Oscar Madness

February 23, 2009

I’m blogging to to you live from India right now (I’m attending a jewelry show; more on that later) where I’m watching the Oscars live at 11am. It’s actually lovely to watch the ceremony from the very country that Slumdog Millionaire was made–the excitement here is certainly palpable.

But what’s important here is the “awards” for best dressed, not for films. This year’s red carpet was actually awash in white; certainly the color of the year. Many women went for shimmery silver tones as an accent and there are a large array of beautiful gowns to take a look at that fall under this category.

Below are some of my favorites (including Best Supporting Actress winner Penelope Cruz) and what they chose to wear.
