Red Carpet: The Oscars 2009

Yippee! I’m still beaming with excitement from this year’s Oscars! The fabulous gowns, fresh winners and gosh, Hugh Jackman *swoons* Slumdog Millionaire deserves every award the film received – because I honestly think it’s the best film this year. Some people call it’s a crowd-pleaser, and some think it’s overrated. I think the film rocks – and yes, Danny Boyle finally got the recognition he deserved. Let’s focus our attention to the Oscars red carpet trend and best dressed: We see alot of beautiful fishtails (yes, we’re talking volumes!), belts (that’s new!) and of course seeing red, red, red! I’m very pleased with most of the red carpet moments – I think this has to be one of the best Oscars to date:

My pick for Best Dressed for the night. Kate Winslet stunned the world with this dramatic one-shouldered, silky, and multi-textured Yves Saint Laurent gown and shoes. A clear winner, don’t you think?

Penelope Cruz became the first Spanish Oscar winner. Congrats! She turned heads with this 60-year old voluminous ivory sweetheart vintage Balmain dress with lace detailing.

She may not be an Oscar winner, but Marisa Tomei hit the high notes with this silver-hued mermaid gown with an insane train by Versace.

In my humble opinion, Anne Hathaway is the modern Audrey Hepburn. Her modern-classic beauty sparkled in this sparkling, slender Armani Privé gown. It’s so beautiful, I can’t breathe.

Natalie Portman sweetened up this Grecian-inspired, orchid pink Rodarte gown.

Evan Rachel Wood made her way into the Best Dressed list in this soft champagne Elie Saab gown.

Angelina Jolie is one classy mama in this black Elie Saab gown with striking emerald earrings.

I’m in love with this girl. Freida Pinto rocked her Oscars debut in this sapphire, one-sleeve gown by John Galliano with Indian-inspired detailing. Love, love it.

Sarah Jessica Parker is not leaving her Carrie Bradshaw “tulle” behind! She wore this “barely mint” gown by Christian Dior Couture – such a ethereal, whimsical pick!

As one of the beauties in red, Amy Adams stood out in this strapless red Carolina Herrera gown and a colorful jeweled bib necklace by Fred Leighton.

Jennifer Aniston looked gorgeous in this shiny Valentino gown. Pretty!

Finally, congratulation to all the winners of this year’s Oscars!
