2011 Oscars: Red Carpet

Let's be honest, this year's Oscars was a total travesty.

James Franco seemed to be high, Anne Hathaway's overcompensating laughs and wild arm gestures were pathetic, and the show (minus the bit with Russell Brand and Helen Mirren) left me feeling slightly embarrassed and extremely uncomfortable. 

The good news is that there was fashion, and lots of it!

Starting with Ms. Anne Hathaway (aka. the fabulous Rachel Zoe) who had 7 outfits, in addition to her red carpet arrival gown:

I love this look - from the high ponytail to the big bowtie, she made the tux look great:


Eh - also, the hair is hideous, but my sisters and I agreed that it was prep for future looks:

Vivienne Westwood

Fantastic color, not sure about the cut:

Armani Prive

Yes, yes, yes:

Atelier Versace

Looks better in this photo than it did on stage:

Tom Ford

I think this was my favorite:

Oscar de la Renta

. . . until she ruined it by acting like a clown on stage:

Now, on to the red carpet!

(Best Of: Top 9)

#1. Simple perfection

#2. Modern chic

Calvin Klein
3. Youthful simplicity (and major hotness)

Calvin Klein
4. Youthful elegance

5. Couture (Done Right)

Givenchy Couture
6. Sexy and elegant

Elie Saab
7. Beautiful and Oscars-appropriate

8. Age-appropriate stunner

Armani Prive
9. One classy dame

Vivienne Westwood

(Worst Of: Bottom 9)

Atrocious bodice, hideous skirt, mismatched shoes (but I love the Fred Leighton diamond choker):

Christian Dior

I do not like this at all, but I think it is because of the hair is all wrong, the lipstick color is awful, and Mandy Moore is wearing it:

Monique Lhuillier
Cupcake, n'est-ce pas?

Collette Dinnigan

I think the proportions are off(?):


Romona Keveza

Not cute:

The color is too flashy for me:

Straight fug (I don't care how vintage it is):

Vintage 1950's Charles James Couture

(Not Bad)

You knew you were going to win the Oscar, you could have turned up the glam a 'lil bit (nice color though):


I like the color contrasting, but I dislike the neckline and sleeves:

L'Wren Scott

Dolce & Gabbana
Ill-fitting and event-inappropriate:

Marc Bouwer
Not bad:

Naeem Khan

A little plain, but she's too gorgeous to be too critical of:

Pros: Hair (loves it!), make up
Cons: Dress

Armani Prive

Young and fresh:

Kaufman Franco

Yum . . . long-sleeve and velvet:

Johanna Johnson

Same Old, Same Old

Yes, we know you like to wear red lips and red dresses, but you are way too pale, hon:

Vintage Valentino

Too plain:

Vera Wang

Too much:


Absolutely gorgeous gown, but it is the same look all the time (and needs more jewels):


At least this dress was not as crazy as some others:

Colleen Atwood

. . . although the craziness of the lady inside the dress is still same (and we love her for it).


(Done Right)

Extremely hot:

Gucci and L'Wren Scott

Love them!

See?  Being fully-clothed is a good thing, you guys:

Dolce & Gabbana and Kaufman Franco

Look at how hot my wife and toupée are - YEAH!

(Gone Wrong)

Yes, this is Hugh Jackman's wife and, yes, she is wearing pants:


Blech to the dress,Marky Mark looks cute though:

Naeem Kahn and Giorgio Armani



The dress is hideous, albeit environmentally friendly; he is adorable as ever:

A recycled dress and Tom Ford

Your father may be Steven Spielberg and your dress may be Lanvin, but you need a new hairstylist, accessories, and a tailor:


Now it is time for the men:



(Done Right)

Tom Ford

Louis Vuitton

Very classic:

(Gone Wrong)

Not of a fan of the pocket square:

Dark Gray (Done Right)

Band of Outsiders


(Done Right)

(Gone Wrong)

Can you please try a little harder, Mr. Katy Perry? This is the Oscars.
