Oscar's Golden (Brown) Ladies

So, the minute the Oscars were over, I dutifully scoured the internet for the best dresses from the red carpet and after parties. Along with the nominees, the usual suspects were out in force, and they looked great, especially Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Alba.

And of course, as always, I'm looking over Jennifer's shoulder and Charlize's hair for a black star, any black star, just to see what the chile is wearing. Finally, I spot Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and Jada didn't disappoint in brilliant royal blue Roberto Cavalli. Queen Latifah, my fellow Jersey Girl, was stunning in a strapless black number by Carmen Marc Valvo -- but where were my other girls?

Hidden in the recesses of Wireimage and black message boards of course:

Gabrielle Union, Sanaa Lathan and Tracee Ellis Ross all looked beautiful at the Vanity Fair party, but I have no idea who designed any of their gowns or cocktail dresses. Ditto for Joy Bryant, Regina King, the always on-point Garcelle Beavais-Nilon and newcomer Terry Pheto (from the Oscar winner Tsotsi of South Africa.) Unless you make Us Weekly, E! or Style.com, good luck with that! In any event, let's hope we see these ladies in a theater near you soon.

(Sorry if the pictures are a little weird. I haven't mastered that part of blogging yet.)
