Oscar Wrap

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

Oscar Gowns 2015

Oscar Gown 2015-Round Up

In a word I was underwhelmed this year with the parade of Oscar Gowns. Usually there are a number of jaw dropping dresses that parade the Red Carpet on Academy Award Night but this year….not so much. I don’t know if it was the sudden rain in LA that brought about the dreaded 3D (Designer Dress Delay) or maybe celebrity stylists simply lost steam with all the numerous award shows in the last month. Whatever the case the dresses were beautiful but none in my opinion will go on the books as memorable.   That being said here are a few of the stand outs….

Oscar Buzz…

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Today was THE DAY! And if you don’t have a clue what I am talking about then you either must be:

a) Clueless

b) Living on Mars with no cable, Internet or wifi connection or

c) Possibly strapped into some cryonics chamber- frozen and waiting to   be thawed out…

 The day I am speaking of is: The Announcement of the 83rdAnnual Oscar Nominations. As a resident of the Greater Los Angeles area and more specifically the Hollywood Hills, I am smack dab in the middle of “All and Everything” that is Oscar. In the next few weeks this town will be on a non-stop Buzz-a-thon about all that encompasses this major night of nights in Hollywood. There will be interviews, and press junkets and luncheons for the nominees. James Franco and Anne Hathaway will be on every morning TV talk show expressing their sheer delight to be chosen as the evening’s hosts.  Let’s face it, what the evening really boils down to is one of the BEST fashion shows on the planet. I don’t mean to take anything away from the winners but I ask: Do you remember who won the award for Best Actress in a Lead Role  last year? What if I ask instead: Do you remember what Sandra Bullock was wearing last year…(and you quickly answer the Silver Marchesa Dress that was drop dead gorgeous). Point taken… See you at the Oscars…
