The 89th Academy Awards were last night and to be honest I was unimpressed. I had high expectations for Neil Patrick Harris, but was left out in the cold. (Literally, it was freezing and raining yesterday.) To be honest, I don't watch movies....unless it's 3am and I'm staring at my ceiling fan and am already caught up on the DVR for the week. Because of this, I had no clue about any of the movies up for nominations. I really have no clue why I spent three hours watching. RECAP: John Travolta creeped me out,  Lady GaGa proved she should have been in the live Sound of Music, and Channing Tatum won an Oscar made out of Legos.

One thing I did love about last night's show was the simplicity and beauty of the dresses worn. There were no outlandish outfits this year (besides Lady Gaga's oven mitts) and every women looked stunning. The trend this year seemed to be simple, metallic looks. Here are my 7 favorite.

Lupita Nyong'o stunned in a custom made Calvin Klein dress made out of 6,000 pearls. Pearls alone ran a total of $150,000 to make this dress. It was beautiful, unique, and elegant.

Jenna Dewan slayed the red carpet in a white, plunging, belted Zuhair Murad gown. Not to mention she walked the carpet with the best looking accessory, her husband Channing Tatum.

Jennifer Lopez was the biggest talk of the night in a nude, sparkly, Elie Saab dress. While it may have been the Oscars, her Golden Globes were certainly on display. Awkwardly enough, Lopez was in the same gown as Robert Duvall's wife, Luciana, but Jenny From The Block wore it best. 

Jennifer Hudson wore a very simple, figure flattering, canary yellow gown made by Romona Keveza. Canary is definitely her color! The earrings, from Lorraine Schwartz, completed the look.

Anna Faris was excited for a kid-free date night with husband, Chris Pratt. She dressed up more than I have ever for a date, in a stunning, strapless, Zuhair Murad gown. She sparkled from head to toe. I love that she kept her jewelry to a minimum, leaving the focus to the crystals on the gown.

Cate Blanchett made a complete 180 from last year's 18 million dollar Armani dress to a simple black gown. She paired the timeless John Galliano gown with a turquoise Tiffany & Co. statement necklace. She pulled her hair up, drawing full attention to the piece.

Shaun Robinson wore a canary yellow Leanna Marshall gown with a thin diamond encrusted belt. Her Swarovski clutch paired perfectly.
