Style // The Oscars Best Dressed

So this whole “getting back to blogging” thing is going a little slower than I hoped, huh?
I literally have a list of 20+ different posts that I want to write, but finding the time to sit down at a computer to actually write them is another story. I know we’ll get into more of a schedule eventually, but for now, I’m just really enjoying every second with my sweet little Henry 🙂
This weekend was pretty low-key but nice; went to the Farmer’s Market, went out with the girls for drinks and fro-yo to celebrate a friend’s birthday, went to church, went for a walk with a friend, and enjoyed all the sunshine we had here in Portland. And of course, we watched the Oscars last night!
I love keeping up with red carpet fashion during awards season and the Oscars is definitely the most important night of them all. I actually really enjoyed last night’s show and thought NPH did a great job hosting. And how awesome was that Lady Gaga Sound of Music tribute? I don’t think anyone (myself included) quite realized what an amazing voice she has! I feel like she seems like she’s trying to change direction with her image and so last night was definitely a huge moment that has her back on everyone’s radar now. And then when Julie Andrews came out it just made it that much more amazing. The Sound of Music is one of my all-time favorite movies and I can’t believe it’s 50 years old! (Sidenote – fellow SOM lovers will enjoy this article) Overall I thought it was a great show. As for the red carpet? Overall, everyone seemed like they were sort of playing it safe, but there were definitely a few dresses that stood out to me. Here are my favorites from last night’s festivities: 
Reese Witherspoon in Tom Ford 
She’s one of my all-time favorites and this dress looked so classic and elegant on her.
Jennifer Lopez in Elie Saab
JLo has been straight up killing it this awards season and this dress was no exception!

Emma Stone in Elie Saab 
I love her style and thought this color looked so stunning on her!
Gwyneth Paltrow in Ralph & Russo
Although I didn’t love her earrings/makeup, I thought this dress was perfection on her.

Rosamund Pike in Givenchy
This dress was gorgeous and was definitely a standout with all the light-colored gowns last night.

Julianne Moore in Chanel 
I thought this dress was so beautiful and extremely fitting for a Best Actress winner!

Jennifer Aniston in Versace
So I thought this was a little boring on her, but she seriously looks amazing and the dress is beautiful.

Felicity Jones in Alexander McQueen
At first, I was a little unsure how I felt about this one, but I actually really love it because it’s different!

Cate Blanchett in John Galiano
This was an understated look that I thought was perfect for being a presenter,  plus I love that necklace. Black and turquoise is one of my favorite color combos, it just looks so sharp!
