Oscars 2011: Best Of Dresses

Hi, the red carpet before the Oscars gala is not only a huge society event but probably also the publicly most recognized fashion show of the year with the stars as the models for the top international designers, if you will.

Every dress is a jewel, also literally speaking, according to the High Cost of Oscar styling on Yahoo Shine every gown is worth something between 5.000 to 15.000 dollars, and that is only for the dress ;) Amazing, isn't it?

Here are my favorite dresses (in-page navigation):

Comments ♥ ♥

Mila wore my favorite dress, but Cate Blanchett came in at a close second. Also, I think Jennifer Hudson's dress could have been amazing, but her breasts just looked really smooshed and awkward.

@Chelsea: Interesting view, I find her cleavage really sexy. Also thought about judging only on the fashion, but decided to include the overall look and how well a dress suited the person's character. But of course, it is subjective.
