This black sparkly strapless Oscar De La Renta 2009 gown worn by Amy Adams to the Academy Awards is so lovely, I think it would work on just about anyone. Amy Adams must have felt so enchanted (pun intended) that evening, Oscar’s gown for the Oscars. I will now channel Joan Rivers and share why I love this look: I love a big statement with jewels and baubles, especially with a black dress such as what Amy did with her huge emeralds. Angelina Jolie had the same style for the Oscars that year wearing a sleek black dress and big green earrings. Simple is stunning.
Our cupcake is wearing a sparkly black gown and a vintage gold brooch, she might be sweet, but tonight she is leaving the kitchen and going to stay up till dawn, leaving a trail of frosting and glitter, look out George Clooney.

I am admittedly a huge fan of the Oscar’s for the gowns (Oh and the sweet speeches, music, and I love celebrating films) so I wanted to share that love with a cupcake wrapper designed to playfully (and respectively), honor the Nina Ricci gown worn by Reese Witherspoon at the 2007 Academy Awards.
The deep purple bustier Nina Ricci gown and all the luscious scalloped layers is elegant and whimsical. Reese is such a gorgeous lady and knows when to make a moment all about her dress, with her sleek hair, and minimal jewelry. I certainly would like to walk in this gown, but I would LOVE to dance in this gown, this gown was made for moving and swaying on a dance floor, and going to bed at 4 a.m.
Our equally beautiful cupcake is wearing a scalloped layered gown of dark eggplant and lavender, no jewelry for this gal tonight, she decide to focus on her frosting and had a professional stylist make her lemon cream cheese shine tonight.
What are some of your favorite Oscar gowns? Please share your comments. We love to hear from you!
