(As I’ve said before) I just want to state up front I’m not qualified to be doing this. I’m currently wearing pajamas by Sussan. But they get to be movie stars and I don’t so I’m judging them.
Winner! I don’t know why she’s there. But I love this dress. She looks like vanilla icing and I mean that in a good way.
So Emma Stone is wearing this. I’m not a fan of the neck bow but I quite love the rest of it – the deep red, the flowy hemline, the defined waistline. But apparently this is a fashion fail, according to Perez Hilton, and the two journos live blogging the Oscars at www.news.com.au who had this to say: “Emma Stone turns up in Nicole Kidman’s Oscar dress from 2007.. what a faux pas!”
Is it though? Is it currently 2007 at the Oscars? Is Nicole Kidman there, running around in this same dress? I went to a wedding a few weeks ago. I had two dresses to choose from. I was so relieved when I got there to see the exact dress I’d left on the hanger at home was being worn by another person. That for me would be a faux pas. Not wearing a similar dress five years apart…this is where the fashion people lose me. And anyway – aside from the Bridesmaids girls and Chris Rock, Emma Stone (and co-presenter Ben Stiller) was the only funny presenter at the Oscars. So she gets her neck bow points back for that.
Apparently they only let you into the Oscars if you were wearing red. Anyway, Michelle Williams is rockin’ a peplum like only girls with no hips can in this dress. It’s girly and elegant and I quite love it. Better than what she wore to the Screen Actors Guild awards:
The hemline and the ankle straps on the shoes make me angry.
You’re wearing polka dots Natalie Portman? Why? Why?
Don’t you hate it when you read a story about, oh say, Miranda Kerr and she’s all “I love my curves!” I have news for you Miranda. These are curves. And this is how you dress for them. I love this, it’s a flattering dress and she looks great.
Obvious joke but I’m doing it anyway. Meryl Streep came dressed as an Oscar!
George loves a racing stripe on his tux. Is this the same one he wore to the Golden Globes?
Is it? Is that a fashion faux pas then? Or does that only count for chicks? Anyway, big fan of George. He can wear this every day, I wouldn’t mind.
So Rose Byrne showed up wearing Anna Faris’s dress from 2007 – what a faux pas! Except, oh wait, no they’re both there in 2012. And it looks like they went to the hairdresser together too. They’re both beautiful women, but I’m picking Anna for the win. The silhouette and line of her dress is much more flattering. Poor Rose just looks like she’s in a shiny tube.
Slater is at the Oscars! He hasn’t aged a bit. His tux fits perfectly.
Hey guys, I think Angelina Jolie’s dress has a thigh high split. I can’t be sure though…it’s hard to tell.
You have a thigh high split in your dress Angelina. We get it. You can stand normally now.
When presenting the award for best costume design Jennifer Lopez said “your dresses should be tight enough to show you’re a woman and loose enough to show you’re a lady”. J.Lo may have wanted to take Edith Head’s advice, because it’s rumoured she had a little wardrobe malfunction. Anyway – its very J.Lo – tight, sexy, etc. And kind of like a venetian blind.
And finally, Gwyneth wore a cape.
And I don’t hate it.
