The Simply Luxurious Life®: Oscars 2012 Red Carpet – Best Dressed

Oscars 2012 Red Carpet – Best Dressed

The 84th annual Academy Awards red carpet was full of hits and misses, and while this year was in my opinion not as fruitful in “best” dresses (view my red carpet best dress from 2011), there were a handful that looked absolutely exquisite . . . beginning with Gwyneth Paltrow. Anyone who is fortunate to wear Tom Ford most certainly is receiving a garment that will draw attention for all the right reasons, but when worn by Gwyneth, the combination is quite impression. Have a look below at my list of the best dressed of 2012’s Oscar Red Carpet.  I’d love to know your thoughts and if you believe someone else should have been added to the list.

Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford


Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton


Stacey Keebler in Marchesa


Milla Jovovich in Elie Saab


Maria Menounos in Maria Lucia Hohan


Sandra Bullock in Marchesa


Louise Roe in Black Halo


Viola Davis in Vera Wang


Rose Byrne in Vivienne Westwood

Rooney Mara in Givenchy Couture


Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli


Tina Fey in Carolina Herrera


Meryl Strep in Lanvin (Best Actress winner)

I agree with all of these! Except for maybe Sandra Bullock. I love her, and the dress by itself is intricate and beautiful-but I think the top portion does nothing for her (you can notice this on the 2nd photo you posted. My favorite is probably Maria Menounos and Meryl Streep-so perfect and age appropriate!

If I have to pick just one, then Stacey Keebler had the dress I was more attracted to. Absolutely fluid and she looked wonderful in it!

Of course they all looked gorgeous, but that one stood out for me. As for adorableness: Emma Stone "killed" as a presenter. She is so funny!! Love her!

Great shots and very interesting blog. I do find Stacey Keebler in Marchesa dress very sexy and attractive as well. I wonder when she seats down how uncomfortable that bolt can get though...

I completely agree with every single one of your picks. Unique, classy, elegant and true to who they are.

I love Gwyneth in that gown - so fluid and flawless... But am not too sure about Stacey Keebler. There's something distracting about the floral detail on her hip. Did anyone get a good shot at Princess Charlene of Monaco?

Can't believe in some of your choices. They could make it in Worst Dress list. Where's JLo? Why is she not here? She's the Star of that Night.
