I have so many favorites this year from the red carpet of the Academy Awards. Let’s get started on what I loved. And let’s just assume if some gowns didn’t make this post, then they were either too safe or not my favorites. This year’s best-dressed lists should include at least one of these ladies in the top 10.

Topping my best-dressed list of the night is Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o. The 12 Years A Slave actress wore a beautiful light blue silk Prada gown with pleats along with Prada platform sandals and a Prada raso clutch. She completed the look with Fred Leighton jewels. From her hair and makeup to her dance-a-long with Pharrell Williams during his “Happy” performance, Lupita was the clear winner of the night.

On Sunday, audiences were treated to one of the biggest music awards shows. Celebrating the heavy hitters and chart toppers, the Billboard Music Awards kicked off in Las Vegas. Celebrities and artists were in full-force at the show and on the red carpet. With tributes to some of the greatest musical artists of all time like Whitney Houston, Donna Summer and Adam Yauch, it was truly a star-studded event. While there were a few fashionable moments on the carpet, it wasn’t exactly as thrilling as you’d expect of an awards show that honors the best in music. But I’ll let you be the judge.

Singer Alicia Keys wasn’t my favorite, but I have to admit this is the best I’ve seen her lately on the red carpet. The songstress wore a figure-hugging black Azzedine Alaia Couture gown with Repossi jewelry and Brian Atwood pumps. I loved the hour-glass silhouette and her hair and makeup. Many stars have taken advantage of the completely covered style, and I thought she was sexy and sophisticated without going too vulgar. Jordin Sparks in a lace Diane von Furstenberg frock was pretty demure, but I loved the color. I wish she had gone with a different shoe color in maybe nude or silver to match her David Yurman jewelry. Her side-swept pony kept the look sleek and polished.
