The Only Reason I Watched the Oscars...

The dresses. Duh! So, I had to share some of my faves today. Seriously, I would DIE to wear these gowns!

Seriously stunning. I literally gasped when I saw Halle Berry in this gorgeous Marchesa gown.

Say what you want, but I love this Givenchy Haute Couture on Cate Blanchett. It's different, but still really pretty and not too out-there. I hate when stars want to push the envelope, and you lose the person in the gown, it ends up wearing them and not the other way around. This is gorgeous, and done so perfectly.

J-Hud looks like a total knockout in this Versace dress!!

Hailie Steinfield looks absolutely adorable in this Marchesa gown she actually helped design! I think its just refreshing to see a 14 year old actually look 14 at a Hollywood event.

Jennifer Lawrence + Calvin Klein Collection = smokin hot!

Oh Natalie Portman nails it in Rodarte. This is so perfect and complements her baby bump so nicely!

Love this Gucci dress on Hilary Swank. I'm a sucker for feathers and sparkle! 

And I think - no, I KNOW - this is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE look of the night:

Mila Kunis in Elie Saab Haute Couture. It's so sexy and so glam! Not overdone on either end of the spectrum, though. My heart skips a beat everytime I see this picture! She looks flawless and the dress is just SO amazingly beautiful! This one is to die for! I want it!!

And Anne had so many gorgeous looks from the red carpet to the actual show. So jealous of all the gorgeous dresses she got to wear. These were 3 of my favorites:

Valentino Haute Couture

Atelier Versace (I had to catch my breath again after I saw this one, too!)

Givenchy Haute Couture

Eye of the Tiger, Year of the Rabbit!

No, not that rabbit (Sex and the City!

Here's my "horoscope" for me, a tiger, the Year of the Rabbit (according to the Chinese horoscopes, obviously):

The Tiger in Year of the Metal Rabbit

Rabbits want freedom to move, and Tigers are equally independent. The Tiger can scale the ladder of success in this Year of the Rabbit, capitalizing on all the skills acquired during the year before. A newly acquired "expert" status may fall upon these creatures, making it easier to land prestigious work assignments. The Year of the Metal Rabbit won't be all work and no play, however. In fact, outdoor activities are highly favored for the Tiger. Running, biking, hiking ... being out in nature is extremely therapeutic.

The Year of the Metal Rabbit will be a sociable one for the Tiger. In fact, friends may take precedence over family. Special times like holidays, birthdays and anniversaries will be celebrated with pals, rather than relatives. It's not that Tigers will turn their backs on kin; it's just that this Year of the Rabbit will prompt these creatures to change their priorities a bit. Relationships formed out of mutual admiration, rather than familial obligation, will feel more enriching.

Taking risks is not favored this year. The Tiger must learn to look before it leaps, or disaster will ensue. The Year of the Metal Rabbit is a time of reflection. Learning to weigh the pros and cons of any given issue is critical. Although the Tiger prefers relying on their intuition, their impulses will not serve them well in this Rabbit year. Waiting 24 hours before making any important decisions will be a good rule for the Tiger to follow.

Rabbit years sometimes tempt the Tiger to change residences. Buying or selling property could prove profitable in 2011. If the Tiger has never owned a place before, this year could be a good time to take the plunge.

Tres exciting, no? :)
