In terms of dresses, I literally gasped when I saw Cate Blanchett's dress on TV - I thought it was horrific on screen. In the light of day however, I think it photographs very nicely and can imagine it looked awesome in-person. Love the detailing and the color. Dress by Givenchy.
I also really liked Mila Kunis' dress - it was elegant and so classic. Dress by Elie Saab.
Until next year Oscars ...
