Oscars 2009 – Part 4
Stay with us, bitches! We’ve got a lot of ripping ahead of us, so get your coffee and settle in.
We can understand why she made the alterations, but it was a more interesting dress before them. Still, she looks beautiful, and every inch the Academy Award-winning actress.
She really broke out the va-va-voom on this one. She looks beautiful but she’s so done up she kinda doesn’t even look like herself. Like she’s a drag queen doing an Alicia Keyes tribute named Felicia Sleaze or something.
Oh please. People who get PAID to comment on red carpet (what a concept) have been falling all over themselves praising this dress. “She’s BACK!” Whatevs. She never went away. She just went home and put on another boring dress.
This is a stunning dress and it fits her like a glove, but the color is just too washed out on her. Any color at all would have been a big improvement.
We go back and forth on this one. First off, the color is beautiful on her. Second, she gets points for doing something different. Third, we suspect this was a bit of a nod to her heritage, as it does have a sari quality to it. Those are all points in the look’s favor. What doesn’t work for us is that it’s kind of a mature dress, no? We could see Helen Mirren in this.
What’s the point in critiquing this bitch’s clothes? She could come out in a paper bag and still look stunning. Still, it’s a very pretty dress.
What a disappointment. Clearly, she was browsing the “serious actress” rack. It’s always interesting (and a little horrifying) watching an actress with great talent transform herself into something slightly more than human in order to snag that prize. She looks less like a person and more like an institution at this point. Polished and coiffed and tucked and burnished to a lovely shine, everything that made Kate Winslet interesting is subsumed and we’re left with this statuesque perfection instead of the quirky, talented, pretty young woman who got the nomination.
Anyway, the dress is striking, but a little dreary. We don’t like the lace panel, the color, or the titscrepancy. And we would have loved to see what her hair looked like the next morning after she slept on that helmet.
