2015 Oscar Fashion - The Best

Let's finish this thing off, shall we? Here are my top 10 favorite looks from this year's Oscars ceremony!

Octavia Spencer
First off, Octavia Spencer in this pastel blue Tadashi Shoji gown. The dress fits her great, and is such a pretty color against her skin tone. I loved the ethereal look of this too. It's so soft and fluid, and the embroidery detail is just gorgeous; especially along the hem. Her hair, make-up, and accessories complimented the look perfectly.

Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston looked pretty flawless in this sparkly, nude, Versace number. I was so happy to see her in something other than black; although nude is not that much of a departure. The bead work is exquisite, and I love all the overlying panels. The color and lack of jewelry really showcase her natural beauty, but I still would have liked to see the hair more...well, done. Overall, it's a great look though, and she gets my vote for most improved.

Scarlett Johansson
I was on the fence about Scarlett Johansson's look, but ultimately decided I loved it! The emerald green, Versace gown fit like a glove. It cut a striking silhouette, and was super sexy. The choker was a bold choice, but the dress was simple enough that it enhanced rather than distracted. Her make-up looked great, and the rocker chic hair really pulled the entire look together.

Naomi Watts
Naomi Watts wore this silver and black, Armani Prive dress. It was a risky choice that paid off in spades. I loved the brick and mortar pattern, and the texture was great. Her hair was simple and sexy, and her make-up and accessories really topped off the edgy look. It was definitely one of the most interesting dresses of the night. Well done, Naomi!

Anna Kendrick
Anna Kendrick wore this lovely, coral, Thakoon dress. The halter neckline and criss-cross bodice brought a bit of glamour to what would have otherwise been a very simple dress. This is the very definition of understated elegance. Her hair and make-up are lovely too. Great look!

Anna Faris
Anna Faris wore this sparkly, white, Zuhair Murad gown. I loved the iridescent fabric and all the sparkles! I was happy to see at least one proper ballgown on the red carpet. There's really not much to say about it other than...pretty! Her hair color is gorgeous, and the dress only needed a few simple accessories to finish off the look. So, pretty, Anna!

Cate Blanchett
Cate Blanchett wore this statuesque, black, John Galliano number. It's simple and chic, and the frayed edges give it...well, a little edge. The statement necklace is gorgeous and really pops. The dress also highlights her gorgeous alabaster skin. She always brings it on the red carpet, and this was no exception. Absolutely lovely.

Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow wore this pink, Ralph and Russo Couture dress. The color looks great on her, and the fit is incredible. The flower on the shoulder and single long sleeve are the perfect amount of visual interests for the dress. Her hair and make-up was great, and those earrings are divine! Beautiful job!

Lupita Nyong'o
Lupita Nyong'o wore this stunning, pearled, Calvin Klein gown. It's absolutely gorgeous. The white looks so pretty against her dark skin, and the pearls!!! So many pearls!!! I loved her simple hair, and her make-up was perfect. Great job, Lupita!

AND FINALLY...
Emma Stone
Ultimately, I chose Emma Stone's chartreuse, Elie Saab gown as my favorite of the night. It hits all my must-haves for a great gown. It's an interesting color. It's visually interesting. It's sparkly. It was different. It's dramatic. It has long sleeves! It was a risky choice that paid off. I loved the color and wave of her hair. Her make-up was fresh...loved the coral color lip. The shoes were sexy, and the diamond cuffs a fun and unexpected choice for jewels. She looks young and hip and trendsetting; yet at the same time this is perfect old Hollywood glamour. Fabulous job, Emma!!

That's it for the 2015 Oscar dress review! Did you agree or disagree with my picks? What was your favorite of the night?
