Well, you’re gonna have to read all the way down to the bottom.
All together, the show was a surprise to me (read, I had completely forgotten about awards, movies or celebrities for a few weeks there), I was pleasantly surprised that a) I could get my antennae to catch a signal and b) the kids watched with me and didn’t ruin the whole thing, despite them asking who was Oscar and what had he won. They loved Ricky Gervais and thought all his testicle jokes were hilarious. Pia and Luca giggled uncontrollably at all the VERY revealing necklines (dude, that’s a thing that you can’t pull off in real life. Even Bruno enjoyed himself.
(Lady Gaga, maybe the new Liza Minelli? Maybe? Also, I want to watch Mozart in The Jungle.)
In no particular order…
Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton
(I don’t know who this person is, but I like the white, the pleats and the ruffle neck and shoulders)
Guys, this dress is kinda awesome. The drape and the reflective sequins work really well together and kinda screams FUCK YOU AND YOUR BEAUTY STANDARDS, which I love. So Yay for Melissa. I LOATHE the slit on the front however. There was no need for that.
Guys, honestly. That sheer detail? That killer hair? The amazing shoulders? The basic cool factor of owning the grey? This woman is untouchable. This dress is killer.
Kristen Dunst in Valentino
Maybe this is a fancy pinney… but I love it. I love velvet and I love the shape of those shoulders. Velvet… mmmmmm… it reminds me of Axl Rose and the early 90s. I had a purple velvet jumper, something I had stolen from my mother’s wardrobe that I wore for most of 1991.
America Ferrera in Jenny Packham
Love me some mustard… and the collar neck. I love a good and interesting neckline. And pleats- sucker for pleats. Maybe I would have prefered a velvet ribbon (read the Kirsten Dunst photo)
Annabelle is rolling her eyes, as she sees this. BUT I LOVE JULIANNE MOORE! She usually defaults for jewel tones, but if I had that colored, dude, I would do the same. I love the deep indigo, the neckline (a bit too futuristic, but I’ll take it) and the length.
EEEEEEEEK! So this may not be something that you’d want to wear to a cocktail party, but dude, if you’re going to push the boundaries, this is how. Fringe, Rose Quartz (our color of the year), that Art Nouveau detailing? Aaaaaaahhh, it’s so pretty.
Kate Hudson in Michael Kors
Hell yes. Pretty Sure she stole this from her mom, but I love that it’s such a Kate Hudson dress- makes sense that she flaunts her core what with her fitness line..
Finally! A print! MORE PRINTS ON DRESSES PLEASE! And I love the drape and the asymmetry.
Maura Tierney: Glasses and draped bust for the win!
And so, was there a bet dressed? What do you think? I think Helen Mirren takes the prize for Sunday, but I haven’t seen the party photos.. so I might change my mind.
