i had my first oscar red carpet party tonight and was so excited that people actually showed up... i should mention i did provide wine, so i can't be guaranteed they actually came to hang out with me... one can hope... it was so fun to not have to sit there alone with my notepad and my poor husband writing down dress designers when i had to go to the bathroom. i like girl-ing out and i feel so blessed to have wonderful friends that like me for the weirdo i am. so much fun.
okay, so the actual dresses. there were some amazing gowns... unfortunately there weren't many uggos. boo. pastel seemed to be the shade of the evening with a touch of black and a splash of red, but i won't keep you in suspense any longer!!!!!! My top 5 choices of the night were... drum roll please, oh whatever.
2. how perfect is gwyneth paltrow!?!? so freaking perfect. this tom ford dress and cape are absolutely ah-maze-balls. she is just so naturally beautiful. come on, right!?!? the epitome of simple elegance.
4. kristen wiig aka "not" drew barrymore looked out-of-control hot. this j.mendel is so beautiful. everything about the styling of this look is my personal style. the dark nail polish, the stacked diamond bangles, the random gold rings. perfection!!!
another elie saab stunner. kate mara, rooney's sister, is an actress in some pretty awful movies, but she looks absolutely beautiful... i feel like this was what jessica alba was trying to accomplish at the golden globes. it's sexy and romantic and i love the weirdo sleeve. beautiful.
yet ANOTHER pastely elie saab on berenice bejo... another beautiful dress. this one is a little less successful than the 2 previous, but berenice is so absolutely beautiful and decidedly french. i adore her earrings and her weird hairdo.
nicole kidman's balenciaga she wore to the 2007 oscars?? i can't get past it. way too similar. i should note one of my guests, bree, picked this as her top choice, but only because i wouldn't let her pick the random asian pr woman in the lavender gown standing behind someone... i have wonderful friends.
um, okay. my feelings are kinda hurt... i feel like natalie portman just phoned this one in... does she even care!?!?! this is a weird dress, right?!?! i like the idea of polka dots on a formal gown, but this one isn't doing the trick. i do NOT like the shape.
there she is again. same damn hair as the last 30 times we've seen her... rooney mara is an interesting character... i don't hate this givenchy, in fact it fits beautifully and the back is absolutely stunning... on anyone else i'd think it was pretty great, but since i'm super over this girl and her euro-trash bangs, i despise it. plus, the boobies are super weird and unflattering. annoyed.
so there i said it! but who cares what i think!?!? what do you think!? best dressed? worst dressed!? do you agree with my picks? tell me! because comments validate my life.
