Oscars 2015 Best Dressed

Sunday night’s Oscars marked the end of another glittering award season! I have to admit, this year’s red carpets had more misses than hits, hence the reason why I didn’t feature looks from many of the other shows this season. However, the following lovely ladies (and their teams of stylists) definitely deserve praise for their show stopping looks at the 87th Academy Awards! Here are my Best Dressed for the 2015 Oscars:
