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.
- 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.
