Who are you wearing?

Ah, the infamous question asked to all the stars as they traipse down the Oscar red carpet.  Personally I watch the Oscars more for the awards and the awkward exchange of the Oscar statuette from presenter to winner but the fashion is definitely a sweet afterthought.

In anticipation of this year's Academy Awards (Sunday, Feb. 22) I will count down my favorite gowns from past ceremonies.  They are in no particular order, the fabulousness of all the dresses is pretty much even.

Here's the first one...

Cate Blanchett always turns it out on the red carpet.  She has impeccable taste (or at least her stylist does and she's smart enough to listen to him/her) and her body is like a canvas for all those beautiful clothes.  

This Armani Prive gunmetal number she wore to the 2007 ceremony, when she was nominated for not one but two performances, is no exception.  I remember watching her on the pre-show interviews and being blown away with how chic and sophisticated she looked.  It looks like the dress was just poured over her and adhered to her body.  Perfection.
