The Lovely Jennifer Lopez...beautiful and radiant as always in Armani Prive.
Although Husband has always thought Penelope Cruz resembles a rat- like creature (dunno WHERE he gets that idea from), I think Ms. P is stunning in this heavily draped, bordeaux red, Donna Karan gown.
Sandra Bullock is wonderful in full length golden lace by Marchesa. Loved the hair and make-up (lipstick was actually red) and I think all the dresses looked better up on stage than on the red carpet (lighting makes a HUGE difference)
Ok, to be honest I really don't know who the hay Zoe Saldana is?! (Avatar) but her Givenchy purple ruffles were a perfect confection,,and great with her skin tone. Didn't care for the slit at the front of the dress though...
Ok, now it's time to get tough...while there were plenty of meh, ho-hum dresses (which is kinda disappointing and unfortunate), these ones really made me say WHY LADIES WHY????
These are most definitely the worst offenders... and some are serious repeat offenders.
Really SJP? really?... shiny-pale yellow and sack-like are not great ways to describe an Oscar gown....just sayin'
Mariah what decade are you living in exactly? Could there be any more wrong with this mess dress....the length, the cut, the broachy thing on her hip. And those SHOES?! They're so wrong for the "dress". Shoot your stylist now. NOW.
Or go directly to jail- you are a HUGE repeat offender.
Charlize, after I just finished a post about how wonderful you are, and you are... you go ahead and wear the rosette on the boob dress. Colour is great but that's it. Fail.
Diane Kruger, fantastic in Inglorious Basterds. I really like her acting and she's a true German beauty but this dress makes her look just plain bad. In fact the hair/dress/make-up is doing NOTHING for her....
Tina Fey proves that just because you're funny, cute and likable, it doesn't mean you know how to dress at all? One shoulder, leopard printed mess...and that poof hair. Not funny Tina, not funny at all...
Unfortunately I think there were more misses then hits.... there's always next year ladies.
