The red carpet at the 2012 Oscars was practically covered in white dresses (the most popular color worn at the 2012 Oscars!). Whether sparkly, ethereal, or just simple elegance, celebrity ladies decided they have had it enough with winter and donned some of the most gorgeous white dresses ever seen at the Oscars.

Without a doubt, my two favorite white dresses are Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford and Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji. Both ladies wore their dresses flawlessly.

Gwyneth Paltrow wore a stunning white column dress and floor length cape by Tom Ford.  I love it...definitely one of my favorites!  She finished her look with Anna Hu Haute Joaillerie diamond cuff and ring  and Jimmy Choo “Koko” Platform Sandals.

FYI: Gwyneth Paltrow's Tom Ford dress was fresh off the Tom Ford fall 2012 runway show.  The dress made it's debut during London Fashion Week just a few days ago!

Which is your favorite?

She is definitely one of the best dressed of the night!
