The following are some of my favorite red carpet moments.
BRAVO! to E personalities rocking the red carpet:
Host Maria Menounos, wearing a breathtaking Maria Lucia Hohan mint green dress and Jacob and Co. diamonds.
here is another view of that gorgeous draping - click on images for larger view.
Also, Giuliana Rancic in Tony Ward.
Gwyneth Paltrow classic and understated. She was not a nominee. In Tom Ford and Jimmy Choo shoes.
Rooney Mara in a white lace Givenchy gown and Fred Leighton ring.
Elie Kemper’s rust-colored Armani Prive, matching her hair perfectly and Gold Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
George Clooney in Giorgio Armani with his own golden goddess, Stacy Keibler wearing Marchesa.
Viola Davis in an emerald green strapless Vera Wang.
LOVED the color of Michelle Williams's Louis Vuitton strapless gown. She wore Christian Louboutins, Bottega Venetta bag. Forevermark and Fred Leighton jewels.
Sorry Joan Rivers, you fail on 2 points; will not repeat your comment about vintage fashions but Natalie Portman rocks in Vintage Dior Haute Couture. Too bad I didn't see more vintage on the red carpet.
Another mama who rocked the red carpet. I can see why she would pose with her leg extended. Black is very difficult to photograph and the slit would have been lost. Angelina Jolie is wearing a black velvet Atelier Versace strapless gown and Neil Lane jewels.
I heard the entire family took part in choosing the gown by placing the names of all the designers in a hat.
Milla Jovovich in Elie Saab Haute Couture one-shoulder gown. Jacob & Co. jewelry and Edie Parker clutch. Always the modern twist on vintage vamp hair, make-up. I'm a big fan.
A favorite Academy Awards moment, Anne Marie Calhoun playing violin with the band. She has performed with a few of my favorites.
Congratulations Anne Marie!
I have a new 'to watch' list thanks to the Academy Awards. War Horse was already on it but Im unable to see it on the big screen because when it comes to animals and children I'm usually a sniffling puddle. I'd rather spare the public. The Help was already on it as My Week With Marilyn.
New to the list; Hugo and all of the following documentaries; God Is The Bigger Elvis, The Barber of Birmingham, Saving Face - a movie about women who are victims of men who don’t value women and seem to hate them. The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom.
I leave you with Anne Marie playing with Widespread Panic.
