After all the chatters about the best dressed, the worst dressed and so on, here you have our personal ranking of the red carpet at the Oscar night 2014.
As usual there have been so many stunning dresses that is really difficult to choose the one to prefer.

No sleeves in favour of strapless dresses: Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams were simply gorgeous in their amazing monocolour dresses.
Women in pink: Penelope Cruz, Jada Pinkett Smith and Camila Alves.

But the greatest trend of the event has been the glittering nude that has been declared as the the color of the night: Cate Blanchett, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Jessica Biel sparkled in such a resplendent nuance.

Queen of timeless elegance Meryl Streep with a black and white dress which established her great presence and personality.

Among all these great stars and dresses this year our personal Oscar goes to Lupita Nyong’o which have gained the first place on the podium: elegant, simply and charming, with a solar smile that enchants the audience emphasized by a marvellous dress reminiscent of the Greek divinities, a goddess among the stars!
