Oscars 2012 - who wore what


God, the Oscars are exhausting. You spend the entire day predicting dresses, the entire night watching the show and the day after trawling through the internet and glued to the tv, obsessing over who wore what. I can feel my brain throbbing through my skull.

Best Dressed

Rooney Mara in Givenchy 
It looks like an angel descended from couture heaven. Mara's androgynous look and severe blunt haircut are perfectly complemented and softened by the feminine silhouette of the dress. The white lace is celestial against her alabaster skin. She is flawless. I'm in love.

Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford.
Gwyneth, on the other hand, looks like a couture superhero descended from above to fight crimes against fashion. The simple column dress and cape is elegant on her slender frame and still had a dramatic impact on the red carpet. With uncomplicated hair and limited jewellery, Paltrow proves that minimalism doesn't have to mean boring.

 Angelina Jolie and her leg in Atelier Versace
Her ridiculous leg pose may have stolen the show but Angie still looked like a goddess in her black velvet gown. With no bag, no jewellery and loosely tousled bedroom hair, the actress is effortless; a real red-carpet pro.

 Penelope Cruz in Armani Prive
Like the Spanish Grace Kelly, the actress epitomised old Hollywood glamour in her powder blue, off the shoulder ball-gown. Some deemed it Oscar dressing 101 and said that Cruz looked dated, however I think the classic shape and charming colour looked refined.

 Claire Danes in Valentino pre-fall
Danes opted for the night's most daring look with this pepto-pink dress at the Vanity Fair afterparty. With a lace top, sweetheart bodice and ruffled skirt, the dress risked being overly fussy but with dressed down hair and a matching lip, the striking creation became serene and romantic.

Worst Dressed

Natalie Portman in vintage Dior
Did your mummy pick this out for you? Natalie Portman looks clumsy and cheap in this dress with mis-matched accessories and flat hair. Boo.


Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton
Alot of people loved Michelle in this tiered, red dress but I think she looked lost and uneasy. It's a just a bit bland and disappointing compared to that stunning canary Vera Wang gown from a few years back. 

 Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad
Put it away, for God's sake.
