85th Annual Academy Awards Fashion Trends

There were waaay too many gorgeous dresses on the red carpet to make an Oscar's Best and Worst Dressed list so, I figured I would show you guys what was so fabulous this year!  There were three trends that really stuck out to me: Column Dresses, Dramatic Skirts, and Glitz!

Sexy and chic, the column dress style was a big winner at this year's Oscars.  It's a very elegant cut that lends itself to texture and color with out fear of having a dress look over the top!  From Left to Right: Kerry Washington in Miu Miu. I love the color and that sweet bow was just enough!  Her dress also had a train which was a nice touch.  Stacy  Keibler wowed in the Naeem Khan studded dress. I love the neckline and the back of it is to die for as well.  Jessica Chastain wore a nude Armani gown. This dress has been on everyone's radar.  Sandra Bullock wore one of my favorite designers- Elie Saab. The lace and beading is just amazing on her.

Drama, drama, drama to the floor. I was so delighted to see these fun skirt options.  I personally will be wearing a mermaid cut dress in the near future ;).  This is a fun way to add some pizzazz to an otherwise drab dress.  First we have the lovely Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta.  I love the layered tulle skirt. Its absolutely beautiful.  Jennifer Garner's dress was my favorite!  This Gucci gown was right on the money with color and flair. I also love that she wore a sapphire ring. It's a great accent.  The Dior Haute Couture gown worn by Jennifer Lawrence is an exaggerated mermaid style. This is a dress that will be iconic for sure.  Kristen Stewart wore a Reem Acra dress. I didn't care much for the entire dress itself but I do love the lower skirt area. It is very unexpected and I think it gave the dress some personality.

It can't be a Hollywood party with out some glitz! Sequins, beading, and high sheen fabrics can really kick a boring design to the next level. Any how, I think all four of these dresses were great and sparkle is all the rage!  Nicole Kidman's dress was very unique but I loved it. The L'Wren Scott sequins gown pushed the limits.  Adele looked gorgeous in this Jenny Packham dress.  It's a lovely silhouette and the beading made a suttle statement.  Jennifer Hudson looked awesome. I love this color on  her and not pictured is a lovely front slit. Bravo Roberto Cavalli! Last but definitely not least is the breath taking Catherine Zeta Jones. This dress landed spots on some worst dressed list but I think it's rather nice!  The detailing on this Zuhair Murad dress is nothing to sneeze at in my opinion.
