Oscars 2012: Stars Shinning

Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad

Cameron Diaz in Gucci

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace

Tina Fey in Carolina Herrera

Penelope Cruz in Armani Prive

Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji

White was definitely the color stunning on the red carpet in this year's Oscars. From Gwenyth Paltrow's cape divine by Tom Ford, to Jennifer Lopez's super sultry Zuhair Murad gown, and to Octavia Spencer's sparkling curve flattering Tadashi Shoji number- white with a touch of sparkle conquered the infamous RED CARPET!
I have to admit that I expected colors to take main stage for the red carpet simply because the past few award ceremonies colors exploded worn by the biggest names in the industry. Yet, I was not disappointed at all! Octavia was absolutely beautiful in her Tadashi Shoji gown with sparlking details from head to toe. Octavia's dress hugged her in all the right curves and accentuated the best parts while slimming her all throughout. And of course Jennifer Lopez's low cut bustline and peek-a-boo shoulder detailed Zuhair Murad floor sweeping gown just catapults her into another level of fashion stardom. On a side note, it bothers me to no end when a panel of so-called fashionistas make off the chart comments (specially when it touches a bit of bigotry) and they themselves have no style! So E! Red Carpet please choose your panel better next time!!
Simple yet attention commanding Gwenyth Paltrow's Tom Ford cape structured dress was so elegant and just gave Gwenyth such a statuesque figure.
Who can forget a long standing member of the 'best-dressed' club Angelina Jolie. Her thigh high slit Atelier Versace velvet black gown was another 'frills-free' ensemble I found sultry but understated, and solidifies Angelina's 'best-dressed' crown.
Several note worthy stars and dresses were that of Glen Close in her forest green Zac Posen gown with a corset top, I felt she could have done without the jacket, but otherwise a great look. Another is Cameron Diaz in Gucci and Tina Fey in her Carolina Herrera peplum dress. Penelope Cruz also looked divine in her Armani Prive gown in soft powder blue, but I would of liked for it to be cleaner and done without the wrap detail in the bustline going around, if it were more of a corsetted top I think it would of made a world of difference.
Overall, the expected 'best-dressed' came and reigned for another Oscars night, and happily we can add a full figured talent like Octavia Spencer into the mix to give the other ladies a run for their 'crown'.
