I have four confessions to make;
1) I didn’t watch a single movie from the 2007 Oscar-nominated bunch, and for the most part, I hadn’t heard of 90% of them either.
2) I have never ever watched the Oscars in my life, yesterday’s show included.
3) I never check out the winners because frankly, I couldn’t care less.
4) I always check pictures of the red carpet outfits after Oscar night.
The Fire-Your-Stylist Group:
Keisha Whit-something, whoever she is.What the hell was she thinking? The color of the dress might have looked lovely, if it was a shade less yellow, and the cut of the dress might have looked great, but what’s with the flowery action at the back? It looks like someone stole them from the top of a cake decorated with yellowing icing and Jabri’s trademark cardboard pink-and-green flowers.
Kirsten, Kirsten. I bet she skipped the stylist and was dressed by her grandmother, or perhaps Cher. Just check the feathery actions.
At first, I noticed her expression (doesn’t she look REALLY angry?), then I noticed her hairstyle with the front sticking to her head and the back poofed up, making it look like she got it done 5 days ago and tried her best to “freshen it up” for the night without bothering to wash it (check the greasy-looking lock dangling down one shoulder).
Then I saw the dress.
The Mummy Returns, anyone? Eva Green just rolled out of her mausoleum.
I have no idea who this is, but man, doesn’t anyone ever tell these people to toss their money on a dress that actually fits? I am not enjoying looking at the rolls of fat on her stomach.
The You-Could-Have-So-Done-Better Group:
Although most of the world seems to hate her, I have always really liked Kidman, I guess maybe because I really love “Moulin Rouge”. I also really love red, but I’m not so sure about this dress. It does look good on her, but I can’t help but feel like it’s a cross between a lobster (check out the collar), and a Superman cape.
I hate Reese’s dress, although it is not hideous enough to be put into the Fire-Your-Stylist Group. The whole frilly Mermaid look is so a few years ago. I also hate how its a lighter shade at the bottom, it looks like she had to walk through a warsheh of powder cement to get to the red carpet.
I had to Google whether Kate Winslet was pregnant or not after I saw her in this dress. She is not. Enough said.
Another dress that I really hate but that is not ugly enough to be placed in the first category. It looks like the string art that my 7th grade Egyptian art teacher made us do. I also hate the color, it’s so drab. Is she still with Chris Martin?
The Wow-You-Look-Good-Tonight Group:
I think Cameron Diaz looked the best last night. I love the simplicity of the dress, I love the color, I love her hairdo, and I love the accessories she chose to go with the dress. Everything looks so good and so in place, proving the age-old motif less is more.
Jennifer Lopez looked good too. I am personally not much a fan of these Greek-Goddess style dresses, but it does look pretty great on her. I love the antique jeweled top of her dress too, it’s absolutely stunning.
Penelope Cruize looks as good as she always does. I always feel like she dresses brilliantly. This dress reminds me of Nicole Kidman’s dress in the Chanel ad. Purty.
So, what’s your take?
