belted beauties.

watching the oscars on sunday night was a nice reprieve from some of the other stuff that’s been going on lately—hugh jackman was amusing as a host, i thought, and i love-love-love analyzing the dresses everyone chooses to wear, as well as commenting on hairstyles and makeup. in my opinion, amy adams, marisa tomei, kate winslet and natalie portman looked radiant, and i thought the slew of ivory dresses worn by evan rachel wood, anne hathaway (love her) and penelope cruz were also interesting. in tough times, is white a sign of hope? what do you think?

another trend i noticed? belts! can i just tell you that i love a cinched waist? i think it’s so flattering—it creates shape and emphasizes the narrowest part of a woman’s body. sarah jessica parker, marion cotillard and miley cyrus all embraced the belt trend, and i thought that worked for their body types. these dresses certainly aren’t my absolute favorites of the night (miley looks kind of like an overgrown butterfly), but i think they’re good examples of how to make belts look formal.

what do you think? who made your oscars best-dressed list?
