I’m embarrassed that I kind of dropped the ball on the Oscars a little bit. But, now that I have time I will share all of my opinions on everything!
Because I’m lazy I will not type up a list of the winners for you, but here is a link that will you to them: click!
Also, I read a review of the show which I almost completely agreed with, so I will share that with you as well: click!
Although The Hurt Locker won best picture, etc, I actually was rooting for Avatar. Who cares if the story line was unoriginal, it was beautiful and touching. I absolutely loved it, and thought it should’ve won, besides the fact that it did get a little too much pre-Oscar hype.
I thought that Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin were very funny–the two of them together was far better than most hosts by themselves. Although Neil Patrick Harris’ little skit at the beginning was a little odd, I’ll forgive it. It was cute and peppy.
Now, no use reminiscing about the movies themselves, since those are done and gone with–who’s won has won, and who’s lost has lost, but fashion, this is an important topic!
Kate Winslet — This dress is stunning on her. Her hair is perfect, the dress is the perfect mix of modernity and classic, and the fit is outstanding. The only critique I have is that her necklace is a little low for the dress, but we’ll forgive you Kate.
Penelope Cruz –there really is nothing to say. Has she ever worn anything that has been less than extravagant?
Rachel McAddams — this dress’ watercolor feel is what pushes it from pretty to beautiful. Although some might get lost in the shapelessness of the bottom, the fit of the top allows her to keep her figure, while still seeming as free flowing as the dress is. Gorgeous!
Carey Mulligan — her new hair is fun and cute, and so is this dress! It’s the perfect mix of young and sophisticated. I love the gems in the front, and the opening to let her shoes shine through is perfect. One should always accentuate their shoes.
Zoe Saldana — I’m not really sure where to start. Should we begin with the too many sparkles on the top and work our way down, or begin with the too many levels of atrocious fabric in strange shades of purple and work back up to the top? This dress is completely wrong. The material at the bottom is hideous, and the shoes don’t do her any good.
Sarah Jessica Parker — I don’t really like Jessica Parker, although I am a huge Sex in the City fan, but I do admire her fashion experiments. This one though blew up in her face instead of soothing down to a nice consistency. The yellow doesn’t match her skin tone, and the decorations on the dress are too heavy for frame, they end up hanging down instead of staying still. The fit is all wrong–this was one fashion don’t. I don’t think Ms. Carrie Bradshaw would’ve approved!
Charlize Theron — I love Theron, I think she’s gorgeous and that she’s a great actress, but Ms. Theron, what is with the boob mitts? It’s atrociously distracting! While I feel as though I should be looking at your face, my eyes are being pulled down, away from what I should be looking at! I’m sorry but you’re supposed to put the padding on the inside of your dress.
Diane Kruger — I have never seen Ms. Kruger in an outfit I would’ve worn. I don’t know why, but she has the worst fashion taste of any actress I’ve ever seen. There simply is no way to put it (did we all see her at the Golden Globes? case in point). This dress is awkward, hangs wrong, and simply doesn’t do anything for her. It makes Tarantino look good –and we all know his fashion sense is like his directing –playful, and yet still frightening.
Well, I hope you enjoyed the transformation from a film blog into a fashion blog for a day! Let me know what you thought of Oscar fashion. Also, if anyone has any ideas for a post they’d like, let me know and I’d be happy to oblige!
