Okay, so now lets go to the area where I'm pretty much interested in... THE RED CARPET.
The Fashion Police are ALERT and PRESENT as usual :)

The dresses are somewhat just like the Grammy's last time... full of glitters and sheer. But, there are also those who did not opt to wear dresses like those but still turned a lotta heads.

White: Clean and Classy


Best Dressed!



So whuddya think about their gowns? Pretty? Classy? Gorgeous? Lemme know. :)
Personally, I find these dresses lovely. I envy these pretty ladies having a lot of opportunities every year to dress up and walk on that oh so famous carpet (wishing I could do that someday too!)

The ladies and the gents were at their best that evening. I believe this was another successful academy awards night. Congratulations to all the winners!
