Any other award show night, you would have found me in front of the TV watching the Red Carpet Live on E!, but last night, N + I headed over to a  neighbors house to enjoy a home-cooked meal (& margs!) with some friends. Unfortunately, the Red Carpet was not the talk of the night. It was turned on & muted, but I found a way to get my fashion fix from the table, duh!

BEST DRESSED: Jennifer Garner & Naomi Watts

Jennifer Garners beautiful plum Gucci strapless dress was the perfect amount of business in the front + party in back (as tweeted by Fabulous K). I loved the simple diamond necklace that accompanied her dress perfectly.

Naomi Watts, was absolutely gorgeous in her Armanin Prive gown. This blue & silver statement dress was the perfect amount of bold & her barely-there-shoulder + simple up-do made it classy.

UNIMPRESSED: Jennifer Aniston & Nicole Kidman

Jennifer Aniston's strapless Valentino dress + straight hair just did not do it for me. She is such a beautiful woman, but I feel like the dress & hair were a little too simple for the Oscars.

Nicole Kidman, oh my shimmer, eek! I am really not sure about this dress, period. Black + gold are such a fabulous color combination in my book, but with the odd shimmering & contouring of the dress, I kinda retract my love for black + gold. 

CUTEST COUPLE: Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck

This couple seriously radiates with love. When Ben got up to do is statement speech, oh my heart. His honesty about (their) marriage truly makes him even more of a wonderful man, because no marriage/relationship is easy -- even for all those celebrities that claim it is. I commend them for working through their problems not only for themselves but for their three beautiful children.

BEST BABY BUMP: Jenna Dewan-Tatum, with hunk Channing Tatum

Ok, so I love baby bumps, like alot! So I could not include them! I mean, how friggin' cute are they? Channing he is a hunk all by himself, but the two of them put together is beautiful. Her baby bump was dressed in a lovely lace gown that was so becoming on her. 


How stylish is this Giambattista Valli Couture dress that Diane Kruger is wearing with her Christian Louboutin shoes, Neil Lane jewels, and a Jaeger-LeCoultre watch? I am in love + want it all.

What are your best + unimpressed of the night?
