This is an amazing outfit. Multi-color metallic feathers! I love that it's a pant suit with the shoulder showing. And the bow-tie as an accessory is fabulous. She rocks!


Actress and singer Amanda Seyfried

At the Oscars Amanda Seyfried wears Armani Privé.

I love how the dress covers her. The fabric is going from Amanda's shoulders to her feet. She seems to be floating. It is perfect on her.

The glittery shine in H.E.R.s costume matches the shiny golden trophy. The veil covering her hair is majestic. Congratulations!

I love the yellow heels and long dress. The top looks like a bikini top. Zendaya looks youthful and happy. Her diamond necklace is fancy.
