I posted a few photos earlier tonight of the Oscars 2011 red carpet, and here’s a few more. Overall, I thought the dresses were nice. Yeah, just nice. Nothing completely spectacular, and none that jumped off the screen at me. Even Helena Bonham Carter was somewhat subdued — for her anyway. The only dress I really didn’t get was Cate Blanchett’s. It just looked weird. See what you think, and leave comments below.




  1. I agree with you. I was wondering whether Cate Blanchett was perhaps modeling an Australian designer she wanted to promote. Usually she looks so stunning. This dress was just weird.

  2. seems to me Cate’s dress was fine too, though I am wondering the same thing as Alexandra, above, if she might have been promoting a favourite designer. Amy Adams and Gwyneth Paltrow had my favourite — very different — dresses, I think, also liked Sandra Bullock’s choice.

  3. I always love looking at the fashions.When I first looked at Cate’s dress, I thought it was kind of strange-looking, but the more I looked at it, the more I liked it (although I’m probably in the minority). Gwyneth’s was absolutely stunning, dahling 🙂

  4. Here’s how some struck me:
    MIla Kunis: lingerie
    Halley Berry and Hillary Swank: Star Power
    Nicole Kidman–odd
    Sandra Bullock–uncomfortabel
    Annette Bening: Matronly (Too bad, cause she’s beautiful)
    But I actually liked Helen Carter Bonham’s look in motion. I think that the picture makes it look boring.
    How nice to just be able to be a critic instead of having to actually perform!

  5. I’m in the minority on liking Cate Blanchett’s dress – yes, it’s off-kilter, but I get so bored with the mermaidy, sheer, sequined princess gowns all over the place. Truthfully, I HATED Jennifer Lawrence’s dress. I know she was inspired by the classic Farrah Fawcett swimsuit pic, but it seemed way too sporty.
