Academy Awards Red Carpet 2018

The ladies looked lovely last night at the Oscars.
Here are my favorites in no particular order. 
I haven't picked my fave yet....I will by the end of the post!

Mary J. Blige

Her perfect figure and amazing fit!  I love the bodice.

Here is director Greta Gerwig, she wrote and directed Lady Bird.
She did not win but she was so very happy for the other winners.
I love this dress.

Gina Rodriguez wearing a gorgeous gown?
She is perfection.  That smile!

Margot Robbie looked stunning in her Chanel dress.  Sorry for the crummy picture.  It was hard to find a good picture that showed the details of her very white dress.   
I would sit in something, like chocolate on the way to the show, or splatter spaghetti sauce on this dress.  One hundred percent.

The announcers lost their minds when Nicole Kidman walked up.  They thought her dress was the most fabulous thing they ever saw.  I love the fabric, fit, shoes, color, cut....
I loved everything...but the bow.
It's so Dynasty.  

Flash from the past!
BTW...I think I saw Joan Collins at the show!

I love this pretty dress on Alison Williams.

Elie Saab.  I will always find an Elie Saab dress to love.
This gal is Zoey Deutch.  I don't know who she is.  But love her style.

Young Zendaya wore one of the most unique dresses and colors.
I LOVE this!! 
Beautiful bracelet too!
Stunning makeup.  

This is Gal Gadot aka Wonder Woman.
This dress moved beautifully.  That's fringe at the bottom.
Her necklace is perfection.

My favorite ball gown was worn by Mira Sorvino.  She has not been on the scene lately.  But I seem to remember that she has GREAT taste and wears clothes wonderfully.

In a year of whites and nudes and blushes....

I think my favorite dress was Greta's lovely yellow dress by Rodarte.
A sunny yellow sparkly dress is a pretty sight as March roars in this morning.

Happy Red Carpet friends!

What dresses did you like?

  1. I loved Jennifer Garner's as well as Greta and Mira's. I am one of the few weird ones that loved Kelly Ripa's too. I thought it was gorgeous! But I am a sucker for a ball gown!

    1. I agree, Jennifer Garner looked amazing! I also liked Kelly Ripa's, but perhaps she's a bit petite for it.

  2. My fav, when I first looked this a.m., was Mira Sorvino. I like all your choices, except Margo Robbie. I just don't like the shoulder thingies.

    All day, I've been looking forward to your post. Thanks!

    I recognize Nicole and Mira and the rest of the lovely ladies are new to me. This is what happens when a person stops watching cable TV. ;-) My favorite dress is Mira's, but I also like Alison Williams' dress. Thanks Donna for my fashion fix! love and prayers, jep

  4. Great choices as always, fashion guru Miz Boo. Loved Greta’s yellow and she did look so glowingly happy every time she showed up onscreen. Jennifer Garner’s bright blue was lovely, as well as Emily Blunt’s powder blue. Emily’s was rather old-fashioned, but Cinderalla-y enough to be beautiful. Also loved that Rita Moreno wore the same dress she wore to the Oscars decades ago. How cool is that?

    I think Gal is my favorite on this list. Would be Nicole Kidman if it wasn't for the bow. Will have to Google Jennifer Garner and Kelly Ripa's. I didn't get to watch last night. ~Kristi in LV

    Shockingly I loved Miley Cyrus' after party dress. I never thought I'd like anything she wore but it was a gorgeous silk, almost 40s throwback dress.

  7. Zendaya is stunning. That dress color is gorgeous! I almost always 100% agree with your choices. :)

  8. Hi Donna! I love it when you do this. 😊 We had no power so I wasn't able to see all the pretty dresses. I was looking online and decided that Jennifer Garner's is my favorite.

    Hope you keep posting. I've missed reading your thoughts on life. 😊

  9. Mira Sorvino and Nicole Kidman are the only two actresses I have heard of. I don't go to a lot of movies anymore. I loved Mira's dress. The prettiest one in my opinion.
