oscar red carpet favorites

Gooooood morning! I cannot believe I am up this early writing this, as I stayed awake till the bitter end last night for the twist!! I am more of a red carpet gal for sure, but I cannot get over last night's show! So much calling beautiful politics, so much lovely drama, an overall great show.

And really quickly, I didn't see all the best picture noms, but of those I did see (Arrival, La La Land, Manchester by the Sea, Moonlight), Moonlight was the clear winner for me. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly suggest doing so as soon as possible. Such an incredible story told beautifully.

But you're not here for a recap of the show or a review of the films, are you? No way. Without further ado, here are my favorite red carpet looks from last night!

This look is a lot, and yet I cannot take my eyes off of her. The styling is so exceptional; her simple hair, the muted coral lip, the beautiful necklace. She is flawless.

Hands down best look of the night, not even up for discussion. This was her Oscar's moment, and she did it so beautifully. There was some debate, but the dress is navy and custom made for her. Her necklace!! Her tousled hair! And I love the tiny pop of color in her emerald ring. Perfection.

Another styling win! Love the dusty red around her eyes, and her yellow shoes! She looks incredible.

Damn, he looks great. Love the color of this tux, and love the vintage inspired elements of it. The skinny bowtie, the large button, the lapels.

Such a subtle nod to the 70's without feeling costume-y. I love when guys take risks on the carpet. This tux fits his vibe and personality, IMHO.

Best dressed guy of the night for me. This look took me by surprise in a beautiful way - the black on black is so simple and yet it makes such a huge impact. 

By the way, my criteria for best dressed is just a great gut feeling I get when I'm watching - it's not based on anything else. I didn't expect to love the guys so much last night but I was pleasantly surprised!

And that is all I've got for you.
