The Oscars

Although some say Billy Crystal was too past his prime to host and Angelina Jolie's right leg stole the show, there were still some great moments. I especially love this photo of Meryl Streep and Colin Firth backstage. Octavia Spencer's emotional response to winning her first Oscar gave me goosebumps. Maybe the Academy was trying to get everyone to appreciate the magic of movies again by giving silent film, The Artist, Best Picture. Who knows?

Anyways, as much as I love watching the red carpet, the after parties are really what I am after. I would love to be a fly on the wall for this conversation between Glenn Close and Michelle Williams.

Sofia Coppola and Tom Ford at Vanity Fair party.

Olivia Wilde walks into the Vanity Fair party.

And just for good measure, these were my favorite dresses of the night. I absolutely love the exaggerated bow on Emma Stone's dress; the rosette shaped gathering on Stacy Keibler's Marchesa gown; and the dramatic draping of Angelina Jolie's Atelier Versace dress.
