The big show has come and gone. A silent film, "The Artist" took out five major awards and the visually captivating "Hugo" also took out some major titles.
A huge congratulations to awards winners, noteably Meryl Streep for her Best Actress nod and to Jean Dujardin for his role in "The Artist".
This year's Oscars was nothing spectacular in the fashion department, with all celebrities opting to play it safe. Listed below are those that I thought were best dressed for the evening as well as those that may have missed the mark.

BEST DRESSED 2012
There was no stand out Number One Best Dressed this year unfortunately, so below are a list of Best Dressed Females of 2012...
ANGELINA JOLIE in VERSACE
(One demerit point for having to repeat the same obligatory pose in every photo to show off the dress to its full capacity)
GIULIANA RANCIC in TONY WARD COUTURE
NATALIE PORTMAN the Polka Dot Princess
PENELOPE CRUZ ~ Old Hollywood Glamour
(The shoulder cape was stunning, she looked sleek, sophisticated and polished)
THE MISSES OF 2012
(Unfortunately I did not think the dress was very flattering for her figure and did not have much shape)
(I didn't like the cut of the front of her dress and felt that I had seen that hair-do and dress combination before...on multiple occasions)
GORGEOUS, BUT I WAS NOT SO SURE ABOUT...
(The pink clutch that clashed with the firey red of her dress. Stunning outfit but the bag let her down)
(The whole time I was thinking - "I've seen this before, I've seen this before". Flash back to Oscars 2007 and Nicole Kidman wore a stunning red dress that was strikingly similar to Emma's Giambattista Valli gown)
