I'd like to say it was a tough decision picking who should take the Oscar Red Carpet Queen title from my reigning Queen, Rachel McAdams, but it really wasn't that hard to pick. With the help of well paid and trained stylists, the red carpet doesn't have as many (if any) car crash red carpet moments, however some looks can still fall flat, and feel dated. But some shining stars still seem to burn brighter than others. The 2011 Oscars, to me, were all about 3 ladies - Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock and Hilary Swank.
Cate Blanchett looked like she's stepped out of another place and time in Givenchy Couture (from the same collection that Florence Welch wore to the Grammys). This dress looked better on Cate than it did on the model in Paris. Love. Love. LOVE!
God, I love Sandra Bullock. Sandra and Vera Wang should get together more often. The scarlet dress, alabaster skin and raven hair are perfection. She's conjuring up a modern day Scarlet O'Hara moment.
At the moment I have a serious thing about feathers (thank you Bernard Chandran) and ombré dresses (thank you Zac Posen and Julia Stiles in blue ombre Monique Lhuillier)so I freaked when I saw how fantastic Hilary Swank looked in Gucci ombré feathers. Delicate jewellery and slicked back hair let this dress say it it all.
Who was your best dressed at the 2011 Oscars?
