Oscars Fashion

Hi lovelies, I’m back! It’s been quite a long time since I’ve popped up on GGG, and unfortunately, it’s because I’ve been very ill. February has been a rough month health wise and yet what I thought was bad, turned even worse last week. After numerous doctors appointments, more herbal supplements than I can count, we still don’t exactly know what was wrong with me. I’ll spare you all the details but it was probably the sickest I’ve been in my whole life. (And coming from me and many medical issues, that’s saying something.) But rather drone on and on about how bad I was feeling, I’d rather talk about something more fun… like Oscar dresses!

I thought that almost everyone looked phenomenal at the Oscars and loved that the ladies were embracing and embodying old Hollywood glamour. Here are my top pics…

Back in Black (and Silver)

  • Sandra Bullock in Elie Saab Haute Couture: Though this silhouette and style are nothing new, Sandra looked absolutely perfect in this gorgeous gown. I love how she kept her hair sleek and simple and loved how only the bottom 1/3 of the gown was actually sheer making it a beautiful, tasteful choice.
  • Halle Berry in Versace: I’m not usually a huge fan of Halle’s red carpet choices but I’m loving this art deco dress. The vertical stripes are so on-trend and no one could pull off this dress like Halle Berry with her amazing figure.
  • Stacy Keibler in Naeem Khan: I absolutely loved this dress and it’s a pattern that we haven’t really see before. I think the black band perfectly emphasizes her tiny waist and love that she kept her accessories simple (with George Clooney on your arm, what else do you need?)

But the most surprising and the winner in my book of the best silver look? None other than First Lady, Michelle Obama in a custom Naeem Khan gown.

Perfectly Poufy

  • Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta: If I were going to the Oscars, I would pick a gown just like this. It’s romantic and elegant while still being princessy at the same time.
  • Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture: Besides taking a tumble on her way to receive her Best Actress award, Lawrence looked beautiful in this blush colored dress with a major train that was both youthful and daring.
  • Jennifer Aniston in Valentino: This is a departure from Aniston’s usual red carpet attire and I loved it. I think she looked beautiful in this punchy red and the design is classic just like Aniston herself.

I also have to give a special shoutout to Les Miserables actress Samantha Barks, who looked flawless in this gorgeous gown and despite searching for quite some time, I can’t find the designer. Hope the details will come out soon!

And the worst look of the evening? Goes to Real Housewife of Beverly Hills aka archnemesis of Leanne Rimes, Brandi Glanville. I’m not sure why she was at the Oscars or what stylist let her walk the red carpet in this…

  1. I’m so sorry you aren’t feeling well!! I’m sending you lots of warm wishes and I hope you get better soon! Also I totally did NOT see that last dress and I’m pretty glad it escaped my notice. It’s so ugly!! She might as well be naked. I loved Jennifer Aniston’s dress (always love her!) and Jennifer Lawrence’s dress & long necklace in the back. She is too funny and I loved her reaction to the fall. She’s great!

  2. Emily! I hope you feel better soon. It sounds like you’re dealing with such a pain… not know exactly what is wrong must be so frustrating 😦

    I agree that Jennifer Lawrence killed it… and I’m glad that she played her fall off well. I also thought Jane Fonda looked fabbbbbulous. She looks so great for her age!

  4. Ay, girl– I’m so sorry to hear that things are looking sour as far as your health goes. I know how frustrating it can be with allergies and intolerances in the mix too, but just keep your head up! I know things will start to turn around!

    I’m loving Amy Adams’s dress too– gotta love the signature princess poof! But again, I’m definitely far from a fashionista, so my opinion doesn’t really mean much haha πŸ˜‰

    Happy Wednesday!

  5. I call samesies on Brandi Glanville. Disclaimer: she’s my favorite on RHOBH. That aside, why was she there?? That dress makes her look like she’s had her nipples removed.
