On Sunday 7th March the 82nd Annual Academy Awards took place in Hollywood. I’ve picked out a few of my favourite dresses above.

Starting with Sarah jessica Parker and working clockwise, SJP wore an unusual Chanel couture gown which suited her figure and style perfectly. Kate Beckinsale looked stunning as normal in a silver Kaurfman Franco gown at the Vanity Fair after party. I liked her hair in loose curls and the cut of the dress works with well her petite frame.

Olivia Wild possibly is my favourite of the night. With a red clutch and red lipstick, the nude coloured dress from Roland Mouret looked stunning. Victoria Beckham wore a dress from  her own Fall 2010 collection and pouted for England as normal.

Hilary Swank possibly was the biggest risk taker of the night, wearing an Armani prive dress cut down to her navel leaving little the imagination. She was one of the only females to do anything remotely daring and pulled it off well.

A dress similar in style but less revealing came from Vanessa Ann Hudgens, but when you’re on the arm of Zac Efron who’s really going to be looking at what you’re wearing? Even if you do insist on pulling that “I know something you don’t know” coy smile/smirk in EVERY photo that’s taken of you.

Katie Perry broke the Oscar’s golden rule by wearing a red dress on the red carpet. Luckily we managed to distinguish her from the background and she did look pretty good. The strapless mermaid style dress from Zuhair Mohad looked good on her curvacious figure.

Rachel McAdams worked the massive train in a printed Ellie Saab couture gown which looked gorgeous.

Overall my favourites of the night have to be either Kate Beckinsale or Olivia Wild. Would’ve liked to have seen more unusual interesting dresses, everyone seems to sticked with block colours and there wasn’t anything which particularly caught my attention. Anyone else have favourite’s I haven’t mentioned?

Set to be the only way to wear your denim in 2010 is the Motorcycle jean. A new take on the skinny jean, these have panelling and added piping detail on the knees to give that “biker chic” look which has been around for a while. Already shown by Balmain in S/S 2009 and the favourite of celebrities including Rihanna, Victoria Beckham, Nikki Hilton, Katie Holmes and Cameron Diaz (all pictured) they are both flattering and edgy.

Dress them up with a biker jacket and some heavy boots like Nikki Hilton, or down like Katie Holmes with a simple jumper and flats. If the £868 price tage on the Balmain pair (and that’s reduced from £1,240, eek!) is a bit out of your budget, Miss Selfridge and Topshop have some more affordable pairs for £38 and £48.
