Oh! What a night!
Almost everyone was beautiful last night. Really.
I am going to show you the dresses that stood out to me.
I am not going to show the worst dressed because I think everyone who watched knows who it was...and I just don't want to pick on her.
So here we go....
This is Adele on the red carpet. Once again I love her style.
Here she is singing Skyfall.
She even won an Oscar for best song.
Good for her.
Love this look too.
BTW. She is 5'9".... nearly six foot tall with her shoes on....
She has a great advantage wearing clothes being that height.
This is very pretty.
Octavia Spencer. This pale color really looks nice on her...
It just dark enough.
She reminds me of cotton candy in this dress :o)
Amy Adams wore my favorite Oscar de la Renta. It is my favorite style, isn't it?
I liked this very much but felt it was washed out and would have preferred a darker color.
I love this silhouette.
Congratulations Anne for winning best actress.
Again...the color is so barely pink...you almost can't tell it is pink.
I was not a big fan...but I want to show you anyway.
This is Jennifer Lawrence. Her dress is Dior.
It is a great dress. Again I think it had some pink in there.
This dress however made Jennifer trip and fall on the steps as she went up to get her award.
She recovered well and well she should have as she is Hollywoods darling for some strange reason and she beat out fantastic actresses for playing a dopey easy role.
I'm still bitter.
Oh my goodness. Reese Witherspoon, you look wonderful.
Her hair. The color. The fit and shape.
Really really great!
(wearing all Louis Vuitton)
This is Kerry Washington.
Kerry wore this gorgeous color with such an interesting bodice.
Her dress is by Miu Miu.
This dress grew on me and made my list when I saw it on stage.
Yeah. My dress would be a moomoo too.
This is for those of you who just love the dresses with a little, ahem, cleavage.
It's Samantha Barks from Les Miserables.
I like it just fine.
It got my attention :op
Here is Natalie Portman in the exact opposite dress as Samantha.
She wore this to the after party. I happen to love this. A lot.
I'm all for a big baggy dress on a tiny wisp of a girl.
Stacey Kiebler-never-ate-a-cookie looks fantastic.
Halle Berry had a black dress with embellishments a little like this...and I hated that one....
But this dress is gorge on her.
Sally Field is really lovely to look at. She is doing something right...or she just really lucked out in the genes department. Man. How old is she?
Speaking of older ladies. Barbra Streisand looked amazing last night singing Memories for the dearly departed ....especially Marvin Hamlish. It was very big of her to get up there...she is a nervous Nelly and you know this is not her favorite thing to do. But she did it beautifully. Sue loved Barbra so much and it made me cry.
And the winners are.....
This woman is born to wear gorgeous clothes. (Charlize Theron)
Wow. She looked amazing.
There were crystals on the peplum. It was divine.
And then! She came out and danced with....who was her partner?? ummmm....
She had on a chiffon dress when she dance and that was so pretty too.
haha. I just looked it up. It was Chantam Tatum.
I kinda wish she had danced with John Travolta. Cause even tho he is weird and has issues,
I think he is nice and nobody in this generation dances like Johh Travolta.
Why am I not in charge of everything???
And there she is....lovely and down to earth, everybody loves....
I LOVED this Gucci dress because the back was fabulous and the color was really right on.
She was gorgeous and she stood out. She even looked comfortable.
And THEN her darling husband won BEST MOVIE with ARGO.....
and he said the weirdest, most awkward thing to her...about working on the marriage...and it came out all wrong and embarrassing.
Oh my. Ben was so flustered and babbling....but...his biggest moment was not so great in the wife department.
So that's the quick run down. I've gotta run....a few things to do today instead of sitting here reading comments all day. Darn.
Please feel free to share what you loved about the clothes and show....
and what you did not love so much.
I have plenty of opinions...I spent the night on Facebook blabbing away....
you should have been there. ha
Now it's your turn!
What do you think?
