Look We Love: Oscar's 2014 Edition

 If you're like us, the most exciting part of awards season is the red carpet fashion.  The following are our superlatives from the 2014 Oscar Awards.  We'll start with the best dressed gentlemen, since they are so often overlooked.

Jared Leto steps out of the box in a white Saint Laurent dinner jacket complete with red bow tie and Neil Lane jewelry.

Kevin Spacey looks ultra dapper in a midnight blue tux from Burberry.

The best-dressed couple award would have to go to the eternally stylish Diane Kruger in Valentino and her handsome date, Pacey Whitter - oops, we mean - Josh Jackson, in a chocolate Berluti tux at the Vanity Fair party.

The trend of the evening was definitely frosty gowns in all shades of metallic white.

Jessica Biel's Chanel gown was beautiful, while her Tiffany accessories and messy hair left us a little bored.

Naomi Watts looked super-sexy in tailored Calvin Klein and unique Bulgari jewels.

Kate Hudson usually gets it right on the red carpet and this Versace and Neil Lane combo just may be her best yet.

Cate Blanchett is our best dressed pick for the evening, per usual.  Her Armani Prive gown and 1940s coiffure were pure glamour.

A few honorable mentions:

Lady Gaga looked other-worldly in this Versace creation and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

Several ladies went low key in black this year.  While critics have raved about Charlize Theron's dress, we think Anne Hathaway did it better in Gucci and Neil Lane.

Jennifer Lawrence's hair and Neil Lane accessories were stunning, but the Dior dress was a little too reminiscent of Michelle Williams's Louis Vuitton ensemble from the 2012 Oscar's, pictured below.

 The belle of the ball was definitely Lupita Nyong'o in custom Prada and stunning Fred Leighton jewelry.  This was truly her night to shine and while she pops in a more saturated color, this princess-style gown worked beautifully for her special night.

Who were your favorites from the evening?
