Oscars 2011 - Best & Worst

Hi loves! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Mine consisted of wonderful NC weather, time with a great friend and of course, the Oscars! Who watched? I thought Anne & James were an interesting combo. Though someone needed to show James how to read the teleprompter without looking confused. I thought Miss Hathaway did a great job! LOVE her.

But of course, the fun part is the red carpet! I kind of went a little Joan Rivers this year and decided to share my picks for best and worst dressed of the night.

Let's start with the downside first...

via Marisa / Nicole

I think Marisa's dress felt off to me because of the fabric catching in all of the wrong places. The shape doesn't bother me, but I couldn't stop staring at her hips. No, thank you. The structure of Nicole's dress is very cool, but I found the beading to be super distracting, plus her orange pumps kept taking my eyes off her dress and straight to the floor. Not a big fan...

Okay, on to my favorites!

via Mila / Helen
These two could do no wrong this year! Mila's Elie Saab number fits her personality and the lilac was perfect for her complexion. There are so many details to this dress and I'm in love with it! You can find the Elie Saab bridal line (in all of its lacy and romantic goodness) here. Dame Helen Mirren was fabulous per usual. This dress was timeless, just like her. And her bit with fellow-presenter, Russell Brand, was quite hilarious.

Kind of sad my pick for Best Picture didn't win, but from what I hear The King's Speech is the bees knees. Will have to check that out for sure! What are you thoughts? Share your favorites (or not-so-favorites) in the comments! 

Happy Monday!


  1. I totally agree with worst! I was also excited to see that overall most people looked great! My best dressed picks would go to Natalie or Cate Blanchett.

  2. I couldn't get enough of Mila last night. Loved Natalie also. As far as worst, agree with you on Nicole

  3. Totally agree with your picks!

  4. Helen Mirren is a hot babe! I can only hope I look half as good as she does at her age...

    Great picks!

  5. I have to say i agree 100% You are so right!!
