Unless you live under a rock somewhere in Outer Mongolia, you are probably aware that the Oscars were on last night. I will come clean by saying I did not watch a single minute of the show. As I get crankier in my old age, I find I just really can't stomach the entertainers that suddenly think they have all the answers and that we must listen to their opinion simply because they have the microphone and may have done a good job acting in some film or other. I am, however, still a sucker for the glamour of it all and love to see the fashion choices made for the red carpet. Therefore, you will be subjected to yet another "Best and Worst" dressed list...mine!
Yes, I might be a tad biased because I am firmly a memeber of "Team Aniston". You can read how I feel about Brad Pitt here. That being said, I do think she looks very fresh and that the gown is very flattering to her. Also, I am so glad she decided to skip her usual black and go for something completely different.
Again, I felt Ms. Hathaway looked fresh and elegant. Not too overdone, just lovely.
Taraji Henson looked fantastic. Loved the dress, loved the hair, loved the jewelry...a terrific total package.
This year, my worst list could have gone on and on. I really felt a little let down by many of the choices this year, but here a few that really stood out, and not in a good way.
I really don't even know what to say to this other than YUCK!
Congratulations to Melissa Leo for being nominated, but is this really the best she could do for her big night? The color matches her hair way too closely and the sihouette is just frumpy personified.
I have to admit that I don't even know who Melissa George is, and I will also admit that I have seen this dress on more than one "Best Dressed" list. For me, it was just a little too over the top and not elegant at all.
Last, but not least:
I love a good comeback story as much as the next guy, but honestly...do you think he smells as bad as he looks like he does? I would think a shower would be a given on Oscar night, but maybe it's just me.
What do you think? Did you watch the show? What dress did you love and which one made you say "not so much"?
