This week’s Sally Award goes to Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé and Chopard jewelry at last night’s Academy Awards. The most glamorous and sophisticated dress on the red carpet, this cap-sleeved diaphanous tulle dress with sequins and Swarovski crystals was perfect for both Cate and the occasion. We always love seeing Cate in golden hues, which highlight her natural beauty. Cate’s deep side part, soft waves and elegant make up are a lovely nod to old Hollywood glamour.
Our second-favorite look was Sandra Bullock in a gorgeous, midnight blue Alexander McQueen gown. She has never looked better on the red carpet.
Lovely Lupita Nyong’o continued her reign as Hollywood’s new goddess of chic in an ethereal custom Prada gown. Although we have loved all her red carpet looks this season, we might have preferred her in a sleeker gown such as the KaufmanFranco we predicted she’d wear.
Rounding out our top five are Olivia Wilde in Valentino and Kate Hudson (minus the capelet) channeling a 1930s vibe in Atelier Versace. Tell us in the comments section who you thought were the five best-dressed women last night. We’d love to hear from you.
