>You know, the Oscar fashion watch used to be more fun when the stars didn’t have stylists.
Cher in a headdress.
Bjork as a bird.
Sharon Stone in a Gap t-shirt.
Kim Basinger in a one-armed graffiti dress.
Nowadays, they’re all so safe, and the only mistakes they make is when they have a bad stylist, and they trust that person. So, let’s dish dresses, starting with my favorites:
|Jennifer Hudson looks fabulous.
She was my favorite on the carpet last night.
I mean, c’mon, girl wore tanger-effin’-rine and rocked it.
|Helen Mirren shows all them young upstarts what hot looks like.
Never less than glamorous, never less than fabulous.
On screen and off.
|Helen Bonham Carter, or, as I call her, HBC.
She isn’t a slave to fashion; in fact, she wore a dress
designed by a costume designer because,
well, it’s the Oscars, and it’s movies, not fashion.
She does what she wants and does it better than anyone.
She is so New Hollywood that she looks Old Hollywood.
A little Audrey Hepburn, a little Mia Farrow, a whole lot of simply gorgeous.
|Natalie Portman, looking beautiful, fresh, glowing,
and about nine-and-a-half months pregnant.
Regal, like an Oscar winner.
A cross between Oscar Barbie, and Sharon Tate Valley Of The Dolls.
Simple and chic, and beautiful.
This dress says, “Jesse James? Big mistake! Huuuge.”
A lot of people weren’t feeling the love for this dress,
but, well, it kinda grew on me. It looks like a piece of art, and Cate is priceless.
|Celine Dion. In the spirit of fairness,
I don’t like her, so, well, it’s hard to be objective.
But this shiny dress is too plain, and the fabric reminds me of……
|Halle Berry. After her Golden Globes misstep,
she went for princess gown, and it might have made it higher
on my very prestigious list if it weren’t for the fact that it looked like……
|…Hilary Swank’s dress.
Sure, the color was different, and one had tulle and one had feathers.
But they were both princess dresses for former Oscar winners,
and I think they should have tried harder.
|Scarlett Johansson looks like she’s up for the part of Miss Kitty
in a reboot of Gunsmoke.
It’s not bad, it’s just blah; and the hair is blah.
Blah blah blah.
|Florence Welch. Talk about drab, lifeless, blah.
This looks so much like the dress she wore to the Grammys,
that I thought it was the same dress.
How can a girl with such vibrant hair choose to wear skin tone Grandma drapes?
i put Anne in a class by herself because she is in a class by herself. Plus, she was the only one who got a chance to change dresses every couple of minutes. So, she is my Best Dressed, or best dresses–with a little Tux thrown in–of the night:
|Rockin’ the red carpet in Valentino Archive.|
|Glamorous in white.|
|Rumors are that anne will play Judy Garland on Broadway,
and this is all Judy.
|Like a fine wine, she’s fab.|
|Twist it, shake it.|
|Regal in Royal Blue.|
|And her last dress, at the end of the show.
This is another dress that reminds me of Garland.
