Today’s Matchup: Sandra Bullock vs. Nicole Kidman

Let the heated debating, name-calling and dress defending begin! Because today we’re kicking off a voting bracket to choose the most gorgeous Academy Awards look from the last 10 years. It’s sort of like March Madness with college basketball, only fewer mesh tank tops, way bigger names and you get to decide the outcome.

We’re starting with 16 stunning dresses, and every day we’ll open up the poll for a new style showdown. First up are Mila Kunis in Elie Saab and Natalie Portman in Rodarte. Check out their looks, read which one our editor selected as her favorite, weigh the important choices in your mind and when you’re good and ready, cast your vote. (You can pick your winner in the blog post –best for mobile!– on today’s post or on the actual bracket page.)

The finalist will be revealed the following day, at which point the poll for the next matchup will open. We’ll have a Final Four the week before the Oscars and the top dress will be revealed just before the show.

So, go find your judgement pants, put them on and help us choose the best Oscars dress of the past decade!

Natalie Portman Goes Blonde

Natalie Portman is having a blonde moment!

Attending a dinner for choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied’s L.A. Dance Project, the Oscar winner debuted her lighter locks (which managed to outshine her white Dior gown) at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

She rarely makes drastic hair changes, but she’s not the only one who’s recently ditched her brunette roots: Perhaps she’s taking a style cue from, say, Miley Cyrus?

Portman actually had L.A. colorist Tracey Cunningham switch up her ‘do for a role.

“My mom says I’m like a different person,” the Black Swan star, mom to 1-year-old Aleph, told The Hollywood Reporter. “I did it just a couple of days ago.”

“Natalie makes a beautiful blonde!” Cunningham says of the switch-up, which she achieved with Redken’s Blonde Dimensions. “She needed to make the change for an upcoming movie role, so we achieved a gorgeous, multi-dimensional golden honey blonde.” Tell us: Do you prefer Portman as a blonde?
