"Who are you wearing?" #Oscars

Ellen crashed twitter with her selfie before handing out pizza to the nominees, Matthew McConaughey gave the best speech of his life as well as for the night, and the award winning Humanitarian, Angelina Jolie, dons the stage with her beauty and grace to present along side Sidney Poitier while Pink sung her heart out with "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and Pharrell danced with Lupita Nyong'o (before she accepted her first Oscar), Meryl Streep (who finally made it on twitter for the first time via Ellen), and Amy Adams (whose first for the night has yet to be determine). These are just a few top moments during last night's Oscars. But.. the most anticipated and talked about has to be what or who the stars wore. There are so many favorites and opinions floating around already so I figured I would list a few of my own. 

Let's start this off the right way! Giuliana Rancic gets my vote for the best shoes. She wore a pair of Sergio Rossi stilettos while hosting the Red Carpet event. Swoon! (Unfornately, I hate to report that after hours of searching for a photo...there isn't one. But, take my word on it, they were exquisite!)

The first dress that took my breath away on the red carpet was Portia De Rossi. Stunning! Gorgeous! She wore an ivory lace cutout gown designed by Naeem Khan. May I borrow this little piece of body art!? I just love how it is something a little different and unique. 

Kate Hudson was flawless with her side swept hair, looking like her mother, Goldie Hawn,  in a beautiful plunging neckline Versace gown while presenting an award.  I don't think there is another look that can compete overall. 

Amy Adams brought simplicity and elegance while wearing a custom designed navy blue gown by Gucci and accented by Tiffany diamonds. She stated that she wanted to dress for herself. 

Who doesn't love Jennifer Lawrence! She's got to be the most real person to walk the red carpet. That unique necklace... Neil Lane that draped at the back! She also wore Dior in a strapless red gown as she fell...again! Good thing it didn't seem to bother her because Ellen used her falling moments to get a few laughs in during her monologue. 

I absolutely love Maria Menounos's braided updo. Her look was so romantic as she wore a Johanna Johnson beaded dress. She's so beautiful you can't help but want to steal her look. 

For a little bit of dark love..... Charlize Theron wore a satin Dior black dress. A beautiful gown that just worked on her. Very modern chic.

The moment I saw Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves sitting in the audience, it just felt like he was dressed to steal the spotlight with his win! He wore Dolce and Gabanna ivory jacket and black pant suit that paired nicely next to his other half, who wore a blush colored Gabriela Cadena gown.

It seemed that this year I was more drawn to the ivory and cream colors, even down to Ellen's ivory suit designed by Saint Laurent. So, last but not least.... Ellen Degeneres, post scarf that is! Ellen did a spectacular job hosting, and I only hope to see her involved in more things.. After all, she is one of my favorite people in the world! 

No time for worst dressed here....too busy admiring all the extravegent pieces worn to this year's Academy Awards!
