Tempting Thursday- A Nod To The Oscars

Even though it seems like the Oscars were just here; we are actually getting ready for the 2011 Oscars which are set for Feb. 27th.

Here’s a look at my top 10 best dressed actresses of the Oscars.


Penélope Cruz (2007)
Cruz's gorgeous Atelier Versace gown with its elaborately feathered train shown above the endless sea of black and slinky.


Nicole Kidman (1996)
It would take quite a dress to upstage Tom Cruise, circa Mission: Impossible. But this chartreuse John Galliano for Dior gown did just that.


Halle Berry (2002)
Berry's gown proved the star-making power of Oscar's red carpet  and not just for the actress. Barry not only garnered a few gasps for her win for Monster's Ball turn but also for Elie Saab whose demurely revealing design earned him a spot on the fashion map.


Grace Kelly (1955)
Her chic yet understated ice blue satin gown has since positioned the Best Actress winner as the fashion icon to beat.


Catherine Zeta-Jones (1999)
Picking another perfect hue, this fire-red Versace certified the Zorro star is siren.


Cate Blanchett (1999)
The Best Actress nominee (Elizabeth) netted the fashion accolades in this effortlessly slinky, dramatically embroidered John Galliano gown.


Audrey Hepburn (1954)
You can't have a conversation about Hollywood icons without mentioning the original gamine, whose classic Givenchy gown made the night of her Roman Holiday win even more spectacular.


Winona Ryder (2000)
Ryder turning up in this '40s-era Pauline Trigere vintage gown took the actress from grunge to glamour.


Helen Mirren (2007)
In a decadent bodice-skimming Christian Lacroix, the Best Actress winner (The Queen) gave new life to the term ''silver fox.''


Uma Thurman (1995)
Can you remember when no one, not even the devil, wore Prada? It was the Pulp Fiction star's lavender gown that launched the Italian label into the mainstream.
