Top 10 Picks for Best Dressed at the 2015 Oscars

The Academy Awards red carpet brought some interesting looks this year, not to mention plenty of upsets. A few of my usual favorites like Reese Witherspoon and Emma Stone didn't give me the usual wow factor while some others I'm not normally a big fan of like Naomi Watts shut it down. In short… It was great to be surprised and see some exciting, risky fashion on the red carpet. Without further ado, these are my top ten picks for best dressed at the 2015 Oscars!

1. Cate Blanchett in Maison Margiela with Tiffany & Co. Jewels
As far as I'm concerned, Cate Blanchett can do no wrong on the red carpet. Even when she makes really bold choices, they always work. I get the impression that Cate really knows herself and what works for her. In this particular instance, she's wearing a rather understated look with a chic, black dress  however it's glamorous, timeless and that Tiffany & Co. necklace is the perfect complement. Her simple, chic hair & make-up are just perfect… There is nothing wrong with this Oscars red carpet look and everything right with it. Gorgeous!

2. Gwyneth Paltrow in Ralph & Russo
Gwyneth Paltrow's pastel pink Ralph & Russo gown is the stuff of ballerina princess fairytale dreams and I absolutely love it! However, this look really shines because the make-up is flawless, the slicked back hair is sexy & chic and those earrings are incredible. Well played GP!

3. Naomi Watts in Armani Privé
I almost always adore an Armani Privé red carpet moment and this is no exception! Naomi looks edgy, sexy and positively stunning. For me, this is the best she's ever looked and the dress in incredible! Paired with wavy hair and wine-stained lips, this is red carpet perfection.

4. Marion Cotillard in Dior Haute Couture
Marion Cotillard + Dior = better together. I love the polka dot pattern on this white-on-white gown. I also love that it gives a major 60's vibe from the front, but even better is the back (pictured at top). Put that all together with her looking very comfortable and effortless and this is a red carpet winning look for me… I know some people don't agree, but I think this look was a risk worth taking that totally paid off in solidifying Marion's status as a red carpet diva!

5. Lupita Nyong'o in Custom Calvin Klein Collection
Oh Lupita… Every time you step on a red carpet my heart stops from an overdose of joy! I'm sure if I'd seen this in person, it would be my favorite dress ever, but I didn't and while this pearly confection is incredible, it's not quite enough wow factor for the top spots on my list. I also don't really love the neckline, however there's no denying Lupita looks beautiful and she's always such a red carpet hero!

 6. Laura Dern in Alberta Ferretti
Laura Dern is gorgeous and she's always herself, which in my opinion means she's winning the style game in Hollywood. I love this medievil armour-like gown and she's accessorized it perfectly. That hair is pretty hot too - love this look!

 7. Jessica Chastain in Custom Givenchy Haute Couture
Part of me really wants to love this dress better than all the others and in some ways I totally do… Jessica Chastain brought some serious Marilyn Monroe vibes to the red carpet in this sexy navy blue confection. The slit is just high enough, the neckline is just low enough and the hourglass shape is enviable to say the least. Love the peek-a-boo sparkles too and her beautiful red hair is perfect! I only wish she'd skipped the necklace and worn a bit of a brighter lipstick, but all-in-all, this is flawless!

 8. Scarlett Johansson in Atelier Versace
Scarlett couldn't be any sexier and this green gown accentuates her every curve perfectly! I love how she's switched up a halter neck with a massive statement necklace and the pink lipstick is working too!

9. Behati Prinsloo in Armani Privé
Another swoon-worthy Armani Privé moment - Behati Prinsloo was flawless on the red carpet and the gown is incredible! Her slicked back bun is a bit boring and severe, but otherwise I love this look!

10. Meryl Streep in Lanvin
Meryl Streep seems to only get better with age and her appearance on the red carpet last night only proves that. Her monochrome look is a bit basic to be fair, but it's super flattering on her and she's accessorized it with a big pair of fabulous earrings and a blinging belt. This slightly androgynous look is a little more casual that what we normally see at the Oscars, yet perfectly appropriate and chic! I love this style on Meryl - she's rockin the red carpet girl boss look and it suits her!

Who were your favorite stars on the Oscars red carpet this year?
