The 2014 Oscars Best Dressed: Jared Leto?

 You knew it was coming, his man-bun awarded him a shout out in my Golden Globe Best Dressed post, and to be completely honest I'm not sure if it was actually what he was wearing or how amazing his acceptance speech for Best Supporting Male in "Dallas Buyers Club" was or that he brought his stunning mother as his date to both award shows, but whatever Jared Leto is selling we are all buying.

He stunned in a Saint Laurent suit and although he didn't sport the man-bun, his hair completed the overall look quite nicely.

The women showed up, as usual, dressed to kill. My top picks for women included: Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace, shocking I know, Naomi Watts in Calvin Klein Collection, and I'd like to point out that Portia de Rossi was possibly the most fashion-forward in a Naeem Khan, laser-cut outs will have their day in the sun this Spring/Summer season.
