Well, since this is so dang fun, I decided to post a few reviews that I left out last night. And I love how all of you wondered what I thought about a few of the Ladies on the Red Carpet. So naturally, I will deliver my best opinion.
First up...Many of you LOVED Miss Natalie Portman. Maybe you were wondering HOW or WHY she didnt make my "Belle of the Ball" list. Well let me explain. Even though she is itty bitty short, and she has the shortest fingers ever produced on a woman (besides Julia Styles...shudder) AND she reminds me of Food Network's Giada DeLaurentis - I do actually like her quite a bit. I blame "Garden State". Anyway...My only beef was her Grecian Goddess look is sort of becoming her signature. Here is a recent Oscar dress she donned:Pretty sad. It appears to be some type of golden curtain entagled about with cords of despair. THIS years dress, was a VAST improvement even though Im not a huge fan of weaving drapery. AND another thing that DROVE me insane about this dress - was that weird untucked/ unwoven piece in the front. Thats the greek part that tipped me over the edge. I think I could give it one swift tug and the whole thing would unravel. With that said...she looked very elegant and wasn't over done or tragic in any way. And I loved the color choice too, she looked great in the pink.
Nextup: Will someone PLEASE put Carrie Bradshaw out of her MISERY??? I HATED Sarah Jessica Parkers dress. To me, she has completely lost her identity and become her fashion victim character from Sex and the City. "The Girls" if you will, were ready and willing to jump right out of the top...and who could really blame them when her belt was oddly sinched so tight?? To me, she was seriously channelling her inner Dolly Parton. (And thats not a good thing). Her man arms are in serious need of a spray tan, and while we're talking color lets discuss her hair. Brass anyone? The POOFY do' really mirrored her poofy tulle skirt making her look JUST like a cake topper. I just wish someone had told her she looked exactly like a rodeo queen.
With such a low cut dress she really could have used some sort of necklace...but I get why she left it off - considering it would have had to compete with the busy busy zebra striping encrusted with glitter all over the bodice. Interestingly enough, when she did pick out jewelry she went with a mid arm bangle????? Classy. And why o why are there jagged cut edges of the top spilling under her belt and onto the skirt???
Overall I wanted to throw a blanket around her and sit her in a dark corner. I never like a moment where someone starts down the red carpet - and my gut instinct is to reach over and cover my husbands eyes...(While simultaneously covering my own I might add.) sad very sad.
*Its ok with me if any of you did like SJPs getup. This is just my poor stay at home mom opinion.
DID I MISS ANYONE?
