Last night were the Oscars! So many beautiful looks. My personal definition of a good red carpet ensemble is when the artist doesn't forget about her personal style. That is why my favorite Academy Award look of all time is this Vera Wang dress worn by Michelle Williams in 2006 when Brokeback Montain was nominated. The necklace, the lipstick shade and the gorgeous yellow all complement her personal flair for fashion. I think the whole styling is just perfect!!
My best dressed for this year are Marion Cotillard in Dior Couture, Nicole Kidman in L'Wren Scott, Melissa George in unknown for now and Amanda Seyfried in Valentino Couture. Everything about their look was perfect.
Above are the dresses I liked but I though the styling didn't do them any justice. I also really liked Natalie Portman in Rodarte but she look a little bit too orange on screen. Her look translate a lot better on photographs. Sara Jessica Parker wore a beautiful Dior Couture dress but ruined it by pushing up her boobs to her chin. She transformed the look from something magical to something skanky. Finally, Anne Hathaway looked absolutely gorgeous in Armani Privé. She was radiant and her skin glowed but to me, that is just her natural demeanor. She would glow in a plastic bag. Anne is young and could have gone with something less ordinary, more special and daring.
Let me end this post by saying that Alice and I have decided to part ways. It was short lived but it was fun. We just felt like it would be easier to manage a blog on our own. No fights, no problems...just a lack of management. Hope you will still visit!
