Oscar 2011- The ladies who ruled the red carpet..



The week started on a very glamorous note this morning , what with all the beautiful stars strutting their stuff on the red carpet. Though there wasn't too much color out there, the shimmer, beads, lace and tulle more than made up for it. Here's a round-up of the stars who shone....

The gorgeous Mila Kunis in a low-cut lacy lavender Elie Saab gown was the hands-down winner..it should be illegal for someone to be this beautiful. Her hair and makeup were perfect as were the jewels. Though I wish she had chosen to wear something other than lavender on her feet as well.




The ever so stunning Cate Blanchette, never one to play it safe, really rocked this unusual and heavily beaded Givency Haute Couture gown. I was on the fence about this one initially, but the more I see it the more it appeals to me. And truth be told, only Cate could have done justice to it and she sure did!




The hostess for the ceremony...the young and vivacious and utterly gorgeous, Anne Hathaway in one of her many glamorous avatars for the night in this beaded corset style Givency number....a stunner!




Soft, barely there color and lots of shimmer were the way to go for crooner Mandy Moore ,ethereal  in Monique Lhuillier gown...




...as well as for Halle Berry who shone in this tulle trimmed creation from Marchesa.



I loved Anne in this silver heavily-fringed Oscar de la Renta one-shoulder gown...she had an almost perfect wardrobe for the night!



 

Annette Bening's gunmetal -colored shimmery Naeem Khan gown fit her like a glove and was perfectly accessorised with emerald drops in her ears...




 There were some really vibrant colors too...

I absolutely loved Scarlett Johansson  in this lacy, berry-hued Dolce & Gabbana gown with a cut-out back.She looked radiant...I loved her fresh dewy make-up and that messy choppy bob. Infact it was one of my favourite looks from the red carpet.




 Natalie Portman was a winner all the way in this plum -colored Rodarte gown and her advanced pregnancy only added to her luminous visage...




 Amy Adams' red hair was perfectly offset by this shimmery deep blue gown by L'Wren Scott...I loved the demure neckline...





Last year's best actress winner, Sandra Bullock was a stunner in a bright red structured gown from Vera Wang...seems like she can do no wrong on the red carpet these days!!




Before she changed into numerous outfits, Anne made her red carpet appearance in this gorgeous vintage Valentino gown. She carries it very well but something is off about her hair...




Last but not the least, Reese Witherspoon, who channelled some 60's chic in this simple and classy black and white Georgio Armani Prive' number and a high ponytail..



Who were your red-carpet winners...I would love to know!!

My fav was Mila Kunis. Absolutely gorgeous! She was followed by Scarlett Johansson and Mandy Moore- both looked so lovely. Didn't quite like Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett's dresses. Sandra's appearance was too severe but Cate looked younger and more beautiful than I have ever seen her..

I find Cate stunning...there's something so powerful yet serene about her appearance and i love the fact that she always takes risks with her roles as well as her red carpet couture!thanks for swinging by Jaya!!
