Chris Rock came out and did a great monologue focusing on this point entirely. Which is how it should be...but what happened I'm afraid is the people who were nominated were intimidated to go all out and celebrate their achievements. Maybe they didn't want to 'show off'...or maybe the clothes were trivial. I don't know. My pretty little head can't quite figure it out.
By the end of the red carpet I had three dresses. Three dresses that were very pretty.
I had to go looking for other stars who were missing on the red carpet show.
I found two more.
So this morning I wanted to see what everyone wore to the after parties...so I could share a few more dresses.
This year I will include those :o)
Let's start off with the very pretty dresses;
Alicia Vikander from The Danish Girl wearing Louis Vuitton.
I loved it until I saw the poof/highlow bottom. That's so yesterday, isn't it?
But she looks beautiful and not boring, so yay! She won best supporting actress.
Brie Larson in Gucci. She won best actress for Room.
My favorite part is the chiffon added around the top part. That one touch made this prettier.
I love her great big smile.
Charlize Theron in Dior. She looks amazing. However I don't like the shoulder straps one bit. But that color and her figure and her jewels are spectacular.
Jennifer Lawrence did not walk the red carpet so I have seen this only in pictures. It is a Dior and I like it very much. Looks a little like a negligee, but....it's not boring. Her hair and make up are beautiful.
BTW. I heard that reporters were not suppose to ask 'who are you wearing'....which bummed me out.
Dang they are taking themselves too seriously.
It's entertainment folks.
I love Saoirse (sur-shu) Ronan. She was in Brooklyn. She was my favorite actress of the year and in my favorite movie of the year. Rent Brooklyn. You will not be disappointed. This dress is very nice but not my favorite. The best thing about it is that she picked the green for her home, Ireland.
Kelly Ripa looks absolutely beautiful. I love it. I love the fit, I love the hair and makeup, I love the tan. Go Kelly.
No one showed these two arriving...but I think this woman outdid the celebrities. I love her dress and her necklace and her figure. Who are you? You are on the top of my list!!
Michael Keaton. You look marvelous!
Now for the after party looks.
Minnie Driver in a beautiful Naeem Khan dress.
I just love this.
Rachel McAdams (the notebook, spotlight) looked tons better in this pink dress than she did in her green dress for the show. I really like this pretty pink dress.
This is Beyonce's sister. I only know her from being a nut in an elevator. However. She wins in the fashion department last night!!! Solange wore Naeem Khan.
I saw this picture on google search and was so excited because I thought I found my winner. This is Nina Dovrev wearing Reem Acra. BUT it's from last year and now that I think of it...I think I wrote about it. hahaha
I'm gonna say....
Brie and Minnie. The girls in blue.
Who did you love?
Why didn't I choose Jennifer Garner and Tina Fey?
There I said it before you could say it. :oP
Since I did not care about any of the movies (besides Brooklyn) and few of the actors this year....the show was painful for me to watch...so I went to bed before the final three awards. Had Sylvester Stalone won I may have gotten a little thrill and been able to make it...but he lost to a man I only know from Bridge of Spies...and it was super boring too. I am not a Leo fan. I don't hate. But I'm not a fan. Never even saw.....Titanic. (I was traumatized by watching A Night To Remember too many times as a child.)
I am baffled by the fact that professionals in the entertainment industry can put on such a terrible and boring show.
Next Sunday we will all watch Downton Abbey and be entertained and delighted and cry and all will be well. Leave it to England.
Leave your many opinions in the comments!!
