    Absolutely Rachel McAdams <3

  2. Ev March 8, 2010 at 19:26 #

    I fell in love with Rachel’s look the first second I saw it. She was unbelievably beautiful. All three – Cameron, Maggie and Anna – are my close second.
    At the beginning I actually favoured Zoe in Givenchy, but now I don’t like it at all (especially the hem of her dress).

  3. cd March 8, 2010 at 19:25 #

    okay so i for-fitted voting as it was between sandra, meryl, zoe, sjp & j-lo
    too difficult FC! this year was better than last year though, no?

  4. Victoria March 8, 2010 at 19:20 #

    Really hard to choose! Anna looked so pretty, Sandra’s look is amazing and I loved Cameron as well. 🙂 But I had to give it to Zoe Saldana. 😀 Seriously, just for daring to wear that amazing gown makes her deserve best dressed. 🙂

    On another note, so sad that Anne Hathaway wasn’t at the Oscars! 🙁 I was looking forward to seeing what she would wear.

  5. Katherine March 8, 2010 at 19:00 #

    what about Miley Cyrus? i know your not her biggest fan…but she looked fantastic last night in her champagne gown

  6. Gaber March 8, 2010 at 18:40 #

    I adored Diane, but out of the girls listed here – I’m going with Maggie.

  7. ZzaRaZza March 8, 2010 at 18:37 #

    I gave it to Cameron ’cause she hasn’t looked that gorgeous in quite a while

  8. Louisa March 8, 2010 at 18:35 #

    ahhhh this was SO HARD! i voted for zoe but i rachel, meryl, maggie and sandra were all close seconds for me.

  9. FashionLover March 8, 2010 at 18:28 #

    For me,as much as i love bling,I found the softer looks more beautiful,I loved Sarah Jessica Parker,Rachel McAdams ,Meryl Streep, and Zoe Sadalana
    the Chanel is growing on me second after second,I cannot stop loving how different it is for such an event,where others went for elaborate gowns, and Sarah Jessica Parker’s Hair was just lovely,okay now im lusting! lol
    I am just falling out of love with Sandra Bulock’s look,I dunno ,the gown is exquisite but the makeup looks really forced and makes her look a bit aged

  10. anne March 8, 2010 at 18:25 #


  11. Eve March 8, 2010 at 18:19 #

    i think nicole richie should have been in that list. she has a totally different look than the rest and originality should be rewarded. it is not your average princess dress we generally see at the oscars. the same could be said for maggie gylenhall who pushes the enveloppe and wins!

  12. Natasa March 8, 2010 at 18:18 #

    My favourite dress by Givenchy, Zoe Saldana so beutiful looking in this dress. But I am pity that all dresses is very long and we not can see shoes.

  13. Leo March 8, 2010 at 18:13 #

    Meryl made me fall in love with her one more time. Loving it even more the more I see it.

  14. Dana March 8, 2010 at 18:08 #

    #1 – Rachel
    #2 – Cameron

  15. justme March 8, 2010 at 18:07 #

    Even though the dress matches her skin tone a little too much for my liking, I gave it to Anna. That dress is so goddess like, Elie did it again.

  16. TMCFS March 8, 2010 at 18:00 #

    This is a tough one. I’d vote for the Armani Prive dress that JLo wore, only if she wasn’t wearing it. Anybody else would have looked great in it. She looks good, but doesn’t quite work it. Rachel’s dress was more springy than red carpet worthy. My vote goes to Sandra. The hair, the make up, the clutch… everything looked great. The lipstick prevented a wash-out look.

  17. Leonorah alexis March 8, 2010 at 17:39 #

    It has to go to SJP effortless style, but JLO looked like her body was made for that dress. however all in all very difficult selection they all looked flawless

  18. stilettolover91 March 8, 2010 at 17:34 #

    again u didn’t even feature mariah carey…. what’s with ur hate towards her huh???

  19. Symon March 8, 2010 at 17:32 #

    My top 5 :

    Zoé Saldana
    Sarah Jessica Parker
    Cameron Diaz
    Meryl Streep

    • Symon March 9, 2010 at 07:14 #

      MY top 5 LOL there is only 4 women XD

  20. danielezka March 8, 2010 at 17:32 #

    i loved Giuliana Rancic’s Pamela Rollad gold gown. She wore it for the pre-show. she looked stunning.

  21. Lauren March 8, 2010 at 17:30 #

    Hmm I’ll vote for Cameron, the dress is stunning!
    I dont know but I think Miley deserves to be on the list, since she was beautiful & we havent really seen on the Red Carpet looking beautiful for a long time so yeah..
    But still the list above is pretty good 😀

  22. Zoé March 8, 2010 at 17:29 #

    Must say, I am seriously torn! All off these ladies looked stunning. My favourites are Rachel McAdams, Sandra Bullock, Meryl Streep, Zoe Saldana and Cameron Diaz.

    In the end I gave my vote to Sandra Bullock because her dress, especially the shoulder detail, is so gorgeous and she pulled it off perfectly in combination with the hair, make up and accessories.

  23. TLVgirl March 8, 2010 at 17:28 #

    Even though I adored zoe’s Givenchy gown, I’ve decided to root for Sandra, who is possibly the underdog of this best dressed list. Actually the real underdog here is Meryl Streep but I was really impressed by how great Sandra looked so I voted for her.
    For some reason I’m feeling the urge to reveal that I think Jeniffer Lopez and Amanda Seyfried looked like they were wearing bubble wrap. I don’t get these Armani Prive dresses. For me they only work on lady gaga.

  24. Dorian Gray March 8, 2010 at 17:27 #

    Please FC post something on Victoria Beckham @ Elton John after-Oscar party! She was amazing in her design!! Thanks

  25. Yaas March 8, 2010 at 17:23 #

    Beside these ladies ( Meryl, Zoe, Maggie, Rachel and Jennifer were my fav.) I really liked Carey Mulligan (I know you didn’t like her outfit), so I gave my vote to amazing Meryl

    • Yaas March 8, 2010 at 21:15 #

      Also I liked Diane Kruger’s 🙁

  26. JoltOfDavid March 8, 2010 at 17:20 #

    Perhaps for the first time, Cameron looked much older than she really is. She shouldn’t even be on this list. The whole look is very dated.
    Meryl looked fresh and relaxed. Too bad she was pretty much the only one.
    Carey Mulligan’s Prada was so much better than Rachel’s scarfy Elie Saab.
    Zoe Saldana certainly made an effort.

  27. dressaddict March 8, 2010 at 17:20 #

    Why doesn’t Miley appear on this poll? She was definitely better dressed than Anna Kendrick. So sorry you didn’t think she was worthy of being at least mentioned on the site for this occasion 🙁

    • Sonia March 9, 2010 at 01:27 #

      yeah i was thinking the same thing. i mean for me zoe was the clear winner but miley deserved to be on the list or at the very least even discussed/mentioned on the site. i mean, i know you don’t like her FC, but is that why you left her out?

      • Fashion Critic March 9, 2010 at 01:38 #

        When it comes to writing about people like Miley and Kristen Stewart there is a fan backlash when you write about them which the fans don’t like and for me this has become increasing tiresome.

        I didn’t mention her because I really didn’t have an opinion on her look. I really didn’t care and rather than be miserable about her I didn’t feature her.

        I mentioned Kristen because even though she was awkward in the dress the dress itself was amazing

        • Kate March 10, 2010 at 22:13 #

          Totally agree! (on the styling comments and on the fact that their fans can be, um, annoying, to say the least)

          Miley is boring, and though she looked better than usual, something about the fit of her dress (tiiiight bodice that looks like it might show some nip if she moved) was off…

          Kristen wore a lovely dress, but I’d argue the dress wore her. It just didn’t seem… right on her. On P.Cruz, K. Winslet, etc, perfect. On her, it just seemed a touch too old and glam.

  28. julie March 8, 2010 at 17:18 #

    i do love your blog…but there are some aspects that let me down recently….first of all, why do you keep making separate posts? maybe it has some logical explanation but i’ve always thought that you can get a more general view when there are a lot of outfits together…and why don’t you give anymore fashion awards? that was actually the most fun part from this blog….anyway checking it is my guilty pleasure so i won’t give up reading it! best wishes

    • Fashion Critic March 8, 2010 at 22:44 #

      Julie, I receive lots of negatives comments but as I feel that everyone is entitled to their opinions I accept the comment and move on.

      On this occasion I was really annoyed by your comment considering the lengths I had gone to to blog about the Oscars.

      On Sunday night after I left Paris missing Sonia Rykiel and John Gallian’s shows to head back to London to blog about the Oscars from my home because I wanted to watch the ceremony whilst blogging and my hotel didn’t have a channel which showed the Oscars.

      I blogged live, so it was not possible to give out the awards you are referring to, because I was not able to compare the looks like I have done in the past when I waited for everything to come in before blogging.

      After saying up until 4am on Monday morning after blogging as many as I could without falling asleep, I woke up at 8am after 4 hours sleep to blog some more.

      I left my house at 11.30 to catch the 12.30 train back to Paris missing Giambattista Valli’s (one of my favourite designers) 2pm show and I arrived in Paris at 3.50.

      I arrived at my hotel an hour later in which I blogged some more.

      I then went to 2 Fashion Week shows, and one re-see before returning to my hotel at 9pm.

      Before returning to my hotel I was finally managed to eat for the first time in the day.

      So I’m sorry if you felt let down, but I have worked my butt off to bring the Oscar coverage – which I’m still working on – on little sleep and 5 hours on travelling on the Eurostar.


      With regards to the posts being separate. This is in order to speed up the site.

      Grouping so many pictures together slows down the server as it recalls 15 or so pictures from one post, and therefore slows down the site.

      • dressaddict March 8, 2010 at 22:53 #

        FC, sorry to intervine, but people probably think you are not alone in this, I myself assume you have another (at least) co-blogger working with you. And after your explanation we can see it is tremendous work to do it only by yourself.

      • Jeremy March 9, 2010 at 00:19 #

        People are sometimes just too greedy that they demand everything has to be on the table immediately. It really amazes me on how much dedication you have put on this blog. Sure there are few hiccup there and now, but your constant, hour-to-hour updates are just…impressive. I don’t know if I can have to same patience and passion like yours to do such works. I thank you for being that wonderful. Don’t let anything get you down, cause we always got your back!

        • Fashion Critic March 9, 2010 at 01:31 #

          thanks Jeremy 🙂

        • mol March 9, 2010 at 02:14 #

          Ditto to Jeremy’s well said comment – I really do think the complainers are far fewer than the ‘appreciators’ who love what your doing!

        • Erik Mercedes March 9, 2010 at 02:52 #

          I agree with Jeremy!

          Honey, let me tell you, I was up all night blogging about the Oscars and I live in America! It was sooo exhausting! I remember sending you to bed last night because I couldn’t believe that you were still up! What’s even crazier is that while I was still up blogging, I saw you do your last post, and a few hours later, maybe 3-4 hours, there was another post! I was like seriously, did this girl not go to bed?! I thought how disciplined is she to go to sleep for what, four hours and get up and hop right back on the computer to satisfy her readers! That being said, you do a fantastic job and should let the negative comments roll of your back because YOU’RE the blogger that’s being featured in American Vogue!!!!! I mean, really?? It doesn’t get any better than that! Keep doing your thing!


          • Fashion Critic March 9, 2010 at 10:50 #

            LOL yes you did send me to bed.

            Thanks Mercedes.

        • Vicky March 9, 2010 at 11:01 #

          I noticed that compared to previous award shows and last years coverage that it wasn’t updated as quickly. But when I realized you’re in Paris for fashion week I totally understand why. And here’s a million hugs to you for keeping up the REALLY good work, despite being on the run 24/7!! I don’t know what I would’ve done without this site!

      • whitestroke March 11, 2010 at 02:23 #

        I’ve been saying this few times for the past few years and I’ll say it again. I think it’s outrageous when people complain about anything on your blog. It’s YOUR blog. You do it how YOU do it and we can all be grateful for it and enjoy it, and those that do not should just move on. I’ve seen few people complaining about the way you’re making more separate posts now and it rubbed me the wrong way. Why should any of us tell YOU how you should or should not run your blog? That’s unacceptable and even rude. Just enjoy the content. The format is up to the poster.

        • Fashion Critic March 11, 2010 at 08:54 #

          Thanks Whitestroke. I find it baffling too.

          To say I love your blog, but I hate this this this and this about it.

          Say what????

    • Maggie March 9, 2010 at 14:44 #

      Julie not cool.

      I think it’s quite clear that FC is working night and day on this site and your being very ungrateful

  29. Amelia March 8, 2010 at 17:18 #

    ZOE! ZOE! ZOE! I was watching the Oscars here in Brazil and the TV critic dared to say she was badly dressed! she clearly doesn’t understand what a couture gown is about!

  30. nicole March 8, 2010 at 17:15 #

    then JLO, Meryl and Sandra

  31. Luana Gabriella March 8, 2010 at 17:15 #

    I personally don’t like Miley Cyrus neither her style, but surprisingly she is my best dressed nominee.
    And second Cameron Diaz.

  32. Alex March 8, 2010 at 17:15 #

    We had some amazing gowns this year but I voted for rachel McAdams, she wins for me, her dress is amazing, it’s like made for her and she looks fresh and glamorous.

    Are you gonna post best/ worst dresses? Because I always wait for this!

  33. Nemesis March 8, 2010 at 17:14 #

    No Diane!?! i thought you would put her in the list as many thouht she look wonderful…

  34. Watcher March 8, 2010 at 17:13 #

    I’m horrified now.. At first I thought Zoe looked really nice and unique but now the dress seems just too big for her and the slit in the front is really ruining it for me.

    So Sandra all the way.

  35. Kyutye March 8, 2010 at 17:06 #

    1. My voet goes to Jennifer Lopez. I love the gown, the colour and the make up. The hair and shoes are a bit of a let down though.
    2. A very close second is Rachel McAdams. Her gown is just breathtaking.
    3. Maggie Gylenhaal.
    4. Anna Kendrick.
    5. Zoe Saldana / Sandra Bullock
    6. Meryl Streep
    I really didn’t like Cameron’s and SJP’s looks.

  36. mol March 8, 2010 at 17:04 #

    I really loved Maggie and Rachel, but I have to give it to Sandra – the makeup wasn’t perfect, but the gown was. It makes her look so tall and elegant, and it has the perfect amount of shimmer, she moved well in it, and her personality still came through, bravo!

  37. stinalotta March 8, 2010 at 17:03 #

    Cameron Diaz, without a doubt. She looks so amazing, she is essentially glowing. Seriously, perfect, hands down. Finally she shows us what she’s capable of, I don’t think I have ever been this much in love with her on a red carpet.

    Amanda Seyfried should be on this list too, but that may be just me.

  38. Elise March 8, 2010 at 16:58 #

    It is impossible to choose one. I voted for Sandra because she looked amazing but SJP, Cameron and Rachel are wonderful !

  39. Tanua March 8, 2010 at 16:58 #

    FC,I love you but you missed out my favourite look of the night by FAR,this being zoe kravitz’s dress. Did you not see it?she looked amazing-best of the night!is there any way you can add her to the list?!

    • mm March 8, 2010 at 22:56 #

      She did look adorable.

  40. lee March 8, 2010 at 16:57 #

    i honestly can’t vote. they’re all so gorgeous!

    …..but for originality, i have to give it to either sjp or zoe.

  41. Dinesh March 8, 2010 at 16:54 #

    I am honestly spoilt for choice. Some of them look amazing. I can’t decide between Zoe and Rachel. ):

  42. Naomi March 8, 2010 at 16:53 #

    I also voted for Cam D, I still think Saldana’s dress is absolutely horrible.

    BTW, I thought Queen Latifah looked amazing in her Badgley Mischka.

  43. Marvel March 8, 2010 at 16:53 #

    I was tempted to vote for Sandra as I love her and her dress but Diaz made me swoon with perfection and I love her blown out hair like that. Her and Vera were stunning. Rachel was a nice surprise and Meryl looks the best she has ever looked. Zoe’s dress was very dramatic to say the least

  44. shap_half March 8, 2010 at 16:51 #

    This was a great night for fashion. I really loved so many looks and I think you selected a really strong crop, I wish there was room to add Carey Mulligan, Nicole Richie, Vera Farmiga, Kate Winslet and Amanda Seyfried.

    So many of them look amazing. I voted for SJP. She looked amazing. The color of the gown is great. The detail on the neckline is interesting. She just put it all together.

  45. Barbara March 8, 2010 at 16:47 #

    zoe looks fantastic,but i think cameron or rachel deserve it better,because zoe looks perfect everywhere,but cameron just totally WOWed me,the same with rachel 🙂

  46. Erik Mercedes March 8, 2010 at 16:46 #

    I am soooo excited that Zoe is leading the polls! I nearly had a heart attack when I saw her in that Givenchy dress! Has anyone every won peoples choice and FC’s choice?? 😉


  47. From Russia With Love March 8, 2010 at 16:44 #


  48. mm March 8, 2010 at 16:43 #

    Zoe is my #1, the dress was amazing and she really looked outstanding on the red carpet and on the stage presenting. Then it would be Maggie, JLo and SJP.

  49. Hayley March 8, 2010 at 16:42 #

    I have never had so much trouble choosing between two – Sandra Bullock and Zoe Saldana. Both took my breath away but Sandra somehow got my vote.

  50. Jennifer March 8, 2010 at 16:40 #

    First and only time I can claim I was the first to vote.

    After a quick deliberation, I gave it to Cameron,. who, with her old school Hollywood charm and beauty, knocked it out of the park for me one hundred percent.
