Oscars 2011: Best & Worst Picks

First, I have to say that the show was pretty boring and predictable, so those of you who missed it--didn't miss much. But I know you're all dying to hear my picks for best and worst dressed, right?!! I know you couldn't even sleep last night with the anticipation of what I might say (HAHA). Honestly, I know most of you won't care but here's what I thought of last nights fashion.

Overall, the fashion was pretty simple. Nothing too over the top, no big fashion moment in my opinion, but are the ladies I think got it right....and those who were better of staying home....

The Real Winners
: Sandra Bullock, Mila Kunis, Halle Berry.

I thought Sandy looked absolutely beautiful and hit it out of the park in this Vera Wang gown. Mila Kunis probably gets top billing for Best Dressed from me. I absolutely looved this lavender lace gown by Ellie Saab. Halle Berry always looks gorgeous--it's a bit sickening to be honest. Her body looks impeccable (of course) in this nude Marchessa gown.

Fashion Kudos:
Helen Mirren and Hailee Steinfeld.

Helen Mirren is a goddess--there, I said it. I love her and she is totally WORKIN' this Vivienne Westwood Couture gown! Hailee looks as cute as button. FINALLY there's a teenager in Hollywood actually dressing like a teenager! This tea length Marchessa princess dress is absolutely adorable on her.

Black Beauty:
Camila Alves.

...and the award for "Dress I would most want to steal" goes to, Camila Alves. This dress is absolutely STUNNING-- I can't stand it!! So simple, classic, and modern. Plus it fits her like a glove. Total red carpet perfection in my book.

Nice, But....: Jennifer Hudson, Mandy Moore, Hilary Swank.

I liked each one of these dresses but I think something went a little wrong with all of them. Mandy Moore looked pale as a ghost. Her dress is gorgeous, but I couldn't stop thinking "Man! girlfriend needs a tan!" Hilary Swank looked nice but needed to turn it up a notch. She wore no jewelry and minimal make-up--Yawn. I'm not gonna lie, I really liked Jennifer Hudson dress, but her hair and the boobage situation killed it for me. (see below.)

Fashion Notes: Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon.

I know that these dresses got a lot of buzz on the net, so I wanna put my two cents in too. They're not my favorite, but I don't think they're the worst either.

Gwyneth looked nice, I'm not sure why everyone is going gaga over this dress--it's okay, at best. (oh, another note: Gwyneth, stick to acting honey, your singing was painful. Just sayin')

Cate's Givenchy dress has practically caused a world uproar. Forget the crisis in the middle east, people are talking about this friggin dress! What do I think? hmm..I loved the structure, but I wasn't crazy about the wart-like beading all over. That's it. :)

Ok, a lot of people thought Jennifer Lawerence looked nice but I think all she was missing was a rescue tube and the Baywatch theme song playing in the background. Pass.

Reese Witherspoon wore this black and white Giorgio Armani Prive, and instantly I thought I was having a fashion flashback. It totally reminded me of Julia Robert's vintage Valentino circa 2001-- even up to the retro pony tail, don't you think? I even went to google it to make sure it wasn't the same dress! I might be crazy but I thought she had a little Julia Roberts aura going on.

Go Home Ladies, Go Home : Nicole Kidman, Marissa Tomei, Amy Adams.

Whoever told Nicole Kidman the priest's stole she had sewn on her hips looked chic, needs to be locked away. It's not cute Nicole.

Marissa, why? Why do you have to do this to me? Why must you make me talk bad about you?? You know how much I love you, but that dress needs to be taken off immediately.

I was surprised to hear how many people like Amy Adams? This dress drove me crazy all night. I hated the cut. The hair was a bore, and don't get me started on the necklace I wanted to yank off her and not because it was 1.4 MILLION dollars in diamonds but because it looked horrendous with her dress.

Now that I got all of that off my chest, I wanna hear what you have to say! What were you're picks for best and worst dressed of the night?


  1. I am sooo with you on all of it. WHY is everyone liking Amy Adams? The necklace was awful with that dress!!! Plus the cut of the dress just wasn't fantastically flattering on her.

    I have to say you know who I secretly liked but am the only one?? Melissa Leo. Maybe it was the idea behind the dress and could have been executed differently/better, but I thought it was very different in a good way.

  2. Oh I know! I thought the collar on the dress was nice and I liked that the eyelet design but I think that if it would've been sleeveless (like a halter dress) with a full bottom skirt, it would have looked better.

  3. LMAO at Cate Blanchett's dress looking like a wart. Hilarious!

    Amy Adams dress was a pretty color. But the style? BLEH. I would have liked to have seen that dress in a sleek halter style or something.

    I thought Reese looked pretty, but agree, it reminded me of a flashback to Julia.

    And you totally nailed it on Jennifer Lawrence. I'm pretty sure I have a dress in my closet from Target in that exact style. Ok, maybe not. But Baywatch all the way!

  4. We're pretty much on the same page. I didn't mind Amy Adams. It's definitely a take on Anne Hathaway's Golden Globes look but she's stunning. Agree 100% with Nicole Kidman. The absolute worst!

  5. Oh my goodness! Αmazing аrticle dude! Тhanks, Ηοwever ӏ am haѵіng troubles ωith
