Academy Awards 2011: The Frocks, Films and All the Fun

I look forward to the Academy Awards more than my birthday. The awards, the speeches, the stars and of course the fashion. The dresses, accessories, jewels, hairstyles and beauty looks that set the trends for the months to come.

So lets look at the best bits of this years oscars…well my fave bits 🙂

Anne Hathaway arrived on the red carpet positively beaming. She had a right to her grin considering she was wearing Valentino both on her body and on her arm.

Lucky duck. Anne and James Franco made lovely (if not slightly staged) hosts; the ceremony was reflective on cinema history, classic, entertaining and filled with stars. Oh to be a fly on the wall. Anne changed into a multitude of gorgeous gowns throughout the night but my favourite outfit by far was her suit and high thick ponytail. So elegantly chic.

Click here to see the opening segment, I LOVED it. SUPER funny!

Best Supporting Actress - Melissa Leo was almost unrecognisable from her character in 'The Fighter' ....before she dropped the f-bomb on national LIVE TV. Whoops.

Natalie Portman looking simply stunning in Rodarte. Her acceptance speech when she won best actress was just like her gown; demure, beautiful and full of life..

Sandra Bullock was ravishing in Vera Wang. My favourite look of the day; her red dress, luminous clear skin, red lips and chic bun were the epitome of Hollywood glamour

Scarlett Johansson looked lovely in Dolce. It was very demure and her soft hair only prettified the look further.

Ahhh Gucci - Your magestic creations are forever inspiring. If only Miss Swanks bone features weren't so brutal.

Mila Kunis looked ridiculously beautiful in this whimsical creation of chiffon by Elle Saab. Lancome makeup artists used neutral tones to enhance the Black Swans natural beauty.

Rachel Zoe is a lover of Marchesa and this look channels her style so closely I'm wondering if Miss Berry has jumped on the Zoebot bandwagon.....nevertheless she looks AMAZING. The glowing, coffee coloured complexion with brown smokey eyes and her choppy pixie cut only exemplified her majestic beauty.

News sites and fashion blogs globally are all painting Cate as the worst dressed. I don't think so. Not many people can pull of this futuristic yet classically gorgeous trend, yet Cate and this Givenchy gown pair perfectly together. Her minimalistic makeup and perfectly coffied blonde hair kept the look chic and polished.

Michelle Williams simply shone in this Chanel number that sparkled as she shimmied down the red carpet. And zoom in on her lashes, PHENOMENAL. Ridiculously long without seemingly fake...hmmmm whats the secret!

Gone are the days when Amy Adams was seen as the annoying voice who annoyed us in films like 'The Wedding Date'. This gorgeous woman has swanned herself into the public showing of a new modest look with gowns like this one, and THAT beautiful red hair.

Collette Dinigan was this Australians fashion choice and with good measure. The Animal Kingdom star looked FABULOUS!

Nicole copped a lot of flack for this Vintage Dior choice. I think she looked gorgeous!


The important deets – Best Actress award went to Natalie Portman for her portrayel as Nina in Black Swan. Best Actor to Colin Firth in The Kings Speech which ALSO won Best Picture.


Which was your favourite red carpet look?
