So I watched the Oscars last night from red carpet to end. I was watching for a family member of mine who co-wrote and co-directed Up. When they won he didn’t even go on stage, just the other writer/director. Disappointing, but I’m so happy they won multiple awards!!!
I’m so happy Sandra Bullock won, and she looked so pretty last night! I loved the gold dress and the red lipstick with it. Her hair looked perfect – all in all, she and her stylist did a really great job. Her acceptance speech was so touching and she even threw a little comedy in there, she did a great job.
Rachel McAdams looked great in this dressed that looked like it was painted in watercolors. I love the crisscross detail at the top that cinches in her waist. She looks good with any hair color – the blond looks great.
I did not like Zoe Saldana’s Givenchy Haute Couture gown. at. all. The pink sparkly corset top didn’t match the lavender skirt. The ruffles look like a junior high student cut up tissue paper and glued on little pieces – in fact, I think I did that in an art class when I was younger. There was just way too much going on with this dress, it didn’t look like it fit well around her hips and it looked a bit like an art project.
Carey Mulligan’s Prada gown that is embellished with crystals looks like a 1999 prom dress complete with asymmetrical hem line. Her look seems outdated to me – maybe it’s so fashion forward it looks old? Either way, I’m not a fan.
And P.S., what was up with George Clooney all night? He looked so pissed off. When everyone stood to give Mo’Nique (congratulations to her, btw) a standing ovation, he and his Italian lady friend remained in their seats. His hair looked bad too. It was all very odd.
