The award shows are a favorite of mine, more for the fashionable red carpet than the actual awards, if I'm being honest. This year's Oscars Red Carpet was no exception. I tuned in for the fashionable and live tweeted with my friends on what we liked, didn't like, what worked for some, and things that really didn't work at all. In my Oscar 2015 fashion recap, I'm looking back on some of my favorite fashions of the evening. Sometimes you just need one awesome detail to make a gown. Gwyneth Paltrow looked good in the Ralph and Russo blush colored gown. It's very simple, but oh so elegant!Blue is my favorite color and this blue and gold ensemble looked so great on Rita Ora.Common was extra dapper in Prada. What's not to love about this ensemble? I haven't seen Eddie Murphy in a very long time, but he was quite smashing in his black and white tuxedo, while his date Paige Butcher looked amazing in purple!Oprah is known for wearing bold colors but she was stunning in a gold evening gown by Vera Wang! The color worked had a regal look to it and the gown was so perfect for her bodacious curves!I've never seen Chrissy Teigen in anything that wasn't stunning! This Zuhair Murad showed a little skin while still being so very elegant.J Lo always gives us a sultry, yet sexy look on the red carpet. This Elie Saab ball gown was not the body hugging dress that we're used to seeing her in, but she still managed to give us a little bit of sultry.Kerry Washington was channeling Olivia Pope in this Miu Miu gown. Whites and ivories really work for her! Lupita Nyong'o in a custom Calvin Klein pearl gown?! Yes. Yes. Yes! The 6000 pearls that made up this gown was beyond exquisite.This beaded and sparkly Versace gown, worn by Jennifer Anniston was one that I really wanted to see up close and personal. I love the color, the fit, and of corse the sparkles of this gown!
