Best Dressed : Academy Awards 2011

Since the Academy Awards is the awards of awards, it's no surprise that the stars brought their best looks to the table with striking purple tones, lace, sequins and of course, red. 
Here are my favorites from the red carpet...
Mila Kunis & Cate Blanchett
I love Mila's plunging neckline and the lavender on this gorgeously draped dress, paired with simple accessories and simple yet chic hair. Cate, again went outside the box with this daring yet colorful dress and I love it, especially the back.
Mandy Moore & Michelle Williams
Gold Check, Sequins Check, Tulle Check - all the makings of a perfect red carpet dress. Whereas Michelle went with an amazing body skimming dress that went perfectly with her golden pixie and natural make up.
Scarlett Johansson & Natalie Portman
I love the idea of a lace gown, even better if its in a deep fuchsia/purple. Everything about Scarlett's look screams bombshell, from her tousled bob and smokey eyes to her form fitting lace dress. Natalie is glowing in this violet gown that's perfectly draped around her growing bump, it's a major do for pregnancy!
Valentino & Anne Hathaway in Valentino
I love that Anne and Valentino walked the carpet together, they're the perfect pair, especially in his stand out red dress. Ah-mazing!
