Oscars Red Carpet!

Ah the Academy Awards. The grand daddy of awards shows.
Not gonna lie folks, I was a little disappointed.... no, not in the terrible hosts or lackluster broadcast, but in the fashion. Everyone did SO GOOD. It is so much more fun when the celebrities bomb. Alas, we do have a new category: Honorable Mention. Not everyone can be a best, but so many people looked REALLY good that I decided to add in this category for the Oscars.

I will begin with the Honorable Mentions:
Amy Adams - your hair is amazing, make-up was flawless, dress - smoking hot. Why did you ruin the whole thing with that stupid necklace?

Anne Hathaway- you actually looked great in all 8 dresses you wore, but I was embarrassed for you and your hosting skills.

Halle Barry - you may be one of the most gorgeous women on the planet. You look amazing, I just feel like your dress is a little confused...

Natalie Portman - for some reason I have this huge dislike of her, but she's preggo and adorbs in this dress. (at least there isn't a giant red rose on the front of it) 

 Alright, now here is a looooooooooooooooong list of Bests:

Reese Witherspoon. Hands down- Best Hair of the night. And you can't go wrong with classic black and white!  (I did wear this dress to my freshman homecoming though... well a much-less expensive version of it :))

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardiem, Ok- the dress doesn't wow me, but they get my Cutest Couple award for the night. I also would like to point out that she gave birth a mere 4 weeks ago. Wowza. 

Sandra Bullock. Classic Hollywood Glamour.

Jennifer Lawrence. Best Dressed Newbie. She is smokin' hot in this dress!

Jennifer Hudson. Love the color, Love the dress, not so much the hair, but she rocked it.

Gwyneth Paltrow - she can do no wrong for me these days. I think people will be split love or hate on this dress. I, for one, LOVE. 

Hailey Steinfeld. Now, I am really disappointed in this picture. It is not doing this dress justice at all. She looked so cute, so glam, and so age-appropriate for a 14 year old. I loved it!

Helen Miren. This woman is a Grande Dame of Hollywood. So elegant.

Mandy Moore. This is another really terrible picture. This dress took my breath away when I watched the red carpet. Here it looks pretty dull. Go youtube a video of her on the carpet. It looked so great on TV!

Hilary Swank. Just love it. 

And, drum roll please........
ScarJo- No no.

Mila Kunis- now this doesn't look THAT bad here, but I was so concerned that there was going to be a wardrobe malfunction! Her girls are held in by little details of lace. LACE people!! She was jiggling around all over the place.

Now, I was going to leave Helena Bonham Carter off of my list of worst, because she does it on purpose. Then I found of picture of her doing this:


Cate Blanchett. Now, she looks stunning. I just wish the top half of the dress was not stiff and un-moveable. The circle it forms around her torso confuses me. I love it from the waist down, but can't support the top half.

Melissa Leo- probably the most interesting acceptance speech at the Oscars. First person to ever drop the F-bomb on stage... even Christian Bale poked fun at her for it. But this dress.... maybe I just dislike architectural dresses, but the lace and the mirror-ish material underneath were just not cute. There are so many other beautiful dresses out there she could have worn.
Nicole Kidman. EPIC FAIL. Hugely disappointed. What was she thinking????

Nicole Kidman and Cate Blanchett....both of their dresses just struck me as so odd!

I mostly agree with you. I feel the need to comment on almost all of them. We'll see how far I get... :-)
LOVE Amy Adams. She was classy - I mostly always love her, anyway. Anne Hathaway looked stunning. Agree with you about Halle.
I also have an unexplained dislike for Natalie Portman. But she was cute. And looked good for being preggo.
I LOVE Reese Witherspoon. I think the earrings really made the whole outfit though.
Agree with cutest couple.
Sandra Bullock will always equal Hollywood glamour in my book. She is one of my favorite all-time actresses.
I have to disagree with your choice of Jennifer Lawrence. I'm sorry. That dress looks like something you would play tennis in. Not attractive. My roommates and I have have dubbed it "the tennis dress."
I wasn't a huge fan of Gwyneth Paltrow's dress either, but you said probably not everyone would like that.
I was SO HAPPY to see Hailey Steinfeld look so cute, and glamorous and YOUNG. I think she'll go far in Hollywood if she wants to. She's got a good head on her shoulders.
I agree with everything else. I just have to say - what was Mila Kunis thinking?!? It looked like she had lace tatoos on her breasts, and that there really was nothing holding up her dress. That's not attractive at all.
I too was confused by Cate Blanchett's top half.
Even Nicole Kidman can't pull off a dress that accentuates the hips. C'mon. It could have been a nice one, too. If only!

That's all I've got. I feel like there would have been some good back-and-forth banter between us if we had been together. :-)

Agree with you on Amy Adam's necklace... WHY? Love that red gown on Anne Hathway. I have a thing for bustle-type dresses!

Oh my gosh that pic of Helena Bonham Carter... yikes. I didn't see that when I watched the Oscars but yeah, she is just trying to end up on worst dressed!!
