Since every fashion blogger worth his/her lust for fashion must do a post on Oscars on the bloody day itself, I hereby share with you looks that I totally love, like and utterly dislike (not hate, my mother thinks it’s too harsh a word but I am not using it only ‘cuz dislike rhymes better with like! Captain obvious – yes I am).
Love: Lots of fabulously dresses couples and ladies. Here’s a toast to you!
Colin Firth in recycled Tom Ford, with Livia Giuggioli in eco Valentino. He looked dapper and she looked graceful. That little vintage feel to that pretty red gown just made it extra special.
Rooney Mara in Givenchy Couture. Super gorgeous, fun and elegant. Oh love her alien ears :P
George Clooney in Giorgio Armani and girlfriend Stacy Keibler in gold Marchesa. S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G!!
Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford. Whoever is questioning whether she worked it or not, go jump off a cliff or something 'cuz she worked it fabulously!
Milla Jovovich in Elie Saab. Very red carpet. Very Elie Saab.
Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen. Just look at that dress, it's gold!! I just wish she had done a little Hawaii detour for a quick tan. Having said that, she owns this dress even with her porcelain skin .
Rose Byrne shined oh-so-brightly in a shimmering Vivienne Westwood dress. STAR!
Gary Oldman wearing Paul Smith with his wife Alexandra Edenborough. I can't seem to find out who's she wearing but I am loving the ease and grace with which she's wearing that dress that I am not particularly in love with.
Sacha Baron Cohen "apparently in John Galliano" Apparently I love it!
Likes: These are the looks that I thought were lovely, simple and absolutely worth a mention.
Berenice Bejo in painstakingly crafted Elie Saab gown looked pretty but I felt the colour of the gown was too mellow for her skintone and copper-toned hair.
Shailene Woodley looks lovely in Valentino but is also trying very hard to say "I am no Miley Cyrus." A girl's got to have some fun!
It's vintage. It's Dior. It's got polka dots. It's Red. It's pretty. I like it. But still, I am not in love with this dress on Natalie Portman. Am I the only one?
Viola Davis in Vera Wang. It screams Vera Wang now available in Green! It's just a choked breath away from being in the third category.
Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton. Cute. Period.
Brad Pitt in Tom Ford and Angelina Jolie in Versace. It's the velvet, yeah it's only the velevt that saves it from being another black red carpet staple. Agree?
Meryl Streep in eco Lanvin. If anyone else had worn that dress, she would have been in the third category. Right there with Glenn Close.
Dislikes: It’s strange that some of my favourite ladies are in desperate need of a new stylist. Fire that bum!
Glenn Close stole my mother's curtains and gave them to Zac Posen. This is what he made. Sick!
Kristen Wiig. I love you so so much and you go ahead and wear nude from head to the bloody toe?? BIG BLAH!
Judy Greer in Monique Lhullier. She really looks like she's on a lab table about to be slit open. Really, what with those lines, they look like pre-operation markings.
Maya Rudolph in Johanna Johnson. 2nd Bridesmaids cast in this category. Trust me, Debenhams stocks better stuff!
Ellie Kemper in Armani Prive. Awww did they leave you with all that junk in the basement for too long? Poor rusted you!
Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad. Sheer? Really? Why?
What do you think of my picks, do you agree or disagree? I would love to hear… leave a comment or just tweet!
