oscar fashion smashion

this year's oscars were pretty uneventful aside from the documentary short co-producer who pulled a kanye, the so you think you can dance music/dance number and a handful of heartfelt speeches and deserving wins (jeff good in crazy heart).

but let's be honest, the grooming and the gowns are half the reason we watch. so here are my picks. (sorry, no pans ... i'm not a hater ... i'll leave that to the twitterhaterati)

my best dressed...

cameron diaz in oscar de la renta & meryl streep in chris march

*cameron's always on my list. plus i love team zoe. i kind of want to wear this to my eventual wedding.
*is meryl a closet project runway fan? i love that she's been supporting the PR alum all awards season.

carey mulligan in prada & sandra bullock in marchesa

*carey's dress was age appropriate & the goth detailing full of personality. isn't her hair totally mia farrow in psycho?
*sandra's onto something - dress like an oscar, get an oscar?

vera farmiga in marchesa & jlo in armani prive

*va-va-volume. do you think when they designed the seats at the kodak theatre they took oscar dresses into consideration? 'cuz that could be 3.5 miserable hours...

kate bosworth & jessica simpson

*my favourite after party look belongs to kate bosworth & jessica looks so classy. suck it john mayer ;-)

victoria beckham & cameron diaz #2 - both in victoria beckham

*victoria beckham as fashion designer - who knew she could do more than overpriced denim? two bananas looks.

olivia wilde & kristen stewart in monique lhuillier

*olivia is after party perfection & i can't believe i like k-stew. so twihard of me...

rachel mcadams in elie saab & gabourey sidibe in marchesa

*i adore rachel's dreamy watercolour dress, but i'd prefer it on a magazine cover than on a red carpet. just saying... (ps. twitpic)
*gabourey is the s**t. she's so full of joy & sass. this dress is so flattering on her.

helen mirren in badgley mischka & miley cyrus in jenny packham

*helen has a drunken tattoo on her hand, which makes her amazing. also, i saw her in the west hollywood target a couple months ago buying an ironing board and wearing leisurewear and she still looked amazing.
*miley looks adorable & her hair/make-up are perfection. i love all the sequins this season. note to self: get out bedazzler. go to town.

demi moore in atelier versace & katy perry in zuhair marad

*i wasn't a huge fan on demi's dress on the red carpet, but it moved beautifully on stage. so romantic!
*katy looks like a little minx in this number. i really love it for some weird, twisted reason.

maggie gyllenhaal in dries van noten & sarah jessica parker in chanel

*i was on the fence about these looks, but i like risk takers, so props ladies.

ok, just one more...

zoe saldana in givenchy

*speaking of risk takers, you go girl. so beautiful from the back, but i must say it reminds me of the martha stewart crafts pom-poms and pulls focus from her gorgeous face. c'mon - i'm so right about the poms...

and now for the gents...

tom ford in tom ford & zac efron in calvin klein
*shh... don't speak, just look.

ryan reynolds in tom ford & robert downey jr

ps. my favourite joke of the night...
steve martin: "gabourey and i have something in common: in our first movies we were both born a poor black child."

Thank-you Heather! I think I've enjoyed your recap the most. However - Rachel McAdams could wear that dress to the grocery store and I'd say it was appropriate - pretty is pretty, just saying!

Johanna said...

Oh my god yes! Cameron Diaz and Demi Moore! I can just imagine Rachel and Brad freaking out with their Venti teas.
