Oscars 2012 and Parties TOP 5 and more // Red Carpet

Meryl Streep and Jean Dujardin (image via here)

Talented Meryl Streep (Best Actress) and The Artist "Gang" (Best Movie, Best Actor, Directing) were the big winners of the 84th Academy Awards. Hugo got many statuettes and Christopher Plummer was the sweetest (and oldest) of all the winners; Alexander Payne told his mom "sagapo poly", after winning his Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay; Cirque du Soleil left us breathless while performing outrageously non-gravity acts; Billy Crystal is a great presenter and the ceremony was the best I have seen so far. It was a good night, after all (or better morning!)

Of course, there was a lot of fashion at the Oscars, during and after. Here are my TOP 5 from the red carpet, plus some more.

1. Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli Spring 2012 Couture and Louis Vuitton bag and jewels

2. Rooney Mara in Givenchy Spring 2009 Couture

3. Anna Faris in Diane von Furstenberg and Tiffany and Co jewels

4. Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton, Bottega Venetta bag and Fred Leighton jewelry

5. Maria Menounos in Maria Lucia Hohan

And some more
