Oscars 2010 Part 1
It’s a beautiful dress and when we first saw it, we commented on the lovely color, but seeing the original, we wish she’d had the nerve to wear that bright orange instead of this taupe-y peach. Hair, makeup and accessories are all flawless.
Did not love. Actually, that’s not quite true. What we mean to say is, did not love for the Oscars. We applaud the idea of the print and the willingness to skip all the volume, but it just doesn’t feel like an Oscars dress. It’s more like something you’d wear to a very sophisticated pool-side party.
It’s a pretty color and it flatters her, but it felt like a very safe choice.
Gorgeous color. We’re going to get sick of all the twisted, origami bodices over voluminous skirts before this is all over, though.
We really loved this one. Again, we applaud the print because for some reason, prints seem to terrify actresses. What we love about this one is the subtlety of it and the fact that it matches her coloring perfectly. We go back and forth on the earrings. Too much? You make the call.
It’s a gorgeous dress that practically screams “I’m here to pick up my Oscar,” but it’s a little disappointingly safe. We were kind of hoping she’d wear another McQueen. And while she is obviously justifiably proud of her fantastic hair, we couldn’t help wondering how she would have looked with an updo. One thing’s for sure: that lip color was ALL WRONG.
It’s cute, which is about as much as we can expect from her. She just doesn’t do glamour well and she clearly has an aversion to wearing anything but black. Frankly, we think it would have looked a lot better without the titscrepancy. Either two straps or no straps, honey.
The other trend on the red carpet this year was color and thank god for that. This one really stood out. We think the ruffles could have been toned down quite a bit, though. To drag out a somewhat tired old phrase, the dress is wearing her.
