The Oscars is one of the most anticipated events in Hollywood. This is the award show of all award shows; the most glamorous event of the year. This year was no exception as stars dazzled on the red carpet. Gowns and bling were bigger than ever!

On major trend on the red carpet was big, bold and colored bling. This is in tune with my previous post about statement jewelry. Bold accessories are a great way to update an outfit, or add interest to a look. Obviously the jewelry seen at the Oscars isn't in anyone's budget, but costume jewelry is an acceptable alternative.

Best dressed in my opinion was Penelope Cruz in Vintage Balmain. I LOVE vintage gowns, and I thought this gown was flawless on her! Runner up would be Angelina Jolie, who looked perfect (as always) in a simple, yet chic, black gown by Elie Saab. Her oversize emerald earrings were the perfect compliment for the gown. I also think Marissa Tomei deserves an honorable mention.

On the worst dressed list is Beyonce wearing House of Dereon. From the print, to the style I thought this dress was just all wrong. I was also not impressed by Vanessa Hudgens or Miley Cyrus. Both gowns were too much for girls of their age -- although I give them credit for dressing elegantly instead of too sexy on the red carpet!
