This years Oscars set for history from the oldest actor to win an Oscar, to the French representation of a silent black and white film epitomizing Old Hollywood. A huge trend last night was long sleeve gowns on younger actresses, which gave mixed reviews. Some applauded the act of modest beauty while others felt that the mature style aged the stars in a bad way. These are my favorite looks from last night.

Angelina Jolie wows in Versace and the dress commands attention. The slit in the front just shows the right amount of sex appeal and the sweet heart neckline gives Angie just the right amount of cleavage. This would be like a modern day Jessica Rabbit, esp the bold red lip which was hufe during fashion week.

Rooney ( in Givency Haute Couture) reminds me of the dark classic hollywood that is Betty Page. The mermaid siholette gives the illusion of curves and light colors were popular last night. Also the bold red lip adds a pop of color to this very classic style.
Feom last night the show was spectacular as not only the styles, but Billy Crystal's effortless charm, the jaw dropping effects and the stars and people behind them that deserved much credit for their dedication to the arts!
