My favorite Oscar red carpet gowns

I normally don't get excited by the red carpet fashion scene, but this year is an exception. With my favorite two designers shining with the stars, I feel that I have to share my joy with you.

Here are my faovorite outfits:

3. Reese Witherspoon in Nina Ricci

It's Nina Ricci, and it is Nina Ricci by Olivier Theyskens! Olivier is born to make breathtaking gowns, and his talent is second to none.

My only complaint is that dark purple is not Reese's best color. The color also faded away with the Oscar stage background. A simple Olivier grey would have done the perfect job!

2. Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive

Cate can pull off anything, but this Armani Prive gown is the best color she could possibly choose. With the metallic shine, the gown looked very relavant to what is happening in the fashion world now. To be honest with you, I didn't even think that it could be an Armani gown because Armani was always boring to me, including the Prive couture line. (if you don't believe me, look at Zhang Ziyi's Armani gowns. Don't they all look the same?)

1. Nicole Kidman in Balenciaga

Nobody asked her whom that dress was by, but us fashion lovers knew it was Balenciaga. To me, the metallic red trims and the way it fits the body were 100% Balenciaga. The red color made her radiant, and the bow added a twist. It's a home run. Congratulations to both Nicole and Nicolas! (Good luck to the runway show Tuesday!)

As usual, you have great taste! It's so exciting to see Olivier being so successful at Nina Ricci without even having shown a collection, isn't it!?

Definitely, Ian. I can also see how Nina Ricci is working hard on their marketing, which shows dedication to Olivier. I can't wait for the Nina Ricci show!

Reese's gown is by far the best! I love her hair as well!

reese's dress was great, but i can't stand reese. if she really is the embodiment of nina ricci's "cool girl", i don't think i'm going to be much of a fan of nina ricci. i personally can't see her wearing anything from the fall 07 collection at all, which is a good thing.

My vote goes to Reese Witherspoon. Very elegant on a simple straight cut gown. Her beauty fits on the style and color of her gown
