The 82nd Academy Award

The dresses at this year Oscar fall neatly into a few color schemes including nudes, pastels, metallics, black, blue and red. One-shoulder straps and cascading ruffles are also popular.

1. Nudes:

I didn’t even know who this girl was but her dress is one of my favorites. Anika Noni Rose (Dream girls, The princess and the frog)


Anna Kendrick, very subtle and elegant.


Demi Moore. Yes, her skin does match her dress … Talking about the Snooki trend.


Diane Kruger. Do the black embellishments of this dress remind anyone of drag queen costumes?


Miley Cyrus appeared very hunchbacked in her dress, afraid it might fall off? I hate her biker’s blown hair.


Sarah Jessica Parker. A very bad choice, from the shiny fabric to the unflattering inverted-triangle silhouette. It seems like she’s being stabbed by the spear-like top and then strangled by the scarf.   


Zoe Saldana. There’re a lot of ambivalent feelings about this dress. The bodice is fine, a little too sparkly but the skirt acutely resembles a Swifter duster.



2. Rosy/lavender:

Queen Latifah. A big woman who does it right. The dress is perfect for her.



Jennifer Lopez. This Armani Prive number only enhances her already amazing curves. The dress is off the runway, impressive and exaggerated but not too much. She totally pulls it off.


Charlize Theron. You know, those controversial rosettes. Still, the dress looks very nice on her slender frame.  



 3. Metallics:

Kate Winslet. She keeps it simple and elegant.


Sandra Bullock. The embellishment is sophisticated, and the hair and makeup is so classy. She looks perfect receiving her Actress in a Leading Role award.


Is Helen Mirren 64? Her dress is very age-appropriate, especially with the opaque sleeves.
