Sparkling pale golds and beiges dominated the best looks at last night's Academy Awards—but there was one standout look we adored, and it wasn't worn by a nominee. Nicole Richie's floor-length beaded, slate-grey chevron stripe bell-sleeve gown was perfect—and not in a cookie-cutter black-tie way at all. The dress suited Richie's style and personality completely, we love. And as for the nominees and presenters, Cameron Diaz's Oscar de la Renta strapless gold ballgown was fit for a princess, Rachel McAdams' blue-grey printed Elie Saab took our breaths away, and we even liked Amanda Seyfried's controversial white Armani Prive—some people called it "bubble wrap," we call it brilliant. Thoughts?
