Little Golden Men

Oh, the Oscars. The pinnacle of any actor's career and the most beautiful eye candy for the rest of us. This year, I thought it would be fun to think about what I would wear if I went. The shoes! The dresses! The jewelry! could one ever decide?

When I saw Michelle Williams in her Vera Wang saffron yellow dress (with bright red lipstick I might add) I was hooked; it was the most elegant and beautiful look I had ever seen. I loved her hairstyle so much that I even asked my hair stylist to mirror the updo for my brother's wedding!

The other look I might choose is simple elegance like Miss Jolie here. Yes, it's a little black dress, but my how she stood out with those amazing emerald jewels! I definitely think this is a trend on the rise- let the jewelry speak! This would be my second option for my 'lil visit to the Academy Awards; maybe in another lifetime? ;)

And lastly, you can't leave your guy out. Call me old-fashioned, but you just can't go wrong with the classic bowtie.

Now let's head over to Ashley Nicole Catherine for our next stop on Blog crawl: A Toast to the Oscars.
