Here is a sampling of the best, gorgeous and beautiful dresses and gowns worn at the 79th Oscar Award Ceremony. This year, strapless dresses were in majority. This is a new trend. As usual, there were some stars who maintained the Hollywood story of wearing the finest for the occasion. Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez and many other leading ladies paraded their wear and made their designers happy. This year's trends have been noticed from the Golden Globe award, Grammy award and Oscar ceremonies. In the next few months, ABS will be busy trying to emulate some of the cuts shown tonight. Mr. Allen will make sure that most young women who are on a budget get one of these beautiful dresses and gowns. Tonight, Jennifer Hudson won the best supporting actress award for Dreamgirls. Forrest Whitaker had a superb year. He crowned it with the Best Actor award for "The Last King of Scotland." He almost brought attendees to tears, from Fresh Prince of Belair to Leonard Di Caprio. Martin Scorcese won the best Director award, defeating Clint Eastwood's Letters from Iwo Jima. That is the nature of the beast.
