Lets Talk Oscars

The good, the bad, the ugly, once again. I must say, I am certainly shocked as to how the ladies were unfortunately unimpressive for the last show of the season. The Globes had bigger guns brought out than tonight. I kept waiting and waiting, and all I got were pale nudes and fake hair (can't take the Tennessee out of Reece, huh). In very particular order, I have the best looks of the night and then the ones that shouldn't have even bothered. Trends for the evening included reds, pale palettes, dirty hair, heavy beading/sequins, clevage and awkward commentary. Miss Mila reigns supreme, and, well, the rest are just there.

Annie Hathaway in an almost vintage 92' Valentino bustle gown before her many hosting changes (which I thought were much better than this)

Sandra Bullock in Vera Wang sans douche ex that ruined her life post Oscars last year. She isn't shining like she did in Marchesa last year, but still looks phenomenal. Her sense of humor while presenting really showed why America loves her.

Matthew Mcconaughey's more than gorgeous wife and handbag designer, Camila, was a favorite in the Kaufman Franco plunging black volume gown
Sharon Stone, age-like 60, channeling black swan, and I still want it. How Sharon Stone of her.

Gwyneth Paltrow has literally been everywhere this past season. From Glee to Country Strong- I kind of love it. She has major confidence, and isn't doing humble anywhere. She is straight sparkle in Calvin Klein. Always and forever my Margot Tenenbaum.

Cate Blanchett is creating buzz in Givenchy Haute Couture. It's sort of a bib, it's a little structured, it's genius.

And the back..

Florence Welch is a blast from the effing amazing past. Her vintage taste and eloquent manor takes me to chicistan. The way she quietly said "um, it's Valentino" in her accent was just as beautiful as her porcelain skin. I am also the president if her fan club.

A few thoughts for Hollywood's confirmed new it girl: She deserves to date JT, her body is sick in her lilac Elie Saab Couture, BUT her stylist needs to be fired because Halle Berry was in the black lace version 3 days ago. WOOPS.

Never the less, her sideswept waves and relaxed attitude made her the number one stunna'.

For the kind of like, but definitely not in love:

Little Hailee is only 14 and she helped Marchesa design her dress. The headband is unnecessary, but since she's so sweet, she deserves some acknowledgment.

ScarJo's hair hasn't been washed, but her curve hugging Dolce &Gabbana lace body con makes up for it.

Mandy Moore in Monique Lhuillier only because she's become skinny again. This is like rolling in Elmers Glue then jumping into a pile of sequins; however, girl looks good. Quote, unquote "Woof, I'm not missing her like candy".

This isn't Dawson's Creek anymore, but Jen Lindley is now wearing Chanel Haute Couture. It looked quite heavy when she was trying to make it down the red carpet, but bringing Busy as her date warmed my heart. Much better!

I wonder if Natalie's unborn baby is as disappointed as I am with her Oscar choice. Yes, it's Rodarte, and yes, they were shut out of the costume design category, but this is no bueno. I am reminded of Alba's pregnant Marchesa one shoulder three years ago and bored.

And for the 'what were they thinking' gals...

The necklace, Amy, the necklace. Her L'Wren Scott dress was great, but her hair and accessories ruined her. Fire that stylist, too.

Reece channeled 60s in her Armani Prive gown and I was about as bored with it as I was the actual show. I almost thought she was Jessica Simpson with that hair piece.

Nicole Kidman's Dior Couture would have been classified under this worst dressed category, but it just hurts the eyes. John Galliano must've been drinking when he designed this, too (fashion joke). Annie's wardrobe changes from the queen of all fashion choices, RZ, to come tomorrow
