It may have been an evening for slumdogs but the Kodak Theatre was alive with glamour last night with the Hollywood heat of the red carpet at the 81st Oscar Awards.  The official close of awards season last night was sensational as it was bittersweet, as the Oscars recognized the stars from an unforgettable year in film.  The Academy of Motion Pictures  rang in a new and exciting awards show with a unique twist with a flawless performance in this year’s singing host, Hugh Jackman, who looked very handsome in his custom made tux, Burberry shirts and Salavatore Ferragamo shoes.

Celebgawking was in also love with the unique style of this year’s Oscar’s and the vision of pale shades and gorgeous colors that graced the red carpet. Best Supporting Actress winner Penelope Cruz was a fairytale vision  in vintage Balmain, complete with decades of beauty envelped in it’s train. Marissa Tomei’s Versace  had the most amazing pleating and had arrived that morning. Tomei completed the over the shoulder look with jewels by Van Cleef and Arpels. Taraji P Henson’s Roberto Cavalli was like a divine wedding cake with layers of cream softly overlapping another layer of delicious fabric. Anne Hathaway sparkled in a soft white, jewel enrusted  Armani Prive. Evan Rachel Wood also opted for a soft pale cream in her Elie Saab gown.  Meryl Streep fabulous in an off the shoulder grey Alberta Ferretti, that was trailed by a long chiffon train. The over the shoulder steel grey and black embellished, tulle gown by Atelier Yves Saint Laurent by Stefano Pilati was breathtaking on Kate Winslet and entirely appropriate for the lady of the evening.

Miley Cyrus was rocking the red carpet with her mom in a silver and white gown by Zuhair Murhad , which she told Ryan Seacrest  “weighs more than me.”  Some critics felt the dress wore Miley instead of the other way around and that it was a tad too grown up for the tween star. We  loved her dress and felt it was entirely appropriate for the event. It’s the Oscars! Jessica Biel also chose a  a blousy ensemble of satin and cream  by Prada . Presenter Sarah Jessica Parker was a modern day Cinderella in her Haute Couture Dior. We were on the fence with Nominee Amy Adams, who took a big risk with her handsome Caroline Herrera  in bold red. Jennifer Aniston hammed it up with Jack Black for her big Oscar moment in a Versace that certainly did her justice. How else does one hold her head up high at the biggest awards show of the year and your ex and his current babies mama is sitting front and center?  And Mickey Rourke, who has always said he wouldn’t wear a tuexedo, made a unique statement with his white suit, black patent leather shoes and a locket with a picture of his beloved dog Lokie.

We’ve also decided to include the couples that looked amazing because there is nothing better than being photgraphed with great arm candy. Brangelina were regal and gorgeous as usual with Angelina Jolie playing is safe in a black Elie Saab. They convenitenly avoided a run in with Jennifer Aniston after Aniston avoided the red carpet altogethere. On the younger side, Vanessa Hudgens (in Marchesa) and Zac Efron were a breath of fresh air arriving on the carpet at the same time but doing their press seperately. A stunning Freida Pinto chose a vibrant blue gown ( in John Galliano) and a handsome Dev Patel denied rumors of any sort of relationship. John Mayer was a perfect Oscar boyfriend  alongside Jennifer Aniston. Sarah Jessica Parker demured that yes, there may be in fact a sequel to Sex and the City. Was the color on the television off or was handsome Matthew Broderick was sporting a lighter hair color?

  1. Carrie Bradshaw has erupted! OMG! I think A Hathaway was a hit on the red carpet— and I’m just wondering if Miley Cyrus borrowed Amy Adams outfit from Enchanted. sheeesh

  2. […] Penelope Cruz is one of the most talented and beautiful actresses in Hollywood as we speak. But did you know she has a sister equally as talented and equally as gorgeous? (Monica is has her own fashion collection with Mango). Talk about a perfect gene pool. […]

  3. […] Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron are one of our favorite pretty Disney couples. We can’t help but love them. And we have never watched HSM. […]

  4. […] Miley Cyrus spent her holiday overseas in London where she will be performing. She also spent lots of time with her fmaily and invited some friends to keep her company. […]

  5. […] Freida Pinto not only shot to super stardom with Slumdog Millionaire success but she also became a fashion darling in 2009.  Setting new trends at film premieres, award shows and front row on the runway, Freida gave new meaning to “It” gal of the year.  Here she is at the Chanel Autumn/Winter show at Grand Palais during Paris Fashion Week wearing Chanel of course.  […]

  6. Penelope Cruz have that classic beauty look that is very attractive .
