Oscar Outcomes

Can we be completely honest?  We were a little underwhelmed with this year's Oscar dresses.  We kinda thought we did a better job... But, out of the night's looks, we thought the gowns below were the best:

1.  Hilary Swank: Sparkle and feathers?  Perfection.  We gushed over this Gucci Premiere gown when we saw it on the red carpet.
2. Michelle Williams: More than ever, we wish we could pull off a platinum bob.  The Blue Valentine nominee looked angelic in her Chanel Haute Couture gown.  (And she totally wore the stud version of the earrings we originally predicted for her.)
3. Hailee Steinfeld:  Perfectly age-appropriate, and definitely worthy of an Academy Award nominee, this dress by Marchesa truly made us want to run out and buy all of the ballet-inspired pieces we've been seeing this year.
4.  Mila Kunis: Not really the typical "Oscar Gown," this soft and romantic Elie Saab dress (from their Spring 2011 Couture Collection) took our breath away with its violet hue.
5.  Natalie Portman: If a dress could make a pregnant woman glow any more, it would be this one by Rodarte.  And we love the fact that things came full circle on Oscar night, seeing as though they also designed the costumes for Black Swan.
