So I know I signed up for make up but an event dripping with this much glam was practically calling out my name!
The red carpet this year was quite uneventful… I mean there were no absolute fashion victims. . Here are my favorite picks from the 2010 Oscars (in no particular order).
Jlo in Armani Privé straight off the runway. I loved this one, the beautiful dress worked perfectly with her curves.
Cameron Diaz in Oscar de la Renta. She’s never been my fashion favorite but she is absolutely stunning in this one. I’m loving the look with her hair down and the red lips.
Sarah Jessica Parker in Chanel. A red carpet favorite looked lovely in this yellow number. Critics didn’t like this one because the dress doesn’t show off her curves. I think she looked great, true it doesn’t show off her curves but so what!
Her hands were heavyly adorned with diamond bracelets and is that a tattoo?
Miley Cyrus in Jenny packman. Apart from the bodice being a little too tight, I like this look.
Rachel McAdams in Elie Saab. A fresh sweep of color, this one reminds me of spring and right on time for the pastel colors of the season. Me likey!
Queen Latifa in Badgley Mischka. She looked absolutely stunning in this pink number. I think the color suits her really well.
Elizabeth Banks in Versace. An elegant dress although it reminds me a lot of the Atelier Versace Penelope Cruz got raves for in 2009. Demi Moore also sported a similar style by Versace this year. Elizabeth wore her’s better than Demi did though.
Helen Mirren in Badgley Mischka. Simple and elegant, living proof that you don’t need to be over the top to look good especially at her age.
Merly Streep in Chris Marc. This is one of my absolute favorites from this year’s red carpet. She looked so classy and sexy in this plunging neck line but still great for her age. Merly was up for her 16th nomination this year for her role in Julie & Julia.
Kate Winslet in Salvatore Ferragamo. Last year’s best actress was graceful in this metallic number. I like this look on her, she some times she comes across plain but this time I think she looked glamourous.
Penelope Cruz in Donna Karan. This lovely number places her safely in my favorites list.
Me no likey…
Zoe Saldana in Givenchy. It hurts me to put her on this list because I absolutely love her, have been a fan since she did “center stage” but this dress… OMG! It starts out nice, really nice even, form the hip upwards but the bottom half of the dress reminds me of fragle rock!
Vera Farmiga in Marchesa. This one looks like it might fly “up in the air” all by itself. Its a nice color I agree but the dress is much too busy.
Mariah Carey in Valentino. I didn’t like this one at all not the style or the fit, it did nothing for her figure. Its a nice color though especially paired with the metallic accessories.
Charlize Theron in Christian Dior. I’m hardly a fan of styles with extras on the bust, this one is no exception. The bust twirl is the design on the dress, without it it’s like a plain prom dress…
Kathryn Bigelow winner of the best director award for the Hurt locker. I would have worn this one to church (probably in a brighter color)
Carey Mulligan in Prada. So an evening dress is not the best place to stick miniature cutlery and scissors… or maybe thats just me.
Diane Kruger of Inglorious Basterds in Chanel. I don’t even know what to say about this one except what was she thinking!
Thats it folks, like I said there weren’t many fashion mishaps on the red carpet this year. Lets see how long this lasts shall we.
Feel free to let me know what you think, maybe I left some one out, or you would like to see someone switch lists? Let me know divas….
Till next time My belles…
