It’s that time of year again! The Oscars are here! Many of our favorite stars were nominated for great awards . Before the awards show, they strutted their stuff on the red carpet. Some made a splash, while others clearly need to see another stylist. Read on and take a look at the hits and misses of the 2012 Academy Awards!
Gwyneth Paltrow stunned in a white Tom Ford gown complete with a cape. Someone looks like Wonderwoman! She accessorized with an Anna Hu Haute Joallerie diamond cuff and ring. Jimmy Choos completed her gorgeous ensemble.
Giuliana Rancic looked as beautiful as ever, wearing a Tony Ward dress and Jacob and Co. jewels. She opted for a fresh-faced look this year, ditching heavy foundation. It worked! She’s radiant and one of the best-dressed interviewers at the event.
Meryl Streep is up for her 17th Oscar nomination tonight. You go girl! She’s wearing Lanvin’s first ever eco-gown, made with eco-certified fabric from Livia Firth’s Green Carpet Challenge. Streep finished her look with Ferragamo shoes, a Lanvin clutch and Fred Leighton jewels.
Not everyone knows how to highlight their best features. Maya Rudolph is dressed for a Lady Gaga concert in a Johanna Johnson gown with shoulder armor. Maybe she’s a Little Monster. Either way, covering herself only emphasizes her large chest and even her makeup can’t save her. At least her hair looks good.
Kristen Wigg looks like she’s at an 80s prom instead of the biggest night in Hollywood. The strapless J Mendel gown has too much tulle and is not flattering at all. Neil Lane jewels are a nice touch, but the outfit is going nowhere. She can’t even redeem herself with a dark manicure.
Shailene Woodley chose to wear a long sleeve Valentino dress, which resembles a housedress from the 50s. The Harry Winston diamonds are beautiful, but don’t be fooled. The dress belongs on a mannequin and should never be seen again.Ferragamo, giuliana rancic, Gwyneth Paltrow, J.
