Oscars 2011: Style

Last night saw the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, aka The Oscars.  We were ecstatic that, as predicted, Natalie Portman scooped Best Actress and Colin Firth Best Actor, a result we couldn't agree more with!  But, along with awards for acting ability, red carpet glamour was also under scrutiny.  So who did we think won in the style stakes?

We thought nobody got it disastrously wrong last night.  Naturally there were a few looks that weren't to everyone's tastes (Nicole Kidman) but in the most part we thought it was a very successful ceremony for designers.  We thought Cate Blanchett looked beautiful in her Givenchy Haute Couture gown, but then again is there ever a time when she looks anything else?  The lilac chiffon was gorgeous and the bib neckline encrusted with crystals and pearls was perfectly different.  Her minimal make-up and sleek hair really let her dress do the talking.

 Michelle Williams, another actress who always looks effortlessly beautiful, graced the red carpet in Chanel.  Carrying off, in splendid fashion, a look most of us would avoid, she wowed in a nude, fitted, floor-length, embellished dress.  With a gamine crop and fresh-faced make-up her look ticked all the right boxes.


Purple was definitely high on the agenda for the a-listers, and joining the club in her Dolce and Gabbana, purple lace gown was Scarlett Johansson.  We loved the all-over lace and high neck, and with a figure like Scarlett's it would be a shame not to flaunt it in this gown.


Our all-round favourite of the night was winner Natalie Portman.  Absolutely stunning in a plum (another addition for the purple crew), gown, she showed that style and elegance can still be high priority when pregnant.  Her off-the-shoulder, Grecian-style dress by Rodarte (who designed the costumes for Black Swan), was accessorised with Tiffany & Co jewellery and Jimmy Choo shoes.  Need we say more? Beautiful!
