Oscar recap!

Now that we’ve had a day to let the fashion sink in, it’s time to round up the favorites! Let’s start with Mila Kunis, radiant in Elie Saab.

I wanted to start with my own personal red carpet favorites (other critics be darned!) and why I think they worked. I’ll also slide in some great ways to accessorize like the stars.
