Please, just this once, allow me to be utterly self indulgent and....Let's look at some of my favorites from the red carpet!
To Amy Adams for her see-through birdy bag. This bag is aaaaaamazing-- that's an arched winged flying bird on the top! I saw her admit to Ryan Seacrest on E! that it holds ... nothing! It's made of gold mesh and essentially is just there to look good. (On the dress side of things, props to Miss Amy for wearing Proenza Schouler as well! Lovely color on a redhead.)
Best Accessory Part 2:
To Vanessa Paradis. She's got the ultimate arm candy.
To Diablo Cody for her exposed ink. I know this may make me unpopular, but as anyone who knows me knows, I firmly believe that tattoos (and chewing gum) have NO place on the red carpet on such a night as the Oscars. I mean, I know she was a stripper and all, but the Oscars are all about glamour, people. And leopard print, that's a whooooole other story. Call me old fashioned. Whatever. I can take it.
