Red carpet report! Oscar 2011

I may have already said this a million times, but I love the red carpet! There’s just so much fun in the anticipation, and something sinfully satisfying in seeing the worst dressed stars strut their stuff on the carpet. Bridal Inspiration from the red carpet highlights the crème de la crème of the night, showcasing eye-catching gowns with elements worthy of the wedding aisle.

My favorites for the night were;

Sandra Bullock; she looked striking in a red  Vera Wang. The back of that dress is simply to die for!

Red was a popular color last night, co-host Anne Hathaway showed up in a red Valentino

Jennifer Hudson also wore red. Her gown was by Versace and had a dramatic train. The back of the gown was stunning, but the neckline could have done with a little more coverage; that extreme low cut just doesn’t scream classy to me. Over all her dress was a hit although it just seemed too tight around her upper back. Fit really is everything!

Hailee Steinfield looked sweet in  Marchesa, her dress was really reminiscent of my favourite tea length wedding dress by J Alexander

Hilary Swank looked stunning as she walked the red carpet in Gucci Première  

Gwyneth Paltrow also chose a metallic hue and looked uber fabulous in her Calvin Klein gown.

Mandy Moore’s gown was by Monique Lhuillier who has consistently been one of my favorite bridal designers. The gown was definitely unusual and looked more like a spray of glitter than anything else.  I do love the weightless look of the dress but the waist line appeared to be a bit boxy and unflattering in my opinion.

Halle berry looked awesome as always. This woman would look awesome in a paper bag! Her gown was by Marchesa and fit like a glove. The top half of the dress was just  just divine but the chaos towards the bottom of the skirt only looked good from certain angles.
