Oscars: Best Dressed
For the first time in a long time, it seemed there were far more hits than misses on the red carpet last night. Our editors share their picks.
Garrett Munce: Hailee Steinfeld—Adorable and age appropriate.
Kathy Lee: Jennifer Lawrence—Loved the red on her and how it fit her perfectly. Sometimes it’s just about how the dress fits and if it fits right it can look phenomenal. And Jennifer Lawrence did.
Kathy Lee: Cate Blanchett—This woman can do no wrong in my book. She is simply beautiful and only she can pull off that Givenchy Haute Couture without looking like the dress was wearing her.
Carolyn Tate Angel: Michelle Williams—Simply divine and elegant.
Karin Nelson: Sharon Stone—It’s nice to see her looking glamorous again.
Karin Nelson: Amy Adams—Loved the Veronica Lake hair, and the blue looked beautiful on her.
Virginia VanZanten: Anne Hathaway’s many on-stage incarnations (including that tux). It seems Rachel Zoe kill it, yet again.
Virginia VanZanten: Helen Mirren for being age-appropriate and still incredibly foxy.
Virginia VanZanten: I did a double-take when Mandy Moore hit the red carpet in Monique Lhuiller—such a sophisticated choice.
And finally, the runaway success (she topped almost everyone’s list): Gwyneth Paltrow
Will Kahn: Gwyneth looked flawless, impeccable fit, great color and the perfect ultra straight hair.
Nora Milch: The neckline on this Calvin Klein Collection dress is amazing—and no one could wear it better than Gwyneth. Plus I love that she wears her hair in an effortless straight down do.
