Oscars Outfit Watch

It wasn't just the King's speech the other oscar nominees had to worry about, there was the case of looking your immaculate best for one of the most prestigious events of the year. There were very rare misses this year and they did stand out like Cate Blanchett's "vomcano" inducing dress.
However celebrities like Anne Hathaway and Sandra Bullock, who joined the red gown brigade looked stunning in their respective Valentino and Vera wang strapless gowns. Others like Halle Berry, Hilary swank, penelope cruz etc who opted for the more complicated dresses were still a bit behind in the best dressed stakes.
Overall it was an exceptionally successful "event catwalk" so i decided to put up the 3 outfits i thought stole the show.

No 3 - Florence Welch wore the beautiful cream lace valentino couture gown with typically superb valentino embroidery and just like the others in my top 5 compliments it with the single ring adding to the super feminine look.

No 2 - Blue valentine actress Michelle Williams was looking stunning in her silver beaded chanel dress. This was extremely fancy but looked remarkably comfortable and worked well with her trendy pixie hair do.

Winner - Gwyneth Paltrow's gorgeous sleek and shimmery column dress just edged it as my favourite of the night. She pulled it off extremely well with her subtle jewellery choice. The outfit fitted her to perfection.
