So, real talk. Last night, Julie and I compared notes on the best and worst dressed at the Academy Awards. And we … well, we disagreed on quite a few. But one thing we did agree on was that, by and large, everyone look pretty damn good. So this time around, we’re not doing a worst dressed list. Coming up, we’ve got the women who rocked white and the ladies who went crazy for sequins, two big trends on the red carpet. The 28 ladies in this gallery wore an array of colors, cuts, and embellishments — who was your favorite?

The 2012 Oscars (or The 84th Annual Academy Awards if you’re scouring the DVR listings to find it) are tonight! You’ve probably already made your Oscar pool picks (or plan to root for that one movie you actually saw). But how does your choice for Best Picture reflect on you in the dating pool?
Here is a guide to this year’s nominees and what your Best Pic pick says about you…
This week, Dakota Fanning turned all of 18 years old. Remarkably, so is Courtney Stodden — just some food for thought, if you will, because age is the only thing the two have in common. Dakota’s fresh, preternatural approach to style may have fallen to the back burner since her younger sister’s debut, but I’m bringing back Dakota. This Fashion Week fixture has an easy grace and a look that’s wise beyond her years. Here are her best fashion moments…
How do the stars — well, some of them — spend the night before the Oscars? Celebrating the best of independent cinema, that’s how. The Indie Spirit Awards’ purple carpet is decidedly more casual than the Academy Awards, but stars like Michelle Williams, Rashida Jones, and Elizabeth Olsen still don’t slack off in the style department. Unfortunately, some others do. Check out the good, the bad, and the meh sartorial choices at last night’s fête.
It’s not quite spring yet, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t hide a backless dress underneath a cardigan or sweater. These open-backed dresses highlight an oft-forgotten sexy part of the body. Bring sexy back with your, uh, sexy back with these 10 cute little numbers.
There’s nothing stars love doing more than celebrating themselves and one another. And that’s why right now is prime celeb happiness time. It’s awards season, culminating this Sunday night with the Oscars, and famous folk have been out in full force at various celebratory parties and events hosted by Eva Longoria, Vanity Fair and the like. Still, just because there’s a reason for the season doesn’t mean that everyone’s got their sartorial ducks in a row. (We’re looking at you, Jessica Chastain). Click through to see who hit it, and who’s just a mess.
TGIF! I’m so glad the week has come to an end because that means it’s that much closer to A) Oscar Sunday, my favorite Sunday of the year, and B) Monday, when Winona, our awesome Portland-based staffer, arrives in NYC for the week. Hooray! Here is what we’re wearing today…
Bike shorts. Neon. A kooky ballerina. Headdresses. Fringe. To the stars attending Sunday’s Academy Awards, let these 20 worst Oscar looks ever guide you towards what NOT to do when dressing for your big red carpet moment.
The Academy Awards are on Sunday and in anticipation, I fell into a deep — and at times dark — Oscar dress k-hole. We’ll get to the bad dresses of the past later, but first! The 30 most beautiful and memorable Oscar dresses ever.
