Oscars: Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad
The last thing we want to do is sound stuffy, but isn’t this just a bit much for the Oscars?
Sure, it’s Diva-Spectacular and showing off the body is and always has been her thing. And we’re definitely not making an age-appropriate point here. She looks spectacular in the dress, no doubt about that, but this is a look better suited for the Grammys. Which isn’t to say that the Grammys are a lesser awards show somehow; just that this kind of “SHOW BUSINESS!!!!!” look is a bridge too far for the Oscars, which are generally seen as having a stricter dress code. It’s the one Hollywood event where you’ll see the most haute couture on the red carpet. Haute couture’s not required, but if you’re walking alongside it, maybe you should put your nipples away for the evening and tone down on the drag queen makeup.
Otherwise, a hell of a head-turning look. Just not the time and place for it.
