Oscars 2012

I watched the Oscars twice today, once via Twitter as they happened live, and again as the whole thing was shown on TV in Australia some hours later. Both times I was mesmerized by the beautiful gowns on the red carpet. Even the ones that weren't my favorites were still beautiful in their own ways.

While watching the rest of the awards I've done some quick watercolor sketches of my two favorite dresses. Milla Jovovich in Elie Saab Fall 2009 couture with Edie Parker clutch and Elie Saab platform shoes, and Penelope Cruz in Giorgio Armani organza.

What was your favorite red carpet gown?

Here it is!


Thank you to everyone who tried to guess what my 'sneak peek' was last week. It was a shoe! The painting was commissioned by a lovely bridesmaid as a gift for her friend who is getting married soon. They are all wearing the same antique pink, sequined shoes, and aren't they adorable!
