Happy Monday. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are in the recovery phase of last night’s Oscar telecast. I firmly advocate the viewing of all things related to the Oscars and when it comes to the actual day of the show I’m pretty much in a “no fly zone”” to anything that would take my eye off the prize or in this case the fashion unless of course it’s an emergency of epic proportions. Yes…I AM ONE OF THOSE-I watch the pre show, the actual show and the post show -because just between us-the post show often allows attendees to change attire and you reallllly don’t want to miss a moment of fashion. I KNOW this may sound that I’m merely steps away from some sort of fashion detox aka 12 step program but rest assured I only do this once a year. PROMISE!
Bearing in mind that there was so much fashion I must say that this year …for me there were only a few that really left a major impression. Sooo lucky for you this will be “the short list” and if you want more you can find gowns galore from last nights Oscars all over the web.
First and foremost the hands down best dressed of the evening was Taraji P. Henson in Alberta Feretti. It was simple, elegant, figure flattering and in a word perfection. End of discussion
Second on my list was the wonderful Emma Stone. Beauuutiful beyond words in Givenchy Haute Couture. STUNNNING!
Third and this one surprised me until she was on stage because on the Red Carpet I couldn’t get the full effect was Brie Larson in Oscar De La Renta.
Also on the list was Viola Davis… Sleek, simple lines, well fitted and figure flattering. Loved it!
Finally… and this one pains me on so many level. The one look that I thought was overkill. It was just tooooo much. To much bling, to much fabric for the actresses small frame, the crown and the necklace all too much and too heavy. Janelle Monoe is a beautiful woman but the look was overkill. So sorry Janelle-you are lovely the dress didn’t bring out the best in you. I noticed the dress and not you. Not the way it should be. (at least for me). All images courtesy of Bazaar.com
