my, my…the ladies sure did pull out all the stops last night, didn’t they? many variations in colors, accessories, hair, but my one complaint…what’s with the mermaid shaped dresses? strapless mermaids, spaghetti strapped mermaids, thicker strapped mermaids…yikes!! not every starlet can pull this look off (witness gwyneth’s post-preggers pooch), but they sure did try!!
my best dressed has to go to the queen herself (amidala, that is), miss portman, who made me forget all about that shapeless chloe frock she wore to the golden globes. lanvin was made for the red carpet, and i’m glad someone realized that.
as many women as there were in color, two women in black also made my best dressed list: queen of quirt kirsten dunst in chanel couture, and drew barrymore in atelier versace. an honorable mention goes to vanessa paradis, who also wore chanel couture.
other oscar notes:
– as much as i love hilary swank, i can’t believe she robbed annette benning again.
– as much as i don’t love leo, he’ll get another shot at oscar since he’s making a new movie with marty sorcese
– i’m glad gisele showed up on the red carpet to support her man, but they are looking a bit like jen and brad
– man, oprah looks good!!
