At the end of the Red Carpet - Oscars Wrap-up!

So, what did you think?  I thought the Oscars provided everything it promises - glitz, glamour, stars and fabulousness.  The red carped sparkled with some of the most dazzling dresses we will see all year. While several trends emerged, for the most part, stars stuck to opposite ends of the color specturm - vibrant, brilliant color or flesh-toned sophistication. Here were a few of our favorites!

Electrifying color! -

Jennifer Hudson in Atelier Versace - She is seriously working that new body! Love it!

Jennifer Lawrence in Calvin Klein - Minimalist chic with a punch of color

Sandra Bullock in Vera Wang  - After a minor style snafu at the Globes (those bangs, ugh!) She's back!!

Anne Hathaway in Valentino Haute Couture - One of my favorite gowns of the evening. And LOVE the lips!

Flesh-toned beauties

Halle Berry in Marchesa - Serious hotness and elegance. Halle strikes again!

Michelle Williams in Chanel Haute Couture - Sophisticated and beautiful

Hailee Steinfeld in Marchesa - This girl seriously knows how to dress.  I hope to continue to see her on red carpets for years to come!

Hilary Swank in Gucci Premiere - Feathers and beading...hello Oscars!

Mandy Moore in Monique Lhullier - Sheer elegance

Nicole Kidman - Marchesa (I'm just OK with the dress but j'adore the red pumps!)
 Berry-liscious!  Tones of purple were also hugely present on the red carpet.

Scarlet Johansson in Dolce and Gabbana - I'm not sure...from some angles I love, from others, not so much

Natalie Portman in Rodarte - I much prefer this look to her pink Globes gown, don't you?

Mila Kunis in Elie Saab Couture - She already won our "best dressed" at the SAG and she's giving some serious competition for this "best dressed" as well!
Penelope Cruz - L'Wren Scott (Can you believe she just had a baby a few weeks ago? Crazy!)
And, the winner is....Cate Blanchett in Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci!!  This light lilac gown is certainly not the easiest for a star to wear. There is no glitter, no train, no slit or decollette.  What this gown does have is excellent style and complete elegance.  This is a dress that only the great Cate could pull off.  Her soft hair and makeup are in stark contrast to the proportions of the sharp shoulders creating a perfect contradiction.  I am absolutely awe-struck! This dress is certain to become an icon in Oscar's red carpet history.
