Fashiona's Red Carpet Review: Oscars 2011

Fashion wise, Fashiona deemed the Oscars 2011 as one of best years in quite some time. Shades of purple were all over the Red Carpet, breaking up the long line of "safe" black dresses. 

The fashion parade was so delightful  in fact that she could not decide who won the Best Dressed (hence the delay in this post). 

Even the "bad" fashion was appealing in a cheeky way....

Best example was Helen Bonham Carter who seems to relish in her reputation as an eccentric (tacky) dresser.  Her Colleen Atwood Victorian style black corset-style velvet and taffeta dress was beautifully done...it was the Union Jack flag tied to her calf, garter style that really made headlines.

Jennifer Hudson made the Huffington Post Worst Dressed list...but Fashion disagrees.   Her Versace tomato color taffeta dress was daring...especially for her.  Now her hair was another story....the late Ray Charles could have done a better job fixing those roots...

Gwenyth Paltrow, who was way too thin to wear that cat suit she wore for the Golden Globes, went back to a more "Gwennie" type look.  The iridescent Calvin Klein gown fit her lean physique perfectly.

Scarlett Johansson's gown was unexpected for her...loved the plum color and the cut out back...very Dolce and Gabbana.

 Camila Alves (the Brazilian model girlfriend of Matthew McConaughey) looked the part of a Hollywood diva of yesteryear in Kaufman Franco.

Halle Berry was breathtaking...as usual.  She tends to wear Elie Saab a lot but went with Marchesa instead. 

Natalie Portman is easily winning the Best Dressed Preggers award, she chose a pretty shade of plum purple by Rodarte. 

Black Swan's Mila Kunis chose Elie Saab and as George Kotsiopoulos, co-host of E!'s Fashion Police,  predicted during Fashiona's interview with him last week, was on most of the Best Dressed Lists.  

Mila completely nailed Red Carpet: just enough sparkle, hair pulled back to show off her features and the lilac color choice...perfect.
