But the Academy Awards isn’t only about the actual awards, it’s as much about the dresses! And this year, there were 3 colors that dominated the Red Carpet; Beige/White/Silver, Dark tones and Red. A couple of Purple tones appeared as well.
Here you see Michelle Williams, Nicole Kidman, Mandy Moore, Hillary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld, Halle Berry, Cate Blanchett and Oscar Winner Melissa Leo. I didn’t like Nicole Kidmans dress at all. It’s too stiff, and has a weird front that doesn’t do anything to enhance the dress or Nicole’s body. I think Mandy Moore’s dress is very nice, but best is Hillary Swanks Gucci gala dress with beautiful colors, metallic details and a beautiful feather skirt. Hailee Steinfeld is definitely dressed for her age, something not many young oscar nominees manage to do. And Halle Berry and Cate Blanchett also have quite nice dresses.
Oscar nominated Amy Adams, looks very nice in her dark, shiny dress with a short arm. Not typical what she usually wear, but very nice indeed! Dark tone are quite popular on most galas. Is that because it makes you look more slim? Who knows…
These ladies look great in red, matching the Red Carpet. However, I think Sandra Bullock in a Vera Wang dress and Jennifer Hudson’s Tangerine Orange dress look the best! Look at them! Gorgeous! Jennifer Lawrence look alright as well, although I don’t like the top half of her dress.
And they did it well! Look at them! I think these three women, all look stunning! Mostly Milla Kunis, in a dress from Elei Saab. She makes it look effortless. Gorgeous!
We cannot forget the men! Here are some images of the men in the suits:
I have an absolute favorite on this year’s Academy Award. Gwyneth Paltrow. Wa-wa-woom! Stunning! Her dress looks like a waterfall, dripping off her body in silver drops.
What is your favorite dress on this years Academy Awards?
I know the Academy Award just finished, but I just can’t wait to the Academy Awards 2012. =o)
