Watching the red carpet coverage of the Oscars last night, I couldn’t get enough of the stars’ gowns this year. Though usually I can quickly write some off as “ew,” this year I was ooh-ing and aah-ing all over the place.
To pick my favorites would be to post nearly every photo, so instead I’m going to focus on some of the night’s most popular trends and how we mere mortals can rock them.
