Lights, Camera, Action!

The Academy Awards…. the film awards, but more importantly, a time when amazing Haute Couture pieces dazzle the Red Carpet. Trend Alert.... metallics, crystals, embezzlements, up do hair with statement accessories and ruffles! Here are a few of my best and worst dressed of the night.
Diane Krugar in complete Chanel!  Chanel Haute Couture gown, Chanel accessories and jewellery.  All I can say is completely amazing.  This is one of my favourite Chanel gowns, from the very moment it stepped on the catwalk.  Now I love it even more on the Red Carpet.  The outfit is completed with a simple, elegant black Chanel clutch and Chanel hair clip.
Cameron Diaz dressed in Cartier jewellery and an Oscar de la Renta gown, straight from the Autumn/Winter 2010/11 runway. Just stunning.. The art of Rachel Zoe?   
Sandra Bullock in Marchesa.  I've heard conflicting views, but i think, that Marchesa, can never get it wrong!  The hair looks stunning and the pop of colour on the lips compliments the outfit.  She looks elegant and perfect, really 'Oscar like.'
Miley Cyrus in Jenny Packham gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery.  All I can say is, completely glamorous and I really did not recognise her.  The loose up do, the jewellery, the tulle and bodice... Love it!
Amanda Seyfried in Armani Prive Haute Couture.  The detailing on the gown is exquisite, encrusted with Swarovski crystals.  She looks pretty and delicate. 
Kate Winslet in a simple YSL dress complimented with a $2.5 million Tiffany and Co diamond necklace! So simple, yet so elegant.
Elizabeth Banks in a Versace gown and Fred Leighton diamonds.  Ruffles, ruffles and ruffles! Love the gown, gorgeous diamond headband, she looks pretty, feminine and princess like.
Zoe Saldana in Givenchy Haute Couture gown.  This was a major risk and definately out there.  I think it's amazing though.  In theory, the elements of the gown would be considered overwhelming, but it just works! Love the colour contrast of purple and the beaded bodice, is just gorgeous. 
Demi Moore in Versace.  The colour looks stunning on her.  The draping and ruffles compliment her figure, she looks amazing and flawless.  Rachel Zoe has done it again!
Charlize Theron.. Hands down, this was the worst dressed!  What was with the swirls on the bodice?  The focus was totally there, not on her.  I also really disliked the conflicting contrast of the colour pink.
Mariah Carey, someone should really inform her about the dress code.  Then again, it's Mariah Carey.  The dress aside, there are too many accessories.  As Coco Chanel says, "before you leave your house, take one thing off."
Best Dressed Male - Zac Efron in Calvin Klein - Just wow!
