Oscar Night 2012!

Hello! It's Autumn from MyNameNecklace here to talk about Hollywood's most exciting night of the year, the Oscars. The biggest stars get together to put on their finest clothes to receive the most prestigious of awards. 

Here are some of the best and worst dressed stars of the night:

Kristin Wiig in J. Mendel
I love this dress and Krisitin Wiig looks amazing in it. 
Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace
Angelina Jolie looks as fabulous as ever in this custom-made velvet gown. 
Jessica Chastain in Alexander Mcqueen
This is one of my favorite gown from Mcqueen's Resort collection and Jessica Chastain pulls it off wonderfully. 
Meryl Streep in Lanvin
Only Meryl Streep can pull off this gold and shimmery gown like this one. This gown is the first ever custom made eco-friendly design made by Lanvin. Gorgeous and eco-friendly? The best combination!
Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton 
Personally, I don't love this dress on Michelle Williams. I think she looks a bit too much like a little girl, but the color is great on her and you have to give her props for wearing something so daring. 
Natalie Portman in vintage Dior
I think it's very cool that is wearing vintage Dior from the 1950's, but I just don't love this dress in general. Though it looks great on Natalie Portman and she looks positively radiant. 
Rooney Mara in Givenchy
 I do like this Givenchy dress on Rooney Mara, though it is a bit ill-fitting, perhaps it is due to the fact that she told reporters she had chosen this dress earlier that morning. Although she strayed from her go-to black the style of this dress is very similar to the all they styles she has been wearing on the red carpet lately.
Shailene Woodley in Valentino
This makes me so sad, Shailene Woodley has the gift of youth and she can wear anything under the sun, yet she chooses to wear this Valentino dress which makes her look at least 30 years her senior. The dress on it's own is nice, but Woodley should have definitely chosen a more youthful dress for her big night. 

Berenice Bejo in Elie Saab
Bernice Bejo looks lovely in this seafoam Elie Saab dress. No complaints here!
Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli
This dress is very reminiscent of the gown Nicole Kidman wore to the Oscars in 2007. I can't decide what I think, but I think overall  I like, though she could have done much better. 
Viola Davis in Vera Wang
Everyone seems to love this dress but I... don't? Am I allowed to say that? I think Viola Davis looks so great here but I feel like there are to many things going on with the dress. 
Cameron Diaz in Gucci
Cameron Diaz looks really superb in this Gucci gown.
Milla Jovovich in Elie Saab
Milla Jovovich is the perfect modern take of the old Hollywood look. 
Octavia Spencer in Tadaschi Soshi
Octavia looked absolutely delightful in this form-fitting gown. Clearly white was the color of the night. 
Sandra Bullock in Marchesa
I did not like this Marchesa gown at all! It did not fit her properly and the dress itself was not much to look at.
Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford
I positively adore this custom made dress and cape (!) worn by Gwyneth Paltrow. she always knows how to pick sleek and modern pieces that show off her beauty.


Well, there are some the highs and lows of the biggest night of the year in Hollywood. 

What do you think, do you agree or think there should be additions to the list? Let me know in the comments section! 

Bye for now!
