Earlier this morning I posted my opinions on the worst Oscar dresses from last night. Well, criticizing is easy enough, one esteemed colleague told me, but did I have an eye for beauty? Probably not, I said, but I'll take a stab at it. So it's in that spirit that I present to you my picks for the Best Oscar Dresses of the 2009 Academy Awards:
Viola Davis, nominated for her supporting role in Doubt, shimmers in this simple and elegant gold number.
Normally I'm not a huge Sarah Jessica Parker, but I have to say she looked amazing last night.
Now here's someone who I'm always a fan of, aesthetically speaking. Angelina Jolie was gorgeous in the strapless black dress. And those earrings!
But for me, nothing topped this breathtaking gown on Marisa Tomei. She owned the carpet.
