81st Oscars: "Night of the One Shoulder"

If you didn't catch the Oscars last night "Slumdog Millionaire" swept the Academy Awards.  Sean Penn won best actor and Kate Winslet won best actress.  Heath Ledger won best supporting actor and Penelope won best supporting actress.  For more winners click HERE.  Now its time for the important stuff...red carpet trendspotting!

(Faux) One Shoulder was the trend I spotted the most. 
Here are a few red-carpet samples:

Freida Pinto in John Galliano
& Nancy O'Dell in Pamela Rolland

Marissa Tomei in Versace
& Kate Winslet in Atelier Yves Saint Laurent

Other notable trends...
The Strapless Gathered Gown:

Alicia Keys in Armani Prive

Evan Rachel Wood in Elie Saab

Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab

The Mermaid:

Vanessa Hudgens in Marchesa
& Diane Lane in Dolce & Gabbana

Melissa George in Dolce & Gabanna

My Best-Dressed Picks:

Mickey Rourke staying true to himself 

SJP in Dior
 I will always love a corset & full tulle skirt
(even if it is hard to breathe...)

Until then, Mermaid or One-Shoulder?
