Oscars fashion: Best all around

Monday, March 8th, 2010

The girl next door did not disappoint! And why not dress a little like an Oscar when it's your night to win one? Sandra Bullock looked perfect. Love the red lip. Love the hair down – so shiny and sleek! The dress was gorgeous, and more importantly so was she.
