The Red Carpet has become the most anticipated fashion event of the year, right up there with Fashion Week. Never underestimate the carpets influence, it both follows and dictates the current styles and colors that are considered “fashionable” by those of us who rarely have the opportunity and the funds to really “dress”
Last nights presentation was very entertaining, due to Ellen’s informality in mixing with the celebs, taking selfies ordering pizza and occasionally hinting at her orientation. Pharrell’s rendition of ” Happy” was wonderful, as was Bette’s rendition of “Wings” I still adore Midler and she looked terrific. Pink’s performance of “Rainbow” was flawless, especially when you consider that all of Garlands children were in the audience, a heavy responsibility to say the least.
Leto’s acceptance speech was touching and completely unrehearsed, I was very impressed. Lupita stole the show, she is so lovely and honest and unspoiled by her recent fame.
All in all everyone attending was beautifully put together. The gowns were all beautiful due to minimal black, pastels were in abundance. The men’s attire was by in large classic, thank goodness the bow tie tux is back, the vest showed up as well. The blue tux and white dinner jackets were a welcome addition to the men’s choices.

It’s here again, the Oscars. Just like many others, I really didn’t get a chance to see any of the films that were nominated. No matter, I’m only really interested in the gowns and tuxedos worn at the event. I’ll watch the films after I see who wins. Here’s a wonderful compilation of the gowns worn by all the best actress winners since the first awards ceremony in 1929. A handy tool in case you fallen asleep before they finally get to the best actress category, like I inevitably do every year.
Mediarun has done the work by putting together this infographic of all the gowns that have been worn by Best Actress winners since the first year the Oscars were held in 1929. Great job guys!
Award shows bore me to tears…I barely even know who most of the participants are. All those thank you’s are agonizing. I much prefer to see the red carpet shots the next day. For me there are only three categories, “Wow thats perfect” “What was she thinking?” and “no opinion” which is probably the worst thing I can say….Professionally I must review them, it’s my job to know what works and what doesn’t so here we go….the Wows first, based on the appropriateness of the garment on the woman who wears it.
Perfect choice, lovely
Sexy and so underplayed,perfect
A bit over the top but it works
Great dress for you
Chic and so appropriate
This is the definition of age appropriate, beautiful
Less is always more
Very modern, love it
Unusual garment that works, great proportions
Now for the inappropriate garment match with the woman wearing it
Trying too hard to make a splash with that fishtail and could you push them up any higher?
It’s not a garden party..and why would you want to look older?
We love you Julia but those sleeves are awful this gown does nothing for you.
Uma you’re not Cher..too much going on and none of it is beautiful.
Julia this does nothing for your figure, but kudos for the Less is More
A stunning dress but you’re not at the ball Cinderella…too much dress.
The 80’s are long gone,what’s with that shoulder action? Thats one busy garment
Too much skirt and that belt has to go..looks like the Red Peril has arrived
Edie, Christmas is over why look like you have been re-gifted?
Tina…I don’t understand this at all
Next time leave the boyfriend at home
Not the best color choice for a blond, next time go black
Where do I begin? Everything is wrong
