My Picks for the Red Carpet at the Academy Awards 2011

The only reason I watch the Oscars are for the fashion. No one was a perfect 10, but quite a few were pretty close. Here are a few who stood out for me:

Amy Adams shined in this gown by L'Wren Scott. My only negative to this would be the necklace. I think she should have worn statement earrings and let the dress stand out on it's own. The necklace that I am not so fond of was the most expensive piece of jewelry worn to the show-$1.35 million to be exact, by Cartier. She was criticized for all the sparkle, but if there is any moment for you to shine, wouldn't it be this one?

Helen Mirren is also dripping in Cartier jewels this evening along with a Vivienne Westwood Couture gown. I just feel like this lady knows how to dress for her body type perfectly. She always looks fantastic to me. 65 years old and still rockin' it! Love!

I have no idea who this guy is, but he looks darn good in a tux!

I just adore Halle Berry as she usually nails her formal gowns, but this one I'm having some mixed feelings about. This crystal encrusted Marchesa gown is so beautiful on the top half, but the bottom half seems somewhat of an afterthought. So close.....

I thought this Calvin Klein dress was stunning. The deep plunging needlepoint neckline and the slim body hugging dress is perfect on Gwyneth. Minimalist perfection!

It is so hard to look good when you have this huge bowling ball in front of you(trust me, I know, I've been there!). But Natalie Portman does an amazing job of making herself not even look pregnant in a floor sweeping dress by Rodarte. Gorgeous deep purple color, jeweled wide off the shoulder V neckline and delicate purple bead fringe earrings by Tiffany & Co.

I thought they were the best looking couple of the night!

Mila Kunis is lovely in this lilac Elie Saab dress. Dress has a very deep scoop neckline accented with bits of lace on the bosom and the tiered lace that cascades down her body. The higher waistline works perfectly with her straight hips, making her legs seem longer. Her confidence and attitude along with the dress doesn't hurt either!
