February 28, 2012 by Editor in Shop with 0 Comments

The Oscars played host to some great fashion gems this year with each stylish hit shining brightly as it waltzed down the red carpet or onto the stage. Unfortunately there were just as many fashion blunders making appearances at the event as well. Now, let’s have some fun and look at 10 of the stylish dos and don’ts from the 84th Academy Awards show.

Red Carpet Dos

Cameron Diaz looked elegant in her ivory dress and Penelope Cruz demonstrated class with a movie-star flare in her fairytale ensemble.

Red Carpet Don’ts

Although there were many well-dressed celebrities at the 84th Academy Awards, there were 10 wardrobe mishaps that stood out on stage and at the Governor’s Ball. Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis looked comical in their white marching band get-ups and Leila Hatami looked like a breezy ghost in her lady-in-white wrap. Check out the album below and see what we have to say about each person’s attire by clicking on the “i” icon. Hint: You can pop out the photo gallery to full screen by clicking on the FS button.

If you are feeling fashion envy, remember, most of the dresses, jewelry, accessories and suits worn by the attendees of this event are borrowed from famous designers or boutiques looking for name recognition and mentions as the stars walk down the red carpet. You can find dresses and costume jewelry that look just as good, if not better, at some department stores and other fashionista outlets like Marshalls, Ross, Kohl’s or T.J. Maxx.
