Oscar Red Carpet: Best Dressed at the Academy Awards

It's Oscar night! As much as I forget these things are happening until Giuliana is judging silhouettes and Catt Sadler is hosting an awkward spanx runway, I'm a sucker for live tweeting and red carpet attire. I'm kicking it up a notch in the form of a pseudo-live blog post featuring my favorite dresses of the moment. Maybe just one post, or maybe I'll get on some super celeb-high and publish three entries full of dresses that cost more than my car. We'll see. Now... onto the dresses! (And maybe some suits?) Catch me on Twitter to join the conversation and follow #OscarSTL. OR leave a comment below and let's chat red carpet.

5:10 PM - E! News is doing their thing and Kelly Osbourne is super giggly in Tony Ward while Giuliana Rancic is rocking Rafael Cennamo (remember all those fancy gold dresses from my NYFW coverage? That one.) Images by Getty and WireImage from E! News.

6:35 PM - The top ladies are hitting the red carpet and it's no surprise they're in some of the best dresses. Except Adele. It's classic, yes... but I'm getting bored. Does she always wear the same dress or is it just that her dresses are never memorable enough to notice?

Who did white on the red carpet best? Charlize Theron, Gwyneth Paltrow or Anne Hathaway?

7:00 PM - I'm really sleepy from all this live blogging and now I want to go to bed. Does anyone have some wine? I need some wine.

7:01 PM  - I guess Anne Hathaway just irritates the crap out of everyone. Are you Team Anne?

7:19 PM - Loving these dresses but I can see a couple getting sass from the fashion police. What do you think?

10:45 PM - Thanks for hanging out guys! I'm happy to have you, always. Let's continue the conversation. First, if you see any dresses sans designer, share your knowledge! A couple I still don't know at all, a couple I left blank out of curiosity/laziness. Second, let's provoke some thought:

-Would you wear a formal dress to a fashion show at Saint Louis Fashion Week?
-Would you wear any of the above?
-Did anyone get it WAY wrong?
