2011 Oscars Reese Witherspoon in Armani Prive.jpg

Playing it ultra-safe at the Oscars was Reese Witherspoon, who didn't quite hit the nail on the head in this ensemble. While classic and elegant should never been overlooked, does Reese's black strapless Armani Privé gown border on the boring side? You tell me.

The contrasting white satin band around the bust line did succeed in adding a touch of class, however I can't help but feel that Reese could have done a little better. I won't deny that working the whole '60s vibe does tend to suit the actress (cue the beehive pony tail), but this wasn't one of the stand-out red carpet looks of the night. Perhaps I've been spoilt by all the fantastic Oscars fashion this year.
