I was thrilled by Patricia Arquette's speech at this year's Oscars.
Jesus looks on in approval.
It thrilled Meryl Streep and J Lo too.
Patricia received a lot of heat after her speech because people thought she was implying
that gays and people of color did not include women.
Of course she meant ALL women!
I was super proud of her. So glad she put it out there.
If you think there is equal pay for women...you have not been working.
Even at jobs where it is guaranteed equal pay.
Women just don't get promoted...hmmmm funny how that is.
So good for you Patricia saying what should have been said ages ago!
Now let's talk fashion. Some would say talking about how a woman is dressed is demeaning to women.
I don't think so...we love fashion...it's ok to critique the fashions themselves.
First, dresses I liked....
Somehow it was understated and I thought perfect for her.
Scarlett Johanssen rocked it but I just thought the necklace was too much.
I'm not crazy about the flowers around the hips...the only thing that keeps it from being a favorite.
I did like the necklace but not so much with this dress.
This necklace should be worn with something much lighter.
I actually have a necklace much like this. It's great with white....I think not so good with black.
Chloe Grace Moretz is a beautiful girl but her posture is terrible and someone needs to tell her
that just cause there are pockets in your dress does not mean you use them.
I think this could have been good if she'd stood up straight and kept her hands out of the pockets.
Naomi Watts' dress was very modern and I thought I should hate it
but I didn't. It was a nice change of pace. She wore it great!
Loved this dress on her and her spanks did not let her down.
They did the job. Gorgeous dress on one of our national treasures.
interviewing stars on the red carpet.
I think she was a little over dressed...like she was trying to steal the spotlight.
But she looks magnificent.
On the other hand, Lara Spencer looked pretty, modern and appropriate for interviewing.
One thing I really liked were her shoes. So many wear high heeled sandals and
I think many gowns look better with actual shoes, not sandals. These were perfect.
I think this dress is perfect for Oscars. She looked better than many of the nominees.
It wasn't my favorite but it was a winner.
This was a nice dress for her...although she seems to be lacking in the curve department.
I loved seeing her and her Mom bicker on the red carpet.
Jessica Chastain got curves. I never thought of her as a vava voom type.
But this dress shows off her figure.
Yet it seems kind of old fashion for her.
I just didn't feel it with Gwyneth Paltrow's Ralph & Russo gown.
She had it changed from it's original design at Ralph & Russo's Spring 2015 runway.
Remember when Nicole Kidman used to be the Queen of the Red Carpet?
She could do no wrong. Well lately...she never has on the best dress.
This was one of the worst. It looks cheap, reptilian.
I think Marion Cotillard is a wonderful actress and the perfect face
of Dior. I wanted to love this dress...but I just didn't...couldn't.
I didn't like her hair either. She normally is very lovely. This just wasn't her night.
I wanted to love Lady GaGa's dress but I just didn't.
It was just too big...too much dress and too much in the gloves too.
Anna Wintour and someone....How is it that Anna Wintour is the know all
of fashion? She looks terrible here. That dress is bland and the thing on her shoulders
looks like something a girl would have worn to her prom in 1957.
I thought this dress too old looking for Margot RobbieIt's a pretty dress for an older actress.
I think Sally Field wore one like this last year and rocked it.
I guess Margot gets points for not being too sexy.
This is Chrissy Telgen. I'm not sure who she is exactly. I've seen her before and
she is John Legend's girlfriend. But this dress is awful. It takes
the leg slit to a new height. Just terrible.
Might have been a pretty dress if that slit were sewn up.
I love this red number on Rosamund Pike although I think it needed just a little red jewelry with it.
Usually, I think everyone wears too much jewelry that distracts from their dresses but in this case,
I think it needed some big ruby earrings.
Sienna Miller's dress was just about my favorite of the night.
Although I could not name one movie that I've ever seen her in.
I know I have seen her...but I just don't ever remember her.
Here I lightened the photo in photoshop so you could see the details.
I loved the velvet bows. It's really really pretty.
Meryl Streep looked her best ever! I adored this on her!
So elegant! So age appropriate. Love her!
I really have no idea who Joanna Newsom is...but I love this dress.
Best of the Night for me was Jennifer Lopez.
This is all perfection.
Perhaps her boobs are a little too out there...we kind of expect that from her, don't we?
Its just all so fabulous and it's the perfect color on her.
So that is my Oscar fashion rap up.
Sorry it's a little late.
Violet had another seizure.
I took her to the vet today and she is now
taking phenobarbitol to control them.
The seizure she had Monday night just about did me in.
I'm hoping this will be the answer.
The vet says we could spend $1,000 and do a MRI to find out what is going on in her head
but she would get the same treatment no matter what we find.
So I'm hoping this helps the situation and I have a few more years with her.
