2009 Oscar Gowns

[GUEST LIST FROM DRAGON]

Romance was back in 2009's Oscar fashions and I, for one, was very happy. There were a few fashion missteps (ahem...Jessica Biel) but for the most part everyone was dressed to impress.

Here are my 10 favourites:



10. Heidi Klum - Heidi was looking absolutely gorgeous in this fiery red Roland Mouret gown. The origami style top and the super-high slit made for a daring fashion statement. I loved her killer shoes.



9. Evan Rachel Wood - Evan's champagne Elie Saab gown was so simple and elegant.




8. Natalie Portman - Natalie's fuchsia Rodarte gown was a rare pop of fresh, bold colour on this year's sea of neutral coloured gowns.




7. Angelina Jolie - Angelina's black Elie Saab gown can truly be described as a classic. The glimmering emerald earrings were the perfect accessories for this simple gown.




6. Marisa Tomei - Marisa Tomei surprised with this amazing silver Versace gown. That train is a masterpiece. It was definitely one of the most dramatic gowns of the night.




5. Sarah Jessica Parker - Sarah Jessica Parker's Dior haute couture gown was stunning. She described the colour as 'barely mint' and I don't think anyone else could have pulled off this dress.




4. Taraji P. Henson - Taraji Henson proved she belonged on the red carpet with this creamy gown by Roberto Cavalli gown.




3. Penelope Cruz - Penelope is always one to watch on the red carpet and this time was no exception. Her cream coloured vintage Balmain gown with all of the rouching and lace details was actually more than 60 years old. She wore it well.




2. Anne Hathaway - Anne's gown was sophisticated in this jewel encrusted white gown from Armani Prive.




1. Kate Winslet - Kate's Yves Saint Laurent gown was a two-tone steel grey gown with the transparent beaded black down the side. This gown was absolutely gorgeous.
