Oscar’s New Clothes

I never watch the Oscars because in general, I’m not a fan of Hollywood.  I do however, love looking at the Oscar fashions après-spectacle.  I could care less about what “the guys” are wearing.  I want to see the girls’ fashion sense or lack thereof.

Here are my nominees for BEST DRESSED:

  • Blessed with head to toe fashion sense, Cameron Diaz looked spectacular in her sparkling gold Oscar de la Renta.
  • Demi Moore’s Atelier Versace was a classy compliment to her skin tone. Beautifully designed and not overdone she radiated elegance on the red carpet.
  • Kate Winslet was sleek and classic in silver Yves St. Laurent.
  • Helen Mirren in Badgley Mischka was understated yet sparkling.
  • Sandra Bullock’s Marchesa was indeed a beautiful gown but I found it a tad old for her.

And the WORST DRESSED awards go to:

  • I don’t know what Givenchy was thinking with this design.  The bottom ruffles look like she tore them off a purple ostrich’s ass.  She in no way looks like a flower.
  • Charlize Theron’s boob plates were a distracting look-at-me faux-pas. Coupled with the same color train it gave a new meaning to “tits and ass”.
  • Diane Kruger’s Chanel was a nightmare to say the least.  Coffin-like material on the top and bottom that’s cut off in the middle by wads of arranged toilet paper.
  • Another Chanel semi-nightmare was Sarah Jessica Parker.  The gown could have been pretty per se but the fit made Sarah Jessica’s gorgeous body look misshapen in all the wrong places.
  • Vera Farmiga wore a bright ruffly Marchesa.  Can you say, “What was she thinking?” or perhaps we’d all like to know what her stylist was thinking.
  • I just couldn’t get into Virginia Madsen’s Kevan Hall – it was definitely black and blue all over.

Honorable mention:

  • Queen Latifah
  • Penelope Cruz in Donna Karan
  • Amanda Seyfried – maybe in a different color
  • Tina Fey (finally)
  • Sigourney Weaver

So although I’m not star-struck for those on the red carpet, I am totally intrigued (or not) by their sense of style or complete void of good sense.
