Oscar Red Carpet Review 2012

Black and white ruled the red carpet at the Oscars last night.  High contrast and understated accessories had a major showing, while most hair remained sleek and makeup was minimal. 

Here are my top picks from the red carpet at the Academy Awards:

Gwyneth Paltrow was stunning at both the Grammy’s and the Oscars this year.  Her stark white gown screams “fashion forward” with accented shoulders and matching cape.  While her hair style has been controversial and her makeup is super minimal, it matches her overall look elegantly.

Emma Stone looked lovely in one of the only colored gowns of the evening, proving that red-heads really can wear red!  She looks totally age appropriate and flawless.

Jennifer Lopez looked super sexy last night in a plunging gown with cut-out arms.  The striped fabric accentuated her lovely frame, as did her high and sleek bun with understated lips.

My personal favorite of the evening!  I love Sandra Bullock’s black and white gown with gold detailing.  She chose to wear her jewelry on her dress!  This look is so modern and made complete by her high ponytail and soft earrings.

Angelina Jolie was the most daring of the evening in her thigh-high leg slit.  I love the intensity of her dress’s fabric and the contrast between her lips and gown.  She is the essence of drama!
