Red Carpet Style Watch: Academy Awards 2011

By Silhouettes1 · February 28, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

The 2011 Academy Awards was last weekend, and wow! So many sophisticated and awesome styles to check out. (And some trainwrecks, too, but that’s part of the fun).

First, the good. Scarlett Johanssen rocked a Dolce & Gabbana lace dress in a super magenta color. I love this. What I didn’t love was her hair, which, by the time she presented, looked like she’d gotten out of the pool and hadn’t bothered to shower afterward.

And Anne Hathaway, as the new host, looked stunning in almost all her dresses (and really seemed to be having fun). Her blueberry-colored “fruit roll up” dress--toward the end of the evening--was really amazing.

Sandra Bullock also carried off a red dress, and, super-cute bonus, said she wore it because her little son likes red!

Now, the trainwrecks. You can usually count on Helena Bonham-Carter to bring the weirdness. Oscar night was no exception. While it wasn’t a Golden Globe-level fiasco, this messy conglomeration of gloves and corset was kind of goth and very blech.

Any thoughts on your favorite red carpet styles?
