oscars 2009. pretty in pale.

white and silver sparkles were huge on the fashion week runways and they were also a major theme at this years academy awards and i loved just about all of them. there was a fantastic mixture of romantic and geometric. all these gowns are so delightful and they all made me happy. bravo.

i think this gown is my favorite. i am so thrilled penelope cruz won, she absolutely deserved it. and my god did she look stunning and modern and whimsical! her vintage balmain gown floats around her like a beautiful hand beaded cloud. the whole ensemble is just flawless. i love her.

marisa tomei really did me proud tonight. first off, she is wearing under eye concealer, yay! she really selected a gown that made her look pretty, skinny and just fantastic. her delightfully fashion forward versace had all of the nights major trends: color, origami geometric shapes, and asymmetry. the neckline is a bit strange to me, but overall this gown really stands out. it dramatically shows off her killer body and makes me happy.

i don't know if i like this gown. i know i don't hate it. and i know that jessica biel looked stunning. this prada colomn gown is great for her body shape, i think it just bugs me that it is a not so successful version of eva mendes dior at the golden globes. i also hate that she is carrying a black purse. you have "people" you shouldn't even have a purse!!!! 
sarah jessica parker's boobs need a stinkin' oscar!!! wow. up to her freakin' chin. when i first saw this unbelievable dior gown, i had to pause the tv. STUNNING! parker calls the color "barely mint" and it is simply delightful. it is such a happy gown. her hair and makeup are flawless. amazing!
so i can only pray, wish, and hope to have an ounce of taraji p. henson's talent. she is a spectacular and truly humble and lovely person. and she looked hot!!! she rocked the white trend with perfection in roberto cavalli. i just want to be friends with her!
okay, i will admit that i have been known to on occasion watch a little hannah montana on the disney channel, but i would in no way consider myself a "fan." with that said, miley cyrus always seems to rock the red carpet and tonight was no different! this was one of my favorites of the evening. this zuhair murad gown made me swoon. omg! the cinched waist makes the scale of this dress perfection. the back of the gown is just as stunning and interesting. bravo.
i love evan rachel wood and while i am not head over heels for her nude elie saab, i do really love her effortlessness. she totally looked like a classic starlet with the chignon and chandelier earrings. if only i could talk her into dying her hair blonde again.
anne, anne, anne. i love this woman. she looked stunning in armani prive and let it be known this was my second choice for her. please, believe me!!! she looked amazing and i am so happy for all of her success. tonight she was a kockout! i love that she didn't go overboard with accessories, which totally would have competed with her gown. her hair and makeup, as always rocked. this is a solid look for her and i can't wait to see her on more red carpets.


  1. penelope cruz, marisa tomei, anne hathaway i think are my top three. the silhouette and of each of those dresses are paired with the perfect details: delicate vintage laciness in the case of penelope, sleek drama in the case of marisa, and simple glitteriness in the case of anne.

    I really really dislike jessica biel's. You may think it's because I want to punch her, but really it's because I think she was trying too hard with this dress and ended up looking like she left dinner and forgot to untuck the napkin from her shirt.

  2. hey, have you seen any pics of tina fey at the oscar's? i remember thinking she looked really good on stage, but i can no longer remember the dress except that it was also pale and shiny.
