before i get to my take on the the fashions of the Oscars there are a couple of things about this night that stood out to me. first, the hosts, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin, were actually pretty entertaining. Did anyone watch the Barbara Walters Oscar special? Get past the fact that Barbara is possibly the most awkward person ever, and lets talk about the Mo'Nique interview. She's strange. Any woman that hasn't shaved their legs in 40 years, and has an "open relationship" with their husband, is strange and wont be on the Christmas card list. She DID, however, win and award. Good for her. A big accomplishment tonight, a woman won best director for the first time ever. I can't believe that! W2G Kathryn Bigelow. Girl power! Lastly, I am so happy Sandra Bullock won best actress. She totally deserved it! If you havn't seen The Blind Side, you're missing out. If she didn't win, I was pulling for Gabourey Sidibe.
alright on to the fashion... lets start with the best.
Sandra Bullock looked stunning in this gown. I loved all the sparklyness but the lace at the top balanced it out and added a very feminine touch. Good job Sandy!
I really liked Rachel McAdams dress tonight. Nothing too over the top, but it looked great on her. I like the flowy and tie-dyed kinda look.
This is not a good pic of the dress, but I think Elizabeth Banks had the best use of ruffles tonight. There were lots of them on the red carpet, but I enjoyed the mermaid style and the color.
Salma Hayek is always beautiful. But, I really liked her red number tonight. Although, i do have to say it was a little fallish, but i'll still give it up to Salma for looking classy.
and for the Best Dressed of the night. drum roll please... Cameron Diaz! Loved this little sparkly number. She always looks adorable in anything she wears. Good job to Rachel Zoe, her stylist, for finding yet another great gown for Miss Size Zero.
and now the unfortunate task of deciding the worst dressed of the night...
oh SJP. i know your "niche" is being different and wearing things us normal people wouldn't dream of putting on. but this is not working. not to mention your hair. did you oversleep and not have time to get your hair did? Fail.
holy ruffles! Vera Farmiga is not rockin' it tonight. this is like a mix of 80's prom and my 9th grade cotillion dress. i do, however, like the color. but, the ruffles look like they're about to eat her. watch out!
there are no words. what happened, zoe saldana? did you fall in a pool of ink? those ruffle-like thingys at the bottom look like a spanish meringue dancers outfit. the only thing good about this is the waist up.
aaaaaaaaand worst dressed is... Charlize Theron. this is a beautiful lady, and i typically like what she wears, but this is all wrong. i like the color, but what are those rose-like applique things accentuating her breasts? like, hello here are my boobs. don't get me started on that train. double fail.
another Oscar night in the books. i'd like to thank the Academy for taking 3 1/2 hours of my life that i will never get back. goodnight.
