Zapwater's Favorite Oscar 2015 Looks + Moments:

David Zapata: Marion Cotillard in Dior Couture

Also, have to give a shout out to Jared Leto! My favorite moment was the opening number, which Neil Patrick Harris did while wearing Zapwater client,

Morgan Bellock: Emma Stone in Eli Saab Haute Couture

My pic for best dressed would have to be Emma Stone! As for the best moment, I would have to say when NPK did the Birdman spoof and came out on the stage in his underwear.

Annie Block: Margot Robbie in Saint Laurent

My favorite look was Margot Robbie. That necklace and those lips were incredible. It’s how I want to look every day. Favorite moment was when Eddie Redmayne won the Oscar. I love when first timers win! Everyone expected Michael Keaton to win. Eddie seemed so genuinely surprised and excited.

Sophia Bly: Scarlett Johansson in Atelier Versace

Scar Jo for the win!

Katie Foley: Reese Witherspoon in Tom Ford

Timeless, classic and elegant in Tom Ford. Reese always knows how to bring it!

Alana Horinko: Emma Stone in Eli Saab Haute Couture

I thought Emma Stone looked stunning last night. Aside from the Glory performance and Lady Gaga’s tribute to The Sound of Music, I’d say my favorite moments were a tie between the acceptance speeches of Graham Moore and Patricia Arquette.

Jenn Lake: Neil Patrick Harris in custom Brunello Cucinelli and Ox and Bull cufflinks

My favorite look was Neil Patrick Harris, of course - wearing Ox & Bull tuxedo and stud set on the red carpet and the opening number. His opener was one of my favorite moments - he's so talented!

Brigid Parr: Rosamund Pike in Givenchy Haute Couture

I had a few favorites, but one of my best dressed of the evening was Rosamund Pike. She’s been lackluster on the red carpet thus far during award season, but she really brought it on Oscar night. I’m completely obsessed with the scalloped cut of the neckline, and the color and fit was spot on. My favorite moment was Patricia Arquette’s speech and Meryl Streep’s reaction.

Stephanie Poquette: Naomi Watts in Armani Prive

Naomi, Naomi, can you do any wrong? That dress, the perfect hair and dark lip = love and serious red carpet moment. While I tuned in for the movies - of course! - Lady Gaga SLAYING for The Sound of Music tribute was by far the biggest highlight. Call me a Fair Weather Monster, but that performance has restored my faith!

Huong Luu-Spais: J.Lo in Elie Saab Couture

J.Lo in Elie Saab!

Stephanie Reay: Sienna Miller in Oscar de la Renta

I love The Sound of Music, so Lady Gaga’s tribute to its 50th anniversary was amazing.
