Penélope Cruz in vintage BalmainShe looks like Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina in this vintage gown. Yes, it's a white gown, but it's very detailed. I like that she kept the accessories at a minimum because the dress already has enough adornments. It's definitely an improvement from the SAGs and the Golden Globes. I also love her speech for winning Best Supporting Actress.
Anne Hathaway in Armani Privé
She's usually a very edgy dresser, but when it comes to award shows, she tends to wear safe silhouettes. The adornments are usually what make her dresses interesting. You know what though, she's one of the only paler people who doesn't look washed out in white.Marissa Tomei in Versace
Natalie Portman in RodarteI'm not the fondest of this shade of pink, but I appreciate that she was the only one who wore pink at all. The silhouette's not the most exciting, but I understood where she was coming from. She looks like a princess.
Marion Cotillard in Dior
It's a little toned down from her very interesting Gaultier dress last year, yet it's still interesting. It's a mix between Anne Hathaway's Golden Globe Armani Prive dress and Marcia Cross's Carolina Herrera SAG dress. It's a lot to work with, but it's not fussy.
Jessica Biel in Prada
Miley Cyrus in Zuhair Murad
SJP was my personal favorite because she rocks this silhouette and is one of the only people who can. I love the simple detailing, color, and her hair. She looks perfect.
She usually dresses way too mature for her age, but I think she did a good job with this dress. It's a nice vintage inspried dress that could've used a little less spakrle, but I think her hair and makeup are very age appropriate.

Tilda Swinton in Lanvin
I think this woman is one of the most fashion-forward actresses out there. Her looks are always a bit avant-garde, but she able to pull them off. This look is a major improvement from the Lanvin dress she wore last year. I like that she keeps everything a bit androgynous; it's very refreshing to look at.Sarah Jessica Parker in Dior
Here are some people I thought could've used a few improvements. Then again, they could've done without them too:
Kate Winslet in Atelier Yves Saint Laurent
This is definitely a "Best Actress's" dress, and I actually don't hate it. I just think the flowers aren't consistent enough. I would rather have the flowers cover the whole dress. Oh, and that Grace Kelly hair just didn't work for her.
Freida Pinto in John GallianoAlthough I think she makes a lot of fashion missteps, I do like that she's a risk taker. Nothing's really wrong with this dress; it's just the sleeve. Hack that thing off and she's good to go.
Evan Rachel Wood in Elie Saab
I think this dress is absolutely gorgeous and so is she. What's wrong? The color. She's pretty much the same color as the dress. Unlike Anne Hathaway, who's complexion a shade darker, this girl really shouldn't be wearing white, unless she wants to be invisible. I think the black nails are cute though.
Amy Adams in Carolina HerreraI like the necklace, but that dress is a bit off. Here is a situation where a black dress wouldn't be so boring. Maybe I just have a personal bias of not wanting hair color to clash with the color of clothes. Everything else looks good.

Here is a girl who looks stunning without being glammed up. The casual makeup and hair would've done her a great favor with her Elie Saab dress at the Golden Globes. I don't understand why she always pulls something weird when she doesn't have to. I would've maybe liked this dress if the gold was black instead. That way, it'd be more subtle but still interesting.
