Oscars 2014 Best, Dressed

So you guys lucked up with only getting a "Top 5" out of me for the Golden Globes this year. However, choosing only five looks from last night's Oscars seemed nearly I chose 10. Enjoy!

10. Amy Adams in Gucci Premiere | Peplum seemed to be a huge trend last night and I can see why. It's wildly flattering and on Adams, it was stunning. The navy color she chose also highlighted her hair and eye colors. 

9. Meryl Streep in Lanvin | This should come as no surprise. After all she's the queen; she has to look like royalty. She definitely didn't disappoint in this black and white draped number. 

8. Lady Gaga in Atelier Versace | I actually didn't even see this gown on Gaga until this morning as I was compiling this list. She looks fabulous and her natural styling of late is really doing it for me. Thumbs up!

7. Camila Alves McConaughey in Gabriela Cadena | I love her. I know nothing about her but she seems like a wonderful wife and mother, all while being absolutely flawless. Her skin tone against this powder pink was perfect. Did I mention I love her? Because I do.

6. Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen | If Meryl Streep is queen then I think it's officially safe to say that Bullock is setting herself up to be next in succession. Last night she dazzled. Every hair in place, makeup applied to perfection, and can we talk about the fit of this gown? Lovely. 

5. Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture | Swoon. Lawrence carries herself like the leading lady she truly is. Her styling is always age-appropriate (she's only 23!), fun, edgy, but always elegant. It almost makes you forget about what a lovable, goofball she really is. 

4. Anne Hathaway in Gucci | Another Gucci number to add to the list, but this one is strikingly different from Adams'. Hathaway has done a similar neckline before and it really works on her. The jewels made the gown both edgy and classy, something that's very tricky but Hathaway seemed to pull it off with ease.

3. Kerry Washington in Jason Wu | Washington is just glowing isn't she? At each awards show this season she has tastefully, and proudly, shown off her baby bump. Last night was no exception and she looked fabulous chowing down on the pizza that Ellen DeGeneres bought for the audience!

2. Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab Haute Couture | Jolie is usually stunning but something about her last night just seemed even more incredible. Metallic was another trend on the Oscars red carpet and Jolie carried it with effortless grace. Well done. 

1. Lupita Nyong'o in Prada | Nyong'o was the belle of the ball; in fact she received several comparisons on social media to Cinderella. She also shared in an interview before the show that she had a hand in designing the gown which was inspired by champagne bubbles. Nyong'o is a solidified It Girl after winning Best Supporting Actress last night, but do I smell a design collaboration down the line? I sure hope so!

Were there any show stoppers that didn't make the list? Share your favorites below!
