For the Record

I watch the Oscars. Every year.

I get mad when they give good (but not great) movies the best picture statue (um... hello Crash, Chicago...) I was happy this year. No Country deserved to win even if I had hoped that Schnabel would have won for diving Bell
but I mostly watch to love/hate all over how people look and what they are wearing.

This is what I thought of 2008:
Best in show:
- Katherine Hiegl (escada red/marilyn blond curls)
- Jennifer Garner ( black ruffles- de la renta and necklace-bling! stacked bangles-Bling! earrings-bling! def taking the more than one statement piece Vogue mantra seriously!)
- Marion Cotilliard (Galliano mermaid, wouldn't like that dress on anyone else- damn she's amazing)
- TIlda Swinton (Lanvin with giant silver cuff don't give a F*c! what everyone else says- she looked fab! Would have been a disaster on anyone else)
- Cate Blanchett (Dries van Noten- necklace/earrings combo and detailed hemline sold this)
- Miley Cyrus (red Valentino- age appropriate, glamorous, beautiful)
- Amy Adams (green Proenza Schouler- I knew as soon as I saw the bust-line)
- Julie Christie (dress by?? gloves-LV. Ahead of trend in a red-metallic foil that has been all over the f/w08 runways knee-length dress- looked half her age)

You looked great- who are you?
- Marketa Irglova (black dress by?? won for best original song with that other dude for Once)
- Suzie Templeton (bright red/orange cross-front halter by?? won for best animated short for Pete and the wolf with some other dude)

Also- why is it that women such as this looked great & were NOMINATED & WON but on ANY next-day oscar photo coverage nary a photo of these two lovely ladies on the red carpet can be found!! *sometimes I just hate celebrity

Great dress- WTF happened to your face?
- Cameron Diaz (Dior- seriously nude make-up with a nude dress, crap hair, overly tanned skin and bags under the eyes is NOT a good look)

- anyone in Marchesa (Alba & Hathaway) the frilly-fussy busts were just in the way and Hathaway looked particularly ...gasp...chubby-esp in the arm
- Penelope Cruz (Chanel- normally an A+++ but I just hated the feathers at the bust, the drapped front at the waist was cumbersome and she just looked a
- Diablo Coty (Dior leopard sheath can't rem but if it's true that she once worked as an exotic dancer this outfit made that seem believable)
- Rebecca Miller (christian Lacroix- um no. I preferred Uma's Lacroix peasant girl get-up a few years back to this- yeah I said that)
- Jennifer Hudson (Roberto Cavalli- white- her boobs looked really pushed-up and squished-in not flattering on her figure either. ALT I love you're fired!)

More that I liked than disliked butbut the fashion was pretty boring!!! Lots of RED! and tons of grecian drapping!

What did you think?
