Liza's Best and Worst of the Academy Awards 2011

The Academy Awards were pretty meh this year... Wasn't that into the show, but I WAS making sure to  note my best and worst dressed of the night! So typical that when Jewls texted me her top three favorites of the night, those were mine too! Hahahaha! Us best friends think a LOT alike! ;) XO, Liza

Best Dressed

Cate Blanchett in Givenchy Couture- One word. STUNNING. This dress is most definitely high fashion, so I kind of understand that some people may not get it. I, on the other hand, am in love with it and Cate Blanchett clearly gets it. The dress is beyond unique and so different. I love the sleeves, as well as the incredible back. I can't picture any other actress wearing it with such elegance and confidence.

Michelle Williams in Chanel Haute Couture- I can never get enough of what Michelle Williams wears to movie premieres or award ceremonies. She always looks SO beautiful and so chic. This whole look.... the hair, the make-up, the dress... absolute perfection.

Mila Kunis in Elie Saab Haute Couture- Absolutely gorgeous! I LOVE this color on her and the draping on the dress is incredible. It's sexy, but in the classiest way. Love the final touch of simple earrings, a bracelet, and no necklace. This dress has such a gorgeous neckline and wearing anything around the neck would take away from the entire look. I think Mila nailed it!

Worst Dressed

 Penelope Cruz in L'Wren Scott- Definitely my worst of the night. This looks like she bought it at the mall or something... It's like a really bad cheesy prom dress! Ugh! So awful! She usually looks great, but this gown is terrible.

 Nicole Kidman in Dior- This one is pretty bad. From far away, it looks like there are seashells or something on her dress. The cut is really bizarre too! Hate it. Very tacky and creepy.

 Florence Welch in Valentino Couture- I love this dress... I really do! Problem is it looks AWFUL on Florence. She is so fair with her red hair and pale skin and it just does not work on her whatsoever. She almost looks shlumpy in it? I don't know, but something is totally off for me.


  1. oh yees.. cate blanchett looked awesome!! and penelope cruz was absolutely horrible in that dress .. she looks pretty average!

  2. I agree with your picks! Cate Blanchett's dress really jumped out at me, so nice. I think Florence Welch's dress would be good on her if it had a little color, maybe a green shawl or something. I have similar skin color and look dreadful in shades of beige/cream or off white.

  3. Ah I absolutely love the dress that Florence is wearing... if only it was any colour BUT cream! Lovely picks though :)

  4. i actually liked kidman's dress... but i must agree kate blanchett's was the most unique and stunning. it was so dynamic complimentary for her complexion and figure

  5. Totally in line with our thoughts! Cate Blachett is always perfection. I actually loved Scar Jo's dress and hair and Natalie's earrings, too. Check out our round-up and let us know what you think.

  6. I definitely didn't get Cate's dress. I think the reason I didn't like it was because the front reminded me of the back brace I had to wear after my back surgery. That circular thing was identical to the back brace so that made it weird to me. I thought the absolute worst dressed was Kathryn Bigelow (director of Hurt Locker). Did you see when she presented? She looked like she was wearing a rug. It was awful. I also liked Mila Kunis, but I was distracted by her chest in that dress. It kept looking like she had tattoos on her boobs a la singer Eve. But I loved the rest of the dress.

  7. Hi there,

    Your blog is very nice! Please come and have a look at mine as well. Pretty Portobello

    See you soon.

  8. I think Cate looks amazing! I love her new shorter hair do!

  9. I totally agree Cate Blanchett is def the best dressed, I LOVE THAT DRESS! So different yet classy & beautiful =)

  21. So glad for a close-up of Cate's dress front. Amazing. And I do think she is the one to pull it off. Agreed on Michelle Williams, too. I can hardly stop looking at her.
    So sad about Penelope. And are those highlights? Even more sad. Although she is still a favorite of mine--my "crossover" girl crush.
    (glad you visited--it's fun to find your blog, too)

  22. I completely agree! Especially on Penelope's dress; it just wasn't flattering at all.

  23. I agree with all of the Best and Worst Dressed. Cate usually always gets it right and her dress was fashion forward and absolutely amazing! Loved Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams has never looked better. Thanks for the follow! =) Love your blog!

  24. I agree with your picks and loved your comments. Only Cate could get away with that dress. Thank you! Will be following you...

  25. No one argues Cate's choice. She looked amazing.

  26. THANK YOU! I was waiting for someone to saw something about Cruz's choice... Terrible. And poor Florence... She's like me, and just can't wear yellow!
