Oscar Round Up!

The Oscars came and went…and what did yours truly do on Oscar Sunday? I had a HUGE fashion fail. I FELL ASLEEP.
<gasp here>
I know.  To my disapointment I missed the whole thing.  Red Carpet, Awards Ceremony. All of it. Not that this is a valid excuse, but I was still recovering from being sick all week.  
Needless to say I am thankful for all of the internet coverage on the Oscars so I was able to catch up and see the lovely gowns. I was pretty pealsantly suprised, nothing crazy or out of the ordinary, unless you count Sasha Baron Cohen’s act as “The Dictator.”

Now for my picks (not in any particular order):

 My absolute favorite has to be Angelina Jolie, what an improvement from her Golden Globes Dress.
So what do you guys think? I’d love to hear your opinions!

Its Monday…back to reality! Plus Golden Globe roundup

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a relaxing weekend…unfortunately its back to reality and back to work. So the 2012 Golden Globes were about a week ago, and I just now finally had time to digest all of the lovely dresses! I couldn’t pick one, but here are my favorites (not in any particular order)…and well for comic relief here are some of the ones that made me want to ask “WTF ?!?!??” Any opinions?? If you have some, I’d love to hear.

 Emma Stone in Lanvin…Amazing. Love the small cap sleeve and the details of the belt, its looks unique and freshwhich is really characteristic of her.

 Claire Danes in J. Mendel. Love the details on the dress and the unexpected open back. Its definitely a fun dress and even a little edgy for Claire Danes.

 Jessica Alba in Gucci. Such a beautiful dress. The intricate beading is beautiful and the soft violet color looks great on Jessica.

 Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang. Sexy Mama who is not afraid to show those curves. Enough said.

Salma Hyek in Gucci. Another Sexy Mama! She keeps getting better with age, she looks stunning.

Okay, now for WTF?!?!

EvanRachel Wood in Gucci. Okay, well this isn’t a fair WTF choice because well, the dress is actually pretty cool. I just can’t stand the site of this woman. She gives me the creeps!–Maybe freely dating Marilyn Manson has something to do with it. So odd.

Frieda Pinto in Prada. I am a HUGE fan of Prada, Miuccia is my homegirl..really. BUT, I just can’t say many nice things about this dress. The waistline and excess material around her sides just did not do her any favors, and don’t get me wrong she is a very beautiful woman. Okay, i take back my first comment, the color was nice, the only good thing… 🙂

Zooey Deschanel in Prada and Van Cleef & Arpels. I REALLY love Zooey Deschanel, love the New Girl, love the quirkiness, and love her music, and I really wanted to love this dress… but  I don’t. I just don’t. This skirt of the dress is fine, but the top is not. Love green…its actually my favorite color, but not here. Nope, I would have liked to see her in something softer and feminine.
