Williams

Only an actress as cute as Michelle Williams could’ve pulled off this Louis Vuitton dress. Loved her choice of going with the color coral. She definitely walks to the beat of her own fashion drum.

Jennifer Lopez

Lopez better flaunt it while she has it. In a couple of years, this plunging Zuhair Murad sheer dress would definitely be age inappropriate. Her rumored nip slip inspired the Twitter handle, JLosNipple, with the first tweet “Did You See Me?”. Are you following her nip?

Emma Stone

All I want for Christmas is Emma Stone in this red Giambattista Valli gown. The bow could be too much, but Stone pulls it off.

Milla Jovovich

In a sea of white dresses on the red carpet, Milla Jovovich stood out like a supernova in this sparkling Elie Saab gown.

Viola Davis

She may have lost out to Meryl for Best Actress, but Davis beats her handily in the all-important fashion battle with this green Vera Wang. Loved the gorgeous detail on the bottom. Bravo also for ditching the wig and weave.

Stacy Keilber

Stacy’s role was simple. Be stunning arm candy for George Clooney. Done and done. This gold Grecian-style Marchesa creation with rose detail could’ve been cheesy but Keibler pulled it off. Clooney didn’t need to win the Oscar, he had his own life-sized trophy to hold onto.

Cameron Diaz

Loved the nude Gucci gown, but hated Cameron’s hair. It’s a little too beach-y for my liking.

Jessica Chastain

Here’s another actress who had a great dress but screwed up with the hairstyle. This black and gold embroidered Alexander McQueen would’ve been better served with an updo.

Rooney Mara

Rooney was another woman dressed in white that stood out. This art deco-inspired white Givenchy was a masterpiece.

Angelina Jolie

It’s simple and black. In other words, it’s classic Jolie. If it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it. After, IMHO, her misstep at the Golden Globes in that white and red gown, I’m happy she chose this Atelier Versace.

On The Fence

Glenn Close & Gwyneth Paltrow

There are aspects of both of these dresses I liked, and some I didn’t like. Since I was on the fence with both of them, I decided to pit these two actresses together since they both wore jackets on the red carpet. Palrow’s Tom Ford gown featured clean cut lines and a cape detail, while Close opted for a green Zac Posen design. Personally, I liked Glenn’s choice more. On a side note, doesn’t Gwyneth look like a younger Helen Mirren in that outfit?

Now that I’ve shared my top picks, I’d love to hear yours. Post all your favorite fashion moments from last night.

  • Athan

    I’m no fashionista but Angelina, Viola, Emma, and Cameron (styling not dress) all were awful. Sandra Bullock totally outshines Emma Stone. And Viola’s gown, the way her boobs were pushed together and ready to pop out? Not elegant. Tina Fey’s black Carolina Herrera dress hands down beat Angie. Not to mention Angie looked skeletal in hers. While her right thigh is juicy, those arms were like wet strings. And ps I believe her leg twitter handle is @AngiesRightLeg.

  • Aqua

    Milla Jojowich Rocks.. She is slaying all the bitches on the red carpet.

  • xtino

    ? Milla ? Rooney

  • Jeremy

    definitely Angelina looks so beautiful in that dress, sexy and glamourus too. I love her!

  • Brian

    Totally agree with Athan. I thought J Lo & Milla looked fabulous!

  • I totally thought for a second that Alexandria from Top Model broke in to the Oscars when I saw the Cameron Diaz picture.

  • Stephen

    Am I the only one who realised that Emma Stone’s dress looked like the twin of Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga Oscar dress from 2007? Google it!

  • GregSD

    Gwyneth was my favorite of the night, but since she wasn’t included in your top 10, I voted for Milla – she looked stunning.
    I’m a bit surprised by all of the Jolie-love. The dress is fine, but fairly standard. The posing was ridiculous, and her arms are scary skinny. Not that I want her to have Madonna arms, but Angelina looks like a stiff wind might break her in two. Eat something Angie!

  • KC

    I can’t believe you did not include Penelope Cruz!! I thought she was the most stunning of all the women there by far!

  • Tony

    @Stephen–I was thinking the same thing…I had to take a double take, as I thought it was Nicole Kidman again. Emma Stone was gorgeous in that similar dress.

    My best dressed has to go to Milla. Stunning!

  • Rick

    You have a great eye for women’s fashion. I don’t get the Jessica Chastain thing, though. My fav’s were Stacey & Gwyneth.

  • Jaykumar B

    Jessica Chastain is stunning. so is Angelina..

  • maximreed

    stacey, jennifer, angelina, rooney and jessica were all amazing!
    but the best one is definitely milla!!! by far!
    glenn rocked the jacket, while gwyneth is a no-no in my opinion.
    what about alexandra lamy and berenice bejo? my two french girls. weren’t they beautiful as well. not worthy of a top ten for sure but still. 🙂

  • Zlatan’s Girl

    Uh, why is Gwyneth not in top 10?
    She was sublime last night and that cape, although it’s admittedly over the top; it was brilliant.

    Chastain’s dress reminded me too much like a tacky rug, and I don’t think JLO’s Zuhair Murad dress fits her perfectly. Diaz is so basic tbh. And Keibler… is a mess.

  • Jepoy

    Gwyneth looked like a young MAGNETO here.
