So, did you watch 'em? I personally enjoyed the show, even if it was over three hours long. I think Up may have been the only nominated film that I HAVE seen and can attest to its brilliance and charm. See it. And I loved Steve and Alec as hosts. Their dry, witty, and self-deprecating humor was right up my alley and left me laughing out loud time and time again. As for fashion, all in all it was a lackluster Red Carpet event. I waited. And waited. And waited to be wowed. I tried to love Kate Winslet's dress choice. But no. My eyes lit up at the top of Sandra's sparkly gown. Then I saw the bottom and it looked like cheap, iridescent rayon. Damn. I loved Mo'Nique's color choice but the overall design was nothing special. And then these two came on stage and redeemed my waning admiration for celebrity style...
I fell in love with both dresses when I saw each of these women walk on stage last night and couldn't choose a favorite. Then I placed their images side by side in Photoshop and realized just how similar the dresses are. So it's a tie. Both designed by Versace, these two stunning gowns were comprised of a perfectly fitting bodice set atop layers of flowing ruffles made in dream-like colors. Heavenly. And Elizabeth Banks and Demi Moore looked heavenly wearing them.
I'm not Cameron Diaz's biggest fan. She was pretty adorable when she danced in Charlie's Angels but other than that, meh. I do, however, looove the way she looked last night. Her hair, her red lipstick, and her sparkly Oscar de la Renta (my fave designer) lit up the stage. Simply put, she just looks so pretty!
I think Kristen Stewart is the worst excuse for an actress. She doesn't seem to appreciate the amazing opportunities she's been given considering her lack of talent. And in a nutshell, I don't like her. Plus I never thought I'd say this seeing as the grumpy teen typically looks like she rolled out of bed when she walks the red carpet, but last night, she nailed it. Her Monique Lhullier gown was just perfect. The tailoring, the shape, the color. I loved this look. I originally had her in second place but then realized she needed a necklace. Something gold would have been the perfect finishing touch. Something gold with a big emerald. Yep. That would've done it.
the gold beading on black was fabulous
love the print, the colors, and the fit
This dress epitomizes spring, and I need spring in my life. Today was rainy and 40. Boo.
She annoys me. Why was she at the Oscars? Whatever.
I loved her dress, bracelet, and hair. She looked so grown up!
It's no secret I love her. And this dress. 9 times out of 10 she looks smashing on the Red Carpet. Did I just say "smashing?" Interesting...
I don't know who they are but bravo to them.
I want the non-pregnant version of this gown. The neckline is to die for. And don't get me started on the bright and cheery color. This photo doesn't do it justice.
Awesome dress. That's all I have to say about that.
I don't know anything about this lovely 21-year-old Zimbabwean woman other than the fact that she was born severely disabled and has the most beautiful singing voice. I am now eager to see the Oscar-winning documentary about her life of struggles and triumph. I can't fathom the life she's led given her physical disabilities, but wow does she look good on the Red Carpet. The rosettes along the neckline and her hairpiece are perfection.
Charlize Theron in ???
I mean, really? Why didn't she just glue two Cinnabons to the dress?
Tom Ford and Jake Gyllenhaal
Mark Boal. Brilliant journalist/writer/man. THIS is my favorite hairstyle on a guy. Is it long? Short? I never know how to describe it to people but this. is. it.
And I'll leave you all with one last image. Gerry. Because in my mind, he and I are already on a first name basis.
My Favorite Moments
