NYC Recessionista Roundup: Academy Awards favorites

Was anyone else kind of underwhelmed by the dresses last night at the Oscars?  I was a little bummed that more ladies didn’t experiment with bolder colors … I thought a lot of them played it safe.

That being said … here are my favorite looks from the night:

Jessica Chastain in Armani Privé … she’s bringing straight up old Hollywood glamour.

Alicia Vikander in Ellie Saab Couture … love the dress color (and the chartreuse belt) and the lace.

Jennifer Garner in Gucci … this aubergine is amazing on her. Love the vintage necklace, too.

Naomi Watts in Armani Privé … her hair and makeup are absolutely flawless. Dress is fierce, too.

Reese Witherspoon in Louis Vuitton … I could’ve done without the bow, but I love it. Color is fab.

Sanda Bullock in Ellie Saab Couture … she just always knows how to dress her body. So elegant.
