"A couturier must be an architect for design, a sculptor for shape, a painter for color, a musician for harmony, and a philosopher for temperance." ~ Cristobal Balenciaga

Golden Girl

Dear Readers,

I had hoped to have this posted a little sooner, but c'est la vie, as they say ;)

Celebrities showed up for the 84th Academy Awards in every colour under the sun, including black and white.  There were metallic lovelies and some red stunners, as well as many pretty pastels and nudes, jewel tones and brights, with some total wild cards thrown into the mix.  The green carpet eco trend was also still going strong with some gorgeous designs.  As promised, here are all of my picks for favourite dresses from the Oscars.  I've included gowns seen both on the Oscars red carpet, as well as at the Vanity Fair after party.

this dress is a winner!
