LOVE IT: The 84th Annual Academy Awards Red Carpet

The BIGGEST awards show is here...

WHAT: The 84th Annual Academy Awards
WHEN: Sunday, February 26, 2012
WHERE: Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood

This year's Oscars is bigger and better.
Meryl Streep took home the Best Actress award for the movie, Iron Lady, while Jean Dujardin of The Artist owned the Best Actor trophy at the end of the night.
The Artist was awarded Best Picture.

The Oscars is the biggest and most anticipated night for all celebs.
This awards show features the most elegant dresses by many different high end designers.
That's why I was kind of disappointed with this year's red carpet fashion.
The gowns weren't as glamorous as I expected.

Let's take a look...

Ellie Kramer, in Armani Prive.

Busy Philipps

Photobucket

Kate Mara, in Jack Guisso Couture.

Photobucket

Lea Thompson

Photobucket

Nancy O'Dell

Photobucket

Shailene Woodley, in Valentino Couture.
I think this dress makes her look old. She should have gone for a more fun and lively dress.

Photobucket

Kristen Wiig, in J. Mendel.

Photobucket

Giuliana Rancic, in Tony Ward Couture.

Photobucket

Louise Roe, in Black Halo design.

Photobucket

Missi Pyle, in an eco-friendly gown.

Photobucket

Milla Jovovich, in Elie Saab.

Photobucket

Rooney Mara, in Givenchy.

Photobucket

Gwyneth Paltrow, in Tom Ford.
I think the cape makes the look totally unique. She makes it work.

Photobucket

Jennifer Lopez, in Zuhair Murad.

Photobucket

Michelle Williams, in Louis Vuitton.

Photobucket

Penelope Cruz, in Giorgio Armani.

Photobucket

Meryl Streep, in Lanvin.
She finally won her third Academy Award after 17 nominations! WOW.
She deserves it.

Photobucket

Sandra Bullock, in Marchesa.
She looks beautiful as always. I just wish it was a little bit tighter in the upper part of the dress.
She looks like she's wearing a t-shirt.

Photobucket

Angelina Jolie, in Atelier Versace.
She's sexy! Look at that leg. LOL.

Photobucket

Emma Stone, in Giambattista Valli.
This is my 2nd favorite red carpet look.
She looks soooo good in that fuchsia Giambattista Valli gown.
It's very conservative and sophisticated.
LOVE the huge bow!

My favorite look of the night was...

Photobucket

Maria Menounos!

Photobucket

She walked the red carpet in an exquisite mint green "cut out" dress.
The color looks beautiful with her skin tone. I love the way it just seems to flow.
It falls down very beautifully with her figure.

Photobucket

Photobucket

She kept her jewelry simple with a single band silver diamond bracelet and a cocktail ring.

Photobucket

She wore minimal makeup with semi-smokey eyes, dark black mascara, light pink coral-y blush, and nude lips.
Her updo consisted of a loose chignon and she wore chandelier earrings to spice up the look.

Did you guys watch the 84th Annual Academy Awards? Who was your favorite of the night?

    Lots of love, B
