|Penelope Ann Miller in|
custom Badgley Mischka.
|Stacy Keibler in Marchesa|
Ok, I digress. Let's talk the winners I chose of the night! Of course, these are my opinions solely...as I am not a licensed Fashion Cop or anything.
[My thoughts: Stacy Keibler looked like liquid gold and was the perfect trophy date for George Clooney. Octavia Spencer could do no wrong with Tadashi. Jennifer Lopez always looks gorge and seriously gives 20-something y/o's a run for their money! Glenn Close looks amazing in that Zac Posen! She looked classy and young (but good young, not trying to hold on young). Giuliana Rancic was perfection, although I would've changed the shade of red lipstick. I love peplum and Tina Fey and Michelle Williams gave me what I needed tonight! However, Tina could've used bold color earrings instead, maybe green? Viola Davis brought natural beauty back! She looked stunning. Gwyneth Paltrow picked a fab white Tom Ford gown with a cape that didn't disturb me at all. And yes, Angelina Jolie looked stellar in her gown...but I thought her hair should've been pulled back. *for the celebs I didn't specifically mention, they just looked gorge and didn't need extra thoughts. P.S. Loved Jessica Chastain bringing her "nana" on the red carpet, who looked lovely in Marina Rinaldi.]

Ok guys and dolls. It's time for our superbowl, The 84th Academy Awards! It's Oscar Sunday. And while I am still discouraged by Kelly Osbourne's hair color (I just had to say it), I am excited for the red carpet fashions. I am tuned into E! for the red carpet coverage. For my live tweeting, you can follow me @NYFashionisette.

I thought it best to let the video do all of the speaking. But I will say this...based on this video, Solange should be rocking some HoD because this is right up her alley now. Maybe she was the inspiration?
Tyra Banks is officially a Harvard graduate. Seems she decided to get some "Higher Learning" (sorry, I couldn't resist) and received her diploma from Harvard University’s Executive Education Owner/President Manager Program on Feb. 17. Those enrolled attend one three-week session, which currently cost $33,000 a pop, per year for three years [according to Washington Post]. Congrats Tyra! Maybe for Season 18 of ANTM, the models will have a photo shoot at Harvard?
