Even Mashable had an Oscar’s recap, so I thought I had to put together my thoughts on the second most important thing surrounding the night– Fashion.
GOLD and metallic was my fashion first impression take-away. Celebrities seemed to shine in it! Jennifer Lopez (aka Jenny from the Black, JLO) was the first I noticed on the E! network and she raved with her usual neckline and slimming booty look. Below her Golden bOOty did shine, literally. Cameron Diaz had some detail that shimmered and even though it was a bit more silver then GOLD, you would think these Power gals called each other to see what they were wearing.
OPRAH had shined earlier in the week winning her Golden Globe while Meryl Streep accepted her 3rd Oscar after 17 nominations. Both these timeless women wore their GOLD with pride even outshining some of the most popular leading ladies nearly 50 years younger. Eat your heart-out Dakota Fanning?
I had to showcase some of these ladies that did some amazing fashion things with their GOLDEN metallics as well. Octavia Spencer won for THE HELP and her beaded detail really accented her beautiful shape and be a winner in my opinion. The Office and also Bridemaids star Ellie Kemper had me double-taking her new big bang look that also showcased a red-kissed hair color. I haven’t gotten to her dress yet! She accessorized perfectly with a must-have clutch, ear-rings, cocktail ring and bangles. Finally Hollywood newscaster, who cares what her name is, had a take on the Gold as well with her touch of green earring that made it a bit edgy and I am always a fan of the empire inspired necklines.
My pick of best dressed was someone I used to watch on What About Brian, Actress Stacy Keibler. Looking at her dress, it would have look a bit over-done for being just a guest or a bit 80’s on anyone else! But the way she owned the dress and her minimalist accessories won me over right away. The wave in her hair made the dress more vintage even though it was very modern. Her open-toe shoes seemed down-to-earth and I spotted her arm plump that made me like her even more! (Arm plump is the extra fat that falls over from wearing something strapless, it’s a normal woman thing).
Did I mention her date?
