Oscar Standouts!

While watching the Academy Awards, there were a few moments on the Red Carpet that really made me stop in my keyboard tracks to stare, shout, ogle, etc... Those jaw-dropping moments all started with the following:

Mila Kunis! Wow. AMAZING! She was pure perfection in this Parisian draped, lilac tiered-lace Elie Saab Couture gown.

Keeping on the lilac perfection trend, can we just take a moment to appreciate the exquisiteness that is Cate Blanchett in this lilac chiffon, embroidered, pearl-bauble encrusted Givenchy gown

There were only two gowns that really took my breath away and this flowy and pretty, yet structured and artistic gown had me gasping for air.

After the first two Standouts the remaining Oscar attendees didn't really stand much of a chance, but there were a few that tried... Both Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicole Kidman impressed me with their gown choices. Nicole opted for a white Christian Dior column gown with silver embroidered bustier and a Kimono-inspired leaf-motif sash. The stark white gown avoided looking bridal thanks to all the excessories, namely those poppy-red Pierre Hardy peep toes. And then there's Gwyneth's sleek gold Calvin Klein dress that she complimented with her pin straight blonde tresses and glowing tan.

Reese Witherspoon looked like a Glamour-Movie Barbie doll from the 60s thanks to that high ponytail and classic black and white strapless Armani Privé dress, which she paired with a notable trend of the evening, emeralds.

Hailee Stedman looks like a ballerina princess in a blush tea-length, crystal encrusted Marchesa gown. A beautiful breath of fresh hair and has been a consistent winner on the Red Carpet!

Amy Adams encrusted sequined sapphire blue Lauren Scott gown grew on me more and more as the night continued on, especially once I saw it on-stage. It was beautifully complimented by her hair, and the emerald jewellery was an unexpected touch.

Jennifer Hudson continues to shock and amaze with her size... and her plunging tangerine Atelier Versace gown ensured she was not overlooked. The colour was great on her, and besides her shoving the only reminder of her previous size behind that halter top she looked great. It'd be nice, however, if she treated the girls with a little more respect and appreciation.

Hilary Swank was barely shown on the screen during the Red Carpet special, which is unfortunate considering how beautiful her ombre feather Gucci Premiere gown was.

Penelope Cruz just had a baby. Really? Seriously!? I have never found her exceptionally attractive, what-so-ever, until now. She looked glowing (and delightfully busty) in a L'Wren Scott gown. I could have done without the sequined flames sparking down the skirt, however.

Mark Ruffalo's wife Sunrise Coigney stood out for multiple reasons: the first being her hair, whether good or bad, the sleek bob really grabbed my attention, the second of course was the one-sleeve, shoulder volumizer, the third was her gold boob... which I didn't realize until seeing the photos that her dress was actually split down the side and it wasn't just the boob that was gold, her entire left side got the golden treatment.
