2012 Oscars Best Dressed - Gwyneth Paltrow, Michelle Williams and Angelina Jolie
I was really excited to see what was worn on the red carpet at the 2012 Oscars, especially after all the beautiful dresses on show at Paris Couture Fashion Week, but I was left slightly disappointed that no one really worked the huge, statement, princess style dresses that can only work, and are usually worn, at the Oscars.
My out and out winner of the battle of the red carpet has to be Gwyneth Paltrow, who looked pristine in a white Tom Ford column dress and cape. I don't think Gwynie's ever looked so chic and elegant. Sleek hair and a little bit of sparkle finishes this polished red carpet look.
Most adorable and pretty on the red carpet has to go to Michelle Williams who wowed in red Louis Vuitton. Hundreds of delicate frills made up this peplum skirted dress with a structured bodice. I also love the addition on the pink clutch bag, as pink and red is my all time favourite colour clash.
Some people have been mocking Angelina's Jolie posing at the Oscars, including people on stage at the awards (!), but let's give it to her, she was playing the vixen last night and working the heck out of this black velvet Verscae dress. A bit less of her right leg may have been an improvement, but her hair and make-up were flawless.
