Penelope Cruz In L’Wren Scott – 2011 Oscars

Best Dressed Couple Award
I refused to believe that Penelope Cruz just had a baby.

The Spanish actress looked breath-taking in red at the 2011 Oscars tonight.

Her fiery L’Wren Scott Spring 2011 gown was decorated with sequins, but she still added more sparkle with Chopard jewels.

Penelope comes second to Nicole Kidman when it comes to loving L’Wren Scott work.

I hope she’s not in any hurry to lose her baby weight, because I think she looks perfect the way she is.

It’s so great to see her back on the red carpet again.

Mandy Moore In Monique Lhuillier – 2011 Oscars

I Know You Love It, But I Don’t Award
Many of you have already stated how much you loved Mandy Moore’s look at the 2011 Oscars tonight.

Please don’t hate me, but I don’t.

The issue I have with this Monique Lhuillier Spring 2011 gown is that it’s so Mandy.

We all would’ve picked this nude sequin off-the-shoulder gown for her.

She never has an ace up her sleeve. It’s always the same type of gown.

Scarlett Johansson In Dolce & Gabbana – 2011 Oscars

Missing MoJo Award
When you think of Scarlett Johansson and Dolce & Gabbana, you are expecting a jaw dropping moment.

At the 2011 Oscars ScarJo wore Dolce, but my jaw is still perfectly intact.

In fact I find this Bordeaux one of a kind Dolce & Gabbana lace gown with an open back quite boring and dated.

Nicole Kidman would have worn this dress back in 1999.

This dress is doing nothing for the Dolce & Gabbana cosmetic and fragrance brand ambassador.

I was hoping this would be the chance she would get to prove she hasn’t lost her mojo, but I think this only confirms it.

What happened to the blonde bombshell we all knew and loved?

Next…

A gold Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch completed her look.

Michelle Williams In Chanel Couture – 2011 Oscars

Most Improved Award
After being universally classed as frumpy at the 2011 Golden Globes Awards Michelle Williams redeems herself at the 2011 Oscars tonight.

Her Chanel Spring 2011 Couture fully beaded gown has been modified from the runway to have a slinkier silhouette, which I’m sure you’ll all agree is a huge improvement.

It wasn’t just the dress I loved, but the whole package.

The hair and make-up were also vastly improved from the Globes.

She took that criticism and turn it into perfection.

Amy Adams In L’Wren Scott – 2011 Oscars

L’Wren Scott Isn’t Just For Nicole Kidman Award
On Nicole Kidman’s Oscar post, some of you have said, “At least she’s not wearing L’Wren Scott”.

Well Amy Adams is going to make you eat your words because I think she looked outstanding on the red carpet at the 2011 Oscars tonight wearing a dress from L’Wren Scott’s recent Fall 2011 collection.

The purple caviar-bead embroidered dress was worn with emerald and silver Cartier jewels.

I think I prefer the darker coloured accessories as presented on the runway.

Salvatore Ferragamo black satin shoes and Hollywood waves completed her look.

Gwyneth Paltrow In Calvin Klein – 2011 Oscars

Minimalist Again Award
Gwyneth Paltrow opted for yet another minimalist look on the red carpet at the 2011 Oscars.

She always seems to do the minimalist thing on big occasions like this. It’s almost like she’s trying to prevent another pink puffy dress disaster. Well too late it happened in 1999.

I do love her super sleek silver metallic Calvin Klein dress, especially with the Louis Vuitton brooch on her hip.

I’m not too crazy about the silhouette. I wish it was nipped in just a bit around the waist as Gwynie has an amazing figure.

Louis Vuitton high jewelry and Brian Atwood gold ankle strap ‘Martina’ pumps completed her look.

Nicole Kidman In Christian Dior – 2011 Oscars

My honest immediate reaction to Nicole Kidman’s Christian Dior Spring 2009 Couture gown at the 2011 Oscars was dislike.

After looking at her white bustier column gown with silver embroidered details a few more times, I think it’s growing on me.

I don’t love it, but there is something about it that’s keeping me interested.

Had this gown been in a deep purple colour like Natalie Portman’s gown I think I would’ve been persuaded to love it.

I think the major problem is that Nicole isn’t really selling the look.

The Australian actress continues to have a love affair with Pierre Hardy heels. On this occasion she opted for a coral peep-toe sandal.
