Oscar Style

Octavia Spencer took home the Best Supporting Actress
award.  She looked radiant in this gown by Tadashi Shoji
The 84th Annual Academy Awards took place last night and as usual the red carpet brought some of the best and the worst in style.  Oscar night has quickly become the most important show for designers.  The fashion world always has its eye on what the celebrities will be wearing.  Last night's showing proved that couture still rules, white isn't just for brides and women are still knockouts as a lady in red.

My favorite was Gwyneth Paltrow's dress by Tom Ford.  This is something I could see myself wearing. It was a minimalist elegant gown with a cape draped over the shoulders.  Another favorite was Cameron Diaz' strapless Gucci Premiere gown.  Angelina Jolie wore a black velvet Atelier Versace gown that had her showing off her leg.  

Octavia Spencer, who won the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in The Help, wore an embroidered gown by Tadashi Shoji.

Below are a few favorite picks from last night's red carpet.  What did you think? Who was your favorite?
