The Oscars is always a chance for designers to showcase their best frocks. Celebrities want to look their best,  however it seems that their stylists do sometimes get it wrong. A popular choice this year was a cream / white shade that many celebrities opted for. Here are what I thought were great choices, and others who didn't quite get it right. Winners:

Mills Jokovitz -gorgeous, understated, sparkly (PHOTO:WENN)

Octavia Spencer; great for her shape and beautiful understated glamour

Gwyneth Paltrow; understated yet glamorous (Photo: Getty via Popsugar)


Angelina Jolie, in the 'leg' dress; always looks amazing by choosing plain colours but changing her hair and attitude depending on the mood helps her make a statement. This time she's vamping it up! (Photo: Via ecorazzi)


Maryl Streep; very luxurious and glam, a bit less fabric would have been nicer but still a show stopper! (Photo: Getty via Glamour)


Cameron Diaz; great except the bikini suntan lines! (Photo via Fashion Latest)


Melissa McCarth; great choice for the fuller figured actress from Bridemaids. (Photo via Pop on the Pop)

84th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Glenn Close; such an unusual colour to see on the red carpet and a softer alternative to black. (Photo: Paper Mag)


Kirsten Wiig; super feminine (photo via Glamour)



Jessica Chastain, from the range of dresses she would've had access to, think she could've found one to enhance her figure better! (Photo: Jason Merritt/Getty via InStyle)


Emma Stone; lovely colour but the neck bow too overpowering. (Photo: via Zimbio)


Viola Davis - awful cleavage. Should never have choosen that neckline. (Photo: Coco Perez)


Michelle Williams; great dress, but totally wrong colour for her. Way too strong and over powering. (Photo: IBT)


Sandra Bullock lovely in theory, but looks like she's in 2 sizes too big on top! (Photo: Getty via SkyLiving)


Penelope Cruz how can someone so gorgeous manage to look so frumpy!! Leave the full skirts to the older ladies -if anyone!  (Photo: via Yahoo)


Natalie Portman was also a bit on the frumpy side! Not her best look. (Photo: OMG Yahoo)


Katie Holmes; dress is totally the wrong size and looks like its sliding down! (Photo: Cocoperez)


Rooney Mara; awful choice for a flat chest, emphasising it not camouflaging! (Photo: Skyliving)


However, these are just my ideas, what are your opinions? Surely when these woman have access to any dress they want they should be able to get it right? Either they need to get a new stylsit, or not be afraid to say no to their current ones!
