Kerry Washington talking Olivia Pope nails on the red carpet.
Aisha Tyler in Jean Fares Couture at the Elton John AIDS Foundation party.
Queen Latifah in Badgley Mischka. I wonder if she is wearing one of her CoverGirl Queen Collection Jumbo Gloss Balms on her lips? That looks like Electric Flamingo to me! Those balms are one of my new favorites, but I like Mulberry Mousse.
Rashida Jones glittering in Vivienne Westwood.
Quvenzhané Wallis in Armani and her signature puppy purse. I am sure it was due to Quvenzhané that Poochie & Co. has completely sold out of their inventory of puppy purses!
Stacy Keibler in Naeem Khan. I loooved his Fall 2013 show and Stacy wore one of my favorite looks from the collection.
Naomie Harris and her daring split got mixed reviews, but overall, I liked her look. It was designed by Michael Badger, a Ghanaian-born design student at Savannah College of Art and Design, who was mentored throughout the design process by Vivienne Westwood.
Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji. I think her seeming loyalty to him is serving her well.
Solange Knowles in a sunshiney yellow Emilio Pucci and her signature afro.
First Lady Michelle Obama's surprise appearance to present the award for Best Picture in a gorgeous, custom Naeem Khan. She was in the same gown she wore for the Governors' Ball earlier in the evening.
