Are You Sick of Oscar Talk, Yet?
Too bad...I have to weigh in with my thoughts on the fashion that walked the red carpet Sunday night.
Lupita was the big winner of the night.
Best Supporting Actress, Best Speech...and for many Best dress.
She was was second favorite dress and it was amazing!
She was a breath of fresh air!
Everyone was talking about the headband. It acted as a simple crown for the princess of the night.
I kept thinking I wonder if that headband is hurting her right behind her ears?
You know how they do. After you've worn them a few hours they start hurting that
bone behind your ears. I was hoping it wasn't hurting her.
But I bet is was. I've never had a headband that would stay on my head that didn't hurt.
I loved the color of the gown, although under strong lights it looked a little washed out.
I wished it was just one shade darker.
Amy Adams wore blue. Many said this gown was not glamorous enough.
But it certainly fit her like a dream. Hard to fault a dress that fits like that.
This is probably the best I've seen Sandra look. I think it's kind of boring.
But it is a knock out. I just think I've seen this dress before in a different color in a different year.
And rounding out the blue crew....Liza with a Z.
At first I thought she looked pretty good. I liked the blue streak in her hair and was glad to see her wearing a color other than black or red.
Then I noticed the unfortunate lack of undergarments!
Does she not have anyone that knows her that can say..."Liza...Put on a Bra!"
She was there with her sister...so surely Lorna could have said..."I'm not getting in the limo with you unless you go back in and put on a bra!"
But then..maybe she did. There have been times in my own life when I've told my own sister to
go in and put on a bra and it was met with discord and refusal.
Still I will never get that above image out of my head....
and now neither will you!
Ann Hathaway wore a breast plate this year...I wonder if this was because she was accused
of showing a little nip in her satin gown last year?
I didn't really care for this dress. I didn't mind the jewels but having them go around her waist
made her waist look wide. Which it is not.
I wanted to like this dress Julia was wearing but I just didn't.
I think because the fabric looked stiff. If it had been drapier, I probably would have liked it.
Love Meryl. I think really she should have won best actress.
She was amazing in August Osage County.
You really didn't like her...and I thought it was impossible to not like Meryl.
Kate Blanchett was excellent in Blue Jasmine and deserved the win.
But man....Meryl looked awful in her movie and was totally believable.
You forgot it was Meryl.
Ok, Meryl's dress...I love it here...I didn't think it looked very good when she was sitting down.
But I do like it here although its a little bland in the color department.
Check out the skeleton in gold beads behind her. That girls needs food immediately!
Gabby looked the prettiest I've seen her look. I really loved this dress on her.
She's all out there in radiant orchid.
I love that fabric the skirt is made of. All the little petals.
I do not like the belt thing. I wish something more interesting had been done and not centered.
I think it would have been prettier set to the side instead.
It's a good color on her.
Charlize did typical Charlize. She looks like a award statue herself.
This is gorgeous. But I'm a little tired of her looking like a goddess.
I'd kind of like to see her look a little more real.
She looks just like that famous painting Madame X.
Ok, maybe not just like her but you see the similarities.
Ireland Baldwin is a beautiful girl but her dress was terrible.
It looks cheap...I'm sure it wasn't but it looks it.
Continuing with the reds...Jennifer Lawrence was great in this orangy red dress with peplum.
I loved this dress worn by Bette Midler! Just loved it.
Now we go into a sea of flesh tones....
I like dresses in this color way...but there were too many of them.
I hate this dress that Goldie Hawn is wearing..too drapey. Not very flattering.
She needs to take notes from Helen Mirren who always looks beautiful.
But this dress is very Goldie except for the color.
Jessica Biel's dress was tasteful although I don't think it was the best color for her.
She looks really washed out.
Do not like this dress on Kristen Bell. It has too many things going on.
Many raved about Kate Hudson's dress saying it was old Hollywood Glamour.
It was...but I didn't think it really seemed like her.
Matthew's wife looked radiant in this soft pink. So unusual that the dress had sleeves.
So tasteful...pretty and elegant.
Many didn't like Angelina's dress. I thought it looked pretty during the telecast.
But looks dumpy in the photos. It makes her look fat and we know she is not.
But I think it was just the way it photographed. Look at the silhouette here!
Here...it's wonderful! Maybe she has gained a little...that would be a good thing.
This is Channing Tatum's wife.
I have to admit I've managed to not retain her name and I'm not even going to look it up.
I'd rather pretend that Channing Tatum didn't have a wife.
But I LOVE this dress on her. One of my very favorites.
Here they are together...He's the best accessory ever!
I didn't like Jennifer's dress at first until I saw her walk across the stage
and the skirt was really fun the way it moved.
I think her hair is really dull. But it rained earlier in the day. My hair would have been a dud too.
Another pale dress. I want to like this on Penelope but I don't.
I thinks it doesn't need all the drape on that one arm.
This is a huge departure for her. She usually dresses all sexy.
It's different to see her channel Audrey Hepburn.
Kristin Chenoweth wore an art deco influenced gown.
It's flowy yet structured.
Lady GaGa had the same idea but in pale pink.
I really liked this dress worn by Ellen's girlfriend, Portia.
but my favorite of the night was.....
Kate Blanchett in all this sparkly wonder.
Oh...this was soooo marvelous.
My only criticism...that it might be a little young for her.
Seems like a dress someone in their 20's should wear.
But she was perfection in it with perfect hair and perfect makeup.
What is up with everyone having nude lips?
The nude lips work here...although I would have done just a teeny bit more color.
My only complaint - Those big dangly earrings.
I think they are too long.
This dress has such classic lines....and those earrings just don't.
Well, those are my opinions of this year's Academy Awards dresses.
Yes, I'm full of criticism...
I'm available as a stylist for any of these actresses for next year!
Which was your favorite dress?
