oscar style 2012

Jessica Chastain 

Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen. I think she always looks amazing, but this dress what something very different for her. Typically, she wears a basic dress in a bold color. I'm in love with this on her. She was my favorite of the evening. 

Rooney Mara

Of course I love a girl with an all-black wardrobe, but I thought she still looked effortlessly cool and glamorous in this white gown. She looks like a high-fashion model. Even the too-short bangs suit her, and the bold red lip is divine.

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace
Dramatic and va-va-voom! I love the sexy Brigitte Bardot hair to go with the uber-gorgeous gown. Not only did she look amazing, but it seemed like she had so much fun with this leggy look. 

Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton

On TV this dress looked very red, but online you can actually see it's a lovely coral shade. The ruffles around the waist with the bow are very sweet, but she still looks very elegant and glamorous.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford

The cape worn on the carpet was absolutely stunning. She looked so chic and cool. The dress without the cape was very simple and beautiful and true to Gwyneth's minimalist style. I loved the statement bracelet as well.

Octavia Spencer

Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji

She wore her favorite label that proved to be lucky for her yet again. Her win as well as her look was one of the highlights of the evening for me. Seriously, who didn't shed a tear during her emotional acceptance speech? 

Rose Byrne 

Rose Byrne in Vivienne Westwood 

I don't know if it's her awesome haircut or what, but lately she's always looked amazing. This was another dress that didn't translate correctly in terms of color (it was actually midnight blue in real life), but I still love it. Simply beautiful.

Sofia Coppola 

Sofia Coppola in Yves Saint Laurent

This wasn't exactly at the Oscars, rather the Vanity Fair after party. Regardless, I'm obsessed with Sofia's YSL jumpsuit. Her accessories were spot-on.

Dita von Teese

I'm not sure when Dita doesn't look good, but this is absolutely killer. I love the Elizabeth Taylor-inspired look, and the gown is stunning. 

Shailene Woodley 

Shailene Woodley in Proenza Schouler

I didn't like what she wore to the Oscars at all, but she stepped it up at the after party wearing this fun, age-appropriate Proenza Schouler dress. 



  1. Really great round up, and I agree with a lot of what you said! I love Shailene Woodley in Proenza Schouler, she really redeemed herself. xx

  2. I'm still wondering what was up with Angelina's pose... haha!
