I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised at how many great dresses were working the red carpet at last night’s Oscars. And there really wasn’t anyone that looked really bad, just so-so fashion that was not really Oscars worthy. So lets start with the best dressed. It’s really hard to only pick one this year so let’s just say that Jessica Chastain, Giuliana Rancic, Kristen Wiig, Maria Menounos, Michelle Williams, Emma Stone, Berenice Bejo, Ellie Kemper, Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Octavia Spencer, Milla Jovovich, Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz and Sandra Bullock all look fantastic!
So here are my in betweens… Gwyneth Paltrow took quite a risk with Tom Ford column gown with the matching cape. Women have been trying to introduce the cape to the red carpet for years and finally someone has done it successfully. So kudos to Paltrow but not really my style. Now Jennifer Lopez may have been on everyone elses top dressed but I really didn’t think she looked that great, especially not when her areola was popping out of her dress.
Stacy Keibler looked gorgeous even though I’m not crazy about the dress, cause you know Keibler would look killer in anything. Meryl Streep looked very appropriate as the female version of the golden statue. Viola Davis looked just OK, the color was great but the hair was boring and the bottom of the dress looked like it was ripped, even though I’m pretty sure it was designed that way.
Glenn Close looked fab for her age, I love that dark green. Penelope Cruz looked good but commmoon… been there done that! that look is so over done. Tina Fey was working exclusively with Carolina Herrera [as in she was the only one allowed in her dress] and I have to say I wasn’t impressed. The worst dressed lady of the ball was definitely last year’s best actress winner, Natalie Portman. I mean polka dots? really? Runner up for worst was Busy Philips, who has yet to make it on the acceptable dressed list and Kelly Osbourne needs to dye her already, purple grey is not cute anymore.
