What I would wear on the red carpet

I didn't actually watch the Academy Awards, but I drooled over the pictures of the stars on the red carpet. I love looking at the gowns worn and what different fashion sites say about each of them. Although I don't always agree with what is said, but I still enjoy it. So, I chose my personal best and worst dressed of the night.

I especially loved Amy Adams and her gorgeous gown and jewels. The whole look is fabulous! And I am not a big Amy Adams fan. I actually think she is a mediocre actress, but she sure hit the nail on the head at the Oscars!
My pick for worst dressed is Melissa Leo (who?). What is this atrocity that she is wearing? I think I saw those doilies on sale at Wal-Mart for half off after Valentine's Day!
So I know I'm totally not a fashionista. But I got to thinking...what would I wear if I was going to walk the red carpet? So, I searched....and searched....and searched some more. Okay, it wasn't that bad. I actually didn't find much that I loved. I definitely don't want to look like a prom bomb and there were way too many of those! I finally decided on this gorgeous gray number from Nordstrom. Yeah...and just pretend with me like I have the body to pull that off...
I also need some amazing shoes to go with the dress. I chose these strappy Jimmy Choos. They are only $950.00. That's not bad, right?
Of course, with my luck, Jennifer Garner would also choose that dress and I would be stuck in a "Who wore it better" scuffle. Yeah, I know who would be on the losing end of that one. Have you seen Jennifer Garner?

I like Amy Adams, especially in "Enchanted" or whatever it was called. "The Fighter" was good too. Anyway, I love her gown too. I love to see what they wear. She looked elegant.
