The Bosh's Best and Worst Dressed of the Oscars

Hilary Swank
This year's Academy Awards were all about sleek sophistication and old Hollywood glamour when it came to the wardrobe. Even Melissa and Joan Rivers struggled to find some flukes, eventually declaring that they had chosen no Worst Dressed. Without doubt, though, the dress that made the biggest impression was Hilary Swank's navy blue Guy Laroche. Opting for long sleeves and an exposed back, the Best Actress winner stood out among a sea of strapless looks. The jury is still out on the gown, with Swank topping many best and worst dressed looks.

Trends at the show included solid colors, trains, strapless tops and gold. Actresses who favored the train notably included Renee Zellweger in Carolina Herrera, Sophie Okonedo in Rochas, Salma Hayek in Prada and Charlize Theron in Dior. Gold wasn't just seen on Oscar this year. It was the color of choice for many an attendee like Oprah in Vera Wang, Gwyneth Paltrow in Stella McCartney, Penelope Cruz in Oscar de la Renta and Star Jones. Nearly every lady was seen in strapless and solid colors.

Our picks for the Top 5 Best and Worst Dressed after the jump

The Bosh's Top 5 Best Dressed

5. Natalie Portman - looked stunning in a grey, Grecian Lanvin. She would have made it further up the list had the color been more flattering.

4. Kirsten Dunst - did right eschewing her current bag lady look for a classy, lace Chanel.

3. Oprah Winfrey - Oprah's out to prove herself as a true glamorous diva after slimming down to a size ten. She looked fabulous in a gold Vera Wang.

2. Catalina Sandino Moreno - though most viewers probably had no clue who Catalina was when the show began, the Best Actress nominee got well-deserved attention with her bejeweled backless Roberto Cavali gown. Que bonita!

1. Maggie Gyllenhaal - she has made many missteps when it comes to the red carpet, but she blew everyone else out of the water in her beige Prada dress with a sequined belt and simple jewels. The gown was modern and lovely, making Maggie a fashion icon.

The Bosh's Top 5 Worst Dressed

5. Johnny Depp - you can't expect much from an expatriate with a "don't give a f**k" attitude. Still, that blue suit is hideous.

4. Beyonce Knowles - there was nothing wrong with the dress that Beyonce wore while performing "Learn to be Lonely" from the Phantom of the Opera. It was actually quite lovely. The bad part was her bling; it was way over the top.

3. While many declared Cate Blanchett to be one of the night's best dressed in her Valentino Couture, she looked washed out in the yellow shade, which clashed terribly with the burgundy sash.

2. Scarlett Johansson looked as if she stuck her fingers in the toaster, arriving with the frizziest mop top that Oscar has seen in years. Her Roland Mouret gown, though beautiful, looked uncomfortable and paper stiff.

1. Oh Melanie Griffith. What were you thinking? There are no words.
