Oscars Red Carpet 2012

A good fashion gurl's gotta do what she's gotta do! Right after some chitty-chat with friends and shooting my outfit post, I went home as fast as I can. Just imagine my excitement to see the red carpet lewks for this year's Academy Awards! We all should know by now, unless you're living in the woods scavenging for squirrels and rabbits ala Katniss Everdeen, how important the Oscars is for both the movie and fashion industry - the Mother of all awards, where the brightest of the brightest stars sashay down the red carpet. Here's the rundown.


God I love her. No words for Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace. It's impeccable how she managed to master the art of red carpet dressing. Gorgeous, just gorgeeeouzzz. *Another proof that she ain't human and she's an android from planet Ferosha*

How vivid-er can you get with this stunning vision; Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli couture. The festive bow around her neck garners no problem with me though, it's perfect and just lovely.

I have a penchant for everything Alexander McQueen and Jessica Chastain gave justice to the gown. Dying at the exquisite intricacy of those beautifully tailored gold details!

All the queens got nothing on Michelle William's fresh coral Louis Vuitton gown. Love how it complemented her skin tone and looked so prom-ready.

Veering away from black, here's Rooney Mara in yes you got that right, Givenchy. Her alabaster skin and the virginal color of the dress made it a match made in heaven. Impeccably cut and boasts modern minimalism.

Transporting us back in time is Natalie Portman in a vintage Dior Haute Couture gown. Gave me Mickey Mouse vibes all over, don't know why... But still, it's ladylike elegance at its finest.

Hmm. Shailene Woodley in Valentino. A little tricky because I thought she looked older than her age but nonetheless, she carried the dress well and not ended up looking a girl wearing her granny's clothes lol.

HOLY MOTHER OF ALL GLAM DISCO MOTHERS! J. Lo in Zuhair Murad! That cutout on her arms is a sexy and stunning accent!
Rooney's sister Kate Mara in Elie Saab. Just look at the subtle color with a sexy flash of skin.

Is it me or Rose Byrne's Vivienne Westwood gown is a wee bit short? Sequins galore and looked so posh and sexy.

The red carpet was replete with sequins and Ellie Kemper proved just that by joining the fash pack. The elegant tailoring suit the star's svelte figure but isn't it odd for her to match her hair color with the dress? Just saying.

Pinoy pride by way of this Monique Lhuillier creation worn by Judy Greer. Talk about high-impact chic glamorosa! 

Midas touched some of the ladies' gowns who walked the red carpet and I especially adore this beautifully cut gown by Marchesa. Stacy Kiebler looking slick, sexy and oh so glossy! 

Another Golden Girl Lady! Meryl Streep in a Lanvin creation looking breathtaking and fab. Oh and did I mention she won Best Actress for Iron Lady?

Princesses walked the red carpet too! Kidding. Penelope Cruz in Armani Prive. 

Octavia Spencer looked nothing but divine in Tadashi Shoji. Made her look taller and slimmer no?

SHE SUMMONED ALL THE FASHION GODS OVER AT TOM FORD GOOD LAWD!! Gwyneth Paltrow, you are the successor of Miz Tilda Swinton for the Miss Minimalism award! Clean lines, unfussy, pristine white and that ultrafemme silhouette is a blockbuster hit! CRYING AT THE P e r f e c t i o n.
