Yes. Like every other person on the planet, i'm going to commence gushing about a bunch of actresses and their party frocks. What do you want from me? I'm a girl who's easily distracted by sparkly objects. Besides, this year's Oscar fashions rocked it pretty hard.
My fave? Previous Best Actress winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose) in piles of black tulle and dark sequins. Can it be my wedding dress? Yes. Am i getting married? No. I might have to pull a Liz Lemon and psychotically buy this so it can double as an overpriced ham napkin.
Hit the jump for Anne, Penelope, Tina, and more.....
Tina Fey in shiny shiny Zac Posen. Definitely the most glam she's ever looked for an awards show, though she's squinting a bit here. Loved the introduction to the screenplay awards by her and Steve Martin.
Penelope Cruz in vintage Pierre Balman. As Tim Gunn noted, this dress is practically twice as old as Penelope herself. It's classic. Very old school. Very Grace Kelly.
Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive, lookin' like a mermaid. Nice!
Comedic actress and Lady Apatow, Leslie Mann, brought some heavy metal to the Oscars.
Benjamin Button's mom, Taraji P. Henson, in Cavalli. A little boring, but classy and pretty. The necklace makes it all worthwhile...though i must say i found her red carpet personality a little grating.
I love this Rodarte dress. I just don't love it on Reese Witherspoon. Darker hair, maybe...
Lanvin again, but, where Tilda and the Red Carpet meet....this is definitely an improvement. I'd never wear it, but i'm not her.
Miley Cyrus looks like Christmas. True story. Like, a snow covered fir tree. This outfit is getting slammed hardcore, but i actually think it's a good choice for the young pop tart and is a rather gorgeous gown ruined by the addition of that heinous belt. No belt? Sold.
