Here at Food52, food is always on our minds. So, as we ate our popcorn and sipped our martinis at our Oscar viewing parties, our commentary was less snark, more snack: who is smuggling cookies in their purse? Is that white dress just a red wine stain waiting to happen?
Now that the show is over, let the fun begin! Who wore what when, and what did you think of it? We thought everyone looked shiny and fabulous, of course, but a few looks in particular caught our eye. We'd like to hand out a few awards of our own -- tell us your favorites in the comments!

Shop the Story

Best We-Could-Just-Eat-You-Up-Because-You're-Adorable Dress: Quvenzhané Wallis
I love Champagne and cheese and potato chips. In fact, that would be the most dreamtastic dinner. I have two cats and I am a proud Portlander-by-birth currently residing on Manhattan's rich and wonderful Lower East Side in a closet that has no closets. In May I finished up a masters degree in Food Studies at NYU and now I am trying to figure out exactly why I did that and what that all means. It is very fun and scary but mostly fun. I like to cook and I love to bake.
