Oscar color trend: purple, plum and lavender

The 2011 Academy Awards aired Sunday and, as we all know, it’s the biggest night of the year in Hollywood. As usual, celebrities brought their A-game to the red carpet.

Purple reigned on the red carpet

Jennifer Hudson stole the show with her seductive (and skinny) tangerine gown and Helena Bonham Carter looked stunning in black (as opposed to her odd SAG Awards get up), but the color of the night was clearly purple.

Leading the purple posse were Cate Blanchett, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis and a glowing Natalie Portman.

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett

Blanchett’s pale lavender Givenchy Couture gown was stunning. At first glance, the yellow pearls and “who’s the fairest of them all” mirror-like front were a little odd, but they totally grew on me. And yes, Cate was the fairest of them all.

Mila Kunis

Mila Kunis

Mila Kunis looked like she might have been pulling a Lil’ Kim with those purple pasties covering her bust area, but she looked super sexy and young and fresh in her lavender lace and silk organza gown by Elie Saab Haute Couture.

Scarlett Johansson

Scar Jo

Scarlett Johansson, newly single, looked like she was on the prowl in her skin tight, bra-baring, see-through purple lace Dolce & Gabbana gown.

Amy Adams

Amy Adams

Amy Adams was a miss in this Grimace get up. I liked the dress alone, but the green bracelet and long necklace looked tacky and did not go with the deep-violet, sparkly cap sleeve dress by L’Wren Scott.

Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman looked subdued and elegant in a flowy, baby bump covering, deep-purple off-the-shoulder silk chiffon gown by Rodarte.

PS: Love the tassel earrings by Tiffany & Co!
