Glamorate It: 2009 Oscars Red Carpet

It was a wonderful Oscar show tonight — intimate, interesting, thoughtful, entertaining. I was delighted for Kate Winslet and for Slumdog Millionaire. And how about that Hugh Jackman?! But let's face it: as much as we love the show, most of us are in it for the dresses. The Oscar gowns this year were fabulous, almost across the board. I loved every second of the red carpet. My favorite was perhaps Marisa Tomei's Versace gown, which only arrived from Italy today. What did you think?

Really, Beyonce, really?? That is just not good.

House of Dereon is her own label, but that design was just ghastly. The fabric choice alone! The pattern! And that looked like upholstery weight fabric, which made it so the mermaid tail bunched out and couldn't really fall down in folds. Such an unfortunate dress choice.

I heart Marion Cottilard. I thought she looked fabulous, like a winner herself. I also liked SJP's dress.

I agree Marisa Tomei's may be favortite but I also love Angelina Jolie's. I cant stand Beyonce's and Miley Cyrus's. Yuck.
