The Best of the Best!

(NEW YORK) The awards circuit’s biggest evening of the year has come to an end—and let the fashion policing begin! Though the drame of years past seemed to be missing at last night’s red carpet, there were still plenty of beauties to choose from. Behold, The Daily’s Best Dressed!
The Spanish starlet and nominee for Nine has favored flashier Versaces in the past, but the scarlet Donna Karan gown worn last night was no less showstopping. And though her penchant for nude shades (remember that vintage Balmain?) works beautifully with her olive skin, we think this is a breakthrough: red is your color, darling!
Saldana’s voluminous Givenchy Haute Couture was arguably the most dramatic look of the night—and the gamble paid off. Though Saldana’s often been inclined towards Calvin Klein’s cleaner silhouettes, this was her night—even if Avatar didn’t take the big prize.
Diane Kruger had a lot to live up to after the show-stopping marigold Jason Wu gown worn to the Golden Globes, but who can argue with Karl’s couture? (Especially considering that Kruger is one of Karl’s favorite pets—and his neighbor in Paris!) The cream and black Chanel dress was pure Coco-inspired loveliness.
There’s no arguing about it: this was Sandra Bullock’s night. After sporting everything from Bottega Veneta and Alexander McQueen to recent red carpets, what she would wear last night was anybody’s guess, but the first-time Oscar winner absolutely stunned in this liquid gold Marchesa column.
My, how this Mean Girl has grown up! Seyfried’s sweeping Armani Privé gown was a stunning choice to the alabaster-skinned beauty—and certainly a more appropriate choice than the more scandalously plunging Armani she wore at a recent premiere. (Armani has been going a bit Gaga lately…)
The statuesque blonde split the votes with this lavender floral-bosomed column by Dior, but we know where we stand. It’s toujours Dior for Theron, which makes it hard to go wrong—and after all, would the Arnaults lead her astray?
She’s held fashion followers captive in recent months with daring choices by Nina Ricci, Bottega Veneta, and Vionnet (the latter of which shared a similar short in the front, long in the back hemline), but Mullian’s relatively simple black Prada was a perfect way to make a grown-up Academy debut.
Quintessential California girl Cameron went uptown chic to the Oscars (in Oscar!) this year. Of course, the longer hair and the red lip added to the glam factor, but there’s no doubt that the silver-spangled gown was the pièce de resistance.
McAdams may have just been a presenter at last night’s ceremony, but she looked every inch the leading leady in Elie Saab Haute Couture. Print on the red carpet is not for the faint of heart, but the Sherlock Holmes star pulled off the pastel, watercolor pattern with aplomb.
