Through the Opera Glasses - 50 - My Top Ten Oscar Gowns From The 2010 Red Carpet














'It's a wonderful night for Oscar! Oscar, Oscar! Who will win...?'

Last night's Oscar broadcast, another red carpet. My second favorite night of the year, after Christmas Eve. Besides all the film industry celebration, of which I can never get enough, besides all the sacrifice suddenly being worth it for the artists and craftspeople who heft the statuette in their hands, the red carpet event at the Oscars is my favorite thing of all.

Here are my personal favorite gowns from the 2010 walk towards the 82nd Academy Awards.


1 - My favorite: Penelope Cruz took my breath away in this dramatic, deep red Donna Karan creation.














2 - Sandra Bullock shimmered in this feminine velvet gown with exquisite lace, by Marchesa.














3 - Anna Kendrick glowed in this ultra-feminine frothy blush-pink gown by Elie Saab.














4 - Helen Mirren sparkled in this soft-gray Badgley Mishka gown.
















5 - Luciana Pedraza, wife of Crazy Heart producer Robert Duval, impressed me with this understated blush-pink slip gown.













6 - Jane Seymour radiated joie de vivre in her brilliant red, sculpted-bodice, strapless sheath.
















7 - Cameron Diaz gleams in golden Oscar de la Renta.
















8 - Amanda Seyfried entranced me with her sweeping white Armani Privé gown.














9 - Kate Winslet knocked me out with this elegant silver full-length sheath skirt and streamlined bodice from Yves Saint Laurent.














10 - Kathy Ireland wore this stretch-sequined sheath with fearless poise.

Janet says You could work the fashion talk shows, Julia - you had a lot of the same picks as the big guys!

Debby says I believe your favs were mine as well.

Susan Helene Gottfried says I missed the Oscars, so am glad to see a good recap of the dresses. Which are of course more important than the awards. :D

I love Jane Seymour.

But I've lost my interest in Oscar night. I used to enjoy watching it with my mom and my sis, but Pam and I just don't really get into it that much.

Great picks. I loved Demi Moore's dress. She was on my top 3.
