Watching the red carpet on E! is always fun, probably more so than the show itself. The gowns on the women and the tuxes on the gents. For men, there is not a lot of choice, it’s a tux or a tux, but they always manage to grab the attention of us ladies. The women on the other hand have the color, the style, the designer.

Jessica Chastain, nominated for her role in ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ has made quite a splash this year, for all the good reasons. Her brilliant performance as the CIA agent hunting for Osama Bin Laden has led her to receive several nominations. She looked stunning! Other ladies worth mentioning for making an impression on the red carpet are; the lovely Jennifer Lawrence always looks beautiful, but unfortunately she tripped while going on stage to receive her Oscar for Best Actress for her role as a sex addict in Silver Linnings Playbook. She was a good sport and said, ‘You are all giving me a standing ovation, because you feel bad that I fell. How embarrassing.’ She is adorable!

Charlize Theron’s modern gown was stunning and it went very well with her short hair. Catherine Zeta-Jones, who also performed, looked gorgeous as usual in the arm of her husband, actor Michael Douglas, who looked very dapper as.

Gowns with trains were very popular this time, Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner and Sandra Bullock had one. Nicole Kidman and Halle Berry wore fitted gowns and looked absolutely fabulous.

As for the men, well, like I said, the poor guys don’t have much choice, but the ones that caught my eye were: Daniel Day-Lewis with his royal blue tux, Bradley Cooper, who attended with Mom, Eddie Redmayne, the always handsome Hugh Jackman and Channing Tatum, who was not only very handsome, but super sweet to his pregnant wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
