From what I saw, a few of this year's trends were neutrals, metallics, and pink, draped dresses. Also a few emerald and navy dresses...which I am definitely ok with. Love me some navy.
Let's start with some neutrals:
Cate is perfection. I don't really have anything else to say. Ugh.
Very lacy. Very romantic. Very neutral. That is all.
This reminds me of wedding dresses from the Victorian Era. And I absolutely love it. I love anything from that era. Not sure I would wear this to the Oscars. Maybe around my house when I'm pretending to be a 19th century British heiress.
Flash forward 150 years later...this is what a lot of wedding dresses look like now. I'm glad cap sleeves are coming back. Strapless dresses don't really work on me since I'm not gifted in the upper body area.
This is like the exact same dress. I'm obsessed with this one though for some reason. I might actually get married in this dress one day.
I can't help but think of this as the offspring of a trendy wedding gown and a prom dress. I don't hate it, but I can't stop thinking that.

This one is gray. I can't decide if I like it.
And another gray one, but with some shimmer. Jessica Biel can really do no wrong. I would look so washed out in this dress. But it's sparkly!
Which is a great transition into the metallic dresses of the evening!!!
Lots of shiny-ness going on with these. A lot of the metallics were also in more neutral shades as we just saw...just with a little more pizazz.
Silver, flapper-esque dress. Very 1920s. If only she had one of those feather headband thingys.
Gold and sparkly. I would expect nothing less from a figure skater. She might be able to cut off the bottom and do one of her routines in it one day.
This dress is sooooo pretty, but it makes her look kind of...thick. Wait, can I say that about her? I feel like God might strike me down. I want it to be more form fitting though. Show off that one leg, Angie!
This is just straight up one of the classiest dresses I've ever seen. Old Hollywood meets modern sexiness. And I LOVE her hair!
Art Deco architecture on a dress! The 1920s are making a comeback! That was my first reaction to this dress. Glamorous is also a word that comes to mind. I like it on her.
And even more gold. Actually a very pretty dress. Kudos for rocking that at age 68.
Now on to the last trend of the evening...pink hues with some form of a cape/scarf/shawl.
It looks like a Greek goddesses' dress that was put into the washer with a pink sock. But of course, being Penelope Cruz, it works.
One of the most talked about dresses of the evening. This is not my style, but it's so perfect for the Oscars, especially for the wife of a nominee.
I've seen this style a lot in weddings as a bridesmaid dress. I have no idea what this style is called, but it's pretty in right now. I would really want someone to follow me around with a big fan if I was wearing this. It's very flowy...

Time for my best and worst dressed!
I'm not even going to talk about this dress again. Words are just not enough.
Everything about these two is right. So put together and classy. Nothing overdone...just very classic. Kudos for Olivia not wearing anything crazy while pregnant. (See next picture.)

Ugh. No. You do NOT wear a dress like this when you are that pregnant with twins. Like...ever. It just looks so wrong. SO WRONG. She looks unbelievable as a pregnant woman, but the fit of the dress is incredibly unflattering. You know it's bad when I can't stop staring at her enormous belly while Chris Hemsworth is standing right next to her.

I don't have to explain this. He wore shorts with a tuxedo. At the Oscars.
