The Oscars: Forget the statuettes, show me the pretty dresses

Jennifer Lawrence, Anne HathawayThe dresses are always my favorite part of watching the Oscars. Even if you haven’t seen a single Oscar-nominated film, who doesn’t enjoy looking at all the pretty dresses and picking out your favorite? (Along with picking out the flops.)

I personally think Jennifer Lawrence easily walked away with the best-dressed award for her classically feminine pink and white Dior dress with the voluminous skirt (even if she did fall on her way to accepting the Oscar).

Here’s a few other noteworthy outfits from the night. Who was your favorite? Who didn’t you like? (All photos by AP unless otherwise noted.)

…dresses were all pretty awesome…
(Berry’s ‘roaring twenties – art-deco’ number most def. cool…

Amy Adams’…
…gee…ya knowwww, I’m feelin’ a little ‘Sully’ from ‘Monsters Inc.’ a bit… but hey… she does work with a lot of cartoon characters…

I thought everyone looks pretty darn good. I loved Jennifer Lawrence with the back necklace and I thought Jennifer Hudson really wowed in the blue beaded dress. I thought the contrast of art deco, heavily beaded dresses vs. the soft, romantic old Hollywood style on the red carpet was interesting. Really, in today’s stylist driven world, just about everyone pulls off what they wear – thought I have mixed feeling about Anne Hathaway: In photos, she looks great. But on TV it was not so forgiving.

Lauran Klemenc says:

Berry was born Maria Halle Berry, though her name was legally changed to Halle Maria Berry at the age of five. Berry’s parents selected her middle name from Halle’s Department Store, which was then a local landmark in her birthplace of Cleveland, Ohio.
