Did you happen to catch the Academy Awards on television this past Sunday? We loved the array of beautiful dresses and colors. Some years there are trends in color or no color or interesting fashion "decisions" that light up the news. We did notice a lot hard rectsangular box clutch purses this particular evening. They looked just large enough to carry the essentials like your phone (so you could tweet), some lip gloss (that you could give to Ellen because you didn't have any cash) and cash (!) to tip the pizze delivery guy. We enjoyed the fun event and here's our top 5 picks for best dressed! What was your favorite dress?

Jennifer Lawrence works that beautiful short hairdo with this amazing Christian Dior bright red strapless peplum gown. She wore a backwards diamond necklace and shows us that repeating a similar style from last year only endears us to her even more with this triumph of an ensemble!

We love Blush pink and how it works with many different skin tones. The ice pink Gabriela Cadena gown had long sleeves, a low back a stole embellishing one side. Charlotte Olympia shoes, a satin clutch and Lorraine Schwartz diamond jewelry completes this refined and polished look.
