25 February 2013


Last night was my favorite night of the year, Oscar night! Though I did enjoy Seth MacFarlane as host (I loved his joke about Daniel Day Lewis freeing Don Cheadle), I felt that the show just draaaaagged on! And for me, it wasn't the show that caused my feelings of boredom, it was all of the commercial breaks! I found  it overly frustrating... I understand that commercials are how things are paid for, but when the show is running over there really isn't any need to go to a commercial break every 5 minutes!

Moving on, did you see those dresses? BEAUTIFUL! Nothing really screamed "Worst Dressed" to me, which I found refreshing. Of course there were dresses that were just 'eh' (Kerry Washington in Miu Miu, Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta, Olivia Munn). My biggest disappointment of the night was Anne Hathaway in Prada. It was so incredibly blah...

On to my favorites!

Naomi Watts in Armani Prive. She looked amazing, I loved how the dress was cut and it was sparkly!

Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen. Simply stunning!

Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive. Classic in copper!

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture. I'll admit that I wasn't too fond of it when I first saw it. I'm just not a fan of uber-mermaid dresses. But the light pink is great, I love the subtle print on the dress, and she looked great! Plus, I kind of loved that she tripped (not in a mean way, but in a 'that's why she's my fake bff' way)

On a random fashion note. Zoe Saldana. Is it just me, or did her dress last night seem overly reminiscent of her 2010 Oscar dress? It's basically a toned down version... (2013 on left, 2010 on right) I'm not a fan of either. Thoughts?

Honorable best dressed mentions: Sandra Bullock, Stacy Keibler, Halle Berry.

It is always fascinating to see the different outfits. As for the guys- lots of beards this year!

Thanks for the recap. I love all of those ballgowns. Pretty amazing.
