Giuliana Rancic In Christian Siriano – 2011 Oscars

Giuliana Rancic is hosting E’s Live from the Red Carpet at the 2011 Oscars tonight wearing a Christian Siriano Spring 2011 gown.

The strapless aqua printed gown is gorgeous. I have longed to see it worn on the red carpet.

This is a lot of dress for Giuliana, as she usually wears more fitted or shorter styles as not to compete with the stars she’s interviewing on the red carpet.

It’s the Oscars, why not go big and long?

I’m not usually a fan of what she wears as she often loves to shop at Tackyville, USA but I like this look a lot.

Chopard jewels completed her look.

2010 Oscars – The Ones I Missed

I do get sad when I miss the few looks, but it’s hard to keep up with the picture agencies who are uploading about 1000 pictures per minute on Oscar night. It’s not because I hate the celebrities like some people strangely accused me of.

Here’s a look at a few I missed the first time around.

I bow down to Queen Latfiah in her stunning pink satin figure-hugging custom-made Badgley Mischka gown.

The one shoulder gown featured a jewel-encrusted band and shoulder strap, which was very flattering. Queen accessorized the look with Chopard jewels.

My other -red carpet- Queen is Georgina Chapman who dazzled me in a a black self designed dress paired with Christian Louboutin Madame Butterfly black bow detailed sandals.

I love that Georgina continues to design pieces especially for herself.

Zoe Kravitz looked stunning wearing a Alexis Mabille two-tone strapless gown which was especially designed for her.

She paired her one-of-a-kind gown with Fred Leighton jewels.

At first I thought Miley Cyrus was wearing Christian Dior, but she’s wearing Jenny Packham custom gown.

Anika Noni Rose wore a stunning gown which has a jewel-bodice which lit up the red carpet.

Paula Patton’s maternity style hasn’t really work for me. This Carolina Herrera orange gown fails to bring any excitement to the red carpet.

Helen Mirren sparkled in a Badgley Mischka gown which was covered with silver sequins.

The actress paired her gown with a Chopard necklace.

I normally wouldn’t look twice at a black gown on the red carpet at the Oscars, but Mariska Hargitay looks divine here in Vera Wang.

Elisabetta Canalis and Faith Hill both walked the red carpet with their plus one’s wearing Roberto Cavalli.

Elisabetta wore a custom made red strapless silk satin Roberto Cavalli gown, whilst carrying a Ferragamo clutch.

Faith opted for a Roberto Cavalli black strapless gown with chiffon and lace inserts.

Michelle Pfeiffer and Julianne didn’t walk the red carpet, but they were both spotted backstage.

Michelle opted for a Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2010 gown, whilst Julianne was glowing wearing a custom Calvin Klein gown with Bulgari jewels.

Runway To 2010 Oscars – Kathryn Bigelow In YSL

Historical Victory Award
Kathryn Bigelow made history at the 2010 Oscars by becoming the first woman to win the “Best Director” Oscar for ‘Hurt Locker’.

She was also a winner on the red carpet wearing a Yves Saint Laurent Edition Soir gown by Stefano Pilati.

The stunning feature of this titanium silk satin gown was the beautiful embroidered bodice.

Kathyrn paired T-strap YSL silver sandals with a YSL titanium satin clutch.

Boucheron jewels completed the look, but the red bracelet was a tad distracting.

Runway To 2010 Oscars & Vanity Fair Party – Elizabeth Banks In Atelier Versace

From Classy To Short & Sassy Award
Elizabeth Banks was one of the many presenters at the 2010 Oscars last night.

Her grey Atelier Versace Spring 2009 gown was simple around the bust, but had dramatic ruffles cascading down the skirt which I really loved.

She wore Fred Leighton jewels, a matching grey clutch and grey suede cage front Sergio Rossi heels which were embellished with crystals.

At the Vanity Fair Party she opted for another Atelier Versace Spring 2009 show-stopper.

The hem line was shorter, but the look was still very dramatic with the fold details in the skirt and that structured bodice.

Of the two looks I much preferred the first one.
