Now I know I am losing the originality factor by posting this blog, however, as many of you lovely ladies out there, I cannot wait to wake up the morning after the Oscars and see all the wonderful creations which have graced the red carpet.  So here is my take on the 84th Academy Awards Fashion…

Three women stole the show as far as I am concerned: Gwyneth Paltrow, Giuliana Rancic and Rooney Mara; all stunning in white gowns.

Gwyneth Paltrow won the fashion stakes by a mile in her fabulous Tom Ford gown.

Rooney Mara wore a beautiful yet quirky Givenchy gown.

Giuliana Rancic also wowed in white, unfortunately I have been unable to source the designer – can any of you confirm?

For me the fashion Faux Pas of the evening was the gold lamé sported on the red carpet by one Meryl Streep & Stacy Keibler.

This is such a shame as Meryl looks fabulous for her age, I just can’t help thinking someone has gone crazy with some leftover Xmas wrapping paper.
I adore the cut and style of Stacy’s dress, just once again someone has had the leftover Turkey Foil out.
A few of the dresses were heavily embellished, which to me screamed ‘Lipsy’ night out in the town rather than red carpet chic…
Sheri Shepherd sporting Lipsy inspired embellishment, but the colour is fabulous nonetheless.
Melissa McCarthy’s dress should have been perfect to compliment her curves; the empire line and sleeves, however for me, it just doesn’t work for some reason.  I think the colour is quite draining for her also.

A key trend of the evening was pale skin, these women looked beautiful, however, I do not think some of us mere mortals could pull off the transparent looks as well as they can.

As expected, sequin & red were done to death on the red carpet, as this is nothing new I shall not bored you with images.
So who was the best dressed for you?
