Best Dressed for Ladies goes to:

1.) Sandra Bullock in her color-blocked Prabal Gurung Dress


#2 Nominee for Ladies Category: Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad



I also loved Margot Robbie and Monica Potter!

 

Annnnd drumroll please for best dressed male goes to (well if you know me then this was a no-brainer) Leonardo Dicaprio folks in head-to-toe Armani (oh my heavens)


Jon Voight also looking dapper in the men's category:



WORST dressed nominees: (let me just say that this year wasn't as bad as previous years with terrible attire- way to go folks!)

1.) Hayden Panettiere in Tom Ford (just not my fav neckline)



and Zoe Saldana in Prabal Gurung (I know it is neat to take risks but this dress I just didn't love and oddly enough it was the same designer on my best dressed list! haha)


and definitley Paula Patton- Sorry Paula- it's been done (Stephane Rolland)

  8. Love your list, so many fun facts! I am a red wine girl as well. I love a good blend. Favorite wine maker by far is Dave Phinney/Orin Swift. I did just find a great wine a couple of weeks ago, Dead Bolt. Delish!

    I didn't love Sandy's dress, but I did love Paula's, I think she really just pulled it off. I also loved Reese Whitherspoon's green! We started watching pre carpet all the way through. Love award season!
