And the Oscar goes to... and DIY Natalie's Tassle Earrings

The Oscars have come and gone again. Luckily I caught the red carpet coverage and made mental notes on who's outfits I really liked and then we were able to catch the condensed version thanks to my inlaws and their Tivo. Love skipping the boring acceptance speechs and getting down to the good stuff.

Sandra Bullock is simply elegant in a strapless scarlet Vera Wang gown. The simple updo, crocodile clutch, and ruby red lips complete her look.

Reese Witherspoon

Reese is very remniscent of 60's Hollywood glamour Barbie in a black-and-white Giorgio Armani Prive column gown and high ponied ‘do.

Jennifer Hudson
Jennifer glows in a tasty tangerine Versace halter gown. She looks great- love the jewels!

Halle Berry
Halle looks magical in her sparkling crystal encrusted Marchesa gown.

Natalie Portman
Natalie looks stunning in her jewel tone dress, Jimmy Choo's, and Tiffany's tassel earrings. I love the way this fits and showcases her new mommy curves so nicely. If you LOVE her tassel earrings, check out the DIY below.

Hilary Swank

Hilary, two-time Oscar winner, pulled off this strapless Gucci stunner. Who else could look this good in feather and sparkling metallic accents?

Hailee Steinfeld

This Best Supporting Actress nominee picked a winner. This pale pink Marchesa frock was a perfect choice for her first trip along the Oscars red carpet. Eye catching details on the modest bodice and a simple ankle grazing skirt make this an age appropriate gown for the 14 year old star.  It's been reported that she even helped Marchesa design this one-of-a-kind creation. She may not have won for BSA- I thought she was great in "True Grit"- but I'm sure we'll be seeing more of her in the future.

Mila Kunis
Mila was a vision of beauty in her lovely lavender lace Elie Saab gown. Her simple do' with sideswept bangs and diamond earrings completed her ethereal ensemble.

Matthew McConaughey and wife Camila Alves

Matthew dons  Dolce & Gabbana. While his wife, Camila Alves, looks fab in a Kaufman Franco gown.

Cheryl Hines

The "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star shimmered in her black sweetheart gown, which she accessorized with a glam diamond necklace and a casual updo.

Erin Andrews

Erin shines in her silver Kaufman Franco dress.

Anne Hathaway
The Oscars co-host wow's in a simple red vintage Valentino bustle gown. I love the ruffled rose detailing on the bustle.
Amy Adams

“The Fighter’s” Best Supporting Actress nominee sparkled in this form-fitting midnight blue L’Wren Scott gown and emerald-and-diamond Cartier jewels. The dress and diamonds perfectly set off her strawberry blond locks and creamy white complexion.

Scarlett Johansson

The newly single and ready to mingle. Scarlet in her risqué Dolce & Gabbana magenta lace gown and sexy bedhead hair.
Mandy Moore
Doesn't Mandy's nude, crystal-encrusted Monique Lhuillier gown look very similar to both Halle and Hailee's gowns? The bodice and the skirt of the gown are lovely. However the transition from bodice to waist is not very flattering to her figure.

Celine Dion

Although Celine Dion just gave birth to twin boys last October, you’d never know it! She's looking sleek in her Armani Privegown. Loose locks and a Van Cleef & Arpels necklace completed her ensemble.

Maria Menounos

The "Access Hollywood" correspondent played it safe in a black velvet Johanna Johnson one-sleeved number, which she set off with an attention-grabbing piece of bling.

Donald and Melania Trump

The Donald rocked his signature coif, while wife Melania made the scene in a Dolce & Gabbana gown.

Annette Bening

"The Kids Are All Right" Best Actress nominee scored top marks on the red carpet thanks to her sparkling Art Deco gown by Naeem Khan.

Dale Dickey

The "Winter's Bone" star,  sparkled in a blue dress that accentuated her fit figure.

My two fave parts of course were:

The opening to the Oscars

Anne was adorable in this. Love her dance of the brown duck.

and then of course the auto-tuned HP/ToyStory/Twilight song

It got me singing You're my tiny ball of light... lol

What were your favorite moments and looks of the night?
