1. Dress 1: Shabby Apple
This is a shape that I don't normally choose, but I like the elegance of it. It's simple yet perfect for the tradition of the Oscar nominations. My only concern is if this color will wash me out on camera, but like Jennifer said when she submitted this dress, "I know you want bright colors, but I love the lightness and texture on this- maybe have some deep red lipstick in hand? A la old Hollywood."
2. Dress 2: ModCloth
ModCloth was a runner-up in 2011, but the fit was a bit off. Let's hope this year I got it right. The color is great for camera and it has a bit of Mad Men glamour that is perfect for the sophistication of the event that morning. As Robin also mentioned when she submitted this dress on Facebook, "They have wonderful good looks - really affordable too!"
Both dresses should arrive next week just in time for the Oscar Nominations. Which one is your favorite?
